Words hardly come close to explaining the emotions of the day! As you can see, Jenn is just beaming from ear to ear. And what makes this event even more memorable is the fact that Jenn worked extremely hard, for quite some time now, to take those time honored steps down the aisle.
It was a privilege and honor to be chosen to document their day, as it is with all my couples.
Please enjoy their story.
Special thanks to Brian Stephens of Green Gecko Photography www.greengeckophotography.com as well as Jaymz van Hees of Jaymz Fotografie www.jaymz.ca for helping me to capture their eventful day. It wouldn’t have been the same with out you!
here’s a quote I found and wanted to share, ~ how fitting
Whatever setbacks you encounter, don’t give up on your hopes and dreams.
Imagination is stronger than knowledge…. dreams are more powerful than facts, and hope can triumph over experience.
April 16th finally arrived for a determined Jennifer Darmon to walk down the aisle to her awaiting finance, Mike Belawetz. Historical Mackenzie Hall in Olde Sandwich Town was packed with invited guests & media to watch this feisty woman overcome adversity & make her life-long dream of walking down the aisle on her wedding day come true. With twinkling eyes & a glowing smile she looked like an angel. The energy was electric as all eyes were on the beautiful bride. When the ceremony ended Mike whisked her off the floor to the joyful applause of everyone there. It was hard to keep a dry eye while witnessing this beautiful love story unfold knowing all they had both endured. May your marriage be blessed with much love, happiness & good fortune!!!!

Another post will follow with more photos of their day.
Jennifer Darmon was Person of the Week on Diane Sawyer’s ABC News, with their story appearing on several news sites including WXYZ with Carolyn Clifford, Inside Edition, CBS,The Morning Show & a video diary on you tube. Check them out.
Most video companies will send either a representative or camera crew to your ceremony site during the rehearsal to check out placement and entrances. They’ll then be able to determine the best equipment setup and how many cameras are needed. Remember, though, that this is a wedding ceremony, not a movie set; question suggestions of more than two to three cameras.
Generally you need at least two cameras for the ceremony — one in front and one in back. The second camera also can serve as backup to a failed camera.
Provide your videographer with a copy of any restrictions your clergy may have. You may even want to schedule a meeting during which you all can discuss the rules and any exceptions that may need to be made. Consider another venue if yours has too rigid limitations and find a different videographer if you sense tenseness or hostility.
Avoid conflicts all around with a specific written contract. Make sure you and your videographer agree in writing about what his duties are and what you’re expecting for your final tape.
The contract should cover all these issues related to the job:
- Schedule of coverage
- Depth of coverage
- Features of the finished product
- Payments and contingencies
The contract might also cover who the actual cameramen will be. There’s no such thing as a standard contract, and verbal agreements aren’t binding. Put everything down on paper so you won’t have any surprises on your wedding day or afterwards.
