Judy + Jonathan Highlight Film

Wake Forest Wedding Video

Judy and Jonathan’s wedding was held at the beautiful Sutherland Estate and Gardens in Wake Forest, NC, in early May. The couple snatched up one of our most popular wedding days back in late November last year. Judy was working on her medical degree while planning her wedding, so we weren’t able to connect as often as we like- but during her questionnaire review we fell in love with her and all her pups!!

The couple also chose well with The Sutherland Estate and Gardens, as it is beautiful year-round and boasts an amazing pavilion for large events. Our Wake Forest wedding video team was so excited to capture all of Judy and Jonathan’s special moments on their wedding day. Some of the most important moments Judy wanted captured on their wedding video was all the bridal and groom preparations. Our Wake Forest wedding video team made sure to capture a TON of these preparations, because making our clients happy is what is most important to us.

Of course, all of the preparations went over flawlessly. Judy was a vision in her stunning bridal gown, and her relaxed demeanor made her so natural on camera. Jonathan prepped in a quaint cottage on The Sutherland Estate’s grounds, and now Judy will be able to live all the moments she would have otherwise missed without a Wake Forest wedding video.

The ceremony was held outside at The Sutherland Estate, and who could resist not having it outside, with as beautiful as the Estate is?! After a few special readings, a soloist and I-do’s, the couple was officially married among all of their closest family and friends. Flash forward to the reception and Judy and Jonathon were set for some amazing toasts; the amount of love and intention for this special couple was immeasurable.

In our fourth year of wedding video, we here at HoneyDew Films are only loving what we do more and more. It’s amazing couples like Judy and Jonathan, with amazing family and friends, and even more special moments that we get the privilege of capturing that keep us head-over-heels for wedding video. Thank you Judy and Jonathan for entrusting us with your once-in-a-lifetime moments. We are so happy to present to you, your highlight film.

Meaghan + Eric Highlight Film

Triad Wedding Video

Wow, what can we say about Meaghan and Eric’s Triad wedding?! There are so many wonderful moments that were captured on their amazing day. Kelly, Meaghan’s mom, originally contacted us to discuss our availability for her daughter’s wedding day. It was an instant connection between us and Kelly’s family. They loved our work and we loved them! Even as a last-minute booking, Kelly knew just how important a video would be to Meaghan and Eric later on.

Meeting Meaghan on her Triad wedding day was like meeting an old friend. She was one of the most relaxed brides we have EVER met, and our associate videographer felt the same when meeting Eric. Even with the testy NC weather, this couple was 100% relaxed and committed to an outdoor ceremony. And how could they not be?! The Timberlake Earth Sanctuary was a hidden gem out in Whitsett, NC and boasted 165 acres of protected and meticulously maintained land. Every portion of the property offered new and exciting scenery. The sanctuary it is a videographer’s dream.

Lucky for Meaghan and Eric, the rain held out all through their ceremony and even a ways into the reception. The couple exchanged vows and were recommitted in front of all their closest family and friends. Their reception was full of joy and love for this sweet Triad wedding couple. A few hilarious and heartfelt toasts were given in the couple’s honor, and we are proud to feature them in their wedding video.

If we had to boil down Meaghan and Eric’s wedding day, it would come to a relaxed setting with a genuine good time. There are clients that make us feel like family, and Meaghan, Eric and Kelly are those clients for us. Thank you so much for having HoneyDew!

Congratulations to the happy couple, Meaghan and Eric!

Raleigh Wedding Video

Becca + Mike Highlight Film | Busy Bee Cafe from HoneyDew Films on Vimeo.

Becca and Mike had a lovely, unique Raleigh wedding this past weekend at the Busy Bee Cafe. What an adorable venue for this special couple to tie the knot! The guys and girls got ready across the street from the Busy Bee Cafe at the Sheraton Hotel in Raleigh, NC. Everyone was all smiles and eager for the big day to begin.

Becca made for the most stunning bride, wearing her late grandmother’s earrings and necklace. Her father obviously felt the same way during his first look with the beautiful bride. We could hardly told back our own tears at this sweet, sweet first look.

