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.
Each Love Story is a custom production and no two are ever the same.
There 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.
It might be fall up in New England, but its still summer time in South Texas. We appreciate the change in color of the decorations and the fact we have temperatures as low as the 90s.
This past weekend we shot video at Most Precious Blood Catholic Church and then went to the reception at the Aransas Pass Civic Center. While driving from the church in Corpus Christi to the reception site, the couple had to endure life without air conditioning in the party bus.
The grooms family is from Nebraska and they will be having a reception up there as soon as they get back from their tropical honeymoon. When the couple is enjoying the island life we will be preparing a video to be shown at the couples Nebraska wedding reception.
We hope they have a fun and save honeymoon. We will post their wedding highlight here once we are done.
Don’t be they guy who comes up and tells me “The only regret I have on my wedding day was not having someone to videotape it.” Hire a professional videographer or find a diy workaround. Your wedding day is to precious to loose.
When Shelby and Wes asked us to shoot their wedding in Marathon, Texas, I was super excited. Because I love West Texas.
Okay, Derrick loves West Texas. And I love Derrick. ‘Cause there’s the stuff you love, and there’s the stuff he loves. And then there’s the stuff you really kinda do love because he loves it. Marriage is like that. But I digress.
Marathon, at an elevation of 4040 feet and located in the Chihuahuan Desert, has a humidity level of like 0% I’m guessing. And though there is a certain kind of beauty to dirt and rocks, and rocks and dirt (and maybe some cactus), Gage Gardens is such a welcoming oasis out there.
Shelby & Wes’ perfect palette appropriately reflected the colors of the desert. Shelby’s dress was traditional white. The gents donned off-white shirts and khakis, and the bridesmaids were so lovely in strapless tea-length light gold frocks with brown sashes. Florals (none of which the bride’s bouquet contained) were yellow roses and carnations. What’s left? Oh, yes. Green. Green succulents. (Did I mention I love succulents?)
Shelby’s bouquet was comprised entirely of greenery, much of it succulents. Their other (and most adorable) use? The guest favors–tiny potted succulents. They looked so precious in their terracotta pots all sprayed in metallic gold. I seriously wanted one. Okay, I wanted all of them.
Speaking of gifts, how cool is this? Wes made knives from railroad spikes for each of his groomsmen. The guys were, of course, pretty stoked.
Other really awesome not-to-be-overlooked elements include:
Boots. Worn by everyone, of course. We’re in West Texas!
Poloroid sign-in book (with location-appropriate props),
The Best Man’s toast: A song to his baby brother & new sister-in-law (watch it here),
And the ever-popular sparkler send-off.
So here is Shelby & Wes’ Marathon, Texas Wedding Highlight. If you enjoy watching it half as much as we enjoyed making it, then we did pretty good.

Shelby and Wes wanted their closest friends and family to enjoy West Texas and the Big Bend. These two had a beautiful wedding day.

On July 23, 2011 Kendra and I shot this amazing wedding at the Cactus Hotel in San Angelo.
Jamie and David were such a perfect couple to work with. Their wedding day flew by and we were thankful we were there to capture it.
To find out more on the historic Cactus Hotel check out the Cactus Website. Here is an excerpt from their page:
The Hotel Cactus (originally the Hilton Hotel) of 1928 is one of the best preserved of the original Hilton hotels. Since then its fourteen-story buff-brick tower, capped with a red mission-tile roof, has served as a familiar regional landmark. For almost six decades its interior spaces have been hubs of activity for generations of west Texans. The tastefully blended colors and details of the building reflect Architect Anton Korn’s sensitivity to both formal classical references and Southwestern regional influences.
Now if I could only get this highlight song out of my head,
Chaliis and Jason had an enchanting wedding at Nolte Farms in Seguin, Texas. Chaliis was very involved in every detail of her wedding planning. She designed her dress, bouquet, the bird nest that held the rings, and countless other elements which all came together beautifully. We are pleased and honored to be able to preserve the memories of this most important day for this great couple.
I just completed the wedding trailer for Brenda & Robert Ramirez. The wedding was held on April 5, 2008 at St Anthony’s in Robstown, Texas. The reception was at the Bayfront Inn located in downtown Corpus Christi. This couple was very easy to work with and their video shows. You can view their wedding day trailer here:
