Some of you might have seen my tweet back on August 6th about how we were the surprise wedding gift for a couple getting married that day.  Well, that’s not exactly true.  We were the gift from the Bride to the Groom!  Needless to say he was excited (and a little confused at first) see us there but the surprise didn’t end there.  We were also editing a Same Day Edit.  We kept Mike (our awesome SDE editor) tucked away so Scott wouldn’t see them.  When we started to set up the screen & projector midway through the reception he was probably even more confused!  The bride had everyone sit down and when the film played, there were lots tears and lots of clapping.  It was truly a spectacular surprise… and a unique one at that!  It was such a pleasure to be involved in Christen & Scott’s wedding which took place at a friend’s house on Balboa Island.  My navigation system told me the long way to go to get to their house… which means I took a ferry (I didn’t even know there was a ferry!!) but it all worked out because I put the camera on the truck and got a great timelapse of the drive across the water and around the island.

We worked alongside Skye Blu Photography and amidst a ton of Found Rental’s vintage furniture.  So in other words… it was a really fun day.  Congrats Christen & Scott!!


Tissue box indeed! OMG….I am so sorry I had to miss this highly important day for my best friend and her amazing husband Scott!
