A Boy Catching Frogs In The Woods
There were so many things we fell in love with at Zach and Lindsay’s wooded wedding weekend at Evergreen Lodge in Yosemite. First, you can’t beat the location: cozy cabins in the middle of the forest and (in case that isn’t beautiful enough) throw in the most picturesque meadow EVER. Then there were the super cool and super unique groomsmen’s boutineers which were a variety of dinosaurs, bears, and other fun green creatures, only to be upstaged by Lindsay’s dress… elegant, timeless, and perfect. Golden deer cake toppers, amazing personalized stationary, the list goes on and on! But perhaps our most favorite moment of the day was Zach, standing at the end of the isle, waiting for his soon-to-be wife. At first we were slightly concerned that he would not look up as Lindsay started across the meadow. She came closer and closer and he continued to avert his eyes. Then suddenly, as she reached the back of the isle, …it happened. We hope this film captures the magic of that moment and the story of their day.
Behind the Scenes: In order to film a time lapse of the sunset and stars over Half Dome and Yosemite Valley we hiked to the top of nearby Sentinel Dome (during the day). It was an amazing vantage point and after the stars came out it was time to head back down the trail. But a small problem filming in Yosemite at night: the pitch black forest and “every tree is a bear” syndrome. Although we may not recommend this adventure to every filmmaker the outcome was certainly worth the peril and thankfully we made it back in one piece.
From the bride: “We just watched the video and are absolutely in love! I am completely blown away! Thank you so so so much! It was 20 gazillion times better than I ever expected and I can’t wait to share it with everyone! I can’t believe all the gorgeous sun-soaked shots you got and the video just affirms my decision to get married in Yosemite! We were definitely the luckiest couple ever to have you both, Ben and DJ Quantum as our dream team! Thank you again times 50 gazillion!" -Lindsey + Zach
