Our story begins with a wistful little girl named Vanessa who collected not Barbie dolls but bridal mags. Dreaming of her happily ever after, the young-woman-with-a-love-for-all-things-nuptial set her sights on a film degree at the University of Texas in Austin with the sole intent of one day becoming a wedding videographer. Upon graduation, she did just that and launched Vanessa Berry Productions.

One year later, a boy named Brent moseyed in. This gentleman was her kindred creative spirit and shared her love for preserving history and unfolding stories. So when he swept her off her feet, she happily took his name. And a new business name: Vanessa McKellar Productions.

Two really is better than one, and their souls longed to play and work together. So the two formed The McKellars and started making films side by side. All the while balancing life with their equally free-spirited sons, Noble and Mission, in the heart of Texas. If you want to get to know them a bit more, you can watch their short vow renewal film here!

But enough about our story. Let’s dish about yours.
