I've been awaiting Evelyn and Bryan's Dallas wedding for quite some time now.
I first talked to Evelyn's mother, Natalie, in regards to shooting her daughter Ellen's wedding video in San Antonio - you should remember Ellen and Clay - fantastic couple with a wonderful story. I was thoroughly looking forward to meeting them this past May.
As fate would have it, one of my best friends was to be married the same day, and he requested that I be in his wedding party...in Lawrence, Kansas! You don't have to be from out of town to know that that's more than a hop, skip, and a jump from San Antonio. Fortunately, the Hoelscher's gave their blessing for me to be a few state's away while my trusty team (Kourtney and Chance) documented the event (and what a fantastic job they did!!!).
After editing Ellen and Clay's intro and watching Kourtney put together a fantastic wedding video documentary, I really fell in love with the Hoelscher's and Kimbrough's all the more, and I had never had a chance to meet them at their first Texas wedding.
Fortunately, Evelyn was getting married a mere 6 months later in Dallas, and the family wanted us there to be the official wedding videographer for this one, too. So, after nearly two years of phone calls and e-mails, I was finally able to meet the Hoelscher clan...and they didn't disappoint!
I knew that the Hoelschers and their friends love to dance, and the Signed, Sealed, and Delivered band gave them plenty of tunes to do just that - the good folks at Arlington Hall at Lee Park hated to kick everyone out at 1 a.m. because they were having too much of a good time.
We had to escape without being able to say goodbye with a long drive ahead of us, making it back to Waco about 3:30 a.m., eyelids heavy, hearts full. This will be a wedding film for the ages.
Evelyn and Bryan, thanks for letting us peek into your lives for a day so that you can remember it for a lifetime!
