Oh boy, we’ve been dying to share this film on our blog since before we even started editing it! When we left Katherine & Eric’s wedding weekend, I called my sister in Maine to tell her how awesome the weekend was. I think I told her, “It was as aesthetically beautiful as it was meaningful and emotional!” Folks, that’s not always easy to achieve. We felt so welcomed by Eric, Katherine and their families. Full disclosure: we got to know many of these fine folks when Katherine’s brother Bryan was married to Megan a few years ago. We filmed their wedding too! So, we knew what kind of heartfelt celebration we were in for!
The weekend began with a Persian ceremony arranged by Eric’s family and was filled to the brim with unique customs and delicacies. It was the perfect kickoff to the weekend, and Katherine & Eric (who have been together since high school!) were “serenaded” by their loved ones through both the ceremony and their toasts: filled with loving words and heartfelt wishes for these two awesome people!
Fast forward to the ceremony, where there was probably not a dry eye in the gorgeous Deerpark lodge room. We truly loved just pointing our cameras at so much joy and love and authenticity. Oh, and beauty. Gosh, THOSE mountains as a backdrop for THAT couple! Words cannot….
The Biltmore and Asheville Event Co. did a phenomenal job of helping Katherine realize her vision for the wedding day. We finally got the chance to shoot with Elizabeth & David of Almond Leaf Studios. These two are incredibly kind and talented and we thoroughly enjoyed shooting alongside them!
