Paddy and Krystal met back in 2012 during nursing school but actually only really started talking towards the end of there studies. This was another covid wedding where I only met the couple on the day of. However spending the day with them I got to see why these two mesh so well.
My first stonefields estate wedding was a dream come true. Paddy and Krystal met back in 2012 during nursing school but actually only really started talking towards the end of there studies. This was another covid stonefields estate wedding where I only met the couple on the day of. However spending the day with them I got to see why these two mesh so well. Paddy is the more upbeat one and Krystal was calm and gentle. When deciding on a preview video for this wedding I went with Krystal’s vows. The way she spoke about Paddy and the vulnerability she displayed during the ceremony was deep and it left a room full of people quiet and focused on every word she said. It was enough to have Paddy say “wow that was good!” when she finished. The way she ended her vows was the equivalent of a mic drop, it was that good.
My only challenge at this wedding was an audio recorder that failed on me (this is why I have backups) it was a day of things not going my way at times but I always try to be proactive and prepare for situations like this and this day was no different. Weddings are not a film set so there’s many things that you don’t have control over so when it happens its good to have a back up.
From a creative stand point my favorite part about this wedding was the colors. Paddy’s green suit and just the moody vibes of outside really gave me inspiration of how the color grade would come together. This was definitely a wedding I was excited to edit and I think it really came together well. Another thing I loved was the ending of the night. Paddy and his boys being avid cigar enthusiast decided that they wanted a shot where they lit a cigar. I decided to take it a step further and get artistic with the shot. What I decided to do instead was get a shot where they were back lit with light. Seeing the smoke with the whole bridal party as silhouette’s was a vibe in itself and I figured this is a shot that I wont be able to get everyday. Paddy handed me a cigar at the end of the night which I actually lit at the end of my wedding season to celebrate.
The venue itself was awesome to shoot at. The best part about this venue is the amount of spots there is to get great shots. If you are thinking of having a wedding here I highly recommend it. From the ceremony chapel area to the get ready rooms every inch of this venue has character and you can tell a lot of thought was put into it to give couples options, I have a few more weddings here in 2023 and cant wait to film them. The photographers at this wedding were Sammie and Teah, fun fact I actually filmed a styled shoot with Teah. If you check out my older blog Teah and her partner Charlie were the models in a downtown styled shoot I did in early 2021. I actually didn’t recognize her at first because of her mask but how could you forget that name. I walked away came back and remembered her once her mask came off outside. All in all this was a great wedding and everything came together perfectly. If you’re thinking of having a wedding here I highly recommend it.
