Alyson & Nick | Wedding Film at Tappan Hill
My team and I photographed and filmed Alyson & Nick’s wedding at Tappan Hill in September. I love when we can capture the day in both photos and video. Our wedding films team is incredible. I couldn’t work with a greater group of creatives.
We sent the happy couple a short questionnaire after their wedding to hear more about the day, what it meant to them and what they would suggest to other couples planning their weddings. Enjoy!
Christopher Duggan Photography: If you had to choose, (I know, it’s hard!) what was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day?
Alyson: The church – walking in and the whole ceremony. Seeing Nick at the end of the aisle made me light up, and that first moment of seeing our family and friends all gathered together was so special. The ceremony felt surreal in the best possible way.
CDP: What did your friends & family gush about the most?
Alyson: Wow – everything! People are still telling us what an amazing time they had. They loved the food, the band, and the venue. And one comment we keep getting – and I think the best compliment we could get – is that you could really feel the happiness and joy throughout the day and night.
CDP: What special touches were you most excited to see in place on your wedding day?
Alyson: It was really just incredible to see how it all came together. We loved incorporating some reminders of our family – whether through photos displayed or through the items we used, like my grandmother’s garter, or a handkerchief that my mom carried on her wedding day. As recently relocated Texans, it was also great to see the display of bluebonnets we used as favors – we really wanted a favor that was unique and meaningful to us.
CDP: What is one thing you would recommend other couples consider for their wedding?
Alyson: I know everyone says this, but just make the most of every second of the day! We can’t believe how quickly it flew by. Make sure you hire the right vendors who can take care of everything and create a seamless day for you – you’ll end up regretting even just 10 minutes spent doing anything but enjoying the moment.
