Mary and Matthew – The Cooper Aerobics Center in Wedding Video Dallas TX
The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome, but the father stole the show. During the reception he sang the bride a lullaby – a Beatles song for which he wrote new lyrics. Mary married Matthew along the creek at the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas, with the blessing and love of her very special father.
Mary looked lovely in her ivory satin dress with sleek contemporary styling. Devoid of distracting decorations, the full skirt fit onto a corset bodice with a sweetheart neckline. Sheer illusion was attached to the bodice to form cap sleeves and continued down to her waist with satin covered buttons. The stunning gown was made by Mary’s mom.
Before he sang the lullaby with the live band, Jurassic Rock, the father told his guests when Mary was six years old she’d told him she wanted to get married in a field. He made her childhood wish come true in a wedding day full of entertainments. Under the reception marquee, guests were treated to a delicious buffet meal. They could record memories of the wedding day in a photo booth complete with props or sit for a portrait by a caricaturist. Croquet and a bean bag toss were also available. Even the six year old Mary would have approved.
After their incredible day, Mary and Matthew strolled away hand in hand along the creek, with the lights of the evening reflecting into the water. With one final wave they said good-bye to their guests and headed into their new life together.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
Mary and Matthew’s wedding was spread out over several acres of the Cooper Aerobics Center. Being everywhere and capturing all the sights and sounds while remaining invisible to the guests and participants in the outdoor setting required a lot of fancy footwork , technology and experience. We wanted to capture all of Mary’s field of dreams.
When we came back to our studio and reviewed the video and audio we recorded that day, we knew we wanted Mary’s father’s song to be at the core of it. We edited and mixed the footage, weaving the song in between all the special moments of the day. Another editing trick we used was to insert the groom’s vows with Mary’s vows so that it seems they are repeating them to one another without the clergy’s prompting.
We tell our brides that no matter what happens on their wedding day, good and bad, they are going to love their wedding video. Mary and Matthew’s wedding day was full of good things, giving us a lot of special moments to choose from when making their video and when we were done, they loved it.
