Guatemalan coffee, culture, and latin american dancing combined with world class, orchestral music and gentle-hearted folks equals an incredible weekend in the NC Mountains for this wedding! The loved ones surrounding Edwin and Merideth on their wedding day inspired and warmed our hearts. The cool breeze of the crisp NC mountain air was a welcome refreshment as we strolled the historic grounds of Montreat.

This was no ordinary wedding. Two cultures came together to share love, laughter, and tears. Merideth’s passion for music manifest itself throughout the entire wedding day. First an incredible prelude featuring the incredible Nicholas Daniel, who flew all the way from the UK to take part in Merideth’s wedding day. Following the ceremony, the energetic and celebratory songs of Voices of Deliverance shouted out through the mountain tops to boast of the joining of this new couple. Then the reception was kicked off with a latin jazz band who got the entire crowd dancing to the rhythm of their latin dance beats.

Our favorite part of this amazing day was most definitely the location. We feel on top of the world at mountain weddings and the surrounding scenery is beauty for our rolling cameras to endlessly capture. We were gifted with a spectacular weekend of weather allowing for some of the most incredible location shots.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sweet sounds of the beauty that is Merideth and Edwin’s wedding day.

Adaumont Wedding Video

**For best viewing experience, press play and then pause immediately and allow the video to load fully.**

Lindsay and David were married on a gorgeous spring day at Adaumont Farms in Trinity, NC. Our Triad wedding video team was honored to capture not only their wedding day, but also their rehearsal dinner as well. The rehearsal dinner was held near the groom’s cabin at Adaumont Farm, with guests in the shelter and relaxing on the lawn. Family and friends made this occasion one to remember with heartfelt toasts and love.

Lindsay and David’s wedding day was a true North Carolina spring day, with an amazing breeze and bright, Carolina blue skies. The bridesmaids assisted Lindsay in getting ready, but also helped create an exciting tone for her wedding day. Our Triad wedding video team was with Lindsay for the entire duration of her preparation, and captured all the fun everyone was having. One of our favorite moments was feeding a random turtle that had wondered under the shelter some peppers and pineapples. Hehe!

David opted to get ready in the main barn at Adaumont Farms, with his groomsmen. David was excited, but focused on seeing Lindsay for the first time during the ceremony. With three cameras ready to film, our Triad wedding video team captured all the intense moment with Lindsay and David first saw one another on their wedding day. The love these two have for each other is effortless, yet deep.

The floral and design work at Lindsay and David’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Our Triad wedding video team filmed every last detail of the stunning design work that was done for the couple. The ceremony was embellished with some of the most gorgeous floral decor we’ve seen, and the reception…well, you’ll have to see that for yourself. Given that the officiants had a special relationship with the bride and groom, it made their role in their ceremony even more meaningful.

All in all, Lindsay and David had a magical wedding weekend at Adaumont Farms in Trinity, NC. Our Triad wedding video team was so honored to capture the entire event, and we are even more excited to share their day with you.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Leslie + Punit

Rock Springs Wedding Same Day Edit

**For best viewing experience, press play and then pause immediately and allow the video to load fully.**

Epicness…

When Leslie contacted me about filming her and Punit's wedding, I knew we would be in for a real treat. Leslie is from a cuban background and Punit is from an Indian background. Their love is undeniable and as Leslie eloquently put it, "God, gave me the man that I realistically needed" to fulfill all her hopes and dreams.

The weekend began with an energetic and extremely fun kickoff at the Friday evening Sangeet. Neil Desai and DJ Magic Mike rocked the party to get everyone dancing and on their feet.

Saturday kicked off with a gorgeous outdoor Christian ceremony under the lovely Gazebo at Rock Springs Center. The decor was splendid and the guests were conveniently carted via a brigade of golf carts. Even our team threw all our equipment on and took a ride, sooo nice! After the Christian ceremony, guest went off to relax and await the Baarat. During this cocktail hour guests got to enjoy delicious food ranging from Cuban cuisine to Indian cooking and even fresh sushi chefs.

Enter the horse. Punit mounted up the horse and began processing during the Baarat to greet the Chavez family. This is absolutely one of my favorite parts of all Indian weddings. Guests are invited to dance and celebrate to bring in the arrival of the groom to the new family. Neil Desai jammed out on the Dhol while Punit's brother got the crowd pumped with ceremonial dancing and chants. So much fun! After a beautiful and sentimental (read as misty eyes) exchange of garlands between aunts, uncles, grandparents, and parents, the groom was ready to see his beautiful bride decked out in traditional Punjabi garb. The amount of symbolism and ceremonies throughout the Hindu ceremony is gorgeous and it always helps when the priest is a jokester.

