It’s Japanese legend that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted a wish. Be it long life, healing, or success. In regards to weddings, it is said that the folder (or folders in this case) is wishing 1,000 years of happiness and prosperity to the couple. Needless to say, I’m always impressed and taken aback by the site of the paper cranes as I just imagine of how much time was spent as a labor of love folding all those birds.
Brandi and Reid were fantastic to work with. Knowing them and how gracious they are, it’s no surprise that they had a quite a number of people show up in support of their union, around 300+ at their reception! I wish I had more time to fit all the amazing things that happened during the reception in the same day edit, such as Reid’s surprise performance to Brandi with a song that brought the house down as well as the words of wisdom from their friend Jen who was a great officiant :). Her UH football to a wedding analogy was very well received, lol. To Brandi and Reid, from the team and myself, thank you for your hospitality throughout the day and for choosing us for your Hawaii Wedding Cinematography needs :). This was also another collaboration with James Pizarro from my sister studio on the east coast, redbicyclemedia.com. Always a pleasure having you.
Without further delay, here’s their same day edit that we displayed for them at their reception. ENJOY!
