Laura+John….Naptime?

Okay, he was really tired.  But falling asleep? Really? On what should be one of the most exciting days of your life?

John was just really tired. So he took a nap.  He might have snored a little.  It was the perfect way to throw Laura off – she didn’t at all suspect that he would be proposing to her in a couple hours.

His plan worked!

Laura said ‘yes!’

But there’s more to the story (isn’t there always?)…

It’s all part of their Wedding Movie (see it here!) that Laura and John shared with family and friends at their wedding reception.

And it’s just one of hundreds of proposal stories that are included in the Wedding Movies you’ll find on our ‘See For Yourself’ page right here!

Kacie+Logan – Hunting for deer or a wife?…

Here in Nebraska, it is a natural occurrence for men (and women!) to go deer hunting.

Well it was finally time to go home on that fall weekend that Logan was looking forward to – but not for the reasons that you might think.  Was there going to be a deer in his sights?

Or something else?

Kacie and Logan woke up early that morning to put on their camo, grab the ammo, and get out in the field.  Once they arrived, Kacie was in charge of looking through the binoculars – Logan says he doesn’t have the best eyesight…

As she scopes out the deer trails in the distance looking for some movment, or maybe even
some antlers, Logan asks about some sort of sign he sees way off yonder.  Kacie adjusts her binoculars to see it, while Logan gets down on one knee.

Can you guess what happens next?

It’s all part of their Wedding Movie (see it here!) that Kacie and Logan shared with their family and friends at their wedding reception.

Courtney+Ben – Too Much of a Chicken…

 

It was Ben’s dream to hang out with Courtney.  He knew he liked her. But how to let her know…..

Then Ben had an idea.  Take her to breakfast!

You see, they were both college kids.  And what better way to start a day of learning than with a good hearty breakfast?  So that’s what Ben did.  He told Courtney he would take her to breakfast before his morning class.  And so that’s what he did.

Every morning.

What Ben never told Courtney was that he did not actually have a morning class.
Instead, he just woke up every morning to go to breakfast with Courtney…. and then
went back to his dorm room to get some more sleep before his actual first class.

So why not take her out on a real date?  Guess you’ll have to watch their Wedding Movie to find out!  And you can see more Wedding Movies (and maybe breakfast stories?) right here!

That “One Word’….

It’s just a white board and a blue dry erase marker.  

We’re not asking for a 500-word essay with complete sentences and an annotated bibliography (does anybody use those anymore? Or for that matter, does anyone other than our high school English teacher remember what they are?)

So, why is it so tough to describe your future mate with such brevity?  
We’ll give you a minute.

Okay, time’s up. You say you’ve got it. Oh wait, almost. It’s on the tip of your tongue.

Uhhhhhhh……

Hint: Make sure it’s something easy to spell…

Over the years, we’ve had lots of fun handing our brides and grooms that whiteboard.
And although they’ve come up with some great words, sometimes the fun is just getting something written….

 

 

Traci + Trevor – Silence is Golden . . .

Know that feeling when you see someone you’re not really expecting to see in that specific place?  Does it sometimes leave you speechless?

That’s what happened to Traci.

Trevor says it was actually about 2 minutes of silence.  A full 2 minutes!

She was very shocked to see him in Denver.  He was supposed to be in Lincoln.
This was her ‘girls-only’ Independence Day get-a-way with a friend from college. But as she waited at a park for another friend to show up, she heard someone call her name.  When she turned around, there he was.  All dressed up, down on one knee.  And yes, she was speechless.

You probably already know the rest…. the ring went on her finger and she did eventually say ‘yes.’ Fast forward a year or so and it was time for the Traci and Trevor’s big day. You can hear them tell this story – and more stories – in their Wedding Movie above!

 

 

A great team!

Don’t these two make a great team?

Talan and Caleb were pretty excited to be the ring bearers at one of our weddings this fall. They did a great job too – even while we captured them on video having some fun with groom Derek (bride Kenzie was in hiding!).

