It’s the look in the groom’s eyes when he sees his bride for the first time that reminds us why wedding films are so special. Capturing that raw emotion that pics alone can miss, Pure Cinema Productions shows us how beautiful of a memento a video can really be. See what we mean and watch each magical moment coordinated by Intertwined Events – from the coastal ceremony to the elegant reception – in this short right here.

….We love filming weddings in Newport Beach, California. Something about the smell of the ocean, the views of the coastal hills and the California vibes just does it for us. Add in an absolutely stunning couple who are madly in love with each other and you’ve got a formula for a magical day. Ellen & Adam’s wedding was just that – magical. We knew from their first look that it would be an amazing day. There was just something special about watching Adam watch his future bride walk towards him for the first time in her beautiful dress. The look in his eyes and the smile on his face. It reminded me that we are filming one of the most special days in their lives. The rest of the day was not much different. Ellen & Adam married on the lawn overlooking the ocean before moving inside for their dinner reception and party. We loved every moment of filming this wedding – and hope you enjoy their Highlight film!
