Sarah & Nate – Same Day Edit

Wilmington, NC

BEST. WEDDING. EVER.

Nate & Sarah are hilariously “geeky”. So much so, that the theme of their wedding was based on their nerdiness. But it wasn’t without a great sense of style.

They formed a great team of Wilmington’s best vendors to make this wedding incredible. As we were walking around during the cocktail hour, we heard multiple guests say that the way the Bellamy Mansion was set up, with the combination of Salt Harbor Designs decor, was like something out of the Great Gatsby. I agree. And the “icing on the cake” was the cake itself, or should we say artwork, by Nicki’s Cakes.

To start off the festivities, Nate & Sarah (along with their dogs) led a literal PARADE of their guests with streamers, music and laughter down Market St. from the church to the reception, with the finish line on the front steps of Bellamy for a massive group picture! One of the best bands in the land, Chicago Spazmatics, (80′s nerd band) rocked the party all night, even incorporating a “cowbell” at times. Hilarious. And instead of a typical introduction at the reception, Nate & Sarah came barreling out dancing and jumping around to the tune of Black Eyed Peas, with nerd glasses on! You can see it in this short film of their wedding day, that we edited THE SAME NIGHT. Nate & Sarah were so overwhelmed at the end of the night when they saw this. They just couldn’t believe we put it together for them to see that instantaneously. It was a great moment for them both to be able to relive the day at the end of the night like that.Especially being able to see their “first look”, where they were able to see each other privately before the wedding ceremony started.

Enjoy this film friends. Nate & Sarah, THANK YOU for allowing us to witness this incredible event. This was one for the books.
