“Reid and Jeff were amazing! He arrived early to our hotel on our wedding day and went right to work among all the chaos. Our entire wedding day-photos-ceremony-first look- ect was all planned outside. Of course, there was rain, hail, power outages, and everything else you could imagine. Reid and his crew went along with all the changes and adapted in every situation! Reid went over the top in every aspect, and even let me hide under his umbrella when I was in my wedding dress in the pouring rain. I would recommend Best Made Videos for any occasion!”

Elizabeth F. — June 23, 2016


What an amazing couple, what an amazing wedding, what an amazing video!  Starting off the day with an almost certain forecast of rain, the wedding party, photographer and myself knew we were in for an interesting ride.  After blindfolding the groom in preparation for the first look, we drove around in the back of a limo for an hour/hour and a half waiting for the rain to clear.  The rain subsided for a few moments, allowing us to snap a couple photos of the bride and groom before arriving to Chambers Bay.

Throughout the bridal party photos, the storm off the shore inched closer and closer, threatening the planned outdoor ceremony overlooking the beautiful golf course below. As guests began to arrive, the cold wind and intermittent rain pushed everyone inside the golf shop or the nearby tented reception area.  It looked as though the rain/wind/hail was going to prevail.  Everyone stood around resigned to the fact that the outdoor ceremony would not take place as planned.  Not wanting to disappoint the bride, the photographer and myself held out hope and anxiously waited for any small break in the torrential downpour outside.

When it finally looked as though all hope was lost….the wind slowed, the rain stopped, and we hurriedly got the guests out of hiding while the workers at the venue frantically began wiping the rain off the ceremony chairs.  The sun broke through the clouds as the bride walked down the aisle and less than ten minutes later Elizabeth and Bronson were declared husband and wife in front of some of their closest family and friends.

What followed were some beautiful images, a wonderful couple kissing and laughing in front of a bright blue sky.  As the couple strolled down the path to their reception laughing and holding hands, I knew we had created something special, and a memory to last a lifetime.  I count myself lucky that I was there to experience it and document it every step of the way!