Mike and his groomsmen were also a joy to capture, and we especially loved Becca’s gift to Mike during the groom preparation. We knew this moment would remind Mike of the big moment ahead!

After a fun shot of the bridal party in at the Busy Bee Cafe bar, it was time for this sweet Raleigh wedding couple to say their I-Do’s. Becca and Mike had a unity painting for their wedding ceremony, and it turned out to be a LOT of fun!! Before long, the two became one with a kiss!

The Busy Bee Cafe in Raleigh made an amazing use of their wedding venue space by flipping the ceremony for the reception, while guests enjoyed the cocktail hour. Becca and Mike had tons of fun and interesting things for their guests to do, such as a fun game of corn hole, giant Jenga, and even a huge “selfie-station”. The amount of time and attention to detail this Raleigh wedding couple put into their wedding was evident by how much fun their guests were having.

After an evening FULL of fun and adventure, it was time for Becca and Mike to run through their tunnel of sparklers and head off to their honeymoon. Our Raleigh wedding videography team loves visiting new places and we so enjoyed our time at the Busy Bee Cafe. Although it may be hard to top this wedding, we hope to visit the Busy Bee Cafe again soon, for another wedding day filled with adventure.

Congratulations to the fun and happy couple, Becca and Mike!

Alli + Greg Highlight Film

Triad Wedding Video

Our first bride and groom of the wedding season tied the knot at Adaumont Farms in Trinity, NC. It couldn’t have been a more gorgeous day to get married out at the popular wedding venue, and Alli and Greg couldn’t have been happier. Alli chose to do a first-look with her father and grandma, and our wedding videographers were honored to capture that special moment for her and her family. As Alli was having her first-look, the guys were finishing up a round of skeet-shooting out near the groom’s cabin at Adaumont Farm. Per usual, the groom and groomsmen got ready in a flash and then it was time for the ceremony.

Alli and Greg opted not to do a first-look with one another, and saved this amazing moment for the ceremony. The couple had an intimate, sweet ceremony which included a sand ceremony and one scripture reading. After a kiss, it was sealed and Alli and Greg became Mr. and Mrs. Wright!

Adaumont Farms makes for an awesome venue because it is gorgeous, but also because it is an all-in-one wedding destination. As Alli and Greg’s ceremony was finished, guests easily navigated up to the barn for the reception. The fathers, best man and maid of honor all gave such special toasts to the happy couple, and it was party time!

We had an amazing time at Alli and Greg’s wedding and are happy to call them our first wedding of the season. Being there for all the special moments and capturing the subtleties of the day is what makes us love what we do.

Joyce + Josh Highlight Film

Greensboro Wedding Video

What can we say about Joyce + Josh? Sometimes everything, from the moment we walk in to film, until the end of the night, everything flows so perfectly. The energy from this couple, their families and friends was absolutely infectious and we could.not.get.enough.

Joyce and Josh’s 20’s glamour wedding was a gorgeous theme laid on top of a natural venue at New Garden Nursery. The nursery transformed their spacious facility into the perfect ceremony and reception site for this special couple. For their ceremony, it was a hot October day and Josh knew how to keep cool with his shades (figuratively and literally). Joyce had her flowers arranged at our local Greensboro Farmers market, and they were STUNNING.

After the ceremony, we were off to take some bridal party and sunset photos. Our shots of the happy couple in the sunset were some of our best yet. The reception came on quickly, and with it some amazing toasts from both the best man and maid of honor. After dinner the party got cranking and the booze was flowing! This crowd danced for hours on end, including the bride and groom. They even had us dancing right along with them (I mean, how much dancing footage do we really need?!).

We had an incredible time and Joyce and Josh will always go down as one of our absolute favorite weddings of the 2015 season. They knew where to invest their money- good food, good music, good photos (and in our humble opinion) good video. If we could attend their wedding over and over again, we would.

Congratulations to the happy couple, Joyce + Josh. Thank you for the memories and the good time.
