Talk about instant gratification!
Creating a same day edit wedding film is one of our favorite ways to share the experience the medium of film and motion! We were honored to be commissioned to create an on site film edit for this wedding which took place just yesterday. It is called our Same Day Edit or SDE for short. It is an unparalleled way to showcase the wedding for immediate playback at the reception.
Racheal & Jojo were married at their private estate in Auburn, CA and were able to customize an incredible number of different features and aspects of their Tuesday wedding. Guided by the expert designer and planner Grace from Graceful Gatherings and her staff, the wedding guests were treated to surprise after surprise! Showcasing their heritage, a wonderful teepee was erected at the head of the ceremony location pictured here. Lovely floral accents were also added by the Graceful Gatherings staff.
During the bridal preparation portion of the day, we spotted the newest member of their family, Tonto the puppy! In getting a shot of him and the dress hanging in the background, he decided to streach and we were delighted the shot came out as adorable as it did. The crowd reaction was just one big “awwww” during this clip!
Guests and wedding party alike were treated to a beautiful first dance, coupled with a dancing on the clouds effect provided by the DJ. The tent was expertly assembled and included air conditioning, it’s own wooden floor, and intimate vibe that was pleasing for guests and our cameras alike.
One other thing we love creating for our couples is our aerial cinematography. The property pictured here from about 200 ft really provides a unique experience that you just cannot capture from traditional means. We use FAA certified pilots for complete safety and we respect the day by never flying during events (ceremony, grand entrance, etc) or over people at any time.
Enjoy their short film!
Fun fact: So many firsts we spotted at this wedding! First time we saw shaved ice served, first time that ring bearers arrived in dirt bikes with the rings mounted on top, and first time we’ve seen a teepee used in a ceremony such as this. The size of which was doubled just a few days before the wedding…what a dramatic and wonderful last minute change!
