Sugar Creek Country Club, Sugar Land, Tx Wedding Video: Brenna + Daniel
Brenna and Daniel are a fun, laid-back couple who are from Louisville KY and Savannah, GA and got married in TX, so in order to combine all that in a great wedding, they had a great southern soiree outdoors at night on a golf course with a Kentucky Derby theme! Big Hats, warm sun, and cool beverages set the scene out at the Sugar Creek Country Club, in Sugar Land, Tx. I loved how much all of their guests got into the theme and came dressed appropriately. When I create the long version of wedding videos, there’s usually a whole chapter dedicated to showing the guests having a good time. Often this is filmed at the “cocktail hour” while the bride and groom are off taking their formal wedding portraits. Well, this is a part of the video that has a lot of sentimental value to the bride and groom, but a lot of the time not much of it shoes up in the short film, because I try to make the wedding trailer be all about the couple. With this wedding short film however, I couldn’t resist sneaking in a handful of shots of the guests with all of their fun themed attire!
An important lesson I think any prospecting bride and groom planning their wedding could learn from this wedding is timing. There’s a certain time of day, about half an hour before sunset, called the golden hour. It’s the time of day when everything is showered in beautiful warm sunshine and everything looks like a dream! Brenna and Daniel’s wedding fell perfectly in this time frame. I think it’s an important detail that lots of people forget when scheduling their wedding. Get an app on your smart phone and look up what time the sun will set on your wedding day, then start your ceremony about 45 minutes before that, then maybe, just maybe, your ceremony might be as beautiful as this one:
