Brittany and Tim at Grand Prairie’s Historic Anderson Building
Brittany and Tim chose the Historic Anderson Building in Grand Prairie for their wedding venue. Built in 1915, this beautiful old building with copper ceilings and other unique architectural features has been beautifully restored and provided a lovely backdrop for their elegant affair.
During the First Look, on the building’s interior balcony, Tim appreciated Brittany’s stunning strapless ball gown. The dress was covered in lace and crystals, but his favorite part was the satin ribbons of the corseted bodice.
The bridesmaids chose short flowing black dresses in a variety of styles and carried bouquets of mixed flowers in shades of purple. The bride’s larger bouquet echoed her bridesmaid’s flowers, but included gorgeous Stargazer lilies. The men of the wedding party wore black tuxes with white calla lily boutonnieres. Wrist corsages of white flowers complimented the attractive ensembles of the mothers.
The nuptials were held beneath an ivy-covered archway in the center of the venue. Family and friends clustered all around and also looked down from the balcony overhead. The couple promised their devotion to one another and to God with Christian vows and demonstrated their family unity with a sand pouring ceremony.
Afterwards, pictures were made outside, while the space was rearranged for the reception. Back inside, champagne flowed while good food was savored. The couple cut their chic wedding cake, covered in silver flourishes, and then cherished their First Dance for its lack of interruptions. Finally, the couple escaped through a barrage of bubbles to start their new life together.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions – Dallas Wedding Videographers
Whatever the venue, LeniCam promises to be everywhere on your wedding day, recording all the important moments, while remaining virtually invisible. Accomplishing that during a ceremony like Brittany and Tim’s, where the guests surround the couple above and below, took a little more effort than it does in some venues, but we worked hard and utilized special custom-designed equipment to do what we said we’d do.
Though the low lighting in the building added the weddings romantic atmosphere, the guests were happy our cameras’ lights brightened things up and made it easier to see events throughout the room. To capture the sounds of the day, we placed wireless microphones on the groom and minister, and picked up audio from the cd player.
After the wedding, at our studio, we edited and mixed all the video and audio feeds we’d recorded during the day, creating a remarkable video which preserved memories of the day for Brittany and Tim.
