Megan & Randy Excerpt

Wow, I can't even begin to say how much I loved this wedding. The vintage black and white theme was flawlessly executed from beginning to end, from invitations to dresses to centerpieces to decor. Megan's custom handmade gown was inspired by a dress Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie Sabrina, and she looked fabulous in it. Instead of carrying bouquets, the bridesmaids (with their white little gloves) carried vintage purses adorned with pink peonies. And instead of baskets, the flower girls tossed their petals from little black clutches. Adorable! And there were so many meaningful details everywhere. Megan wore her grandmother's gloves that she wore on her wedding day decades ago, and carried a handkerchief that was originally embroidered with her grandmother's initials, and then later Megan's. Randy's boutonierre had a key charm dangling from it while Megan's bouquet featured a small locket. The reception centerpieces (see below) contained numerous items from Megan's aunt's own wedding, such as the ring pillow and cake topper.

Because Megan and Randy decided to see each other before the ceremony, I was able to capture some fun and relaxed footage of their first glimpse and photo session. It was a beautiful clear day and I enjoyed being outside and taking advantage of the bright sun and light breeze.

And just so you can see how much thought and time went into the decorations for this event, here is a short pre-reception excerpt. I wish you could see the whole video, but this gives you a little taste.
