Jenna + Brendan

Jayme BasilComment

We’ve filmed quite a few weddings at this point. And in doing so, we’ve heard many a speech. Sure, some aren’t great, some are really funny, and some make us tear up. But we know not to get our hopes up for all the speeches to be perfect. That’s just a silly high expectation. An expectation that Jenna and Brendan’s loved ones exceeded! Everyone who spoke of the newlyweds had only the best things to say and gave us all a look into Jenna and Brendan’s full love story. Because of this, I wanted the music to be subtle and not distract from their story. It really shouldn’t have been a surprise, though, that the speeches were great. All throughout the day, I saw more support and positivity than Chris Traeger (of Parks & Rec) himself could generate. It was amazing and truly a testament to the newlyweds and the type of people they attract in their lives. Jenna and Brendan are the sweetest couple who light up in one another’s presence. Who am I kidding, just watch the cinematic and you’ll see! Here’s to my post patient couple of all-time, Mr + Mrs Bilski! And here’s who helped to make their wedding day so beautiful:
