It was truly an honor to travel to Seattle to film this couple's "traditional" wedding. I say "traditional" because over a year earlier, Dave had surprised Heather with "non-traditional" wedding. That's right folks, the groom surprised the bride with a wedding ceremony! The two were on vacation in Tofino, BC. As they strolled along the beach, Dave proposed. After Heather said yes, they made their way further down the beach where a handful of friends and family were waiting, along with a ceremony site and an officiant. Before long, they were officially married! What an amazing story- you can see the pictures here.
Fast forward a while and it was time for the more planned out, traditional event. Heather is from Chicago and Dave is from Saskatchewan, Canada; having the event in Seattle made it a destination wedding for everyone. It was such a blast filming the day- these two are incredibly in love and have the best chemistry. They certainly did not need to be asked to kiss- they couldn't keep their lips off each other! And check out out their smooch at the end of the ceremony- by far the longest I've ever witnessed- I actually had to edit it down a little!
There were great toasts given all through the reception, and Dave's was particularly touching. You can hear part of it here in their highlights:
Heather and Dave, you've been a dream to work with and we thank you for having us there with you on this amazing day. I know you have many happy years ahead of you, culminating with the bucket and the porch.
Heather said, "Thank you so much for the highlights video....it truly captures the emotion of the day! Words just can't describe what it means to us...It is truly moving and wonderful and lovely and just oh-so-perfect! Thank you for being such an amazing part of our day! This video brings everything back and we were so lucky to have found the two of you...your talent, involvement, and care shine through your work."
