Nashville Wedding Video : Stephanie + Jake

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 : Lauren + Chase

Lauren and Chase through mutual friends at church, but it wasn’t until six months later that their paths crossed again. Chase had a work meeting in Lauren’s office, and when she got to her desk that day, she found a sticky note asking her out for coffee! It was love at first sip - the couple fell hard and never looked back. Nine months later, Lauren and her best friends were on a girls’ trip to Lake Como, Italy, when she spotted a man who looked just like Chase. As they got closer, her heart started pounding - it was Chase, and when he dropped down on one knee, she couldn’t say yes fast enough.

The happy couple dreamed of an elegant, classic wedding - something that resembled the old Louisiana plantations of Lauren’s hometown. The Estate at Cherokee Dock was the perfect spot to say, “I do,” complete with a gorgeous garden that tied in beautifully with their florals and greenery.

Lauren and Chase’s wedding was everything they’d dreamed of: elegant, fun, and full of love. Looking out at the grinning faces of friends and family as they were announced for the first time as husband and wife was a moment they’ll cherish forever! As they think about their wedding day now, they’re grateful for the little moments tucked into the busyness - getting ready with their wedding party and meaningful moments with their parents.

We loved working with Lauren and Chase. Lauren was kind enough to say she loved working with us, too! In her words, “I wasn't stressed one bit about the videography. I appreciated Matt’s phone call a few days before to talk through everything. His excitement was contagious, and we had a great experience!” We’re wishing Lauren and Chase many, many years of happiness together, and we’re so glad we got to be a part of your wedding day.

Nashville Wedding Video : Lindsay + David

Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 7.49.13 AM.png
Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 7.45.14 AM.png

Lindsay and David are lovers of the outdoors. In fact, it’s what brought them together! They met at a 2016 wildlife expo, and they hit it off right away. David actually caught the flu during the trip, but these two were already so head-over-heels for one another that they spent the week together anyway. What’s a little flu in the face of love, right? 

Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 10.00.02 AM.png
Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 7.44.56 AM.png

One day, a friend of David’s was having “boat trouble,” and David brought Lindsay along to help him figure out the problem. He asked her to go to the front of the boat to look for some things, and when she returned, he was on one knee with a ring in his hand (and a GoPro set up to capture it all, unbeknownst to her)! They joined friends and family for a celebratory crawfish boil - with champagne, too, of course. 

Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 10.08.17 AM.png
Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 7.42.11 AM.png

David and Lindsay wanted a classic, romantic wedding, with live oaks and Spanish moss to give it a true Charleston feel. They chose white, blush, and lots of greenery to mix with the outdoors and the historic venue, and everything came together beautifully. As a special touch, the couple planned strategic moments throughout their day to slow down and appreciate the start of the rest of their lives. Some of our favorites: a meaningful first look with letters for one another, a moment to look out at the congregation and take in their support and love, and even a few minutes to dig up bourbon they’d buried onsite earlier - it’s good luck!

Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 7.44.10 AM.png

Evidence of family and friends’ love was all over this wedding, from a cross that Lindsay’s dad built for the ceremony to corn hole boards hand painted by David’s dad for the guests to enjoy (Clemson and UGA, of course). Both of their parents’ wedding photos were on display, too - a tribute to a legacy of love. 

Screen Shot 2019-08-21 at 7.42.32 AM.png

We’ve known Lindsay and her family for a while - we actually we got to film her sister’s wedding five years ago! - so we knew working with this couple would be pure joy. We had a blast, and we wish Lindsay and David all the best in their marriage. We hope their wedding video will remind them of the happiest day of their lives for years to come.

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. 

Screen Shot 2019-07-29 at 11.47.45 AM.png
Screen Shot 2019-07-29 at 11.50.56 AM.png

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 : Jamie + Travis

Jamie and Travis became the best of friends in eighth grade algebra class. In the years that followed, feelings deepened - it’s like these two hearts knew to wait until the timing was right. A steady friendship turned into a beautiful relationship, and finally, Jamie and Travis got to meet at the end of the aisle to say “yes” to a lifetime of being best friends.

Screen Shot 2019-06-21 at 8.43.42 AM.png
Screen Shot 2019-06-21 at 8.46.13 AM.png

The happy couple dreamed up a gorgeous winter wedding filled with marble, gold, and shades of burgundy. They wanted an elegant day that would truly match the celebration of their lives joining together forever, and Mint Springs Farm was the perfect place for a formal (but fun!) day to say “I do.” They said just that, through a few sweet tears, in a beautiful faith-filled ceremony. Jamie and Travis are clearly loved by many - the wedding toasts were some of the sweetest we’ve heard.

Nashville Wedding Video : Natalie + Andrew

Natalie and Andrew met in college at Georgia Tech. They ran into each other one night at a friend’s party, and “I’ll walk you home” turned into chatting on the front steps until the sun came up - and they never looked back. A few happy years later, the couple found themselves vacationing in Santorini. As they stood on their balcony, overlooking the ocean and discussing plans to meet a friend for dinner, Andrew changed the conversation - and both of their lives - by asking Natalie to marry him! The friend who was supposed to be waiting at the restaurant was a few houses down, capturing photos of every special moment.

Neverland Farms felt like a magical greenhouse the first time Natalie and Andrew stepped inside, and they wanted their wedding day to feel the same way. They decorated with fun vintage elements like mismatched cake plates, antique glassware, and Victorian mirrors, and even drove away in a vintage car! With bright jewel tones that popped in the rustic venue, it was a beautiful day, down to the last detail.

Thinking back on their wedding day, Natalie and Andrew remember so many special moments, from reciting the vows they wrote to one another to watching their guests dance under a canopy of plants and twinkling lights at the reception. Magical is truly the perfect word to describe this happy couple’s first day as husband and wife.

Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 5.13.14 PM.png

We’re thrilled that Natalie and Andrew chose us to video their wedding day. They loved that we were able to capture footage without anyone even realizing - and we loved getting to be a part of such a gorgeous event for a great couple. We know they have so many good years ahead, and we hope they’ll look back on their wedding video and cherish those memories for the rest of their lives.

Nashville Wedding Video : Cassie + Miles

Cassie and Miles actually met when he briefly moved in with his sister - who happened to be Cassie’s roommate! Miles did move away, but after two years apart, the pair found themselves missing one another, and their long distance relationship began. The drive from Knoxville to Nashville was growing longer and longer with each trip, so when Cassie came to visit Miles for Christmas in 2017, he took her on a stroll through the sparkling lights of Cheekwood Gardens, and then gave her something even sparklier - a gorgeous engagement ring.  

Screen Shot 2019-04-23 at 11.30.35 AM.png

The couple wanted a wedding with a touch of sophistication and a whole lot of fun, and this day truly was a blast from morning to night. With details like glow stick sunglasses and friends being seated by fantasy football team, Cassie and Miles really made this day their own in all the best ways. In the craziness of the wedding day, the couple remembers their first look being a tender, special moment. To have a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle to just be together, taking in the best day of their lives, is something they’ll never forget.

Screen Shot 2019-04-23 at 11.41.25 AM.png

We loved working with these two, and we’re so glad they love their wedding video. Here are a few kind words from Cassie: “Working with Matt was wonderful. He brought great energy to compliment the craziness of the day, all while remaining calm and working well with my photographer. He was one of the best vendors I decided to choose. Our video is exactly what I wanted, and it’s one of the things I'll cherish the most for years to come.” We wish you a lifetime of happiness ahead, Miles and Cassie!
