Elopement giveaway // 2-25-18

I was asked by Elope Louisville to be a part of an incredible team of vendors and to provide my services for a special wedding giveaway. The catch was that the time between the day I was asked and the wedding day was only about four weeks! Even crazier is that when we announced the winners, there was only two weeks until the wedding! Meaning, that most every vendor, and the bride and groom, only had that much time to bring together what usually takes months and months. 

Let me tell you what - everyone did a perfect job. I showed up on the wedding day with a huge smile on my face. The ceremony spot was so perfectly decorated - the calligraphy, florals and atmosphere were breathtaking. And then I finally met our couple.

Small world - Kate grew up on the same cul-de-sac as my wife! Fast forward twenty years and here I am filming her big day! Chris & Kate were such a perfect couple to work with. They made mine and Susan's (Love Hunters) job so incredibly easy. A couple this in love completely deserved this wonderful day. And it wasn't the fact that were so in love - they were so thankful. They put all their trust in us and never stopped thanking everyone.

The first look came and went. It was such a special moment, made even better with Chris bringing music on his phone into the atmosphere. As you know about my films, music changes everything - and this first look was everything!

Now, first looks between Bride & Groom are always special - but when you add a Dog into the mix, it's pure joy. Fred was dressed to the nines, and he was so loving. Even throughout the ceremony he would just roam around and make sure he let everyone have a chance to pet him.

Speaking of the ceremony - these two are so in love that they kept hugging each other through the event - never wanting to be apart. When it ended I still remember catching Susan's eye and we both mouthed the words, "so perfect". I'll always remember this small, intimate moment. And I'll never stop reminding myself of how lucky I was to film it.

All of this could not have happened without the incredible guidance and vision of Maggie from Weekend Wedding Warrior. Be sure to check out Elope Louisville if you or anyone you know is interested in an adventure such as this! And it certainly wouldn't have been so perfect without the brilliant team of vendors listed below. Check out all of their Instagram pages by clicking on their name.
