Emily + Darrin – Same Day Edit

Wow! What a weekend! We had an absolute blast filming Emily and Darrin’s wedding last Saturday at Salishan Spa and Golf Resort on the Oregon coastline. They are two of the nicest and most genuine people we’ve had the pleasure of working with and they certainly know how to throw a major party!

Emily and Darrin’s wedding was the debut of our Same Day Edit. Also known in the industry as the Wedding Day Edit, this is a short highlight montage stylistically edited as only Ambient Sky can on your wedding day within just a couple hours of being captured. This can also be added to your presentation of a photomontage and /or one of our Engagement Films. Then, we project it onto a big screen at your reception. Needless to say it was an absolute hit as the guests couldn’t believe they were watching footage from earlier that day! The true payoff for us was Emily and Darrin as well as their family and friends telling us repeatedly how much they enjoyed it and how appreciative they were of our hard work.

Even though they planned the event themselves, they still hired two of the Portland’s best Wedding Coordinators in Christie Wilson and Cindy Rosen from Blush Bridal Consultation Group to handle the day of coordination. As I’ve said here before, even if you want to plan your own wedding, you should at least consider hiring a professional to coordinate the day of… It will be less stressful for you and your family, I guarantee it. We also got to work with our good friend and photographer extraordinaire Kathryn Elsesser again. A special thank you to Rachael from Salishan as well for being so helpful and accommodating and even letting us use her office during the day.

We hope you enjoy Emily and Darrin’s Same Day Edit. If you want to make this unique experience part of your special day, please get in touch with us. We have a very special offer for new and existing customers to either add or include our Same Day Edit in your cinematography package.

Brittany + Tyler – The Highlights

I had planned to try and write something eloquent here that conveyed how much Amanda and I enjoyed working with Brittany and Tyler and their families and then include the testimonial that Brittany sent to us shortly after receiving their Wedding Film. The only problem was that I felt like nothing I wrote compared to the incredibly flattering and appreciative words that Brittany wrote about us and the Wedding Film we created for her and Tyler. We do not solicit testimonials from our couples, Brittany sent us this simply because they felt other couples should know the importance of their experience with us.

“I think deciding to book Ambient Sky to shoot our wedding was one of the best decisions we made concerning the day. Originally, we had thought that we wouldn’t even book a videographer—other wedding videos we have seen seemed cheesy and cheap. Now that we have our video, I am sad to think of what it would be like to not have this wonderful piece of our wedding. Scott captured the mood, smiles, tears, music, and uniqueness of our day. There are things on our wedding video that we missed or had forgotten, and it brings tears to my eyes when I see it all so beautifully put together. It was worth both the money and the wait. On our wedding day, Scott was there early and stayed late. He was unobtrusive and professional, yet he seems to have captured everything from this special moment in our lives. Scott’s professionalism, talent, and work ethic made our wedding video something that accurately portrays our special day in our own unique way.

Thanks!
Brittany”

This is what makes what we do so wonderful. To be able to help a family remember one of their most important days in a tasteful, elegant and entertaining way is one of the most gratifying experiences for Amanda and I.

Thank you Brittany & Tyler and both of your families for being so great to work with and for being so appreciative. We wish you nothing but the best in your life together.

Below is the Wedding Day Highlights chapter from their Wedding Film. They were married at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church and had their reception at the Red Lion Hotel On The River – Jantzen Beach.

Sara + Ben – Reception & First Dance

We wanted to give you all an idea of what the reception portion of our wedding films look like. Here is Sara and Ben’s Reception Montage that goes right into their first dance. They were a fun loving couple who were as relaxed as any couple we’ve seen on their wedding day. It was an honor to be a part of their day and to be able to create what we believe will be their most cherished memento from their wedding day…other than each other of course! 🙂

After having shot a number of weddings over the years, I have to say that going right into your first dance after you’ve been announced is a great way to start your party. There’s no time to get nervous, everyones cheering for you and you’ve just married the love of your life, so take that confidence and euphoria right out onto the dance floor!

As you can see in this video, Sara and Ben didn’t have a care in the world on their wedding day….wanna know why? They hired our friends over at Blush Bridal Consultation Group to help them coordinate the wedding of their dreams. Maybe you’re extremely organized and would prefer to do all the planning your self though… You may still want to consider at least hiring a bridal consultant to just help out on your wedding day. It’s the best way to ensure you and your family, mainly the moms out there, 😉 get to enjoy your wedding without having to worry about all the little details. You’ll even see Michelle and Jennifer from Blush holding the door open for Sara and Ben as they make their grand Entrance!
