…actually not a speech but a RAP and a hilarious tribute to the bride’s favorite Salt n’ Pepa song that she’d love to sing over the intercom of her family home growing up. We think her sister’s really did it justice…what do you think?
It’s not every day you film a wedding that incorporates a boat with wheels. This one did, as well as many other unique elements (such as a wedding cake inspired by the band “The Killers”). Seriously this is one to watch! Gabbi & Bart’s wedding took place on the property of her parent’s home in gorgeous Newport Rhode Island. The weather was fantastic and we used the opportunity to get some drone practice in. The party was fantastic… incredible band, and I think all guests (including the older ones!) danced until the very end!
Christine & Joe are simply the best. LOVED working with this awesome couple!! Enjoy their SDE!
From the Bride:
“Joe and I met at Pepperdine University during our freshman year. I always say it was fate that brought us together because our paths kept crossing in strange ways throughout our four years there. Our freshman dorms were right next to each other and we met during the first few days of school. We barely talked to one another but a few friendly “hellos” were exchanged. Sophomore year we both chose to study abroad in Lausanne, Switzerland together, but despite our daily French class and our weekends traveling we were just classmates, nothing more. It was not until senior year that I was heading to class in the business building where I saw Joe sitting alone. There were no open tables so I decided to ask if I could study with him. We hit it off and a first date turned into three, and the next thing I knew our senior policy professor was joking in class that we were going to be “Policy wedding number 31”. (Dr. Seshan is attending our wedding!) I knew he was the one when my dad met him at graduation and told me he just met the man I was going to marry. Shortly after graduation, Joe moved to New York City where I shortly followed and we fell in love in the Big Apple. A little over a year later, we decided to move back to Joe’s hometown in Orange County, California where we currently live. In February 2013, we went on a ski trip to Vail, Colorado where Joe had a surprise proposal planned. It was so romantic; he lined an empty ice rink with roses and candles, and it just started to snow as I was walking over. Joe was waiting in the middle of the rink where he asked me to marry him and when I said yes, the spectators watching from around the rink cheered! It was truly a magical moment.”
Kelly & Tan, together with their wedding planner Carolyn Chen, created a totally gorgeous wedding and celebration! The best part? They even had a full-on choir and orchestra (50 piece!) to make their ceremony that much more dramatic. The groom actually wrote and arranged the pieces! So cool!! I will probably blog this later but for now, thought I’d share their Same Day Edit. Enjoy!!!
