Dallas Wedding Video at Park Cities Baptist + Union Station: Laura and John

Laura called me last December and we played phone tag for a while.  When I finally caught her at work, we chatted for a bit, and she expressed that Mason Jar Films had to shoot her wedding video because she had been a fan from her earliest college days. After we hung up, I thought, "wow, this woman is an extremely NICE person, like, beyond NICE."  I could practically feel her welcoming eye contact through the iPhone. :->

We had produced the wedding videos for many of Laura's friends, including Wynne & Stephen and Kate & Bill, so we were not surprised in the least to be surrounded at the rehearsal dinner by a host of warm, loving, and loyal friends that toasted the couple's many virtues. Laura and John have truly invested themselves in dozens of people throughout their lives - they are inspiring examples of how to love your brother and sister intensely.

The most intense love, though, was clearly between John and Laura. John proclaimed his devotion to Laura in such a way at the rehearsal dinner that almost made a wedding ceremony unnecessary! After we left DUO, I couldn't believe that more awaited us the next day! The next day brought treat after treat, from small moments between the couple and their parents, to Laura's epic entrance with a live cover of a Sigur Ros tune, to the gospel choir singing them back the other way. When we are commissioned to produce a wedding video, these are the instances of which we dream!

Yes.  That is a two-story chalkboard in the background.  DIY has never looked so chic & fabulous!

Hands down, this is the most fun "Father of the Bride" throne we've ever seen at a wedding--what a great idea!

Marie Gabrielle | Dallas Wedding - Alexis & Andy

2008 alexis & andy wedding pic marie gabrielle stoneleigh

Another Saturday, another fun loving couple.  It's a tough life.  I know.

Last Saturday, my couple decided to make it official at Marie Gabrielle on a picture picture afternoon.

Making those perfect pictures was Andrea Polito, with whom I've had the opportunity on a number of occasions in the past year.  Andrea did double duty as a bridesmaid, too!

When I found out that the couple had chosen one of my favorite wedding tunes for their first dance ("Arms of a Woman" by Amos Lee), I knew that we had quite the soul connection.

Skyrocket from Austin put on a show (as they always do).  I cannot say enough about Skyrocket, having witnessed their ability to get the party started on numerous occasions.  They are they only band that I've seen that covers all your favorite Solid Gold Hits, including Hot Child in the City by Nick Glider.  That's right, folks.

Thanks for inviting us to the party!
