The Johnsons

My niece, Melanie, married her high school sweetheart, Greg, on August 15, 2009. The ceremony at The Immacula in San Diego, united them spiritually. The bridal party then made stops throughout San Diego for shots with the photographers and videographers. Later, the reception was celebrated at the Island Club at NAS North Island in Coronado.

The talented videographers at Starcross'd Creative prepared a same-day edit of the clips and photos taken during the wedding day to show family and friends later that day. The rings featured are their actual wedding rings and the initial male voice was Fr. Ramos during the wedding ceremony. It was amazing ... the videographers were busily cutting and piecing together the photos and footage during the reception to show after our meal.

A full version will be ready next month (with a link here). (I just noticed the thumbail of Melanie below. Can you believe J.Lo's makeup artists handled the makeup of the bridal party. Naku!) In the meantime, here's the first edit shown during the wedding reception:
