Marilyn and Joshua – Occasions at Stone River in Royce City with Mariachi Wedding Reception in Dallas Wedding Video
While other people in Joshua’s high school algebra class were focused on mathematical equations, he was busy winning the heart of his soulmate. He figured out the right formula, because he and Marilyn were married at Occasions at Stone River in Royce City.
For her nuptials, Marilyn wore a sleeveless brocade gown with a V-neck and A-Line Styling. She topped off her up-do with a lace edged veil and carried a bouquet of pink roses. Her flower girl wore a cloud of white tulle with a pink sash and the bridesmaids wore long black gowns.
The bride and groom wrote their vows to one another, revealing a little of their history together and their heartfelt love for one another. The setting was perfect for their outdoor wedding. The afternoon sun bathed the rural landscape with gold. The ceremony took place in a white gazebo, before a white picket fence and the guests sat in white folding chairs. It almost seemed as if there had been a break in time and the guests were witnessing a piece of history.
To entertain their guests at the reception, Marilyn and Joshua hired a band of nine mariachis. The music was beautiful and the mariachis were stunning in their black uniforms with silver conchos down the sides. The multi-tiered wedding cake was decorated with silk roses and was accompanied by a chocolate groom’s cake.
The dance floor was a busy, crowded place – especially when the dj played rock and roll. At the endof the evening, Joshua and Marilyn escaped through a cascade of bubbles.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
The beautiful golden haze that made the scene of Marilyn and Joshua’s wedding so beautiful, also made demands on the skills of our videographers. Our camera people arrived an hour and a half before the ceremony to set up the equipment for the wedding. The sun was in a completely different place than it would be during the ceremony, so we had to guess what the conditions would be later.
One of the cameras we used for the ceremony is a special proprietary camera we designed for special situations. Because of the way the ground sloped near the ceremony, to get close-ups of the vows, we needed to use an extra tall camera and video monitoring glasses. Our videographer and camera tripod was down the slope and over to the side, out of the guests line of sight. The videocamera peeked over the hill and the cameraman watched the ceremony through the glasses to make his adjustments
As soon as the ceremony was over everything had to be moved inside for the reception. That’s a quick transition. We had to move the cameras and we also need to coordinate the audio with the performers and dj, so the sound will be crystal clear on the video. We didn’t need the extra tall tripod any more, so we switched to a dolly with wheels which allowed us to more freely follow the action. Our experience with these quick maneuvers paid off. The Dallas Wedding Video was everything Marilyn and Joshua wanted it to be.
