Jillian + Michael
Jill and Mike are such a great couple. I am so glad they chose me to shoot a wedding film for them. From the minute I met them back at that Starbucks, I knew that their day would be special.
Mike designed a ring for Jill to wear on her right hand that used stones from his grandmother’s ring. His grandmother wanted Jill to have it after she passed away. Jill had no idea about this until she received the ring, and heard it’s story just moments before the ceremony. Watching her receive that ring is one of the best moments I have ever filmed. I teared up multiple times while editing this film when I got to that part. I knew it was a special moment that they would cherish forever.
If you are wondering about the pie, Jill has never baked anything for Mike. Apparently Mike likes pie, and Jill decided that she would give it shot and bake her first pie to give to him on their wedding day. I love his reaction after the first bite! He says ‘It’s Good!’ really surprised… but since I cut that audio out, you might think he is saying ‘Holy SH#T!!!’ haha! That is what it looks like to me at least!
I hope you enjoy this film. I had a lot of fun shooting it and putting it all together.
