Iris + Marcel – San Diego Wedding Films

We had such a great time with Iris and Marcel! They got *lucky* to have the only rainy day this entire fall/winter! So their photo time was cut short, but they didn’t waste any time having a great time despite the weather. Their first look and the first look down the aisle were so emotional and they are just so in love! They are just an all around fun and awesome couple, and you can tell they have no lack of friends with the largest bridal party we’ve seen! Enjoy!!

Hey SidebySide Cinema followers!

We have been posting our highlight films a bunch but you haven’t heard from us in a while. While learning all about parenthood (and still shooting weddings) this past six months, we’ve also been catching up on watching films, one of our favorite pastimes. Are you looking for some inspiration this spring season? Maybe you  just need a break from wedding planning? Then see this movie: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty!

I am telling you, drop everything and go get it. It is such a great movie and so so refreshing. It’s the perfect mix of STORY (on of our favorite elements), character, comedy and romance. It is lighthearted but has amazing themes. We also love to travel and have now added Iceland and Greenland to our list of places we want to visit! Lately we feel like there have been so many films that are based on books, are remakes of older movies, or are just horrible ideas in general with no substance so we just had so much fun with this one.

Beautiful story, beautiful direction, beautiful shots, beautiful soundtrack… this is seriously a work of art!

we have some more films to share with you coming up, stay tuned!

Jacqueline + Matthew – San Diego Wedding Films

What a fun story!! These two have been married for five years and decided to do a vow renewal and a big party. They were pleasantly surprised recently with a pregnancy and are due next month so the celebration was even more special! They celebrated on Valentine’s day and it was a romantic and sweet wedding.

 Nicole and Matt tied the knot at the house where Nicole grew up! They did a great job turning the property into a wedding venue and everything was just lovely. We loved her wedding ring and hair piece, so unique!! What a great couple, we had a great time with you two 🙂
