Add Some Color To Your Dance Floor

A “Reel”y Good Idea #2

To add some color and visual appeal to their dance floor, Joe and Sofia strung paper lanterns and white lights as an alternative to the usual LED uplighting. As you can see in this video clip, it really added visual impact to their video and photos. But lights alone aren’t going to get people on the dance floor. You need a DJ who knows how to work a crowd and Bryan from Music and More didn’t disappoint. They definitely had a great time at their Nov. 6, 2010 wedding at Viaggio Winery.

Dorissa and Theron

We’re only a few days into the New Year and we’ve already shot our first wedding of 2011. We were fortunate enough to be part of Dorissa and Theron’s “Dream Team” last night for their wedding at the Citizen Hotel. Dorissa was a last minute booking for us. She actually only booked us two weeks ago, thanks to the generosity of her uncle who understood the need for video. And Dorissa’s wedding was certainly video-worthy! She did something that we’ve never seen in our 175+ weddings we’ve shot — she walked down the aisle while singing a song to her husband-to-be. Not only does she have a great voice, but what guts too!

Don’t Forget the Trial Run of the Eyelashes…

A “Reel”y Good Idea #1

Most brides schedule a hair trial with their hairstylist to make sure there are no surprises on their big day. But not all brides remember to do a makeup trial where they practice wearing false eyelashes. If you’ve never worn them before, it will take some getting used to and you don’t want that trial period happening on your wedding day. When I’m in the bridal suite with brides as they get ready, I notice that a lot of brides aren’t used to the weight of the lashes nor the scraping you can feel in the corner of your eye. The sensation can also make your eyes water. So take the time in the weeks leading up to your wedding to practice wearing the lashes!
