As videographers, wedding days go by quickly. On Hannah and Adam’s day, there was such unique intimacy and calm; it had this amazing way of making everyone feel like family. That closeness took us completely out of the “busy” of the day and put us into blissful documentary mode.
When someone asked Hannah if she was nervous, she said, “I won’t be once I see Adam.” It was like watching a slow sunrise, once they were together a peace filled over them. Unspoken nerves spilled into layers of confidence and excitement for the day.
The ceremony was “short and sweet” Hannah said, whisking herself away to bustle quickly before heading back to the Chattanoogan ballroom. Adam and Hannah beamed as they spent the rest of the night dancing and visiting, taking a few quiet pauses to pray, kiss, or smile at each other every now and then. They dined on a delicious plated meal, danced under a spectacular chandelier, and even treated their guests to a Harley Davidson grooms cake among the other sweet treats (we may or may not have eaten in between shots)!
The biggest highlight of the night was Dad’s speech to his little girl. He spoke words of such blessing and pride and conveyed the most heartfelt gratitude for his life with his daughter; it brought Bill and I to tears. Short and sweet may be true, but so is moving and unforgettable. If you need me I’ll be over here playing Hannah and Adam’s wedding film over and over all weekend to remind myself of the hospitality, friendship, and family such a steadfast love can create.
