“We were not planning on having a videographer at our wedding. However, my grandmother was ill and unable to make the wedding and requested a video. We found Best Made Video, talked a couple of times, and scheduled with Reid only a week before the wedding day. He was incredibly flexible and informative. We knew what we were getting, he knew what we wanted, he showed up the day of, and the day couldn’t have gone any better. Like I said, we weren’t thinking about having a videographer and now I don’t know what I would’ve done without it! He did such an incredible (truly incredible) job of capturing our day! The edited video was amazing. It captured the feeling of our day perfectly! I am so beyond happy with how it turned out and now we can go back and watch it and relive our day over and over again! If you are a bride and you’re on the fence about a videographer, or even think that you don’t need it, trust me when I say it is WORTH IT. You won’t be sorry!!”
You hear a lot about high school sweethearts, but bride and groom Kat and Dan’s companionship began in junior high. Like all young boys, Dan would “annoy” Kat because it was the only means in which he could communicate these feelings—especially as a 7th grader. But it appeared that Kat liked Dan back, as her mother would note how she would smile when she would tell her about the incidents. Their relationship bloomed throughout high school—the two even became prom king and queen together—and endured through the aching distance during college.
The wedding, held at DeLille Cellars located near Woodinville, was as sweet and romantic as their story. It was a warm and sunny last day of July as the two met for the first look right outside the cellars. Dan was playful and excited, hopping around to greet his bride to be as she approached. They were all smiles as they continued with photos amongst the trees and grapes.
Enclosed by towering trees that filtered the sun’s light through the branches, the ceremony was like one from a fairy tale. Quaint and serene, the space would make any nature lover feel at home, but for the bride and groom—and dozens of friends and family members—it was the perfect place to tie the knot and have two best friends become husband and wife.
The reception to follow saw one of the best speeches ever in any of our videos given by the mother of the bride. In it, she recites a love letter written by Dan in his college years professing his love and admiration for his now-wife. The shocked look on Dan’s face makes it all the more priceless, but he took it like a champ as everyone heard the words he originally only meant for Kat. This may have been embarrassing being revealed on any other day, but on this one in particular it cemented their long-lasting love for each other while also proving to be a hilariously touching moment.
Their playful cake cutting led into a tender dance as they re-donned their Prom crowns for their first dance as husband and wife. As everyone else hit the dance floor, the lights went down and the partying started. After a few hours of drinks and dancing, the flower and garter toss went off with two victors as the night slowly faded to an end. A day that had been decade in the making was capped off by none other than a drive into the sunset, as the bride and groom hoped in a wicked convertible and headed down the road to a brand new future.
This was one of our favorite wedding videos from this past year. Young love always proves to be a beautiful story of two people becoming friends and something much more. With the gorgeous DeLille cellars as their venue, the wedding proved to be nothing short of exceptional. It was the perfect milestone in this young relationship that has many more years to come.
