Birds of a Feather | Sunset Cliffs Inspiration Shoot

Wed, May 16 2012 12:34 | Permalink

We're beyond delighted to see our favorite inspiration shoot from 2011 published on Ceremony Magazine's blog! We had such a blast with some of our favorite vendors. Here's what Jen or JenLikes had to say about it in Ceremony Magazine:

Jennifer Nesovic, the event designer behind this concept, weaves the story behind this delightful photo shoot. “Birds of a Feather …Flock Together” Four friends dreaming of their wedding come together in this adorable inspiration shoot full of whimsy. Our “Birds” arrived piled in a Mini Cooper like a clown car, each in a gorgeous dress unique in its own way. Each lovely bird was embellished with feathery handcrafted delights in their hair. A young guitarist strummed along while they entered the delightful seaside escape. A lovely table was set with gorgeous flowers, vintage china, sweets, cake and “magic” tea. On this beautiful sunny day the waves rolled in and crashed against the sea cliffs with a roar. The spray misted over the gorgeous white leather tufted furnishings while the Persian carpet and vintage bobbles glistened in the sun. Seagulls hovered overhead while our own “Bird Brides,” each with their own bouquets, merrily whispered and explored the cliffs. They brandished antique crocheted parasols as they dreamed of the day that they would marry.”

Kathryn + Nathan | Same Day Edit | Estancia La Jolla

Wed, Apr 13 2011 02:11 | Permalink We call our same day edits the "Mad Dash" because we literally dash around like mad (behind the scenes of course) at your wedding, editing the ceremony and making sure everything is perfect to show your ceremony highlights at your reception.

Kathryn's mother and sister hired us for this as a complete surprise to the couple and everyone in the room! Once we were done and 110% satisfied with what we made for them, we were ready to show it! After dinner we started off by playing a photo montage of the two of them growing up, and then of them together. Just as the presentation came to what looked like an end, we surprised the crowd with beautiful shots of Kathryn & Nathan's wedding.

As we stood nervously in the back of the room a guest next to me was crying and laughing. I'm pretty sure she had no idea I was part of team behind the showing, but it cracked me up as she said "SHUT UP, OMG, is this live? Where is this coming from? How did they do this?" and then when it ended she said "OMG, Bob, you're totally hired for my wedding." I considered her tears and comment a major success on our part - thanks girl in the blue dress :)

Here is the same day edit or "Mad Dash" as it was shown on their wedding day. Thank you to Kathryn's mother and sister, Gloria and Gretchen, their incredibly helpful and patient coordinator, Jamie of Ever After Events and Laurel at Estancia for helping us make this magical moment happen for them.

Great Great Great job to their wedding video and mad dash team: Bob, Bryan and Jonathan!!!

p.s. The flowers you see in the ceremony are by Organic Elements, ceremony was officiated by Bob Stevens and the guitarist you see playing in the beginning is Joe Bigham of Bop Gun
