When I think back on Heidi and Nate’s wedding day, a couple of central themes came to mind. One of those themes was music. Heidi just so happens to be an amazing singer and performer (she sings for the jazz group Heidi Mikhail and the Justic League), so it was no surprise that the music that the couple chose throughout the day was some of the best wedding day music I’ve ever experienced. The breathtaking cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” that I used in the film was performed just before the ceremony by a fiend of the couple, Matt Thornton from Arizona. The couple also booked an amazingly entertaining band named Project Chameleon to play at the reception. They kept the party going late into the night!
Another theme that comes to mind is Heidi’s Egyptian heritage. Many of the wedding guests traveled from around the world to witness Heidi and Nate’s beautiful wedding. From Heidi’s henna art to the belly dancers, camel-shaped cookies and Egyptian-themed cake at the reception, many unique details contributed to making their wedding day special.
Heidi and Nate, thanks so much for letting me film your wedding day.
