First, can I just say that I think there should be a hora dance at each and every wedding? Seriously. It was so hard for me NOT to be swept into the circle of dancing at Terri & Jake’s joyful Carolina Inn wedding reception. We LOVED filming this part of the event because the excitement and celebration was truly contagious. The entire wedding was that way, really! This was our first time filming a Jewish wedding and we were so intrigued by the various traditions and customs Terri & Jake chose to incorporate into their “Kentucky meets South African” wedding celebration.
Terri’s dad gave an incredibly memorable, and comedic toast and we were so happy to include part of it in this film. One thing he says rings true to us: “Terri doesn’t have friends, Terri only has best friends”. In the short time we’ve known Terri & Jake, we understand this to be true too. Her heart is HUGE and she seemed to find the perfect match in Jake! You two will have a life filled with laughter, no doubt. Thank you for allowing us to capture this incredibly special day in your lives, and for making us feel like your best friends!
As a side note: this was our first time filming a wedding planned by Katie Dunn of La Fete and we loved every minute of working with Katie and her team. She pulled together a gorgeous wedding with a stellar team of wedding creatives (see below!). Thanks, Katie, for all of your hard work and attention to detail.
