Behind the Scenes

By Ashley McIlwain

So, you may have seen some of our recent Facebook posts and Tweets about this, but we are working on a new video project that we are super pumped about! It’s been in the works for a while, but 2 weekends ago we actually did the filming. Eee!

It was a gorgeous day out, which was perfect since we had decided to shoot outdoors at one of our favorite local parks. My husband, Steve, who has taken point with this whole project, was an amazing jack of all trades! Our camera guys, Justin and Eric, were outstanding and such a blessing. And, of course, our couples in the video were marvelous as well.

All in all, it was a super fun (and frantic) day that we are supremely ecstatic about. Now Steve will be working on all of the cutting, editing, and stylizing (He’s ridiculously talented at a lot of things, including video editing). Although we can hardly wait, the reveal is yet to come … so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here are some behind the scenes photos that got snapped throughout the day to tie you over.

Me, speaking from the heart.
