Cate + Stephen | A Kansas City Short Wedding Film

A great way to make your wedding day more meaningful not only to you but to your family and friends, is to build as many personal elements into your wedding as possible. Including these elements in my wedding films makes my film more than just a quick trailer, they become a window into the heart of my couples. Nothing is staged, everything is real. Cate and Stephens film begins at the rehearsal with Stephen unable to continue talking about his bride without choking up, and then launches into Cate remarking about how precious he is. We love telling stories with moments like these. On the wedding day, beyond the looks and smiles that everyone delivers while getting ready, we also see Stephen as a joker and a football fan. When we get to the church, we see that it not only is the same church Cate’s parents were married in, but they drove the same route on the way to their own wedding. Reading the same vows that have echoed through her family for generations, Cate and Stephen were wed amongst their family and friends in a relaxed, familiar setting. After the ceremony we watch Cate lean back with happiness and excitement before the first kiss as man and wife. I include very few static details in my films, but have included a cake topper and cardinal as it has significant importance to the family. These details with family stories attached to them I feel are most important to relay to future generations. And then came the dancing. When half of your wedding night is full on crazy dance...
