Samantha called me a few weeks out from her wedding – deciding last-minute that they wanted a videographer. Two things had me pretty instantly sold: Jennefer Wilson Photography and Stoneleigh Hotel. We’ve done a few weddings with Jennefer now – including one in Jamaica – and she’s just always a treat to work with. And we love shooting at the Stoneleigh. I have daydreams that I live in the top floor – it has so much character and charm, and I adore the way each room has a completely different look and feel.
What I didn’t know is how much I was going to get attached to Samantha and Matthew. They are both quiet and gentle, yet so sweet to each other – and both just filled with such integrity. I love the way Matthew looks at Samantha, and the way he carefully watches out for her – it’s so cute. And when your husband surprises you with Christian Louboutin heels on your wedding day, you know you’ve chosen well! Could not be more honored Matthew and Samantha asked us to film their wedding.
Every wedding comes with a little surprise for us and at this one it was a confident teenager. I have been asked to dance at weddings, and I have been the videographer at weddings – but those two things have never overlapped until Samantha’s little brother asked me to dance at the reception. Well, I wasn’t quite sure how to respond to that, but I politely obliged and he was a very nice dancer.
