Burt + Lily // A Beachside SDE

Two great people. Perhaps keeping it simple is best. Burt + Lily are truly generous in all that they do, so when 400 or their closest friends and family showed up to see them exchange vows, it is no surprise to us that there was a huge outpouring of love and support.

Filmed and edited on location in Huntington Beach, this edit incorporates some of the storyline of the day. The girls discussed placing for the ceremony over pizza and the guys pointed out the engravings in the wedding rings.

You'll notice a very cool part of the Persian ceremony in which women grind sugar over the heads of Burt + Lily. In Persian tradition, this is to symbolize how their lives will be filled with sweetness and happiness.

A very large shout out and congratulations to Burt + Lily!

This Video was just the most emotional thing for me. It was such a surprise to see all the cherished events leading up to the ceremony before the evening was over. Many kudos to SML for the wonderful visuals. I will definitely recommend you to anyone needing true professionals!!!

How fabulous it was to see the beautiful ceremony recaptured, but also to remember the good old times with my nephew Burt through pictures -- very emotional! I also really enjoyed the pictures of our beautiful Lily! Thanks for a fabulous job! Congratulations Lily & Burt!! We love you!

Steve, you and your guys were great to work through the whole day. Lily and I were very excited to see the Same Day Edit at the reception. Once we saw it we were amazed at the quality of the video. The editing of the day's events to the song we asked you to put it to was awesome. If this short video is any indication of the final wedding video we will be awestruck!

The video of the same day edit was absolutely incredible. I have never seen a wedding video done so quickly and put together without any flaws. It was moving and breath-taking. I wish my wedding video had 1% of the quality Burt and Lily's had. Congrats on a superb job.

WOW, absolutely fantastic video, nice filming with local scenes set the tone. I felt like I was watching a movie trailor for a moment. It was very professional and well coordinated with music, tells a great story: The Burt & Lily's Opening Act! Keep up the good work!

It's hard to believe this was done in a matter of hours. The wedding was fantastic and you guys captured the event unbelievably well. If this is what you do in a only a couple hours, I am so excited to see the full length!

The wedding was very beautiful and the ability to put bits and pieces on video in less then 3 hours for all to watch was amazing. The Same Day Edit crew did a fantastic job. Congratulations, Lily and Burt!!!

That video was definitely one of the highlights of the evening. Hard to believe it only took place a couple hours before. I don't think I've ever seen a video look that good that was done so fast. kudos and congrats to Burt and Lily!

The video was definitely one of the highlights of the evening, it is hard to believe that the reception had only been a couple hours before. Probably the best video I've ever seen that was edited in such a short time frame. Kudos, and congrats to Burt and Lily!
