Pennylane Productions: Chic Elegance At The Breakers
April 30, 2011

Abby and I have something important to say to you today. Seriously important, so listen up! There WILL be moments throughout your wedding weekend that you will remember forever. There will be MORE moments, though, that you wish you could hear again and again and again. When Abby got married, some of those moments were at her rehearsal dinner. SO many of her and Tait's closest friends and family members got up and said some of THE most endearing things you've ever heard. Even her feisty nana put her two cents in. And of course her father ... her always charming, always eloquent father brought everyone to tears! But we didn't have our cinematographer there until the wedding day. So we don't have those speeches and those funny moments to hear again. Take a tip from one mom (me) who really really wishes we had filmed the rehearsal dinner in addition to the wedding day. Take another tip from Adam at Pennylane Productions ~ as you'll see in today's featured Same Day Edit! The rehearsal dinner is an incredible time to capture once-in-a-lifetime memories ...  don't let the opportunity pass you by!

The Breakers Wedding Reception

Michelle and Justin got married on February 26, 2011. We filmed their rehearsal dinner and were able to use some of the stories in our Same Day Edit. The cake ~ a mind blowing piece of art ~ was delivered, personally by Sylvia Weinstock. We were so excited to meet her!

This was the first time we'd filmed at The Breakers in Palm Beach ~ couldn't have asked for a more beautiful weekend! Michelle and Justin had an incredible team of wedding vendors that made our part of the story a dream. And The Breakers? Utopia!  Our good friend, award-winning Anthony Vazquez shot this stunning wedding (he had just been honored with "THE NEXT" award at WPPI in Las Vegas).  You can see more of his amazing images on Justin and Michelle's slideshow.

One really unique thing that Justin and Michelle had at their wedding reception was to have a live event artist, Agnes Russo. The Breakers Blog shows the incredible progression of her work AND the finished painting from their wedding!!

So ..... think about it. Don't leave those special toasts and words of wisdom to your own memory ~ get them on film!

Our congratulations to Pennylane Productions for being honored, once again, as one of the TOP 25 Filmmakers by Event DV!  See more examples of their terrific films over on Pennylane Productions' blog {+ see Michelle and Justin's  champagne-slinging E*Shoot with Anthony Vazquez}.
