A Date and a Dream Team - the wedding edition

Hola bloggies:

Please excuse my lack of posting. I've been living in a bit of an all encompassing work mode as of late. I think of it as my first degree murder cave. I have a rather large case going on at the moment and until we wrap (hopefully in a week) I won't be blogging much. But that means when I come back I'll have a ton to share with you.

So please bare with me! :o)

I did however make a special exception to emerge from my cave to share some AWESOME news with you - we have a Wedding Date!!!!!!!!!!

We will be getting married November 10, 2010 in Cabo, Mexico

Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!! The contracts have been signed and everything is good to go. We're both super excited. Since March I've been engaged but it's only now that it feels like this is actually going to happen. Awesome.

The picking of a date also means that I can introduce you to some of the vendors that will officially make-up my fabulous wedding dream team! Shall we?

Chris+Lynn - Photography

The Fiance and I would like to present our official wedding photographers. The absolutely fabulous Chris+Lynn (based out of Vancouver but available for worldwide travel):

It's no word of an exaggeration to say that I have been in LOVE with their work forever! I first came across their blog years ago and have been following their posts ever since.

We love them in part due to their ability to capture the beauty of the surroundings of the wedding location. This is particularly important for a destination wedding! And I have no doubt that they'll be able to show the beauty of Baja - especially since they're building their dream home a couple of hours from our wedding venue!

They have been my DREAM photographers for as long as I can remember!!!!

Honestly we're thrilled to bits that they're a part of our team! :o)

Joe Simon Productions - Cinematography

I'm not going to lie. This was a really difficult decision to make. I love Joe's work but I also loved Still Motion's. The fiance and I went back and forth on this decision but in the end we chose the team that most suited our style, relative youth, aesthetic, and budget. Truth be told we're beside ourselves with our choice!!!!

Joe Simon Productions is based out of Texas (also available for worldwide travel) and is an amazing award winning cinematographer who shoots both in Super 8 and HD. Joe will be shooting our wedding in HD and out of the whole deal we'll get a trailer, a highlights film, and a feature film. Brilliant bang for our buck to be honest!

NOTE: It appears you'll have to click the hyperlink under the vimeo icon to reach the videos. A lot of cinematographers have begun to disable embedding after a rash of incidents were people "stole" other's worked and claimed it as their own. Sorry!

Want to see his AMAZING work? Here is a trailer from a recent destination wedding he shot in the Cayman Islands:

Incredible, eh? Joe is also a master at capturing the scenic surroundings of destination weddings. A definite must in our cinematographer of choice!

Want to see some more of his brilliant work? This is a sample of a wedding highlight he did for a young couple that were married in Texas. A tear-jerker for sure:

Obviously Joe Simon is ridiculously talent but his aesthetic and sense of style was perfect for us. His approach is young, fun, and yet classic. I have no doubt I will end up with some amazing work and I can't wait to share it all with you!!!!!!!!

So what do you think peeps? Not bad so far! :o) I'll have more to share with you as we progress but I wanted to share the vendors we have definitely secured.

See you next time bloggies - hopefully sooner rather than later!!!

Congrats on picking your date & getting some things set for the big day. But man, weddings seem like way too much work. I don't think I could go as all out as you.
