Jacob + Mary Margaret | The Mill at Fine Creek, Powhatan, VA | Deluxe Highlight Film

Today’s post comes from Josh:

You may or may not know this about me, but I tend to oversell things. I get really hyped up about something; I think it’s the best thing ever, and then everyone and their brother has to know about it. And, it isn’t just good, it’s usually “UNBELIEVABLE!” This is just who I am. I have an excited personality and when I tell you about something great I want you to feel that excitement too!

With Jacob + Mary Margaret’s wedding, I think I could very easily oversell how amazing it was, and how beautiful it was. Let me first tell you about the couple. Jacob + Mary Margaret are some of the most chilled out, down to earth people you could ever meet. Every conversation we had leading up to their big day was so relaxed. I knew filming their big day was going to be amazing, and it didn’t hurt that they were both drop dead gorgeous. Something neat about this wedding was that video was something they decided to add pretty late in the game. But the thing is, we had the date free, and everything fell into place pretty quick. So if you’re big day is coming up soon, just remember that it is really never too late to get video (or photo) lined up for your wedding.

I don’t want to bore you with the same thing you always hear me say about our brides and their weddings. They really all do look that good, I’m serious. I’ll simply say this. They were gorgeous, the venue was unreal, and the wedding was a blast. In terms of making a great film for the couple, we literally couldn’t have asked for better conditions. What makes it even better is that we finally had the opportunity to work with the amazing photo duo Grant & Deb. Can I just tell you that they totally live up to the hype?

To believe me, you’ll have to just watch the film. It’s some of the best work we’ve done. Have fun, and yeah… you might wanna grab a tissue.
