Client: Jennifer and Matthew

Date: October 11, 2015

Ceremony & Reception Location: Catta Verdera Country Club, Lincoln, CA

The Couple: We didn’t get an opportunity to get to know this couple ahead of time as they were a last minute booking for us. But what we can say for sure is that these two definitely had a blast at their wedding! Jennifer had a perma-smile the whole day. Filming their photo shoot was so much fun because these two needed no direction from their photographer – their excitement and love for each other was so evident and we were just there to witness the moment instead of directing it. How cool!

What a team!: If you want to be pampered on your wedding day, you must hire the team of vendors that we worked with last night. Rebecca and Barry from Ford Family Photography ( really go the extra mile to make the day a success. Barry is too cute constantly making sure that the couple is hydrated and cool while Rebecca’s calmness and expertise give us plenty of awesome footage to work with. Christina and her team from Catta Verdera always make sure that the wedding goes off without a hitch and one of the cool things they do is make sure that the couple gets to sneak into the ballroom for a room reveal before the guests enter for dinner. Not all venues arrange that and not all photographers are open to giving up a little of their photography time so the couple can get a sneak peek at their vision realized. Finally Steve with Function 45 ( is always a pleasure to work with. He is so creative and can get guests up and out of their seats like no other.

Great Idea: Don’t know if the idea was Steve’s or Jennifer’s but one of the fun things they did was have a “selfie dance” where guests could come up and take a selfie with Jennifer. It’s something that guests are clamoring to do anyway, so why not embrace it and have fun with it!
