Kayla & David Rogers | Southfork Ranch in Parker, Texas

On the 4th of August of 2018 Kayla and David became husband and wife. The couple were wed at the Southfork Ranch in Parker, Texas. The couple had met in the kitchen at MCP. Kayla was working hard to pursue her dream of a teaching career and David, worked diligently at the Renaissance Hotel in Legacy West.

As time went by, their relationship flourished. David decided it was time to ask Kayla for her hand in marriage. Shortly after deciding Kayla was the one David took Kayla on a gondola ride. The gondolier put a bottle in the river and asked Kayla to get it because they help out the local police with littering. Interested in helping the community Kayla agreed to help in their endeavors. In the bottle was a carefully written letter authored by David. He wrote of his feelings for her explaining that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Upon reading the letter shes turns over to him and he is down on one knee, the ring shining brilliantly from it’s box. Needless to say, she said yes!

The day of the wedding was bright and sunny, as if the heavens itself were in awe. The style of the wedding had a formal chic feel to it making for an exciting vision. The venue was also interesting location having been shot in the TV series “Dallas”.

Before the ceremony, David and his groomsmen set up the door where they would walk through during the wedding. Meanwhile Kayla did a heartwarming first look with her dad and brothers. Shortly after, the couple later read beautiful letters from one another. David said a prayer for his bride and himself of their special day. The anticipation growing. Kayla wore a beautiful cream dress, envisioning the perfect bride. Her hair pinned up, delicate braids accenting her updo, her smile beamed brighter than any diamond. David sported a soft navy suit and bow tie as he stood handsomely waiting for his bride. They recited their own vows before their loved ones as they tied a cord of three strands. The crowd cheered as they shared their first kiss as husband and wife. They danced their way down the aisle and to the reception.

The reception was full of fun and many surprises. David and his mother did a delightful mash up dance, the crowd hooted and cheered as the two danced merrily. Kayla and her father also did a mashup making for even more fun. The two ending the dance on a very sweet note.

No matter how many wedding you do, you’re still in awe of the amount of love one couple can share. Kayla and David’s love is one for the books.

Danielle & Brent Anderson | Bear Creek Ranch Event Center in Nevada, Texas

On June 23rd of 2018 Danielle and Brent Anderson were wed at Bear Creek Ranch Event Center in Nevada, Texas. Skys the Limit Production was given the honor of capturing their wedding day.

Before the ceremony Brent and Danielle exchanged gifts. Danielle received a watch. Brent was given a belt buckle with he letter “A” on it. Danielle then surprised her daughter with a necklace to wear proudly as she paraded down the aisle bringing with her; a trail of flowers. The couple beamed as they read their letters. Their love jumping off the page.

During some down time before the wedding the groomsmen enjoyed their cigars as the girls sat on their rocking chairs with their robes and sipped champagne. Danielle wore a beautiful long fitted dress that appreciated her body, the buttons on the back making a delicate uniformed line down her spine. The dress was accompanied by cowboy boots with a hint of teal decor. Brent sported a navy jacket with a warm yellow tie and jeans. This was all tied together with his black cowboy hat. The Bride’s daughter, Sarah, was the flower girl. The ceremony had a southern rustic feel. The soft decorations complimenting the wood. The sun was high in the sky, the pond behind them glistened in sparking brilliance. Skys the Limit Production captured this breathtaking moment on video for the couple.

The Officiant began the ceremony stating, “today you’re taking your care and trust in the hands of the one person in this world that you love with all your heart. You’re giving yourself your life and love in the hands of the one who loves you with all their heart. Always remember this, that to the whole world you are but one person, but to one person you are the whole world.” The couple began to exchange their hand written vows. Brent began, “Danielle, my promise to you is but a simple one I will love you today and everyday that follows until the end of time with the passing of every minute my love grows stronger and my devotion grows deeper, I will love you and cherish you until my eyes can no longer see your gentle smile, my ears can no longer hear your loving words and my hands can no longer feel your tender caress. From this moment until my dying breathe, you are my love, you are my life.” Danielle then recited her to him, “I promise to be all that you are not because you are all that I’ve never been. I promise to love you even when I might not like you. To respect you even when I disagree with you. To never get too comfortable to leap outside of my comfort zone with you. To communicate with you and not shut down, to choose you again and again at the start and finish of every single day, no matter the season no matter the year, I choose you to struggle and succeed with, to fight and make up with, to love and grow old with. I choose you knowing there are still trials we must travel knowing there are mountains left to climb. I choose you to always be by my side.”

