New Orleans is a popular destination for people from across the globe. Many travel for “work”, the cultural experience, and celebrations of all kind including parties, festivals, and weddings. One aspect of our company’s history is that we have never provided video production services for weddings. Now, we have nothing against those who provide wedding productions. Rather, our focus always geared toward the content creation for commercial and corporate clients. Then, we received a phone call that began with, “excuse me if I’m laughing randomly, I’ve got baby squirrels running around me“. Easy to say, a unique introduction.
Laura Holt and Christopher Brown were excited to celebrate their lives together in a place that they loved, New Orleans. They were looking for a way to showcase their New Orleans destination wedding festivities with their friends and loved ones, yet traditional wedding video production companies did not excite them; therefore, they turned to implicted to create a feature video of the New Orleans celebration.
There was a dilemma, however. We don’t typically ‘do’ weddings, so we gladly referred the couple to partner companies that frequently produce wedding videos. Luckily, they didn’t want traditional wedding videography companies to create the video for them. Instead, they wanted us at implictedMEDIA, a New Orleans creative content video production company, to capture and produce the experience. They wanted it produced in a way that we do for many of our corporate or commercial video clients. Naturally, this intrigued us.
THE FOLLOW THROUGH
After much discussion, we got to know Laura and Christopher. Their unique and longstanding relationship paired with their welcoming and joy-of-life personalities made for a great story. We’re proud to have become characters in that storyline.
Part of our agreement is that instead of calling it a ‘wedding video’ we refer to the video as a ‘celebration of life and love event‘; therefore, holding true to our wedding-less tenure was still possible. The honor truly was ours to be able and create this vision for them.
The writing of ‘I always loved you‘ is the actual handwriting of Christopher to his wife, Laura. Throughout their decades of friendship and love, together and separate, this statement has always and continues to hold true.
THE HAPPY ENDING
Not only is the Holt-Brown Celebration one of our favorite projects to have worked on. As a result, we’re lucky to now have Laura and Christopher as friends.
