Wedding Video | Merrimon Wynne in Raleigh, NC


by Raleigh, NC Wedding Filmmaker, Tyler Booth

Fun fact: I was born in Raleigh, NC. So again, my traveling work takes me somewhere special.

Jenna & Kyle are from West Virginia, but decided to get married in Raleigh so they could have their wedding at the historic Merrimon-Wynne house. I love that this historic home was turned into a wedding venue. I feel like things like that need to happen in West Virginia!

Since this was converted into a wedding venue, it’s easy to host any event. There are plenty of indoor rooms providing options such as a smaller event, portraits, or as Jenna and Kyle used them – a space for the perfect cocktail hour to get out of the hot sun.

Two of my favorite things about this wedding: 1) Jenna and Kyle had a kids table that had fun activities for the little ones to do. 2) For dessert they offered the option of ice cream. The ice cream was home made from Two Roosters, and they came to the venue in the form of a food truck. Food trucks need to be more of a thing at weddings! They’re alway a big hit and provide your guests with a bit of interaction they might not otherwise have.

Destination Wedding in Costa Rica
by WV Filmmaker, Tyler Booth I video weddings in West Virginia often, but it's always fun & inspiring to travel somewhere new to document a love story. Amy & Franklin aren't strangers to traveling, so when they got engaged they had their sights set on a tropical vibe. Costa Rica was the perfect romantic and adventurous location. This West Virginia-turned-Costa Rica wedding took place in Manuel Antonio at Hotel La Mariposa, located on the highest peak in the area with views of the mountains as well as the ocean. I think my favorite thing about destination weddings, and elopements in general, ...
Seattle Wedding Film | Within Sodo
by Seattle Filmmaker, Tyler Booth Jenna & Meridian invited me to Seattle to film their wedding and I'm so glad I was able to be part of this celebration! For starters, Seattle is one of my favorite cities & since I don't shoot many urban weddings anyway this was really special. We started filming at the Palladian Hotel in downtown Seattle where the couple was getting ready. This also where the first look took place. The first look is one of my favorite parts of this wedding film because of the audio! I'm not always able to capture audio during the first look that flows with the video, but when I ...
Jess & Matt’s Louisville Kentucky Wedding
by WV Videographer, Tyler Booth This Louisville, Kentucky wedding took place at Farmington Historic Plantation. This was a great wedding because the couple was so in love and weren't afraid to show it all day long. That's the type of day you want to capture on video. I'm lucky to shoot many couples who are head over heels for each other and that's exactly what you need - that undeniable chemistry. I think my favorite thing about this wedding was the fact that Jess + Matt chose to 1) have a first look and 2) write private vows to one another. It turned out to be so touching & a great moment for them ...
