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.

This film was shot in Cristoval, Texas at the Chapel in the Vineyard.

The bride and groom have know each other forever. We were able to interview Linsdey and Curtis at their wedding reception. Clips from this interview can be seen in this clip and were used to create their love story film. This is a clip that tells the story of how they met and fell in love. Thanks for watching and we hope you enjoined the show.

Corpus Christi First Baptist Wedding

The wedding of Courtney & Luke Kelly was held at First Baptist Church in Corpus Christi Texas.
Big Box Pro Wedding Video was happy to work along side Raymond Gray from Gray Photography. He and his photo crew are always amazingly creative and camera pros.

There are two areas a bride and groom can get married at 1st Baptist. There is the side chapel and there is the main sanctuary. Courtney’s brother was married in the sanctuary three years ago and she thought it would be the perfect spot to wed her husband Luke.

Ortiz Center Reception

The party after the wedding was held at the Solomon P. Ortiz Center. Razzle Dazzle did an amazing job of bringing the brides ideas to life. Please watch the wedding highlight film and let us know what you think.

Shea & Cheryl Bailey speak at Wedding Market Expo - Austin 2014

A day at Wedding Market Expo is packed with animated speakers with knowledge to share. One of my favorites is the husband and wife team of Cheryl Bailey and her husband Shea Bailey. Last year was the first time I saw their presentation. Their company Wedding Industry Rescue is well versed in how to make your site rank better. They are just one example of the many great speakers at WME.

We found out there is a new bride guide online. Tammy Elliot from Perfect Wedding Guide presented and we enjoyed what she had to say. In her presentation she taught wedding business owners how to take care of the back end. It was great to hear someone passionate about a part of the business that is usually very boring. Thanks Tammy for all the information. We hopped over to Perfect Wedding Guide and were happy to add our business profile to your bridal service site.

Here is a sound sample from the presentation by Perfect Wedding Guide’s Tammy Elliot.

Bridal Marketing Tip

Truth, many new brides cant read cursive. How did this happen? Somewhere after graduating high-school and now our education system has yanked the art of cursive writing. So your millennial bride spent time learning power-point and missed scrip writing and as a result you can no longer expect your target audience can read your pretty marketing material.

Alan Berg was the main reason I went to the first WME in Austin, 2013. I thank the ladies for putting on such a first class event and for making the Texas wedding market strong.

As a result of my attendance I got this cool little certificate.

Love Story

Your Story, The Story of Love?

A Love Story gives you the opportunity to tell the story of how you met and fell in love. Sometimes the bride’s story and the groom’s story don’t add up, and that is what makes the love story video a lot of fun. On top of all that, the story of how you met is something that will be preserved and cherished in the coming years.

Editors Note:

Each Love Story is a custom production and no two are ever the same.

Derrick Perrin with Sony FS100There are several ways to produce a love story video. Our first way is to have a sit down interview where we ask questions about your relationship. If you have questions you would like your fiance to answer then just hand them over before the camera starts recording. These type of video productions bring us the most amount of fun.

Depending on the weather we can go out and shoot at your favorite park or hang out location.
