Liz and Chris – San Diego Wedding Films

Talk about the details! Liz and Chris really had an eye for the small details, from his suit and tie, to her necklace down the back, to his watch and groomsman gifts, to her wardrobe change during the reception, so many fun things to see at this event!

They had their whole day at the same location, from getting ready to dancing. The ceremony and photo time were just beautiful and the reception was so much fun. These two really cared about the dancing and party time and they sure knew their crowd. The dancing was so much fun and everyone got a kick out of Liz’s dancing outfit!

Hope you enjoy this super fun wedding!

Happy 2024!

January is almost over and I’m finally posting a 2023 wrap up! This year has been the year of never getting around to sharing wedding films, but maybe this year will be better, all these beautiful days need to be shared! For now, here’s a glimpse of last year’s events. Every year we get so excited to see the new and personal touches that couples bring to their events. Some fun things from ’23 included donkeys, a champagne wall where you’d ring a bell and white gloved hands would bring out a drink, a rose wall for name cards, violins, mariachi, fire dancers, bands, a groom entrance in a mini car, religious traditions, cultural traditions, barbie, a floating cake, s’mores and so much more.

More than anything, this year has reinforced to us how important it is to remember all the beautiful and personal and heartfelt parts of your day, with photos AND videos. Being able to tell wedding day stories is a dream job and we’re so thankful for all our couples, vendor friends, friends and family who refer us and support our business. Please continue to share our work and send us to any friends and family getting married next year. We would love to work with them!

Happy New Year and Thank you thank you!!

Merry Christmas 2023 from SidebySide Cinema!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your friendly neighborhood videographers! Enjoy our silly tradition and once a year personal video that we share. All 17 years we’ve been together 🙂

Check out our previous years!! 20222021202020192018201720162015, 2014201320122012 bloopers, 20112011 bloopers201020092008 & 2007

This year we used AI for our card and video. We generated the above images with “family of four, dog, cats, and chickens” and these are what it came up with, hah! And for the video, we used chat GPT to write the script and we followed the script completely! Except we added the laugh track. Enjoy!

And here’s the story behind the tradition: We got married November 2007 so by the time we got back from our honeymoon and moving and all the wedding/marriage things, we just didn’t even think about Christmas cards that first year. So in the 11th hour, literally on Christmas Eve, we thought of making that very first video. It took no time at all and it was just silly. Then we said to ourselves, “we should do this every year!” And then we did! They have clearly gotten more involved over the years and we’ve included our kids and animals but they are no more well planned. We always have a whole year to figure out an idea and every single time we wait until the last minute…So enjoy our silly little tradition (last minute as usual)…

Michael + Khushboo – La Jolla Wedding

I love when couples are able to include some of their family traditions into weddings. Combining both Indian and American traditions was just a beautiful thing at Michael and Khushboo’s beautiful La Jolla Shores wedding. They had a beautiful San Diego sunny day for their wedding. The ceremony was on the beach with the sound of waves in the background, so beautiful. Cocktail hour was at the hotel while the two of them took some lovely photos on the beach. Their reception was so fun with a photobooth, dancing and fun speeches.

We hope you enjoy watching this wedding highlight as much as we enjoyed filming and editing it!!

Evelyn + Nick – Sunset Cliffs Wedding

Evelyn and Nick had a gorgeous ceremony overlooking Sunset Cliffs. The weather was cloudy and windy but the images looked so incredibly beautiful because of it! I mean look at this video, they are just gorgeous! They got ready in Coronado and did some photos there first. Then we headed to the cliffs for the ceremony. The set up was so cool too with the triangle altar and the rug aisle. It was a very meaningful ceremony and their friends and family were just full of love for the happy couple.

After the ceremony we headed to Liberty Station for the reception at Stone Brewery. They rented out the whole patio for their reception which was very cool! We loved the look and their wonderful friends and family helped set everything up and decorate. The food was amazing and they did a pinata later in the evening along with fun dancing and sparkler photos.

We hope you enjoy this beautiful wedding!!

Jessica + Robbie – Thursday Club Wedding

Jessica and Robbie’s epic first look location started things off amazingly on their wedding day! It was a blustery day but the overcast light made it so we could see the ocean during their first look and ceremony. We loved all the beautiful views. During the ceremony when Jessica’s dad walked her down the aisle, her veil went wild in the wind and her dad had to hold onto it. These are the things we LOVE to capture, that are so great in video, that will make you smile for years to come.

The reception was at the Thursday club and they did a champagne pyramid pour which was so fun. They also had a live saxophonist playing during the dancing time! We loved working with you both and hope everyone enjoys their wedding film!

Andrea and Andrew – Omni Rancho Las Palmas

These THREE had a wonderful wedding celebration in Palm Springs! Andrea and Andrew got married but postponed their wedding celebration a few times and in the meantime had a beautiful squishy baby boy. I love when people get to include their children into wedding ceremonies but it’s especially cute when it’s a baby! They also included their dog in the ceremony as well, so adorable!

The ceremony was beautiful with a gorgeous Palm Springs backdrop. I loved all the photo time they got with the mountains and just the beauty around. The reception was on a rooftop and it was so incredibly beautiful! The dog was with them for the grand entrance which was fun and then their baby joined in the first dance.

Everything was so beautiful and I loved all the candle light beauty. We hope you enjoy!!
