One of the best parts of being wedding cinematographers (in our opinion) is really getting to know about our couples and shooting with them on their special day. Every now and then we get the privilege of producing what we like to call a Love Story with them earlier on during their engagement. Filming a Love Story not only gives gives us the chance to get a better understanding of who our couple really is, but it let's us create an awesome and fun piece to show at their reception to all of their family and friends!
Enter Christine and Alex, our lovely couple that met at Gonzaga University and took us around the scenic area of Green Lake in Seattle for their Love Story shooting day. Alex is a witty, fun loving jokester and showed that he has a knack for clever one-liners and the ability to put a smile on just about anyone's face. Christine is a self-proclaimed mini narcoleptic that can fall asleep just about anywhere but loves to dance, is full of life, and had the intrepidness to ask Alex out on the first date. Alex describes her as a "beam of sunlight" and they both displayed such a magnetic and charming chemistry. See for yourself in their Love Story:
The showing of their short film was marked by plenty of smiles and laughter throughout the Alki venue of Salty's overlooking a gorgeous view of a sunset-lit Seattle past the Puget Sound, where the reception was held in the evening. Actually, smiles and laughs were plentiful the entire day as it was a truly joyful occasion for the family and friends of both Christine and Alex. A sunny morning of golf for the guys and prep time for the girls at a beautifully tucked away Mukilteo home led up to a heartwarming ceremony held at Villa Academy in Laurelhurst. After vows were spoken and rings were exchanged, a party bus took our newlywed couple and their wedding party to the reception where the night was danced away. Take a look at their whole wedding film:
If you know of anyone who would adore having a Love Story shown on their wedding day, send them our way and we'd be more than thrilled to make that happen! There's nothing quite like getting to be a part of such a unique experience and for that we thank you, Christine and Alex! Here's to the lovely couple and to all of our future couples who we have yet to meet!
