We are so thrilled to share this wedding film with you. Their wedding was both a touching experience and imaginatively designed to create a delightful soiree for all of their friends and family. Not only do Erin and Andrew have a delightful sense of style that is both tailored, preppy, and bohemian all at once, but their joyful spirits are extremely infectious. In fact, while I was editing their film, my face was sore from smiling so much. And now that we're sharing the film, your face can be sore because of extended amounts of smiling, too!
Erin's dress was stunning--mermaid cut with a fluted skirt that extravagantly trained behind her. Not only did she wear a dress made of the most luxuriously draped gauzy tulle that we've ever seen, but her accessories were stunning-- something bleu shoes accented by white feathers.
The hill-top Christian ceremony was breath-taking, and Erin descended through a stair-case linked arms with her father. The modern, romantic music selections for the wedding ceremony included songs by The Arcade Fire. Listening to the songs they chose for their wedding day heavily influenced the music we selected for the film--the opening song is a lilting, hopeful song by siren singer-songwriter Holly Maher filled with soaring tones of violin and cello with lilting melody created by a light piano.
Erin's mother is doting, and her father is hilarious--which created that same combination in her siblings, who totally ham it up with Erin throughout the photography sessions.
Matchmaker Band kept the party hopping through the night! They have several 'front singers' to cover a variety of musical styles, and their growling vocals and energy is always top notch! Watch it here.
As we mentioned in a previous post, we were thrilled to work alongside noted fashion photographer Christianne Taylor at this wedding. She's based in California, but she often returns to her native state of Texas to document special projects. We've worked with her before at Sarah & Colby's ranch estate wedding, and it was delightful to work with her again.
In our first post about Erin & Andrew's wedding, we told you the story of how they almost didn't have a wedding cake, which is a precious story, but now, I want to tell you about what Andrew's dad said.
As guests sipped from glass soda bottles with these adorable DIY soda straw flags, Andrew's dad gave a heartfelt speech thanking the people who brought Erin and Andrew together, and how he felt that Erin and Andrew were like arrows shooting through the sky. Psalm 127 speaks of how children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands, and how they will return to bless their parents.
"we also feel excitement at watching these two young people start their flight together," he said.
We could tell that Andrew's dad was already so thankful for the blessing of his son, and of his new daughter-in-law. Congratulations to you both, Erin and Andrew. We hope you are always able to reflect back to the joy of this celebration and how it was just the beginning of new laughter and adventures in your life.
