Our Story – 3 Ring Weddings

When Nick and I began the wedding planning process, we were unsure of some things. There are a lot of details that go into planning a wedding, and while some seem of absolute priority and importance (choosing the date, the place, the people), other things seem less so. As we talked about whether we’d like to hire a videographer or not, we went back and forth. Neither of us particularly loves to be in front of the camera, so it seemed like something we could forego.

I am so thankful we made a different decision! From beginning to end, the team at 3 Ring Weddings has been amazing! They offered a take on wedding videography that we didn’t find with other vendors, they treated us like family right away, and they were extremely pleasant and professional. Because we wanted our wedding day to focus on the story God has given us to tell, it was amazing to have the option of a same-day edit of our wedding video to share. They told our story beautifully. It is clear that they listened to us and took great care to give us a keepsake that we will treasure forever.

So, if you ever know anyone who’s in the market for a wedding videographer, I highly recommend 3 Ring Weddings! We couldn’t be happier with all they did for us!

Now, having said all of that, we’d love to share “Our Story” with you! The video is below, but you can also check out their sweet blog post here. You can also check out our Same Day Edit and our Cinematic Trailer here.

Thanks for taking the time to hear our love story! The Lord has been so gracious to us and we just can’t stop telling the tale!

Wedding Rehearsal

Nick and I were so blessed to have our friends and family travel to Rome, GA to take part in our wedding. For the Giardino family, that meant coordinating travel from Kentucky, Seattle, Illinois and Oklahoma. That’s no small feat! We were so honored by everyone who made the time and made the trip.

Since it doesn’t often happen that we are all in the same place at the same time, we took the opportunity to capture some family photos the night of our rehearsal. We asked the wonderful and talented ladies of Alight Photography to capture these moments for us. (You can check them out and read the blog here.

The song in the video is one I wrote for a rehearsal dinner several years ago, so it seemed an appropriate soundtrack for our photo collection. I was asked to write a song from the groom’s parents as a blessing the night before the wedding. “Choose Love”, no matter what else comes, always choose love.

Have a blessed and wonderful day!

The Giardino Journey

On July 6th, 2013, Nick and I began our journey together as husband and wife. We are so excited about the Love Story the Lord has written for us and we are creating this page to share it with anyone who will listen.

And, here’s a little preview of July 6th:
