Meeting at the venue because mark is only 15 minutes away from it and its dumb to have him come to the office to then go back to go back to the office to then go home. "It's more efficient this way"

Couple & Party
Bride: Elyse Gryniewicz
Groom: Samuel Bates
Party Details: (Each side size, family details, etc.)
Sam & Elyse met on dating app. Been together for year and half, worked as ER Nurse & Teacher. He is starting police Academy. C&R at same place. Wants recordings of both.
Elyse loves country, sam "does not care for it", so probably not
Elyse didn't have any huge concerns about music. Liked what we used in the Feature. She identifies with lyrics, so we need to pay attention to that for this one.
More focused on love, not super religious-- doesn't want any religious focus in there.
Likes the vows going back and forth
"doesn't need a ton of video of people getting ready" stressed this twice
"my parents have been married for 30 years and my sister and I watch the video every year"--"what we like about it is how much fun everyone is having," dancing, fun, etc.
Family is very important
lets try to get something during family formals, and more footage of everyone just being together, having fun, and celebrating.
