Me and Tiff first met Eva and Adrian at the Portland Bridal Show. When we Skyped a couple months later it was nice to recognize their faces. We had a lot of fun on the call brainstorming and tossing ideas around about how to film their wedding. The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Mt. Angel and the reception was at Zenith Vineyard in Salem, and Adrian had lots of cool shots that he wanted with the drone around the venue. It was cool he was so stoked on geeking out about different shots and I think we were able to capture his vision.
There were so many new things for me at this wedding. First I’d never been to a full mass, and had no idea what all went into a service, but it was kinda nice to see some of the rituals that I had only heard about. Also during the reception the balloon game was wild!(it’s in the film) And I especially loved the mariachi band and the groom dance, where Adrian had to wear an apron and hold a broom.(that’s in the film too:) My mom is full Mexican and from a huge family, but we never got to see them after we moved to Oregon, and I wonder how many parties like this I missed, so this was especially fun for me to be a part of and it all felt very familiar.
Loved the sunset shots and I loved shooting under the elaborate ceiling of the church. Really cool to have so much variation in setting all in one day. Also we both just loved Eva and Adrian and impressed us as such happy and kind people.
Hope you like the film and Much Loves,
