Today’s featured wedding video comes to us from Aperina Studios, based in San Francisco, California! Here’s the Aperina Studios team to tell us more:

Located in California’s finest wine country, Napa Valley, Brix was a perfect location for Dan & Pamela’s Wedding. The beautiful couple danced away in the sunset with gorgeous vineyards and gardens in the background. We loved filming the nature and spectacular views of the Mayacamas mountains. The heat was there to challenge us, but I love how we pulled of an amazing story of this couple. As a Napa Valley wedding videographer, we love to tell stories in these enchanted valleys.

On a technical side. We used 5 cameras (Canon 5D MK III DSLRs) and many “L series” lenses. Audio wise, we had the groom and officiant mic’ed up for the ceremony using mini lavs, additionally pulling a feed off of the mixer (for backup). For reception, we simplified the audio, but had a few duplicate audio recorders running from the mixer. We used a Jib to give us those cinematic shots that are hard to get with regular tripods or monopods.

Looking over the shots, we did an amazing job “harmonizing” shots and making sure they work together. We usually plan our camera layout prior to the ceremony and reception to give us the shots I want. More importantly, so we can work effectively and to get the best coverage possible. With experience, we are able to plan our layout within minutes, but each wedding is a challenge.

Our opening aerial shots, I do for fun. I love flying my personal camera in the air to get an amazing view while I’m at a beautiful location. We edit and color-correct/grade in FCPX (I love Final Cut) using built in color correction and a few plugins. Over the years I understood a basic principle I go by: with amazing footage, you can make an amazing film! So we do just that. Enjoy this short film!

Congratulations Dan & Pamela, and thank you to Aperina Studio for sharing! For more information about Aperina Studio, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.

Fun and Elegant Vineyard Wedding in Connecticut (3)

This gorgeous vineyard wedding comes to us from the videography team at NST Pictures, based in New York, NY! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

We were living in South Eastern Connecticut at the time and we were surrounded by quite a few Vineyards. We wanted to be outdoors, using nature as our backdrop and a tented reception was how we both envisioned the night. I was far from the bride that dreamt of a ballroom/black-tie situation. (Not that there is anything wrong with that!)

We just love the laid-back vibe and the rustic details in today’s featured wedding video, brought to us by Marry Me Movies! Here’s more about the couple and their big day from Marry Me Movies:

Alix and Mike wanted a relaxed, informal, fun gathering for their wedding, which is why they settled on a friend’s beautiful, sprawling property in Kangaroo Valley. We love how the couple used wood from the property to make the rustic wedding arch. And as wedding cinematographers, we certainly didn’t complain about the stunning Kangaroo Valley scenery!

We just love the indie style and laid back vibe of today’s real wedding brought to us by Nikk Nguyen Photo, based in Austin, TX! Here’s Nikk to tell us more:

The wedding was set in the heart of downtown, it wasn’t what you would expect from that area though. It was secluded in a wonderful residential looking venue with big trees and old school vibes. All the guest there that wasn’t family was part of the service industry, an abundance of tattoos and smiles. The whole wedding went smooth from the reception, first look, till the ceremony and after.
