Krista & David – For like ever

Krista David Burlington Wedding Video

Despite of what you’ll see in this wed­ding film, David doesn’t play the pi­ano. Actually, David’s not even a mu­si­cian. But David loves Krista very much, and when he let us in on the big sur­prise he was plan­ning for their big day, we knew it would be mag­i­cal.

Krista con­tacted us al­most a year ago to cap­ture her June 1st fes­tiv­i­ties. Right off the bat, she told us it would be a very per­sonal, very emo­tional, and very teary day – need­less to say, we were in­trigued. Over the next few months, we e-mailed back and forth about her and David’s plans for their day, how they met, what they like to do to­gether, and more of­ten than not, wed­ding stuff (Krista her­self is an infinitely-talented wed­ding plan­ner and owner of KJ & Co.). She’s also been ac­tively blog­ging about the jour­ney lead­ing up to her wed­ding day over at Wedding Obsession, don­ning the #for­li­keever hash­tag for her and David along the way.

Being the busy lady that she is, we didn’t have a face-to-face meet­ing with Krista un­til ear­lier in the spring (de­spite of the fact that we live 5 min­utes away from each other). But when we fi­nally sat down for a cof­fee, she told us about a hockey game that David and the grooms­men were plan­ning a cou­ple of days be­fore the wed­ding. We knew David loved hockey, but more im­por­tantly, we re­called an e-mail in which Krista said that David works hard and plays hard – he’s very ac­tive and in­volved with sports, while she’s more laid back. We thought the hockey game would be the per­fect way to demon­strate this el­e­ment of their dy­namic, and asked to tag along.

A few weeks af­ter that meet­ing, David shot us over an e-mail to fill us in on his big sur­prise. His friend had been teach­ing him how to play the Beatles’ “All you need is love” on the pi­ano, and he would be per­form­ing it for Krista at their re­cep­tion. We were beam­ing with ex­cite­ment.

By the time their wed­ding day ar­rived, Krista and David had shared so much with us that we knew ex­actly how we wanted to struc­ture their film and what shots would tell their story best (we’re pretty metic­u­lous plan­ners). And while we could write and write about these two, we’ll just let you watch their wed­ding film and bask in the beauty of their spe­cial day!

(And if you’re think­ing to your­self, “I know them from some­where!”, that’s be­cause they starred in a lit­tle com­mer­cial piece we put to­gether for Schick!)
