Stephanie + Kyle | Marry Your Best Friend

{EJ} From the moment Kaleb and I arrived to the Grand Bohemian on the morning of Stephanie + Kyle’s wedding, we knew it would be a great day. All of our correspondence had been through email and text until then, and though we had yet to meet face to face, the minute Steph saw us, she popped out of her makeup chair and gave us the biggest hugs as if we’d known each other for years. “I’m SOOOO excited to have you guys here!!!” Even now, I smile thinking about that moment. Stephanie + Kyle, and their family are not only beautiful, but they are some of the kindest and most genuine people you’ll ever meet. They are the reason we love what we do.

We took a risk beginning this film with an inside joke. It started as a joke between Stephanie’s parents, however, it’s quickly spread not just through Steph + Kyle’s wedding day, but now to other KEJ brides. We simply couldn’t resist including it so everyone knows where it came from. Thank you Mr. McNatt! #nocrying 😀 lol

We’re honestly a little sad to finish this edit because we’ve enjoyed the editing SO much! Since the day we shared their teaser film, we’ve had multiple friends, family, and professionals ask us about the wedding with “the pretty blond” hahaha. We then get to brag about Steph + Kyle’s amazing friendship, how kind and welcoming they were to us, their awesome laughs and great sense of humor, the unbelievable journey of their love, and their beautiful family. There are so MANY people eager to see this film because the love they share is SO captivating. On many occasions we were overwhelmed in our editing suite. Kaleb + I are big on words and use them mostly to tell the story. However for Stephanie + Kyle’s film, there were many moments during our edit where we felt the imagery of them together was enough. There’s an undeniable connection between these two and it was so awesome to witness, and a true honor to capture. We say it all the time. “Marry your best friend.”
