Benny & Joanna are very madly in love. Their love story started back in 2002 on Valentine’s Day when they were just 14 years old! For 15 years, they dated and spent precious moments together until on Joanna’s 30th birthday, surrounded by both families, Benny finally popped the question! Of course Joanna said YES and they started planning a wedding.

The couple wanted to choose a cathedral because they wanted to exchange their vows before God in an elegant and timeless setting. Joanna knew that a cathedral wedding would give the perfect romantic feel for their wedding ceremony with its’ high ceilings, echoing walls and classic artwork. This challenged Benny, so he set out to find the greatest cathedral in Sacramento and when he found the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, he knew their wedding guests would be just as awed with the magnificent building. When I entered the building on their wedding day, I was taken back by the grandness of it all and I knew I needed to capture that into our wedding film. I was so excited to finally film in this incredible sanctuary and I got right to work, making sure to get the finest details of their big day.

Our day began with filming the wedding details as the couple was getting ready at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. We wanted to include all the tiniest details that the couple incorporated on their big day. The bride’s dress really blew me away because it fit so perfectly with the theme of the wedding. (I know, the bride always plans that out perfectly.) Her off-white Justin Alexander designer wedding dress added a majestic touch to the shots in the cathedral.

After capturing those small details, we walked over with the bridal party to the cathedral for the wedding ceremony, where the couple exchanged vows, participated in a few religious traditions, and shared their first kiss as a husband and wife. We spent some time afterward, right across the street at the California State Capitol Park for a wedding photo shoot with the bride and groom. The fun-filled reception then followed back at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento hotel, with the couple making their Grand Entrance (which involved some serious dance moves by the groom) and danced their first dance. The special dances with the bride’s dad and the groom’s mom were some of the most emotional dances I’ve ever filmed. You can feel that they were close to each other and this day left a positive mark on their hearts. The groom finished off the formal program with a very emotional speech to his family, friends, but most importantly, HIS WIFE. He even slipped in a few more romantic promises last-minute. I’m positive they will have a happy and a beautiful life.

The rest of the night, the quests enjoyed drinks, dancings and having a lot of fun.

I wanted this wedding film to start with one of the most important aspect to the bride and groom — the cathedral. I loved the priest chanting the blessing during the ceremony and I believe it fits so perfectly as the beginnings to their wedding story. Additionally, I loved the echo throughout the cathedral whenever someone spoke, so I wanted to use the blessing in the begging without any music as well. What do you think? Do you think it carried the mood of the wedding in their film?
