I want to share with you our Save the Date and Same Day Edit videos from the Motion Diaries website. If you're reading this and you're planning your wedding here in the Philippines and still looking for cinematographers, you can check them out , they're really good and so fun to work with.
There are a few parts that really make me laugh, like they're unintentionally funny, or maybe it's just me, lol.
The song in this video is Better Days by Goo Goo Dolls, I love this song, just so right for the vibe we were going for. We posted our Save the Date video on Facebook and tagged those who were invited around July and sent out formal invites a month before the wedding. Shooting this made me realize that I'm so bad at acting, we had several takes for some scenes because I couldn't stop laughing, my goodness. We shot this at Ronac Art Center, San Juan.
This is our Same Day Edit video shown at the reception. The song is I Will by Dia Frampton featuring Blake Shelton. We loved this pair during the first season of The Voice and when we got Dia's album we instantly fell in love with this song and we knew that it's gonna be played at our wedding just like we knew, from the start, that Everything by Lifehouse was going to be my bridal march.
We didn't know the priest who officiated at the wedding personally but we're so happy that it was him who did because he's so funny and he didn't rush the ceremony even if we started an hour late.
We had our wedding preps at Luxent Hotel along Timog Ave., Q.C., the ceremony was held at Our Lady of Consolation Parish, Mira Nila Homes, Q.C., and the reception at Gazebo Royale, Visayas Ave. with set up and decorations by our caterer, Hizon's Catering.
I can say that our Black and White, Rock and Roll wedding went well though there were a few minor mishaps like the bride arriving late at the church, haha, forgetting to bring my earrings to the hotel, misplacing the flower headdresses for the flower girls and not knowing until the end what happened to them, and a few others. We just laughed them off, the only thing I was really worried about that time was the fact that we're already running late, I didn't want to keep our guests waiting.
What I still couldn't get over until now is my church entrance, when the woman assigned to open the door stayed almost at the center like she's welcoming me to her home instead of disappearing behind the door. That could easily be one of the worst church door opening scenes in the wedding history, haha. You can see it at 2:20 time mark on our SDE.
Anyway, this is just a break from my usual craft and DIY project blog posts. I consider this as a part of our anniversary celebration. I hope you enjoyed our videos.
Always celebrate life. Cheers!
