Our CinemaCake Sampler has had an impact in a very short time.  Here are just some of the reviews from the people who made cameos...

 



"The talent of these folks never ceases to amaze me!! Forget about sending popcorn with your videos Sheryl and Dave -- you need to send a GIANT BOX OF TISSUES! I just watched this incredible film you made and you guessed it--tears. While I was moved by seeing so many of our brides and grooms in the film, what got me was the way you meshed all of it together to create a moving story. This is what we do and all the emotion you captured is why we all work so hard to create magical memories. Excellent Job! Wishing you continued success!"

"You nailed this one baby. It pulls at every heartstring I have. Think about how lucky we are to be involved in the most special day of our brides and grooms' lives."

"Look and see - 3 years ago Rachel Silver Barten and Garrett Barten - great day. Thanks Cinemacake for including us!"

"Hi Dave,

That is a beautiful sampler of your work.  It brought me right back to our lovely day at St. Agnes and Overbrook Golf Club.  Can't believe this June will be 2 years already.  My son-in-law Greg will be remembered for his "all right" among the other special moments he and Liz shared on their wedding day.  Priceless."

"Hi Sheryl and Dave,
There should be a warning with your email:  Tissues required.
This is just beautiful. Congratulations on an amazing job!  And I look forward to working with you again soon!"

"A simply wonderful video by our friends at CinemaCake Filmmakers! Ash Mill Farms is one, of many, beautiful location this film was shot at but regardless, this 5 minute reel will probably make you tear up! ♥"

"We are excited to be included in this recent sampler. Beautiful imagery, exceptional sound and a piece that demonstrates flawlessly the art of blending together emotion and timing, the edit. You can hire any number of videographers but there is only one CinemaCake."

"Our friends at CinemaCake Filmmakers put together the most beautiful sampler film that showcases their talents- and the remarkable talents of so many of our professional partners- in such a stunning way! MANY THANKS to Dave, Sheryl, and their gang for including Proud to Plan weddings in your film- we (and our couples) are so lucky to get to work with your team!!!"

Well, maybe it wasn't that easy...

Last week, we made a huge announcement and premiered our brand new website!  We have been working on this site tirelessly for months now and we are so happy to finally share it with everyone.  As we were creating the site, we kept coming back and reviewing what would be shared on the first page.  We had space for one film and couldn't come up with the perfect one.  We work with so many beautiful, unique couples!  How could just one day explain everything we are?  

You know the old saying, "a Chef's breakfast is as plain as boiled eggs."  We have made several reels for other companies' marketing efforts, why not make one that highlights our capabilities?  We decided it was time to create our own sizzle reel, which we call our CinemaCake Sampler.  This is where the real work began.  

Since 2001, CinemaCake has had the privilege of capturing over 1,000 beautiful weddings, so when it was time for us to create a film that showed off our work, you can imagine how difficult it was!  Our team spent dozens of hours reviewing trailers, same day edits, and films, to find the right ingredients.  We not only wanted to showcase our work, but tell a story as well, so finding the best card readings, vows, and speeches became crucial.  After everything had been reviewed and organized, we handed hours of footage and clips off to our incredible editor, Rick Stevens, and had him piece the final story together.  

We couldn't be prouder of our CinemaCake Sampler and we feel like it truly showcases what we do in just a few minutes!  We are so happy to be sharing this film with you now and we can't wait to hear your feelings about it in the comments below!  Maybe you'll see something "Popping up" in your mailbox!

April 28, 2016 in Coming Soon Trailers

Wedding Season is officially upon us and our crews have already had a chance to work with some unique and amazing couples!  We were so thrilled when each of our recent brides personalized their CinemaCakes with a Coming Soon Trailer.  They can’t get enough of the cinematic sneak-peeks, which we deliver within just a few days of their wedding celebration.  Here are a few of our latest trailers!

-Lauren and Ben

On March 25th, Lauren and Ben said "I Do" under a whimsical canopy of pink flowers, before dancing the night away in a beautifully adorned ballroom. We shared their Coming Soon Trailer just a few days later and were thrilled to receive the happy couple's simple response:

"We loveeeeeee it!"

-Amber and Sean

Nothing says spring like fresh flowers, but Amber and Sean took their spring wedding to a whole other level when they were wed in the Horticulture Center greenhouse in Fairmount Park!  We couldn't wait to share their beautiful trailer with the happy couple and they responded almost instantaneously:

"Jess, Craig, Dave and Sheryl, you all did such an amazing job capturing one of the most incredible days of our lives! Not only was your team fun to work with but it seems like they are an extension of our family. Was so great to share the day with you all and even more touching to see what you all shaped from the raw material captured... Excited to see the rest as it come!

Thanks again!

Amber & Sean"

-Christina and James

This couple’s day was nothing short of spectacular!  Christina was stunning in her classic gown and tiara as she walked down the aisle of St. Agatha and St. James church to James.  After the couple exchanged vows, they were joined by over 250 guests at the Union League of Philadelphia for a night of dining and dancing to an incredible band.  Check out the happy couple’s response to their trailer:

Dave,

I was so excited to see your email. While watching the video I kept thinking, "Oh my gosh this trailer is absolutely amazing"! James and I are speechless. We keep watching it over and over again! Thank you so much for sending this to us. We can't wait to see the full video and relive the bet day of our lives.  

Best,

Christina and James
