The blog is about to be full of feature films that we’ve been working on for the last few months and we’re SO excited! First up is Brendan and Lauren’s Inn at the Old Silk Mill wedding!
Lauren told us that they chose the Mill to be their wedding venue because they felt like it reflected their character as a couple – it has a lot of charm, it’s walls hold a lot of stories, and it has a welcoming + comforting vibe! If you know them, you know that’s SO true of them!! And just by walking on the property, we could feel all those same things about the venue too!
Brendan and Lauren met through a mutual friend, James. Brendan had come to the states from Australia to work on the Obama campaign in Pennsylvania and ironically, Lauren was also working on the campaign in Virginia (where she met James). After the campaign was over, Brendan decided to stay in the states as did James (he’s also Australian). So, Brendan helped James get a job at the company he was working at. Shortly there after, James threw a housewarming party after settling into a new place. He invited Brendan and Lauren to the party where he introduced them for the first time! And the rest, as they say, is history! Brendan likes to say that he helped James find a job, and James helped him find a wife!
These two are so perfect for one another! I love when you get to know people and hear their story throughout the process of their engagement and then get to witness their wedding day – you have an even greater appreciation for how love is fostered in a relationship. These two truly have a special kind of love. They fit so perfectly and uniquely together and it was truly such a joy to capture their wedding day!
Some of my favorite shots we’ve ever captured (like this fun window shot) show up in their film. Brendan and Lauren are so playful and made their day so much fun despite the on and off rain showers! Which made it such a dream to film!
Brendan and Lauren, thank you so much for entrusting us to capture your wedding day! We are so grateful for you two and hope you enjoy reliving your day through this film!
