2016 Wedding Reel!

2015 was an AMAZING year at Message in a Bottle. We grew in style, confidence and end product.  Our 2016 Wedding Reel is a culmination of many of our favorite moments from our 2015 weddings.  We are so proud of the growth we have accomplished and the stories of love we have captured in time for our clients.  Take a look at our new reel and feel the power of the video medium in capturing the essence of love.

Thank you to all of our amazing couples in 2015 (and before) who trusted us to tell your stories and capture the memories of your wedding day.  Without you, none of this would be possible.

Without further ado, our 2016 Wedding Reel:

The New Website is Up!

We are so proud to announce that our new website is up and running.  I have to send a huge thank you out to the Message In a Bottle staff who all poured their talents in this new webpage. Super shout out to our own VERY talented Josh Gilmore.  Who not only designed our new logo, but also created this shiny new site.  We are excited about the future of providing high quality video to the Memphis area and creating even more wedding films for our fantastic customers.

The journey Message in a Bottle Productions has been on over the past few years has been a wild ride and I couldn’t have gotten to this point with the support of my friends, family, fantastically dedicated employees and countless area wedding and video professionals who have locked arms and decided to work together.  I am humbled by the progress made in the journey so far and I look forward to the bright future Message in a Bottle hold.




Wedding Tears of Joy

When I first met Kiley I met a beautiful bride excited about her upcoming wedding day.  Andria Lewis Events, LLC was her wedding planner and Andria, Kiley, and I met at a Starbucks to discuss our wedding videography services.  At the meeting I learned all about her fantastic wedding. She told me of the plans she and Lofton had to celebrate their special day.  It came time for me to present Message in a Bottle’s work.  I explained our packages, our style, and our vision.  She was onboard and we were on the same page about how we wanted to capture the memories yet still be invisible at the wedding.  Our company has worked with Andria Lewis Events many times, so Andira’s comfort and familiarity with our services made her bride more at ease.  Finally it was time to show her some video samples of Message in a Bottle Productions’ work.  I picked one of my favorite wrap up videos set her up with my laptop and pressed play.  She watched intently as the couple in the video prepared for their big moment, and then celebrated their love.  By the time the bride walked down the asile in the video Kiley was in tears.  These were happy tears.  They were tears of joy.  She was so excited about her wedding that when she thought about picturing herself in that moment the emotions were overwhelming.  We all had a nice sweet laugh after the video and yes, she booked our services.  I was excited to get to be a part of a day that meant so much to a bride.  As I prepped my team, I made sure (just like I do every weekend) that we remember that we are capturing priceless memories for our clients and to always make sure that we do our best.
Kiley’s wedding was this weekend and WOW was it great!  Kiley looked stunning in her dress and Lofton was a handsome and proud groom.  You could just see the love between these two.  The wedding went off without a hitch and the joy had been captured.  It was such a pleasure getting to edit what I knew was going to be such a special wrap up video.  I wish I could be there when Kiley watches it and finally sees herself as the beautiful bride that she was.
I know I have said it before but I LOVE MY JOB!!!  Thank you Kiley and Lofton for letting us be a special part of your wedding day.  Also thank you to Andria Lewis Events for putting on an amazing wedding and for introducing us to Kiley and Lofton.
Check out their wrap up video and see the love for yourself.
Their love brings tears of joy to my heart!

A Fantastic Wedding!

Awesome …. Incredible ….  Phenomenal …. these words just don’t seem big enough to describe a wedding we went to recently.  Carra and Robert got married at Union Ave. Baptist Church and then had a fantastic reception at Minglewood Hall.

With at least 10 bridesmaids (maybe more!) and an equal number of Groomsmen this wedding was NOT lacking one bit in support of family and friends.  At the rehearsal dinner almost every single one of them explained in great detail about how special this couple was and how positively they had affected their lives.  When Dad got up to talk about his daughter you could feel the power of love in the room, which quickly broke into laughter as he presented Robert with a new wardrobe of Memphis T-Shirts in a tongue in cheek attempt to get the couple to move a little closer to home.
The wedding day although lavish in design was simple with the girls doing each other’s makeup and hair, and the boys watching the PGA Championship and Nascar.  The designs were beautiful, the colors elegant, and the brides dress was stunning.  However, no one doubted for a second that this couple needed anything other than their love for each other.
The ceremony went off without a hitch, with both mothers’ eyes streaming tears of joy.  The room was electric as the bride walked down the aisle with her father in a moment they had both dreamed of for a lifetime.  The sweetest moment of the ceremony came when the Minister pronounced the new couple husband and wife, and let Robert know that he could now kiss the bride.  After a beautiful kiss Robert leaned in and kissed Carra on the forehead.  The gesture showed his love and caring spirit and the whole sanctuary was assured that this marriage would last forever.
The reception had an awesome band from lower Alabama.  The band brought the funk and fun to the party for sure.  The Bride and Groom were introduced from behind the stage and proceeded into the most epic first dance I have every witnessed!  These two loved having fun with each other and they were some comfortable with themselves that no one else in the room seemed to matter.  The Bride and her father were quickly joined by the rest of her family on the dance floor, and the groom and his mother cut quite a rug!
The reception had food and fun from all different icons of Memphis and the guests from near and far enjoyed quite the party!  When it was all over the bride and groom waited to leave until they could thank their parents and share a special goodbye before exiting through their family and friends who were armed handful after handful of confetti!  As their Taxi Limo left the parking lot everyone had a warm feeling in their heart of the magic of love that they had witnessed that day!  Thank you to the Bride and Groom for letting us be a small part of their wedding day, and for offering us the opportunity to capture such loving moments on video!

Sexton Wedding Wrap Up

Fun!  We could end this blog post here.  That is the only word that needs to be said about this wedding!  Sure we could use Beautiful, a Celebration of Love, Amazing, Heart-felt ….  but really, it was FUN!

The bride and groom had such a great sense of humor and the bridal party felt so comfortable that everyone had a good time.

The wedding was at the Woodland Hills Convention Center and we have never seen that place look better.

The groom hailed to Memphis to follow his bride from New Jersey.  If everyone is as cool in Jersey maybe we should move there!  Wait ….  it’s cold there, so were staying right here!  In fact these it snowed on their wedding day here in Memphis!  It’s a sign! ;)

The jewish ceremony was beautiful!  The Rabbi was a master of his craft and delivered a touching service that really celebrated the love these two shared and recognized the commitment they were making.

Dancing, Food, and Fellowship followed!

Thank you to everyone involved!  We had a great time getting to be a part of your special day!

 Check out their Wedding Wrap Up Video and make sure you watch all the way until the end!
