Sometimes we are forced to go about life in a different way than we would have ever originally planned.... With changing course many silver linings often rise to the surface. This was the case for Addie Patterson and Clint as they stayed the course of wedding planning through a worldwide pandemic. Changes were made, extra effort put forth in preparation, moving targets were hit, and the two became one...
The ceremony was originally set for a historic downtown Greenville <SC> church with reception to follow at one of the finest private clubs in America (John Knox Pres and Poinsett Club). The altered plan allowed the couple to enjoy a more intimate weekend with family and friends as they got ready in the house where Addie Patterson grew up, married in a neighbor’s gorgeous back yard with reception to follow back at AP’s childhood residence.
To experience the church at a new location was meaningful to the families. To host all the guests and the hospitality shown was nothing new for the host families. Extended family and friend groups were made comfortable and showered the bride and groom with love. Although so many words could/would describe this gathering and union – one sense was present while we filmed. One sense remained as we crafted their cinematic film… The sense of community.
Community (n): a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
This community they have magnifies the union, love, vows, and testimony shared on this day.
Not only did we get to experience each of the silver linings that were given, but we get to still move forward with the original plan as well! Addie Patterson, Clint, and families are hopeful to allow the full guest list to join in the celebration come February 2021. We cannot wait to join the even larger community in 2021 to celebrate such an amazingly sweet couple. Check back early 2021 to view our next wedding video for this perfect family!
