MOST LOVED | NORTH MARK FILMS

Say hello to one of our favorite husband + wife duos in the industry, Christopher + Olivia, the owners of North Mark Films! We met these beautiful souls a few months back when opening our creative studio, The Coterie. At the time, we were searching for local vendors who shared a similar passion for weddings to join as members and by chance these two found us instead. 

There are two teams at Celebrate Dallas, those who cry at weddings and those who don't, and those who don't can't help but tear up at the intimate moments captured by these two talented filmmakers. Christopher + Olivia were sweet enough to give us an interview this week and we can't wait for y'all to fall in love with them and their incredible work just like we did!

What five words [or a five word sentence] that would describe you and/or your company best?
Oh gosh, thats hard. I would say....passionate, cinematic, risk-takers, light-hearted, and life-lovers. 

How did you guys get into wedding videography?
By happenstance! A friend of ours was getting married, and didn't have a videographer. We had been wanting to try out hand at it, so we offered our services, and we ended up loving it! Our friends loved their film, and we got some really awesome feedback, so we decided to pursue it.

What are some tips you'd give a couple looking for a compatible videographer?
Compatibility is huge. If you are looking for a certain style of videography, I would start with your photographer. If you have a dark and moody photographer, chances are they know a videographer with the same style (same if you're looking for light and bright). My second tip would be utilizing Instagram! Never underestimate the power of searching hashtags and reaching out to other creatives for recommendations. Chances are someone knows someone. And once you find your match in a videography, trust them!

What's the most common misconception about videography?
Ah! I would have to say that a lot of people are unaware of what wedding videography has become! They imagine Uncle Joe with a camcorder, and very rough plain footage. Today we have some incredibly talented film makers working in the wedding industry, and they know how to turn your day into a compelling piece of art that you actually want to watch!

You guys do more than just video, right? What else do you offer?
Yes! We own LCB Photobooth Company on the side! With all the gorgeous weddings that we attend every year, we noticed that there was lack of quality photo booths to accompany these events. And thus, our company was born!

RECAP | CSF ICE CREAM WORKSHOP

It's always a fun day when we get to hang out with our Circle Seven Five gals!

Last month, we teamed up with Cassidy + Jordan of Circle Seven Five, to throw a fun ice cream inspired workshop at our studio, The Coterie!

The lovely ladies in attendance made their own floral ice cream cones and then made DIY from-freaking-scratch ice cream as a sweet treat! How cool is that?!

We had so much fun putting together the cute sprinkle backdrop for everyone to take their perfect instagram shot and boomerangs! Seriously, these girls are the cutest!

Thank you to Peyton Frank for the images and be sure to hop over to the Circle Seven Five website to see more about their events and membership options!

VALENTINE'S DAY MARKET | THE COTERIE

Our little studio, The Coterie, has had quite a busy month this February! We added several new members (official announcements coming soon!) and we collaborated with Little D Markets to host a super fun Valentine's Pop Up Market!

It was a day full of meeting new people from the neighborhood, shopping from some amazing local creatives, and mini romantically-themed workshops!

Coco Andre hosted a yummy Chocolate + Champagne tasting class and we taught a fun group of ladies (and one manly man!) how to make flower crowns and boutonnieres for their Valentine's dates!

Our favorite calligrapher, Ellie & Ace, even put together a cute Valentine making station with her designs!

it was a fun day full of hearts and balloons and we can't wait to team up with more local friends to make pop up markets a regular thang!

Thanks to our friend, Gabe, of Biel Events, for snapping some photos!

REWARDSTYLE HOLIDAY | THE COTERIE

The holidays may be over, but we're reliving a little Christmas cheer today and sharing our Wreath Making Workshop with the girls of RewardStyle!

We absolutely loved hosting these stylish ladies at The Coterie for their corporate holiday party. When you're as cool as these babes, a regular ol' office party just won't cut it. We pulled out all the stops and taught everyone how to make their own holiday wreaths (and sipped on plenty of wine in the process!).

Take a peek at the full gallery below!
