Category: Destination Weddings

Over our past five years of friendship, Emily has confessed to me many times that she has visited my site, watched my wedding films for hours, and cried. Of course, when she met Ryan and things started getting serious, I began hoping that I would be able to add Emily’s wedding to my list of wedding films too.

As a twist though, these two Texas born and raised Aggies opted for a less-traditional wedding option. With only their closest friends and family, they road-tripped all the way from the heat of Texas to Nashville, Tennessee, for an intimate wedding in the forested countryside. There, they shared letters and vows, dinner and dancing, and many quiet moments together.

We aren’t in Texas anymore, toto.

My wife and I loved getting away to a city where music was king, the chicken was hot, and the weddings were lit (I think that’s what the kids are saying these days). Nashville has joined the likes of Portland as one of our favorite cities to visit, and we hope to return and film another wedding there soon.

If you are getting married in Texas, Tennessee, or anywhere else for that matter, we would love to chat about filming your wedding! Please get in touch. 🙂

Yosemite – clouds rolled low through the valleys over plants that burst with dark green and orange hues. Waterfalls thundered hundreds of feet into crystal clear pools. Deer and other animals came close to look at us as much as we looked at them.

This wasn’t just a one day wedding, it was a four-day event involving campfires, bagpipes, hiking, pizza parties, an Aggie Football game, and of course some amazing vows said on Sentinel Beach in the heart of the valley. This wasn’t even a dedicated venue site for weddings. People just pull up, park, and get married on a first come, first served basis. I’ve filmed many laid-back weddings before, but this is on a whole new level.

Kristin said it best the first night we all arrived, Yosemite is the best place on earth. I hope to go back and film another wedding there soon.

Filmed by Matt Johnson and Skyler Fike. Special thanks to Jordan Laessig.

It is a big help to me when you use any of the above product links to Adorama, Amazon, and B&H and when you get anything. It costs you nothing, and helps me keep my site running. I have bought from all of these websites and I highly recommend them for their service, quality, and shipping speed.  I recommend them all personally.

Getting married in Yosemite? I would love to film it. Get in touch!
