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.:)

Elana + Raffi || Wedding Highlight Film || Palisades, CA

A couple of weeks back, the JE team had the undeniable pleasure of closing out 2015 with Elana and Raffi, and all I can really say about it is: funnest. wedding. ever. I can honestly say I’ve never seen so much singing and dancing. That, coupled with their heartfelt vows and of course, tons of meaningful Jewish traditions, you really couldn’t help but feel feelings. Just, all of the feelings. So many feelings.

So, thank you Elana and Raffi for inviting us into your hysterical, dorky, and above all, loving world, and hope you guys enjoy your highlight film.:)

Ivonne + Charles || Wedding Highlight Film || Brandview Ballroom, Glendale

It’s crazy to think 2016 is just a few days away, but I’m so glad we got to finish up our second to the last wedding year with Ivonne and Charles. From the beginning of the day to end, everything was just filled with laughs and happy tears, #nouglycrying handkerchiefs and heartfelt gift exchanges. You’ll be hard pressed not to tear up at least a little bit, trust. Please enjoy their highlight!

Trinity + Nick || Wedding Highlight Film || Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

We’re rounding out the end of the year, folks, and to be honest, I can’t believe it’s December already. Earlier this week, I took the time to watch some of my older event highlights, and it’s insane seeing how much our style has grown and changed over the course of the past 12 months. And I think Trinity and Nick’s gorgeous wedding at Calamigos Ranch is a perfect demonstration of that.

This one’s a personal favorite of mine, so I hope you all enjoy it too. Cheers!

Jessica + David || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Dorothy Chandler Music Hall, Los Angeles

Helped pull off the loveliest little surprise at Jessica and David’s wedding this past Saturday, with our very first surprise Same Day Edit! It was a couple of weeks ago that David decided to add it on as a gift to Jess, and I have to admit I was a little scared at first. How on earth could I manage to edit without suspiciously just disappearing from the day? Thankfully, despite a few close calls, the team did an amazing job covering for me and everything went off without a hitch. Thank you Jessica and David for inviting us to share the day with you again, and hope you guys love this!

Thu Anh + Bryan || Wedding Highlight Film || Westminster, CA

It seems like just yesterday we were meeting Thu Anh and Bryan for the first time and chatting about their wedding over Korean BBQ. It’s been a good few months since then, but I’m happy to finally be able to share their highlight film. Inside you’ll find a couple new toys (gimbals, ftw), a beautiful church, and of course, one heck of a party. Enjoy!

Katie + Ronnie || Wedding Highlight Film || Doubletree, Anaheim

I first met Katie and Ronnie assisting Justin on their engagement shoot a few months back, and from that first meeting, it quickly became apparent that they were my kind of people. Easygoing, quick to laugh, and huge fans of food and Cirque du Soleil. I was sold. Funny story, at their wedding, we were actually lucky enough to run into some promoters for the new Cirque show Kurios, and later that month went on a tripquadruple-something date to see it at the OC Fairgrounds. Anyway, I digress. The point is that this couple is amazing and it’s been a pleasure getting to know them and working on their highlight film. Hope you guys it!
