I think it’s every videographers wish to have the ability to branch out away from their own home market from time to time to see new areas of the world and meet new people, and we couldn’t be more blessed to be afforded those opportunities. I remember driving up to Oakhurst Farms (there’s a shot in the video of what you see driving up) and thinking what a magical place it was, tucked away in the quite country side of Georgia near the border to Alabama. Oakhurst Farms is more than wedding venue, its an actual working farm for local goods, and we absolutely love that! The large house in middle hosts a wonderful space inside, but walk a little further, and you get to my favorite part – the back porch! Such a relaxing place full of rocking chairs and ceiling fans overlooking a small lake and rolling green pastures. Just down the trail and over the bridge is a lovely spot for ceremonies that can accommodate tons of different outdoor style weddings.
Mary Michael and Marshall have a great story (that you hear told in the video) – one of faith in God and it really came through after talking to them and getting to meet their families. See, this project was actually brought to our doorstep by a really generous situation, one that we absolutely have to share. A young man named Hunter Ward contacted us long ago after seeing one of our wedding films from the lovely Jenny+Tim on facebook. Mary Michael is a Student Living Coordinator at a college gap program that Hunter was a part of. He enlisted all of Mary-Michael’s students to all chip in a little to pay for the whole ticket. We think this is an incredible gesture and it shines a light on what crowdfunding can really accomplish these days! In the end, we were the ones who were truly blessed, as we were able to meet and enjoy really special times with some really special people. Please take just a few minutes to hear their story, and see what a beautiful wedding this was!
