Melissa and Brian at Paradise Cove on Lake Grapevine in Wedding Videos for Dallas TX
With a name like Paradise Cove, you’d expect a venue to be heavenly. Add fireworks and you’ve got a very spectacular wedding. Melissa and Brian were married at Paradise Cove in Southlake.
The bride and groom began their day with a private First Look. Melissa was stunning in her lace gown glistening with crystals. The Queen Anne neckline with cap sleeves showcased an intricate crystal necklace with matching earrings. The gown opened to a keyhole in back. Brian couldn’t resist dipping his bride into a kiss.
The open air chapel surrounded by a natural landscape created a beautiful backdrop for their touching ceremony. A breeze lifted Melissa lace-trimmed veil and frolicked among bushes of red roses, but nothing could distract the bride’s intense gaze from the face of her beloved. An enthusiastic embrace sealed the vows.
After the ceremony, everyone moved to the Grand Hall for a fun-filled reception. A small cake was used for the formal cake-cutting, because the guests had their choice of delicious-looking cupcakes in a variety of flavors. Though the cake was small it provided plenty of icing for a little face painting.
The DJ kept the dance floor hopping and a huge patio was used for events like the bouquet and garter tosses. When darkness settled, the bride and groom led their guests out to the patio for the highlight of the evening – a fireworks display. Then the energetic couple took to the dance floor. At the end of the night, the bride and groom escaped to their waiting limo and drove off into their future.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
That little breeze during the ceremony, which lifted the bride’s veil and frolicked in the roses, could have also ruined the audio portion of Melissa and Brian’s video. That’s the reason LeniCam used more than one audio feed to record the wedding. Weput a mic on the officiant, put a lapel microphone on the groom and also used the microphones on our camera. By editing and mixing these feeds with the video, we were able to minimize the whistling wind and capture the words of Melissa and Brian’s vows.
The gorgeous fireworks display was another portion of the video which required careful editing. It was the most exciting part of the day and many things were happening at once. Adjusting our lenses to capture both the scene on the dark patio and the bright fireworks in the distance required all the experience we’ve gathered over the years. At the same time, we capture the groom’s comments, with the crowd’s appreciative exclamations and the explosions. The results are a beautiful video Melissa and Brian will cherish all the days of their marriage.
