With the new year, comes new weddings, and with the new weddings, well. . . . comes some VERY fun edits. This one definately stands out so far as not only incredibly entertaining to shoot, but almost twice as fun to edit!!!

From the moment we arrived at the Hyatt in Huntington Beach, I knew this one was going to be spectacular. The energy in the bridal suite was unbelievable and Melissa was glowing from minute one.

Melissa and David met before the ceremony so that we could get all the good stuff with sunlight still around. Brandon Kidd setup a spectacular first glance shot that was a moment the B&G will soon not forget!

For those of you who actually read the posts, not just watch the clips. . . good for you, because I have to preface this one by warning you that this is not your everyday wedding highlight. . . Quite the contrary, so I hope you are ready. LOL. . . if you had already pressed play, I suppose you would be able to decipher that for yourself. . . . hmmmm

In any case, a mastodonic shout out to Brandon Kidd from Brandon Kidd Photography. You will see his images sprinkled throughout the clip, and he never disappoints.

Special thank you to Jennifer Johnson from OC’s Finest for keeping everything on time and being there at every moment for us crazy vendors. . . . and a very special thank you as well to Joe Paxton from Atmosphere Entertainment. What an amazing job he did with the lighting at the venue. . . it really popped in the footage!
Without any further delay. . . here it is. . . hope you enjoy! – Steve

Here is the Same Day Edit from their big day!

Enjoy!:-)

>What better way to bring in the new year than with a new marriage???. . . That’s what I always say!

Tane and Jeff were married in an intimate spiritual ceremony at a breathtaking estate in Rancho Santa Fe on New Year’s Day. Beneath a beautiful Palapa sat 25 of their closest friends and family as the two exchanged hand written vows. A very special thank you to Tony and Marion from Elegant Photography for helping to arrange the shoot that took place just hours after the ball dropped.

Happy New Year (again. . . lol. . . if you read the post before this). Hope you enjoy the trailer 🙂

Well, January 2nd and here we are in 2009!

Happy New Year to all and I truly hope that each and everyone one of you had a wonderful Holiday Season. . . . Now BACK TO WORK!

LOL, for us, that started yesterday as we welcomed the new year in style at a beautiful estate wedding in Rancho Santa Fe. I’ll be sure to get some new gems posted for you in the next few weeks as we begin the year with a bang.

There is still limited availability for 2009 on the calendar so if you received a special piece of jewelry on Xmas (like so many do), and you are starting to plan the big day already, give us a call TODAY and reserve the date before it dissapears!

Cheers and Here’s to 2009!!!

>My First Love

So, yes. . . this is a wedding cinema blog. . . and yes. . . you come here to check out fun clips of all the crazy stuff we make. . . but this post is more for the guys out there, I hope you can all empathize with me. . . .

When I was 16 years old, I was given the option of going away to college or having a new car . . . . I know, I know. . . rough life. . . but, hey, what can I say.

So, seeing that I wasn’t going to college for another year and a half (I was a junior), I decided on the car. That’s when me and my Mustang were first introduced to one another. May of ’99, bright red, shiny and new. . . wow was I in love, and my mustang was happy to have a new home.

Years of time, sweat, blood (definately cut up the fingers under the hood a few times), and MONEY, and then more MONEY, and then more MONEY went into my Mustang. I even took her to car shows, and she never dissapointed.

I’ll never forget the time my father and I decided we were going to install Short Tube Headers into the car in the driveway. Started on a “5 hour project” on Friday afternoon. Well, by Sunday morning, we were almost ready to have the Mustang towed because it was not drivable with the pieces we had taken out, but simply couldn’t figure out how to get back in. However, as all things in life, we worked it out, and the Mustang was that much greater of a car for it.

Just one month ago, my wife and I purchased a new car for her, which left us in a pickle, because now we have a 2 car garage, with 3 cars. . . hmmmm. Selling our SUV was not an option because we always use it for the mountains and lugging around our 4 legged child. So after much toiling and understanding the inevitable was coming. . . .I put my beloved Mustang up for sale.

Just hours after the Craigslist ad, several inquiries, and I almost wanted to tell them, “Just Kidding,” but I had to go through with it. The thought of my Mustang just sitting in a parking space in front of our house collecting dust was almost as pain staking as turning over the keys to someone else. . .

Well, today I sold my Mustang, to a guy who truly was ecstatic to have it, which made me feel good, but wow I feel like I gave away a piece of me. To see his eyes light up when he came to pick up the car was funny. It felt like someone else was now looking at the car the way I always have. I must say that was comforting, much better than trading it into a dealership or giving it to someone who wouldn’t appreciate it . . The car was truly my first love and although I’m sure anyone who is actually still reading this would say it was just a bunch of metal. . . it was much more to me.

So I write this post with a heavy heart and place in that heart that will always be reserved for a 16 year old’s shiny new toy. . . my Mustang.
