Marianne + Ryan
Blowing Rock, North Carolina
Heavy clouds blowing through the Smokey Mountains; rain gently falling on the streets, reflecting the Christmas lights that decked the town; fog rolling over a wintry lake as a wedding party stands on its banks witnessing a wedding unfold. Marianne and Ryan’s wedding in Blowing Rock, North Carolina was breathtakingly beautiful.
We met up with the couple the day after their wedding for an adventure session in the town of Blowing Rock and luckily for us, they were as excited to be out playing in the rain as we were! Luckily on the wedding day itself, the rain held off until just after the ceremony. The fog on the lake was so stunning and proved to be the perfect backdrop for their heartfelt vows.
With Christmas just round the corner from this December wedding, the rich palette that the couple chose for their bridal party and reception felt so festive and so right for the day.
“If you're considering The Quail & The Dove then you should already know their videography skills are unparalleled (if not... pause and go watch some). What you might not know is Jim and Melissa are a Dream to work with. Since we were doing a destination wedding we had a few facetime conversations prior to the wedding which really made it feel like we already knew them when it was wedding day. Instead of just being another vendor, Jim and Melissa felt like an extension of our friends and, I mean this in the best way, they were largely invisible for most of the time. They were even unfazed by our excessively large and loud dog trying to eat the fluffy microphone on the camera all day. They captured all the special moments, big and small, and were so seamless in their approach that even with just 24 guests, they blended in. We also didn't want a lot of direction or "staging" and they were very cool about just letting us do our thing and capturing the moments organically. The post-wedding aspects were also very easy to work with, we went back and forth until we found songs that we loved and they were able to license, and they were able to turn the video around in about 2 months which is way quicker than we were hoping. From day one until video delivery day they were quick with responses, professional, honest, and open. If you're still reading this, the point is, you should book The Quail & The Dove without hesitation and you won't regret it.”
