Blowing Rock Wedding // Lanier & Scott // North Carolina Videographer

Scott and Lanier first met on a blind date in September 2011. What was supposed to be a casual dinner in Annapolis, MD turned into a five hour long conversation that only ended when their server gently informed them that the restaurant had closed.

“We need you to leave,” she whispered.

Scott and Lanier looked up to find everyone had not only left, but the chairs and tables had been stacked up and pushed to the side. They had been so caught up in their discussion that they had not noticed a thing. Needless to say, it was a one-of-a-kind first date.

The distance between Towson, MD (Scott’s home) and Old Town, Alexandria (where Lanier lives) is exactly 60 miles. This would present the only hurdle in Scott’s decision to pursue his future wife. Luckily, as it turns out, the desire to spend time together outweighed the frustration of DC traffic.

For a year Scott intentionally pursued Lanier. From lacrosse games, to BBQ festivals, to quiet evenings with their two dogs, to road trips, to weekends in Chapel Hill (God’s country), to one spectacular vacation in Blowing Rock…the relationship progressed to the point that Scott knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Lanier was the woman with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life. In fact, when asked when he knew without question that he wanted to propose, Scott says the decision was made in Blowing Rock.

On November 9, (Lanier’s final day of work in the Capitol building) Lanier asked Scott to help her move the last of her things out of the office. Scott agreed, but he had other plans. In front of the Capitol dome, with tourists applauding, Scott dropped to one knee and asked Lanier to be his wife. He told her that he did not want her to leave the building without a promise for her future. Once Lanier recovered from the total shock, she, of course, said yes.

Ojai Valley Inn Wedding // Ally & Steven

So I kind of love this couple.  I’ve known Ally for years since she’s also in the “wedding biz”.  I knew the wedding would be amazing since we’ve filmed two of her brother’s weddings.  I also knew it would be amazing because of their story.  And I wasn’t disappointed. From the bride:

“We grew up a block away from each other and have run in the same circles for most of our lives. Steven was a Senior in High School when I was a Freshman, and my brother Scott was a Senior when Steven was a Freshman. Scott used to take Steven out and corrupt him. :) Scott and my other brother, Eric, even were the DJs for Steven’s Bar Mitzvah!  I also coached Steven’s little sister in soccer when I was in high school.  We have a TON of overlapping friends: Steven’s friend Adam (a groomsman) has a little sister named Stacy, who happens to be my best friend (and maid of honor). Steven & I also introduced our other best friends (Nicole–Bridesmaid and Steve–Best Man) and they got married a few years back. Our parents have similar friends, and our lives are pretty intertwined. Everyone at our wedding knows each other. We started dating when I was a Freshman in College and Steven was a Senior. We were both home over winter break and ran into each other while being young and irresponsible in Hollywood. Then, that summer, we officially started dating and were in a long-distance relationship the following year. Then, during my Junior year of college at Washington University in St. Louis, Steven enrolled at WashU for Law School. We endured the long-distance once again when I  moved to New York for Grad School. After I graduated, I moved home. We have been living together ever since. After Steven passed the bar, and completed a stint at CAA in the TV Talent Department, he also started working with me at Bob Gail. We have been dating since December 2004 and we have been in love for the entire time. We knew pretty early that this was a serious thing going in a specific direction, so our wedding has been a long time coming.”

Sevilla Wedding // Meagan & Conrad

I really don’t know where to start with this wedding because there is SO MUCH to share.  So here it goes.  Meagan is friends with several of our fabulous past couples and of course we were super stoked (yes I still use that word) to be invited to Spain to cover her and Conrad’s incredible destination wedding.  Actually it was more like an event.  Scratch that… eventS.  From the moment we arrived, there were so many things to film & timelapse.  Just around the city of Sevilla alone, we had one of the largest Cathedrals in Europe, a 14th century palace, and beautiful architecture everywhere.  It was ridiculous.  Sevilla is amazing and if you haven’t been there, book a ticket.  Like right now.

When you watch the SDE (yes we did a Same Day Edit… in Spain) you’ll notice that it starts with an event that took place in a bull fighting ring.  That would be their rehearsal dinner.  Yep.  The couple planned an opportunity for their (hilarious and fun) bridal party (well mainly the guys) to “fight” a baby bull.  These “matadors” (eh-hem) did a fabulous job and definitely entertained the crowd.  What followed next was a Gypsy wedding which (of course) started with the bride being kidnapped and the groom saving her.  duh.  The couple exchanged their personal vows here which was just awesome.

The next day was the BIG day.  The Catholic ceremony in a crazy old European churches with priceless artwork.  The wedding day style was BEYOND.  Check out all the bridal party dresses and of course the bride herself.  So gorgeous.  The groom in his blue tux wasn’t bad either!  We were able to take photos around Sevilla (&  Real Alcazar) and then it was off to the reception at an Olive Ranch (Orchard?? Farm?? ah!! Mill!!)  The details we included in this SDE is about 1/4 of how many their were.  It was STUN-NING.  Everything about this event was major eye candy.  The best part… the bride and groom infused THEIR personality into the entire event.  Of course there were traditions, but everything was spun with originality and their personality in mind… and of course with a twist of Gypsy/Moroccan/Spain.  LOVE.
