Southern Weddings

Y’all, I legitimately teared up reading all of the sweet comments on our wedding posts this week! (In case you missed them, they are here and here.) Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was thrilled to have the chance to share our photos with you, and now, our highlights film. As stunning as Tanja’s images are, there’s just something about seeing a wedding day in motion that is unlike anything else. Enter Inkspot Crow Films.

In this post, I mentioned that one piece of advice I had for those still planning was to “do what feels right for you.” There were many times throughout our engagement that people thought we were crazy for the decisions we made, and flying in a videographer from North Carolina was definitely on that list. However, I didn’t give naysayers even a second thought on this point, because I knew in my heart that there was no one else for us besides MacKenzie and Philip, and I was right, gosh darn it! Please enjoy…

For those of you still struggling over the videographer question, I’d encourage you to read this post I wrote about our decision-making process. You can also check out this post that I wrote with my videography thoughts after our wedding.

P.S. You can see all of our vendors listed in this post!

Inkspot Crow Films is a fabulous member of our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory!

    OHHH! Couple of things…Watching this makes me so grateful that I decided to go ahead with a video, even though it wasn’t initially in the budget! As gorgeous as your images are, there are so many sweet moments that the video brings out. Also, I chose a veil nearly identical to yours, horsehair border and all! After seeing how it moves in the breeze, I am even more in love with it! I’d never heard of Sperry tents before reading your blog, but I almost wish I needed a tent so I could have one – those flags are just so festive :)

    Gorgeous day, Emily…your details are charming and wonderful in every way.

    Emily THANK YOU for pushing wedding videography!!! Reading your thoughts, along with a few others by bloggers I love, really helped my fiance and I realize how NECESSARY videography is… and now, seeing your video come to life makes it all seem so RIGHT! We officially booked our videographer yesterday and I am SO grateful we made it work in our budget; It wasn’t initially in the budget but man I just knew it needed to be! Your still images are fantastic, but you’re right, the video is priceless…it’s a beautiful video girl. Thank you for sharing your thoughts so openly with bride-to-be’s! Your words of wisdom really do help!

      Kat, I am SO glad to hear it. It sounds like you are in exactly the same situation we were in, with videography not being in the original budget, but I promise, you will NOT regret it. With all the things we spend money on over a lifetime, I can think of few better ways to use it than to record those precious few hours of your wedding to look back on for years to come.

    […] Y’all, can you believe that John and I have been married for almost a year?? Sometimes it seems like just a few minutes ago that we were sharing our wedding photos and film. […]
