Adam & Chrisia — Like puzzle pieces, we fit together perfectly

Chrisia Wedding Gift

There were two impor­tant ele­ments we knew we want­ed to focus on going into Adam and Chrisia’s big day: the fact that they have been togeth­er for nine years (!) since the day Adam worked up the nerves to ask her to their senior prom, and the fact that they love to play board games togeth­er. When they invit­ed us over for a cof­fee at their home, we dis­cov­ered yet anoth­er ele­ment we want­ed to cap­ture. Look­ing around at all the love­ly paint­ings in their house, Adam and Chrisia not only told us that Chrisia’s dad, Rober­to, was a painter, but that he was work­ing on a piece for their wed­ding day.

If we could work all these dif­fer­ent ideas into the final prod­uct, we knew we would be able to make the per­fect wed­ding film for Adam and Chrisia. The board games was the first piece of the puz­zle to come togeth­er. We sug­gest­ed to them that after shar­ing their first look, they play a round of one of their many board games. They liked the idea and picked Scrab­ble (dou­ble win :D). As for the prom and paint­ings aspects of the film, we planned and planned on dif­fer­ent shots that would help tell these sto­ries and went into their day with an inkling that some­one would bring either top­ic up and we’d be able to cap­ture the con­ver­sa­tion.

If you had told us we would have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to com­bine these sto­ry­lines visu­al­ly and emo­tion­al­ly as we did in their wed­ding film, we wouldn’t have believed you. But when Chrisia’s par­ents took to the podi­um for their speech, Rober­to not only told the sto­ry of Adam and Chrisia’s first date on their prom night, but he told it through the per­spec­tive of a father, send­ing his daugh­ter off on her first date, and now giv­ing her away on her wed­ding day. It was beau­ti­ful, emo­tion­al, and also the per­fect way to play up on the impor­tance of the paint­ing Rober­to had made for Adam and Chrisia.

As always, we have prob­a­bly got­ten too excit­ed and talked up a storm. Watch their wed­ding film below and let us know your thoughts!
