For me there’s nothing like a video to really capture the essence of a wedding day. It’s one thing to have a beautiful photo, but a film captures everything, the smiles, the tears, and all the emotions in between. I absolutely love the idea of the couple creating video messages for each other to view on the morning of their wedding. I also love that Kristin and Ford got married in her parents backyard, such a sweet and personal ceremony. Here’s a little bit from Matt of MTVIDYO who shot their event:
It was an amazing day! It was in Stilwell Kansas in the parents beautiful backyard. Crazy things happened throughout the day. There’s a family joke that when you have a wedding outside they always get interrupted by ice cream trucks driving through the neighborhood. So they hired a fleet of ice cream trucks to interrupt the ceremony and deliver ice cream trucks to all the guests. At Starlight Theater while the father of the bride was giving his speech, the KU marching band bursts into the venue to surprise the bride and groom who both went to KU.
There’s something so magical about a wonderfully shot and edited wedding video, and I absolutely love this one by Nathan Eaton. It’s starts out quiet and sweet, and then it’s time to party. Plus that sparkler send off? Pretty awesome. Thanks for letting me share Nathan!
The Saturday Matinee isn’t just for videographers and filmmakers. When Heather of Hawes Photography sent me this sweet little stop-motion video they put together for Oliver and Amy’s day, I knew it had to be shared. Such a fun, and unique alternative to a film. Thanks so much for sending this my way Heather!
When I came across this “music video” featuring the song “Home” by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros I simply had to share. Not only is it adorable, and wonderfully edited, but it was also shot by a midwest/Kansas City vendor, One Tree Photography. Great work everyone involved, and what a great memory for Melinda and Nick to have forever!
Saturday Matinee is back people, so sorry for the haitus because it’s one of my very favorite things to post. That’s why I’m happy to be sharing a video from Nathan Eaton. I met Nathan through his wife Amanda Eaton while doing a fun little styled shoot with the lovely Ashley of Lemon and Lavendar. Wouldn’t you know it, yet another talented husband and wife team, and they’re right her in Kansas City. I love Amanda and Nathan not only because they create beautiful work, but also because they are so into the spirit of collaboration, which is always an amazing quality in a wedding vendor. Thanks to Nathan for sharing Colin and Scarlett’s video with us!
