Inspiration to Reality: The Film
January 28, 2011

You are going to be glad you stuck around because we have a treat for you as you head off into the weekend.  Life Stage Films put together one of the most moving, striking documentations of a wedding I have ever seen.  It may be a photo shoot but there is something so organic and soft it just pulls at my heart strings and makes me want to get married all over again!

Go to the full gallery to see all the photos from this beautiful shoot!

I can't take any of the credit for the design, but with that said, ANY film or wedding that we get to work with Salt Harbor Designs, our films always stand out. I can't speak for Jenn at Salt Harbor, but she felt like a winter shoot would be a great resource for brides that are having stylish weddings outside of the normal wedding season. I LOVEd the eclectic feeling of the Brooklyn Arts Center. The feathers, earth-tone colors and especially the wardrobe of the bride and groom really shouted STYLE. The Arts center is over 100 years old, so the brick, candlelight and wood really created a vintage feel.

Although the use of the real baby Quails was very romantic, my favorite part of the film is the "foot washing" ceremony. A biblical reference, but it's still one of the most SELFLESS acts you could do for somebody regardless of your religious beliefs. It is the perfect example of serving your mate and putting them before yourself. We have seen it at a few Southern weddings in NC. It truly felt like a dream sequence when the groom washed the bride's feet.
