I’d like to start out with a little confession. On wedding days during important moments like ceremony and toasts, we are often so laser focused on our cameras, audio and lighting that we can’t really listen and absorb what’s actually being said in the moment. So, later when we sat down and actually watched our footage from Ashley & Stephen’s ceremony we were blown away by their vows and started to get really excited about putting together this film for them. Their vows and delivery where so beautiful and heartfelt, and gave us a really solid foundation for building this story and showing the connection between these two lovely people.
We also loved the gift Stephen gave Ashley before the ceremony, a keychain with “3 words” inscribed on it. We learned that these two used to work together and would say “3 words” instead on “I love you” on their company chat. It’s little gestures like this that are what we’re looking to capture to reveal more about our couple’s personalities and story. Of course Semple Mansion on a windy autumn day was the perfect backdrop for this Gatsby-esque wedding. The fall leaves and shimmery decor gave this entire day a golden glow that visually tied this film together.
