Chapel Hill, NC
There are a few times through out the year that really serve as a reminder to us of not only why we love our job of filming weddings to the best of our ability, but also serves as a reminder to us on what we promised when WE got married. Rachelle and Chris’ story is one of tragedy. A freak accident. But how they decided to handle the cards they were dealt should remind ALL OF US of what marriage really, truly is. That it is not about our happiness, but our spouses…Through sickness and health.
Instead of telling you here, you can learn more about their story before the wedding and be inspired on the places below. In telling their story, all these news outlets featured the Same Day Edit film we made for them! So excited to have been given that opportunity!
Watch their story on NBC’s Today Show

We were honored to film their wedding and you can view their Same Day Edit film that gives you a window into their perfect day. We worked with some of the Triangle areas most talented and humble vendors. You can thank Erin McLean Events for all those beautiful sunflowers! And Martha Manning was a joy of a photographer to work with. Check out her images from the day here. Congrats Rachelle and Chris! Keep inspiring! Thanks for allowing others to see your example through the power of video.

Let’s see. What ingredients make this a wedding that screams unique? As you watch Joie and Cody’s wedding day unfold in this film you’ll find a historic bed and breakfast, Super 8mm film, “Secret Garden”-esque decor, balloons during the photoshoot, a custom corset worn as the wedding dress, bride in cowboy boots, Spider brooches, an epic first dance (see the full dance here to Weezer), and a bride and groom that wrote personal vows that we will all would envy. And even take to heart. It was a perfect day. And you’ll have to watch the rest of the film to see all the details we didn’t mention.
As evident by the friends and family in attendance, Joie and Cody bring light to everyone around them. They are quirky, they are different, and they seem to rub off on everyone else. And they rubbed off on us too. We were honored to know that Joie chose us because she felt we were the only wedding film company that could truly capture her day in a way that was unique and SCREAMED…them. Hopefully we passed the test. One of our favorite weddings of the year. Thanks for having us Joie and Cody! We are privileged to call you friends now. (Cody, keep the photobooth pictures between us, okay?)
Check out a few of the AMAZING wedding photos captured by Greg Meyers. You know Joie had to have unique photos as well. Good job sir!

We have had an incredible year so far and get so excited every time we get to edit a new wedding film. Just wanted to give everyone a sneak peak into our Wilmington studio space so you can see the team all hard at work! (I get credit too, I was taking the photos). To our 2011 families: Thanks for trusting us with your wedding day memories. We love what we do!
