  1. 35 Weeks Pregnant 2Matt Whytsell Photography

    35 Weeks Pregnant 1Matt Whytsell Photography

    So, I know I haven’t blogged a ton about our upcoming arrival. Truly, I have no idea where the time went! I feel like it was just yesterday that we were finding out we were pregnant, and now here I am at 36 weeks - with only 4 more weeks to go!

    So far, we have the stroller (hello amazing eBay Bugaboo find), his room is all put together minus a few little projects and this coming weekend I’m going to start packing our hospital bag. We’ve taken the newborn care classes, toured the hospital and watched numerous childbirth class and breastfeeding DVDs (love the Laugh n Learn series through Netflix).

    We had an awesome baby shower thrown by Gator Momma. So many friends and family in attendance showering little Tan-man with gifts. We are truly blessed.

    Onesie DecoratingAwesome onesie decorating organized by Em. She’s the best. And yes that is an ombre gator. LOVE.

    It’s funny. I had all these “ideas” before we got pregnant. I blame Pinterest. I thought I’d take weekly photos of “the bump,” spend my days doing DIY canvas prints for his room, sew his bedding, purchase expensive modern rockers, make little plush toys, etc. I also thought I would continue to wear “normal” clothes like all the fashionistas on Pinterest. But - that wasn’t reality. I’m totally in maternity clothes, but adorable ones (OF COURSE) from Motherhood Maternity.


    For awhile, it was so hard for me to manage my expectations. I think being so sick in the first trimester put a bit of a damper on my DIY mood. Plus, changing jobs at that time (and going full time GBVideo and Chomp On), moving to a new house/city, and trying to keep up with our work load had something to do with it. I’m now just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Hoping I can work in a little “maternity leave” before Tanner is here. I might attempt some DIY then! Fingers crossed. XX

    Hoping to finish up Tan’s nursery soon. Be on the lookout for a full post!

    Till Then. Much Love.

    We had a great time at the Fairytale Wedding Show. This was our very first bridal show, so we wanted to make a big splash with an awesome booth. Design started right after Christmas, and Kyle has worked just about every weekend since, building our booth. Since this little lady has been getting bigger and bigger (hello 3rd trimester!), he’s mostly had to build our booth by himself. Poor guy. I did provide emotional support - checking up him - bringing him snacks and drinks. So, I feel like I contributed, somewhat. :)

    We had a super rockin’ giveaway at the show. We gave away a FREE Love Story Video Session. And the winner? Miss Leah Shoniker! Leah - contact us to work out the details. :)

    Alright y’all - back to the grind. We have a New Year’s highlight reel coming soon, a pretty sweet photographer promotional video and - SOON - the arrival of our little bundle of sweetness, Tan-man. Can’t wait!

    Much Love.

  3. Matt + Natalie // The Proposal from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

    Okay, this is a video that is incredibly special to us. Matt of Matt Whytsell Photography contacted us a few weeks ago with an idea to capture on video his proposal to his long-time girlfriend, Natalie. Our answer? Heck yes.

    We have been dreaming of capturing a wedding proposal on film. We were practically pinching ourselves when Matt asked us. We felt so lucky and honored that he would choose us to capture such a special and priceless moment.

    We met Matt about an hour before Natalie’s flight came in. Why was he proposing at an airport? Watch the video above to find out.

    Matt’s awesome 2nd shooter, James, was on hand to capture some pretty sweet pictures.

  4. Lakeside Ranch // Promotional Video from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

    Lakeside Ranch is an old Florida ranch opening its gates for weddings, corporate events, or just about anything you can think of. They have a beautiful lake for bass fishing, horses to ride, horse-drawn carriages, a golf course, skeet-shooting range, a bonfire, and so much more. We were brought on to create a promotional video for the grand-opening of the ranch. We went out and spent two days capturing some pretty awesome footage of the natural beauty of the ranch along with their beautiful horses and event locations.

    A bunch of great vendors were involved in the promotional shoot and Launch Party for Lakeside Ranch. We had so much fun hanging out with  Russell Martin Photography (who took all the photos in this post and are totally awesome!),  Strings for ThingsThe Occasional Cake Company,  Party Time RentalsKeith Watson Productions,  Studio 352 EventsAl Dee Productions, and A Bridal Boutique.

  5. Michael + Gina // Feature Film from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

    Michael and Gina's Hammock Beach Resort Wedding

    It was a crazy foggy day in our home town of Palm Coast, FL. Gina and Michael were married at the ocean-side Hammock Beach Resort. We could barely see 30 feet ahead of us during their ceremony, but we roughed it out and managed to pull off our first “Feature Film.”.

    Gina and Michael have a beautiful story. We felt they were the perfect candidate to debut our newest offering, Feature Films, because we felt a Highlight Reel just wasn’t long enough to give their story justice.

    Feature Films are basically extended versions of our Highlight Reels. More great footage, more story, more music, more fun! We love these versions of our videos because we don’t have to cut anything out we feel is important. So many times we were editing Highlight Reels and felt we were leaving important story-lines, speeches, clips, etc. out. And it was bumming us out majorly. So, it dawned on us, why not make longer Highlight Reels? And so, the GBVideo Feature Film was born.

    And what’s even better? All our Feature Film packages come with an additional 2 hours of coverage. Awesome-sauce.
