Joann & Ryan's Trailer

For me, the word "fun" just epitomizes Ryan & Joann's wedding day. They were so much fun to film, edit, and, really, just to be around. There were so many great aspects of their wedding day, including a "hand fasting" ceremony, burlesque masks at the reception, and, what was by far my favorite part of the whole day, when Ryan serenaded his new bride and wedding guests at their reception. Both the ceremony and reception were located at Kuttawa Harbor House, with coordinating by Visions by Debra.

James & Andrea's Mosaic

We've shot over 130 weddings, but this was the first one we shot in HD. Andrea & James are a super sweet, super fun couple - and we happen to share a last name (no relation...we think) :) The weather was ominous looking all day (great shots for the videographer - not so great for an outdoor ceremony), but the weather cleared up in time and it was a gorgeous wedding day. Side note: it's not very often that I get to say "I'm gonna go shoot the horses" but thankfully this was one of those occasions. Check out their Mosaic (highlights of the day) Film below:

Rick & Bethany's Trailer

Back in October, a couple of our best friends got married...to each other. :) Rick and Bethany are an awesome couple and it was, by far, the most fun I've ever had shooting preceremony footage. I believe the word "epic" was uttered at least a hundred times that day...mostly by me. This trailer highlights a little of the aforementioned preceremony footage and their beautiful ceremony, located on an actual runway at Bethany's parents home.

(P.S. You might recognize Bethany from Bethany Ann Photography) Shameless plug!

Rescue Me

We got a call from North Shore Animal League America last week about a puppy mill rescue transfer here in Clarksville, TN. There's this amazing group out of Colorado, National Mill Dog Rescue, that travels across the country rescuing animals from dog mills. They picked up the puppies from a couple mills in Missouri and dropped them off at Precious Friends Puppy Rescue & Adoption to be vaccinated and cleared by a vet to travel up to NSALA in New York. This is the second puppy mill rescue that we've shot and it's by far the most rewarding experience that we've ever had the opportunity to film & edit.

New Sample Reception Films!

We've updated our web site with 2 NEW Sample Reception Films. Click here or visit http://www.turningpointproductions.com/weddingfilms.html to check out the new films.

The first new film highlights Mallory & Aaron's reception, shot at The Mill at Lebanon, and features the DJ services of Spangler Entertainment. There were many great details at Aaron & Mallory's wedding day, but one of my favorites had to be the Trivia. The DJ asked questions about Mallory & Aaron and the guest that answered the question correctly had their table released to the buffet line. It was a great way to keep the line from getting backed up and it was cute getting to hear little trivia facts about Aaron & Mallory.

The second new film highlights Travis & Whitney's reception, shot right here in Clarksville at The Cumberland Room. The wedding day was coordinated by Carly Rager Event Design and Coordinating and photographed by Joan of Art Photography. Whitney & Travis had such a fun reception - definitely one of my favorites of the year! The best moment for me had to be in the middle of the bridal parties' toasts. There were some beautiful, emotional toasts, and then one of the bridesmaids stood up and said "I just want you to know - I just saved 15% by switching to Geico." The room burst into laughter and it was just a perfect moment! I loved it!

Erin & Scott's Reception

Wow! We have been slackin' on the bloggin' this year! Good news is we have plenty of films to share. First up is a reception highlights film from Erin & Scott's wedding at Cedarwood way back in May. Lots of dancing in this film - including some clips of the ever-popular Bridesmaids Dance.

NOTE: VIDEO QUALITY GREATLY REDUCED FOR UPLOAD TO THE BLOG

One of my favorite details from the day had to be their cake, which was designed to match Erin's dress. It was a traditional tiered wedding cake, decorated with a ribbon and brooch identical to the ones on the dress. You can check out the dress and cake in the reception film (above).

Bethany of Bethany Ann Photography shot with us that day and took some amazing photos for us. We've been updating our site and client viewing site with the new photos. Thanks Bethany!

Client viewing site is up!

Our client viewing site, www.ATurningPointProduction.com, is back up.

Because the site was hacked, and we had to re-upload it anyway, we decided to update the site with new photos courtesy of Joan of Art Photography and Bethany Ann Photography.

Due to the volume of weddings that we've filmed over the last few years, we only re-uploaded films from 2009 and 2010. If you are a bride or groom from a previous year, and would like your film re-uploaded, please contact us and we will be happy to do so!

St Jude Wedding Favors

Back in April, we offered a special videography promotion where we donated 10% of all weddings booked during the month to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It was a big success and we can't wait to do it again next year. Until then, couples can make a difference in another way, through St Jude Wedding Favors:

"Doesn't every little girl deserve to grow up and have the wedding of her dreams?

At St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, we believe all children should have the chance to live long and happy lives. And now couples can join our mission of finding cures and saving children -- by saying "I do" to fighting childhood cancer.

We have a unique wedding favor program for brides and grooms to honor their guests with a donation to St. Jude. They may choose from beautiful, personalized honorarium scrolls or bookmarks to remind their friends and loved ones of their special day. The high-quality favors explain that the couple has made a donation to St. Jude on their guests' behalf so that the hospital's groundbreaking research and lifesaving care will continue. Either of these caring keepsakes may be personalized with the bride and groom's names as well as the wedding date.

The wedding favors are available by making a donation to St. Jude, and we suggest that couples donate the amount that would have been spent on traditional wedding favors.

Couples may also ask guests to make a donation to St. Jude in lieu of a wedding gift. They can even create their own fund page with their story and photo to enable guests to make their donations online.

All of these options present an opportunity that is meaningful for the bride and groom, as well as their guests and will help St. Jude save children's lives so they can one day make their own wedding dreams a reality."

Puppy Mill Rescue

We were contacted by North Shore Animal League America a couple weeks ago about filming the transfer of 100 puppies at Precious Friends here in Clarksville. The animals were rescued from puppy mills in Missouri and Oklahoma by National Mill Dog Rescue. They were brought to Precious Friends to be checked over by a vet and given their rabies vaccinations. They were then transferred into the care of NSALA and transported up to New York for adoption.

I was joined at the shoot by Joan of Art Photography. Joan took some amazing photos and you can click here to check out a slide show of her photos.

It was a really wonderful experience getting to film the event and we really enjoyed editing this highlights film:

It is also included on the final DVDs. Enjoy!

A Country Chapel

We LOVE filming at A Country Chapel. It's one of my favorite ceremony and reception locations and we always have a great time working there. This past Saturday, we filmed April & Josh's wedding day at the chapel. It was a wonderful wedding, even with the inclement weather. We got so much rain footage during the event, that we just had to share it:
