A drone, yes, the unmanned aerial device that is used in military operations are the new craze in wedding videography and even photography. You may think that military devices and a wedding don’t go well together, but the view from above creates the unique and impressive shots that you are looking for.
Drones work best in large outdoor areas with open space to capture those grand, sweeping views. Here at Commellini we are located on over 200 acres of open land that gives you the perfect space to capture the breathtaking wedding pictures and video that you want.
Drones are often used in the making of your wedding video capturing the venue, decorations and shots of the bride and groom in a creative jaw-dropping way.

Consider creating a “Mood Board” on Pintrest for your wedding. This a new and creative way to help you put together your favorite decor details, colors, and theme ideas. For help on how to create a mood board, see below.
A Mood Board is a very helpful way for you to begin putting together the type of theme and vibe that you want your wedding to have. Creating a Mood Board on Pinterest is the best way to do it so it is easy to share with vendors or your event planner to help them understand what you are wanting. When creating this board, it is helpful to follow these five steps:
1. Identify your Guide Words-
Identifying guide words can help you stick with the same theme and vibe throughout the planning process.
When doing this think of the type of vibe you want to portray: Intimate, Adventurous, Vivacious, Romantic.
Then think of the type of look you want to go with that vibe: Elegant, Bohemian, Woodsy, Modern, Geometric.
2. Embrace Color & Texture-
To embrace color & texture to your wedding, start thinking what colors would go best with your theme. For instance, if you are wanting a Wistful Woodsy Romance, then you are going to want to go with deep red hues and lush greenery and possibly even velvet.
3. Select Big Decor Elements-
Selecting a big element in your wedding that you want to be the main focus is important. Big Decor Elements can be anything from your wedding arch, your sweet heart table or event your flower decor. This is the time where you take your theme, colors and elements and create common details throughout your wedding decor.
4. Identify Small Details-
Small details is really where your personality can shine through in your wedding. For instance, when your theme is Wistful Woodsy Romance you are going to want to have wooden details and hang some lights in the trees, making all the big details and small details come together nicely.
5. Consider Cohesiveness-
At this point in creating your mood board you want to take a step back look at all the pictures and colors and see if it all goes well together and if it is the way you want your wedding to look and feel. Then continue with the planning process and make your dream wedding come to life.
