Emily & Chase - Rockwood, TN Wedding Trailer

Director's Note: Holy moly... WE LOVE THIS COUPLE! Emily & Chase... you guys rock our faces off. Seriously.

Emily & Chase had a beautiful wedding day in Rockwood, TN at First Baptist Church and an afternoon reception at Grande Vista Bay Clubhouse. They couldn't have picked a better day to get married. Beautiful weather, wonderful friends and family, and a dazzling video team getting everything on film (ha!). Emily and Chase decided to do the "First Look" before their actual wedding ceremony, which saved them a TON of time after the wedding (taking pictures and all). They had an AMAZING photographer, Kristin Layne Peddicord or KLP Photography (who I know from experience LOVES a couple who takes advantage of a "first look".... it really does make your day less stressful, more enjoyable, and you get better pictures out of it!). Once we got to the reception at Grande Vista Bay, we set up a VIDEO BOOTH for all of Emily & Chases' guests to say a few words of inspiration to the wedding couple on film. It went great! (check out THAT video on our Vimeo page). Needless to say, Emily and Chase really went all out on their wedding reception. They had an awesome DJ - Firehouse DJ (Ryan Ladd), who we might add is our PREFERRED DJ vendor. Ryan - you da man. Emily & Chase - we had a blast !!!!! Hope you love this video as much as we do!

When most people think of weddings, they think of love. True love, that is....Birds chirping, violins playing in the background, the first dance at the reception, bottles of champagne popping, rose petals down the aisle....etc.

Given, that's what weddings are all about, right? I mean, weddings are all about true love...when soul mates join forces for eternity, and make a life-long commitment to their counterpart. I can't begin to explain the happiness that fills the air on a wedding day. It gives me chill bumps just thinking about it.

Believe me, I LOVE weddings. And the most amazing part is seeing true love come together in its youngest and purest form. However, I see it in a slightly different perspective. I see the wedding day as a once-in-a-lifetime event. It's the day that sets the foundation for the rest of your life with your loved one. It's a single day where friends and family gather to celebrate the love of the bride and groom.

My question to you is: How much of your special day are you going to remember?

The first dance? The rings? The reception? The look on his face when you say, "I do"? The flower girl? The dress? The music? The audience?

How about this: Instead of experiencing the wedding day just once, imagine if you could capture all of those memories and keep them forever....

That's what we do.

At Nicholas & Keaton, we capture not only the first dance, but all the laughing before and after the dance. We capture not only the picture-taking, but all the moments in-between the pictures. We capture not only the look on his face when you say "I do," but all the love that fills the air at that exact moment.

We capture the hair and make-up sessions, the dressing of the tuxedos, the first dance, the last dance, the ceremony, and everything in-between. We capture not only your wedding, but your entire wedding day.

Let us turn your once-in-a-lifetime day into memories that will last every day for a lifetime.

We are Nicholas & Keaton. We can't wait to meet you.

Ok everyone, you've seen a few videos and pictures, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Prepare yourselves for an unbelievable journey of pictures, videos, thoughts, inspirations, dreams, experiences, stories, and everything in between. Come join us, you won't regret it.

Much love,
Nicholas & Keaton

Lots of wildlife action at the Knoxville Zoo! This is an otter. He was awesome. Just, awesome.

Here is a sweet action candid from Amanda and Nick's wedding this past Saturday! It was at the Knoxville Zoo, and I must say....we had a BLAST. Bowties for the win. #Keaton

Ok... so we have to admit... we had a TON of fun shooting this one! Amanda & Nick gave us the flexibility to have FUN with their video. We've got a regular video coming that's all sappy and "lovey dovey"... but this one is rocker sexy cool! And WE LOVE IT! Thanks Amanda & Nick - we look forward to May 5th!
