While the ceremony is the more serious and symbolic part of the wedding day, sometimes we don’t realize that a wedding reception can be just as meaningful and moving. The stories and words of affirmation shared by parents, siblings and friends. The smiles, hugs and laughs as the couple chats with friends and family from home and far away. The groom lovingly embracing his bride as they share their first dance. The proud look on the father-of-the-bride’s face while dancing with his daughter. Grandparents cutting away on the dance floor. I’ve teared up at just as many receptions as I have ceremonies (and I’m not really a “crier”).
Editing together couples’ receptions is also one of the most fun parts of the process . . .especially when there is dancing involved! It’s so great to see guests of all ages just letting loose and celebrating the day. Click on the image below to see a highlight of Austin & Hannah’s gorgeous candle-lit reception.
This highlight is set to the song “Fling Wide” featuring Austin! The song comes from the new Shady Grove Worship cd Step Inside Here.
