As I’ve said in the past, it’s always a real honor to be hired to shoot another professional’s wedding. In this case, I was actually referred by a videographer to another videographer, so it was like a double honor to be respected by two professionals enough to create Nick’s Arkansas wedding film.
The ceremony was at Calvary Chapel, a newer small church in Fayetteville. The entry way was nicely decorated with several items. One wall was lined with 4×6’s of the lovely couple from when they were little to the present day. On the other side of the room, they had photos of older relatives and an assortment of older items including an antique phone and a wood box with “A True Love Story Never Ends” written on it.
The ceremony site had a large wooden cross on the stage, and light bulbs, and pink paper puffs were strung from the rafters. The ushers also wore the coolest bow ties and suspenders. It was all very well planned.
The place was packed, which makes sense because Nick and Allison are loved by so many people. They are such strong Christians and lovely people, that everyone is just drawn to them.
A Wedding Film Surprise
During the ceremony, Nick did something pretty amazing. He made a video that talked about their past and all the different parts of their relationship. Like I said earlier, Nick is a videographer, so this wasn’t your every day iPhone video, it was professional and emotional. I wish I had done something that special for my wedding.
The reception was held at the always awesome Garden Room on Dickson Street. The biggest things that I remember from the reception were the speeches and the dancing. The father of the bride was very emotional and added more great details from the couple’s courting. The dance floor was busy the entire night. It seemed like everyone in the crowd had been practicing the choreographed dances.
There was so much more to their wedding, but I don’t have the space to cover it all. Take a look at the video to see all the emotion and detail from Nick’s Arkansas wedding film.
