We met Jackie’s mom a few months before the wedding and had a great time talking with her. She told us that she and her husband had recently gone to see Lady GaGa in concert in New York, so we knew this was going to be a fun wedding. We didn’t meet Jackie or Jon before the wedding day but we instantly clicked with them when we got there to start filming on June 26. I started at Jackie’s parent’s house for the bridal prep. Jackie greeted me with a big hug and I intstantly thought she was adorable! She was a cheerleader at NC State, so the bridemaids were mostly NC State cheerleaders, and all super sweet. Her dress was absolutely beautiful and one of my favorites. She got ready in her room and there was a lot of cool details to work with and I thought it was sweet because it would be the last time she got ready there as a single woman. Chris went to capture the bridal prep with the guys in downtown Raleigh and had a good time.
The ceremony was at White Memorial Presbyterian Church in Raleigh. It was a bit of a challenge because we had to remain in the balcony and couldn’t mic the groom, which was a first, gotta love Raleigh church rules. So it forced us to be creative and take a different route with this highlight. The reception was at one of my favorite venues, Prestonwood Country Club in Cary. I stepped in the room and my jaw hit the floor! It was incredible! Lyn, with Fresh Affairs outdid himself with this wedding! I didn’t even know where to start filming because it was so beautiful. The rest of the evening went great, we had a lot of fun capturing this wedding! And it’s always great working with Cara and the Southern Soiree team!
We sent the Highlight video to Jackie last night and here’s her response all in CAPS :: “WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!! ITS AWESOME!!! YOU GUYS ARE SO AMAZING ITS SO FUN TO SEE EVERYTHING THAT WAS SUCH A BLUR!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! WE ARE SO HAPPY WITH IT!”…Jackie + Jon, Bride+Groom
