Michelle and Paul – Dallas World Aquarium hosts West End Wedding in Wedding Video Dallas TX
There was something decidedly fishy about Michelle and Paul’s wedding. It took place in front of a huge tank of tropical specimens at the Dallas World Aquarium in West End.
The bride and groom were first introduced at a Yummilicious yogurt store by a pair of doctors they knew. The prescription was right for the beginning of a delicious relationship. Brian was smitten, so he pursued Michelle until, according to him, he “finally wore her down.”
The beautiful Michelle looked stunning on her wedding day. Her strapless white satin gown featured a sweetheart bodice covered in crystals, which trailed along the low backline to the corset closing. The bridesmaids wore short strapless dresses of deep burgundy. The fall colors of the bridal party’s bouquets were echoed by elaborate floral displays for the ceremony.
The couples wrote their vows for one another, listing all the things they loved about one another. Some of the items listed were pretty funny, but afterwards there wasn’t a dry eye among their guests. After the ceremony the wedding party posed for a series of formal portraits. With all the birds flying around the aquarium/zoo/conservatory the bride hoped drops of moisture hitting her skin came from the waterfall, not the wildlife.
At the reception the guests had plenty to keep them busy. Dinner and dessert were served buffet style. The dj kept the dance floor hopping all night long. Nearby a photo booth offered an array of crazy props for hamming it up. If a guest needed a break, they could just sit down and watch a slideshow of photos from the couple’s courtship.
If it’s true that the guests who catch the bouquet and garter are the next to get married, none of Michelle and Paul’s single friends will be getting married anytime soon. The flower girl and ring-bearer who caught the bouquet and garter are a little young to start considering marriage. At the end of the evening the bride and groom escaped through a swirl of bubbles.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
Lighting is tricky in an aquarium. The ambient light is left low, so the light in the tanks can show off the fish. Meanwhile, our cameras needed light to show off the bride and groom. Our videocameras do have lights on them and we are able to adjust the lenses. Also the glass tanks reflect light, causing another hazard for our videographers. Despite the venue’s lighting, everything in the video is easy to see thanks to our constant setting and resetting on the fly.
Sounds are also important to a video and capturing them in the wide open spaces of the aquarium with its wildlife and waterfalls required our expertise. One of the strategies we used to get clear sound on the video was employing a variety of audio feeds. We needed to clearly capture every word that was spoken during the vows. We also wanted to include the charming ambient sounds of the waterfalls and wildlife. We just didn’t want the ambient sound to overpower the words. By editing and mixing the audio in our studio, we created a perfect soundtrack to the video.
Since weddings are a one-shot opportunity without do-overs, LeniCam always brings back-ups for our equipment and back-ups for our back-ups. As the dj was setting up, he discovered he’d left one of his microphones behind. Because of our planned redundancy we were able to loan him one of our.
