I had the opportunity to film and create Tiffani and John’s wedding video and I am so happy I did! I’m not sure that I have ever been to a wedding that brought so much heartfelt emotion, happy tears and laughter. They chose LinRan Farm in Sumter, SC as their location and WOW! It was absolutely beautiful. The weather was perfect! It really was like looking at a wedding in a fancy magazine! The wedding parties on both the groom and bride’s side were awesome! There was so much laughter shared between them all throughout the day and I know that they made great memories that they are going to carry with them for the rest of their lives. There were so many memorable moments from this beautiful day. Tiffani’s father first seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time was such a touching moment. I remember the sweet flower girl asking why he was crying to which Tiffani responded:
“He’s excited! These are happy tears. He doesn’t have any more bills to pay with me.”
Being able to see how Tiffani and her father interacted with each another during the day was probably one of my favorite things of the day to film.
Another moment that stands out in my mind is seeing John’s reaction the first time he sees his bride walking down the isle with tears in his eyes. He wasn’t the only one. There were few dry eyes as the ceremony carried on. Something that I thought was very unique about the ceremony was something that John and Tiffani made together. Sitting on a table near where John, Tiffani and the pastor stood was a wood board with three ropes. On the board were these words:
“A cord of three strands is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 John & Tiffani 04-08-17
During the ceremony John and Tiffani took those ropes and wove them together symbolizing the two of them being joined together with God in the center. I have never see anything done like this before at a wedding and I thought it was a beautiful addition to the ceremony.
And of course I could not leave out the reception! DJ Howie kept the party alive delivering plenty of beats, games and laughs. The dance floor was not empty at this reception! Everything from the Electric Slide to the Cupid Shuffle kept everyone up and dancing. One of my favorite parts of the reception was a game that the bridal parties played. It was the groomsmen verses the bridesmaids and the competition was fierce! Each person was given a song that they had to lip sync and dance to and the crowd decided who the winner was. This was so much fun to watch and everyone had a good laugh. The guys put up a fight but in the end it was the ladies who came out on top.
This day was filled with love, laughter and celebration as every wedding day should be. To see for yourself check out Tiffani and John’s highlight video here. Warning: It might be a tear jerker! 🙂
