Diane & Blake: NYC Highlight Movie

The time has come to present my very last wedding video. And I couldn't have asked for a more fabulous wedding to end on. Diane and Blake's summer wedding was held at the famous Rainbow Room atop the Rockefeller Center in New York City. They flew me up to film their wedding shooting alongside my photographer friend, Jason Groupp.

Diane and Blake have such a unique love story, the kind you would expect in a movie with NYC and Central Park as the supporting character. A few years ago, Blake had just moved to the city and needed a running buddy, so a mutual friend introduced him to Diane. They have both individually been long time marathon runners and have many awards from Ironman competitions, so it was only natural that their paths would cross and their hearts would fall in love with each passing mile.

They had a fun filled wedding weekend centered around Central Park, first with the Rehearsal Dinner at my favorite NYC restaurant Tavern on the Green. Then, Saturday morning before the wedding, they hosted a Family Fun Run inviting family and guests of the wedding to run a few miles with them that morning. You know a bride is a serious runner when even on her wedding day, she finds time to squeeze in a jog.

Later, Diane and Blake exchanged vows at the Rainbow Room and Jason and I took them out in the streets to get those classic NYC shots with taxis in the background swirling by. They even had their very first look at each other as bride and groom on Top of the Rock on the roof of the Rockefeller Center building overlooking the entire city and the Empire State building where Blake first told Diane that he loved her. And as a special wedding surprise, one of their friends rented ad space in the middle of Times Square with a congratulations ad flickering all weekend amongst the rest of the flashing lights.

Hollywood couldn't have written a script any better.

Here is their extended highlight movie. Enjoy!

I love the voice over of their vows, girl that was edited perfectly! Having done TV Production in HS I know what kind of work and effort is is to get those things perfect. Great job!
