“Your Search Ends Here, This is Your Videographer. Best Made Videos is definitely one of the best out there. Not only is Reid a professional, he is down to Earth and so easy to work with. Many times when we’d email Reid, he would respond within minutes! It was so great to have such a quick response. No pressure Reid! 😀 The videos of course were amazing! We enjoyed watching and sharing our highlights video with our family and friends. We finally got around to watching our ceremony and toasts after coming back from vacation. It’s so great to be able to relive those memories, especially since the whole day went by so fast! We’re looking forward to watching this in the future years to come. Thank you Reid!!”
It is funny how just a few miles of driving can take you away from the city into vast fields of greenery. Take a tip from the Conways if you want some jaw-dropping bird’s eye view action with our drone package. Opting for it themselves, the vastness of Snohomish was overwhelmingly filmed from up high with our awesome drone. At the peak of summer there is so much to see with clear skies and rolling hills.
Zooming in on Craven Farm, you will be shocked at just how…red…it is. With red buildings and dark red trees dotting the farm, it is a sight to behold, especially from above. This wonderful venue can seat up to 300 people and allow you to bring in your own caterers. We are always happy to come back here, even if it’s just for their pumpkin patch in October! Don’t worry if you are not going during peak season (or even during, for that matter) because they have two outdoor ceremony sites as well as one inside in case the weather isn’t so cooperative.
The Conway wedding got off to a great start. Some darts, sipping drinks and getting all spiffy took up most of the morning. The gents rocked pink ties that reflected the ladies’ lovely dresses. Once Shea was looking spiffy, he went to meet Diane along a romantic walkway for their first look. We got the two smooching underneath branches with sunlight spilling through and along country pathways. Once the rest of the bridal party joined in, the shades came out and everyone was having a good time.
There was no need for the rainy-day alternative today, so we headed out to the clearing lined with those splendid red trees. As the bride and groom made their way down to the altar, the summer sun shined bright in the sky. You got to give Shea some credit, he really knocked his vows out of the park. Was that a little The Office reference in there? After the officiant gave the word, Shea and Diane became husband and wife.
What farm wedding is complete without a barnyard bash? After returning from some time away from the crowd, the newlyweds joined their guests for dinner and cake. The dazzling wooden framework was strung with lights, under which the newlyweds shared their first dance. Convenient barrels lined the walls in case anybody else wanted to set their drinks aside for a good dance.
With so much daylight to burn, the dancing started early with everyone cutting a little footloose. Be sure to watch for mind-blowing breakdancing, with one guest (former groom Kevin) putting all others to shame. After all the dancing, there was only enough time left to catch some golden hour shots out along the fields.
Thank you to Shea and Diane for choosing Best Made Videos® to film their wedding! We hope you had a grand one-month anniversary! As always, if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below and we will happily get back to you!
How did you guys meet?
Shea and I met 7 years ago. We were and still are very busy people. We were tired of the bar scene and decided to try out online dating. At this period of time, meeting someone offline was still kind of a new thing. Shea tried online dating because his friend wanted to do something for him since he helped her get through a tough time. I started online dating to try it out. We were both kind of done after a few months. Shea was my last message I had sent after spending time with thoughtful messages and not receiving anything in return. I went on a few dates but they didn’t work out. So luckily everything turned out perfectly!
Tell us about the proposal!
Shea and I were in Ireland 2 years ago for our first international trip together. We were at the Cliffs of Moher and put the phone on the ledge of a window. He said we were taking pictures on the time, so we posed for some. He then said we had one last picture to take and it was an important one and that’s when he got down on one knee and proposed! It was so exciting and the phone was actually taking a video and not pictures!
Why did you choose your venue?
We loved the openness and the options for the venue. We love the surroundings of nature.
What are you most excited to see in the video?
I guess seeing our raw emotions of this day. It would be interesting to see what he and the groomsmen were up to as we are probably scrambling to get ready.
Nothing else! We can’t wait to see how everything turns out!
