I love snow, sometimes. I love the first snowfall after a long hot summer. I love a nice snow storm when I am home and snuggled on the couch with my wife watching a movie. But I do not love the snow when it could possibly interfere with a wedding! After a pretty brutal winter I was over the snow and thought we had seen the last of it being March and all – I was wrong.
Jess and Dan’s wedding was a 2 day affair. The first day was a traditional Taiwanese Tea Ceremony followed by the next day’s wedding ceremony and reception. The night before the tea ceremony the skies opened up and snow just dropped down – all night and morning long. We had to get to Long Island for the tea ceremony so we left extra early – with snowfall continuing the whole drive we were worried things would get worse but fortunately they didn’t – we got there with out a hitch and so did all of Jess and Dan’s guests. We were worried that it would continue on and that the actual wedding day would be in jeopardy or just a mess and although the snow continues through the afternoon of the Tea Ceremony the next day was BEAUTIFUL out. It was warm and sunny and the snow left an amazing picturesque view of an already picturesque place, Oheka Castle.
With an amazing team of vendors all brought together by the super talented ladies of Sixpence for your shoe the wedding went off with out an issue.
Jess and Dan were two of the sweetest people we have ever worked with. Their vows to each other were so touching and the little stories we heard them tell about each other while they were getting ready just radiated their love for each other.
Putting together a short film for them was tough with so many beautiful, emotional moments, an amazing location, stunning decor and Chinese Lion Dancers but we were able to fit it all in to one of our best ever!
I hope you all enjoy their short film as much as we enjoyed filming and editing it! Congratulations Jess and Dan!
