As a wedding filmmaker you always hope for a beautiful backdrops to film against. Beautifully lit hotel rooms, houses or grand ballrooms with space to work in is always a big plus. With Megan and Bobby’s Wedding I had the pleasure of two great settings.The first great setting was Megan’s parents house. A classic Winter Park home with Spanish stylings through out. Lots of windows and french doors let in great ambient light and I love natural light. The house its self had wonderful furniture and great architecture to shoot through and frame with. Megan was a breeze to work with, allowing Damon Tucci and I a lot of creative control. The house, the bride and the bridal party all came together to create a perfect atmosphere. I love this bridal prep for so many great reasons.

The second great locations was the Ritz Carlton. The hotel itself is always beautiful location to shoot. What made it incredible was the work of Brian & Richard with Flourish. From the cocktail hour to the main ballroom, they transformed the space beautifully with fabric, furniture, floral, lighting, draping and unique creative touches. The vibrant red used created such lush warmth to the room. It was the perfect back drop for all the events, especially the first dance. I cant stress enough how lighting alone creates such a dynamic backdrop and mood. As a filmmaker, I was loving every detail. Speaking of mood, DJPJ with Atomic Entertainment kept the placing humming with great energy.

“It don’t mean a thing, if it aint got that swing”! To phrase a great tune, this all wouldn’t have meant a thing if it didn’t have a swing. The swing is the couple and the family and friends that where behind them. All the best productions can’t be pulled off with out a perfect cast and Megan and Bobby had a great crew behind the scenes but more importantly surrounding them in front of the camera. Now I must admit, Megan and Tara brought me a great bottle of sparkling wine and a wonderful thank you card. Any one that knows me, knows how easily I can be bought with good wine or food. Now with saying that, I did really love editing this video. All the elements where there to create a wonderful wedding film. They created the perfect environment for their wedding both through environment but more importantly through emotion and joy. Thank you Susie Weiss with Wonderful Weddings for this great gig.
