Chapel Hill Wedding Film from Life Stage Films
March 24, 2012
We have officially danced our way into spring, with beautiful weddings at our side the whole way through winter. And in honor of the changing of the seasons, we have saved a highlight film, sent to us from Life Stage Films, that is guaranteed to make your spring day so much warmer and more cheerful. The wedding between these two deserving people is so beautiful, I can say with absolute certainty that there won't be a dry eye out there after watching this film!
From the bride ... July 22nd was the happiest and most perfect day of my life. I can  officially call myself Mrs. Chapman and it is the best feeling in the  world. Chris has been there since the beginning but now we continue  with my recovery as husband and wife. Since the wedding a lot has happened including a 3 week stay at Project Walk in California. An  amazing organization called Walking with Anthony heard my story and  offered to fund my rehab. While in therapy they worked me hard to  improve my arm strength, core strength and my sitting balance. My mom  made the trip with me since Chris had to teach but he was able to  visit and he learned how to facilitate my exercises. I got SO much  stronger while I was there and we continue to work on it at home. Ill  also be learning to drive soon and in February I'll have another stay  at project walk! It's all about getting stronger and ultimately to be  independent! Chris and I hate being apart but we are so grateful for  the therapy. He's my other half and I'm just as in love with him as I  was years ago. Married life is one very special gift.
From Life Stage Films ... Rachelle and Chris got married in Chapel Hill last year; a year after  their wedding was originally planned. Rachelle and Chris' story is such an inspiring one. After getting pushed into a pool by her bridesmaid on her bachelorette weekend, Rachelle was paralyzed from neck down. She has been able to recover in record timing, gaining back most control of her upper body. She continues to work at it every day and, although it won't be easy, she has high hopes of being able to drive in the near future. Throughout her recovery, not once was she bitter towards her friend, overall angry or the slightest bit a bridezilla!

Their film and story is perfect for Style Me Pretty because it gives brides inspiration and encouragement. It is a stressful task planning the perfect wedding. It takes lots of research; a firm budget and months of planning it make everything perfect. Hopefully other brides will be moved by this film and realize that the most important thing about your wedding day is the memories you make with the ones you love.
