You’ll Know it When it Happens

This week, we are so thrilled to share Caroline and Brad’s Signature film by Alex Karas on the blog! Caroline and Brad knew they had instant attraction when they met at their place of business. It wasn’t long before Brad was whisking Caroline off to Lake Tahoe to propose! Their love of travel takes them all over the world but when they settle down, there is no place they’d rather be than in gorgeous St. Pete- which is why they decided to have a wedding at the bride’s parents home in St. Pete.

Upon meeting Caroline and Brad, I think one of the things I loved most about them is that they were so laid back! They were really focused on the love they have for each other and for the marriage that followed the wedding day. When crafting this film, we really wanted to capture the importance of how this couple seemed to be inevitably meant to be but also to capture the beauty of the location and the setup. Caroline and Brad both stressed how important having the wedding at the home was to them and how their love for St. Pete is really such a big part of who they are as a couple.

Enjoy this film and their story- I think it makes us all believe that when two people are meant to be, they will be! Congratulations Caroline and Brad!

Being on the Voila Cinematic Team –

Recently, one of our sweet brides posted a review on The Knot stating:

“All we can say is WOW! What a beautiful experience to get to relive our wedding over and over again through such a gorgeous video. Both videos are amazing and capture every moment and emotion as if we were there again. We wanted to watch them on repeat, they were that good! The entire team at Voila is truly exceptional and talented. We are so blessed to have hired them for our wedding. Words really can’t express the gratitude and appreciation we have for all of their hard work.”

This is exactly what we love to hear from our clients!! Unfortunately, I can barely remember my own wedding day. The adrenaline of the moment took over and I think I just smiled and waved- going in whatever direction I was told to throughout the day. Hearing that our couples are able to relive the small moments that otherwise might have gone forgotten is just the best!

One of my responsibilities at Voila Cinematic is to help with the chapter editing and burning of the DVDs before they get sent out to our couples. I might not remember all the details of my wedding day, but I can enjoy watching our sweet couples in these amazingly crafted films with all their emotion and excitement, reminding me of the beauty of this covenant that each couple is making, and the covenant that I too once made!

Thank you to all of our happy couples for reminding us daily how beautiful it is to fall in love with your spouse and to marry your best friend! Thank you for your kind words to us in your reviews! It is because of you that we love our job, and it’s because of you that we received the “2016 Pick from The Knot’s Best of Weddings!!”

Here is one of the first weddings I worked on when I joined the Voila Cinematic team. Enjoy!

We’re Back!

You might take a look at our blog and wonder, “where have they been?” Well, it’s obvious that we fell off the blogging wagon, but it wasn’t because of a lack of content! We have been so busy working (and having our second baby) that unfortunately, blogging took the backseat to many beautiful weddings and wonderful edits!

But, we are back and we can’t wait to get back to blogging! For now, we’d love to share a few of our favorites from the last year! Check them out- we’ve got another great year of weddings lined up and we can’t wait to share them with you!

we need your help!!

We absolutely love hearing from our clients about how much they love their wedding films. It can be nerve-wracking in this creative and subjective industry, but we appreciate all feedback positive or otherwise. We have been fortunate enough to be recognized on The Knot and Wedding Wire as industry leaders in their “Best Of” and “Bride’s Choice” categories. We would love to win these awards again this year and you can help make it happen!

Would you please take just a couple of minutes to review our services at Voila Cinematic. You can write one review and post it in both places below. Our business thrives off referrals and we are so appreciative of every one. These reviews carry a lot of weight with potential new clients.

We would greatly appreciate your help and are eagerly awaiting your feedback.

lindsey + bobby

It was such a treat for us to film the wedding of Lindsey and Bobby! They chose to have a destination wedding at the iconic Don CeSar hotel on St. Pete Beach. Having met in graduate school in Nashville, they started dating after friends pressured them to get together when they were both in Connecticut the following summer. Lindsey fell for Bobby’s wit and Bobby passed the ultimate test – winning over Lindsey’s dogs. With a remarkable beach wedding, Lindsey and Bobby got married May, 10, 2014.

Watch their film here:
