Kate + Nick | Riverdale Manor

Congratulations to Kate + Nick! It was truly the prefect day for a wedding at the stunning Riverdale Manor!

Engagement story: This gorgeous couple started their journey to wedded bliss when Nick proposed to Kate at the top of a bridge over the St. Lawrence River on a perfect fall day in October. Afterwards, they drove to a park and shared a beer on the tailgate of his truck before telling anyone. Well done Nick!

Melissa + Shane | Grimmel Farms

Melissa + Shane both come from farming and ranching backgrounds, and their wedding reflected this is the most stunning way. Set at Melissa’s family farm with Hereford cattle grazing in the pasture, guests traveled from across the country to witness this couple tie the knot. Melissa’s generous spirit and Shane’s kind nature were reflected in their choice of party favors: donations to the farmers and ranchers affected by wildfires out west. Our favorite parts of the day? The couple’s tractor ride and their two Australian Shepherds, Sage and Skye, walking down the isle in adorable flower collars!

Fun fact: We also had the pleasure of filming Melissa’s sister’s wedding a few years back! Watch it here: Michelle + Jacob.

Chrysanthi + Teddy, The Marriot | Lancaster

Chrysanthi and Teddy were married at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Lancaster. The Byzantine-style church was decorated to suit their wedding day with fresh white flower petals sprinkled on the isle to guide both bride and groom to the alter for elopement. The couple then celebrated with friends and family members during the reception which was held at the Marriot at Penn Square in Lancaster.

Both bride and groom were in a cheerful and humorous spirit, which made the day enjoyable for all. We love how the short film turned out!

The Beauty of Aerial Shots – Moonstone Manor, Elizabethtown

Recently, we discovered the beauty of aerial shots and how important these shots are in creating a sense of place in all of our films. Aerial shots can provide breathtaking views to showcase any venues. They are perfect for trying to catch all of your venue, especially for golf courses, farms, fields, businesses, outdoor venues, events and landscapes.

Located in Elizabethtown, Pa., Moonstone Manor hired Lavon Films to film a promotional video for them each season of the year. Below is a video featuring aerial shots of the venue during the autumn season. Stay tuned for footage of Moonstone Manor during the winter, spring, and summer seasons!

Lilly & Nick, Wedding Short Film, Riverdale Manor

This wedding was one to remember! Both Lilly and Nick are so sweet to each other, you can tell the attraction between the two immediately.

Lilly and Nick are both professional actors, and Nick thought of the most adorable way to propose. He set up a staged, fake audition, and made sure that Lilly would try out for her part. Little did Lilly know, that she was about to be surprised with a proposal. She said yes!

Nick is currently on the national tour of the Broadway show “War Horse.” This year they are spending their lives traveling around the U.S.

One of the special moments we loved was when Lilly performed the song she had written for Nick. We also loved how the couple embraced the weather at the end of the day.

Ann & Paul’s Wedding Short Film, Marriott, Penn Square, Lancaster

 

Ann and Paul were a delightful couple to be around through out the day. Ann was always laughing and being a joyful spirit. Despite the fact that Ann’s veil was not with her wedding dress the morning of the wedding, she still remained calm. Their wedding ceremony took place at St. Anthony  of Padua Catholic Church and the reception was held at the Marriott at Penn Square in the Heritage Ballroom. Both Ann and Paul were a beautiful site to see as they walked around the Square in Downtown Lancaster.

 

We have posted a few pictures from their beautiful wedding day below from Tennison Photography. Enjoy!
