Corpus Christ Cathedral Wedding Video

The Wedding of Ashley and Nicholas

Nicholas and Ashley’s was a classic wedding with fairytale inspiration. Celebrated in the iconic Corpus Christi Cathedral, all of the details were wrought with romance.

Ashley’s dress was of a ball gown silhouette in white with a gorgeous and modest illusion neckline, statement sleeves, and a cathedral length train. She looked every bit porcelain doll-meets-fairytale princess from her bejeweled tiara and Tiffany pearl necklace to her gorgeous glass slipper-looking shoes.

Actually, the fact is this fairytale began years ago. Ashley and Nicholas met as Best Man and Maid of Honor in relatives’ wedding. They became friends, began dating, and on the anniversary of their first date Nicholas arranged for them to ride in a horse-drawn carriage.

Ashley’s perfect palate was rose, gold, and pink, with lace accents. The bridesmaids donned floor-length gold boatneck sheath gowns with ruching about the waist, a very flattering detail for every frame.

All carried rose bouquets–Ashley’s in white and the bridesmaids in red wrapped with gold. One of my favorite details, though, was the swoon-worthy white rose and baby’s breath crowns gracing the hair of the four lovely little flower girls.

We love the Corpus Christi Cathedral. The sheer size, brilliant stained glass, massive Roman columns, and green marble backdrop make a beautiful setting for weddings.

There is wonderful suspense created the moment the wedding party has all walked down the aisle and everyone stands, all eyes on the dramatic stained glass doors waiting for them to open and reveal that first glimpse of the beautiful bride and her loving father.

The Wedding Reception

The American Bank Center’s Water Garden Room requires little in the way of decoration due to the amazing glass wall overlooking the Harbor Bridge and the bay.

In perfect continuity of style and palate, tables were adorned in gold and lace tablecloths and luscious rose, hydrangea, and carnation centerpieces, and walls were uplit in magenta.

Ashley’s impeccable sense of style and elegance are matched only by her personality of grace and mercy. Everywhere she turned she was giving thanks left and right.

And then she did the loveliest thing of all during the bouquet toss. All the single ladies lined up. But surprisingly instead of tossing the bouquet, in an act of spontaneous cherity, Ashley turned around and handed it to a very special lady, a relative with down syndrome.

Following the send-off–which included the guests mass serenading the couple with an acapella version of New York New York–Ashley and Nicolas departed in a limo this time. And it was perfect.

And, Nicholas and Ashley lived happily ever after, of course.

Last Wedding of 2018

Thanks to all of our wonderful wedding couples of 2018.

The wedding of Mary and Jonathan, December 29, 2019, closes out our last wedding of the year. End of the year weddings has always been a favorite to shoot. If you ask me I think it has something to do with the stress of Christmas being past the guest.

OLPH Wedding Mass

The wedding mass at OLPH featured several family members. Father Frank provided one of the funniest homilies we have ever had the chance to video. He was entertaining, sincere, and quick. What more could a bride and groom ask for?

It has been over 10 years since Big Box Pro has shot in Our Lady of Perpetual Help. As a single floor building, it is not the best option for a wedding video, but it makes up for it in stained glass beauty.

To top off the end of the year I was able to work the final wedding of the year with my lovely wife, Kendra. Big Box Pro has always run its best when we work together. From the start of the day where she is running video in the brides camp, and I’m with the groom, all the way to the sendoff we work as a great team.

After shooting the Mass at OLPH we jumped over to The Dancing Elk Ranch to videotape the reception.

Kendra Hill Perrin

We hope 2018 has been your best year yet. If you are one of the luck newly engage couples please give us a call and ask how wedding video can be the perfect way to document your wedding.

Beautiful wedding day with no rain

The fix was in.

During the bouquet toss at Kara Beth & Emilio Flores’ wedding, we knew wedding bells were in the near future for maid of honor, Dillon Mullenix. You can see how bad the fix was in the first minute of this video. Shortly after shooting this clip we met Mr. Aaron Duval, the soon to be fiancé of Dillon.

We were really excited when we got a message from Dillon. She was happily engaged to Aaron and ready to book us for her wedding day.

I have know Dillion since she was born. I had the opportunity to be in her mom’s 2nd-grade classroom at Tuloso-Midway Elementary.

