“Best of” 2019: Wedding Videography

Jenna and Matt | Downtown Tampa Wedding Le Meridien And Tampa River Center

“Jenna and Matt shared their vows in private before the ceremony, which created an extremely memorable moment from their day. That moment also fostered some emotional vows full of inside jokes and the history of their relationship that were perfect for creating a strong storyline in their film! This is my new favorite idea for weddings, and I’ll be suggesting it to all of my couples who may have stage fright sharing their vows in front of all their guests!” – Bonnie Newman Creative

Lauren and Max | Palm Harbor Wedding Innisbrook Resort

“Lauren and Max’s wedding was full of so much heart. The whole day ran so smoothly, the weather was perfect, and they are just such sweet, caring, and fun people. Some of my favorite things about their wedding were that they got married on their 6-year anniversary from their college graduation from St. Leo University and also that most of the vendors at their wedding are Marry Me Tampa Bay vendors!” – Kemari Lyn Films

Jordan and Danny | South Tampa Wedding Oxford Exchange

Jordan and Danny’s wedding had so many elements we loved: the ultra-dark, romantic, and moody setting of the Oxford Exchange, her father giving a really great toast, and limited details. Their wedding may seem ultra-luxurious and expensive, but they really let their venue speak for itself and kept their budget focused on venue and photo and video. The memories and moments from that day were what was most important to them, and we love capturing couples who feel this way.” – Bonnie Newman Creative

Kelsey and Philip | Sarasota Wedding The Ritz Carlton Beach Club at Lido Key

“Kelsey and Philip are so crazy in love with each other and it shows in every interaction they have with each other, and when they’re talking about the other. I absolutely love personalized vows, and theirs were so touching, sweet, and also had some fun personal jokes mixed in! I loved filming their bride and groom portraits on the beach because their connection is just magical, plus the sunset on the beach in Sarasota is gorgeous!” – Kemari Lyn Films

Cara and James | Sarasota Wedding The Powel Crosley

“THE DRESS! Cara was literally texting me when she was trying on dresses and asked me, ‘Would this look good on video?’ Obviously, give me all the sparkles! Cara and James also understood the importance of a good timeline. They wanted us to capture those pure, candid moments of their wedding day, but also wanted enough time to get plenty of dreamy, directed shots. Well, they got a wedding film packed with both, all because they coordinated with their photographer and videographer to create plenty of space in their timeline for both.” – Bonnie Newman Creative

Sam and Ted | Downtown Tampa Wedding Sacred Heart Tampa

“Sam and Ted are so incredibly down to earth and full of love for each other, and they make everyone around them feel like old friends. One of my favorite parts of their wedding day (aside from their heartfelt and tear-jerking letters they exchanged pre-ceremony) was that Sam’s first dance with her dad was such a fun, upbeat, and quirky choreographed mash-up!” – Kemari Lyn Films
