GOLD VENDOR OF THE MONTH
I am just so excited to announce that I will be doing a GOLD vendor of the month series starting today! From here on out I will be featuring a vendor that I have had a pleasure of working with and think they are just really AMAZING at what they do! These vendors can be Florist, Hair + Makeup, Photographers, and well you get the point! My goal as a planner to is help brides find the perfect vendor for them. I always tell potential brides in our first consultation that it's incredibly important that when looking into vendors for your BIG day you want to find those who you feel very COMFORTABLE with. It's important because we as vendors do everything we can to provide you with our best work and sometimes that means getting into those really intimate moments.
So the GOLD vendors of the month will be those vendors that I have personally worked with and know they have amazing work! With that said, I have decided to start off the series with our FIRST GOLD member Holly + David of Your Day Films. Holly and David are friends of mine who really go above and beyond when creating the perfect wedding day film for their clients. They listen to every little detail that their clients mention and find the most JOYFUL moments to put in their wedding film. It's my biggest regret to this day not hiring a videographer for my own wedding. Although we had a great photographer there is nothing like TRULY reliving the night through film. If you are still looking for a videographer to capture your wedding day then look no further as I am sure that Holly + David would be the right fit for you. Below is a fun Q and A I recently had with them.
What does a Your Day Film look like?
We take a story-driven approach to your film, telling the unique story of your special day. We know that you’ve worked on planning this day for so long, and there is only one wedding exactly like yours. We use a cinematic story-telling style that incorporates meaningful spoken moments from your ceremony and speeches, in addition to carefully curated music to fit the feel of you as a couple and your day. We also like including a different perspective of your day through aerial drone shots when it helps tell your story. Check out yourdayfilms.com to see what we mean!
What part of a wedding is your favorite to capture on camera?
It totally depends on the wedding! Every wedding and couple is different, and so our favorite parts vary depending on the couple. However, I (Holly) am a sucker for a heartfelt ceremony. Being a husband and wife team, it’s really cool to work together at weddings and be reminded of how our love began and how special wedding vows are. We also love capturing dancing. At this point of a wedding you’re celebrating being married and enjoying friends and family. Nothing much is better than watching couples enjoy their day with their guests, celebrating on the dance floor.
Do you do anything special for your brides throughout the planning process?
We love getting to know our couples! Not only is it fun for us, and a way to make new friends, but it helps us tell your unique story. We like to take our new couples out for dinner or drinks before the wedding so that we all can have the opportunity to get to know each other! This also helps you feel more comfortable with us and our cameras on your wedding day.
What are some of your favorite things to do?
When we're not telling stories, you can usually find us watching the ducks on the Rivers of America in Disneyland or in line at Toy Story Midway Mania in California Adventure. In 2014, after 7 years of watching Holly run half marathons and triathlons, David finally caved and signed up and joined her in the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon. Finishing with a respectable time, he decided that running wasn't the worst thing in the world, and together we have now run six half marathons and the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon.
We also love traveling and seeing as much of the world as possible. David is an aviation nut, so this works out perfectly. So far we've been to 19 states and 8 countries and are actively seeking to expand that list.
We are also the proud parents of two labrador retrievers. Treated as members of the family, these dogs bring so much joy to our lives we can hardly stand it. Trips to the dog beach, hikes, and plenty of ball throwing happen often.
