Kelly and David at Plano’s Willow Bend Church and Glen Eagles Country Club in Dallas Wedding Videos
The groom was very nonchalant about the prospect of getting married until he saw his bride and then tears of joy began to flow. David and his groomsmen arrived at Willow Bend Church in a long stretch Hummer and the antics began. A much more sedate Kelly arrived in a black stretch limousine. Kelly and David were married at the church he attended, Willow Bend Church in Plano.
Kelly looked lovely in her lace gown with a Queen Anne neckline and buttons down the back. Her tulle fingertip veil was edged with beaded lace. She carried a bright red bouquet of roses, amaryllis, anemones and peonies. The church was awash in poinsettias which lent a festive air to the ceremony.
As if the sight of his beautiful bride was not enough to bring tears to the groom, the father-of-the-bride made a charge to David which was pretty daunting. “Love her with all your heart, buddy,” Dad said. David answered, “Will do.”
Photographer Susan Gilbert made the post-ceremony photo session a lot of fun with her creative poses. Then everyone headed to Glen Eagles Country Club for the reception where sweet-toothed guests had plenty to keep them occupied. The multi-tiered wedding cake looked as if it were covered in fresh snow on which ice crystals were beginning to form. A chocolate fondant limb grew up the side of the cake sprouting red fondant poinsettias. Also on hand were delicious Christmas Sugar Cookies home-baked by Kelly and David’s friends and family.
The dance floor was a hive of activity. The guests filled the floor for an energetic line dance. Then Kelly led them in a conga line. The bride changed into street clothes, but stopped by the dance floor for some air guitar action before grabbing her groom and heading outside. The guests showered the couple with faux snow which looked very, very real as the flurries swirled around the bride and groom.
Behind the scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
To set the mood for Kelly and David’s wedding, candles were the only lighting in the church. The only other light came from the hall. The shadowy church worked to our advantage from one standpoint, because it allowed our cameraman to be invisible as he stood in the front of the church. At the same time, the darkness creating a shadowy bride. Our experience with this sort of setting allowed us to know what settings to use to compensate for the darkness and show the bride’s lovely face.
Another trick we’ve developed over the years is the use of a lapel microphone on the groom. When we started using the technology the goal was to get a clear audio recording of the vows. What we discovered is that we’re also able to get precious whispered sentiments that the PA system or a hand-held mic would miss. That’s how the viewer knows what the father of the bride said to David as the ceremony began.
Another thing we’re proud of is the professional studio where we took all the audio and video we recorded at Kelly and David’s wedding. Over a period of weeks we edited and mixed these recordings to create a unique video Kelly and David can enjoy all the days of their marriage.
