Angelica + Paul || Wedding Highlight Film || University Club, Pasadena

We closed out 2019 with an amazing Nightmare Before Christmas-themed wedding for Angelica and Paul. These two were some of the sweetest, most family-centric individuals we’ve ever had the pleasure of filming. All throughout the day, the most important thing to Angelica was making sure her loved ones felt special and cared for, and you could just feel how much her family reciprocated her love in return. What better way to finish the season.

Congratulations you two, and thank you for sharing your special day with us!

Kristine + Mark || Wedding Highlight Film || MOLAA, Long Beach

It was back to Long Beach for the team for this second to last wedding of the year! From beginning to end, Kristine and Mark’s wedding was filled with beautiful, thoughtful touches honoring each of their families and the life they built together. My favorite were golden dragonflies in the bride’s bouquet and all throughout the reception venue, representing Mark’s mom. But everything about the day showcased how much this couple cares about honoring the people who’ve made the two of them the awesome couple they are today.

Happy early Christmas, hope you guys love your film, and thank you guys for being amazing!!

Jaime + Grady || Wedding Highlight Film || Ebell Club, Long Beach, CA

The E-Bell Club in Long Beach is one of my favorite venues. Nice, open light, gorgeous tile flooring, and the preferred venue for some of our most stylish couples! Grady and Jaime of course were no exception. From their beautiful courtyard ceremony to their EDM-y glow-stick filled dance party, everything about their wedding was picture perfect. There were so many fun clips to choose from, please enjoy this small snippet!

Congrats Grady and Jaime, and thank you for letting us capture your big day!!

Not to mention the super fun wedding party and epic fog machine for the first dance.

Congrats Rhea and John and thank you for letting us capture your big day!! Happy holidays and hope you guys love your video!!

Daniela + Frank || Wedding Highlight Film || Château de Challain La Potherie, France

This year, I spent my birthday in a castle. No joke. A real castle in the actual French countryside.

Okay, so technically it was a chateau, but STILL.

Back in August, the video team was given the incredible opportunity to travel to France to shoot Daniela and Frank’s gorgeous wedding at the Chateau de Challain La Potherie. From exploring Paris, to visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Mont St Michel, to getting to know their amazing friends and family, the trip, for lack of better phrasing, completely took our breaths away.

Seriously, I cried. Multiple times. It was that beautiful.

But don’t take my word for it, please watch the film and see for yourselves!

Thank you guys so much for letting us capture your big day, thanks so much for your friendship and hospitality, and hope you love your film!

Sheila + Cecil || Extended Highlight Film || The Modern, Long Beach, CA

Got the wonderful opportunity to do an extended highlight for Sheila and Cecil — wonderful, because Sheila and Cecil had some pretty amazing vows and reception speeches, which made it a breeze to edit.

Click play to hear funny childhood stories, touching promises, and at least one hilarious instance of miscommunication.

Congrats again Sheila and Cecil and thank you for trusting us to capture your beautiful day!

Allison + Viet || Wedding Highlight Film || The Moxi, Santa Barbara

I can’t gush enough about how fun this wedding was! Held at The Moxi children’s museum in Santa Barbara, Allison and Viet’s labor day soiree perfectly captured their cool and playful energy. It also gave us the opportunity to reunite with some of our favorite past brides, from Chiell-Ann Ordonez, who coordinated, to Hikari Murakami, our makeup artist, to Yuri Tag and Clarizcel Roxas, who were in the bridal party. Not to mention all the Kaba Modern dancers who lit up the roof of the Moxi with their super fun performance, linked below.

I really don’t believe my words can do the night justice though, so please check out Allison and Viet’s amazing highlight below!

Kitty + Bryan || Wedding Highlight Film || Avenue of the Arts, Costa Mesa

One of the best parts of our jobs is working with couples who are just good people, and Kitty and Bryan are such an amazing example of that. From their interactions with the JEP team to everyone at their wedding, it’s just so easy to see how much love they have for the people around them, and how much those people love them in return.

Kitty and Bryan, thank you so much for being so fun, so welcoming, and so easy to work with. Your wedding was an absolute dream to shoot, and I sincerely hope you guys love your video!!

Andrew & Josie || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight || Mon Cheri, Garden Grove

Loved shooting Josie and Drew’s wedding last weekend! It was another packed day complete with three different locations and two different ceremonies, one Vietnamese tea and one traditional American. These two were such a fun couple, as was the rest of their entourage, and their energy helped hype us up throughout the whole day.

Congrats you two, and thank you for letting us share your big day!

Lynn + Van || Wedding Highlight Film || Falkner Winery, Temecula

Lynn and Van had a beautiful fairytale wedding at Falkner Winery in Temecula a couple of weeks ago, complete with white horse drawn carriage and (of course) a white Rolls Royce for the gentlemen. Not only were the grounds gorgeous as a whole, but the ceremony itself was tucked away down a long, tree-lined path like something out of Alice in Wonderland, giving the event a very “Hidden Garden” kind of feel.

Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day or couple. Congrats you two, and thank you for letting us be part of your big day!

Jocely + Kevin || Wedding Highlight Film || Valentine, Los Angeles

If there’s one thing Jocely and Kevin have in spades, it’s style. From their custom “keep your sh*t together” handkerchiefs to their chic/eclectic reception at the Valentine in Downtown Los Angeles, everything about their wedding just screamed “cool.”

On another note, they also happened to have the best appetizers I’ve ever eaten anywhere: ube mochi waffles with ensaymada butter and sinigang lumpia from Rice and Shine. I still dream about them, so, thanks for that haha.

Anyway, thank you guys so much for letting us capture your day and I hope you love your film!!

Christine + Kevin || Wedding Highlight Film || Fountain Valley

There’s a pose we do at JEP where the bride is standing pretty, minding her own business, while the groom approaches from behind and kisses her shoulder. Usually it takes a couple of times to get it right, but Christine and Kevin were such naturals at it, they got it in one go! They were good at lots of things really. So much of the posing process goes into education and training, but these two made our jobs super easy. Their whole wedding party was quick to laugh and easy to have fun with, and we are so grateful we got to shoot their big day. Thanks for being awesome, and thanks for the donuts!

Congratulations you two, and hope you love your film!

Roxy + Aaron || Wedding Highlight Film || Newhall Mansion, Piru

There’s a cool looking castle out in the valley with a turret and curved windows and a gazebo out back. This is where Roxanne and Aaron held their wedding earlier this month, and it was one of the prettiest, most interesting venues we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. With a bridal party 20 people deep, Roxy and Aaron’s wedding was also one of the funnest we’ve ever shot. They even had a Dippin’ Dots cart!

Congrats to you both, thank you for the amazing day, and hope you guys love your film!!

Sheila + Cecil || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight || The Modern, Long Beach, CA

The team pulled off an epic same day edit last night at The Modern in Long Beach, complete with helicopter entrance from the bride and groom and — as if that wasn’t enough already — some pretty incredible bboy windmills from the groom to boot (yes, there was lots and lots of spinning).

Sheila and Cecil and their bridal party were tons of fun and there’s plenty of gorgeous work from sirs Christopher Nguyen, Marvin Sola, and Divesh Patel to be seen in this video. Intricately composed slo-mos, dramatic shadow-play, emotional close-ups. It’s one of the favorite same day edits I’ve ever done, and I hope you guys love it too.
