Erica & Jeff // Wedding Sneak Peek Trailer
Erica and Jeff became Mr. & Mrs. Smith when they were married on April 21st, 2017! A big congratulations to this warm, joyful, and caring pair! 💕 It was such a pleasure getting to know them, grabbing coffee with them before the big day, and of course filming and editing special wedding films for Jeff and Erica! Let's rewind though and get into how these two met. These two were long distance for a bit, but they always found a way to meet with each other.
They couldn't get each other out of their heads and always loved being together. 😍 *cue the wedding bells*
From the bride:
"We met through a mutual friend who thought we'd be perfect together and arranged for us to meet even though we were long distance. We started dating long distance (5 hours apart) and Jeff eventually moved to Atlanta where Erica lived."
They dated for a bit and then not too soon after, felt that this was definitely something special. Hence, Jeff's upcoming proposal.
From the bride:
"He asked all my family and friends to record a short video saying how much they loved us which he combined into a longer video. He took me to Centennial Olympic Park near where we had our first date, showed me the video and then proposed! He had a photographer nearby taking pictures of the whole thing."
Isn't that so cute and thoughtful?! 😍 It's incresdibly sweet of him to go through all that planning and preparation to ask Erica to be his future wife.
I love getting to know the couple personally, hearing about their relationship, and how he popped the question. I love creating personal connections with my couples because I truly love fostering good relationships. Also it's amazing to film and edit wedding films for couples that now feel like friends. That is my goal! To create genuine connections with my clients and create special wedding films for them that are uniquely them. 💕
Anyway, let's fast forward to the big day! When I stepped foot into the hotel room at Hotel Duval where the girls and Erica were getting ready in the morning, I was floored by her gorgeous ballgown and the bridesmaids' blush sequins dresses. To quote her big sister, Erica's dress was "four times her size". haha But seriously her Paloma Blanca gown is so elegant and grand and it fit Erica's theme and style so well. I think we can all agree that Erica looked absolutely stunning and radiant on her wedding day! Erica told me her day was going to be blush, gold, and sparkles, and it certainly was! ✨Everything from this day ran so smoothly thanks to the great vendors from the day and notably, the team at John Gandy Events. This day was absolutely breathtaking! The stars of the night, Erica and Jeff, looked incredible and you could just tell in their faces that their hearts were filled with so much love and joy. These two are such a perfect compliment to the other and I'm wishing them many sweet blessings now and for years to come! Thank you again, Erica & Jeff, for having Jacob and I film and create special wedding videos of your special day!
