When it comes to my wedding video business, apparently, I am either a glutton for punishment or I enjoy taking on a challenge.
This last weekend was no exception. With two days’ notice, I was booked for to shoot a wedding video 7 hours away from home, in San Antonio, Texas. Not a big deal, except two days isn’t much time to get a trip prepared. We were able to book a hotel less than 5 miles from the church and the reception sites, which was nice, but, with a major highway closure, it still took at least 45 minutes to get anywhere.
This was definitely an adventure.
I typically get to meet my couples before their wedding day, but, this booking was so last minute, that my first encounter with Brooke was not until I and my team showed up to shoot. It was a little unnerving, but, Brooke was quick to make us feel welcome. Shepard was no different. They were both incredibly grateful and wonderful to work with.
It was a great day. Starting off shooting in an incredible suite at the JW Marriott Resort, then moving to the Alamo Heights United Methodist Church for the ceremony.
After a quick post-ceremony creative session, we hustled back to the Marriott where we would end up the evening with the reception.
As neat as everything was, the reception was amazing. Tricia Hamil (with Viridian Design Studios) did an incredible job. I, personally, have never seen that many roses (nor have I ever seen diamond studded roses) and it was an amazing sight her team take a basic ball room and transform it into a wonderland.
The music for the evening was provided by Blind Date and (as always) they hit it out of the park.
All in all, it was so much fun, I was sad to see when the evening was over, but, it was a night that will not be quickly or easily forgotten!
Congrats Brooke and Shep!
