” You lived a couple of miles away from each other but you had to move to California to meet?!” – Jaclyn’s Grandmother
We here at Life Stage Films like an interesting love story. Jaclyn and Johnny actually BOTH grew up here in NC (Greensboro). But actually met by being set up on a date by a mutual friend nearly 3,000 miles away in Redondo Beach, CA where they both work. The rest is history, as you can tell from this heartfelt wedding film.
I had the privilege of filming with one of my fellow colleagues and friend Loyd Calomay, and both of us felt right at home with these two families. Such a fun day, NOT just because we filmed a wedding at the beach in a pretty unique suburb of LA, but because this wedding was REAL. Every emotion, every spoken word, every laugh, was REAL. We like filming REAL moments. These folks were celebrating. And Loyd and I both saw the evidence of why everyone was so thrilled these two, Jaclyn and Johnny, found each other.
Things I liked about this wedding as evident in the highlights film:
Their dog was in the wedding. LA beach culture. Hilarious surprise first dance. Johnny’s face when he sees Jaclyn walking toward him at the altar. Their personal written vows.
Thank you!! Thank you for inviting us all the way across the country to film this day for you. You trusted us, and we hope you enjoy the moments we captured. Let’s hang out next time you come back to NC or an APPSTATE Homecoming game.
