Gretchen + Matt | 6.30.2012| Same Day Edit by Orange Wedding Films
Great Chemical Mix for Wedding for Same Day Edit (in my book): really nice venue director (and the crew), DJ who wouldn't do a thing without photographer/cinematographer, fun bridal party, great families and friends, additional sound system on our own for SDE, solid film/editing crew, and of course, the amazing couple. Not gonna lie, yesterday, we had'em all.
Everything took place at my backyard, Arlington Heights Metropolis Ballroom.
While Gretchen was getting ready at brial suite, laughters never stopped along with some tears here and there. Thanks to Matt for the beautiful card AND the letter!
Those moments made Mrs.Orange teared up a couple of times while she was working on SDE, too! (yeh, yeh, me, too, LOL!)
I knew Matt was a fun, warm, and kind person from the moment that I met him at our studio. They both have been extremely supportive to us from the day 1, and I am so thankful to have couples like them.
There were some obstacles for SDE process, but everyone dealt with it, and overcame to present one kick ass SDE to the couple, and their families and friends.
MAd props to Mike (conducted the ceremony) who gave us one strong rule during the ceremony for photographers/cinematographers: THERE IS NO RULE! How awesome was that.
It was truly great working with Michael and his crew from Metropolis Ballroom. I really wish all the venue directors out there would work like him. Very kind, so much attention to every details (rose petal around the bride's shoes with G, yep, done by him), and know how to have fun as well. I think I convinced him to offer some workshop "how to be an awesome venue director 101", LOL!
It was great working with Curt, and his assistant again. Everyone at the dance floor was having so much.
We also had audio aid from Jeff from "Just Press and Play". Sound for SDE was incredible because of his help. s
Monika and Rob was the photographers (from Better Looking Studio), and it was really great working with them.
And lastly, our crew, Charlie Garcia, and Mrs.Orange, who helped every inch of making this SDE so memorable, and FUN at the same time. Couldn't have done without you guys.
Matt and Gretchen, congratulations, and thank you, thank you, thank you from bottom of my heart. Enjoy your honeymoon, and married life!!!
