Our friends Matthew Threadgill and Lauren Gibson were married on Saturday, June 19 at United Snellville Methodist Church. I had the honor of being one of Matthew’s groomsmen and Heidi and I were also the videographers of the occasion.
We arrived in Snellville Friday afternoon and after checking into our hotel we went to the wedding rehearsal. After running through things and scoping out how we were going to video the ceremony, we went to a nearby City park where the Rehearsal Dinner was held. The dinner was catered by Matthew’s uncle’s barbecue business. Amazingly good and scrumptious.
Saturday was a long day. Heidi was at Lauren’s at 8:30 to film her putting on makeup, hair, and the dress. I joined the groomsmen at 11:30 to get ready. We videoed everyone getting ready and the ceremony began at 2:30pm.
The one thing that went wrong was that the AC in the church didn’t work. We were all sweating like pigs up on stage. The bride kept wiping the groom’s face with a kerchief during the ceremony. The audiece was a sea of programs-turned-fans waving back and forth.
We all survived the heat though, and the wedding was beautiful. The video looks like it turned out well, so I will be busy editing it over the next couple weeks.
