Justine + Matt | Early Mountain Vineyard | Highlight Film

Engagement Sessions, Wedding Films

This was the perfect day to share Justine and Matt’s Highlight Film from their wedding day. Why?!? Hunter is heading back to Early Mountain today to capture another Highlight Film for one of our couples. We love it there!

Justine and Matt have been together for 5 years. They had an amazing proposal story in Italy. Justine explained it like this in her questionnaire to us.

“In July of 2017, we took a trip to Italy. First , we explored Rome then took a train to Sorrento. Upon arriving in Sorrento, we went to visit I Giardini Di Cataldo which was a famous lemon garden know for making homemade organic limoncello. While exploring the property and taking lots of pictures of course, we stumbled upon a group of women taking pictures for a wedding. Matt then asked if they would return the favor and take a photo of us. To Justine’s surprise, Matt put his phone on video. As he approached me, I was ready for our picture; he got down on one knee and said the most beautiful words and asked me to be his wife. Italy held a very special place in my heart as my grandmother’s side of the family was from Naples, Italy. The center stone that sits inside my ring is my grandmother’s stone adding even more significance to the place Matt had chosen to propose. Later that night we enjoyed a spectacular Italian dinner. I ate linguini and clams (a favorite of my grandma’s) and we celebrated with limoncello.”

There were SO many incredible moments through out this whole day. Several times where I was definitely moved to tears. Justine’s mom had recently passed away, and they did such a beautiful job honoring her through out the entire day. Her bouquet had a locket on it of her mother and grandmother. There was also a chair dedicated to her at the Ceremony. Justine also held her mother’s wedding photo for some photos with her same hat she wore. That is early in the film.

We were beyond blessed to capture these special memories for Justine and Matt! Make sure to not miss the end of the film during the daddy/daughter dance! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place! Oh and YES everyone agrees Matt looks just like Vin Diesel haha!!!
