“There are a million great memes out there on the web, but this for me, takes the cake. We were out filming my cousin Danny’s wedding. He was marrying Nicky, who was as stunning a bride as any. The ceremony was beautiful and the words they spoke to each other had so much meaning that you’d think a great author wrote them for the couple. We arrived at the location for their photo session and that is when it happened!

Our adorable flower girl, who had been sound asleep in one of the bridesmaids arms, began to pee all over the bridesmaid! It was a moment I will never forget, for in 13 years I have never seen anything more funny and adorable. The bridesmaid just stood there in shock, in the cool March air, and the flower girl ran off to play with my son, who was the ring bearer. It was then that our cameras caught this moment. Nicky trying not to laugh (not too successful) at the bridesmaid covered in urine. Thus, this meme was born.

Moments can be lost forever. They can be easily remembered by thinking back to the day, but there is nothing better than a photograph or video to bring out the true emotion of those moments. These are, after all, the best moments in your life, so why not document them and hold them close to your heart while you grow old together? Live, laugh and love.

The Celebrate Life Series: Greg Lassik from Endless Wave Studios- An Artisan of Wedding Cinematography

Usually, the Celebrate Life Series features rock stars from the special events industry who provide the talent, production and design required to have a fabulous once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

For this episode, the focus is on the super-cool guy on the other side of the lens who captures the day’s magic and delivers it first class in a distinctively-crafted short film.

When you start browsing Greg Lassik’s impressive SDE (Same Day Edit) portfolio online, a few things will happen…

Greg Lassik's Tribute Ink- A Phoenix Rising1) You’ll never consider “just having your uncle bring his old camcorder” on some crusty tripod to your wedding “just to get the good parts…” ever again.

2) You’ll never consider just having your friend who is “pretty good with her iPad,” hold up that thing like a total doofus for 4 hours just to end up with raw footage that makes everyone nauseous…. ever again.

3 )You’ll quickly learn to appreciate the difference between someone who knows how to upload way too many grainy selfie-style phone clips to facebook which just annoys most of your friends- and someone like Greg from Endless Wave Studios.

Lassik is a cinematographer.  An artisan of short wedding films that “gets it.”  He understands that quality, creativity, pacing and personality are essential characteristics to broadcast regardless of which side of the camera you are focusing on.

He’s also one of the biggest fans of Back to the Future you’ll ever meet, an avid surfer, a super dad and one of the fortunate few who understands the difference between success and fulfillment.

Jani and Marcello Deliver the WOW! Rose and Joe’s Wedding Reception at The Venetian with Special Guest: Kim Sozzi

Rose & Joe having the time of their lives with special guest, Kim Sozzi

Last week, I assisted my Signature Events partner, Jason Jani with artist relations and event direction at the Palazzo Ballroom of the Venetian for Rose & Joe’s wedding reception.  Jason, owner of Sound Connection Entertainment, arranged for the dance chart-topping singer, Kim Sozzi to perform a surprise set for the guests after the first course.

Rose & Joe wanted their wedding reception to be exceptional, so they chose the Palazzo Ballroom of  the Venetian.  They wanted their entertainment experience to have a modern, yet elegant flair, so they chose Jason’s firm to handle the production.  Then, like many of our clients, Rose and Joe wanted their once in lifetime celebration to be extraordinary; so they asked us to come up with a WOW factor moment that they and their  guests would never forget.

Since Rose & Joe are both big fans of dance music and recording artist Kim Sozzi, having Kim make a special appearance and perform a personalized set of their favorite songs at the reception became the ultimate concept and desire; Jason delivered and made it happen.

As a result, Rose, Joe and their guests experienced a dance set that deserves to be in the new book release, The Best Wedding Reception…Ever. After the first course was served, Jason played the classic ballad, At Last by Etta James to pack the floor with couples;  followed by an Italian family favorite, The Tarantella, to warm up the dance floor with smiles and laughter.    The stage was impeccably set for  Jason to “Crush It” and take Rose & Joe’s  wedding reception to the Signature Event level.

Kim Sozzi entered from the grand staircase into an eruption of  cheers and applause.  The guests were blown away and couldn’t believe that Kim was singing her biggest hits like “Feel Your Love” right in front of them. Literally!  A seasoned professional, Sozzi sang her songs down off the stage, right in the middle of the crowd, never taking the spotlight away from the guests of honor.  The room’s ambiance was filled with the best of both worlds, energy and intimacy. Rose and Joe looked like they were floating on air.  The joy on their faces was priceless as they were enjoying every minute of the moment. At one point, I checked in with Jason to confirm that all was right with the world and he said, “Look at how happy Rose & Joe are right now, this is why I do this.”

Special thanks to Jimmy Silva from the Venetian for his hospitality and professionalism; he and Dave Mocera always provide a first class experience for everyone that walks through their doors.

While we are on the subject of the best that the Special Events industry has to offer, check out the cinematic excellence that Greg from Endless Wave Studios produced for the newlyweds. Greg specializes in producing mini-film featurettes for his clientele the day of their event known as same day edits.” A couple doesn’t have to wait 6 weeks or 6 months to re-live the magic anymore. In Rose and Joe’s case, not only did Greg produce a professional music video that was played on the Venetian’s large drop down screens before their grand entrance, he also created a full production featurette of the days highlights that played right before cake cutting.  Greg’s latest blog entry goes into more detail…    “I think a story is only complete when you are there for everything, the making of the cappuccino in the morning, the giving of gifts, vows, and kisses, and right to the last song. This is why we can give back such a complete story.”

Check out his ‘same day edit’ artistry below.  One of my favorite parts is when Rose sent Joe a gift before the ceremony and later on when they made their grand entrance into the Palazzo.  I was there in the moment and it was awesome; watching it again with this level of connoisseur-like editing, camera work and musicality was just as breath-taking. The ultimate stamp of approval came from my wife who teared up after I showed it to her today.  With watery eyes she said, “tell Greg he did he a great job”… an emotional smile and a kodak-moment laugh immediately followed.

To see more highlights, live footage and behind the scenes interviews, check out Jason’s video log below.

I look forward to teaming up with Jason in the future for more Signature Collaborations.
