Some brides and grooms know how to make an entrance, but super-cute L.A. couple Joya and Emre said forget that. We're going to make a full-length music video. On the day of. And get all of our guests involved. Seriously --- even the officiant shows up in a cameo around 0:55. Check it out.
Here's a little backstory: The duo wanted to make a funny video that they could play in lieu of the traditional reception slideshow. But they worried that it would be too time-consuming, too expensive, and require too much acting. So they sat down with videographer David Robin and decided to take a chance on shooting a music video during their actual celebration at Terranea Resort. "We thought it would be cool to have a side project that everyone could participate in," says Joya, "and we hoped our guests would look back on it as a special shared memory."
Friends and family were alerted that they'd be video extras, and when the big day arrived, everyone brought their A game. "Every single person (including Joya's mom) was rocking out!" says Emre. "At the end of the second take, David's face was priceless, 'We nailed it!' he said."
When all was said and done, Joya and Emre --- with the help of planner Amber Gustafson --- pulled off a beautiful wedding (see more pics here), and walked away with an awesome video to remember it all by. What do you think?
