Kate ∞ Tom ~ A Romantic Wedding Filmed in Airlie Gardens, Wilmington, NC

In and amongst the beautiful natural flora of Airlie Gardens lies a very cute little chapel. Saint James Lebanon Chapel is romantically set in a backdrop of pines and ancient oaks strung with spanish moss. Kate and Tom came down to North Carolina from New York City on an amazing fall day to proclaim their love for each other in front of their lovely and supportive families here. These two hold such an obvious and strong intimate connection with each other, that capturing the sweet and emotional moments of their big day was easy for our team. The day began on a lovely afternoon in Wilmington, NC and continued into a romantic evening at Bluewater Grill in Wrightsville Beach where the Shakedown Band kept everyone moving and celebrating through the night. We had a great time being a part of the day, capturing, and recreating the magic of their wedding. We feel very fortunate to get to work with such wonderful couples such as Tom and Kate, and we wish them all the best as well as a lifetime of love and happiness!

Alyssa ∞ Dan ~ Bald Head Island, NC ~ A Little Bit of Bollywood and a Rolls Royce Golf Cart

We often find ourselves wishing we were guests at many of our couple's weddings, because they have the most amazing families and throw the most amazing parties. Alyssa and Dan celebrated their beautiful day on Bald Head Island with a Rolls Royce getaway golf cart and a Bollywood-esque dance party. From the beautiful details of the day to the incredible dancing and laughing by night, these two and their families were a joy to be with. The fun continued back in the editing studio reliving the sweet ceremony and exciting reception. We wish them both the best and a lifetime of love and excitement.

Hong Kong Couple, Zombies, and The Harlem Shake Face

This was a very special 2 day edit we did for a couple that came all the way to North Carolina from Hong Kong to wed and celebrate with their friends and families. They were married here in NC, but had their reception later the same week with their friends in Los Angeles, California. I don't think jetlag was ever a problem for this super fun and super creative couple. The first time they contacted us, they came to us with past projects involving full production ninja/kung fu engagment videos and Guinness Dodgeball leagues. All I can say is this was more fun then I could shake a brain at. I wish I lived in the same town as Christine and Edmund!

Merry Christmas...In Slow Motion!

The best way to capture action in the sports and underwater world is by shooting a super fast frame rate and cranking down to produce a clean slow motion effect. This craze has caught on in the event world as well, which is saturated with photo booths. We're excited to show off our first sample of the Slow Motion Booth...Holiday style! Merry Christmas and enjoy the ridiculousness!

Emily ∞ Pierce in Highlands, North Carolina

This was a very special wedding for us! Wilmington is usually really hot in the summer, but at the end of June we got to escape the heat and humidity to a cooler, drier climate. We have been waiting for a beautiful mountain wedding film since we started Seven Season Films, so we were very excited. My wife Jada and I took advantage of a couple of days away to explore the surrounding waterfalls and the super cute, quaint little town of Highlands, NC. Emily and Pierce's families welcomed us into their celebration like family and we threw everything we had at this one. It was such a lovely ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church and incredible reception at the Farm at Edwards Inn.

Pierce rocked the first dances like no other groom that I've ever seen. This guy was GOOD! Big Blast and the Party Masters took the cake as far as wedding bands go. They knew every song from Katy Perry to the Classics and kept everyone of all ages on their feet all night!

We couldn't have captured so many wonderful shots if it weren't for the other wonderful couple shooting photos along side us. Chris and Katie of 6 Of FOur Photography out of Atlanta were outstanding! We shared quite a few laughs and fumbles together, but in the end it was a blast! Check out some of their amazing images of the wedding by clicking here!

Laura ∞ Matt at Bald Head Island

The beginning of summer was busy time for us. We had so many beautiful weddings in so many different places over such a short period of time. Bald Head Island is one of our favorite local destinations though. Mayb it's just because we get to ride around in golf carts, or maybe because there is just so much natural beauty preserved all around.

Laura and Matt were such a sweet beautiful couple to add to the backdrop. Their welcoming families, warm with the love shared between these two, along with their wonderful friends were so inspiring, encouraging, and supportive throughout the day.

As always we had a great time shooting alongside Theo and Leanne from Theo Milo Photography and watched everything fall perfectly into place thanks to Courtney and the ladies at Kickstand Events!

Without further ado...

Taylor ∞ Chris at Brooklyn Arts Center

It's been really hard to keep this video hiding and not release it for so long, but we are VERY VERY excited to finally reveal one of our biggest and most beautiful wedding films we've done so far...and this is just the highlights!!

Taylor and Chris were so lovely and so in love, with all sides of their family and friends giving them the most amazing support and love in their new journey together. It's so nice to see the friendships and amazing kind words that are expressed to such a wonderful couple. Along with a few fun surprises through out the day the entire event was just one massive celebration and we were so honored to be invited to be a part of it and document it.

With four videographers and creative options for days we really had an amazing day with Taylor and Chris at one of Wilmington, NC's finest wedding venues, The Brooklyn Arts Center at St Andrews.  We also had the pleasure of working with some of Wilmington's best wedding professionals. Charyl at Social Butterfly Events ran a tight ship with every detail laid out, and every part of the day unfolding with ease. Verzaals florist provided beautiful floral arrangements all the way around, Nsalo did an amazing job with the ladies hair and makeup, and Pine Valley Market whipped up some of the most delicious catered food we've had. We were also very excited to be able to shoot alongside our very talented photographer friend, Mr. Theo Milo and his lovely assistant Leanne. The party kept going all night as the Groovetown Band not only rocked the reception, but also provided lovely music during the ceremony and cocktail hour.

We can't say enough good words about this experience, so we won't, just watch and see! :-)
