Brooke & Chris- Wedding Highlights

Wilmington, NC

Don’t you just want to hang out with these two?! Such a cool group of people at this wedding. We didn’t want it to end.

I knew Brooke was a smart girl when she planned her wedding in one of the most beautiful locations for a wedding in NC….during Azalea season! The day turned out beautifully at Orton Plantation. This was just one of those weddings that had style, personality, and emotion all around. I think this is one of the most amazing weddings Wendy at A Beautiful Event designed. She nailed the flowers and reception decor. But The Balcony on Dock is due some credit as well. It’s hands down the best venue to have an eclectic wedding downtown. But back to Brooke and Chris. One thing I appreciated about both of them during the day, is they were genuine. And I feel we are also able to get some pretty amazing footage of them, because we were able to immediately create a relationship. That is such an important thing, when families can feel comfortable with their vendors during the day.

I chose to edit this film to an instrumental song, because there were so many powerful moments spoken during the ceremony and especially during the vows, that lyrics to a song, just weren’t needed. I hope you agree. One of my favorite moments we have EVER filmed, is when we caught Chris’ dad give Brooke a kiss on the forehead as they watch Chris dance with his mom. Such an intimate moment. Needless to say, we love our job. Enjoy this film Brooke and Chris. You both were amazing people to be around.
