Maria ♥ Mario ... SDE

When we are doing a same day edit, the day goes by very quickly. Today was no exception, despite filming over 16 hours. This was one of those special weddings where we feel totally included and part of the family right from the beginning. Between all the many many moments and locations we covered today, Maria & Mario did everything in their power to make sure we felt welcome and were having fun just as much as their bridal party. We also appreciated having so much input from the bridesmaids and groomsmen, not least the impromptu mandolin dance in the middle of the photo shoot.

The day was absolutely packed with eye candy, photo locations and "stopovers" at various stores for refreshments. Insanity on the limobus... Kudos for the stop at Fairmont Pacific Rim, where the partying continued while Maria had her hair done. There was just enough time to squeeze in a brief photo session.

Taking the photos was the amazing Dave Custodio. He is a busy man and does not need my plug here, but it's been great working with Dave and Danny over the years. So much fun running around being irresponsible and getting endless great shots with these two. They are absolute pros.

Assisi, Fairmont, Law Courts; all great venues, but the best was the one built by Mario Cirillo: the amazing home he made for himself and Maria. Here's hoping we can make that two day party a reality heh heh.
