Tivoli told us the main reason she wanted to get married at Oheka Castle was that the outdoor grounds were so beautiful. When we woke that morning, the forecast said rain, rain, rain. I must say though, she was very optimistic regardless and kept a beautiful smile the whole day.
Once we realized the rain would play a big part of the day, we immediately started to build a story around Tivoli and David’s weather updates and of course hoping all the time it would clear up for their wedding. The ceremony location at Oheka is situated in the back of the castle with the most amazing gardens behind it.
The guys started drinking heavily at 9:30am and specifically focused on a rare bottle of Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20yr bourbon. I’m pretty sure this stuff costs well over $1000 a bottle.
When making our films, we refer to a technique called “progressive storytelling” which is telling a story that progresses over time. We keep coming back to the story to find out what happens next. In this case, we all want to know what happens with the rain because we want them to get married outside. Well as we learn later in the story, the skies do clear up and the groom decides to move the ceremony outside.
