Back in October, Meagan and Donnie invited us to film their beautiful wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is one of my absolute favorite places, and having been once before I knew it would be amazing. Meagan is also a videographer, so she really understood our process and allowed us creative freedom in almost every aspect. She also follows a lot of our work, so we offered to shoot some Super 8 B&W reversal film in exchange for being awesome. Once we arrived, we met up with Kellan Studios for lunch (they are seriously amazing photographers + also from VA ;]), and we headed to the Isle of Palms to follow Meagan and Donnie as they got ready. Afterwards we headed to Boone Hall Plantation for the first look, which was a cinematographers dream. The three mile drive is lined with majestic live oak trees embellished with cascading Spanish moss. It was absolutely stunning, and probably one of my favorite locations ever. The ceremony and reception were held nearby at the Cotton Dock, which overlooks a small marsh. The texture was off the hook and Meagan really made the space her own. 1500 hand folded Origami peace cranes hung infront of the reception area, as well as over the dance floor. They looked incredible and we were sure to include a few in the footage. After the heartfelt ceremony, Meagan and Donnie danced into the night. At one point Donnie and all of the guests broke out into a surprise choreographed dance for Meagan that was incredible. No one was quite sure when it would happen, but it was truly perfect. Before their sparkler exit, some guests launched lanterns into the night. The sight was amazing and really was a highlight of the reception. Meagan and Donnie were such a thrill to work with and I am so excited to share their film below!!! Enjoy!!
