Chuck and Jewel Savadelis sent us such a FUN film clip from Emily and Danny's October wedding. It's just fascinating to see how they totally captured the essence of the day with their unique style of filming and production!

Here are a few quick screen shots from the film...

Savadelis Films: Tango At The Ritz

First, a little bit from Jewel Savadelis ...

Emily and Danny, a well traveled couple that share a passion for great food and company, held their nuptuals at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay on October 7, 2008. Emily celebrated her independence by choosing to walk down the aisle by herself, before exchanging personalized vows with Danny on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Emily's favorite uncle sketched the ceremony as it was happening and presented the newlyweds the finished drawing during the reception. Their wedding featured a modern Asian Zen garden theme with details such as Taiwanese mung beans creatively incorporated into the floral arrangements that represented their culture and heritage. The ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton was transformed into a warm and inviting setting, with champagne colored drapery, Asian lanterns hung above the dance floor, and a mixture of kings, queens, and round tables topped by orchids, hydrangeas, roses, and river rocks. The 260 guests were treated to an elaborate 4-course dinner consisting of unique choices like Lobster Salad, Crispy Suckling Pig with Cassoulet, Baby Lamb Chops and Seared Sea Bass. After dinner, the guests took to the dance floor, piled into the photo booth, and enjoyed the elaborate dessert buffet which featured 17 specialty items such as green tea panna cotta, coconut tapioca, and passion mango gel.

So now ... be prepared to grin for three straight minutes as you watch their movie! {make sure the sound is on}

How fantastic was that! SO fun.

If you <click> over to Savadelis Films' website, you'll see that one primary concern of Chuck and Jewel's is that they want to get to know you before your wedding day. They're not just there to take a video of the events ... they're there to capture the emotions, the expressions, the feelings ... of the entire celebration! But that is a mere fraction of the art of their movie-making ... after all is recorded on film, the real artistry begins. Putting it all together in a fashion that is unique and suited to each couple's personalities is when the real skill comes in.  And that is where the Savadelis' shine. A huge thanks to Chuck and Jewel for sharing Emily & Danny's movie with us!
