Fran and David, it’s hard for me to tell you how much I have loved getting to know you both. And then to get the honor of filming your incredible wedding at Brookgreen Gardens…it’s truly something I will remember forever! My challenge in creating your wedding films has been to capture and tell the stories of your authentic passion for each other, your families and your ambitions. I have felt a strong energy for telling your story from the first email I received from you Fran and I can’t wait to get to that feature film soon!
I have had the huge privilege of filming two other Haas weddings and now to see the joining together with the Jolson family is very special. And fortunately we found out that “Mike the Dancer” (formally known as “Mike the Runner”) is NOT too old to still wow the crowd!! Watch for some incredible dance moves! Mike, please stay in shape, they still need one more performance from you!
I can’t imagine a more beautiful setting for a ceremony than the Live Oak Alee at Brookgreen Gardens in Murrell’s Inlet SC. And what a special team we had: Craig and Lindsey of Sposa Bella Photography, Kelly and Kristen and their crew from Walton Event Design, David Hackney and his incredibly helpful group at Brookgreen Gardens and then the awesome band: I Love This Band! I wish we could do it all over again!
Stay tuned! More to come on this one!
Ashley and Andrew were married in downtown Greenville on a beautiful December day with an incredible reception at the Huguenot Loft on the Reedy River. There were tears and emotions at the ceremony and then one heck of a party followed! Those Marines were fun!
Ashley and Andrew, wow what a celebration! It was an honor to be there and to create this wedding film for you. I hope you show this to your children someday so they can understand the love that brought you together.
Andrea and Kyle had a beautiful intimate wedding at one of the most gorgeous wedding venues anywhere. They were surrounded by their closest family and friends and it was just a warm cozy feeling that was amazing!
The reception was also a ton of fun with great music provided by Burke and Clifton of Melonbelly! Great working with you guys!
This entire weekend was incredible…and one I won’t soon forget! Everything was off the chart…from the emotion, elegance and beauty… to the closeness of family… to just plain fun!
Working with Olivia Griffin is always a creative playground! And Meg and Taylor always plan a masterpiece! And of course filming at Furman and the Westin Poinsett Hotel in downtown Greenville SC on a beautiful October weekend is just awesome.
But more than anything, Alexis and Robert are two very special people. I had the honor of filming their proposal (hiding outside the Wyche Pavilion) and then their rehearsal dinner and wedding. It’s hard to not be happy when you are around them. I think this will make you smile and maybe cry a little too.
Kaitlyn and Jordan, I don’t know how to thank you! Kaitlyn, when we met the first time I knew this film was going to be a true passion for me. Then when I got to know Jordan during the love story filming I realized just how much fun we’d have. From the rehearsal dinner…to the wedding day…and then to the post wedding filming at Skytop Apple Orchard…it was all such a blast and such a wonderful experience. This is why I love my “job”! Thank you for that gift.
Telling this story took some extra time due to the amount of powerful content we had filmed along the way. And that’s the best problem to have! I truly hope this film captures who you are right now…because that’s important! As you’re lives move forward, my hope is that you can always revisit this precious snapshot of one of the most important crossroads you’ll ever encounter. It was such an honor for me to be part of it.
And working with the incredible team of Jamie Player, Christine Faust, Jana Candler and The Mighty Kicks at the Huguenot Loft…Awesome!! Thanks guys!
