Jenn + Grant

Jenn had always dreamed of having a tropical beach wedding. Then she met Grant and he made it a reality for her.

About a year ago, Jenn and Grant flew down to Miami from Chicago. I had a chance to visit with them before they made another stop in Freeport, Bahamas to finalize their wedding venue. Grant and I had already been discussing things over the phone and they were excited about having BlueShore capture their day. In that short hour together, I felt like we were old friends. They gave me a clear understanding on what they envisioned for their wedding day…and even better, how they had 100% trust that BlueShore could capture that for them.

They held their wedding and reception at The Grand Lucayan Beach & Golf Resort in Freeport, Bahamas. The staff at the Grand Lucayan were so accommodating to us throughout our stay. Jenn and Grant kicked things off with a rehearsal dinner for all of their guests who had flown in from all over the world. They played some games and really made both families feel comfortable together. The following day the weather was perfect. Humidity was low and the sun was out. This made for a perfect setting for their beautiful ceremony. It was very emotional for everyone there.

During the reception, they had a surprise visit by a Bahamian band. The music was loud and the dance floor was full. Wow, did their guests know how to party! By the end of the night, Jenn and Grant were running through sparklers held by their guests. A perfect ending to a perfect day. Enjoy a sample of it below!

Krystle + Trevor

When I first met Krystle, she shared a funny little story with me. She said there was a photo that was taken of her mother and soon to be mother-in-law, where they were both huddled around a computer in tears. I asked her what they were crying about. She said they were tearing up from watching some of our wedding films.:)As I talked with Krystle, I learned a lot about her and Trevor, their personalities and the vision they had for their wedding film. I knew we would make a perfect fit.

They were married at Coral Gables Congregational Church. As they read their own vows to one another, I don’t think there was a single dry eye in the audience. They carried on the evening across the street at the famous Biltmore Hotel in Miami. The decor, flowers and uplighting in the ballroom were incredible. During dinner, there were some very touching toasts by family members and friends. From the moment the music started playing to the very last song, no one left the dance floor. These two really know how to throw a party! We had a wonderful time working with Krystle & Trevor. Now, both of the mothers can huddle around the computer and watch the wedding film of THEIR children.

Sit back, grab a box of tissues and hit play.

Ilana + Ben

I had the opportunity to get to know Ilana and Ben pretty well. We spent some time together working on a video to show at their rehearsal dinner. They have such fun personalities that compliment eachother so perfectly. They had me laughing during the whole time filming. Ilana explained the vision of her wedding, what the ballroom and ceremony location would look like, what was important, etc. It all came together when we arrived at the Eden Roc in Miami Beach. The decor was absolutely beautiful. The ceremony was emotional as they shared handwritten vows for one another. I think everyone in that room shed a tear by the end of it.

From the start of the Hora, the dance floor was packed all evening. And for those who wanted to party a little bit longer, they opened up a separate section for an amazing after party. Congrats Ilana & Ben!

Check out a sample of their awesome wedding below.
