Shelby and Wes’ Marathon Texas Wedding

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, Texas Sign

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.

New Wave Photos

Here are a few photos from the session we had with New Wave Photography here in Corpus Christi.  We shoot a lot of wedding video and often we find ourselves out with Rob and Amanda.  They do a great job shooting photos and we decided to trade photos for video work.  They had their daughter, Parker Lilly, a few weeks after we had Grason.  Not only do we enjoy their company, we also enjoy Rob and Amanda’s work.  Below are a few baby portraits that New Wave Photo www.newwavephoto.com did for us.

Thanks again to Rob and Amanda at New Wave

Graduation Slideshows and Video

Here in Corpus Christi, it is getting closer and closer to graduation day. You have watched your child grow and it is time for them to walk across the stage. This time of year we get requests to make slide show presentation videos. We call them, “From diapers to diploma.” They showcase the life of your child. From those cute baby photos to those awkward times in middle school, to blossoming in to a young adult, a slide show video will allow you to watch your child grow before your eyes.

A Great Grand Opening

Friday was the grand opening for the new Big Box Pro Video Production studios. Along with Fonzie Munoz Photography we invited the public out to see the new site at 4209 S. Alameda. We had over 90 people sign in the guest book and many more coming and going during the night. As for a grand opening went we thought it was a great success. Those who RSVP’d were eligible to win door prizes. A few of the business from our new neighborhood were gracious enough to donate gifts for door prizes. So a big thanks goes to our new neighbors. In the short time we have been at our new location we have been very thankful to be away from the downtown Corpus Christi area. We fee a lot safer here.

We decides a while back that we would put on the grand opening on our own without the help of any chamber of commerce. If you are planning to do it yourself we definably recommend it. Sure they will get a lot of people out to your event, but are they your target market? When it comes down to it most chamber of commerce sponsored grand openings involve the same lushes coming out for a social event and free beer. I recommend that you build a client and vendor list and work from there. You can use a site like eVite and let them cover the electronic invitations. Once your event is over you have the opportunity to post pictures online for everyone to see. You can see ours here:

We truly appreciate all of our friends and family the helped to make this a success.

Oh yea, thanks a million to Moms, we could not do this without you.

Thanks

Derrick & Kendra Perrin

Long weekend ahead

Hi there,

Kendra and I will have a long weekend coming up.  Friday we video a wedding and reception.  Saturday is a Quinceanera, and Sunday we start work on our new location.  Before we know it it will be Monday.

More on the new location-

We will be moving from our 402 Peoples Street location to a new studio on the corner of Almeda and Everhart.  Along with the move we will be taking in Fonzie Munoz Photography with us.  The two companies will continue to operate as solo companies but will share 1,200 square feet of office space.  We are all very excited about the move.  We do have a tremendous amount of work to do at the new spot.  So far on the list will be removal of wallpaper, carpet, part of the t-grid ceiling.  Next, we will tackle putting up a new wall and finishing up painting.  Our anticipated date for working out of the new office is February 1, 2008.

The new location will provide a bigger, safer, and more pleasant location for our customers to visit.  Our new location will have a giant display room for customers to come in relax and view what Fonzie Munoz Photography, and Big Box Pro Audio Video have to offer.  We will continue to offer first class video productions for Corpus Christi and the surrounding South Texas area.  So if you are in need of wedding, quinceanera or special event videography services look to Big Box Pro.

Wish us luck

Derrick & Kendra Perrin
