This love story is seriously right out of a movie. Debbie is a Chinese-American from New Jersey. Adam is from England. The two met in Switzerland when Debbie lived there for a work-assignment. They soon fell in-love, but Debbie had to move back to the states. They spent many a weekends thousands of feet in the sky traveling across the Atlantic to see one another. Finally, Adam surprised her at her apartment and asked her to marry her.

Debbie and Adam tied the knot and held their reception at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson. Adam’s family and friends flew in from England and made the party very exciting. The whole day was filled with tears and laughter, and it was fun witnessing these two families coming together.

It was a pleasure working with the awesome Clifford Cooper of Cliff C Photography, and CJ the DJ for the reception entertainment. Cliff was the chillest photographer I worked with, and I recommend him highly. I actually caught on video a great example of how wedding photographers and cinematographers should communicate and coordinate! I’m plannning on posting another blog post on that topic, so stay tuned (Thanks Cliff, I owe you a beer.) We had a great team for this wedding: best friend and fellow filmmaker Daniel Dai, and the talented Victor Lee for another wedding. We hope you enjoy this short film!
