One of my favorite parts about shooting a wedding day is seeing how each couple interacts with each other.  No two couples interact the same way, and it is always such a beautiful thing to see.  It didn’t take long on Megan and Quinton’s day to see that they were both so full of laughter and smiles on their wedding day.  Neither seemed stressed about the day, just happiness.  Megan inquired with me before they had even booked their venue, and surprisingly, the venue they booked, The Oak Ridge Estate, was less than an hour away from where I live!


“You’re getting married!  This is really happening right now!  Did you ever think this day would come?!”  Over the last few years, I’ve heard so many different crazy, wonderful, absurd, and terrifying things while filming bridal prep.  During Megan’s bridal prep, one of her bridesmaids shouted this out, and I believe it is what every bride (and many reading this) are so looking forward to hearing.  You spend years growing up waiting to hear these words, and be at your wedding day.  The mood and excitement in the room only grew from there, and pretty soon we had a room full of excited bridesmaids who just couldn’t wait to see Megan walk down the isle!  Megan and Quinton decided to do personal, hand-written vows, and I highly suggest doing this if you can!  Knowing that no one else will say those exact words to another on their wedding day, mixed with the fact that we can tell such a better story, keeps us excited every time one of our clients tell us they are doing their own vows.  After the vows, the couple decided to do a dove release, and spend the rest of the night partying with friends at the beautiful estate.
