Ritz Carlton Naples Beach Resort Wedding Video

Lindsay + Rex // The Ritz-Carlton, Naples


We’re super excited to share Lindsay and Rex’s wedding trailer, which we filmed at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Beach Resort in Naples, Florida. We’re not only excited to share this because it was an AMAZING wedding but also because there was a moment where the wedding almost didn’t happen. Let us explain….

We filmed Lindsay’s sister’s wedding a few years ago in Chicago at the Peninsula Hotel. So, when Lindsay and Rex contacted us about filming their wedding in Naples, we were ecstatic! Eight months after they booked their date with us, Hurricane Irma made landfall in Naples, Florida. It was the most intense Atlantic hurricane to strike the United States since Katrina in 2005. Buildings were destroyed….many damaged…including Lindsay and Rex’s wedding venue! Many of their out of town guests had rooms reserved there as well. With weeks to go before their wedding date, it became a scramble to find new rooms for all of their out of town guests…and more importantly, a venue where they could have their ceremony and reception!

If you asked Lindsay and Rex’s family, their wedding was always going to happen…it was just a matter of where. They were determined to find a place and The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Beach Resort came to the rescue! With the help of their planner, Courtney from Fabulously Chic Weddings, Lindsay and Rex were able to relocate their entire wedding party and plans in a matter of weeks! AMAZING is an understatement.

Naples is a beautiful place and The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Beach Resort created the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable wedding weekend! Here’s the abbreviated trailer:

Madison WI Indian Wedding Video

Callie + Anay // Madison, WI


Callie & Anay both attended the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and met while at a conference at the University of Dallas. They planned their wedding weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. The first day of Hindu ceremonies included the Vidhi (prayer ceremonies) and Pithi (rubbing yellow paste). The setting for these ceremonies was beautiful-set back in the forest in a pavilion in Madison, Wisconsin. The mosquitos were out but the peaceful tone of nature and the mantras from the Hindu priest were beautiful.

The second day of ceremonies included a baraat, which started with Anay and his groomsmen aboard a boat, circling Lake Monona. Everyone continued the baraat along the bike path to Monona Terrace; where the Hindu wedding ceremony began under the mandap with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Manona.

After the Hindu wedding ceremony, Callie and Anay both got ready for their Christian ceremony at Grace Episcopal Church. It was another beautiful setting. The church stands in the shadows of the Madison, Wisconsin“>Wisconsin State Capital building. The wedding party danced the night away to a band inside Monona Terrace Convention Center & Banquet Hall. It was an amazing weekend in Madison, Wisconsin and we’re so happy that we could film this amazing celebration!

Several weeks after the wedding, we were hired to film a corporate video in Madison, Wisconsin. So, we brought our drone and were able to get some really nice shots of Lake Manona, which we incorporated into Callie & Anay’s trailer and film.
