Recently, Molly & I found a wedding venue that we absolutely love. We had heard of The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms in Rockton before, but it wasn’t until this past wedding season that we finally got a chance to film there. In fact, we were able to film two weddings at Orchard Ridge Farms this year!

The quality of our wedding videos are oftentimes influenced by the location that we’re filming at. We can still make a great quality film no matter what the venue, but an amazing location certainly helps!

The first wedding that we filmed at this beautiful venue was Jena & Daniel’s sunny July ceremony & reception. We arrived at the location & got to work capturing so many special moments, as Jena got her hair & makeup done and put her dress on. The guys were getting ready just down the street at the Ironworks Hotel in Beloit, so we gathered some video clips of that, too.

As the day progressed, several reasons stuck out in our minds as to why we enjoyed filming at this venue so much. Here is a short list:

  • Spacious: This venue has so many different areas to take photos of your wedding party. While your photographer gets posed shots, we’re capturing candid interactions among your wedding party. With plenty of different options to choose from across Orchard Ridge’s 130 acres, we’re able to get a variety of beautiful shots.

  • One Location: There is so much appeal in having everything you need in one location for your entire wedding day. We love it, too - because we don’t have to be driving to different locations, it gives us more to time to be filming special moments!

  • Ceremony Shuttle: Sometimes it’s about the small details, and The Pavilion has really thought of everything. When guests arrive at the venue, they are able to ride in a shuttle up to the top of the hill where the ceremony will take place. We love that!

Jena & Daniel’s wedding was absolutely perfect, and definitely one of our favorite wedding films to date. Check it out here:

Our second wedding that we filmed at Orchard Ridge was with Tom & Corine. They got ready at the Copperstone Inn before their ceremony. The Copperstone Inn is a bed-and-breakfast located on the grounds of Orchard Ridge Farms. Corine & Tom had such a sweet “First Look” between them. Their day was so beautiful and we loved working alongside White Shutter Photography (Tom & Corine’s photographers for the day). At the reception, this couple even had a live band! Their wedding video will be coming very soon, and when we have it finished we will post it on this page.
