Shannon & Blake Highlights

You may recognize Shannon from another one of our videos- she caught the bouquet at Laura and Greg's wedding! It must have worked because a few years later we found ourselves in Dallas filming Shannon's nuptuals with her longtime boyfriend Blake.

This wedding was fun to document and edit because there was just so much excitement and energy. On her Facebook profile Shannon said that she "loves to laugh" so I was sure to include some of the funny moments of the day. This bride has a great sense of humor and she had me chuckling all during the editing. The little boys were hilarious too; Brent asked them if they wanted to do something special for the video so they choreographed this little rap dance routine, part of which you'll see in the highlights. Every time we see it we crack up. And the dancing at the reception was hilarious too! I didn't have time to show it all in the highlights, but there were some folks there who knew how to cut a rug! (And allow me to point out how lovely the lighting is for the reception. Doesn't it add so much to the imagery?)

Thanks Shannon and Blake for inviting us to document your big day!

Thank you for capturing our special so perfectly. I only wished the dvd would just keep going and going. I can't wait to share this with my family. Seeing the video really and truly brought me right back to June 6th!! Thank you so much! I appreciate your generosity! God has given you such a gift. I am so happy!! Thank you again! It was perfect!

You captured my attention with this one. The couple's personality really came through and the vibe was one of fun and love.

Kudos to you, VMP!