So back to the beautiful wedding day. Well, I should really start the day before. It all started with a week full of rain. There was even a bit of rain on the rehearsal night. The morning of the wedding day the heavens cleared the sky and shined down glorious beams of light. Down came the sun and dried up all the rain. You can hear Dillon freak out a bit when the word rain is mentioned during preparations.

This is the first wedding reception we have seen in a teepee. We can’t tell you how much these rocked. I believe they were brought in from Indie House, Austin, TX.  If you are looking to add a bohemian  feel to your wedding reception, you should look at Indie House.

How will I receive my wedding video?

Over the last 15 years we have delivered wedding video via digital downloads, bluray, DVD, and don’t laugh…. VHS. Yep in the last couple of years a couple wanted to send their video to grandma and grandma only had a VHS tape player. These days DVDs are the most popular way for a bride and groom to save their wedding day. Downloadable links will nudge out DVD this year.

Will you work well with my Photographer?

Yes, we are there to document your day and make you happy. We work hand in hand with your chosen photographer to make sure your day moves smooth and is documented properly. Many of the lighting settings that help with videography are helpful when it comes to photography.

Can I get the raw video files from my wedding day?

Yes. 99% of our clients would like us to handle the shooting and the editing. Here is a sample of the 1%.

This is a best fit if you love our style and want to edit like we do.
We do give a small discount for a shooting and delivering wedding project.

What is videography?

Videography – vid·e·og·ra·phy

This is a term used to describe someone who shots video. Take an example of a photographer and photography. Videography is the recording of video done by a videographer.

Many wedding videographers try to call themselves wedding film makers. We sort of like that. We don’t actually shoot on film so we stick with the common term videographer.

Where did you get your training?

Derrick here – I was the nerdy kid who gravitated to new technology. At any family function you would see me  with a camera in my hand. I got my first one in 4th grade. Yep it was a PXL-2000. Somehow they found a way to shoot video onto a cassette tape. I was hooked. After high-school I spent a lot of time in the radio and tv department at Del Mar College before transferring over to Texas A&M Kingsville.
We stay current by attending Wedding Market Expos and film making classes. Steady work in the wedding industry has help us hone the skills of telling your story.

Will you be at my wedding?

Kendra or Derrick Perrin will be at your wedding. Most of the time both of us will be there. You see wedding video is very personal and you should have a good relationship with your videographer and photographer. They will see you at your best and worst. Its their job to only capture and share the best.

If you are busy on my day who can I hire?

There are a few wedding videographers who work full time in Corpus Christi. There are a lot more who shoot wedding films as a side job or hobby. If you contact us we would be happy to share a reputable vendor for your wedding day. This is not only limited to videograpy. You can  contact us about any wedding vendor you have questions about.

Christmas Video Card – The Perrin’s

Perrin Family Christmas Video - Big Box Pro

A few years backs we had our first child and wanted to make a family video in place of sending out a snail mail card. We had a success and went on to produce another. We found it hard to keep up and failed to complete one for a few years.

Here is the 2009 Edition::

So now in 2015 we had a plan ready to shoot during the Thanksgiving break. We had hurdles and ear aches and work. So the Eve of Christmas Eve everything aligned and we started to shoot.

The Shoot

8pm – We setup the opening scene first. Family band super fun time.
Next is mad dad. That would be me pissed and not wanting carolers at my door. We shot two shots and combined them in the edit. We jumped to the outdoor “wrap dad in lights” shoot. We did that on Caramel Parkway. On the way from that shoot we shot the “Dad trapped in Car” shot.

11:15pm – Once we arrived at Mr. Bills Christmas Wonderland. We covered baby Jesus and then moved on to glitter beard.
Derrick Perrin in Glitter Beard
Mr. Tripod helped us shoot family shots and then we were off to the house. Once back home we started the real fun… slow motion. In November we started up Big Box Pro Motion. This is our slow motion photo booth. We used it to create a sub story in parallel with making dad turn happy.

So at 2am we put the kids down and started the edit. In the next 4 hours we had the edit you see today.

This project was such a blast. I want to thank my family for putting up with the mess of the shoot. The kids seem to love it. I hope to have one ready for 2016.
