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.
When Kara Beth and Emilio asked us to be a part of their wedding day we gladly said “YES” These two came from fun families and were so nice to work for. This was our first video shoot in the San Patricio County Fairgrounds. The facility there makes a great wedding reception location.
My favorite special touch was the customized Converse shoe that were shown off right before the tossing of the bouquet and garter. If you watch the clip you can also see that the toss of the bouquet was clearly rigged in the favor of the bridesmaid.
Thanks for taking a look at a wedding film produced by Big Box Pro.
We operate out of Corpus Christi and would love to talk with you about shooting a video at your wedding event.
This live video from the Ritz Theater in Corpus Christi was recorded on January 16, 2014. This was the first recording session for The Revival Sessions produced by CC Patch.

Party Blast is a website that helps brides ding wedding vendors. We have just updated our listing on the site to include new information and photos. (so we only have one photo spot right now but we hope they are changing that soon)
So please go over to Party Blast and take a look. If you do a search for wedding video folks in south Texas we should come up in Corpus Christi / Nueces country and also in Bexar and Tom Green. We are listed in those two additional counties because that is where we shot when we are on the road. We tell people we love to shoot in the San’s: San Angelo and San Antonio.
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,
