Last year when Alaina & Ryan chose us to be their wedding videographers, we happened to be running a special for free Love Story Videos along with our Full Day Packages. We met this sweet couple in Orlando at Ryan’s brewery, The Crooked Can, to film their story. We had such a fun day getting to know them and all about how they fell in love and how Ryan proposed. A lot of laughs and beers were shared while making this video! PS- we always like to have drinks involved while making Love Story Videos because 1. It loosens everyone up and that’s when the truth comes out LOL 2. Why not? It just makes the whole day more fun. We even had the pleasure of meeting their super cute puppy, Barley. Check out their cute love story here:
Their wedding was October 27th at Chandler Oaks Barn in St. Augustine, FL. The weather could not have been more perfect, not too hot or too cold- which October in Florida you just never know. Alaina looked stunning in her Miss Hayley Page wedding dress and her bridesmaids all looked gorgeous along with their to-die-for fall bouquets!!
I think my favorite part about their wedding was hearing them exchange their own vows to each other. I think handwriting vows to each other is one of the most romantic things a couple can do on their wedding day! Oh I almost forgot my other favorite part, the multiple cakes!! They couldn’t decide which cake they liked best, so they got 3- this should be a new wedding tradition for real though! Their reception was so much fun and I think the photo booth stole the show. Everyone was dying to get in on the action there! Originally, they were planning for a glow stick exit, but with the chaos of all things happening on a wedding day, the glow sticks didn't make it to the venue and they ended up needing a backup plan. Their awesome photographer, Mandee Matthews, had a brilliant idea to improvise with cell phones and had all the guests turn their flashlights on their phones as Alaina & Ryan came by. It was a genius last minute touch to give them a special exit to end the night.
Ryan & Alaina, we had such a great time getting to know you guys! Getting to be a part of your love story all the way to watching you two say “I do” was such an amazing thing to witness. We’re so honored you chose us to capture the memories from your big day and we wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!!
