There's always something magical about weddings in the desert. I loved this classy wedding with all the beautiful details and delicious food. The wedding took place at the Charles Farrell Estate in Palm Springs. Charles was a movie star during the silent era and was one of the first Hollywood Moguls responsible for putting Palm Springs on the map. He started the first racket club and made the area a trendy spot for celebrities to vacation.
Today I would like to share a video we made for the Law Clinic of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. It's the story of a student attorney named, Sarah, who gained real life experience working at the clinic as she represented a young mother, Yesenia, and her Parents who were on the verge of deportation.
"In all the years I spent looking for you, the one thing I never expected was that you'd already be the mother of our children..." Josh said to his bride during their vows. Please enjoy this story of a beautiful blended family coming together in the picturesque countryside near Glacier National Park, Montana. Be sure to check the wedding blogs it has been featured on at Rocky Mountain Bride, Wedding Fanatic, and The Knot as well.
Chad and Jessica want you at their wedding. Earlier this year we put together a film telling their story, and since then it has been gaining lots of exposure. The film tells their love story, but the idea they have for their wedding is what's crazy. They are inviting the general public to attend the wedding reception. I've never heard of anything like it - I could never do it. But you know what, they're taking a risk and trying something new, and I love that. Whether you like this idea or not, they are shaking things up.
This film also marks the beginning of a new tool in the Forrey Films arsenal. The MoVI by Freefly is a gimbal, camera stabilization device, that we started using this year and we can't say enough about it. It's an amazing tool. In fact, this film was our first production with it, and Freefly used one of our shots in a promotional video that was shown at the 2015 NAB conference in Las Vegas. Chad and Jessica's story has also been featured on Thrillist Los Angeles and yesterday clips from the video were shown on an ABC News report. All pretty exciting stuff, and we can't wait to see what's in store for their wedding later this month. Find out more at http://riddersenwedding.com
Stephanie and Tyler were married at an intimate venue called, "The Villa" in San Juan Capistrano. A beautiful courtyard space with old mission styled architecture. You will love the gold colors throughout and her gown. I know other brides will appreciate her unique and dainty flower crown, too. The event was filled with energy with a tight knit group of friends and all the toasts were really thoughtful, funny, and well-prepared. Plus, it makes me glad Stephanie's brother doesn't want to slug his brother-in-law. You'll know what I mean when you watch the film.
