Christina & Matt had the wedding of their dreams at The Bourne Mansion in Oakdale, New York proving that A LOT of planning can really pay-off (great job Christina)! The story begins at The Wedding Salon in Manhasset, Long Island. Christina was there for one of her scheduled fittings. We already interviewed her and specifically asked all about her dress. This is how we typically incorporate voice-overs into a short Wedding Preview Film (as well as the final Wedding Feature Film). I’m sure you’ll agree Christina’s Monique Lhuillier wedding dress was breathtaking and her Oscar de la Renta wedding shoes were the perfect addition. Sometimes we film other “wedding-related” moments giving us the opportunity to dig much deeper into the story. So I took Christina’s experience and “connected” it to her actual wedding day. Connecting with our couples is the primary way we continue to innovate and push the limits of modern day wedding cinematography. In addition there were so many once-in-a-lifetime moments at the wedding it was almost sensory overload. Filming Christina’s 90+ years old Grandparents (married over 65 years) dancing was precious. Of course we can’t forget about Matt. People are still talking about the hijinks surrounding Matt and the guys getting ready at The Roslyn Hotel, Long Island. I guess you had to be there. Unless there was somebody there to film it (wink wink). St. Mary’s Church looked beautiful and Father Frank is really a very special person. His ceremony was very heartfelt. Christina & Matt decided to write their own vows and there wasn’t a dry eye to be found. Afterwards we headed to The Bourne Mansion. The weather was great, Central Park Orchestra was rockin’ and Pedestals Floral Decorators designs were spectacular. I even heard the photographs by Camelot Photography Studios were awesome (great job Rocco). A big thank you to Christina & Matt for the honor of creating their Film(s). A special mention to Christina’s Mom (you’re the best) and our friends at The Wedding Salon in Manhasset, Long Island for always being so accommodating and nice.
Hope you love the film! david [DMS]
