Marissa and Josh
Videographer for Dallas Wedding Captures Marissa and Josh at Harmony Chapel in Aubrey
A pine needle wreath with red poinsettias graced the door of the chapel. The bridesmaids’ long, one-shouldered gowns were red. The bride wore holly in her hair and carried white poinsettias. Even the something old was a grandmother’s handkerchief emblazoned with poinsettias. Christmas cheer was everywhere at Marissa and Josh’s December wedding in Aubrey’s Harmony Chapel.
The chapel has an over-the-river-and-through-the woods look that feels as if you’re visiting your great-grand-someone. The rural setting, the stone exterior and wood interior warm the heart while they please the eye. Add holiday décor and you can almost taste the candied yams.
Marissa looked stunning in her strapless white satin ballgown with a sweetheart neckline. The empire waistline was accented in the front by a huge bow with a rhinestone clasp. For the ceremony, the bride wrapped up in a white fur stole looking every bit the winter bride.
The reception was held right next door and the holiday theme continued. As the couple enjoyed their First Dance, no words were needed, because their faces told the whole story. These two people are very much in love.
Josh needed a little coaching from Marissa to get the cake cutting down. The single men participating in the garter toss needed a little coaching from the single women, too. Even the DJ thought they needed to be a do-over.
At the end of the evening, Marissa and Josh’s friends brightened the night with exploding sparklers as the bride and groom made their way to a waiting horse and carriage.
Behind the scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
There was nowhere to hide a cameraperson in the small Harmony Chapel, so we were very glad to have our custom designed proprietary camera. With it we were able to catch close-ups of Marissa as she vowed her everlasting love to Josh without being a visual distraction to the couple’s guests. We were also glad we’d put a wireless mic on Josh’s lapel. That’s how we caught Marissa’s whispered instructions as the couple cut their poinsettia trimmed cake.
Our cameraperson arrived an hour and a half before the ceremony to set up their cameras and audio. Then they captured the pre-ceremony excitement. They stayed until Marissa and Josh rode away in the carriage. Throughout the evening, the videographer was everywhere, recording everything, while remaining virtually invisible to the guests and participants. Then back in the studio we edited and mixed the footage to create a wedding video Josh and Marissa can enjoy for all their days to come.
