Shelby & Eric’s Amazing Catholic Wedding Ceremony at Our Lady of the Pines
We love Our Lady of the Pines. It is a fantastic Catholic church tucked away off in Black Forest. Not only are the staff fantastic and the priests are always great. The grounds around the church are so awesome to take video and capture photos in that we often stop there for weddings in Black Forest that aren’t even at the church!
Funny story: we told the church’s coordinator that little fact and she started laughing and said that we freaked her out a couple month earlier when she looked out the window and saw a bride and groom behind the church and thought she’d forgotten a wedding that day! Sorry… !!
The Warehouse Restaurant: The perfect reception venue for artistic souls
One of the great things about the Warehouse is the art on the walls. It’s never the same, as they always rotate in new pieces for sale. It totally adds to the urban chic of the rustic floors and old brick walls of this defunct warehouse turned restaurant.
We’ve photographed countless weddings at The Warehouse Restaurant over the years, but never shot a video before, so this was like seeing it all for the first time.
The food was great, as always, and Shelby and Eric threw an epic party to celebrate their new lives together.
Seeking Couples this In Love
There are no words to express what it was like capturing Shelby & Eric’s love story. I knew from their engagement portraits that they had something really special. They have an easy, tender, and joyful love. They aren’t afraid of PDA, and they adore each other.
I don’t know if I ever stopped smiling editing their wedding video. They just excude that young, wholesome excitement of soul mates joining their lives together. I recognize this feeling because I know it well: it’s the same feeling Char and I have for each other.
We all know that this kind of love doesn’t mean it’s going to be easier to be married, but it does mean that the hard times will be that much easier to fight through, as long as they have each other.
Shelby and Eric, you two have been very patient throughout this process as we’ve striven to capture the essence of this love you two share. Thank you for giving us the honor of celebrating your wedding day with you.
