For our third visit to the Bay Area this summer, we had the honor of capturing the wedding of Stephanie & Ulysses. I met them back in April and instantly knew they were a fun couple. They described how their reception would start off with them entering the room to the song “Flashing Lights” by Kanye West and how their entourage would be taking photos like paparazzi. I already knew I was going to have a great time at this wedding.
Ulysses is a fan of all things Batman so they chose black and yellow for their colors (a tribute to the original Batman logo). Everything was black and yellow, from the bride’s garter to the groom’s cap… even the M&M’s candy giveaways! In true hip-hop fashion, the couple also had matching Nike Air Force Ones! How cool is that?!! To top it off, their first dance was one of the funnest first dances I’ve seen… it had everything from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to the head-banger from “A Night At The Roxbury” (think of “Evolution Of Dance” from YouTube). I had my cousin A.J. (from Xylophone Films) join me on this trip and we had the best time. A big thanks to Stephanie & Ulysses and their families for making us feel right at home. Enjoy watching their Same Day Edit video!
What’s a Bay Area blog entry without me talking about food? Thanks, Arleen and David for treating me to Crustacean for Roasted Crab and Garlic Noodles! Thanks, Stephanie, for the Senorita bread. And thanks, AJ, for taking me to the Colma Cafe at Lucky Chances Casino… the Tosilog (pork tosino, fried rice, and eggs) was the best. I’m stuffed to the rafters.
