Yesterday the Edit 1 Media team (Chris, Andrew and yours truly) had the honor of filming Bessie & Alvin’s wedding at the Kahala Hotel which is right outside of Honolulu. Alvin’s family is from Kailua but he and Bessie live in Seattle, so it was a semi destination wedding and the best of both worlds to have us filming their day.
The day was absolutely gorgeous…sunny and mild with some wonderful trade winds. Bessie looked amazing and was just so much fun to be around all day! Alvin was cool, calm and collected and seemed to be walking on air. It was a very busy day with preparations, Chinese games and a First Glance, a Chinese Tea Ceremony and then of course the Ceremony and Reception. We did a Same Day Edit using the same song that played during their wedding procession so it’s obviously a song that means a lot to them!
I have to say that the funniest part of the day is a toss-up between the “Rock the Reception” first dance and the crazy pictures people were taking in the Photo Booth. Bessie and her Maid of Honor took some super silly photos with Andrew that I’m sure won’t ever see the light of day. Thanks for making us take those, Bessie!
