Wedding

Carlie + Ricky by matt wolfe [cc]

I have been retired from wedding videos for awhile now, but I just had to shoot this one since the bride was a friend from this group of friends and sisters whose weddings I’ve all shot. There was this bit of surrealism in shooting this day. My usual assistant had gotten sick, and I had to, on short notice, find a fill in. Then it rained for several hours before the ceremony. The humidity was bonkers; nothing but sweating. The AC went out in the church. But the evening closed out on a happy bride and groom. And it was fun to see so many former bridal couples in attendance, several with their first kid already in tow. One couple even walked up and were like, “Hey, do you remember us?”

It was definitely a fun day.

It sure looked like rain was coming to wash us out, but only a slight drizzle after the ceremony and everything was back to normal!

Ashunti + Chris by matt wolfe [cc]

Congrats to Ashunti & Chris on getting married!

I usually get a feel for musical likes based on the couple's reception playlist. One of the hardest, to me, genres to really find good indie music for is R&B, and, well, any hip hop that you think could work for a wedding. There is a good bit of indie hip hop that can work for a reception, once you parse through for language, but with R&B, most of the R&B tracks I listened to, regardless of great sound, thematically dealt with loss. Not something you want for a wedding video. I was so nervous that Ashunti wasn't going to like to music I picked out for her video. (I was sweating bullets, for real!) But in the end, they loved it.
