Jess and Mike – thank you! It has been such a great experience to create your wedding film! When we first started talking about doing this I knew it would be a little different since you weren’t planning a traditional wedding. Thinking outside-the-box can be both challenging and exciting…and it was both! Your story is special. Through the words spoken at your wedding dinner and you both sharing heartfelt feelings during your love story filming…not to mention your Isle of Palms poolside ceremony offiated by a Mike’s childhood friend…we had the pieces to tell a very special story. Jess and Mike, your reactions during the first look were ones that I will always bring tears to my eyes. I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to capture it for you. I hope it is special to you both for many years!
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!