Guests cheered as the couple made their grand entrance with the flower girl and sat at their Mr. and Mrs. table. Like any southern gathering, barbecue was served while guests played games. There was a live band serenading the couple with country love songs. The Bride’s cake was tall with pink and purple flowers decorated around and the groom’s cake was a decorated Copenhagen snuff cake. The couple were sweet and fed each other cake gently. During the bouquet toss, the Bride playfully tricked the group of girls she was going to throw the flowers. When she did throw the bouquet, the maid of honor caught the flowers. The best man was shy about giving his toast, but left a heartwarming wish to the couple and a hug with the groom. The bride danced with her groom, but made time to dance with her daughter as well. In a completely unique sendoff the couple and guests got to enjoy their own fireworks show – after the show the guests surrounded the couple with sparklers while they proudly walked through as Mr & Mrs.

Brianna & TJ | The Springs Event Venue in McKinney, Texas

“Today many people say marriages should be 50/50. We believe they should be 100/100.” Brianna and TJ met at a local bar in College Station. As life happened, the two grew closer, prompting TJ to ask Brianna’s father for her hand in marriage. He was determined to show her father how much he meant to her, brandishing the ring he carefully picked out. True to his word, the following day he proposed to Brianna.
On June 2nd of 2018, Brianna and TJ were wed at the Springs Event Venue in McKinney, Texas.

Whilst getting ready, TJ adorned his Bride-to-be with jewelry and (their inside joke) silly string. Once ready, Brianna did a first look with her father. They embraced, misty-eyed. Shortly after, Brianna wanted to steal a moment before they were wed with her groom showing him her dress. The Groom was very clearly smitten with his beautiful Bride before him.
The couple were wed under the vast sky and a crowd full of loved ones. They proudly recited their vows as the pastor gave a word of advice “you need to give each other 100% everyday…Be committed to your marriage everyday and someday when you’re old and attending your grandchildren’s wedding, you will be the couple who wins the dance contest on who’s been married the longest.”

The reception was very lively. The couple entered, boasting each other on their arm as they made their way down the staircase, the guests twirled their towels as if they were at a game. It was a joyful pandemonium.
The cutting of the cake was a treat for all who watched; TJ chased Brianna with icing on his finger. The couple danced to “Keeper of the Stars” by Tracy Byrd. Afterward, Brianna and her friends did the Aggie fight song and TJ jokingly threw up a Longhorn sign. As the dancing continued, the crowd danced with glow sticks making for a colorful end to a wonderful day.
As the couple got ready to head off into the night as Mr. & Mrs., the crowd blew a cloud of bubbles in their direction as they kissed once more for their loved ones before driving off together.

Skys the Limit Production would like to thank you for choosing us to be a part of this wonderful day! Congratulations! We wish you both nothing, but the best!

10 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Videographer

Every time I visit a wedding Facebook page or group, I always see the same question. Is a wedding videographer necessary? And the answer to that question is an easy “YES!” You may think that because you are hiring a photographer you don’t need a videographer, but they are two very different forms of art and one does not cover the other, and I can tell you 10 reasons why you need a videographer.

1. Some Moments Cannot Be PhotographedGood photography is powerful; it’s one of, if not the most important thing you should budget for. Investing in a good photographer is a must, but even the best photographer in the world cannot capture sounds and movement. The sounds from your video could be the vows you and your soon-to-be spouse speak to one another, a word of wisdom from the father of the Bride, or the Best Man sharing a funny and unforgettable story about the Groom. Movement could be the Groom seeing his Bride for the first time, a mother holding her “little boy” during the mother-son dance or watching the couple smash cake into each other’s faces.

