Chelsea and Lance Rock the Hickory Creek Annex in Deep Ellum in Wedding Videos Dallas TX
A hand-painted wooden signboard, outside Hickory Street Annex, welcomed guests to Chelsea and Lance’s wedding. Before the ceremony, a Knockout Beauty artist applied the finishing touches to the very pretty bride, while charming Lance and his groomsmen polished off some scotch and cigars.
In the Annex, a repurposed warehouse, white lights hung from the ceiling among large, round, paper lanterns. Smaller lanterns, dangled from the ends of the aisles, echoing what was above.
After ushers seated the guests of honor, a tiny flower girl, very intent on placing her petals in just the right spots, promenaded down the aisle. Then with a bouquet of roses from Haute Floral in one hand and her father’s sleeve in the other, Chelsea followed the flower girl to the groom’s side.
Branches of romantic twinkle lights and cascading sheers framed the couple as they exchanged vows. Chelsea’s white satin dress glowed in the soft light, while fire from her dramatic chandelier earrings danced around her face. As she left the ceremony on her new husband’s arm, her long ruffled train and flowing veil swept along behind her.
Once the formal ceremony was over, table settings in the reception area announced the fun had begun. Burlap and twine covered bottles, on burlap table runners, held bouquets of white baby’s breath. Upended wine corks displayed place cards. Flickering votives shone on white linen.
As their first dance ended, Lance dipped his bride low to the ground and laid on a great big Texas-sized kiss. Then he playfully dove under Chelsea’s gown in search of the garter. Guests hammed it up in the 4 Flashes Photo Booth with feather boas, hats and wild sunglasses, making keepsakes for the couple.
A beautiful beribboned cake of four tiers, from Kakes by Katy, was topped with a distinctive cursive initial. As the couple shared the first slice, a scrumptious Grooms cake, a strawberry-topped cheesecake, peeked over the couple’s shoulder. CN Catering provided sustenance with delicious food and beverages all evening long, while Le Force Entertainment kept the dance floor swinging. Then as the long black limousine arrived, guests formed a tunnel of sparklers to bid them farewell. Congratulations to Mirium Ahurnman Events for a spectacular production.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
Arriving an hour and a half before Chelsea and Lance’s ceremony, we set up our equipment to see and hear everything, while remaining virtually invisible to participants, officiants and guests. Filming in this location required a piece of proprietary equipment we developed for special situations. In order to record Chelsea’s sweet smile during the vows, the special camera, affixed atop an adjustable tripod, was set up behind the groomsmen. The cameraman, wearing videoglasses, used a remote control device to direct the camera. A small wireless microphone hidden on the groom caught special spoken memories. We used other cameras to search out quiet moments, like a flower girl playing among empty chairs, stolen kisses and Hickory Annex’s lights glowing in the dark, to add texture to the more lively events. The end result provides and experience more complete than any guest or participant could have enjoyed.
We sweat the small stuff, so you don’t have to.
