Rebekah & Eric were married at Portofino in Clayton, North Carolina. Portofino is an awesome venue. It has stables, horses, and a beautiful setting for an outdoor wedding. Rebekah and Eric were married under a large oak tree. The audio was recorded off a soundboard set up by the DJ. I also put a microphone on Eric as a backup. It is so important to have quality audio, in addition to quality video. The vows can be heard using the microphone placed on the minister, but I always like to put a mic on the groom to get louder audio. The groom’s mic also helps pick up the vows said by the bride.
Here is Rebekah and Eric’s Wedding Montage Video:
The reception took place in the Portofino clubhouse. The venue is gorgeous. If you watch the wedding film, take time to notice the fireplace behind the father of the bride. The outdoor setting is rustic and dimly light. The wedding ceremony and reception settings really helped give the wedding film a scenic backdrop. The locations the bride and groom got ready in were very elegant. The audio from the interviews, ceremony, and reception was used to thread together the footage from the wedding ceremony and reception.
