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.
