Good morning ladies and gents.

Today we want to share our newest addition to the Film Gallery with you guys – a beautifully shot wedding film by ILC Films, with a really sweet love story behind it.

Anyone who’s ever struggled with the pressures of a long-distance relationship will just fall head-over-heels with Johnna and Justin and that’s before you clap eyes on their elegant Austin wedding at Barr Mansion.

We’ll let Alison Chang, Editor of ILC Films to tell you more about this very special wedding…

Johnna and Justin were married on a beautiful mansion on the outskirts of Austin that was full of Southern charm.

Johnna is a beautiful bride and the details of the day were stunning, but what we loved the most about their wedding is learning about their unique love story.

Johnna and Justin lived in different cities and met by chance at a work conference. Soon afterwards, they decided to be in a long distance relationship, separated by almost 500 miles.

But they were so in love with each other that Justin once, on a business trip, took an 8-hour “love road” detour just to see Johnna!

Their wedding is truly an example of how love can conquer the distance!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the backyard ceremony, those old Southern mansions are so atmospheric! And the shot of both of them opening their gifts at the same time is so creative and clever, don’t you think? I know a lot of couples are going to pinch that idea for themselves!

Thanks so much to ILC Films and of course the amazing, (and distance-defying!) Johnna and Justin for sharing this sweet wedding film with us.

Head to our dedicated Film Gallery for more beautiful love on film.
