ELIOT + HANNAH
APRIL 16, 2016 // NEW BRAUNFELS, TX
I've had the privilege of knowing the Olson family for several years and have loved getting to know their family. My uncle, aunt, and cousins have grown up with this family as dear friends and over the past few years, I've gotten to join in on this family friendship. About a year and a half ago, I was able to film Eliot's younger sister, Grace, and her husband Dan's wedding in Kansas City. When Susan asked me to film Eliot and Hannah's wedding in April in New Braunfels, I was so excited to get another opportunity to celebrate this family and help create something they can look back on and remember such an important time forever.
I was able to meet Hannah a few months before their wedding at her bridal shower. One thing that stood out to me was that Eliot showed up at the bridal shower, just to drop in unexpectedly for a few minutes and give Hannah flowers. It was so clear to me how much these two adore each other and desire to bring each other joy.
Their wedding day brought some unexpected surprises...rain forced the ceremony inside the winery's storage building, but that didn't keep it from being a beautiful time celebrating the union of this couple. Eliot's brother-in-law, Dan, officiated the ceremony and did a fantastic job at describing this couple's relationship and how they had gotten to this point, all the while giving all glory to God.
As always with the Olson family (and as I found out, Hannah's family as well) the dance floor was full all night long. A couple of other highlights from this wedding were getting to spend time with my aunt and uncle (be sure to check out the drone shot that starts the video--compliments of my uncle's sweet drone) and shooting alongside my best friend, Kiah Bailey, on her first wedding (she did awesome!)
I'm constantly thankful for every opportunity I have to capture some of the moment's for a couple's most important day and I always hope to create something they'll cherish forever. Eliot and Hannah, I hope you will always be able to look back on this video and remember this incredible day!
