When explorers were discovering the west, they were setting out on a great adventure to create a better future for themselves. The idea of “going west” captured the hearts and imaginations of everyone who traveled there for a new beginning.
We think this beautifully describes you as you begin your marriage, your greatest adventure. You are the explorers, embracing that spirit of going west, that “westward heart”, as you step out on this incredible journey to forge your future together.
The Wedding of Ghazal and Payam
From Ghazal and Payam:
“Oh man, have you seen our film yet? Go watch our film, then come back to this…. Prescott and his team delivered a phenomenal wedding film, and were a pleasure to work with. There simply is no one in the area creating films of a such a high caliber, and if you are reading this, then you probably realize that after watching the films on his portfolio.
You spend all this time leading up to your big day planning every detail, and on that actual day, you get to see all of that pay off. But it all happens so fast and then the next day its over! Which is why its so important to document it with the right photographer, and the right videographer. I have to say, it was much more difficult finding a wedding videographer. Ghazal and I looked for a long time and I was almost over the notion of even hiring someone because I was so disappointed in the quality of the videos I was seeing. Eventually, my wife came across a film Prescott did for a couple that got married at one of the venue’s we were considering, and I was just floored. I think we watched all of his films that night. Working in the professional creative space myself, my bar for content is very high, and Prescott’s work was well above it. Our Westward Hearts doesn’t make wedding videos, they make films, and theres a big difference between the two. Even though we love the photos and the photographer we worked with, the story, the narrative, all the feels you get on your wedding day, are all much more tangible when portrayed through our film.
Our family, friends, and my wife and I cannot get enough of our film. I look forward to sharing this with our future children and grandchildren in the may years to come.
Thank you so much Our Westward Hearts for this invaluable piece of our history.
– Ghazal and Payam”
