Congratulations to Erin + Kyle! Their September wedding was held at the always gorgeous and lush Riverdale Manor. We hope you enjoy watching this fun loving couple dance the night away with their family and friends as much as we do!
Proposal story written by Erin: “There is a place by my dad’s house called Washington Rock that over looks Manhattan. When I was young, my dad would take me there and tell me you could see the whole world from Washington Rock. This has always been a special place to me. One Saturday I woke up and Kyle said we were going on an adventure. Luckily I fell asleep in the car so I was completely surprised when I woke up and we were at Washington Rock. We then walked outside to the rock and that is where Kyle asked me to marry him! It didn’t take very long, but I decided to say yes! :)”

Congratulations to Annette + Matthew! These two are the kind of people you want to hang out with. They’re silly and playful with the perfect blend of serious and sentimental. We’re honored to have been apart of their wedding day and to have captured their gorgeous Philly wedding on film!
Proposal story written by Annette: “Matt proposed at my work office at the Navy Yard. I was ‘helping out’ with a Instagram photoshoot for BHLHN, a sister brand of the company I work for, Anthropologie. We were in a courtyard on our corporate campus taking photos. Matt came out from a side door with flowers, totally surprising me. After he proposed, we walked back into the building and both our families and a bunch of my co-workers were waiting inside and surprised us with champagne.”

This wedding was particularly special to Lavon Films. Not only did Derek and Aaron get to travel to Florida to film the wedding, but their childhood friend, Blake, was the groom!
This couple has some serious moves – from a choreographed first dance that turned into a full on bridal party dance party to the father/daughter dance that included guitar solos to a mother/son dance that was executed perfectly. Enjoy this peak into their Floridian wedding with some serious country flair!

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.

Katie & Brent define young love. Their smiles were always present- even when it began to drizzle! Katie had her bridesmaids in vibrant coral dresses, while Brent had his groomsmen in casual plaid button ups, with baby blue blazers. It was the perfect combination. Over all, this wedding was beautiful and the couple had put a laid-back spin on their wedding reception dancing under the vintage string lights.
Below is their wedding short film, and a few precious photos of Katie & Brent taken by Jeremy Hess Photography :
Looking back at this, our favorite part about this video is how much it reminds us of summer!

We’ve noticed that many brides and grooms have been contimplating whether or not they want to hire a videographer to capture their wedding day. Think of it this way- at the end or the day, or after your wedding day, do you really want to regret not hiring one? Maybe you didn’t quite get see and experience everything that happened on your special day. Well, with a videographer, those moments won’t be lost. Check out these rants and raves from past brides and grooms who have regret that didn’t hire a videographer – HERE
Coming in 2014, we will be offering clients the experience to showcase their wedding day with a Film Premiere to friends and family.
Prior to arrival, we roll out the glamorous red carpet, prepare drinks, snacks, and we can’t forget about the popcorn, for guests to enjoy the experience and have a great time re-living the wedding day.
In September, we had the privilege of filming the wedding of Lauren & Bryan. Love and excitement shone bright on their faces as this couple got ready for the ceremony. Lauren & Bryan were all smiles from their first look to dancing late into the night.
It is always such a joy to share these precious moments of a couples’ wedding day with them – capturing the looks, nerves, and laughter on film to be cherished forever. One moment that will never be forgotten is the pouring rain upon the couple during their wedding vows. Right out of a romantic movie, the bride and groom giggled as the shower surrounded their ceremony. It’s moments like these that we want to play again and again.
