Black and Gold Art Deco Wedding (2)

This gorgeous Great Gatsby themed wedding comes to us from Robb McCormick Photography, based in Columbus, Ohio! Here’s Robb to tell us more:

Greg and Tiffany were married on a sun-kissed, early April day. The fresh spring day began at the Columbus Renaissance as the girls giddily had their make-up and hair done and the men carefully put on their ties and cufflinks. The excitement of the day was felt the second we arrived.The couple then headed to the rooftop of the hotel to see one another for the first time. The moment was perfect as Greg gasped at how beautiful his bride looked. Greg and Tiffany, along with their bridal party enjoyed an urban, rooftop photo shoot overlooking the Columbus city skyline.

Today’s featured wedding video comes to us from Aperina Studios, based in San Francisco, California! Here’s the Aperina Studios team to tell us more:

Located in California’s finest wine country, Napa Valley, Brix was a perfect location for Dan & Pamela’s Wedding. The beautiful couple danced away in the sunset with gorgeous vineyards and gardens in the background. We loved filming the nature and spectacular views of the Mayacamas mountains. The heat was there to challenge us, but I love how we pulled of an amazing story of this couple. As a Napa Valley wedding videographer, we love to tell stories in these enchanted valleys.

On a technical side. We used 5 cameras (Canon 5D MK III DSLRs) and many “L series” lenses. Audio wise, we had the groom and officiant mic’ed up for the ceremony using mini lavs, additionally pulling a feed off of the mixer (for backup). For reception, we simplified the audio, but had a few duplicate audio recorders running from the mixer. We used a Jib to give us those cinematic shots that are hard to get with regular tripods or monopods.

Looking over the shots, we did an amazing job “harmonizing” shots and making sure they work together. We usually plan our camera layout prior to the ceremony and reception to give us the shots I want. More importantly, so we can work effectively and to get the best coverage possible. With experience, we are able to plan our layout within minutes, but each wedding is a challenge.

Our opening aerial shots, I do for fun. I love flying my personal camera in the air to get an amazing view while I’m at a beautiful location. We edit and color-correct/grade in FCPX (I love Final Cut) using built in color correction and a few plugins. Over the years I understood a basic principle I go by: with amazing footage, you can make an amazing film! So we do just that. Enjoy this short film!

Congratulations Dan & Pamela, and thank you to Aperina Studio for sharing! For more information about Aperina Studio, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.

Peacock Blue and Coral Fall Farm Wedding (12)

This colorful and festive farm wedding comes to us from Eileen K Photography, based in Minneapolis, MN! Here’s Eileen to tell us more:

Legacy Hill Farm was the perfect fall location for Nichole & Ryan’s wedding day. I’m in love with the relaxed and warm feel the farm brings to everyone that is lucky enough to spend a day there. It is an authentic working farm with crops, chickens, sheep & pigs! It has been a joy to see this location transform over the last year into the perfect wedding venue.

Today’s awesome guest post comes to us from Amanda Lankford of Amanda Jewel Floral + Design, based in Atlanta, GA! Enjoy:

It’s not surprising that springtime is a floral designer’s dream! Spring is all about newness with blossoming blooms and everything returning to the vibrant green hues we know and love about this time of year. It’s also the start of wedding season, which is amazing for foraged floral creations due to the amount of budding flowers, lush greenery and blooming branches. This time of year, we encourage you to be creative and take advantage of all the free goodies spring has to offer!

Fun and Elegant Vineyard Wedding in Connecticut (3)

This gorgeous vineyard wedding comes to us from the videography team at NST Pictures, based in New York, NY! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

We were living in South Eastern Connecticut at the time and we were surrounded by quite a few Vineyards. We wanted to be outdoors, using nature as our backdrop and a tented reception was how we both envisioned the night. I was far from the bride that dreamt of a ballroom/black-tie situation. (Not that there is anything wrong with that!)
