With the light rain falling outside this morning, it seemed like the perfect day to share this fall wedding. On Qui and Can's wedding day at Nestldown in Los Gatos, it sprinkled all morning and cleared up just in time for the ceremony and photos. With the pitter-patter of rain outside everyone got ready in the warmth of the house overlooking the barn and pond. I love the way we were able to shoot the first sight on the covered deck and capture that sweet moment when these two saw each other for the first time on their big day.
With Qie and Can all snuggled up and warm in the barn, we headed to the redwoods to get some B-roll. The footage we got was worth every minute we spent in the rain, it turned out gorgeous. The redwoods and ferns are always a striking sight, but filming them in the rain was breathtaking.
Nestldown offers great opportunities for natural light photography and cinematography and with Lindsey and Nathan (from Bellalu Photography) by our sides, we were able to take full advantage of it. One of our favorite things about Nestldown is the orchards. In the fall, the persimmon trees light up with fiery jewel tones and on this day the wet leaves made them even more vibrant.
"We absolutely love the highlights film and watched it over and over again!!!! Thank you so much for capturing our wedding and for making such a wonderful film!! I also shared the highlights film with our guests and family, and it received so many compliments! We had a great time getting to know you and Rose, and working with you!"