2. The Emotional Impact – The emotional impact that videos can bring basically go hand-in-hand with sounds and movements, but also added music that go with the couple’s taste and carefully selected clips to bring everything together. It can leave you crying one minute and laughing the next. For example, my husband assisted me with a ceremony and he managed to capture such a tender moment: The officiant along with everyone else had their heads bowed and eyes closed. As the officiant prayed, the Groom opened up one eye and peeked at his Bride. She just so happened to peek up at him at the same time. She shot him a quick smile and closed her eyes again. You better believe you’ll see this clip in the highlights!

3. Easily Shareable – It’s unfortunate when a family member or friend cannot make your wedding due to distance, sickness or other reasons. Nowadays, videos can easily be uploaded through YouTube or Vimeo and can be shared within a click of a button. Having video will allow those who were unable to attend your big day in person a front row seat of your ceremony, digitally.

4. You’ll Get To See Moments You Might Have Missed – On the day of your wedding, you will want to take everything in, but in reality, this cannot happen; you won’t be able to see everything. You could be talking with a guest and thanking them and miss your parents dancing cheek to cheek with one another. You won’t be able to see, behind closed doors, your adorable little flower girl struggle to carry her pail of flower petals down the aisle. There’s nothing else like seeing your mother tear up while you read your vows. With video – you will see priceless moments you wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

5. Play Celebrity for the Day – You are the Bride and Groom, King and Queen; it is your day after all! You walking down the aisle comes to life in video – just imagine the doors opening along with the music revealing you. It is one of the few days where you get to be the focus and are surrounded by all the family and friends who love you. Your wedding is a day where you have worked hard to create an atmosphere that reflects you, your spouse, and your life together. All eyes and lenses will be on the two of you as we adore the charmingly dressed Groom and his Bride’s beautiful white dress sweeping across the floor. You’ll forget those little things, but your videographer will help you remember!

6. A Professional VS Uncle Larry – With the new iPhone specs being better than ever and cameras being more affordable everyday – it may seem like a good idea to pass the videography job to a friend or family member – don’t do it! There have been too many incidents about the lack of quality, missed moments and even worse, lost footage. You want Uncle Larry to attend your wedding, not work it; let him celebrate with the rest of the family. He may not be able to handle low light settings (causing grainy footage) and capture clear audio from the ceremony or toasts during the reception. Professionals come in 100% invested and excited about your wedding day. They know the toll the job can bring and they come prepared for the unexpected. You may witness the work they do on the day of, but the pros are still thinking of your wedding, weeks after going through all your footage and piecing everything together to tell your story cinematically. Professionals are worth the price they charge – which brings us to Reason 7.

7. May Not Be As Costly As You Think – If you didn’t add a videographer to the list of must-haves because you might think having a video would cost too much then be sure to re-consider your list. Do your research, compare prices with the amount of quality and quantity you will receive, and know about how long you need them there for; you might not need them there as long as you need your photographer. Once you’ve done this, meet up or speak with any videographers to see if they match you and your love’s personality and style. You may be pleasantly surprised!

8. A Keepsake – So your wedding day has come and gone, but you still have your video. While you can’t physically touch your video as you can with photos, you can still watch your day over and over again. You can make it a tradition to watch your video every anniversary; it’ll bring back memories and be a reminder of why you chose each other. This will be the closest thing you have to re-living your wedding day.

9. Remembering Loved Ones – Not only is having a video a keepsake, but it’s also a way to remember our loved ones as well. The people we love come and go, but your wedding video will bring back happy thoughts of when they were still with us. Like when they walked down the aisle, danced in the competition of who’s been married the longest, or gave a word of advice. All those emotions and memories from your day will come flooding back in.

10. No Regrets – This might be the reason that breaks my heart the most. Along with the question of “is a wedding videographer worth it?”, I also see this post around a lot – “What is your biggest wedding regret?”. 9/10 you will always see someone comment “not going with a videographer”. You won’t want to go through your wedding day and realize that you should have hired a professional; by then, it’s too late. There are just some moments in life that cannot be a re-take.

If you are getting married and have any questions about hiring a videographer for your big day, you can always visit our contact page and send your questions over. Remember, shop smart and happy wedding planning!
