A Charming Wedding in Washington, D.C.: Maren and Nate’s Story

We know that dogs have better sense than humans, and this story just might prove it once and for all. At a post-Labor Day pool party, Maren’s sweet pup knew exactly what she was doing when she took a liking to Nate, forcing her owner to introduce herself and make friends with someone else in her apartment complex.

Over time, Nate and Maren found themselves falling for one another over beach trips and nightly walks with their dog until they finally knew it was time to spend forever with one another and their favorite furry friend.

Puppy Love Turned Forever

Maren and Nate’s wedding video takes place at Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., where they held their outdoor wedding and reception. The couple is all smiles in every shot, effortlessly showing off their love for one another in a gorgeous piece of art they’ll treasure forever. You’ll even see shots of the pet that started it all, from her topper on the wedding cake to her role in helping all the bridesmaids get ready!

For this couple, sharing their love with their friends and family was the most important thing about their big day. Their video captures plenty of candid moments of them getting ready with their respective parties, meeting and dancing with their parents and enjoying every second of the ceremony and reception with everyone who attended. Their video highlights the beautiful pinks, greens, whites and golds of their color scheme and the incredible outdoor location of their ceremony where they exchanged their vows.

Most importantly, the video captures all those special moments between the couple, from seeing one another dressed up for the first time to their first kiss as a married couple and then dancing the night away while all their guests cheer them on. Our videographers were honored to be invited to their big day in Washington, D.C., as the wedding videographers in charge of immortalizing their best moments.

A Colorado Springs Dream Wedding

The Couple’s Perfect Venue

When it came time to tie the knot, Zach and Taylor knew just the place and the Colorado Springs wedding videographer that could capture its beauty. Colorado is bursting with beautiful scenery, and The Broadmoor destination resort in Colorado Springs is the best place to take it all in. Weddings at the Broadmoor are special, but even more so for Zach and Taylor. The couple had a special connection to the resort, so they knew it was where they wanted their wedding to take place. They reserved the Cheyenne Lodge at The Broadmoor for the wedding, and it was the perfect fit.

Making Their Wedding Special

The Broadmoor allowed Zach and Taylor to celebrate their love in a way that expressed their relationship’s uniqueness. The couple wanted their wedding to be as fun, upbeat and elegant as they are. The Broadmoor was their canvas that they could accent to their liking.

Zach and Taylor got married outside in the fall where Colorado’s landscape could shine in all its glory. Zach’s emerald green tuxedo complemented the vast evergreens that sprout just beyond the blonde wheatfield field that sprawls across the campus. Inside, the couple danced together under warm lights with the company of their dearest friends and family.

Zach and Taylor’s wedding exuded sophistication and connection with nature they can remember for a lifetime.

A Nod to Neverending Romance: Marcie and Montel’s Chicago Wedding Day

It might sound like an old story, but it never goes out of style — two young students meet on campus and end up falling in love. That’s exactly what happened for Marcie and Montel.

When they met in college, Montel was a sophomore. Marcie had just recently arrived on the college scene and was in her first year. As soon as they started dating, they knew they had discovered something special. In other words, no one was surprised when they made it official and got engaged.

Creating the Perfect Chicago Wedding With Lots of Family Traditions

Marcie and Montel wanted to incorporate their Filipino heritage into their wedding. They decided the veil and cord tradition was a must.

The Filipino veil and cord ceremony has been around for generations. During the ceremony, the wedding couple’s sponsors place a cord and veil on them. The cord and veil symbolize the bond that’s being acknowledged and supported. It’s a gorgeous nod to the past — and, as you can see in Marcie and Montel’s wedding video from Shutter & Sound, the moment was emotional for everyone.

Checking out Chicago Wedding Venues

Every wedding needs a venue that fits the vibe. For example, a modern wedding requires a contemporary setting. A nature-loving couple might opt to say “I do” in a place like a preserve, park or another location with lots of outdoor access.

For Marcie and Montel, experiencing a ton of fun and romance during their wedding event was important. They looked around the top Chicago wedding venues, including Lyman Woods Nature Center. Eventually, they decided to have their ceremony and reception at Harry Caray’s. As it turns out, Harry Caray’s gave them exactly the ambiance they were looking for.

Love and Laughs Captured by a Chicago Wedding Videographer

The lead-up to any wedding takes time and energy, but the day can whiz by in a flash. That’s why Marcie and Montel, like so many other couples, wanted to find the right Chicago wedding videographer to catch and preserve their big day.
