How to Hire a Videographer - Compliments of Wedding Chicks!

With so many vendors to get lined up for the big day, sometimes Brides and Grooms to be, and even family members helping out, can get a little flustered with where to start. By the time they get to videography, they are simply out of gas and slightly stressed out to say the least. 

I recently teamed up with Amy Squires from Wedding Chicks to write a short article with a few quick pointers to help brides get started when looking for Wedding Videography in Orange County. A very special THANK YOU to Amy for all of her support of Weddings by SML!

Sam and Krista Barton - Same Day Edit

Sam and Krista are not your ordinary couple. In fact, it is their unique tastes that compliment one another so well. From Sam's insistence on rockin' the Converse All Stars with the Groomsmen, to Krista's preference for Pink. . . pink bouquets, pink dresses, pink ties, and even a pair of pink heels for herself, all the attention to detail is what made this wedding stand out. Shot on location at the beautiful Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach.

Working with Tony and Marion from Elegant Photography is always a great time. Their work speaks for itself and their upbeat attitude brings out the best in the photographs they create. A very special thank you to Ryan Anderson from Station Identification for helping us to ensure that the sound for the Same Day Edit played flawlessly. With a distance of over 60 feet from the DJ booth to the projector, the presentation could not have happened without their expertise and professionalism! And as always, Allison from Flower Allie providing beautiful pink roses for the special day.

This one had to be cut in a hurry. With just 3 hours to get everything together, it was a mad dash to the finish line, but we pulled it off in true Weddings by SML style! ENJOY!!!

Ryan and Nika Roback

This vibrant wedding was set in the Hills of Somis, California. Miles of avacado groves and immense estates lined the road as we ascended to the ceremony site. What a great atmosphere for a very loved and celebrated couple. With scenic views from every vantage point, this wedding truly provided some unique footage with colors that made every shot stand out!

A special thank you to Gerry from Smash Event for putting all the pieces together and Ned from Vox DJs for keeping the music flowing throughout the evening!

And a very special thank you to Ryan and Nika for letting us partake in your beautiful day. It was truly an honor.

Here is the trailer for their wedding. Enjoy!

Peter and Megan Foseid - Same Day Edit

WOW. . . what a beautiful wedding. Another perfect day in Dana Point. Shot at St. Edwards Catholic Church overlooking Doheny and beyond, the ceremony was as elegant as could be.

The party moved along without delay straight over to Marbella Country Club where the fun continued long into the night. Working with Amy Squires of Amy Squires Photography is always a pleasure and her work speaks for itself. A very special thanks to Lorraine Keseloff from The Wedding Fairy for helping both families to create such a special and spectacular wedding day. Her planning and communication always keeps the big day moving smoothly. Last, but not least, all would not be the same if it weren't' for Michael Carcano from Carcano DJ for keeping the party rocking 'till the lights came on.

Here is the Same Day Edit we did as a surprise for the newlyweds! Enjoy!!!
