Not every time do we get the opportunity to know our clients or to connect with them as with this couple. It’s already been about a year now since we were first getting in touch with Chandler and her mom to discuss the possibility of us filming the wedding… and let me tell you, this turned out to be a real special event in so many levels. It has been the first morning wedding we’ve ever filmed, the reception was also different, but more than anything else, Josh and Chandler gave us the opportunity to know them and make a portrait of them and their family in a very personal way. We are SO THANKFUL to have found a couple and their family that trusted us like this.

As a business we are trying to transition into making more personal and authentic work, and this film is just a perfect example. We want to tell stories that feel real and honest. We want to make films that invite the viewer to appreciate the beauty of love and life… and for this we just need to open our eyes and listen carefully, because love and life is all around us.

I realized that we don’t post many completed films on our blog. In fact, this may actually be the very first time we do so. Yes, we are aware of the short attention span of most viewers, but we are daring to do things a little different. We believe in the value of the work we are producing, and this goes beyond the ‘wedding’ scope. These 15 minutes are worth your time.

This time we are sharing an American – Vietnamese story. Sunny being from China and I being from Mexico we can relate to couples from different cultural backgrounds. Relationships like this come with some challenges, but it also has some real nice surprises (and some amazing food!). In the end I think it all comes down to love and communication, two elements that bring us together as people regardless of culture. One more thing about this wedding that we wanted to incorporate in their film was the Tea Ceremony. This tradition is like a formal introduction of the two families and a way to ask permission for the groom to marry the bride. Again I find it very interesting when there are different cultural backgrounds involved. This ceremony is treated with lots of respect towards parents/grandparents/older generations, but in this particular case you could also feel a very special welcoming and warmth coming from Roselynn’s family. I think this is so awesome: witnessing a culture opening its arms and accepting that love can make a family from totally different people…
