Hilton Pensacola Beach Wedding in Pensacola Beach | Taylor + Garrett | Florida Wedding Videography

Wedding Videography and Photography

Taylor and Garrett’s wedding was a union of kindred souls who are both madly in love and committed to each other’s happiness. Their first look was very special as the bride said ‘is this what you thought I would look like?’ and he replied ecstatically ‘I love it!’ The ceremony was held in the pavilion next to the pool with the palm trees swaying in the pouring sunlight and the décor was kept simple and sophisticated with white bouquets in abundance. What really struck me as a wedding cinematographer was the pleasant, loving energy of the couple and how that translated into their wedding celebrations. The couple is deeply loved by all their friends and family and there were plenty of laughs to go around, including a really funny joke the officiant made about having gotten his license online for $39.95!

The couple entered their reception amidst general cheers after the bridesmaids and groomsmen had done some really entertaining antics. There was an atmosphere of blessing, joy, and being grateful that this day had arrived and many of the speeches by loved ones reflected that. The couples shared dances with their parents and there were plenty of teary-eyed moments. As the day turned into evening there was a lot of freestyle dancing with friends and family and there was a DJ playing the couple’s favorite music to keep everyone entertained as shown in the wedding films. ‘Not only is Garett a gentleman, but he also has a great sense of humor, he makes great food, and he can put up with Taylor’s sass, which is a very important trait to have!’ said a bridesmaid good-naturedly in her speech. The best man’s speech that was both humorous and filled with wisdom was also a highlight of the reception as he said ‘Garrett has had the unfortunate fate of knowing me since Kindergarten!’

Dalton Young Films & Photography Review by Taylor & Garrett

Taylor & Garrett share their wedding experience working with Dalton Young Films & Photography.

Taylor:

We hired Dalton for our August … well, it was supposed to be June 6th, 2020 … wedding.

Taylor:

So for starters, he was so accommodating during all of this Coronavirus stuff. He was great. He helped us move our wedding. He was available for our new date. Was quick to say, “However I can help you guys, I’ll help you. And I’ll be there for … ” whenever it was.

Taylor:

And we actually live in Texas and we got married in Florida, and he was even willing to come to Texas if we needed to do the wedding here. So for one, he was super accommodating. Great in that aspect.

Taylor:

His quality is fantastic. We were both kind of hesitant when we were planning our wedding on if we wanted to do a videographer or not, and we talked to several friends and they were like, “We regretted not doing it. You should do it. It’s important. You’ll love it. You’ll look back on it.”

Taylor:

So, because it was a destination wedding, we didn’t get an opportunity to meet with all of our vendors. So, we did just hire a lot of them based off of emails and phone conversations, and Dalton was one of those. And I think we got very lucky because he did a really great job.

Garrett:

Dalton did a great job. He summarized our day in a video better than I think we could have ever expected. It turned out great. I don’t think you’ve stopped watching it-

Taylor:

Yeah. I’m obsessed.

Garrett:

… since it came back.

Taylor:

Yeah. He did a great job. I think when you have a full day with your family and there’s so much going on, there’s parts of it that I don’t even think we remember because it was just such a blur. And he did a great job of giving us something to look back on and remember all of the great times that we had with all of our friends and family for our wedding. So, we’re forever grateful for that. He did way more than I think we could have ever expected.

Taylor:

And for any future brides, especially destination brides, because I think Pensacola, Dustin, the whole Gulf area is a great spot to get married. I would definitely consider Dalton for sure, because he will not let you down. No way.

Garrett:

Yeah, Dalton was great, so thanks Dalton.

Taylor:

Yeah, thank you.

- Dalton
