I couldn’t wait to film and edit this wedding! As soon as Amber contacted us and told us her and Justin’s story, I just knew this was going to be a fun wedding. Amber lived in South Africa as a missionary and met Justin while she was there. Not only is Justin cool because of his South African accent, but he is a very talented and successful recording artist. Upon talking to Justin about my idea to film him singing one of his songs to use for the highlights video, he told about the song featured in this video, titled “You”. He wrote it secretly for Amber and she wouldn’t even know about it until their first dance! We had fun keeping the filming of “You” a secret until NOW! I loved how it turned out, especially how cool it is that he is sitting on the steps of the chapel. Very intimate, and very honest. Their ceremony was very God centered and their reception was a blast! I love parties at the Pewter Rose Bistro in Charlotte. Very eclectic, and they know how to set up an inviting reception environment with style. We also enjoyed working with Darrin at D&J Photography. We hope to team up with him again soon. Enjoy your wedding highlights video Amber and Justin, and thanks for allowing us to combine our creative outlets with yours. The song is absolutely beautiful! Leave your comments people! And if you are interested in more of Justin’s work, you can check out his music on his website and on itunes.

P.S. The butterfly was totally random! It wouldn’t leave us alone, so we decided to try to use him to our advantage. Turned out to be a big asset to the video! I think it goes great with the lyrics if you listen closely.

  2. The chapel in your video is Morning Star Lutheran Chapel, which is available for weddings and small groups. You did a very nice job using its unique architecture and historic nature to enhance a special day.

  3. Excellent work Life Stage! It was a pleasure to join you in documenting such a fun wedding. I hope our paths cross again soon!
