Art was pretty nervous about his wedding day. Tears rushed to his eyes when his bride entered the chapel. When she reached his side, they discussed his nervousness in whispers as the ceremony went on around them. His hands shook as they cut their wedding cake. Once the formalities were behind him and he had Amanda in his arms for the First Dance, the nerves disappeared and you could see just how happy Art was to have the beautiful Amanda as his companion for life. Amanda and Art were married at Ashton Gardens in Corinth.
Amanda was decked out from head to toe for her big day. Her veil was held in place by a sparkling headband. Her strapless ballgown with sweetheart neckline was a real showstopper. The skirt featured wired ruffles running down the length of it, topped off with a sparkling belt and lace bodice. Under the gown she chose lace espadrilles – a comfortable choice proving she had brains as well as beauty. The bridesmaids wore short lace dresses in a bright coral with turquoise high-heeled pumps.
Ashton Gardens looked particularly lovely on Art and Amanda’s wedding day. The gorgeous weather enhanced the view through the three windows surrounding the chapel, looking out onto beautiful wooded scenery. Pews were decorated by nosegays with large bows and an ornate urn on the stage held an elaborate floral arrangement. Also gracing the stage were a large wrought iron candelabra, a unity candle and a unity cross.
After the ceremony family and friends joined the couple for some photos and then went to the reception space, just a few feet away. Art and Amanda lingered in the chapel for a few more shots with Therwhanger Photography and then strolled across to the reception. As they made a dramatic entrance down Ashton Gardens’ elegant curving staircase, DJ Tommy L. Chamber of Shon-C introduced them to the excited guests.
Guests enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner, had fun in the photobooth and then hit the dance floor. The DJ kept everyone hopping with a wide variety of music and activities, including the bouquet and garter tosses. By the end of the evening, Amanda traded her wedding finery in on a pair of shorts with an embroidered boyfriend shirt. Then Art escorted Amanda to a waiting car while friends and family waved farewell with glowing sparklers.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
We love weddings, because no matter how many we attend, we find something wonderful to enjoy. We were particularly happy to be invited to this one, because we’d videoed her sister Allysa’s wedding just a few years before. On this day, Art’s extreme nervousness and excitement made the day very special to us and our equipment helped us highlight it in our video.
We used two cameras to video the wedding – one at the back of the chapel and another up front on the stage, hidden behind a floral display. Our camera on the stage caught the bride’s entrance and the audience’s response, while the camera in the back focused on the nervous groom. During the ceremony we kept the camera at the front on the couple and we could hear what they said, because we’d put a wireless lavalier microphone on the groom. That’s how we captured their interaction.
Because we use professional grade HD videocameras we’re able to stay out of sight while we get the shots. Most videographers don’t have the same zoom capabilities as our cameras, so they have to stay very close to the bride. We’re able to set up our cameras, get the shots and be virtually invisible throughout the day.
