Our highlight films are a high energy, exciting way of reliving the wedding day in just a few short minutes. Our guiding principles apply. We want you to know the couples in our films. We want you to laugh, to tear up, and get excited about someone else’s wedding! Take a look, a listen, and you’ll see the difference…
Madeleine & Grayson
We traveled to Myrtle Beach, SC to the Dunes club for the beautiful wedding. The bride & groom decided ahead of time that they definitely didn’t want to do interviews or read letters on camera but we knew they were writing their own vows which is perfect for the story. As the wedding ceremony started, dark clouds and wind were blowing in. We knew that if we didn’t get these vows, we would have no real content so great mic placement saved the day.
Here’s what Madeleine’s mom said when we delivered the film…
“We live in Myrtle Beach and i thought that might be a problem since Bill lives in Columbia. It certainly was not. I met him the day of the wedding and I was crazy with last minute details. He came in and just went to work. I didn’t have to tell him a thing. The end result was just amazing!! I can’t get enough of it!!! Love love love it!! Thanks Bill and Jonathan for the beautiful memories you’ve preserved for us💕”
Erica & Wes
Erica & Wes have been together a long time. It’s so great when a couple is that comfortable with each other. We talked a bit about how we would get their story on the wedding day. There wouldn’t be any toasts at the reception and they were uncomfortable with interviews or reading letters. So, we had the idea of interviewing their dads. The dads turned out to be awesome interviews and just exactly the right balance for the film. They weren’t expecting any dancing. It was just a few close friends and family on the farm and I think the video reflects that so well. What a beautiful sunset…
Here’s what Erica said when she got her film…
“Oh I love it Bill!! Thank you so much!!! Yes, I’d love to share it!
You nailed it, I can’t stop watching it. Thank you Thank you”
Lyndey & Peyton
We worked with Peyton the first time about a year before the wedding. He did some testimonials at Heathwood Hall. He would check in with us every few months to make sure the date was open. They were very excited to read their letters and do interviews with us to get their story. Their church was extremely restrictive. We weren’t even allowed to shoot inside the church during the ceremony. It’s important to work with the venue and get something the bride and groom love…
Here’s what Peyton said when we delivered the film…
“Wow Bill. This is absolutely incredible. Seriously. I have nothing but amazing things to say about you and Jonathan. Please send all prospects to me and I will sway them very easily. You guys were most likely the best money we spent. I’m so glad we didn’t pass on the opportunity.”
Leslie & Matt
The Old Edwards Inn is everything we’ve ever heard that it was. One of the most beautiful venues we’ve ever seen. It’s so great that in this beautiful place, the couple and the families are what make it amazing. This was a cool rainy day and it made the atmosphere so perfect. We loved working with Kallima Photography and We Tie the Knots.
Erin & Jordan
We love stories like this. They met when they were 14. Still just as much in love. Still enjoying being together. Jordan is so funny with all of his contracts. We knew going into this wedding that we’d have great content from the rehearsal dinner toasts. We ended up doing a little impromptu interview with Jordan about his many contracts which added the exact right amount of background. Here’s what Erin said about the experience…
“Hey!!!! Yes it is so amazing!! It moved me to tears. I’m so incredibly happy with how beautiful it is. Y’all did an absolutely amazing job!!! Thank y’all so so so much!! I FaceTimed my mom last night so she could watch it and she loved it!! I’ve watched it so many times and it makes me so happy each time. So how do I get to post it? Gotta brag on how great y’all are. “
We take all of the elements of your wedding day and create a short film that is engaging, exciting and tells your story; the way it should be told. We use our vast experience with weddings to find those stories and the storytellers are in your life. There is no more complete way of capturing who you are at this time in your life and preserving history. Notice how much you get to know the couples in these films. We are not just documenting your wedding day. We’re making a wedding film…
Amy & Taylor
It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful couple than Amy & Taylor. We actually didn’t get to meet them until the rehearsal dinner. And, boy were we stunned! Not only a gorgeous venue with the Westin Hilton Head, but these two are so in love and so rooted in the lord. It’s inspiring to see these two close families come closer to each other. There are some weddings that inspire us, and this is one of them. We also got to meet Mari Pillmore and work with her for the first time, which was so awesome.

Courtney & Joel
We hear this story so often. They met when they were just kids and somehow knew it was right. The love and joy from these two families coming together is amazing. It’s a privilege for us to be a part of such a wedding weekend. For Courtney & Joel we were hired to cover the rehearsal dinner as well, so we got a lot of insight into their families and friends. Thanks to all of the fantastic vendor team. Joshua Aaron Photography, The Leitner House , First Baptist Columbia, Southern Way Catering, 701 Whaley
Kristin & Len
Our favorite weddings are those with personality and these guys have so much personality. They have a great story and we are so happy we get to tell it. We met Kristin several years ago when she worked for the Hilton Columbia and have always stayed in touch. The was a gorgeous fall day at The Millstone at Adam’s Pond. Her great vendor team included… White House Wedding Flowers Southern Way Catering Partytime DJ’s Meagan Warren Weddings
WHO ARE YOU?
Your friends and family think you’re great together. You have dogs that you raise like children. You laugh more together than when you’re apart. We look for couples that are madly in love. They have this crazy world swirling around them and all they want is to be married to each other. It’s a pretty simple and classic story really. We look for those great relationships in your life.

WHO ARE WE?
We are Cinema Couture. We are here to knock your socks off! We have filmmakers and editors on our team with a single focus to make the right wedding film for you.
This is not a “one size fits all” type of process. We take every wedding as its own project. The name Couture means one of a kind, custom made for you.
The most important thing to understand about our process is we guarantee you’ll be blown by your final film, no matter what. We won’t rest till you’re deliriously happy.
We’ve been in the wedding business for over 13 years. That means we’ve seen almost everything, and can make a great wedding film in every scenario.
We’ve worked in restrictive churches, in the pouring rain, on beaches with 20 mph winds, and absolutely nothing phases us. Working with us is so easy and comfortable, it’s like we’re old friends.
We have a singular commitment: you will love your film!
Our team makes it our commitment, whether it’s in production on the wedding day or in editing weeks after that your film must be right.
We bring all of our years of technical expertise as well as experience with hundreds of couples to bringing you a film that’s right for you. And we stop at nothing to make sure it’s the best that it can be. Ask any couple that’s worked with us, and they will tell you what it has meant to them.
