Entries in Temple wedding (5)
And yet another amazing wedding today!!! You might have heard of the world famous wrestler Carson Kuhn ... National Champ, three state championships (undefeated all three years), USA world team. Well, it looks like someone finally took him out... Kara Smack.
I filmed Carson twelve years ago in his neighbors wedding video (his sister went on to marry the bride's brother) and he still remember that video and had several special requests to have put in the film - try to guess what they are :).
Both Carson and Kara served missions and wanted their mission name badges in the film and Kara surprised Carson with some patriotic shoes for the first look - so lot's of little details to make their wedding film unique to them.
Caron's uncle Nathan Ivie was so great to shoot with and is just an awesome guy. Check out his work at http://www.nathaniviephotography.com/
This song from www.themusicbed.com was just perfect for them! "You Are Mine feat. Spencer Combs & Holley Maher" by Secret Nation
OK, these two are just the most adorable couple. I want to just hug them! I love this video because it is full of love and light. (That's my family motto, "Love and Light")
If I ever feel a little down or overwhelmed I come and watch my videos on my blog and it makes me instantly happy to see couples like Tim and Grace full of joy and happiness. Life isn't easy and it's definitely not a bed of roses, but there are moments like this that make it all worth it!
My goal is to capture those moments so we can focus on these good times and be reminded that there is a Father in Heaven who loves us and we will feel this way (x's one million) when we are in His presence :).
Not only are Rusty and Jenna incredibly kind, loving and spiritual - they are crazy fun! Had a great time in Southern California escaping the snow storms in Utah :)
Jacki loves candids and wanted something a little different, so that's what we captured! Easy to film a bride when she's a photographer (http://jackistoddard.blogspot.com/) and knows what she wants. What's even better is that she trusts the professionals she's hired and we really had so much fun. Today was just about perfect - 55 degrees in February sounds great to me!!!
What you see on the outside isn't always the full story. The wedding video shows a beautiful couple having the time of their lives. Jacki's mother died from breast cancer and her father was killed in an accident (that's why you don't see them in the video) and Andi had food poisoning so we had to stop filming several times for him to try and throw up (that's why there are a bunch of shots of Jacki by herself.) Jacki & Andy could have focused on the negative yesterday, but instead chose happiness with the cards they had been dealt. They chose the song "Good Life" because that's what they make it. Remember - what you focus on expands, so focus on what you want. Hats off to Andy and Jacki!
Special shout out to Abbey from akstudiodesign.com. She was so great to work with today and took some amazing images they had up at the reception. In fact, people were asking if we were a team. Great to work with vendors who are professional and want to help others succeed so the bride can get what she wants. Thanks!
