Couldn’t resist throwing together a little sneak peak of this adorable couple.  Michelle and Joe were smiles the whole day and took their wedding theme of the 1940’s to the hilt with every detail from the vintage cars, bridesmaid dresses, ring bearer outfits and flower girl dresses… even the hairstyles and accessories were vintage.

Though its not shown in this teaser video, they also mixed in some Mexican flair with a live Mariachi band and Mexican food for dinner which really made for a fun combination to go with the 1940’s theme.

It’s short… but a fun one to watch all the same. Enjoy 🙂

Reception Location: The Felt Mansion

  1. John, This is breathtaking…we have watched over and over again and are still in tears. We had the highest expectations for your work, but some how you seemed to amaze us more than we could have ever imagined. This is absolutely beautiful and we never dreamed our video would actually resemble a 1940’s movie. The color and the flicker to look like an old film…you are a genious. This is way too much of a tease!!!!

    Anxiously Waiting,
    Joe and Michelle TenBrink

  2. I’ve watched the “teaser” three times and cannot believe how beautiful it is. I simply love it. Terrific work.

  3. John, I watch this over and over in anticipation of the entire video. Looking back at pictures of my parents wedding which was part of Michelle and Joe’s inspiration for the 1940’s themed wedding, it is amazing how you have captured the essence of that era!! Thank you!!!

  4. Hi! I’m planning a 1940s wedding. This was beautiful! I couldn’t actually tell though and was wondering if you could tell me the colors they used for their wedding.
    It looked like black, white and maybe a brown or dark green?
