Last spring my little sister gave me one of the coolest opportunities I've ever had when it comes to making films - she asked me to film her wedding. It was by far the most fun I've had capturing a wedding day. It was such a cool experience filming Charlie and Hannah's story because not only did I know their story, but I knew the story of everyone who was a part of their day. It was really cool to be able to be on the "sidelines" and watch the day unfold. Hearing a father of the bride speech when it is your own dad up there puts a completely different perspective on it.
Both of my sisters, Chelsea and Brenna, did Hannah's hair and make up for her. (in the dining room of the home I grew up in) Hannah also put on her dress at my parent's house which made for a pretty cool setting although I may be a little biased.
One of the other things that made their day so special was that they got married at my family's golf course, Hickory Grove. When they got married it was the first spring that the course had been closed since it opened 51 years before that. Charlie and I had grown up playing golf their every day together so it was pretty cool to be in that setting watching him and my little sister tie the knot. And for some icing on the cake? They drove off in my Grandpa's Ford Model T, the very same one he picked my grandma up in for their first date, and they were both there to see it!
Be sure to watch the film and scroll down to see a few frames from the day! Did I mention they had one of the most incredible first looks I've ever filmed? Watch it!!!
Congrats to Hannah and Charlie!
