You know the story. Boy meets girl… or in this case, girl’s mom on a plane. Stephanie and Jake’s story has one of the best beginnings of all time. On a flight to Nashville, Jake helped a lady stow her carry-on bag, they started to chat, and she mentioned that he might love her daughter. Jake left his business card with Stephanie’s mom — and after a few months, Stephanie finally looked him on a social media and sent him the message that really started it all. They became friends for a few years, and in 2016, they started dating and never looked back.

On a vacation to the couple’s favorite spot in Oregon in 2018, Jake planned the ultimate surprise. Even on a 30 degree day on a snowy mountain, he managed to warm Stephanie’s heart with a hilarious, endearing moment on one knee — and of course, a beautiful ring didn’t hurt in sealing the deal, either.

The couple chose the Noelle hotel in downtown Nashville as their venue to say, “I do,” and they created a fun Gatsby theme to play up the hotel’s art deco style. Their cascading flowers and vintage touches were perfect. After an intimate ceremony, sharing vows in front of their family and friends, Stephanie and Jake headed down to the hotel’s speakeasy for some one-of-a-kind photos and an amazing reception.

Stephanie admits that she was nervous about having a wedding video — the fears of your day being portrayed as cheesy are real! — but looking back, she says it’s one of the best decisions she made for her wedding day. Having professionals on hand to wrangle the wedding party, catch those tiny special moments, and capture the best day of their lives was an addition Stephanie and Jacob are really grateful they chose. We’re so glad they did, too! We wish them all the best in their new chapter of lifelong love.

Nashville Wedding Video : Jamie + Jeff

matt g video

Jamie and Jeff met on Vanderbilt’s campus, but their friendship blossomed while studying abroad in the south of France. They returned home for their junior year, and their friendship changed into something more. The two were inseparable from then on! After seven fun years of dating, Jeff took Jamie on a Breckenridge ski trip. Little did she know, tucked inside his ski jacket was the ring of her dreams. On their last run of the day, he asked Jamie to stop and “take a selfie,” but instead, he slipped to one knee and asked her to marry him. Right in the middle of the quiet ski run, she said yes - and they headed down the mountain to find her family waiting to celebrate!

Jamie and Jeff woke up to a rainy wedding day - but they couldn’t have been more pleased. Their day was romantic, candlelit and cozy, and the weather added the perfect touch. Gorgeous florals, velvet accents, and beautiful candles set the mood for this beautiful Cannery Ballroom wedding. 

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 11.37.31 AM.png

This wedding was gorgeous, as you can see, but it was also FUN! We quickly found out that this crew knows how to dance - from the bridesmaids’ dance party before walking down the aisle to the flower girl tearing up the dance floor at the reception. The evening was also full of love, with touching toasts and friendly hugs all around. 

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 11.42.18 AM.png

Jamie and Jeff weren’t sure if they even wanted a wedding video until the last minute, but looking back on it now, they’re so grateful they made that call - and we’re so glad we answered. We worked with the happy couple to make filming a stress-free, fun process, and we know they’ll be able to cherish their wedding day memories for a lifetime. Cheers to you, Jamie and Jeff!

Nashville Wedding Video : Sharon + Thomas

Sharon and Thomas met at work in the heart of New York City, and they bonded over their love of Central Park. Their relationship blossomed as they walked those pathways through so many seasons, so it was only right that Thomas proposed on one of their favorite hills in the middle of the park. After Sharon said yes, he suggested that they celebrate with a drink at The Boathouse. She walked in to see her family waiting there for her! Thomas had flown them into the city to celebrate - the perfect ending to a beautiful proposal.

Sharon and Thomas wanted a classic wedding that didn’t feel fussy, and they wanted to leave plenty of room for fun! The Benton Chapel was the perfect backdrop for a special ceremony that the couple truly made their own, all while honoring timeless traditions. The outpouring of love from their families was something special, and we loved getting a front row seat to their “I do”s - and to their dance moves at the reception! 

Screen Shot 2019-07-29 at 11.48.17 AM.png

Sharon recently emailed us to say, “During wedding planning, someone told me that despite being surrounded by all your loved ones on your wedding day, the people you actually spend the most time with (other than each other) are the photographer and videographer. We were super happy to spend the day with you and are thrilled with the excellent job you did.” We loved spending the day with you, too, Sharon and Thomas! It was a blast to capture all the highlights from your special day, and we hope you’ll love looking back on your wedding for years and years.

