I was very excited to film Markie and Josh's big day for three reasons. One, the bride and groom were really excited about their film and I knew they were a great couple. We hadn't met in person, but through Facebook I got to know them a little and looked forward to being a part of their event. Two, I knew I would be working with Megan Dacy, a talented photographer whose wedding I will be filming this summer. And three, the wedding was taking place at the venue where my best friend got married 10 years ago. Even though it's been completely remodeled, it was neat returning to the place where I was a bridesmaid for the first time.
The wedding was great! Markie has this lovely natural easy beauty that was perfectly complemented by a super duper cute dress. She and her girls worked on fixing up her hair for a long time, and finally Markie threw in the towel and just decided to wear it down. I love that she didn't get worked up that something didn't "cooperate". Josh was kind and charming and a classic doting husband. These two have been together for six years and it was neat to see how close they are.
Brent and I enjoyed putting this highlights together. I had the song in my library for a while but didn't have the right couple to use it with. When Markie and Josh had their first dance to Damien Rice's "Blower's Daughter," I knew it was a perfect fit!
