Sara + Luis || Wedding Highlight Film || Coco Palms, Pomona

Sara and Luis marked the end of a whirlwind month filled with crazy double headers and SDEs. The nice thing was we probably couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple to close out with. From San Dimas to Pomona, the whole day was beautiful and an absolute pleasure to shoot. Did I mention they had the cutest baby, like, ever? Like, ever ever?

Anywho, hope you guys love your video!

Monica + John || Wedding Highlight Film || Crestmore Manor, Riverside, CA

Bit of a change of pace this time around when it comes to song choice, but hope you guys love it all the same. Monica and John were such an amazing couple and their wedding was absolutely gorgeous, kicking off at the Mission Inn in Riverside and ending at the equally lovely Crestmore Manor. I have to admit, this was definitely one of my favorites this season, thanks to the super friendly wedding entourage, beautiful settings, and of course, the most impressive surprise groomsmen dance I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing, linked to below beneath the highlight film. Enjoy!

Jackie + Viet || Wedding Highlight Film || Garden Grove, CA

This was a fun one. Jackie and Viet weren’t our traditional wedding. First off, they wore their wedding dress and suit to their engagement session with Justin. Second, there wasn’t a traditional ceremony per se, just a tea ceremony and exchange of rings in the morning. Third, there wasn’t exactly a bridal party, just a group of friends who tagged along for photo session and actually ended up being one of the funnest entourages we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. There’s lots of fun party stuff to look forward to in this film, hope you guys like it.

Lindsey + Joe || Wedding Highlight Film || Sinatra Estate, San Juan Capistrano

Ever since she was a little kid, Lindsey was on a straight shot to having the perfect wedding, starting with her parents buying her dream wedding venue / her childhood home. Talk about luck haha. As for the rest, Lindsey’s big heart and determination made it all happen on her own. She made sure to get Joe’s phone number after meeting him at the Cheesecake Factory. She hand picked all her vendors, personal friends she’s made after years of working as a cake maker. She even hand sewed outfits for her dogs, who served as the most adorable ring bearers and flower girls ever. In short, Lindsey is basically Super Woman, and I’m so stoked to finally be able to share her wedding film with you all. Hope you guys love it!

Annette + Andrew || Wedding Highlight Film || Mon Amour, Anaheim, CA

This summer has been one of the craziest for us so far, just nonstop work back to back. But it’s also been one of the most creatively rewarding, so I’ve got no complaints.:)Kicking off this next round of videos is Annette and Andrew, who invited us out to share their whopping 16 hour day with them, complete with tea ceremony, two getting ready sessions, and a Catholic mass. Overall, the day was absolutely gorgeous, from their quaint AirBnB in Anaheim to their reception. Stepping into Annette and Andrew’s wedding was basically like walking into a fairytale, flowers and vines everywhere — seriously, it was the prettiest I’ve ever seen Mon Amour banquet hall. Thanks again for inviting us to the party, and hope you guys love your film!

April + Augusto || Wedding Highlight Film || The Line Hotel, Los Angeles, CA

June was an absolute whirlwind for the video team, six weddings just back to back, and I’m so excited to finally get to share everything with you all. We’re kicking off with April and Augusto, whose wedding was an absolute dream — complete with hipster K-town hotel rooms, big blue trolleys, and the amazing A List wedding band. I’m gonna let this one speak for itself, but let’s just say I wish I was this effortlessly cool.

Thao + Jeremy || Wedding Highlight Film || Royal Banquet Hall

Got another couple who’s currently on their honeymoon in Bora Bora and making everyone and their moms jealous — the new Mr. and Mrs. Arcaira, Jeremy and Thao. We had the pleasure of celebrating their whole day with them about two weeks back, from the tea ceremony at Thao’s childhood home to mass at the beautiful St. Boniface church and finally, a killer reception at the Royal Banquet Hall in Westminster. Which was complete, I might add, by these amazing paper flowers the bride made herself and quite possibly the most epic wedding dance battle I have ever seen.

Any who, Thao and Jeremy, thank you again for inviting us to document your big day. I hope you guys are enjoying your honeymoon, and let’s do a Disney date when you guys get back!:)

Cheers!