Nashville Wedding Video : Kristin + Jody

Screen Shot 2019-03-22 at 1.36.38 PM.png

Kristin and Jody met at a work training event, and an ordinary day turned into a life-changing one. They quickly became a couple in love, and during a trip to Napa for Kristin’s birthday, Jody got down on one day and gave her the best gift of all - the start of a lifetime together. Oh, and also a gorgeous ring.

The happy couple’s wedding day was classically elegant and absolutely gorgeous. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center was a perfect venue for a traditional wedding, and Kristin and Jody selected beautiful greenery and lighting that added the perfect touch. Looking back on their day, they both remember the “firsts” - their first look together was sweet and tender as they read letters to one another, and the first moment they entered the reception hall, they were overwhelmed by the love and celebratory spirit in the room.

Nashville Wedding Video : Jenna + Shane

Jenna and Shane met during their freshman year of college at Vanderbilt. There was an immediate spark, but it took another year and a James Bond-themed party to officially bring them together. Shane went as Jenna’s date, and they never looked back!

One Saturday morning, Shane and Jenna were headed to brunch downtown, and when Jenna got a text that their friends were running late, Shane suggested they walk along the river's edge to pass the time. To Jenna’s shock, he got down on one knee with the Nashville skyline in the background and popped the question! Turns out, their friends weren’t late - they were part of the scheme. Incognito photographers were even nearby to capture the moment. After Jenna said yes, Shane brought her to the George Jones Museum rooftop, where she found family and friends waiting with champagne to celebrate!

The happy couple wanted a classically elegant wedding, filled with all the details that make Nashville unique. From riding a trolley with their entire bridal party to hosting the reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame, the day was filled with Music City moments.

Looking back on their special day, Jenna and Shane really remember the “firsts” best - their first look, first dance, and family dances are all highlights of their joyous celebration. They also loved all the fun moments, including a football garter toss and late night hot dogs! We had a blast shooting this Nashville wedding, and we’re so glad Jenna and Shane love their wedding video! We wish this couple many more adventures around their city in the years to come.

Cecilia and Ronnie met at Gold’s Gym and quickly fell for each other. After two years together, the couple took a trip out to Denver to visit Cecilia’s sister. Since it was her family trip, she didn’t suspect much - but after a beautiful hike up St. Mary’s Glacier, she turned around to see Ronnie down on one knee. She was surprised, but of course, she said, “Yes!”

At East Ivy Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee, Cecilia and Ronnie tied the knot in a whimsical, elegant outdoor ceremony. Looking back on March 31, 2018, they remember their vows as the sweetest moment of their perfect day - filled with emotion as they got to make their commitment to one another with the support of so many people they both love.

They danced the night away in a garden sprinkled with hanging lanterns - a perfect end to a beautiful day. We really loved being a part of this one, and we’re wishing the happy couple a lifetime of love!

Nashville Wedding Video : Starr + Alan

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.34.01 PM.png

Starr & Alan met at Auburn University, but back then, they had no idea a love story would unfold. It was fitting that Auburn brought them back together, though - they reconnected at a football watch party in Houston years later. We don’t know if Auburn won that game, but Starr and Alan sure did. They made plans for their first date the very next day, and they’ve been together ever since.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.34.55 PM.png

Three years into their relationship, Alan joined Starr’s family on a trip to Mexico. After a long day spear fishing, Starr decided on a low-key date night in the city, but Alan had other plans. A sunset stroll on the beach led them to a lighthouse in the middle of town, where Alan got on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Of course, she said yes.

This sweet couple tied the knot in Nashville, TN on November 18, 2017. They chose the lovely Bridge Building as their venue, transforming it into an indoor garden that highlighted the Nashville skyline. Big Events captured this perfectly by using greenery, candlelight and elegant decor to set the tone for the evening. The weather was moody, but the atmosphere was buzzing with energy through every joyful moment of Alan and Starr’s wedding - there was plenty of champagne popping and shoes dancing the night away. It’s so clear to see that this couple is deeply in love - with great senses of humor and gracious spirits to boot! Watching the joy these two had as they celebrated with friends and family was something special. We loved personalizing their story and memorializing moments from their perfect day that they can keep for years and years to come.
