Brooke & Matt's Trailer

What a blast this wedding was! The events took place in Fort Worth, with the reception downtown on the rooftop of the Reata. I loved the theme of the wedding, sort of cowboy meets preppy. The adorable dresses were from J Crew, and they had pockets in them, even the bride's. Brooke looked totally classic and timeless. Her dress and accessories and hairdo were clean and simple, and it all made a great backdrop for her striking beauty. For the reception, everyone changed into cowboy boots and the girls donned these super cute chunky necklaces.

I enjoyed filming this wedding partly because Brooke is one of those brides that just "gets" video. She was so excited to have me there documenting everything, and that only made me more excited. And Matt, he's such a softie. It seemed like every time I looked at him he had tears in his eyes. What a sweetie!

Another thing I liked about this wedding was the band. They didn't have just any wedding band, they had a personal concert by cult favorite Max Stalling, a great musician who also happens to be their family friend. Max has great charisma and sweetness, and no cheese whatsoever. People were singing along to his songs all night and having a grand old time, despite the rain that tried to put a damper on things.

Check out their "urban cowboy" trailer that we just finished editing:

Brooke said, "I love it!!! Love it times infinity plus one! It really captured how much FUN we were all having. Thanks so much to you and Brent for working your butts of to get the trailer to us so quickly...can't wait for the rest. Super great song by the way! I had never heard of the band but I think I have become a Magnetic Zero fan :-) "

Wow, this was a clever yet artistic interpretation of the footage and music. Vanessa, it reminds me of your fun-loving way of seeing things. I can see why the bride likes it so much...totally unique!
