Houston, TX - It’s been two and half months since we began creating the wedding video for Sarah and Colby, and we’ve been chomping at the bit to weave it all together. One of the biggest priorities for every documentary videographer anywhere in the world is coming away from an event with content and finding moments to weave together a cohesive, emotive documentary. After leaving Sarah and Colby’s rehearsal dinner, Kourtney and I had no doubt that the Benjamin/Smith crowd was going to deliver the goods.
Heavens, we could’ve made an entire feature film out of the rehearsal dinner toasts alone – they were the perfect blend of compliments, zingers, and epic adventures recounted, and they set the stage for what we were to observe the following day.
Usually, when structuring together the framework of the story with toasts, we deliver the emotional pinnacle from either the groom or the father of the bride, but that was not the case in this instance. Who delivered the lines that best drew out the story and the emotion of the event? Watch and see!
The groomsmen, all active military, huddle around the groom before the ceremony.

The cake was natural with white buttercream and real roses with sprigs of berry.

With a military groom, a camo garter is perfect for the bride to wear on their big day. The dogtag reads, “sarah & colby” with their wedding date beneath.
When you’re done watching their wedding video, you’ll be certain to want more from the Benjamin family.We can take care of you in that regard–There’s another adventure to be had.
Sarah’s sister Liz will be getting hitched on the ranch March 24th. Mark your calendar for their wedding video preview which will land at 1 p.m., March 28th, 2012, and the feature film, which will premiere June 24th, 2012.
Thanks again, Sarah and Colby, for choosing Mason Jar Films as your wedding videography team!