Victoria + William || Wedding Highlight Film || Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden, Long Beach

Currently, the newly wed Pan-Duhs are on their honeymoon in Europe, making everyone on their Facebook feeds jealous. Luckily, the rest of us can console ourselves with their awesome wedding highlight film ;D We trekked out to some of our old favorite spots like the Japanese Garden at CSULB and Mon Amour Banquet Hall, plus got to see one of the most beautiful airbnbs for getting ready in the morning. All in all, it was a great day. Hope you guys enjoy it too!

Lori + Tony || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Diamond Bar Center

Just got home from our first Same Day Edit of 2016, and I’m still shaking. Granted, my diet consisted of Japanese rice crackers, Hi-Chews, and boba all day (shout-outs to Lori and Tony’s boba bar), but still. It’s crazy that no matter how many times I do these, it always feels like a mission. My team did amazing and we got some beautiful new drone footage and Lori and Tony not only provided boba for everyone but also In-N-Out at the end of the night. And the adrenaline was still pumping the entire time. But I don’t think I’d have it any other way.:)

Hope you guys loved seeing your highlight film as much as I loved editing it. Congratulations again!

Connie + Jason || Wedding Highlight Film || Le Foyer Ballroom, Hollywood

The nice thing about being a young creative is that I still get to experiment with my style, looking at a bunch of different sources, playing with things I like and don’t like, and changing those things whenever it feels right. And on that note, I’ve got a different kind of video for you guys this time around. Connie and Jason had a beautiful fairy tale-themed wedding a few weeks back, and rather than my usual flashy effects, it felt fitting to try something a little more serene. Hopefully the result makes you feel all the feelings.:PEnjoy!

Marjorie + William || Wedding Highlight Film || Earl Burns Miller Japanese Gardens

We’ve been to the Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach a lot this past month, and every time I cannot get over how pretty it is in there. This was our first time seeing the place all lit up for a gorgeous nighttime reception — string lights and flowers and spot colorful spot lighting everywhere. Thanks Marjorie and Will for allowing us to capture the start of your beautiful futures together, and hope you guys enjoy your highlight!

Mary + Kris || Wedding Highlight Film || Turnip Rose Celebrations

We returned to one of our old favorites for John and Jane’s wedding at the Turnip Rose Celebrations venue in Newport Beach. Or rather, I should say Mary and Kris’s wedding. Or Maryjane and John Kristoffer’s.;)Whatever you call them, these two were seriously some of the sweetest, most easy to work with couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot, and I’m so excited to finally share their highlight film. As a special bonus, there’s also a surprise dance video below, as performed by the whole bridal entourage. Hope you guys enjoy!

Soshanna + Tab || Wedding Highlight Film || Crevier Classic Cars, Costa Mesa

Pardon me for starting this blog off with a cliche, but doing creative work for a living really can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, every piece you create is like extracting a little bit of your soul and putting it out there for the world to either love or hate or ignore entirely. On the other hand, sometimes you get to meet cool people like Soshanna and Tab and their wedding party. Oh, and their dogs. ;D

The whole team ventured far, all the way to Costa Mesa, to capture T & S’s wedding day a couple of weeks ago. What we found was one of the hippest apartments we’ve ever seen, one of the snazziest looking couples we’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot, and more amazing classic cars than we ever thought we could see in one place. To be honest, we were probably the least cool things about the wedding, but it helped that Soshanna and Tab were totally adorkable themselves. It helped take some of the edge off haha.

All in all, this wedding was an absolute blast both to shoot and edit, and I’m so happy to finally share this highlight with you all. Tried a couple new things this time around too, hope you guys like it!

Gia + Mike || Wedding Highlight Film || Yamashiro’s Hollywood

Here’s the thing: I have never cried editing my own videos until now. With Gia and Mike, I just couldn’t help it. It wasn’t just that their relationship reminds me a little of my boyfriend’s and mine. It wasn’t just the epically beautiful song by Angels and Airwaves they chose for their highlight. It wasn’t even that they decided to throw a Lakers-themed wedding so close to Kobe’s final game. It was all of this and more, and I’m so excited to share the result of all this serendipity with all of you. Believe it or not, this actually turned out to be one of my new favorite films. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I loved putting it together.

Cheers!
