Because we drove to Pennsylvania, we were able to bring down more equipment than we normally would to capture a destination wedding. We used a 5ft Kessler Cineslider for a few of the establishing and detail shots and the rest of the shots were captured using a 70-200 on a monopod and a 17-35 on a GlideCam. Nice and simple.

Folly:
I recorded most of the folly used during the wedding day with a Zoom h4n. During the thunder showers I escaped outside to grab a few minutes of the storm which I ended up using at 4:31 and 5:51. In addition to adding ambience, I beefed up the glass clinking at 4:01, piano playing at 5:14 and the thunder strike at 5:54.

Post Editing:
Most of the soundtracks used have been ripped apart, sections lengthened, shorted and moved around. At 0:57 I took a liberty by holding on the dress a few beats longer. I achieved this by adding a reverb as I quickly faded the soundtrack which allowed the last note to ring out for as long as I needed.

The weather played a significant part in telling the story of this day, so when the rain finally came, I felt like it needed a subtle change in feel. In addition to adding the rain foley, at 4:32 I introduced a drum loop that I created to give the illusion of time dragging for a measure.

At 5:32 I decided to throw the soundtrack through a bunch of filters to dirty it up a bit… as the scene called for. lol
