Wedding videographer in Cluj | The wedding of Alexandra & Alexandru

Team player as a wedding videographer in Cluj

DaVinci Cluj, the elegant restaurant featuring panoramic views as well as a splendid garden, is the perfect place for people who love nature, such as Alexandra and Alexandru and also a perfect spot for a wedding videographer in Cluj to shoot fabulous memories. The wedding’s event planner, Geta Ungurean, together with her team, intuited this perfectly when organizing their event at this venue, that gives you the feeling of intimacy and quietness, yet it’s so close to the heart of the city . What we noticed and enjoyed was the extreme attention to details as well as the personal touch that Geta subtly incorporated, and which we tried to capture in our wedding film as well. However, both for us and for our friends, Stefan and Andra, from Stefan Fekete Photography, the biggest advantage of the external organization was the joy and peace of the couple, which translated into a very natural and relaxed event.

Our bride and groom are passionate about nature, they are the typical travelling couple if there is such a definition anyway. So the shooting on the wedding day took place in the botanical garden of Cluj, where the two also met for the first time as we orchestrated a nice first look scenery for the bride and groom. Between the shooting and the religious ceremony, the civil ceremony was held, officiated in the central park by the City Mayor himself. The party, at DaVinci Restaurant, which presents amazing opportunities for any wedding videographer in Cluj, was exuberant and full of dancing, thanks to Arpy & Zip Band who created the perfect party atmosphere, so we were able to blend in perfectly with the guest and film some amazing party sequences.

Hobbies and passions reflected in the wedding details

Alexandra and Alexandru have a variety of passions: they love traveling, sports (especially hiking and skiing) as well as nature. And, since we are interested in the very same things, we enjoyed looking at the spinning Earth globe next to the candy bar and the little framed tree that encouraged us to try all the delicious cakes. Nevertheless, our favourite part was the wedding favours, in the form of a little Sequoia tree. The couple fell in love with this plant during one trip in San Francisco, and so they got the idea of this wedding memory that lasts… 3500 years and must be planted in a pot. Thus, the wedding favours were not only highly original but also environmentally friendly. Personally, we can’t wait to see what they will come home with from their next adventure,  Machu Picchu!

Mountain wedding the Southern Carpathians | Andreea & Iustin

We love filming weddings that are in serene places, and the beauty of the Parang Mountains, one of the highest mountain ridges in the Southern Carpathians, was hard to rival in the case of this mountain wedding. Andreea and Iustin celebrated their wedding in Petrosani, a city surrounded by a deep green landscape, with lush forests and beautiful churches. The couple has been for many years together until they decided to get married. Thus, they wanted their wedding to be something really special. And indeed it was.

Mountain wedding - shooting with the couple

We had our first discussion with Andreea and Iustin via Skype. We still remember how easygoing it all was, and how down-to-earth and nice they were. Fast forward a couple of months and we were on our way to this mountain wedding together with our friends Stefan Fekete and Dumitru Andra. They are a couple based in Cluj and they are amazing wedding photographers. The road to Petrosani was incredibly congested due to heavy traffic, so we were all very relieved when we finally got to the hotel and met the couple for a short briefing.

The ceremony and the shooting on the wedding day

The next day started with the usual preparations around 12. Iustin first saw Andreea at the religious ceremony in the church where the bride according to traditions entered the church together with her father.  The whole event was very elegant but kept simple, which made for a very classy and emotional note. Regarding this romano-catholic ceremony, it was probably one of the best we have ever attended: the priest’s speech was both impressive and funny, and the conveyed ideas had a long-lasting effect. Afterwards, we held a video shooting session with the couple in some nearby locations and then headed for the party.

Hotel Rusu, mountain wedding venue

A wonderful tent to celebrate this mountain wedding

The tent where the celebration took place is located right next to Hotel Rusu and offers an amazing view, especially during sunsets which exactly matched the reception time in our case. Later on the party was very animated, with a lot of dancing. The music consisted of a classical part (played live) and the lively party songs mixed by DJ Cristian Daniel Rusu, a very talented DJ from Cluj. Another highlight was the show made by two artists who juggled with fire and torches and left everyone amazed for a couple of minutes. We remember being in awe at their skills too and thinking about what a beautiful and special wedding night we were filming.