Here’s the deal. We ‘d like to ask you a favor.
You see, we’re growing. And that means we need more people on our team.

Maybe that’s you.  Have you been hiding your creativity inside?  Ready to share it with the world and help us create not just great Wedding Movies… but awesome experiences for our brides and grooms?

Or maybe it’s not you… maybe it’s someone you know.  It would be awesome if you’d just share this with them. Even better, just send them to www.TeamWeddingStorytellers.com.

And in case you’re wondering, exactly who are we looking for?
Storytellers.  Someone with a creative eye.
Do you have to be an expert with a video camera?
No. We can teach you.
Do you have to be energetic and eager to learn?
Absolutely!  But you gotta be willing to have a little fun too.

Oh, one more thing.  Merry Christmas!  And Happy New Year!

 

 

 

 

 

Katie + Brett – Wedding Morning Fun!

This last weekend was the Fourth of July – and a great day for Katie and Brett to get married!

The sun was shining, the fireworks were exploding, and the knots were being tied. But Brett decided to squeeze in every single bit of fun he could as an unmarried man – even if it meant dirt bike riding, hours before the ceremony.

The groom and his groomsmen tore up the pasture behind their house, riding bikes, four wheelers, and even playing golf!

We love getting to see the wedding party enjoying the day, and it always makes for a great memory to show in the Wedding Movie.

Click the video above to see the guys’ highlights from the day, or click here to see Katie and Brett’s full Wedding Movie!

Megan + Matt – Backwards

Megan and Matt met a while back on Nebraska’s favorite online dating site – Farmers Only (dot com)! Matt thought Megan looked gorgeous in her pictures (but then again, those could always be “photocopied”) and the deal was sealed when they met for their first date!

After a dinner at Lazlo’s and a movie, the couple became best friends. Matt says he knew Megan was the one when he took her to the farm, and she knew a thing or two about the equipment.

Megan knew Matt was the one when she saw how he acted with her son – his “pretty blue eyes” also helped 🙂

The two describe their relationship as “backwards.” They already have a house and a beautiful family. What the two said they were looking forward to most was officially uniting their family.

Megan and Matt’s story is one of hundreds of perfectly unique stories that we get the opportunity to tell. To hear the rest of it, and to see some highlights from their beautiful wedding day, click their Wedding Movie above!

Katee + Grant – The Amazing Engagement

On their first date, Katee took Grant on a walk… that lasted 4 hours. Needless to say, he wasn’t that prepared, but he pushed through! They talked about everything, and hit it off right away. So, when it came time to pop the question, Grant got back at Katee and planned an impressive proposal: The Amazing Engagement.

As some of you may know, The Amazing Race involves a team of two people, travelling the world in search of clues to a final destination. Inspired by this idea, Grant set up 6 pit stops – complete with clues – for Katee. Thankfully, he just stuck to the Fremont area.

In this one-of-a-kind proposal, Katee spent two hours visiting spots of importance to the couple: family members’ houses, the church, the YMCA,etc.

She figured out clues, went to destinations, and even completed challenges! All in true Amazing Race fashion!

The journey ended at a dock, with Grant waiting patiently on one knee. She said yes 🙂

At The Wedding Storytellers, we love a good story, and The Amazing Engagement is a perfect example! Click the video above to watch the rest of Katee and Grant’s one of a kind story – you won’t be disappointed!

Britanny + Brett – He was kind of annoying…

Britanny really never paid any mind to Brett in high school. In fact, we have a direct quote from her claiming she “kind of hated him.” (Sorry, Britanny, we have it all on video!)

To a freshman like Britanny, Brett was just the annoying senior at one act practice, always on his phone and never paying any attention. Apparently, all the two needed was a little time!

Fast forward to after graduation when Brett was out of college, back on the farm, and Britanny was working at the bar on main street. Her “hatred” quickly turned into a pretty big crush. The two started spending more time together… and the rest is history.

Click on the video above to see the rest of their unique story – keep an eye out for Brett’s Valentine’s Day proposal. He definitely kept Britanny on her toes!
