I think I cried buckets when I watched this video with Giant. I can’t even find the words to describe how much I love Mili and Sid from www.memoinmotion.com for documenting our love. I think I watched it over fifteen times yesterday. No joke. Their talent never cease to amaze me. We had so much fun shooting with them. Trashing the dress was so much fun. It was hysterical getting looks and gasps from people at the beach. I would totally recommend all the brides to do it. You have one time in your life to do so. Go at it. Have fun with it. I want to add that I didn’t trash my actual wedding dress. I bought a second wedding dress to trash. I would do it again and again. It was worth every penny. I can’t wait to see the second video montage!!!!
Filming the wedding & love story for melissa & michael was really an exciting experience, especially when it had been awhile since we last shot an american wedding.
The track “kissing” was melissa’s choice but it also happens to also be my fav, and the moment we decided to shooting for it, we knew it had to be magical. Both melissa & michael have done an outstanding job and everything went according to plan. This was a piece where i could intermix many different scenes very well as we wanted to incorporate actual footage with some magical/candid moments, scenes esp proposal scenario & finally trash the dress.
We have to be grateful for the perfect weather/lighting condition on our shoot day. It was cloudy and just like how we wanted it to be for this particular song. Also, a huge thank-you goes to Park Hyatt Hotel manager, who let us film on their premises on such short notice. The opening pool scene of this piece is shot at their indoor pool/spa.
Will also be following up with a wedding/reception ‘actual day’ montage later on.
