First off, we need to say a huge thank you to OMG Events for introducing us to this couple in the first place! None of this could’ve happened without them 🙂 Also, did you notice the decor?? The OMG team put their blood, sweat, and tears into this event and every other set up they do, and always produce the vision that their couples are looking for! I can still remember the bride’s face when she first walked into the reception space all done up – she was absolutely blown away. Samantha will be the first to admit that she’s rarely speechless, but I think this ‘reveal’ made her just that! I think the wings on her stage made her the most overwhelmed LOL!
Secondly, we need to mention the entertainment! Honestly, guests should’ve had to pay for tickets to come to this event. From the ballerinas, to the skater (yes, you heard me right, a skater!), to the snake charmer (Sean, you are so brave! Samantha’s reaction when the snake charmer placed the snake on Sean’s shoulders was PRICELESS), there were endless showstopping performances for everyone to enjoy. Did we mention that there were foot massage therapists in the evening too? Definitely something very unique and an idea outside the box that all the guests were surprised about and appreciated a lot! Us girls especially with our heels! Oh the price of beauty!
At first glance, Samantha and Sean are quite opposites in their personalities. Samantha is the more outgoing, bubbly and extroverted personality, whereas Sean is the more quiet, calm and reserved one. But Sean definitely surprised us when he made his speech! He absolutely shone up there and showed us his wicked sense of humour! He made us laugh so hard behind our cameras, and gave us an insight into how he certainly is on a day-to-day basis with Samantha! We knew we were going to have to incorporate a lot of the speech into the video, and we’re glad it worked out the way it did!
The wedding was held at Paradise Banquet Hall and was coordinated beautifully by Jessica Lisi from Jessica Lisi Events. We worked with her previously when we filmed Rodney + Heidi’s wedding, and it was just as seamless then as it was now. We also filmed quite a few other weddings in the past at Paradise, such as Mustafa + Sarah’s wedding. Great venue with lots of spaces to offer. With the rain that day, we were only able to get a few shots outside (props to the couple for braving the weather!), but luckily we got the shots we needed of the action inside Paradise.
We had such a great time filming Samantha and Sean’s big day, and are so happy they chose us to capture all the memories! Thank you guys so much for letting us be a part of it all!
Nothing but love,
Joanie and Henry x
