We always seem to have the best clients (and we know we are really lucky!) with exciting and creative work to do at The Idea Boutique, a full-service marketing and advertising firm and the publisher of VIE. Celebrating twenty years in business this year, The Idea Boutique has taken on some of its biggest and most challenging projects yet.
We recently finished staging, filming, and photographing a wedding for the Mexico Beach Community Development Council that will be aired on television and online as a commercial and music video showcasing the beauty of Mexico Beach as a wedding and vow renewal destination. It was one of our largest video productions to date, with a great deal of planning and organization involved—the shoot was rained out several times before we finally got a sunny beach day in April, but it was well worth the wait!
With a romantic storyline, fantastic models, and white-sand beaches serving as a backdrop for our video producer, Ben Rosenau, photographer Romona Robbins, and their teams to capture it all, we couldn’t be more pleased with how the day unfolded, and we are excited to share the video online at MexicoBeach.com and on television throughout the United States and Canada. Locals Lauren and Bo Spring—our “supposed” newlyweds, who have actually been married for years—are busy penning and recording an original song to accompany the video, telling a love story born on the Unforgettable Coast.
