So James and I have officially decided to try our hand at blogging. (It’s about time, right?) We’ve always been so apprehensive because in a strange way we sometimes think blogs can seem impersonal. But then again not doing a blog is very impersonal. So we saw a flaw in our logic. With all that being said, our goal is to create a blog that is personal… but not too personal… not like scary personal. Just the perfect amount of personal.
That being said it just felt right to start off our blogging journey with Shannon and Ryan’s Preview Film.

What we loved most about creating their wedding film: Shannon and Ryan wrote incredibly heartfelt vows. For us those vows encompassed the joy of everything that unfolded on their wedding day. It especially resonated in the way the two of them looked at each other during their first dance. We loved that for the weeks we spent editing the couple's wedding film their song was stuck in our heads….”and you belong to me, not swallowed in the sea!”
A bit of wisdom from the wedding: We love outdoor weddings! We just feel more alive when we are outdoors, but we all know that enjoying the outdoors also means braving the weather. Shannon and Ryan were married on a beautifully hot day! To combat the heat they had a lemonade and water stand set up near the ceremony site. While their guests waited for the bride's grand entrance they were also able to stay hydrated. Thumbs up for thoughtfulness!
While we were editing: The old farm house desperately needed new windows so James and I had the wonderful opportunity to practice editing in the middle of a construction zone. Seriously, there were times when I felt like we were on some strange HGTV reality show. But we were blessed with a great carpenter who helped us through the disappointing news of water damage in our bathroom and in the end we all survived! We learned a lot along the way. And in a surprising turn of events, I think I might actually be up for a few more renovation projects.
