You read right, this is a double feature! Two fantastic films in one post!

David and Lauren are wonderful.  Lauren has one of the kindest hearts we know and she loves to laugh. David is ridiculously smart, but extraordinarily humble and rock solid. We had a blast hanging out, laughing, exploring and creating new memories with them as we shot their engagement video. They are so comfortable together and it was really easy to capture the sweetness of their relationship on film.

Although you’ll notice that we filmed their engagement video a while ago (the leaves on the trees will give it away), we didn’t want to ruin a surprise they had in the works! They wanted to reveal their engagement video at the wedding and surprise their family and friends. For something as fun as that, it was not hard to hold out and make sure we helped keep their secret.

David and Lauren’s wedding was beautiful. Their ceremony was held in the beautiful Queens College chapel here in Charlotte and they celebrated their marriage with friends and family at Myers Park Country Club. It was so fun to be a part of Lauren and David’s day and celebrate their commitment to each other.

We are still working on their film, but we couldn’t help but share a little teaser of their first glance. We just love how you can see in David’s eyes that he is beyond excited to see his wife-to-be on their wedding day.

We are currently booking weddings for 2013 and would love to tell your story whether it be through photos or video. We love getting to know each of our couples and not only gaining an insight into who they are, but having the privilege to share that wonderful story with others. We love to travel too, so don’t hesitate to contact us if your wedding is outside North Carolina or even outside the states – our passports are valid and yearning for more stamps! Let us know if you would like us to be a part of your story at hello[at]grainandcompass[dot]com or use our contact form on our site!
