What Averi and Chris had to say about their film:
We love it! Thank you so much for all your work Craig. It was a pleasure working with you!
Why is this film unique to the couple?
Averi and Chris love the outdoors, so that was going to be a big part of their film. Norskedalen is an awesome outdoor venue in La Crosse, Wisconsin. It provided a lot of opportunity to film great b-roll of their fields, river, wildlife and the rustic houses, which allowed us to really set the scene well for this film.
This is also a great example of a "Wedding Weekend" package. Since Chris has family that lives on the river, we decided it would be fun to take a boat ride to the rehearsal dinner. Originally thinking it was how we were going to open the film, we decided it fit better at the end. We wanted to show them riding into the new part of their life together, in adventure.
