Stacy and Jeff
Jeff and Stacy at La Cima Club in Las Colinas’ The Towers at Williams Square in Video Wedding Dallas
For Jeff and Stacy, one of the benefits of getting married at La Cima Club was having The Mustangs of Las Colinas as a backdrop for their wedding photos. The view of Dallas from the twenty-sixth floor of The Towers of Williams Square was pretty spectacular, too. As the couple walked into the building after the outdoor photos, Jeff told Stacy, “I don’t know what I did to deserve you, but I’m glad I did it.”
Jeff and Stacy met on Christian Mingle and it doesn’t take long to figure out that Jeff is completely smitten with his bride. He told us she had a heart as big as Texas. “She’s a stunningly beautiful woman, but she’s more beautiful in the inside.”
Stacy was certainly stunningly beautiful in her lace wedding gown. The Queen Anne neckline featured a sheer keyhole back and a row of teeny tiny buttons. Around her slim waist the bride wore a dramatic sash of large silk appliqued roses studded with crystals. Her bridesmaids wore long gowns of blush pink. The bouquets were mixed flowers in shades of pink and white.
As the couple kissed to seal their vows an Austin Powers sound-alike shouted, “Yeah Baby!” and ended the nuptials on a light note. From the ceremony the guests went to the reception a few steps away where the couples entwined initials on the a window created a memorable tableau.
The whole day was a festival of live music. A stringed quartet entertained the guests before the ceremony. A duo performed a song during the wedding. A pianist played as the couple entered the reception.
The wedding cake’s motif echoed the flowers on Stacy’s sash. The cake was covered in butter icing and then decorated with fondant flowers which had crystal centers. The groom’s cake was decorated in black fondant with card suit markings in red and topped with a race horse statue. Every detail of the wedding spoke of excellent taste and a good eye for beauty.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
The jaw-dropping view of La Cima Club made for a gorgeous wedding day and it also demanded skill from our videographers. With the bright sunlight of the June day pouring into the venue, our videographers were constantly setting and resetting their cameras.
Though light was needed to capture details, too much of it washes everything out. After bright shots, if the next frame was in heavy shadow, it required another adjustment to add light to the scene. In well-lit shots , if people were standing in front of a window, more adjustments had to be made to keep them from becoming dark shadows. All these adjustments had to be made on the fly.
The audio kept us busy, too. We hooked up to the audio feed of each musician; put a microphone on the officiant and another on groom. We encouraged the groom to keep his microphone on throughout the evening. We also had microphones on our cameras.
After the ceremony, the wedding party went out to Williams Square for formal portraits with the still photographer. Though experience we’ve discovered this time can be rich with humor and sentiment, so we include a section called “Photo Fun” in our videos. On this particular day, we kept our videocameras rolling, even after the photo shoot was over and that’s how we got Jeff’s comment about what he did to deserve a wife like Stacy.
At the end of the day all these recordings went back to the studio. In the coming weeks we edited and mixed the sounds into the video recordings. The result was a beautiful video that Jeff and Stacy will enjoy throughout their marriage.
