“Reid was an absolute pleasure to work with. Prior to the wedding he was accessible and more than happy to work with us as we ironed out details for the wedding. During our wedding Reid worked closely with our Photographer coming up with creative and unique photos and video footage. Because of this, Reid was able to produce a wedding video that not only do we love and cherish but our family and friends have commented on how much they love it as well and brings tears to their eyes every time they watch it. Reid even took time to help us make sure that we were able to embed the live stream of our wedding onto our wedding website so that our family and friends who live in different states and another country could watch and still be a part of our very special day. Reid is a courteous professional who is extremely talented. We can’t recommend Reid enough if you are looking for a videographer who will be able to capture your special day.”

What a special wedding day for Alex and Erin.  Located directly on South Lake Union, The College Club of Seattle (a rowing club) is a truly remarkable spot to hold a wedding ceremony!

I did by best to tie in some of the nautical and boating aspects of the venue throughout the video, starting with the details at the beginning.  I still love the shot of Erin’s dress hanging in the boat storage room downstairs as well as her garter belt dangling from one of the oars nearby.

A beautiful sunny Labor Day weekend (not always a given in Seattle!) as well as a wonderful group of vendors made this a wedding for the memory books!  Check out their highlight video above to see all the love and joy from their wedding day for yourself!

Apigo Wedding on 8/27/16 at The Des Moines Yacht Club in Des Moines, Wa

“We were so happy with our trailer and full video that Reid made for us. Having a videographer was really important for me for our wedding, but in looking around, it seemed the cost for what you were provided was just not feasible. Until I saw Reid’s site. He goes above and beyond for his couples and his turn around is SO FAST! We loved watching our trailer on our honeymoon, and saved our full length film until we got back so that we could watch it with family and friends. I loved every minute of watching it, and getting to see moments of the day that I never saw on the actual day. It was so special, and I would recommend any couple to Best Made Videos!”

Kimberly and Henry’s wedding last August at the Des Moines Yacht Club was laugh-filled and dripping with all sorts of love and devotion.  Kimberly had a vision for her wedding day, and from the start that included videography.  Incorporating in some aerial drone video work of both the beautiful scenic views of the venue as well as shots of the wedding party and couple add some fun and creative flair to this wedding video.

A beautiful first dance as well as a gorgeous sunset photo session before closing out the night really make this a wedding video to remember.  I’m so glad that Kim and Henry chose us to be a part of their wedding day and I hope they are able to enjoy their wedding video for years and years to come.  Enjoy!

Alford “Surprise” Wedding on 11/27/16 at Mama Stortini’s in Puyallup, Wa

“When Ron and I planned a last minute surprise wedding Reid was awesome to work with. He let him know upfront that we had a unique situation with our surprise wedding and a very sick child with cancer.. We wanted to make sure whatever video we got that it not only mirrored the love we felt, but offered a lot sentiment to both our children and all others who would see it. Reid went above and beyond with editing and giving us all the clips we wanted, He even did last minute edits upon request. The video turned out amazing and we will cherish it forever. It will give our young kids a forever memory. It also gave many of our friends a family a view of our wedding, which was awesome since we had a very small wedding party. Our 3 kiddos have already asked to watch it several times. Reid did a fabulous job at being sensitive to our needs and also giving us everything thing we asked for. The surprise wedding when off without a hitch and we have had the coolest comments about the video. Many people have adored it. Thank you Reid!”

Ron and Desiree’s surprise wedding was one of the most emotion-filled wedding days I have ever had the opportunity to take part in.  Planning their wedding in under 4 weeks all the while having a child in the hospital is no easy feat.  Ron and Des made it happen and the result is something truly extraordinary.  Read about the whole experience in Desiree’s own words.  Their love, just like their wedding day is truly out of this world!

“How to Plan a Wedding in 4 Weeks: Just Make it a Surprise!

October 16, 2016, I walked into a restaurant and found my entire family and closest friends waiting for me. I turned to Ron and before I knew it he was down on one knee asking me to be his wife.

Overjoyed with excitement, as the evening ended, Ron and I went back to his house and planned our “surprise wedding.” For Ron and I, we did not have any desire to have a large wedding, we also knew without a doubt we were supposed to be married. The actual “wedding” wasn’t that important to us. What was important was being married, getting our family under one roof, and starting our life together while honoring God, each other, our children, and our family.

Our story is unique for several reason — As our relationship developed we knew Ron would fulfill the role as “Daddy” for my 5 year old daughter, Hartley. On the other hand one of Ron’s twin son’s, Vanny, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia, and for us it made more sense than ever to get our family together, united under one roof to create more stability for one another and our children.

For us, there was no reason to wait! Our other option was just to run down to the court house immediately! And we did discuss that several times.

The surprise wedding became such a cool options for us because it gave us a unique way to plan a small wedding, in a short time (4 weeks), while still making it incredibly memorable and honoring to our family, friends, and most importantly, our children. We also felt like nothing in our relationship was “standard.” Every part of it developed it such awe inspiring way, thus getting our marriage started differently — just made sense.”
