As Julie sat calmly with the girls sipping her tea and preparing for the day, Brendan sat relaxed with the guys sipping on “the Force” as they so affectionately refer to their concoction of choice. Julie had such a great calm about her that we found it so fitting to sum up her even keel by her response to the simple question of “how are you feeling?” that was asked by a friend. Calmly, as she sipped on her tea, she replied, “I’m just ready to be his Wifey”. . . . and with that, the tone was set for her preps. While she stepped into her dress, he stepped into his Air Force Ones with custom suede bottoms, installed as a one-off from the local Cobbler. “Why the suede?” we asked. . . “So my feet can slide on the dance floor”, Brendan replied as if it was obvious in the first place. . . . . “Duh!” We should have known better. . . .
If ever there was a couple who we could hang out with all day and just listen, it would be Brendan and Julie. Not only because solid gold emits from Brendan’s mouth every 15-18 seconds, but surely because they are the completion of one another. The manner in which Julie handles Brendan and his off the wall banter is flawless as if their minds are literally conjoined. . . and to return the favor, Brendan has a side that appears only when he is around Julie. Having spent the better part of the morning with him and the guys, we took special note of his demeanor once Julie was by his side. While he insisted on custom Nike’s for the guys and a nacho bar at the cocktail reception, this wedding had the perfect French touches that were all so important to Julie, her family and the day. Brendan gives in to Julie when he knows it’s important to her. With so much of her family traveling in from across the pond, the details of the day were reflective of a French family inspired setting at the one and only Saddlerock Ranch.
It is so incredibly rewarding when we get to work with a couple like Brendan and Julie, who allow us to come in and do what we do, so that we can create the best possible film for them. . . . better than any we have created before. While this is just a trailer, we truly can’t wait to share their film with them as there are so many details and elements that are pure Brendan and Julie.
A very special THANK YOU to Cassandra Santor from Cassandra & Company Weddings for introducing us to Brendan and Julie. Always a pleasure to work with you and thank you so much for making our lives a breeze on the wedding day!
