Jordan + Juan Wedding Highlights || Westin Lake Las Vegas || {Las Vegas Wedding Videographers}

Jordan and Juan had a beautiful wedding at the scenic Westin Lake Las Vegas! Their love story is truly inspiring spreading across countries and around the globe. The extra gorgeous Jordan, daughter of a preacher met Juan overseas several years ago. They maintained a long distance relationship defying all the odds and obstacles, and are together here in the United States.

At first, they were not sire if they wanted a Las Vegas wedding videographer, as they felt like they would be uncomfortable in front of the camera. We were able convince them otherwise and not only made them feel comfortable on their wedding day, but it seem like they became naturals in front of the camera. Their wedding ceremony was at the beautiful Andalusians Garden surrounded by water with their friends and family. This is also where they had their emotional first look as Juan was floored by the beauty of his soon-to-be wife. After the ceremony they had some much needed alone time as we captured beautiful romantics and epic footage on the bridge and golf course.

Their reception was beautifully decorated inside the always amazing Baraka Room at Westin Lake Las Vegas. Although we have filmed so many weddings at this location, it never feels repetitive. Each couple is always different and bring their own unique idea and preference to their wedding day, which is what always keep us on our toes and excited. Jordan and Juan’s were no different as the uniqueness of their taste and relationships with friends and family shined through on their special day. With capturing all of these moments it shined though on their highlight reel as well.

It was a pleasure filming this beautiful event and thank you Jordan and Juan for choosing Lighten Films for your Las Vegas wedding videographers.

Krystina + Ryan \\ Red Rock Country Club{Las Vegas wedding Videographers}

I always love hearing different points of view on how couples met or what their first impressions of one another were. Ryan & Kystina expressed their points of view on how they met on their love story site Ryan + Krystina.

– Her point of view –
On the First Friday of August in Chinatown, Krystina walked passed a door and casually looked in to see  a handsome guy. She asked her friend, “WHO is that?!” and her friend replied, “Oh, that’s Ryan.” Krystina wanted to know why she didn’t know Ryan. That night Ryan and Krystina sat next to each other at dinner. From that day on we were inseparable. We fell in love. And we can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.
– His point of view –
Ryan and his roommates decided to see the sights in Chinatown on First Friday. While at dinner Ryan looked to the doorway as Krystina walked by and wondered who that was. After they locked eyes, Krystina came back to the doorway for a quick second glance. As Krystina walked away, her friend trailed her, a friend who was fortunately yet randomly mutual. Ryan was super excited and knew that they would eventually sit down at Ryan’s table. Krystina sat down next to Ryan and asked to use his straw. Ryan knew from there that Krystina was special and that there was going to be an amazing future ahead of them.

After looking at several Las Vegas wedding videographers, they decided to go with Lighten Films to document their elegant, once in a lifetime event. They had a luxurious wedding at Red Rock Country Club, and a day filled with fun and visual eye candy. From renting exotic cars and driving around town to having shots taken at Red Rock Canyon it was a day to remember.

Ryan, who is in the military had a Saber arch at the end of the ceremony and the team of Lighten Films salutes you and thank you for your service. It was a pleasure filming their wedding! After receiving their reel, I got this amazing message from the couple.

“TERRENCE!!! ITS AMAZING!!!!! you depicted the day just as Ryan and I remember it! thank you SO SO SO much! I’ve watched it no less than 15 times today! Everyone who has watched has told me they cried and got goose bumps! Seriously amazing job.” – Krystina Bushnell and Ryan Bushnell

Ashley + Derek \\ Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort {Las Vegas Wedding Videographer}

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away I worked at Costco for almost ten years. Known for being one of the fastest (the fastest in my mind) cashiers there and my smile, I was a customer favorite. 🙂 I worked with Ashley for a few years there, before I left my full-time job to be a full-time business owner. Ashley was always a fan of Lighten Films and my wife’s company We Are A Story (formerly Vitamin C Photo). So when Ashley got engaged to Derek, she had her mind already made up and did not need to look at any other Las Vegas wedding videographers.

Ashley and Derek are such a great pair, made of two caring and loving individuals. Their love towards each other is beautiful to witness, and it was an absolute pleasure to capture their moment.

They married and celebrated at the scenic Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. Along with working with the talented We Are A Story photographers, we also had the pleasure of working with the girls from Makeup in the 702. It was a ceremony not to forget, because of the beautiful personal vows they shared with one another. It was an honor filming your special day and being able to watch them grow as a family. Thank you Ashley and Derek!

Genesis + Oliver \\ Highlight Reel from Lighten Films – 702.266.6226 on Vimeo.

Genesis and Oliver is such an amazing couple, that put God first in their relationship. They first me at a church bowling event function back in their small home town in Indiana as Julie(genesis’ sister introduced the two. Oliver almost blew it with a bad first impression, but he quickly made up for it. They hung out with groups of church friends outside of church for months before dating alone, they went on their first official after being an item for 100 days. They had a long distance relationship up until their wedding. He waited two years until after Genesis finished school to propose to her. Here is the link to their Love Story to get to know more about how their relationship blossomed.

They had a great church ceremony with a choir singing beautiful hymns and the Pastor was very passionate. Genesis, who is the daughter of a Pastor was glowing as she said her vows to Oliver in front friends, family, and most importantly God. They had a wonderful brunch reception at The M Resort with great food and heartfelt speeches. It was a wonderful day and I was happy to be there to capture it.

They also left me this wonderful review which truly appreciate.

“We spent a lot of time looking for the right videographer for us and we are SO happy we went with Lighten Films. We were looking for someone that specifically does Same-Day-Edits (SDE) with a style that blends the ceremony, the reception, the speeches, and some music. While Lighten Films can do SDEs, we ended up not being able to have it done because of our selected venue. Since we weren’t able to have an SDE, we talked extensively about our other options. Suzi and Terrence (wife and husband of Lighten Films) were so patient, understanding, and very accommodating!

On the day of the wedding, we were concern about audio during he speeches. The venue we chose did not allow for an AV equipment so a family-friend brought a little karaoke speaker and a wireless microphone to go with it. It was hard to hear the speeches even though they were shouting in the mic. We were sooo happy to hear the video’s audio clear and just fine!! 🙂

We are ever so grateful. Thank you Lighten Films!!!”Genesis and Oliver
