Paolo and Jacqueline have become great friends of mine over the past year. Before I even had a chance to meet them in person, Paolo and I had already amassed about 20 full page emails between the two of us. At that point, I was sure of three things: this couple really researched their videography options, they've really thought out what they'd like in their wedding video, and they are truly sentimental and romantic. This aside, they are also both detail orientated, and so it came as no surprise to learn they're both teachers!

Paolo's proposal to Jacqueline was an epic endeavour which he documented on video, so it was immediately apparent how important video was to them. The journey of how they met and fell in love was full of comedy and humour, so the plan was to put together a video to play at the reception for their guests. After many hours of planning, armed with some cameras and wardrobe changes, and with the help of our creative director Paolo, this is what we came up with: vimeo.com/47123163

Needless to say, there was a lot of anticipation in the lead-up to the big day. We got off to an early start for what was to be an action-packed day, and our team was pumped and ready to go. Our plans took a slight turn when we realized that due to a marathon, the Lions Gate Bridge would be closed for part of the morning. Paolo and his best man, Paulo, hopped into a taxi instead of the limo for the ride to the church. Once there, everything was smooth sailing. The wedding ceremony was beautiful, and I really wanted it to be the storytelling centerpiece of this video. God is an important part of Paolo and Jacqueline's lives, naturally also playing an integral role in their creation of a new family, and the Filipino wedding traditions symbolize this beautifully.

As a film maker, creating this video has meant a great deal to me, knowing how much it means to them. I'm so happy for them and look forward to the next chapter in their story.

I'd also like to add that this was my first time working with Paul from Fill In The Blank Studios and it was an awesome experience. His quality really shone and we made a great team.
