Melanie and Kurt are the kind of couple that people want to be around. They laughed and smiled almost more than humanly possible. They just had the vibe, and their friends and family seemed to be having almost as much fun as these two. As a pair, they fit the title of the song most definitely.
These two have it going on, they know how to play the game "Let's make a fun wedding film" and they went to extravagant lengths just to capture great moments on camera. They ran through grassy fields, braved the hot sun walking through the vineyard, danced on fountains, and even played outside the sun roof of the limo. All in all, it was more than successful, and the day felt like another smooth ride in a limo.
I met Melanie back in High School while she worked as a Young Life leader, and that was just shortly before she moved off to Missouri, where she met Kurt at school. 4 years later, they were getting married and needed a videographer. It just so happens that their friend Kelsey, who sat by me on a plane from Atlanta to Minneapolis, (just 7 months before) got to see my videos and such and recommended they checkout my stuff online and Melanie remembered me from years ago. Hmm. Odd or God?
Congratulations on a wonderful, unique, Melanie and Kurt, I was privileged and delighted to be a part of your day, and thank you for making it such a blast for me as well. Also, thanks for saving a spot in the limo, that was also a blast!
