Nature’s Point Super 8 & HD Wedding Videography: Mimi + Clint

Mimi and Clint had a beautiful and heartfelt wedding day at Nature’s Point on Lake Travis.  Mimi was stunning in her beaded Jenny Packham dress. Their ceremony was humorous and touching, and I literally got chills from their ceremony musicians, Deric Lewis and The Church Choir, who lead the processional with “Oh Happy Day” and “All You Need is Love” and the recessional with “Happy” by Pharrel Williams with a dancing wedding party! (Not to worry, that will all be showcased in the full-length film.)

The day was also captured beautifully by Diana M. Lott, and it went off without a hitch thanks to Barbara Hearne of Barbara’s Brides.

The reception was quite the party with dancing on a patio over Lake Travis fueled by the sounds of Sauce. And one of the most unique takes of the photo booth/sketch booth trend was The Original Butt Sketch artists working the reception! (More on that to come, too!)

Mimi and Clint’s joy was palpable on their wedding way, and we wish them many, many years wedded bliss!

Posted on Jun 15, 2014 in About Us, filmmaking, general, Nostalgia Film, super 8 | 0 comments

I sneakily edited this when Michael didn’t know, so I could surprise him with a viewing for his first Father’s Day!

It features our daughter Zora’s first Christmas at home (at just a month old!), Easter at Whirlaway Farm & Garden (see if you can’t spy Natasha of EcoChic Floral!) as well as Zora’s first visit to where we got married, during the annual party at Casa Rio de Colores!

We wish all you new dads and dads-to-be in the Nostalgia Film family a very, very wonderful Father’s Day!

Stylish architects Erin and Adam were married at Red Corral Ranch in Wimberley, Texas, on a beautiful spring day. We loved their colorful touches and their creative record guest book table! I also adored the bride’s touches of aqua–from her Kendra Scott necklace, to her manicure, to her shoes!

We always love working alongside the talented Tara Welch Photography to capture the day. Orchestrated by Jessica Moore of Something to Celebrate, their day went off without a hitch–from the touching ceremony to a lively reception. I especially enjoyed the hayride to the reception in a picturesque barn! Check out the highlight film of their day below!

Many congratulations Erin & Adam! We had so much fun capturing all the gorgeousness of your wedding!

’70s Wedding Inspiration | Vintage Wedding Videographer

Posted on Jun 12, 2014 in wedding planning, wedding trends, wedding videography, weddings | 0 comments

Last week, I reminisced about the ’60s as ideas for wedding inspiration. (Also take a look back at the ’20s & ’50s!) This week, I wanted to take a flashback to the ’70s! I actually got to live a teeny tiny bit of the end of the 1970s, so it’s close to my heart–the fashions, the music… In addition to wedding inspiration, I am thinking this would be an amazing 40th wedding anniversary theme, if only my parents let me throw them a party next fall!

Think boho chic–flower crowns or headwraps — plus retro dresses and suits. Sweeten it up with white and yellow daises or daffodils in milk glass as centerpieces. Choose touches of vinyl records in displays or as invitation inspiration or take it in a totally disco direction with sequined bridesmaid dresses! Get more inspiration on our Pinterest board and below!

And here’s a sweet, boho-style Super 8mm wedding video!
