Telena + Kyle || Wedding Highlight Film || Serendipity Gardens

It’s a pleasure of mine to finally debut Telena and Kyle’s highlight film from their wedding. It’s been a few weeks since they’ve tied the knot together, so for us it’s been an anxious few weeks getting it done and uploaded for you all to see. From dogs running around to smores being prepped, it could not have been more of a perfect day for a wedding. The horse drawn carriage and kidnapping of the bride only made it more of a fairytale. We can’t thank Telena, Kyle, their awesome bridal party, and their parents for making it THE day for everyone. They all worked hard to keep our couple happy, set up the location, and make it a unique party. You were all hospitable and we can only hope we were even more pleasant for you and your guests.

As we watched this video right before deciding to finally upload it, we can say that it’s among one of our favorite highlights to date and hope you all feel the same way!

Joy + Ken || Wedding Highlight Film || LA Arboretum

This particular Saturday was filled with waterfalls, desserts galore, and the ever so curious peacock every now and then. These things combined with the friends and family of Joy and Ken made for a beautiful wedding day. This was a long awaited day for Joy and Ken, along with their children, as two people, donned in their Jordan and Jimmy Choo shoes made the long trek, literally, to their “I dos”. We were all having fun from the start of the day where it was just fun and laughter about everything. Their photographer and long time friend Rey Trajano made it for a creative day for us vendors too! The LA Arboretum was just incredibly beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for better weather on their day. Joy and Ken also happen to be good friends with our past couple Brandon and Nayna so it was a mini reunion to catch up on things with old friends again. Now we kindly ask you all to sit back, turn the volume up, and enjoy 4 minutes of Joy and Ken’s wedding day in their highlight video!

Nicole + Greg || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Padua Hills Theatre

We’re back at the Padua Hills Theatre and this time the cinema team has come to accompany the photography team for Nicole and Greg’s wedding! It hasn’t been 24 hours since we last saw Nicole and Greg and the reason why we’re blogging about them so early is because… you guessed it, it’s another same day edit. Starting early in the afternoon, we knew that there would be a small window of time to edit their wedding day in time for the debut of it near the end of their reception. From the beginning where we stuck with them during their prep session at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel in Claremont, we could honestly say that we were surprised to learn so much more about these two lovely people just being with them for the first two hours of the day. Nicole showed us some sick feet movement that we haven’t seen since back in the day and boy did Greg look red carpet certified in his sleek suit.

Now at this moment, we’d like to reveal and share with you their same day edit. Thank you to Nicole and Greg for having us out and giving us the privilege to shoot their day!

Jenny + Neil || Wedding Highlight Film || Marbella Country Club

We love couples who love us and Jenny and Neil are one of those couples. We met these two at our showroom in Tustin, one very warm evening, and instantly fell in love with these two people. Not only could we tell that they were invested with each other, but they were also invested in the people looking to make their wedding day creatively memorable. The Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort set the scene, starting with all the sunshine, surf, and the Marbella Country Club allowed for Jenny and Neil to ride off together at the end of the night. This wedding was so uniquely crafted by Jenny and Neil, with bits of their stories and time spent together showcased all around the venue, with a lot of credit given to Jenny for using her artistic abilities to HAND draw and create much of the detail that night. Jenny and Neil, friends and family, please enjoy the highlight video of their wedding day, thank you two so much for having us out to cover your beautiful day!

Patty + Sang || Wedding Highlight Film || Avenue of The Arts

It was exciting for us to finally cover Patty and Sang’s wedding as we’ve spent so much time with them since their meeting with us to now that we just wouldn’t wait for it to come. Starting the day at the beautiful Avenue of the Arts Wyndham Hotel in Costa Mesa, Patty and Sang packed in their cultural tea ceremony, along with a tea ceremony, and movie worthy reception all in one day. Patty looked stunning in all of her different outfits throughout the night and the legends of Sang’s break dancing skills were finally put on exhibition for all guests attending! Guests couldn’t stay away from the candy table, which didn’t stay out very long by the way, and the photobooth and it made for laughs and nonstop fun the entire night, and all of this just goes to show how wonderful Patty and Sang are. These are two of the most selfless and loving people who deserved their wedding day. What started as a love story destined to fail from the beginning turned into a love story where one man got the girl of his dreams.

Eileen + Junnel || The Hangover || Same Day Edit Film

It’s finally here! After having to keep this video locked up away from the eyes of everyone for the past couple of months, the cinema team is happy to unveil our latest concept video-SDE mashup. We celebrated Junnel and Eileen’s big day this past weekend and we’re here to share with you the best and memorable parts of their day. Junnel and Eileen have been through some crazy situations with each other, all of which led up to April 12, 2014, and those situations made for a great day to share stories and connect with all the important people in their lives.

We had a hootin’ time filming their concept video, based on the blockbuster film The Hangover, and have been waiting endlessly to finally put the final piece of the cinematic film together, their wedding day. You’ll notice some familiar faces and places when you watch it. Some good acting and enthusiasm from this tightly knit group of friends and family made for something that everyone can look back on years from now and remember what brought them all together on that beautiful Saturday. Enjoy the film and we hope that all the best kinds of emotions hit you within 7 minutes and 42 seconds.

Special thanks to Mendrick Leelin, owner of Yojie restaurant in Diamond Bar, home to the best shabu shabu you can find, for allowing us to film our concept video in!

