So, I'm sitting here thinking "what can I write up about Lauren + Jason's wedding...?" Maybe how beautiful the bride is? Or, how handsome the groom? Or, maybe how wonderful their families are? Well, all that's true. But, there was just something special about this wedding that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it was the amazing view during Lauren + Jason's wedding ceremony - wow! Or, it could have been the cool, fresh "up north" air of Petoskey, Michigan - I don't know. Whatever it was, it was special. And, for those that were there that weekend, they know what I'm talking about.
What I do know, is it was definitely a pleasure hanging out with Lauren, Jason, their families and friends capturing their most special day. The Inn at Bay Harbor is a great venue for a wedding and we're already looking forward to going back. Thanks so much to event manager Samantha Migiel: you did an amazing job!. We had a blast working with Kerri and Breegan from Kerri Banyas Photography (I'm sure they captured some amazing images, so check them out!), The Groove Party had the outside dance floor shakin', Monarch Floral had the place looking elegant, and Bella e Dolce created one beautiful wedding cake. Miriam Jerris (from the Wedding Connection) performed the wedding ceremony and made it a very personal and touching ceremony, as only she can - bravo!
"Oh my goodness - this is just amazing! I keep watching it over and over the whole time crying!! You are super talented! I can't thank you and your wife enough for all of your hard work. Can't wait to see the whole film!"
After watching her finished film for the first time, Lauren wrote: "Jason and I watched the video and IT IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! I cried the entire time ;) I was telling Jason that the best thing I did for this wedding (besides marrying him, of course) was selecting you as our videographer. We just LOVE it! You are one talented guy! Thank you and your wife for everything!"
