I have so much to say about Anna & Joe’s wedding….it was beautiful, elegant, full of bling, grand, stunning….what other adjectives can I come up with?? It was a long, fun day and after we showed the Same Day Edit, Anna told me “hiring you was one of the best things we did!” which is one of those phrases that just makes my year. Thanks to Heather Sharpe who referred us! Tonight was Heather’s last wedding as a planner since she is going to work on her other business…but we are grateful that she recommended us to this amazing couple!
For those who might ask about Anna’s wedding dress….it’s a one of a kind custom made just for her, so you won’t see it anywhere else.
It is always great to work alongside wedding vendors who we’ve known for years and have come to see as friends. Tania from Azzura Photography had the great idea of bringing a Venetian mask with feathers that matched the wedding for some fun photos…and as always was FABULOUS to work with!! Aria Floral did an unbelievable job creating stunning bouquets for the ladies and grand, breathtaking arrangements for the ceremony and reception with tons of yellow, cream and white flowers with feathers! The Michael Benson Band and The Wedding DJs were there to entertain the guests (and I must say they did a lot of entertaining ME while I was editing and they came in to take a break!). And of course the Fairmont Olympic Hotel and St. James Cathedral are a combination that is hard to beat.
I hope you enjoy their Same Day Edit and please feel free to leave comments! Oh…and keep an eye out for the Super 8mm film which will be coming later after it is back from processing.

Last weekend we had the pleasure of filming Natalie & Jeremiah’s wedding. Natalie got dressed with her mom, sister & grandmother’s help in a beautiful suite at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. Natalie’s beautiful wedding gown was accented with some FUN blue shoes…I was in love with them the second I saw them! So cute! When she was finishing getting dressed, her Dad entered the room and saw his little girl for the first time that day as a stunning bride…it was a very emotional and touching moment without a dry eye in the room!
Jeremiah didn’t see Natalie until the wedding ceremony and I’d say he was pretty blown away by the sight of his gorgeous bride walking down the aisle at St. James Cathedral. After the Wedding Mass, the newleyweds took photos with Sean Flanigan then headed back to the Fairmont for their reception in the lush Garden Room. One of our previous couples, Juliette and Mark were there as guests and I was so excited to see they are expecting! I wish I had more time to talk with them, but it was a pretty busy night for our team!
Natalie requested Ave Maria as the music for their Same Day Edit because it has special meaning for them and both of their families. I think it fit the romantic, spiritual feeling of the day.

On Saturday morning I woke up to the sound of rain and thought “Oh no…not today!!”. I knew that Jemima and Winston had set aside lots of time to take photos outside with Winnie Forbes and I could hardly wait to film their wedding and get some beautiful shots for their Same Day Edit. Thankfully by noon the skies cleared up and it turned out to be a beautiful late summer day…just in time for a sweet First Glance by the fountain at the Bellevue Club Hotel.
We LOVE to shoot at St. James…lucky for our clients the coordinators there love us too because we are able to create beautiful videos for our couples while still respecting their guidelines. It’s such a beautiful cathedral and Father Ryan is so warm and welcoming. Some of his words got me choked up this time, especially when I glanced over at Chris and though how lucky I am to be able to work alongside my husband and capture these amazing moments for our clients.
After the ceremony I jumped into the van (a.k.a. the edit-mobile) and started editing while Chris and Garrett filmed the newlyweds at Kerry Park and Parson’s Garden. By that time we were hungry and thirsty. There was a kid with a lemonade stand near Kerry Park who was awfully happy when Chris went over and ordered three lemonades, three bottles of water, and three Twizzlers. That totally hit the spot!
With the photo session complete, we all headed to Salty’s on Alki for the reception. What else can you say about the view of Seattle at Salty’s other than “WOW!”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been there, but I still just LOVE the view. And it’s so cool to be there long enough to see the light change from daylight to sunset then into night when all the lights come on. It’s simply stunning and the guests really enjoy snapping tons of pictures of the skyline. As if the skyline and scrumptious food wasn’t enough, the guests also got to enjoy a photo booth, the Same Day Edit and a First Dance with some special “Rock the Reception” style dancing! I was OUTSIDE in the edit-mobile making DVD copies and could hear the hooting and hollering! It was great!
As we got ready to leave I made sure to find Winston and Jemima to say goodnight. Winston said “We knew the Same Day Edit was going to be amazing, but that just totally blew us out of the water! Thank you sooo much for such an amazing video!” and as I walked back to the car I over heard another guest telling Chris how cool it was to see everything they missed that day and how much Winston & Jemima would treasure the video in the future. It’s so neat to me to think that as much as they love their video now, it will only appreciate in value and importance in their family history. How cool is that?

Just a few weeks before their wedding, Tonie & Renato decided to upgrade to a Same Day Edit. I told them not to tell anyone so that it would be a surprise. We are also filming Tonie’s cousin’s wedding (Reza & Ryan) in September and they ARE getting a Same Day Edit. So we thought it would be fun to see Reza & Ryan’s reaction!
Tonie saw Juliette & Mark’s Same Day Edit (posted in January) and fell in love with it. Basically Tonie said she wanted hers to be just like Juliette’s. So we used the same music and even a few of the same shots of the church (since the church doesn’t change!).
Tonie did an amazing job planning her wedding as everything went as planned and on time! Of course Ed from the Wedding DJ’s and Lisa from the W Hotel did a fabulous job at keeping everything on track during the reception so Tonie didn’t have to worry about that part!
When we played the Same Day Edit at the reception, everyone cheered and cried…it was great! And the rest of the night we had so many guests coming up to us asking for business cards. I think we are officially the family videographers! Even the photographers were in tears and immediately said they would put us on their referral list.
A huge thank you to Dawn and Chris for doing an awesome job shooting!

On September 23, 2006 we shot a gorgeous wedding at St. James Cathedral with the reception in the Spanish Ballroom at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. This couple is from Manhattan in New York City so they hired Wendy who put together a sophisticated and elegant affair. We worked with GH Kim Photography, a husband and wife team who are very quiet but sweet and easy to get along with. I also love their work on their website and they have generously shared photos of this wedding for their DVD covers!
OK, enough talk, here is their video! Just click to start playing.
