Wedding Sweepstakes Winners Wed at Crystal Springs Golf Course
For our most recent sweepstakes winners’ wedding, we found ourselves at Crystal Springs Golf Course in Burlingame, California, on a gorgeous spring day documenting Melissa and James’ big celebration!
Melissa and James had casually thrown their names in for NST Pictures’ bi-annual wedding sweepstakes, not particularly expecting much, so it was all the more fun when we got to break the good news to them!
“When I first got the notification that we had won, everyone was telling me it was too good to be true,” Melissa recounts. “But then I received the contract with the zeros at the bottom and did a little more research on NST Pictures…and knew it was official and we had won the jackpot!”
“We had always wanted a video for our wedding but it just wasn’t in the budget,” she continues. “So to win this giveaway was incredible – everyone leading up to [the day] was amazing.”
Melissa and James have been together for 7 years, and with an 18-month engagement, she felt like she was able to have ample time for planning and paying off wedding expenses. As for the big day itself, “you’re going to be caught up in so many things and before you know it, the night will be over, so take it slow and enjoy every moment – it’s going to go by really really fast,” James advises couples planning their weddings.
“With so much going on that day, moments will be missed, and video is one more way to capture the memories,” Melissa adds.
Since they’re based across the country in California, we scheduled a Skype video call with Melissa and James to send them their trailer film and see their reactions as they watched it for the first time… and it was fantastic.
“I love our photos but while watching the video, I felt like I was back in the moment…I’m even getting a little emotional,” Melissa shares. “Video is just different – it really captured the mood.”
