I actually LOVE the weddings we get to film where we show up, without actually having met the couple and the family in person before, but you already feel like old friends when you arrive. I loved these two families, and it was a pleasure to pull off one of the biggest surprises in Life Stage Films history. The film you can view above was what we call a “Same Day Edit”. It’s where we shoot all day, and actually edit a highlights video to show at the reception that night! The catch with this one, is that it was a total surprise to the bride and groom, as a gift from the father of the bride, John. We even filmed Kelly & Jeremy’s reaction as they watched this video LIVE for the first time. Especially sneaky of us was we showed the video to the 300+ guests only 30 minutes after the first dance, which we included in the final video. Kelly & Jeremy’s reaction is classic, and I’ll show it on the blog in a few weeks. You don’t want to miss that!

In the mean time, check out the details and the emotions of this wedding day. The weather was perfect, and the atmosphere of excitement was even better. Some of my favorite moments captured was of course the moment Jeremy saw Kelly in her dress for the first time during the “First Look”, but also the excitement as the girls got ready and especially when Jeremy’s mom pinned his boutonniere on him. And cowboy boots!? Heck yeah! Loved that. It was a perfect way to top off this beautiful country wedding at the Duplin winery in NC.

Please enjoy this short film of your wedding day Kelly, Jeremy, and the rest of the family. It was a pleasure filming your incredible celebration. It was one to remember. Never seen anyone dance with a “stanky leg” so well. :)

ALSO…A HUGE thanks to my good friend and very talented wedding filmmaker John Moon from Northernlight Filmworks in Indiana, for coming down and giving me the creative support we needed to pull this off.
