Classic Weddings

I can't think of anything I love more than seeing a sweet, sweet wedding film pop up on my computer screen, especially when that fab film is coming to us straight from the geniuses at Diva Productions. Yep, these talented cinematographers are serious masters at capturing those oh-so-special moments - and today's Tallahassee affair is absolute perfection with a could.not.be.cuter bride and groom and bundles upon bundles of HAPPY.  All wrapped up in 5 minutes of pure melodic bliss, believe you me, this is one film you'll be watching time and time again.

Oh, and we're not done yet.  These breathtaking images captured by Kay Meyer Photography are about to add even more sweetness to your Tuesday. Enjoy!

From the Bride... Brett and I knew each other in high school, but we met again the summer before I started law school. I was going out one night and meeting up with my cousin, who brought some friends along — Brett included. After that, we started dating and have been together ever since. As far as the proposal: It was around Thanksgiving during my last year in law school.  I had finals coming up, so I was completely engulfed in studying. Brett had invited me out to his parent's house for an early Thanksgiving dinner since his sister was in town. So, reluctantly taking a break from studying, I went to his parents' for dinner. We were all sitting out on the back porch, drinking wine, when Brett dropped to one knee and proposed in front of his family and my family. As soon as I said yes, fireworks lit the sky out on their property.

The wedding ceremony was at Trinity United Methodist Church. I grew up in the church, so it was a no-brainer that we would get married there. The reception was held at Mission San Luis. We fell in love with this venue because of the Spanish-style architecture and the beautiful courtyard. I studied abroad in Spain for a semester while in college, so having the reception at an old Spanish Mission was perfect. We did not really have an "inspiration" for the wedding. We just wanted a nice mix of traditional and classic styles that reflected the season, so we decided to use dark purples with light green and silver. The colors were taken from the colors of a green cymbidium orchid. The garter that I worse was made from the McDonald tartan (my maiden name) — it is our Scottish family tartan. Also during the reception, Brett surprised me by playing a song from my favorite band: the Beatles. He played the song with one of the other members from his local band. It all went by so quickly, but we loved every minute of it. All of the photos turned out fantastic, but we especially love the ones of all of the wedding party under the arches. The sneak peek video is also wonderful! The fireworks are great! Brett and I are both musicians so our wedding favors were chocolate music notes.
