This past weekend was our first double header of the season! We kicked off the weekend on Friday at Morais Vineyards & Winery right outside of Fredericksburg for Ben + Rosemary’s wedding! They dreamed for their wedding day to be elegant and chic but not too stiff. And if you ask me, it was that and SO much more! I mean, just look at this venue¬†ūüė欆Morais Vineyards has been on our shooting location bucket list for over two years and it was a dream come true to finally have the opportunity to shoot there!

We loved working alongside Taylor from Lauren Taylor Photography! See more sneak peeks of their photos here.

Ben and Rosemary officially met at Wakefield High School when Ben was a junior and Rosemary was a sophomore. Rosemary was preparing to enter a dance choreography competition and had asked an administrator if she could use the auditorium to record it. That administrator then asked who she was having record it and when she mentioned her mom, he asked, “do you know Ben Names?” and that is how it all began! Ben helped Rosemary film her video and in turn, he got himself a wife for life!!

Obviously there were quite a few years in between then and now, (almost ten to be exact). But, what began as just a meaningless¬†acquaintanceship to get a project completed, turned into a lifelong partnership, and commitment to forever be one another’s only!¬†

Ben and Rosemary, it was an honor to celebrate with you guys this weekend! We are so grateful for the ways you welcomed us into your story and invited us to play a small part in telling it through your wedding film! We hope you (and everyone who watches this) enjoys this sneak peek! We literally can’t WAIT to start creating your final film soon!

Side note, this might go down as one of our FAVORITE drone shots ever at the end of this sneak peek!!
