Marieke & Brent

the DIY BACKYARD WEDDING of our dreams

Marieke and Brent are two very special souls, both larger than life in their own unique way. Marieke has the sweetest personality. She's so kind, a great listener, and extremely industrious (just wait until you see how she transformed her parent's backyard and tennis court into a dreamy reception space). Brent is such a gentle giant and genuinely the nicest, most gracious guy. Plus, they're both excellent cooks, which made getting to know each other a very delicious experience.

After filming, we spent hours and hours sifting through footage and talking about our favorite moments from the wedding. Something we really appreciated was Marieke and Brent's dedication to spending time with each other, taking in the day. Because their wedding reception was held at Marieke's parents house, there were many special spots around the property that held a lot of meaning for them. We loved that. Plenty of laughs and little anecdotes were shared as Marieke and Brent gave us a tour of their family library and upstairs balcony. It was awesome to be able to watch them enjoy each other's company as bride and groom in these familiar spaces that mean so much. Very surreal!

Their entire wedding day was perfect in every way, and we think you'll see why after checking out their film. We hope you enjoy!
