Lightning In A Bottle (LIB) is comprised of multi-talented videographers, whose mission is to capture each detail and special moment on your wedding day. Wedding cinematography has undergone drastic changes throughout the years and is now considered a sophisticated art form. We pride ourselves on using a unique, personalized and novel style to suit the modern-day bride and groom.
LIB was formed out of our parent company, Film Sheep, a video production and marketing company that serves clients from the Greater Philadelphia area. We saw an unmet need to document weddings and do justice to each event during the big day.
Using a documentary-style type of film-making we create a lasting memory of the first chapter in your marriage. Lightning In A Bottle means a visually stunning, original video, tailored to our couples’ personalities and vision.
Lighting In A Bottle Weddings offers competitive prices, as well as custom packages for couples working with a set budget. Feel free to contact us with specifications and we’ll try to make our services work for your special day!
In order for us to tell the story of how it all began, we must first back track many years ago to when the seeds were first planted. The year was 2004 – all the kids were donning UGGs and Abercrombie, the Eagles were heading to the Super Bowl, preppics.com was the highlight of everyone’s Monday and AOL instant messenger was making talking to girls much easier for a certain tall, skinny boy. Joe (jfxh2) instant messaged Allie (princess15006) his classic “yoo” and that set in motion a love story that would build slowly throughout the 2000s. Fast forward to 2013 in Avalon, New Jersey when Allie ran into Joe on his birthday. After another “yoo”, that conversation (this time in person) led to a date the next day at a mini golf course in Stone Harbor. Allie put on a show for 18 holes (winning easily) and Joe was smitten – the rest is history. Split apart the night before at separate friends’ weddings, Joe and Allie rendezvoused in rainy Philadelphia for the Broad Street Run. As they walked the cold and wet streets they found welcome relief in a café in Center City. Sitting on a couch, sipping java, Joe noticed the establishment was perfectly decorated, perfectly peaceful and it made all the sense to ask Allie the most important question of his life. He got her attention by acting like he had another baked good and then quickly dropped to a knee. The peace was undisturbed – she said yes.
“We were so impressed and touched by Joe’s ability to capture all the big moments and little details throughout our wedding day — he was so great to work with and really heard what was important to us and what we were looking to get out of the video. He hit the nail on the head and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect or more beautiful representation of a day that we will look back on for years to come!”
Morgan and Frank’s special day was absolutely breathtaking. Set amidst a serene, woodland setting, these two inseparable lovebirds enjoyed gorgeous views and impeccable weather as they declared their love for one another. The woodland cabin setting provided an intimate, soothing environment for the couple to affirm their unbreakable bond. The fun continued into the night as their loved ones danced, laughed, and celebrated this undying romance.

Kelley and Sean’s big city wedding was everything they hoped for. St. Thomas of Villanova provided a beautiful, traditional setting for the couple to finally tie the knot. Sean, an ex-Villanova football player, was joined by his teammates-turned-groomsmen at the altar. The after-party took place at the ever-prestigious Union League in Philadelphia, where loved ones from all over came together to congratulate Kelley and Sean. Complete with a speech from Sean’s college coach, the couple and their families enjoyed a luxurious night of love and laughter!
Megan and Dave’s wedding was one of our favorites. It was held at the beautiful Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT, one of the prettiest places we’ve been. The two of them were married outside in the sun-soaked vineyard atop the sprawling grapevines, and it could not have been more perfect! Friends and family gathered from all over to dance, laugh, and celebrate the everlasting union between these two.
