Leigh & Derrick – Wedding Highlights

Charleston, SC

As we all know from Alanis Morisette, no one wants rain on their wedding day. But Leigh and Derrick didn’t let the hot and stormy weather spoil their wedding. Luckily, the ceremony was indoors at First Baptist Church in downtown Charleston. The couple wrote their own vows and when the pastor delivered them you could truly feel the love between the two. This was such an easy wedding to film thanks to event designer LUKE WILSON, who provided great lighting, flowers, and décor. The ambiance Luke helped create didn’t stop there though. After the ceremony, the whole gang headed over to LOWNDES GROVE PLANTATION for an elegant southern reception at one of the most beautiful locations in Charleston. The wedding was absolutely stunning right there on the waterway as the sun was setting. And the guests danced the night away to LOOSE CHAIN. We especially loved their extended rendition of the wedding classic “Shout!” As you can see from the video, most of the guests shared our sentiments.

Just a little background info on Leigh and Derrick: The couple’s first date was to a fireworks show on the Fourth of July. Exactly seven years later, Leigh and Derrick celebrated their engagement in Aruba while watching fireworks. So it’s only fitting that they start their marriage off with a bang, right? The couple continued the trend, only this time a little quieter. As the bride and groom were exiting the reception, the guests lined up outside and were given sparklers to light the way to a vintage car waiting for the couple. It made for a really serene moment and a great way to cap off an exceptional wedding!

P.S. Did you see that amazing lightning as they left!?

Leigh and Derrick, thanks so much for bringing us down and trusting us to film this exciting day for you both. We had a blast and it was truly a classy, yet hoppin’ party! Enjoy this short film!
