Hannah & Brian's Wedding | Ennis, Texas

Hannah called me a long time ago after she saw the trailer for Erica's wedding, in which she was a bridesmaid. We talked and she ended up feeling like the videography wasn't something she was comfortable asking her parents for, in addition to everything else. Fast forward several months when I received a call from Hannah's mom, who wanted to surprise her with our services. We got everything nailed down, and waited for one of Hannah's showers. Her mom put our card in a photo frame, and Hannah opened it and didn't even see the card; she just thought it was a nice frame! It wasn't until after the shower when her mom suggested she call me that she realized what she had received. Of course she was excited and I'll bet her mom was relieved!

I was excited to film this wedding because it was going to be a huge Czech affair, and because I knew I'd see Erica and Jess again. It's always fun to experience different cultures at weddings. The day started out at the church where everyone got ready and the groomsmen goofed around a lot. Hannah looked gorgeous and I love the purple bridesmaid dresses. After some photos, the Catholic ceremony, and another fun photo session, we headed to the reception. Family members helped cook and serve the Czech food (sauerkraut, anyone?) to the 600 or so assembled guests. We took Hannah and Brian outside for a quick sunset photo session, in which we were able to take advantage of the tattoo that Brian got three days before the wedding.

Then the dancing kicked off with the Grand March, with music by a Czech band. Brian and Hannah led all their guests in a weaving line throughout the dance floor, then an arch of arms, and then ended with a dance surround by rings of their loved ones. It was long and somewhat complicated and a total blast. They also hired a DJ to play between the band's sets, so there was something for everyone. The dancing lasted well into the night.

Here's their trailer; we love the way it turned out.



Reception: KJT Auditorium
