From Sara, one of our summer interns:

Happy Saturday, y’all! This joyful wedding video from Twenty-One Films is chock-full of happiness and a whole bunch of love. Filled to the brim with elegant details and Southern charm, Julia + Derek’s outdoor wedding is truly ‘all smiles’ – the love and admiration that this couple shares – with each other as well as their family and friends – shines through every second of this five-minute film. With its tender moments (their pre-ceremony letter exchange gave me chills!) and abundance of laughter, I know this film’s resounding joy and radiating love will leave you beaming for the rest of the weekend!

From the bride:

Derek and I met at a wedding shower. To say that we were instantly and immediately attracted to one another would be an understatement. I believe in The Lord’s placement of people at certain times in our lives, and Derek and I meeting when we did was nothing short of His exceptional planning. Within no time, Derek and I both knew our fate was sealed and that we had found our soul mate in one another! After 16 months of dating, Derek got down on one knee and proposed at The Biltmore House with a gorgeous ring that belonged to his late grandmother. My heart melted and with much excitement and joy, we began to plan our next journey.

We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding venue and ended up choosing The Sutherland because of its rustic, Southern charm. We loved the beautiful eighteenth century home, the gardens and the large oaks and magnolias. I wanted a vintage, Southern feel for our big day, which included elements like my elegant lace gown, a variety of antique glass jars and bottles spread all over the venue, chicken and waffle appetizers, and Arnold Palmer Firefly sweet tea spiked cocktail beverages in mason jars with whimsical straws. Our first dance was to “Love Your Love the Most” by Eric Church and I threw on my cowboy boots during the reception. It was a magical, emotional and fun-filled day that neither of us will ever forget. Every time I looked around that evening, our guests were smiling, laughing, dancing and enjoying the celebration of the two of us uniting as one. What more could a couple ask for than to celebrate with all the ones we love?
