Well, Same Day Edits are always a huge rush to shoot and edit in the same day. This instance was no different. Owen is a super-gifted. all-pro tight end for the Houston Texans and Angela is a prosecutor for the DA in Houston. They're both friends with a few of our favorite couples (Janna & Brian: 31FILMS Weddings and Xochy & Todd vimeo.com/9681243 - just to name a couple) and after seeing Janna & Brian's SDE at their wedding, they knew thats what they wanted for theirs. Given all of those factors - we knew we had to create something really special for them.
After meeting with them - we knew this was going to be like fish in a barrel. They are honestly the most down to earth couple we've worked with. They're just unapologetically in love with each other, and "joyous laughter" might as well be their middle names. It was obvious where it all comes from when we were able to see their family interact with them. It's always such a great feeling when you first meet a client, and they instantly treat you like you've been close friends for years. We knew this SDE was going to be a blast!
Well - wedding day finally came, and it was perfect. Everything was so gorgeous, they had so much fun, and they just exuded love all day. From the constant laughter in the morning, to her AMAZING gift (her family's restored Lincoln Continental) - and from their heartfelt letters for each other to their perfectly elegant ceremony and reception. We were able to finish their Highlight Film about an hour ahead of schedule, and it played on the big screen at their Reception with them and all of their guests seeing it all for the first time. That's always the most nerve-wracking point for us - but when you see the tears and the laughter, you know it all went just right.
Of course - nights like this are so great because amazing wedding pros are there to help make them happen. This wedding was the all-star list. Planned by one of our favorites: Emily Moise at Keely Thorne events, and we worked along some of the best in the business all night - specifically Joe Cogliandro and his crew, who were capturing all of the amazing stills that were showcased on screens throughout the night.
Cheers to Owen and Angela Daniels on a gorgeous wedding and a beautiful marriage!
