Gladys and Paul at The Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Videography Wedding Dallas
Just before the lovely Gladys arrived at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadelupe in Downtown Dallas via white stretch limousine, Paul confessed, “She’s genuine. I love that. You can’t find that anywhere else.” His smile, as she came down the aisle, filled in the details.
Gladys’ white satin gown with a sheer overlay encrusted with crystals ended in a long train. Her tulle veil, also crystal-trimmed, was the same length as the gown’s train. For the ceremony she wore a lace-trimmed sheer jacket with embroidered short sleeves. Her bridesmaids wore short turquoise dresses with crossover bodices.
The couple incorporated a lasso communion ceremony into their wedding, during which honored guests bound them with a beautiful rope of crystals. Sincerity was in both the bride’s and the groom’s eyes as they said their vows. Over the bride’s shoulder you see the stunning colors of the cathedral’s stained glass windows. Outside, after the ceremony, the couple stopped at the top of the steps, so the groom could deliver an enthusiastic, bride-dipping kiss.
The bride shed her sheer jacket for the reception. As she entered the Addison Event Center on the arm of her new husband her guests could see more of her splendid gown including, intricate beading and a crystal halter strap.
The wedding cake was a white confection of icing-formed petals amid large crystals. The chocolate groom’s cake was made to look like a football helmet. Guests could also enjoy a buffet of sweets; treats like colorfully striped canes, bright jelly beans and pastel mints in be-ribboned crystal jars.
During the fun-filled reception, the groomsmen dressed the groom in an apron and delivered his clothes to the bride, joking that he would soon be hen-pecked. The lively groom, back in his own clothes, showed he wasn’t hen-pecked yet, when he used his teeth to remove the bride’s garter. Conga lines wove around the dance floor. Glowsticks lighted up the night.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
Gladys and Paul chose to use three cameras for their wedding and with all the decorations and columns in the cathedral, it was a wise decision. Having three vantage points allowed the camera to record the couple together at the altar and to see both the bride’s and the groom’s faces during their vows.
There were also two cameras during the reception – one to keep an eye on the bride and groom, while the other roamed the Addison Event Center, capturing the action in other parts of the room.
We sweat the small stuff, so you don’t have to.
What Gladys Said on The Knot:
“It felt good not to have to micromanage at least one of my vendors on my wedding day. LeniCam was that vendor for me. Let John know what is important to you to be captured on your day and it will happen. I barely even knew he and his crew were there, they were so professional and prepared.
After our wedding my husband and I were surprised by a series of unforeseen events which put our wedding on the back burner for several months. So we had no time to see any video footage or pictures, send thank you cards, even open our gifts! John was so courteous and accommodating with us and gave us as much time as needed to be in a good place to review our video and make all my extremely detailed video editing requests. This alone meant so much to us.
I would very much recommend LeniCam to everyone. ”
