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!

Jen + Ray || Wedding Highlight Film || The Ruby Princess

True confession time: I added an extra song to the beginning of this film, and I’ll admit now that five minutes still isn’t long enough to showcase everything that happened at Ray and Jen’s wedding. A couple weeks back, Ray and Jen invited us to party with them and 150 of their closest friends and family on the Ruby Princess for a four day wedding cruise to Ensenada, Mexico. There was a little ceremony in between, a little singing, a little dancing, and a couple tear-inducing vows. But mostly it was one heck of a party, and the team and I couldn’t have asked for a better group to work-cation with.

Congrats again Rayjen, and I hope this short highlight will help tide you guys over until we get the full version back to you in a few more weeks. Trust me, there are more than a few shenanigans you’re gonna wanna see.:PEnjoy!

Shelbie + Justin || Artistic Wedding Feature Film (Extended Highlight) || The Loft on Pine

It’s been a crazy month over at House Element, but we’re finally getting back in the groove and ready for wedding season to kick in! Got a couple final projects to post before the rush, the first being the artistic wedding film for our beautiful Loft on Pine couple, Shelbie and Justin. I honestly don’t know what more I could say about these two that hasn’t already been said, except that I totally teared up putting their video together. There was probably not a single person in the whole building who could not testify to the sheer awesomeness of Shelbie and Justin’s story and the strength of their love to overcome everything they went through to get to this day. I hope you guys are enjoying the married life, and that you can look back fondly on this video as the perfect beginning to a perfect life together. Cheers!

Jovelyn + Eric || Wedding Highlight Film || Alta Vista Country Club, Placentia

It’s crazy to think Jovelyn and Eric booked way back in 2014, and it’s crazy to think how much our films have changed since then. Still, I hope that early investment paid off, as their wedding was one of the funnest we’ve been to. Jovie and Erkie are geeks after my own heart. Their cake toppers were Deadpool and Hello Kitty for crying out loud. Thank you both again for sharing your special day with us. Please enjoy your highlight!

Michele + Nory || Wedding Highlight Film || Vertigo, Glendale

Here’s the thing: I wish I were a better writer so I could accurately express just how awesome Michele and Nory are. But I only have one brain so this is all I’ve got. What I can say is this: there wasn’t a single dry eye during their ceremony, they had a lightsaber battle during their photo session, and they had a lip sync battle for all their guests during their reception. I mean, seriously. Ah-maze-ing.

Being totally honest though, Michele and Nory are total sweethearts and this was probably the funnest and not to mention prettiest weddings I’ve shot in a while. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did. Cheers!

Shelbie + Justin || Wedding Highlight Film || The Loft on Pine, Long Beach

We kicked off the 2016 season with the wonderful Shelbie and Justin at one of our favorite venues, The Loft on Pine in Long Beach. One of the coolest things about this wedding was hearing the amazing story of how they got together — how they were college sweethearts who would go on to move all over the country, maintaining their relationship through texts and Skype calls before eventually winding up — surprise! — married four years later. Congratulations Shelbie and Justin on finally getting here, and thanks for allowing us to share in the magic.:)
