For the love of family

7 May

Meet Judith & Nathan: two wonderful people madly in love. 48 hours ago they married each other at a beautiful celebration surrounded by the people they love. And at the end of the evening when it came time to stand up and thank their families they had a special surprise in store for everyone.

Jude & Nate had started thinking about their speech months in advance wanting to truly express how thankful they were to their families and the role they played in their relationship. Initially the idea was to simply pre-record their thoughts as Jude knew she would likely be extra emotional and unable to get through her speech. As they discussed the idea of a film a bit more they knew they wanted to include photos in a unique way to help tell the story of two families becoming one.

The happy couple chose to wait and watch the film on the big screen for the first time along with their family and friends. We even recorded Jude & Nate separately as they shared what it is they love about each other saving their loving words as a wedding day surprise.

    wow…..your inspirational story has left me all choked up;
    & the ending, or should I say beginning, of the pictures dangling is perfect.

    We can’t thank you enough for our family film. It turned out better than we could have ever imagined. You’ve given us a gift that our families will cherish forever and it was a major highlight of our happiest day. We’ve watched it countless times, twice right after our wedding.  It’s more moving each time. We’ve received countless heartfelt compliments.  
    You are a truly gifted artist.
    Jude and Nate

      It was absolutely an honor and a pleasure to get to know you both over the last few months and be able to create a film for you and your families. Hugs to you both and wishing you all the best in the next chapter of your lives! xoxo
