Filming the wedding of friends is such an honor and VERY exciting for me! In this case I’ve known Beth and Drew and their familes for years…since they were little kids actually. So as if this wedding wasn’t special enough…for me it was emotional. We filmed their rehearsal dinner on Friday night at Sobys on the Side and what a beautiful place that is for an event! We used some of the words from those talks in this highlight and will use even more in their cinematic short form edit which will be coming soon! It was also exciting for me to create a movie of Beth and Drew talking about their dating days, their very fun proposal, the wedding plans and what they were looking forward to in the future. We showed it at the rehearsal dinner.
Katie and Bradley were married in Greenville SC on September 28th. Since they both lived in Columbia, SC, I hadn’t met them until the wedding day. By the time they left their incredible reception, I felt like they were long time friends. They just make you happy to be around them. And while I was editing their highlight, I kept noticing how much love and excitement they had for each other. You’ll see what I mean! Their ceremony was at the beautiful Trinity Lutheran Church in downtown Greenville and the reception was at the Wyche Pavillion located on the Reedy River. It is truly a stunning setting for a wedding reception celebration. Music is very important to Bradley and he wanted a good band….so he got one! I’ve have the pleasure of working with Monique and the Mo’Sol Band several times at various east coast locations. It’s a blast every time!
It has been one heck of a wedding season and it’s just about over…all but the editing! Christy and I started the season way back on a cold spring day in Montgomery Alabama. The wedding we were about to film would be one we wouldn’t soon forget. It was very special. It was so special that this morning I decided to share their full short form cinematic movie here. The toasts at the rehearsal dinner gave us some beautiful words to help us tell their story. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Every now and then you get a surprise at a wedding that you just weren’t prepared for! This past weekend was one of those moments for me. This is a reception band like I’ve never seen. The Right On Band is truly spectacular! They performed at the 2009 presidential inauguration and Saturday night they performed for Allie and Edward at my all time favorite wedding venue in the southeast: The Old Edwards Inn in Highlands NC.
I spent several years traveling full time with a rock/showband myself many years ago and I even dressed a bit like these guys. They are a 70’s show band and they do it right. They aren’t just great singers and musicians…they put on one heck of a show.
This 6 minute clip is the start of the band’s show. Enjoy!
What a treat I got while filming the rehearsal dinner for Mary and Russ in Columbia SC. Philip Myers is truly one of the greatest vocalists I’ve heard. He happens to be a good friend of the Mungo family and performed for the rehearsal dinner. I wanted to share a few of his songs because I know how much it means to Russ and Mary and their families. What an honor to be part of that great celebration! Much more to come! Stay tuned!
