When two wedding professionals from your industry that you truly respect come to you to film their wedding, you feel honored, but yet, a little bit more nervous than usual. When one of those professionals is a filmmaker as well, the pressure is even higher. But like the big game, once you start working, you just start doing what you do best. And, when you have an amazing couple like David and Amanda, life gets a little bit easier.
As wedding professionals who have seen their share of weddings, David and Amanda Long planned their wedding weekend with an abundance of sweet touches that really exemplified what their relationship is all about. We love the connections that our couples share on their wedding day, but I’d be hard pressed to find one of our couples who expressed it as well as these two on the wedding day itself. From the exchange of hand written notes, to the thoughtful shared gifts, to the incredible and personal vows, to the look on each of their faces, you felt love in the air all day long.
This Berkshire Wedding Film took place primarily at the Kemble Inn, which is a gilded-aged mansion with a very chic modern charm in Lenox, Massachusetts. The couple took advantage of a few other beautiful venues in the Berkshires, as they did their first look and pictures at the Wheatleigh Mansion, while a gentleman’s poker game took place at the nearby Gateways Inn. It was hard to look around and not see a wedding professional at this wedding between those working and the many guests of the couple. Just a few of the great professionals we shared the working limelight with included Seth Kaye of Seth Kaye Photography, Jim and Lisa Powers of CJC Event Lighting, Wedding Planner Leslie Wiseman of The Wedding Belle and Shawn Santanello of Viren Entertainment. I’ll stop there, because there are so many and they are listed below. The couple received a full feature film (20 minutes), but I’ll tease you with the final minute and 15 seconds, which really captures what this couple is all about. The Clip begins with Amanda’s Grandfather’s toast from the rehearsal dinner and it ends with David and Amanda’s vows.
