Mariana and Chad’s reception had the elements a filmmaker wants at their wedding. Great lights, high energy, and non-stop music. This is a small excerpt from their full 25 minute film. This chapter is called “Dance Set”. Special thanks to local NY guest filmmaker and good friend Jon Armendariz for helping us out on this wedding.

Marisa, the bride, had no idea what the guys were up to at the Garden City Hotel while they got dressed. Jesse, the groom pointed out to Pennylane filmmaker RJ that the guys were planning on doing the Harlem Shake after some inspiration from LeBron James and the Miami Heat. So why wouldn’t we open up with that?
Back at the bridal suite at Pine Hollow Country Club, Marisa and the girls were finishing up their hair and makeup in anticipation for the first look. The circular stairs at the venue allowed us to capture a great moment when Marisa and Jesse saw each other for the first time. We had the pleasure of working with one of the best photographers around, Susan Stripling, who is always an inspiration to Pennylane (plus she’s really really funny.)
Around 6:30pm, Stripling had helped setup the perfect positioning of the ketubah signing in a crowded room. The lighting was stunning as it peaked through the window behind Marisa and Jesse and by 7pm, the processional had started. The ceremony decor was beautiful and Chuppah was finally ready after watching the crew build it for hours and hours. As the beautiful bride walked down the aisle to her beloved, her smile radiated throughout the room. She giggled as she circled her groom and the bridesmaids giggled back.
One the the coolest parts of the ceremony was listening to Marisa and Jesse read, in their own words, how they feel about each other and Rabbi who flew in from out-of-state was actually the cousin of the groom so this was very special.

Wedding at Tribeca Rooftop in New York. Christin and Adam’s entire day took place at Tribeca Rooftop in Manhattan. We finally got to work along side talented NY wedding photographer Danny Weiss and he was great. We had a very trendy creative session on the cobble stone streets of New York City right outside the venue. Earlier in the day, the bridesmaids encountered a 2 celebrity singers and even asked them to join the wedding.
After the dress was on, Christin was ready to rock and roll for her first look. The moment was amazing and emotional as hoped and even more emotions followed as we experienced their beautiful ceremony held in the main loft area of the venue. The cocktail hour took place on the roof right about sunset and wow, how beautiful this place is especially at magic hour. I couldn’t resist stealing the bride and groom for a perfect moment as the sun was setting during their cocktail hour (as you will see on the last hot of the highlight reel below). The reception was a non-stop party atmosphere that was rocked by the Hank Lane Band. They will be getting a 20-25 minute full feature film in the future which is not a wedding video at all, its a cinematic and emotional experience, but for now, sit back and enjoy this short wedding highlight reel from Pennylane Productions.
