What a beautiful and unique wedding! Steve and Lixian live just north of Santa Clarita and decided to hold their ceremony and reception right in their own backyard! We headed up to Santa Clarita early to film the bride getting ready at the hotel and got some great shots of her getting her hair, makeup, and dress ready for the big day! Afterwards, we drove up to the ranch house and after a little bit of confusion with Apple Maps vs the directions we printed up from Google, we made it! We got some footage of the guests arriving and the groom and his best man posing for pictures before the ceremony started. The ceremony overlooked a scenic valley right outside their house, which made for a beautiful backdrop. Afterwards, we worked with the photographer to get some amazing shots of the bridal party on the ranch at sunset, and even got some funny shots of the bride and groom playing with a pitchfork. Luckily no one was injured during the incident 🙂 During the reception, the bride and groom had two different bands for the evening’s entertainment, one of which was the bride and groom’s own band. Just for the evening, they called themselves “Wedd Zepplin” and they put on a great show!