Connie + Abe || 50th Wedding Anniversary Highlight Film || The Reef, Long Beach

Having the opportunity to watch a couple step into their golden year together is a rare moment to experience.  Connie and Abe celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary together last week and have so much for all the hard work and love they’ve put in together over the years.  From grandchildren to the number of graduations they’ve seen, these two have personally touched my heart as I was there that night watching the slideshow that was put together.  The slideshow was a timeline that showcased their relationship from the beginning to the present and it made me realize what a beautiful thing it is to have when you have someone else to share your life moments with, knowing that you’ve found someone out of all the people here on this planet to create memories with.

Everyone that has touched or been touched by our golden couple over the years was attending, from the original best man to the new generations of their bloodline.  We enjoyed watching the two dance the night away and see the history they’ve created and put their name on in the 50 years of being together.  Here’s the cinematic version of their night!

Kathleen + Kevin || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Asian Pearl

We headed up to San Francisco this Valentine’s Day weekend to celebrate the wedding of Kathleen and Kevin.  The story of two people that started when they were both at the right place at the right time started a new chapter as they tied the knot in front of a large group of family and friends.  The team and I had fun with this video, not only because Kathleen and Kevin were a great couple to capture to film, but because of how deep and cinematically involved we indulged ourselves in with this video.  We found some tricks up our sleeves to make this video as unique to our couple as possible.  Relive their entire weekend AND their beginning with us in their concept-highlight video mashup.

Kim + Josh || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Mon Amour Banquet Hall

It’s currently 1:34 in the morning, 3 hours since leaving Kim and Josh’s wedding, probably not the best time to be writing a blog post right now, but I’m currently still in that wedding high we get and it’s just a great mood to be in when writing one.  I had met Kim and Josh on their engagement shoot way back last year where we filled a small concept video, which makes up the first part of their same day edit, so I’ve had their files sitting in my computer for a long time, just waiting to be put together.  Today, while I wasn’t exactly active in filming too much of the day’s activities, I essentially lived it through the individual files my team was giving to me on their memory cards as they day went on.  Meeting them for the first time, my first impressions were that they were both energetic, easy to break the ice with, and even though they say they aren’t great in front of the camera, they were so perfect and naturally….. in love with each other!  The emotions and smiles you’re going to see in their videos are 100% genuine.

20 minutes to debuting their same day edit, I’m sitting in the 4×6 closet space they’ve given me to edit in and as I’ve watched the video again, giving it one last check through, in my head I worried if this video would be good enough for Kim and Josh.  I was worried if this video would live up to their expectations because everything else leading up to this hour was incredible and beautiful so their SDE had to be of the same quality if not better!  As we pressed play and let the video roll on, the laughter and tears and hollering within the crowd accompanied by Josh’s fist high in air as the scene of him and Kim having their first kiss as husband and wife definitely got rid of all my worries.  I couldn’t be happier with my team yesterday as they did a fantastic job, and I couldn’t be happier that Kim and Josh had chosen to go with us as their videographers.  Thank you two so much for having us out for your beautiful day, we loved your venues, we loved your enthusiasm, and we loved partying with you and everyone else!

CherLyn Mae + John Bryant || Wedding Highlight Film || The Turnip Rose Celebrations

CherLyn changed her last name from Farol to Andres last week in one of the most heart touching weddings I’ve been to yet. They rang in (I get to use the word rang because they literally rang a bell) their wedding day with a beautiful ceremony at the charming Mariners Church in Irvine, where for the first time since I’ve been in this industry I’ve seen a groom take a selfie picture of himself to capture his expression as his wife walked down the aisle. I met JB and CherLyn for the first time on their wedding day and immediately fell in love with them. JB was smiling the entire day and CherLyn, looking like she was having the time of her life, made getting happy footage easy. Celebrations by Turnip Rose hosted their reception which gave a more nightclub setting feeling contrary to the usual banquet hall look you usually see at weddings. They really took care of their guests as there were so many activities for them to do. So for you upcoming brides and grooms, let the idea of an ice cream bar swim a little in your head. Thank you CherLyn and JB for letting us join in on your festivities, I hope you and everyone else enjoys your highlight video!

Lisa + Dan || Wedding Highlight Film || Richard Nixon Library

Whenever we hear of a Republican and Democrat being anywhere near one another, we usually joke that there is only fighting words being spoken between each other, but on Friday, January 24, 2014, one Republican and one Democrat decided to play nice with each other. Matter of fact, they decided to tie the knot together! Lisa and Dan this weekend invited us for a front row seat of their emotional roller coaster of a day. Dan wasn’t allowed to get a look at his bride until the doors would open to reveal her at the ceremony and I believe we captured his excitement and anticipation pretty well! The Richard Nixon Library was their venue for their reception, as Lisa loves the world of politics so much, and it was beautiful beyond words. We’ve been waiting to shoot at the Nixon Library for a while now so when Lisa gave us the call that they’d be having their wedding here, we just couldn’t wait for this day to come. Our team had a great time putting this video together for you all, so thanks Lisa and Dan for having us out for your wedding, we love you guys and hope you enjoy your married life!

Nicole + Gary || Wedding Highlight Film || Robinson Ranch Golf Club

It was the team’s first time at the Robinson Ranch Golf Club where Nicole and Gary finally tied the knot.  We were among family and close friends as we watched our couple light their candle together at their ceremony and dance their first dance as husband and wife.  Nicole and Gary’s genuine love for each other brought out some of the most natural emotions I’ve ever seen from two people, which made it so easy to capture the happy moments during their day.  As their videography team, we couldn’t have asked for better weather that day; we hope that their video proves how amazing Winter in California can be.  Thank you Nicole and Gary for inviting us out for your wedding day. Enjoy your video!
