Yolanda & Philip's Dream Wedding

Yolanda & Philip-Cinematic Highlight from Russell John Films on Vimeo.

Surrounded by close family and friends, Yolanda and Philip said "I do" on September 3, 2016 at the Sofitel Los Angeles Hotel. Looking through the lens, we could feel just how genuine their love is.

The Creative Proposal - Philip proposed to Yolanda while they were wine tasting in Napa. After convincing Yolanda to bring her iPad to dinner, Philip pretended to take photographs with it. When he handed the iPad back to Yolanda, there was a video playing. Yolanda started to cry when she realized that, in the video, Philip had recreated all their first dates. By the end of the video Philip was down on one knee and the rest is history!

No peaking before the big reveal!

...And It was well worth the wait! Tears of joy fill the room as the bride and groom see each other for the first time. We were able to capture the entire moment on camera.

The first look was followed by a special tea ceremony.

Here comes the bride.

"The one thing missing in my life was you," - Philip

 "I love you and it is not a choice or decision. It is a feeling I can't even begin to explain, but yet I've never been more sure about." - Yolanda

You may kiss the bride!

Yolanda and Philip danced the night away with family and friends. We have to say, they had one of the top 3 best dance circles we've seen! Music provided by DJ Michael Basic.
