Wendy + Nick || Wedding Highlight Film || Angelus Mountain Center

We met the extremely active Wendy and Nick about a year ago as they were beginning to plan their wedding, and up to now, they still haven’t slowed down. From one of the most daring proposals to one of the biggest days of their lives, we’re happy to finally see them get to this point. The wedding was held at the Angelus Nature Center, which just seems so fitting for them, and we enjoyed getting out of the urban scene for a day, it allowed us to get in touch with mother nature for once. Please enjoy your this highlight of their wedding and relive the night with us!

Stacey + Kevin || Wedding Highlight Film || Los Angeles, CA

It’s always an adventure when we’re shooting in LA. For Stacey and Kevin’s wedding, it wasn’t any different. we took over the town, from the Disney Concert Hall to LA’s grand Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels church, and even with the Made in America music festival just next door, nothing could compare to the beautiful wedding of the new Mr. and Mrs. Ilagan. I would not hesitate saying that it was a perfect wedding day. Time was on our side and even when it wasn’t no one was worried, Kevin pulled off some new romantic moves that I myself have never seen before. The day ending with a view of the golden state’s sunset from the 50th floor of The City Club brought it all together. Have a wonderful life together, we thank you Stacey and Kevin for inviting us out to be a part of your memorable day.

Helen + Peter || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight || Claremont, CA

Helen and Peter called me under two months ago to tell me about their wedding plans at the beautiful Padua Hills Theatre in Claremont. Peter and I had a nice chat over the phone and almost immediately the two lovebirds booked our team. It’s always a little exciting and mysterious going into a wedding and not physically meeting our couple in person, but as soon as we started our day and met Peter and Helen, it was like running into old friends. Peter and Helen did everything possible to make us feel like we were right at home and really made our jobs as easy as possible. We had a blast covering their beautiful day with photo and video and putting together this same day edit film. Thank you for welcoming us into your day and choosing us to capture your most intimate moments, hope you enjoy watching this again!

Jill + Chris || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Hotel Maya

When we had first met Jill and Chris way back when we began offering videography services, we knew the road to their date would be a long one. They booked us so early and we immediately loved them from the start of our lengthy meeting (remember how late it was that we all left?). This saddened us knowing that we’d have to wait so long to do their same day edit. Jill and Chris’s wedding at the Hotel Maya would be the first time that we would start and end the day of a wedding there, so we were happy that we would actually get to use everything that makes it unique. On top of everything, the fact that their day was actually cool out of all the other hot hot summer days was just the icing on the cake for us. We’ve never felt more comfortable at a wedding thanks to their awesome friendly and enthusiastic bridal party and their sponsors and parents who wanted to party as much as they wanted to.

Not only do I love this same day edit for the couple and what we’ve done with it, but this is personally a favorite video of mine, whom I would like to dedicate to the videographer who has inspired me since the start of my video career, Mon. Thank you Jill and Chris for being so good to us, picking my favorite song, and also letting us enjoy your wedding day with you! Your appreciation and love makes this job worth doing.

Margaret + Nick || Wedding Highlight Film || Carpinteria

Oh boy let me say how happy we were to finally be at a beach wedding for the first time this wedding season! With the unusually cool breeze and fog that surrounded us, we made some magic in beautiful Carpinteria for Margaret and Nick’s wedding. Hearing their story of how they met, how they fell in love, and everything that was leading up to this day as the hours went by, seeing them say their ‘I dos’ and getting their vows out was heart touching. My team and I loved what we were giving to work with. Big windows and a different terrain allowed us the luxury of working somewhere new! From a great bridal party to the best breakfast burritos ever, thank you Margaret and Nick for having us out with you two. Please enjoy!

Leslie + Joey || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Serendipity Gardens

Rain or shine, a wedding will go on, and rain or shine the Justin Element cinema team will go on! Our couple Leslie and Joey braved the downpour and paid no attention to the flash floods warning this last weekend and we had to too to make sure we got their same day edit video out on time. It was another reunion of sorts at their wedding, knowing some familiar faces and names. Experience Joey’s creativity and Leslie’s knack for taking life as it comes in their video. While most people would imagine the perfect wedding day filled with sunshine, friends and family, good food and good laughs, remember that the perfect wedding day is made when the perfect couple is perfectly happy with everything that comes to them. Thank you for letting us experience your perfect day Joey and Leslie.

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.
