Creating a Missoula Wedding Video

View Our Wedding Packages


In early July of 2016 Bonafide Film House was lucky enough to be invited to film Lyle Wiemokly’s beautiful wedding at the gorgeous Stone Tower Estate near Missoula Montana. Lyla found us through Twitter earlier that year. She had spent some time communicating with us, making sure we were the right choice to film her Missoula wedding. She expressed that she wanted a Missoula wedding videographer that would create a cinematic wedding video for her but also document the day with unobtrusive professional coverage. After speaking with her fiancé and also speaking with a few other Missoula Brides she decided we were the right choice for her wedding.

One the wedding day arrived, Bonafide Film House got to Missoula very early to catch Lyla getting her hair done at a local hairdresser. After spending a bit of time there and catching the hairdressers doing their magic and the bride with her bridesmaids enjoy some champagne, our crew of Missoula wedding videographers headed to the venue: Stone Tower Estate.
Once we arrived, we started capturing time-lapses and aerial videography from the gorgeous venue. These shots are essential to keep the Missoula wedding video interesting. Once the time-lapses were established the crew started choreographing the ceremony, we got together with the wonderful photographers and planned how we would shoot the ceremony and not get in each others shots while we did it. Once this was all organized, the Missoula wedding videographers set up the audio equipment, put the lapel mic on the groom and got ready for the ceremony.
From here on out the rest of the day was a breeze. The beautiful ceremony was quite a fun one to film, there were tears and laughter in the same sentence, a gorgeous Montana breeze and more emotion than the guests were prepared for. At the end there were even fireworks, that one hasn’t happened since.

The team of Missoula videographers covered the rest of the day flawlessly, creating a very beautiful video in the end, that the bride and all of her friends absolutely loved.

In early August we were lucky enough to be invited to create Mandy and Corey a beautiful Big Sky Wedding Video at Rainbow Ranch near Big Sky Ski resort here in gorgeous Montana. Mandy had found us through Facebook and was very excited to find a Big Sky Wedding Videographer that was willing to work with her and be flexible while they planned her gorgeous Big Sky wedding. After speaking for hours on the phone and going over every last detail of their Big Sky Wedding, Mandy decided that Bonafide Film House was be the best choice as a videographer for her Montana wedding. Her wedding was to be held at Rainbow Ranch just down the road from Big Sky ski resort. Most of her family would be traveling in from North Dakota, so in essence she had planned a beautiful  destination wedding right here in Montana!

A couple of days before her wedding Anthony Cohen scheduled a meeting with Mandy, something we like to do with all of our clients getting married in Montana, allowing her to become very comfortable with the videography crew. They were very excited to finally meet and had a lovely cup of coffee in downtown Big Sky while we discussed how excited she was for the big wedding day.

When the big day arrived for her Big Sky Wedding, the Bonafide videographers were there bright and early. Upon arrival they went and introduced themselves. Anthony immediately started filming the hair and makeup, while Justin Kietzman started recording time lapses of the beautiful venue, Rainbow Ranch. Located right on the shore of the Gallatin River in beautiful Big Sky Montana, they couldn’t have asked for a prettier place to get married. As the day progressed, the wedding photographer and big sky videographer worked together very fluidly to create some beautiful images for Mandy.
As the ceremony approached, Justin Kietzman hid audio capture equipment in and around the arbor, making sure to not miss a thing, even with the roaring Gallatin River right behind the arbor. During the ceremony, the big sky wedding videographers gently moved around the crowd, making sure to not miss a single moment of the beautiful bonding that was happening on the side of the Gallatin River, having previously choreographed with the photographers made this part very easy.

The big sky videographers made sure to not miss a moment and Justin Kietzman jumped right in the river with the photographers.

A couple of hours after the ceremony, the bride and groom had decided to get in the river with their entire bridal party for their magic hour photo shoot. The big sky videographers made sure to not miss a moment and Justin Kietzman jumped right in the river with the photographers. All in all it was one of the most fun weddings that Bonafide Film House had in 2016 and we will never forget Mandy and Corey!
