Southern Weddings

Category: Wedding Films

Everyone has their own favorite part of a wedding–maybe the bride’s walk down the aisle, the exchange of vows, the first dance, or the sparkler exit. Personally, I don’t have a favorite (I love them all!!), but when it comes to wedding films, my favorite thing about them is when they make me feel like I’m there, witnessing all those moments right alongside a couple’s beloved guests. That’s why I loved Michelle and Ryan’s highlights film by Nowsay Films so very much–y’all please join me virtually at Boone Hall Plantation to enjoy this darling couple’s special day!

From the bride:

We were married on a Southern plantation in Charleston, South Carolina, and included cotton boutonnieres, dried palmettos roses, Southern cocktails and beers from local breweries, pimento cheese sliders, and shrimp and grits. Our most memorable moments were when the sun magically came out in time for our outdoor ceremony, and walking back up the aisle after being announced husband and wife and seeing that we were surrounded by all of the people we love.

Oh, friends–get your tissues out for this one! When a bride and groom choose a family farm for their wedding, you just know that their day is going to be filled with warmth, hospitality, and a whole lotta love. In Nancy and Patrick’s case, their celebration was all the more meaningful because the farm was also where her parents had tied the knot 29 years earlier! From her sister’s touching toast to her sweet daddy’s words of wisdom, it’s easy to see that this day meant so much to every single member of their families. We’re so grateful that our Blue Ribbon Vendor Life Stage Films shared all of this early autumn sweetness with us!

From the bride:

Our favorite detail of the wedding was our venue. We were married on my family’s farm, exactly where my parents exchanged vows in 1985. Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed about getting married at the same place as my parents. I was able to walk out the same door that my mom and her father walked out of to the man of my dreams, just as my mom had walked out to my dad. It was so very special to live out my childhood dream–and the day was so much better than what I ever imagined!

During the reception/dance party, I remember looking around and saying to Patrick that the day could not have been more perfect. It was overwhelming to see our favorite people in the world in one place in one time to celebrate us. In that moment, I was so filled with love!

One of the most magical things about weddings is the way they bring people together who would have never been in the same room otherwise. Your high school friends sit next to your coworkers at your ceremony. Your cousins cut a rug with your sorority sisters. Most importantly, your family and your beau’s family celebrate together under one roof. Sarah and Giancarlo’s wedding brought together her sweet, undeniably Southern community and his family and friends all the way from Peru, and despite the language barriers and cultural differences, the love and joy over this darling couple’s union is palpable! We’re so glad our Blue Ribbon Vendor Twenty-One Films shared their highlights film with us–don’t miss it below!

From the bride:

Giancarlo and I met through one of my neighbors. Since Giancarlo and I work in similar fields and he had just finished up his MBA, my neighbor put us in touch for networking purposes. A few weeks later, he and I met up at a local coffee shop and sat there for three hours, hardly discussing business :) The following summer, Giancarlo had to move back to Peru. I traveled down to see him a few months after he moved, and he proposed on the beach in Paracas. The next year was spent with him in Peru and me in the States. After fifteen months of living in different counties, he finally came back to the US and we were married on October 4, 2014.

By far, the most memorable moment of our wedding day was when Giancarlo and I said our vows in both English and Spanish. My parents don’t speak Spanish and Giancarlo’s parents don’t speak English. It was important to us to incorporate both languages and customs equally throughout the ceremony. Saying my vows to this amazing man in both my native language and his native language was something that I will never forget, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
