Best of Weddings 2017

Faith vs. Fear

It’s here! Our best of weddings post for 2017! What an incredible year it has been! Looking back now, it’s clear this year was marked by many steps faith for us.

Matthew took the huge leap of faith and quit his job to devote his full attention to Matt Rouse Films. And then, just recently in November, I quit my job to be able to work alongside Matthew to further grow our business.

We desperately needed community in our lives, so we started a married couples home group that meets every other Monday night. What a blessing it has been to have other people to do life with!

We started blogging weekly, being more active on social media and creating a monthly email to share what we’ve been up to and what’s coming up next. 

We sat down and really thought through how we can best love and serve our clients, which led to revamping a lot of our client experience. One of those the things we added was creating a client experience guide to send our couples after they book.

Early on we decided that our business would be marked by faith and not fear. It can be scary to step out and do something we’ve never done.  And it can be easy to get bogged down with all the “what if” questions.


Because we stepped out in faith, we got to experience our best year ever! We booked more weddings and had more fun than ever before. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, we felt fulfilled.

As we continue to walk in faith, I have no doubt our work, our client experience, our business as a whole will continue to thrive!

Best Of Weddings 2017

At the beginning of 2017 Matthew and I prayed for 8-10 weddings, and the Lord blessed us with 11 awesome couples! (The Lord is always doing immeasurably more and exceeding our expectations!)

So, we want to say a special thank you to our couples!

This year would NOT have been as much fun or as fulfilling without you guys. We’re thankful for new friendships and new memories made with each of you. We loved filming your weddings, but it’s even more fun to watch you guys thrive in your marriages! We hope you cherish your films and that they help strengthen your marriages down the road.

Enjoy this short film we put together of our favorite moments with each of you this year!
