Naomi Reichard sent Bear In Motion an inquiry and stated that her and two of her sisters would be getting married on the same day. I thought it might be a typo or we just misunderstood her. We decided to set a time to talk on the phone and sure enough, it was true! Three sisters were to be married on the same day! As a cinematographer and storyteller, I immediately started thinking of the logistics and how we would be able to properly tell the story of three separate weddings, six individuals and their families, all coming together on one day. Even with the added pressure and some other professionals saying "you're crazy to take that wedding," there was no way we could pass up a chance to tell such a unique story.
We met up with the Reichard sisters, Hannah, Naomi and Elisabeth along with their fiances Mike, Caleb and Hunter before the wedding. We had a blast filming a pre-wedding shoot in Hamilton, New York.
The wedding went off without a hitch! Bear In Motion brought a crew of five and each couple had their own photographers (a total of 10 photographers and cinematographers)! SWANK by design, the wedding coordinator, was a pleasure to work with and kept everything moving. Elevated Events had everyone on the dance floor all night. Caleb Brown, one of the grooms actually made all the tables and benches used at the wedding. Way to go, man! The tables were topped with gorgeous flowers by Floribunda Designs and everything was brought together with amazing artwork by Adirondack Ink.
