Whitney and Dave at Dallas’ St. Pius X Catholic Church in Videography Wedding Dallas
Before Whitney and Dave had their wedding ceremony at St. Pius Catholic Church they shared a few moments together in a touching First Look. The beautiful Whitey chose that time to give Dave a sweet gift which expressed her love in words she had written for him. The gift brought them both to tears.
Whitney looked lovely in her beautiful ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and empire waist. The fitted bodice of shirred satin was gathered into a bouquet of silk flowers. The bride wore a cathedral length white veil.
The church’s unique contemporary styling and beautiful stained glass window provided a magnificent backdrop for the wedding. After the ceremony the wedding party stayed behind for photographs. During the session Berrett Photography asked the flower girl to hold hands with the ring bearer, but she was reluctant to do so. The little guy put on a big smile and his touch was so gentle that he earned a hug.
The reception was decorated in brown and turquoise. The brown matched the guys’ tuxedos and the turquoise echoed the bridesmaids’ one-shouldered dresses. The cutting of the cake was followed by several heartfelt toasts from family and friends. When the dj invited the guests to the dance floor for line dancing, the wait staff took a break to do some line dancing in the kitchen.
At the end of the evening the bride raised her bouquet in a fond farewell to the guests who lit the way to the couple’s car with sparklers.
Behind the Scenes with LeniCam Video Productions
Capturing the words of the couple’s vows as they are being made is one of our most important jobs at a wedding. To help get it right, we put a lavalier microphone on the groom’s lapel. It’s a good thing we did, because as Dave promised to love until death separated him from his bride, his voice got softer and softer with each phrase.
We also like to record the expressions of the bride as she listens to her groom’s vows and makes her own. In a church like St. Pius with minimal décor there is nowhere for the videographer to hide. That’s why we developed a special camera just for the situation. We’re able to put the tripod out of the line of sight and lift the camera up high. Then the cameraman actually sits at the back of the church watching a monitor and uses remote control to manipulate the camera. We get our shot and there’s no videographer at the front of the church to distract the congregation.
