The Wedding Day of Raneda & Marcus

Raneda and Marcus got married at Spanish Hills Country Club on August 27, 2016. This is always one of my favorite venues with lots of great memories, and their wedding was another special one to add to the list. When the best man is a preacher, you can expect some wise words to be spoken, but the atmosphere was truly magical.
This was a customized diamond package with two videographers and three cameras, plus aerial drone coverage. Always great working with Cliff and Gary of The Wedding Music DJs as well!

Surprise Proposal after a Helicopter ride to a Malibu Mountaintop

Wenzhuo treated his girlfriend, Ivy, to a scenic helicopter tour over all of Los Angeles, culminating in a champagne lunch on a private mountaintop in Malibu.  Little did she know, Wenzhuo was about to give the performance of his life, ending it on bended knee.  As a wedding videographer in Los Angeles, it’s not every day I get to jump on a helicopter and fly over the cityscapes myself, so this was a real treat. (I do use the Phantom drone quite often, so I’ve had a bird’s eye view, just not physically been there).

I know it’s been a while since I’ve written about proposal ideas (I really need to get back on that), but here’s one to at the very least, inspire some creative thinking when it comes to the matter of getting a “yes” answer from the one you love.  This was another well planned and truly fun day arranged by the Heart Bandits.  I highly recommend them if you need help or simply just want to make the most spectacular marriage proposal possible.

Here’s a full account of last Saturday’s action.


Backlog of Edits…

Just a quick message to explain the lack of posts lately.  I’ve had the opportunity to work on a few new projects that have forced me to cut back on my wedding editing for a few months.  I love filming weddings, especially in Los Angeles, but having a break from the monotony has been nice.  That said, I’m back in two weeks and gonna be zipping out wedding videos at a rapid pace from then until January.

If you’re reading this, thanks for stopping by and good luck with your wedding planning! 🙂

The Wedding Day of Beth and Chris

Beth and Chris got married in Pasadena, California on June 18, 2016, in adjoining backyards of family/friends houses. It was quite a unique setup, especially challenging as this was again a customized single videographer package, but everything turned out well, and I’m happy to present this as a solid all around representation of the day; full of laughter and tears. The wedding planner, Peggy Kelley of Timeless Celebrations played a major role in things running so smoothly. All around fun day that literally flew by!
