Chelsea & Drew Chasak | The Brooks at Weatherford, Texas

On November 16th, 2018, Drew and Chelsea were wed in holy matrimony inside a little country chapel at The Brooks Venue in Weatherford, Texas.

Chelsea is a first-grade teacher while Drew works sales at Sellmark. The couple met through mutual friends during their time in College Station. As time went by and the couple grew closer Drew decided it was time to pop THE question. During Easter Sunday just after the Easter Egg Hunt Drew procured an Easter egg with something other than chocolate. To Chelsea’s surprise inside of the little egg, laid a ring. Before God and all her loved ones he proposed.

The ceremony was absolute perfection. Each detail carefully made and placed to be tied all together to create a matrimonial masterpiece. The bridesmaids were enveloped by smooth emerald fabric whilst the groomsmen sported fitted ash colored suits and a pop of green from their ties. The bride in all her glory wore an off the shoulder lace wedding dress. The intricate laced design trailed her arm in ivy like fashion, her onyx colored hair pinned back in an elegant updo, ringlets softly framing her face. Her veil flowed behind her like a narrow heavenly stream. She was in every way beautiful. The groom looked so handsome in his grey suit and emerald tie. His hair combed neatly to the side, no doubt exuding a dapper presence.

The reception was as lively as it was gorgeous. The whole room glowed with love and adoration for the new couple. The guests glided across the room to the music, laughter roaring from every corner. The night was an absolute treat for anyone who had a camera for sure. Skys the Limit Production would like to thank you for choosing us! We are truly honored to have been able to have captured your very special day through video. We wish you both nothing, but love and happiness.

Another successful year at the Bozeman’s Christmas Tree Farm! The air was cool and crisp. The Lumberton skies overcast like a smooth grey sheet stretching over the earth; making the vibrant green of the trees stand out. There’s nothing like a photo shoot on a Winter’s day to get you into the Christmas spirit. It’s the perfect gift for family and friends. Everyone enjoyed the sweet treats from Kittie’s Kookies. Personalized ornaments are on the way from Down Our Crafting Hole! Skys the Limit Production would like to thank you all for letting us be a part of your holidays.

Savannah & Justin | Bernhardt Winery in Plantersville, Texas

During a warm, sunny day on July 14th of 2018, Savannah and Justin were wed at the lovely Bernhardt Winery in Plantersville, Texas. Skys the Limit Production provided photos for the couple throughout the day.

The couple met through the Groom’s mother, who happened to work alongside Savannah at Sam Houston State University. Seeing a potential match for her son, she asked Savannah to dog-sit while she was out of town for the holidays, thus giving ample opportunity for Justin and Savannah to meet. After famously hitting it off, Savannah and Justin’s relationship grew.

The following year, Justin’s sister, Lauren, gifted them with plane tickets for Christmas. The tickets were for them to come visit her and her family who was currently residing in Paris, France. In July the next year, the couple traveled to France, reaching Bastille Bay. That evening at Mel’s (Lauren’s friend) apartment they enjoyed dinner and awaited the fireworks. The apartment looked out into the city, the Eiffel Tower in plain sight, and the ancient City of Love itself made for a very romantic setting. After Mel’s careful urging, the couple were led upstairs to the secondary terrace on the rooftop to better see the fireworks. Just as quickly as she ushered them, Mel was gone saying she had forgotten something in the oven. The two were alone, the Eiffel Tower lit up purple and gold, the setting sun creating a perfect backdrop. The couple talked for a few moments until Savannah sensed a change. Before she knew it, in this beautiful city, on a rooftop terrace in the evening, with he Eiffel Tower looming over them, Justin proposed. Having said yes, the couple came down and announced their future plans over champagne and fireworks.

On the day of their wedding, Savannah and her bridesmaids bustled around getting ready whilst plucking fruits from the spread on the table. The air was warm and everything seemed to be abuzz, including the birds. The venue, being a winery, had it’s own beautiful, rustic feel. Vines lovingly encased around the building, cutting into the staircase leading to the Bride’s Party. While the Groom’s party was down taking pictures, the girls enjoyed the cool air and finished up the final touches on the Bride.

The ceremony was held outside, the crowd patiently waited, the warm breeze giving comfort from the heat. Justin stood at the alter, wearing a soft grey suit with a warm honey colored tie, his hair combed perfectly. His eyes were bright with anticipation as he saw the time for Savannah to walk down the aisle was near. Out from the swanky glass doors the Bride emerges. Huge wedding bells to her left rang out announcing her presence. The dress she wore swayed gently behind her as she walked, her hair curled and pinned in a some up, some down, style, truly embodying a princess. Her smile was more brilliant than the sun. They recited their vows proudly for their loved ones.

After, the ceremony commenced. Everyone was buzzing with laughter. The crowd quickly got into the mood to dance and from there it was off. The crowd danced merrily, singing along to songs being played around them. It was in every essence fun and lively. As the crowd gathered to see the couple off, sparklers were being lit. Justin and Savannah arrived in the doorway ready to go off into the night as Mr. & Mrs. The crowd created a sparkling path for the two, shouting loving words and wishes for the newlyweds.

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!
