Ok… I’m back and ready to blog finally! Had an amazing two weeks… first in Denver for my Grandma’s 90th Birthday (will post a photo soon) and then to Austin for Re:Frame where I presented and hung out with the most amazing event filmmakers out there!! Can’t wait for RF:SF!!
Anyway, on to the SDE from this past Saturday! Erin & TJ had an awesome “Old Hollywood/Jazz Club” themed wedding (that’s how I describe it anyway) at the St. Regis, Monarch Beach. Christopher Aldama completely transformed one of the St. Regis ballrooms from floor to ceiling. Staged seating was even built – it was truly unique and it really captivated the feel they were going for. Jeannie from Details Details coordinated every little detail (and there were a lot of them) and the event went off flawlessly.
My favorite moments from this day include Erin’s uncle who played the bagpipes before the ceremony and to intro them into cocktail hour (I get goosebumps upon hearing bagpipes!) and all the little details that symbolized their backgrounds (Irish & Japanese). The day had many touching moments and in the evening everyone experienced one of the best parties we have ever filmed. PERIOD.
I want to give a “shout-out” to Dave Cowling from DNM Video who helped us shoot! He’s one of the premier videographers in Australia and it was an honor to have his assistance on the day (and hang out with him… such a great guy!!)
Also be sure to check out the photos from our good friend Victor Sizemore… he has a teaser on his blog now but will be posting more soon!
Congrats Erin & TJ and have an amazing honeymoon!!!
