2018 In Review
Updated: Jan 21
We're 2 months into 2019, but we're still riding high from all of the fun we had in 2018.
Last year we produced some of our best work to date. We had incredible couples to work with, that allowed us to get personal with their wedding films, and exciting documentary projects. It's so hard for us to choose our favorite film from the year, each film holds a special place in our hearts, but some definitely stand out.
Ben + Dani | The Acre Orlando
Ben + Dani's wedding stands out as a milestone for Aqueous Films. Their wedding was so personal, and they were so open to showing their vulnerability with us. Also, it held a deeper meaning to us because, after all, it was Ben + Dani's wedding!
For those of you who don't know, we share a office with Ben & Oxenfree! Ben works as a shooter on most of our weddings, Christian works with Ben on his shoots, and I get to produce for both of their companies. If Ben + Dani's wedding film didn't come out as great as it did, I am very positive Ben would never let Christian live it down.
Another part of Ben + Dani's wedding that stood out was their Drunk History video! It was a hit, and we're itching to do more!
Brendan + Kelly | The Treasury on the Plaza
When I talk to Christian about Brendan + Kelly's big day the first thing he mentions is how much fun it was. In fact, the first thing Kelly ever said to Christian was, "our wedding is going to be a party." It definitely translates to the video!
This was the first wedding film to be put together after I was hired, so it holds a special place in my heart. I got to see, first hand, how Christian works his magic in the edit. The excitement that Brendan + Kelly had when they received their first cut matched the excitement after the final cut.
Taylor + Travis | The Ribault Club
Okay so, Taylor + Travis's wedding is one of those weddings that we will never, ever forget. It felt like we were capturing the wedding day of friends we've had for years. The ceremony was beautiful, their letters were breathtaking, and the reception was incredibly fun!
We also were lucky enough to work with one of the best planners ever! Taylor + Travis had Francesca, of The Eventful Gals, planning their very special day, and she knocked it out of the park. Francesca is a killer planner, and she's always sharing her knowledge on her Instagram. You NEED to follow her!
Kristie + Nick | Walt Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
Kristie + Nick came to Aqueous Films and trusted us with their wedding film. This was our very first Disney Fairytale Wedding, and it definitely didn't disappoint! Leading up to their wedding, Christian talked frequently with Kristie + Nick about details and any question or request they had. By the time the wedding came, they were all so comfortable together making capturing the video so easy.
Paola + Jesse | Cross Creek Ranch
These two were so incredibly sweet. Their love for each other was so clear in every moment of the entire day, and in our conversations with them before. Paola + Jesse had so many special touches included in their day, like showcasing their pets, a ferret named Loki and a dog called Finn. (Shoutout to their new addition, Bean!) The most memorable moment was when Jesse surprised Paola by singing a song for her during the ceremony.
Cedar Key: City at the End of the Road
In August, we worked in collaboration with The Smithsonian & The City of Cedar Key to create a documentary about the resilience of the community. We spent 4 days in Cedar Key capturing footage and interviewing locals, and many more hours editing and perfecting this film. The film debuted in Cedar Key in October, and has since been viewed more than 50k times on Facebook!
In 2018, we grew literally and figuratively by learning new things, and making new friends! We want to keep this same energy flowing into the new year. We can't wait to see what 2019 has in store!
