A ll you need in the world is love and laughter. That’s all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other. – August Wilson
The August Wilson quote above was used by Apryl’s matron of honor when toasting the bride and groom. The sentiment sums up Apryl & Erwin perfectly. They love each other completely and laugh almost nonstop! It was amazing to me how connected these two were to each other the entire day. Sometimes weddings can be so hectic that the couple can forget to relax and simply enjoy each other. However, Apryl and Erwin were enjoying every minute! It was obvious to me when shooting their wedding video that their love ran deep. They truly are each other’s best friends. Apryl and Erwin both wrote heartfelt letters to each other which they read while they were getting ready. They also wrote amazing personal vows. I loved the color combinations of royal blue and canary. Their wedding was simply elegant, fun, and inviting.
The location was at the McKinney Cotton Mill. The Cotton Mill is located in McKinny, TX just north of Dallas. It opened its doors in 1910 and during the 1960's it was the largest denim manufacturer in the word before closing its doors in 1969. The Cotton Mill is an amazing venue just from a wedding videography standpoint! I could waste days out there shooting all the intricate details.
Apryl and Erwin had a lot of very unique details in their wedding. The couple placed a high priority on preserving memories(hey, this is my kind of couple! :) ) So, the aisle was lined framed pictures of the couple. The reception had the same theme, where pictures old and new were used as decor. The numbered tables had pictures of the lovely couple at the age represented by the table number. So, table five had pictures of five year old Apryl and Erwin. Adorable and very creative! :)
Thank you so very much Apryl and Erwin for choosing me to be your wedding videographer. I had a ball, and it was so much fun to create your wedding video. You are a special couple, and I can't wait to see what life has in store for you!
