This is a bit of a late post, as I was forced to delay finishing Idalia and Juan’s video a few times due to a handful of personal events, combined with the much slower pace I have with weddings entirely in Spanish. They got married on July 9, 2016 at Our Lady of Victory Church in Compton, CA. The reception followed at Casa de Lago in Orange, California. Bridal prep was filmed at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton in Anaheim, along with bridal party pics and a first look at a nearby park.
This was a long but very sweet day for me. As many weddings are and I forget to mention, a previous couple that I was very fond of had referred me to Idalia, and they were at the wedding. It always feels like family on these occasions, which makes “working” that much more enjoyable. (Even if I am ALWAYS on my toes due to lack of fluent Spanish speaking skills.)
Either way, it was a rather rough Fall for me, and keeping my concentration on editing a Love Story can be difficult when going through trying times. Add the language barrier and this became a tough one to stay focused on, especially when I am making an extra concerted effort to make every edit original from their friend’s video.
Alas, I finished it a few weeks ago, more than twice the time it takes me normally, and here it is. An extended movie trailer for Idalia and Juan, a couple that I could truly feel pure and genuine love radiate from.
