"Nothing fancy and stiff, just pure love.", as described perfectly by the bride, this wedding exemplifies the simple beauty of letting genuine emotions flow throughout your big day and trust that we will be there to capture every moment as they happen, unscripted.
Often times, we meet couples before the wedding not knowing a single thing about them, who they are, and what they do. And when we see a groom break into tears unexpectedly in front of our cameras during one of our interviews, we get a great sense of gratitude towards them, for opening themselves to us, a temporary window into their lives and their rawest of emotions. The human heart is an amazing thing, and it shines the most during these times, that is why we love weddings and why we love capturing it. 🙂

What do you do when the church prohibits the exchanging of personal vows during your ceremony? Would you accept it? Would you let a small man-made rule prevent you from expressing your overflowing joy in front of the person you are willing to spend the rest of your life with? Or would you take a moment and realize that this is a once in a lifetime chance to say what you really feel and know that you can always find options (and a dedicated team 😉) to make that special moment happen?
Natz(Lalee), the bride, does watercolor paintings. In fact, all the watercolor elements you'll see in this film were all done by the Natz, including her beautiful wedding dress!
For me, watercolor painting is a perfect analogy of their wedding, the art of watercolor is simple, subtle, and open to flaws and imperfections. Much like their special day, in which the couple kept it simple and real in every way, and both embraced the idea that the day can and may not go smoothly as planned (this includes the fact that we ran late because of SLEX traffic). I remember reporting to the groom about our situation, and he responded with one short chivalrous text reply "Ok, priority si bride, go straight to her nalang." . *kilig much, Nathalie? :) But eventually we got to the place, and i was expecting some questions when we arrived, but no, we were greeted by a smiling Natz, "zenfully" having her makeup on a chair as if we weren't late for almost 1 and a half hours!
I was reminded how nothing is ever really under our control. And much like a watercolor painting, every moment should flow freely with every stroke of the brush and know that the little imperfections of your day are just a small part of a beautiful painting that is your wedding day!

We shared Carlene and Charles' Same Day Edit film a few months back and now we're very happy to present their full wedding film! Still one of our favorites and truly one for the books!
Shoutout to the lovely bride, Carlene, for the amazing soundtrack suggestion! Finally, got to cross one from my bucketlist : "Make a wedding film with a New Order song" ✍️✔️
