Marley + Keith – Marriott Marquis Wedding

We had such a lovely time working with Marley and Keith. We filmed Marley’s brother’s wedding a few years ago and just loved working with their family.  Marley and Keith met at a comedy club and comedy and laughter are at the center of their friendship and relationship. We even filmed a quick little clip during their wedding day of a little skit they do as a comedy duo Sweet Puppy. Keith’s getting ready time was a hoot and Marley had some sweet moments with her girls.

The ceremony followed a Ketubah signing and was on the roof of the Marriott Marquis. We just loved their vows and how they were such good storytellers with them. They each spoke of their feelings throughout the early time of their relationship, each adding in a bit of fun and funny to the serious and meaningful. They seem to have such a great balance of those things in their life together.

Marley’s parents gave a lovely toast to kick off the reception. After the grand entrance and first dance Marley changed into her reception dress which was covered in giant white sequins, it was so fabulous! They did some fun sunset photos and enjoyed the rest of the reception festivities.

We loved all the succulents and ferns in the floral arrangements and the figs on the cake were a nice touch. The speeches were funny as expected and Marley’s parents surprised the two with a live band for dancing. Marley and Keith not only love comedy but they love dancing as well so they got some amazing dance sets in during the band time. They danced the night away and had fun in the photobooth. This wedding was so much fun and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

From the couple: SidebySide made a beautiful wedding video for my brother and so I wanted them for my special day 4 years later. What impressed me most is that they do NOT have a cookie cutter approach. We asked for some things to be similar and some things to be different from the work they did for my brother’s wedding, and they listened carefully to our requests – providing a product that is exactly what my husband and I wanted! I highly recommend.
