Samantha & James : The Ceremony : Durham, NC

We love the rich symbolism of a New Year’s Eve wedding: new commitments tied to new dreams and beginnings. Neither Philip nor I had been to a wedding on NYE, much less filmed one! We loved this tradition and we hope it will continue in the years to come! Samantha has coincidentally made “cameo appearances” in two of our previous films, one for Reality Ministries and our mutual friends’ documentary about love so we were thrilled to finally have her as the “star”! Having known James and his family for over a decade, it was incredibly meaningful to be a part of their wedding day. Sadly, we will miss these two in Durham- they left North Carolina for Austin, TX in a moving truck shortly after their wedding. Thank you, Samantha and James for being such a lovely couple to know and of course, to film!

And another first: we were really lucky to meet and work next to award-winning (and uber-friendly!) photographer Christobal Perez from Azul Photography. Thanks Chris!
