Nora & Pat // Wedding Sneak Peek Teaser Trailer

Where do I start with this lovely couple?! πŸ’• Nora and Pat are some of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure of meeting! They're so intelligent and kind as well. It's actually funny the way we got to know each other. One of my best friends (she was also my maid of honor) went to high school with Nora and introduced us through Facebook. I worked with Nora and Pat on their Love Story Engagement Film that we filmed over the summer at Maclay Gardens in Tallahasssee. When I heard about how they met and got engaged, I could just tell these two truly loved each other. The way the speak about the other is so encouraging and loving and it is so amazing to see! πŸ’– After hearing how much they loved their engagement film, we discussed potentially shooting their wedding as well. I am so happy and honored that Nora and Pat chose to work with us as their wedding videographer! I had such a blast continuing to get to know them through Facebook and coffee meetings. I am truly thankful to have met such an amazing couple as the Baileys!

Here's a little background on how the two met (although you can also see it in their engagement and wedding films). πŸ˜‰ Nora and Pat met at Stetson University when she was a freshman and he was a sophomore. They both were in the same Gender & Society course and she noticed him (and his deep voice) the first day of class. After just small interactions, they again ended up in the same class, this time in Sociological Theories. One day, while their professor was assigning a group project, Pat was absent. The professor asked everyone who would be willing to take Pat in their group and inform him of the assignment. Nora's hand shot up in the air to volunteer... partly because of their work ethic and also partly because she thought he was cute. πŸ™‹πŸ˜‰ A little later in the year, Pat invited Nora to a get together and they had a wonderful time that night with lots of laughter and white wine. There was an instant connection between the two of them! Awww isn't that so sweet! Seriously, I love their love story! After a few more meetings, small dates, and Valentines Day gift giving, they began to officially date: February 17th, 2013. 

So lots of fast forwarding and now time for the engagement! Woohoo! πŸ’ Since their graduation from Stetson in May of 2014, Nora and Pat had gone back to campus for visits pretty frequently. So when Pat suggested that they go again on the day of the proposal (little did she know), Nora didn't think anything of it. At this point in their relationship, they had discussed getting engaged before and she knew that's where they were eventually headed. She didn't know when it was going to happen, though. Early in the morning as they were getting ready to leave, Pat was kind of rushing Nora along which she thought was strange. But she didn't think too much of it. Continuing on their drive and arrival, he acted a little odd, seemed like he was on a schedule, asked to hold her hand, and started talking all lovey dovey. Again, she didn't think about it too much until he got down on one knee with this gorgeous ring. Pat started to tear up, dropped on one knee, and asked her to marry him. Nora of course said yes and then started screaming around to all the people walking by: "WE JUST GOT ENGAGED! JUST RIGHT NOW! LOOK AT MY HAND!" I absolutely loved hearing about their sweet proposal! These two are great! πŸ’– 

Fast forwarding again to the day of their wedding. Nora and Pat had a beautiful December wedding at the gorgeous SouthWood House in Tallahassee, Florida. After getting the ladies hair and makeup done at Haute Headz, I met the wedding party at SouthWood to continue the day and start the getting ready filming. Documenting the getting ready and gift/letter exchanges are some of my favorite points of the day aside from the vows and formal dances. I love those little, sweet moments. The in between moments. They are just so genuine and that is something I adore. After the bride and groom finished getting ready, it was ceremony time! The officiant was actually one of Nora and Pat's good friends, Alex. I think it is so amazing when couples have an officiant who is close to them. It adds such a layer of uniqueness and person-ability to the ceremony. During the filming and editing of the ceremony, particularly their vows, I totally teared up...on numerous occasions haha. πŸ˜­ Nora and Pat's vows are so thoughtful, authentic, and beautiful! Personalized vows are incredible! It warms my heart so much when two people come together and commit themselves to the other for life. And let me tell you, these two are so in love. They support each other so much and are such a perfect match. Thank you, Nora and Pat, for having us be a part of capturing your big day! My husband, Jacob, and I are wishing you two all the very best! πŸ’• {Be sure to check out their wedding films and some still frame grabs below.}
