When Nicole called inquiring about Splendor Films, and then told us her wedding was in Asheville- we couldn’t get on a plane fast enough. Then, as we got to know Nicole and John more, we knew there was no better couple we’d like to celebrate a long weekend with. It isn’t often that we film small intimate weddings, but I can without a doubt say that these become our favorites. In addition, getting to know Nicole and John’s families was one of the highlights of our trip (in addition to our pitstop at Biscuithead!).
John’s dad was diagnosed with ALS a year and a half ago, and we were thankful for the laughs and celebration in John and Nicole’s wedding day. I don’t think we ever saw John’s dad stop smiling. We know a little about ALS through helping with Fotolanthropy and the story of John Paine in the film The Luckiest Man. If there’s anything we’ve learned from that experience, it’s how we cherish life, and there was no shortage of that this weekend. John’s brother was even able to participate all the way from Moldova via video, and we loved the life-size cutout and fun he brought to the party.
The beautiful backdrop of Asheville, NC was straight out of a dream- and the time we spent with Nicole and John was equally as dreamy. It isn’t often we get a bride who will climb on a tree, sling through mud, and go dance in a field. Nicole and John trusted us and we think the end product is outstanding. Thank you, Nicole and John, for taking us out to Asheville and letting us film (and photo) your wedding day. Congratulations and we wish you all the best!
