John and Ami are friends of my husband's. They all wear the green and grey as employees for the National Park Service. John told Clay (my husband), that they were having a cliff-side dirtbag wedding. Clay decided it must be filmed to be remembered forever, and that is where I entered the party. Long Canyon is a long, glorious canyon that winds down to the Colorado River. They were married, barefoot, with toes on the slick rock, looking off a massive cliff towards the river and the La Sal Mountains. John and Ami fell in love watching sunsets and camping under the milky way, so this was all so fitting.
One thing I love about weddings is that there are no rules. You can get married where, how, and when you want, and John and Ami took full advantage of that, surrounded by family and friends cheering and hugging them on.
One of the best parts of my job is hearing back from the bride after they see their film. Ami wrote this to me: "Leslie, John and I both teared up watching it. This will be so special to us and our families. So amazing that you also included such special small moments like my Mom and her sister talking together. Wow it's so perfect!! There are no words to describe how meaningful this is to us and how much gratitude we have toward you. Even Orion started kicking around while we watched it!"
Congratulations John and Ami!
