David + Elizabeth didn’t have your typical wedding. They have been together for 10 years and waited until everyone had the opportunity to be married. They didn’t have a formal maid of honor or best main either, there weren’t a ton of speeches and they didn’t have a first dance. Their wedding was completely non-traditional because that’s the way they are. Their relationship began as friends and blossomed into something serious. They were two old-souls that crossed paths to find each other. The two became one under the chuppah on October 3, 2015 and their wedding and reception was both celebrated at Goldner Walsh Garden & Home in Pontiac, Michigan.
We clicked with David + Elizabeth because they are a very self-less and genuine couple. They push each other together for the better and always have fun together. Their wedding was filmed in the greenhouse and we wanted their video to feel very light and airy. Elizabeth + David are incredibly fun and goofy together – from the sharp sense of humor to Elizabeth grabbing David’s butt during the first look – we wanted to capture their personality authentically. They are all about family and close friends and we wanted to show all the communal love throughout this video.
We structured this film into essentially three short stories. The first story focused on bringing their family and friends into the video to speak about their sincerity and playfulness. The second part was about Elizabeth + David, their vows and their complete devotion to each other. The last part of this film transitioned into everybody coming together to culminate with lots of dancing and laughing. Another important focus into making Elizabeth + David’s film was the creative process of reflecting their personality and loose vibes from the rustic venue. We shot much of the day with handheld cameras, we color-graded this film with warmer colors and choose a very unique and diverse soundtrack to complement each story. Happy Anniversary Elizabeth + David, we loved filming your special day!