Finally, the reception. Wow! The decorations and energy at the reception were spectacular to say the least. Incredible furniture, lighting, decor, and linens graced the halls of Rock Springs Center. This was truly a magical setup. Leslie and Punit had professional Bhangra dancers to entertain, tons of delicious food and cocktails, but most importantly family were all able to share in this great joining together.

Now for our end of things:

We were exhilarated to not only shoot all of these events while capturing every last detail, but we also put together the Same Day Edit seen here to showcase during the reception. This is certainly no easy task and it would have been impossible without the help of all the incredible vendors. Santy Martinez was a joy to work with and he and his team made is easy to capture all the great moments. Amanda rocked it on keeping me on task and I would be remiss if I didn't take a second to brag about our editor/filmmaker, Emily. Emily is a gem, she is fantastic at capturing all the moments and put together the edit in record timing. She does all this with a smile on her face and simply replies after the edit is complete with "that was exhilarating." Thank you Emily for all you do and for allowing JBF to be as great as we are today!

Congrats Leslie and Punit! We cannot wait to see what life brings to you and to showcase your Feature Film.

Maredith + Andrew

Graylyn Wedding Video

**For best viewing experience, press play and then pause immediately and allow the video to load fully.**

Maredith and Andrew celebrated their marriage late-December last year, at the beautiful Graylyn Estate in Winston Salem. Maredith is such a stunning bride, with a classic elegance about her. All during her preparations, she was collected, but ready to see Andrew for their first-look at the Graylyn Estate. Our Graylyn wedding video team was ready to capture everything during her preparations, from makeup to hair- we had her covered. Our Winston Salem videographer was inspired by all the reflections, lighting and dramatic setting of the beautiful Graylyn Estate, which all came together beautifully for their Graylyn wedding video.

Interacting with Andrew during his preparations was a ton of fun. All of his groomsmen and himself were light-hearted, joking and quick-witted, which made for interesting and enjoyable footage. Some things our video team loved was Andrew’s octopus cuff links and how Andrew loaded up on Red Bull to prep for one of his best days yet. Before we knew it, it was time for the first-look.

Before Maredith and Andrew had their first look, Maredith and her father shared an incredibly sweet first look together. As you can imagine, it is sometimes hard for us to hold back our own tears during such a sweet moment between father and daughter. Everyone dried up their tears and went onward to the bride and groom first-look at the beautiful Graylyn Estate. Unlike the emotional first look with Maredith’s father, the first look between bride and groom was one to relieve tensions, anxieties and enjoy a relaxing moment together before the official ceremony.

Being a Winston Salem videographer, we get to experience tons of special days like the one Maredith and Andrew had, but this couple truly is special to us. Their Graylyn wedding video captured so beautifully, and the words/moments that were shared paired up perfectly with our images. One of our favorite things about this couple is their range of love for one another. You will see various clips of happy, emotional, and joyful love between Maredith and Andrew. We love that they shared their love openly for all of us to witness and enjoy. Our Winston Salem videographer team feels honored to capture all the special moments of their day, and to be able to put them all together in their enchanting film.

Congratulations to the happy couple, Maredith and Andrew!

Krystyn + Thomas

Renaissance Hotel Raleigh Wedding Video

**For best viewing experience, press play and then pause immediately and allow the video to load fully.**

Krystyn’s dream was to always get married on the 4th of July and have fireworks. Close enough!

Krystyn and Thomas got married at the gorgeous Renaissance Hotel in Raleigh, NC on the 4th of July. Of course being smack dab in the middle of downtown Raleigh, there were no fireworks that they could set off. However, we got to experience the beautiful, explosive love between Krystyn and Thomas. (Cue emotional fireworks) Krystyn’s mother poured out her heart in front of us all to let Krystyn know just how special their relationship has been. This was a major tear-jerker moment and I am thankful I had a camera to hide behind.

The glitz, the glam, and surrounding gorgeousness was amazing! We absolutely loved how they had chosen bold colors and accented with sparkles everywhere. The decor truly popped everywhere you looked. One especially stunning detail was Krystyn’s dual dresses. She had two absolutely amazing dresses to sport throughout the day and Thomas basically had to pick up his jaw off the floor.

One of the best things about being a Raleigh Wedding Videographer is all the amazing vendors that Raleigh has to offer. Arielle White with Creative Purposes was absolutely fantastic to work with. She and her entire team kept things running smoothly and we could not have been happier to have worked with them. And of course we have to give a shout out to Tiwa Lawrence who is basically the best makeup artist and sweetest person we know. Hugs!

Thanks for checking out this wedding and if you like what you see, contact us, or just keep browsing a loving on our site.
