A tour of The Gardens at Serenity Cove

Another example of non-wedding work. This is a walking tour of the Gardens at Serenity Cove, a beautiful wedding and event venue in Goochland County, Virginia. The Gardens feature a hundred rhododendron and more than 300 azaleas. The gardens are delightful and filled with humorous and whimsical figurines, decorations and compositions. Each time you walk through the gardens you will discover a new treasure that you had never before noticed!


Elizabeth and Jason

Spoiler alert!! I made this video NOT as a paid professional but as a guest, shooting from a pew in the church, behind other guests, with a small handheld video camera. This is NOT what a video would look like if you hired me! I wasn't the official videographer for my niece's wedding, but… the mother of the bride liked THIS video better than the paid video that another company made, so I'm including it for bragging rights!
