If a picture is worth a thousand words, then there simply aren’t enough words to describe the value of a beautifully curated video! Creating wedding videos for our BG couples is one of the ways we bring the joy and emotion of their special day to life.
The beauty of Stacia and Nate’s wedding day at Sweet Heart Winery was next level. It’s one thing to witness the union of a couple as they become husband and wife. But nothing could have prepared us for the beauty of watching a group of people become a new family right before our eyes.
Stacia’s sweet boys were first in line to share an emotional first look with their mom in her stunning wedding gown. Tears were flowing as the reality of becoming a new family sank in. We all needed a moment to compose ourselves as her boys stepped aside, holding a box of tissues, and prepared to watch their mom exchange her first look with Nate.
It’s a really good thing we had those tissues handy because it was one of the most emotional first looks we’ve ever seen. Standing by the river, the couple allowed the significance of the moment to truly sink in. Each had prayed for someone to love and cherish, and it was completely overwhelming to watch as they realized that their prayers had been answered beyond anything they ever imagined.
The couple exchanged private vows, beginning with Stacia reading a prayer she had written to God about her future spouse. The words perfectly described Nate, the person she asked God to bring into her life before she even met him!
Nate fought to hold back tears as he shared with Stacia exactly how much she means to him.
After their private vows, it was a joy to spend time taking photos of this beautiful new family before the ceremony began.
We all watched through tears as Stacia’s boys escorted their mom down the aisle. Walking arm in arm with them toward her new husband perfectly signified a beautiful new beginning.
Together, the four of them lit candles to symbolize that not only were Stacia and Nate celebrating their marriage, but that it was a true celebration of the joining of a family.
Joy overflowed into the reception as Stacia made her grand entrance. She began with a choreographed dance with each of her boys to the song “A Million Dreams” from the Greatest Showman.
Mere words can’t describe the beauty and sweetness of the moment, and I simply couldn’t hold back the tears. Nate stepped in at the end to finish the dance with his new bride, and it was the perfect way to symbolize this family becoming one. All the dreams they’ve had about this moment finally came true!
The dance was so stunning that we recreated it out in the field at sunset, and it was the perfect way to end the evening. Those images were some of my absolute favorites from the entire day.
During a typical wedding day, we capture literally hundreds of moments on camera. But sometimes a love story is best told through video because it truly breathes life into all those beautiful images.
Best of luck trying to make it through Stacia and Nate’s wedding video without needing a tissue or two! Their love and joy is tangible and it was an honor to spend this day with them!
