Sheila + Cecil || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight || The Modern, Long Beach, CA

The team pulled off an epic same day edit last night at The Modern in Long Beach, complete with helicopter entrance from the bride and groom and — as if that wasn’t enough already — some pretty incredible bboy windmills from the groom to boot (yes, there was lots and lots of spinning).

Sheila and Cecil and their bridal party were tons of fun and there’s plenty of gorgeous work from sirs Christopher Nguyen, Marvin Sola, and Divesh Patel to be seen in this video. Intricately composed slo-mos, dramatic shadow-play, emotional close-ups. It’s one of the favorite same day edits I’ve ever done, and I hope you guys love it too.

Anita + Will || Married || Castaway Burbank

It’s always fun when your couples are down to be total dorks around each other, and Anita and Will were no exception. From Anita jumping on Will’s back during first look, to her roaring during the ceremony, to the both of them funny dancing during their first dance, their sense of fun and play were absolutely contagious. Contrast that with their beautiful venue at Castaway Burbank and a slow, epic soundtrack, and you have a recipe for a pretty special highlight film. Hope you guys think so too.

Congratulations Anita and Will!!

Ailene + David || Star Wars May the Fourth Wedding || Marina City Club

Loved celebrating Star Wars Day with David and Ailene a couple of weeks back. From Death Star calendars to a Millennium Falcon cake topper, their wedding was definitely a nerd’s dream come true. They even commemorated their first kiss by sparking up a pair of lightsabers. All in all, one of the funnest weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting.

Congratulations again you guys, and thank you guys for letting us capture your big day!

Rachelle + Marc || Wedding Highlight Film || Red Rock Country Club, Las Vegas

I’ll just cut straight to it: I’ve never seen more love in a room than at Rachelle and Marc’s reception. A destination wedding at the Red Rock Country Club in Las Vegas, everything about Rachelle and Marc’s wedding was absolutely perfect. Each speech was heartfelt and unique, and you could feel the support emanating from everyone in the room. Not only that, but Rachelle and Marc themselves were just such an awesome couple and I cannot overstate how easy they made our jobs.

If I let myself go on, I’ll end up talking for like 1000 words, so I’ll end with this: thank you guys for absolutely everything, and can you please have a kid soon so we can do it all over again?

Angela + Jason || Wedding Highlight Film || The Harper, Costa Mesa

Dancer weddings are always fun. The bride, groom, and bridal party usually quirky and outgoing and down for anything, which makes our jobs super fun. This wedding was a special one because not only were the venue and clients amazing, but this was also the first time we attempted stop motion for group photos. I think the results turned out pretty well, hope you guys like it too!

Thank you Angela and Jason for being awesome, hope you guys love your film, and thanks for the In-N-Out!

Daphane + Jon || Wedding Highlight Film || Wayfarer’s Chapel

I never thought I’d shoot a Kingdom Hearts wedding. Ever since I was 14 years old, probably even younger, I’ve been obsessed with the video game series. I spent hours playing the game, I collected merch, I wrote fanfiction! And so when I heard Daphane and Jon were huge KH fans, I maybe possibly kind of cried just a little bit lol. These two had a gorgeous wedding over at the all glass Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, followed by a reception at The Grand in Long Beach where they cut their cake with a keyblade and first dance-d to Chikai by Utada Hikaru. You don’t see it in this video, but I also set up a selfie station for them with a “Lucky Emblem” / Hidden Mickey in the background. All in all, my 14 year old heart was very, very happy. Hope you guys like it too!

Vanessa + Neil || Wedding Highlight Film || Marriott Newport Beach

For anyone unfamiliar, Asian weddings can be notoriously long. From Chinese tea ceremonies, to Cambodian hair cutting ceremonies, to traditionally Filipino Catholic masses, to Indian baraats and henna parties, Asian weddings are often multi-day affairs filled with beautiful history and gorgeous traditions. And Vanessa and Neil were lucky enough to fit two in one day!

Jokes aside, I couldn’t help but be touched by how much love and care Vanessa and Neil put into not only celebrating their love, but also each other’s cultures all throughout the day. At the end of the night, they even brought their parents along in dancing to Indian and Filipino music for their parent dances!

All in all, this was definitely one of the most memorable weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. Thank you so so much for allowing us to capture all the fun and love of your big day, and hope you guys love your film as much as we love filming it:)

Second same day edit of the year and it was a good one. Not only were Debbie and Matt super fun, but Matt is also a huge weeaboo, much like the majority of the JustinElement team, which made our jobs even more fun. We experimented a little and the team handled everything like a dream.

Debbie and Matt, thank you so much for allowing us to document your big day, hope you guys had a blast!

Michelle + Matt || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Moniker Warehouse, San Diego

Could not have asked for a better wedding to kick off 2019 with! The team ventured down to San Diego for a whopping 12 hour same day edit day, but honestly it almost didn’t feel like work. Even though there wasn’t a strict “bridal party,” Michelle, Matt, & co. were so much fun to shoot, down to dance and derp and joke and just make our jobs so easy. Plus they cried, so y’know, extra credit.

Thanks so much Michelle and Matt for inviting us to be part of your day, and congratulations again!!

Breanne + Jerome || Wedding Highlight Film || Old Ranch Country Club, Seal Beach

This was a lovely wedding to close out the year with, with probably my favorite first look I’ve ever shot. Justin tried a “Marco Polo” themed first look a couple of weddings ago, and Breanne and Jerome was awesome enough to want to try it too, and it was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Thank you guys for being so sweet and fun and making our jobs so easy!

Congratulations you two, and merry Christmas!

I love this video. I love this couple, I love this venue, I love their song choice, I love how absolutely fun their wedding party was — everything. Inside you’ll find a couple cool things, from Lauren and Adrian’s custom neon sign to a groomsmen pillow fight. Trust me, it’s super fun.

Thank you both for inviting us to your big day, and happy holidays!

Stacey + Jason || Wedding Highlight Film || The Grand, Long Beach

There’s so much I love about this film, I don’t even know where to begin. I love the tarot card stop motion ring shot. I love the closeup of Jay hugging his parents during ceremony. I love the bridesmaids clapping and gassing up the bride during her photo session. I love how perfect and happy Stacey and Jason look during their first dance.

This entire wedding was absolutely perfect and I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did. Congratulations Stacey and Jason, thank you so much for bringing us along for your special day. It was our pleasure to shoot. <3 @dominique

Lauren + Paul || Wedding Highlight Film || Summit House, Fullerton

We had the pleasure of partying Thanksgiving weekend with the newly married Lauren and Paul Carcano at the Summit House in Fullerton. All throughout the day, our couple was nothing but warm and welcoming and it made our jobs just so easy and pleasant. The wedding itself of course, was super fun too, especially Lauren’s mom’s special “lullaby” which she graciously re-enacted for everyone during the reception, and which you can catch a glimpse of here. Thank you Lauren and Paul for letting us document your special day and congratulations guys!

Trina + Alan || Wedding Highlight Film || Long Beach, CA

It’s very exciting to be so close to the end of the year. Looking back and seeing how much our team has grown and learned is just so encouraging. Things that happened only with maximum effort and constant reminders now just happen, and happen well. Alan and Trina’s wedding was no exception. That, and the fact that I love the song the couple chose, made this edit a breeze. Hope you guys like it too:)Enjoy!
