Catherine and Matt | Iron City

As Catherine and Matt's wedding planner stated, their wedding was "It was a beautiful Great Gatsby meets southern charm meets downtown Birmingham vibe." The wedding was covered with beautiful draping and flowers. It was stunning!

Kate is pretty awesome.  She and Jonathan truly are a match made in heaven!  We loved working with their families!  This is what she had to say about her film: "Angela I am at a loss of words. You and john and your team really made our wedding into one of the most beautiful memories I have. Thank you for hard work, caring for details, and expressing such talented creativity. We love it." - from bride Kate.

Eunice and Garrett | NYC Wedding Film

New York City is intoxicating.  There really is no other word that I can use to describe it.  Traveling there for Eunice and Garrett's Jewish wedding with a pop-up ceremony in the middle of The Highline Park was one of the highlights of our summer.  We toured The Standard Hotel, Central Park, Chinatown, got lost and ended up in Brooklyn, and now we have the city in our blood.  LOVE it and can't wait to go back!

One week after the NYC wedding, the couple celebrated the bride's heritage in a Vietnamese wedding reception.  It was then that we were able to show a fabulous piece that John edited.  I love this photo from Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography.  It was taken when the couple 1st saw their wedding video!

Many thanks to Anita Kanellis of AK Brides, HotHouse Design Studio, McWane Center, Design Productions and Gia's.  A REALLY BIG thank you to DJ JJ of Fonix Entertainment out of Atlanta.  He went above and beyond to help us with some technical difficulties from the house sound system.  He was absolutely awesome!  

What do you think of the film?

Kelli & Robert | The Club | Birmingham Wedding Video

Sunny yellow flowers everywhere that perfectly matched Kelli's sunny disposition.  That is what stands out most about this wedding.  Kelli had assembled a great team of vendors which always makes the day easier, smoother, and really better.  Anita Kanellis of AK Brides was the planner, David Shirk of Unplugged Photography (and Ari) were doing their thing that they do so well, Coats Classic Cars was on site, Design Productions made it all lovely, Heidi Elnora designed Kelli's perfect wedding gown, and The Club's service at the wedding reception was exceptional. Watch Kelli and Robert's highlight video to see the fun!

Michael and Heather | The Highlights | American Village

Michael has a smile that makes you want to smile. Beautiful Heather has this way that she looks at her groom.  Their love is just contagious!  It really was a picture perfect day at the American Village.  It wasn't too cold, wasn't too hot, it was just right for a magical wedding.  And Michael gets the award for BEST REACTION EVER TO HIS BRIDE WALKING DOWN THE AISLE!!

I would say that it was an all-star team on their wedding; we were just so happy to be included in with everyone!  It never gets old when a couple chooses us to share in their wedding day. With a romantic ceremony in the chapel and a fun barn reception, it was a day that this couple (and their families) will always treasure.  

Enjoy their wedding highlights below!

Christina & Phillip | Same Day Edit

There is a certain amount of an emotional high that you get from doing same day edits (SDE).  It is like sprinting for 12 hours straight and hopefully if all goes as expected, you get the prize - your bride crying because she liked it so much.  

SDEs are not something we really advertise that we can do, but when our bride Christina called after watching one at a recent wedding in Ohio, we just had to do it for her.  She wanted to be able to give this awesome gift to her groom and their family and friends.  And she wanted it to be a surprise.  

SDEs are generally a short clip of the entire wedding day.  Sure, not everything can be included because of time restraints.  But for our bride and groom, we filmed some getting ready (everyone made lovely by the talented team at Joyce's with Melissa Moore Bogardus as the lead), the amazing photo shoot with the couple, the ceremony and a little of the reception (with beautiful flowers by KG Designs).  Of course during all of this, the editing had already started.  Once the 1st dance was over, that was our cue to start pulling it all together so that when the band took a break and Lamar from Jamm Entertaiment gave us the nod, we would show the wedding guests what we had been up to that day.  One of the greatest parts is being able to allow the guests to be a part of the entire day. 

It took a lot of planning on every vendor's part.  We couldn't have done it without the help of many people.  Firstly, Anita Kanellis of AK Brides was Christina's planner.  I called her immediately when Christina called me about doing a SDE for her.  The day had to be meticulously orchestrated and Anita did a fantastic job.  

Christina and Phillip had a very elaborate setup for their reception to say the least.  You can see the cake (made by Jan O'Donnell) suspended in a swing in the video below! During the early part of the setup, John had checked with the Ross Bridge tech dept about the projector and screens to make sure the guests would be able to see the video.  (Lauren with the hotel was equally wonderful throughout the whole process.) As the night progressed, Andy Tolar with Design Productions saw that a problem was arising between his setup and ours and we got a late night phone call.  How wonderful was he to notice a potential problem, call us and then proceed to fix it (all while delaying getting his work completed).  Kudos!

A little pre-planning meeting with Frank Carnaggio and Nicole Muras with Carnaggio Photography was necessary for everyone to be able to work toward a common goal.  Thanks to them for being so great to work with!  And to James Meredith with Birmingham Bridal Carriages for letting us speed past you in order to "get the shot!"

And finally to our team.  Chris Carr with Carr Video Productions and Dylan Lard.  We could not have accomplised the work of 10 without the help of you both.  Thank you for giving up your Saturday to come have some high-stress fun with us.  I, Angela, watched my wonderful husband keep calm and focused all day.  He knew that shots that he wanted, he knew where they were going to go before they even happened. He created this beautiful masterpiece with 9 minutes to spare AND he made it look easy!  I'm the luckiest girl around.

Maggie & Philip | Vestavia Hills CC

We met Maggie and Philip through their awesome wedding planner, Beverly Andrews of Engaging Celebrations.  Their wedding weekend was going to be something pretty special and we were honored to be able to document every fun moment!  

I had heard through snippets of conversations with Carol Riley of Lillie's Flowers that the flowers were going to be out of this world, with a heavy emphasis at the rehearsal dinner.  I also had heard that Park Lane in Mountain Brook was going to be transformed with the help of drapery and lighting by Andy Tolar with Design Productions.  All I can say is WOW!!!!!!! I am in LOVE with those chandeliers! 

The wedding day begins with a calm bride, which is always nice!  Jerrod Brown of Jerrod Brown Studios, has the wonderful abiltiy to make a bride calm anyway.  It was H-O-T, but we made the best of it.  What can you do?

The ceremony was held at Vestavia Hills UMC with the reception at the Country Club up the street.  Great director at the church, by the way.  It is not often that I walk into the reception venue and my mouth drops open at the site of the cakes.  Shannon Pardo of Sweet Spot Confections is someone to keep your eye on!  I loved the bride's cake for it's elegance and the groom's cake was just impressive with the details.  They definitely were the talk of the reception.  Compositionz from Music Garden had everyone up on the dance floor all night.  I even got a little booty bump from the groom.  Take that, John!
