Here is another fantastic wedding that was filmed by one of our talented Second Shooters, Chad Lapish. Lindsey and Kyle were married at Adaumont Farms in Trinity, NC…one of our favorite venues.

There were some incredible moments during the day (Kyle’s family heirloom diamond that he had set into a necklace for Lindsey, the killer Tag Huer that she bought for him) but the highlight for me is by far Lindsey pulling down the hill to the ceremony in Kyle’s old Chevy truck that he sold to buy her engagement ring (he had no clue!). Not sure how they found it…but it was a beautiful moment!

Lindsey and Kyle, thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your day…and what an incredible day it was!

A special thank you to Michelle Wright and her team for planning and designing a gorgeous wedding. Thanks Michelle!

This is a delayed posting of a gorgeous film…Jennifer and Scott. It was filmed earlier this year but we had to hold it under wraps until it was published in The Knot Magazine. The issue just came out and we are now free to share this film!

Jennifer and Scott had a beautiful wedding at Adaumont Farms in Trinity, NC. We love filming at Adaumont and we hope this film shows just a glimpse of how gorgeous their facilities and property are.

A special thank you to Rebecca Rose and her staff for their incredible creation on the weekend of the wedding, as well as their hard work in getting this wedding published.

Congratulations Jenn and Scott, both on your wedding AND being published in such an incredible magazine!

What an incredible couple…Matt Hardy and Reby Sky! This was a film that our talented second shooters filmed while I was away in the Middle East. I can honestly say that I am SO disappointed that I was not here for this wedding. Reby and Matt are such a unique, beautiful, and ridiculously fun couple. I believe this Highlight Film captures a tiny snippet of this dynamic couple. Congratulations Reby and Matt…you guys are awesome!

I am super excited to announce a new division of Iron Kite: IK/creative. I realized there was a need for a website to house creative expressions that were clearly unique to Iron Kite, but not necessarily part of the “business” of Iron Kite Films.

IKCreative-Logo-2

IronKiteCreative.com is just that place. There you will find a collection of films, photos, and stories that are personal expressions of Iron Kite. I hope that these pieces are as much of a blessing to you as they are to me.

Here is a short bio film for IK/creative:

We have been in the Middle East for about a month now. The longer you stay in a place, you begin to pick up on the rhythm of life and the local flow of things. It’s as if the layers peel back further and deeper with each new week. You notice the underlying beauty of a place…whereas when you first arrived, all you could see was what the culture presented on the surface.

One of the local rhythms in any culture is food. The obvious observation is how food gathers us together. At the table, strangers become lifelong friends. But the cultural rhythm of food isn’t expressed only at the table, it’s also observed in the preparation.

Main Film.Still005 bw copyThere is a flatbread shop just up the street from us. Three men and two clay ovens bake some of the best bread I’ve ever had. It’s a tiny, hole of a room that could easily be passed by in the commotion of the city. But for the locals, it’s a daily routine to stop at the window, hold up money ($0.80 for 4 pieces), and watch a lump of flour transform on the side of a clay oven.

IMG_8708 bw copyAs I watched these three men work, and saw the hundreds of pieces of bread that were sold, I remembered what Jesus said about “working for bread that perishes.”

“Don’t work for the bread that perishes but for the food that lasts for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you…I am the bread of life. No one who comes to Me will ever be hungry” (John 6:27, 35)

I’ve already quoted that passage to many people here in the Mid East. But today I felt the Lord quoting it to me. There was an emphasis on the ongoing, continuous need for “bread”…Him. We can not be satisfied by yesterday’s bread. A healthy disciple is a hungry disciple.

And like the local rhythm of life, our walk with Jesus has layers that are peeled back the longer we know Him.
