The Best Wedding Gift Ever

If you've watched enough of our wedding videos, you'll notice a wedding day gift and card trend. Often on the a wedding day, the bride and groom present each other with handwritten cards filled with anticipation and excitement for the moments to come. It's a sweet gesture that can calm the wedding day jitters, it makes an awesome keepsake, and it's a pretty special on-camera moment. Not all couples participate in this particular trend, but when Nick decided he wanted in, he went all out! What super special (ultra adorable 😍) surprise did Nick give Brittany on their wedding day?!

It's Not About The Distance

Hello again! I'm back with another wedding to share! Woohoo!

I introduced to you the bubbly and lively Rebecca + Mike. Even though they're competing Cubs/ Cards fans ;), they happily survived a long distance relationship to bring them to their amazing wedding day.

It's impossible not to smile while watching their same day edit wedding film! Check it out for yourself!

What a happy, happy day! Cheers!

New Trails

We meet again! First, if you haven't caught on yet, let me start by saying how much we adore outdoor weddings. Second, we also love a good winery. Put them together and you have a match made in heaven!

We were stoked to find out that Caitlin and Jason were hosting their big day at Villa Marie in Maryville, Illinois. Villa Marie is one of our favorite wineries in the area and it's the perfect location for an outdoor ceremony.

Jason started the day with golfing a few miles down the road, while Caitlin did a little bridal prep in the hotel. After they were both dressed and ready, they had their first look in the vineyards. Not only is a winery perfect for an outdoor ceremony, but the vineyards make for an excellent first look!

If you're unfamiliar with the concept of a first look, let me explain. A first look is when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. This gives the couple an opportunity to calm their nerves before they say "I do", in addition to having a little extra time to spend together on their otherwise hectic day. We often encourage our couples to have a first look, especially when they think they might be anxious the day of the wedding. The saying everything else falls away when you see each other is often true, but it's nice to have that moment privately. It's hard to share your thoughts and feelings throughout the rush of the day, so recently couples have started scheduling time to do just that.

If you're considering a first look, watch Caitlin and Jason's same day edit below for inspiration.
