Rea & Ian’s Story
Rea and I were officially introduced when I was urged by friends to ask her to the Junior Prom. I was told it would be a good idea to ask her, even though I barely knew her. Who knew it would blossom into the relationship it has. We quickly formed a bond around our love for one another and close family and friends. It’s hard to explain our relationship in a few words but we know we have something special and we don’t take it for granted.
Planning a wedding is a full time job, anyone who has done it knows this to be true. But let us say that Steve and Ton-Essa made everything easier when it came to our film. From the moment we met them in their studio until the cameras shut off they were fantastic. Their professionalism and knowledge is unparalleled and this was clear throughout our process and on our final film. Their ability to incorporate guests in the film and make us feel comfortable and stress free was something we truly valued. We practically counted down the days until we would receive our final film. When it came we were speechless! The film blew us away! We aren’t exaggerating when we say we watched it at least 20 times in the first few days of having it. One of the best suggestions they made was to order the raw footage as well. We were hesitant at first but when you see yourself go through the unbelievable range of emotions during speeches and the ceremony it makes it all worth it. We can’t begin to thank both Steve and Ton-Essa enough for their hard work on our film. If you are looking for someone to make your day special for years to come, there is no competition for these two, they are the best!!
Thanks guys, your the best!
Ian and Rea Sarachan
