“Our love story is perfectly imperfect but it’s ours” says this beautiful Bride and we couldn’t agree more. Those love and life stories are often filled with bumps and bruises and what really amazes us is when couples can take on those difficulties and become stronger. And that’s exactly what Cindy and her husband Nick did. They reunited after time apart and Luminance Wedding Films captured all the magic that went down as they renewed their vows. You’ll be one lifelong believer in love after this right here!
From Luminance Wedding Films… “You are my miracle, and I am happy that it is you once again that I get to spend the rest of my life with.” Cindy shared these beautiful words to her husband during their vow renewal session. Their story is one that is very unique and one that we were so honored to be a part of. Cindy and Nick had been married before several years ago. As life sometimes goes, the couple struggled and found themselves going through a divorce a few years later.
After doing a lot of soul searching and finding their faith in God, the couple realized that they were meant for each other and re-connected. Having shared two children together and adopting a third, this family was made whole once again and they were re-married. Not having a video to document this special occasion, the couple approached Luminance Wedding Films to see about creating a vow renewal film. We of course jumped at the chance. Vows are the glue that binds two hearts together. They are what we reflect on when times are tough and when we need a reminder of what we have promised to each other. They see us through the good and the bad times. This film focuses on those important vows and on the strength they found in a life giving and reconciling God.

This Bride dreamed of a snowy wedding and that’s exactly what they got – and much, much more. Infused with a whimsical, vintage vibe, this winter wedding is all romance and love, from the sweet speeches to the beautiful moments between the newlyweds. And lucky for us, Luminance Wedding Films captured it all, complete with a soundtrack that is making us very, very happy this Saturday morning. Sit back, relax and soak it all in :)
From Luminance Wedding Films… The lovely couple that is Melanie and Connor exchanged their vows inside the charming chapel of Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town and danced the night away in the sweet, vintage styled ballroom. Melanie wanted a snowy wedding and her wish came true, as the sky burst open with the most dazzling flakes the night of the rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner took place at The Los Poblanos Organic Inn and Farm where friends and family exchanged their congratulations and heartwarming toasts during a soft candlelit dinner with snow falling outside the window. What a backdrop to this magical evening!
The next morning Melanie slipped on her stunning, vintage beaded gown and topped her look with a fur stole. Connor made for a dapper, handsome groom in his grey colored wool suit. They are truly a couple whose fashion sense rocks that of Old Hollywood Glam. Their winter white wedding was just as gorgeous as this couple. This is a rock solid union and one that will last for all of eternity! Cheers to you both and may you have a thousand more snowy anniversaries!

A sweet southern wedding is pretty much my happy place… and this darling Old Town Farm affair? Giving me all the feels. From the breathtaking barn backdrop to the beyond heartwarming moments (FOB’s toast = happy tears) to the epic dance party with the two steppin’ Bride and Groom. Press play for all of the goodness from Luminance Wedding Films… then press play again.
From Luminance Wedding Films… You just know you are going to get a laid-back couple with sweet romantic vibes, big hearts and the warmest smiles, when you hear that they will be tying the knot on a farm. Meagan and Patrick exceeded that expectation by miles. Their love for horses, two stepping the country and southern charm were apparent in every aspect from the location to the sweet details. Their day was gorgeous with blue skies overhead, a bright warm sun and a pasture full of loving hearted guests, who cried, laughed and cheered the couple on.
The location took place at Old Town Farm Wedding and created the sweet southern background that this couple loves. Two old barns grace the property with the most beautiful pasture. Patrick, the handsome groom, is a general contractor and built the pergola which provided the ultimate romantic setting in which the couple commenced their vows. While the couple snuck away for photos and their cinema session, their guests were kept busy playing lawn games such as corn hole, horse shoes and dingle berry. The warm August evening welcomed guests inside the old Red barn where they kicked up their heels and did some serious two steppin’. Patrick and Meagan, being a mighty fine two steppin’ couple themselves, tore up the dance floor with twirl after twirl. Meagan and her father are both singer/songwriters and so appropriately danced to the song that they co-wrote and sang together. It was a magical event to say the least.
