Here is their full length wedding video that took place on a Carnival cruise. From Los Angeles to Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Cayman and back, experience the love!
When we found out about Erica and Tom's story, we couldn't stop telling everyone we knew! They met by chance on a food/dating web site. Tom kept posting pictures of his recipes and cooking creations - and Erica thought that anyone who would do that couldn't be that bad. When she first emailed him, he said that he lived on Nebraska street in LA. They found out that they not only lived on the same cross street - but in the same building!!!! That is a love meant to be :-)
This wedding was so beautiful. We loved the succulents used for design and centerpieces. We loved the candles, the mason jars, the trees and the great people! It took place at the Birchwood Room at the magical Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. Jamie B. came up from San Clemente, and we had a great time working with her team. Enjoy their Wedding Film!

Jennifer and Andrew - This couple knows how to Dance through Life! From their choice of shoes to the spins in the photo session and the wonderful moves on the dance floor - their dancing is impeccable, and they share the love with their family and friends.
This wedding took place at the Sinai Temple in Los Angeles. This is a unique venue that we love. It has space for every part of a wedding, including a spacious ballroom and a choice of ceremony rooms that are both huge and intimate. We love the stained glass here - and Kim Fox did a great job finding the most dramatic locations!
We hope you love watching their wedding Highlight video! Congratulations, and enjoy Passover!

“And now by the virtue of the authority invested in me, and by the laws of the Cayman Islands, I now pronounce you husband and wife!” This was entirely epic!
We set off with Melissa, Chris and their families for a week long wedding adventure! They had their reception on a Carnival Cruise and the ceremony on Grand Cayman - and we were there to capture the love and life that transpired. We began at LAX and then set off to Fort Lauderdale, Florida- where we met our ship the Carnival Conquest. It was perfect, because along with their immediate families, 75 other close friends and relatives came along for the ride. This meant that the ship was more like the Mezzanatto/Jimenez wedding extravaganza ship- everywhere the family gathered to celebrate Chris and Melissa’s love!
In the end, it was to be one of the best weeks of their lives and ours! On the island we were joined by pastor Oral Mclaughlin, who did a fabulous job officiating the wedding! We worked with a Carnival photographer on the ship and Janet Jarchow on the island, whose shots were gorgeous- but then with the backdrop of Grand Cayman and the bright turquoise water you can’t go wrong! In Melissa’s words, we captured “the greatest love story ever told, their love story.” Congrats once more Melissa and Chris!!! You guys rock!
This is a fun Highlight made from their longer full length Wedding Film! It was like taking a glamorous trip to Cuba with this one! Their priest had such a great message, and the band was amazing, bringing their fun all the way from San Diego. Beverly Hills never had so much fun!

Most California's are sunny people, I am wedding wise- but for days of editing and just hanging out in my woodland backyard, the rain suits me nicely. Which brings me to Tip 3, for coming up to Valentine's Day! Since we are almost in the month of LOVE! Brining on the rain means bringing on the cloudy, which means you'll need a little more light than usual to brighten up a room!! Nothing says it better, than giving your loved one a candle and a jar of matches! Not following me? First, pick their favorite scent and get that candle - Vanilla is one of the # 1 scents for people, so that's a win win choice. However, for myself I like the Yankee Candle Pacific Coconut candle. It has a gorgeous smell to it! Okay, so we have our candle, now get some matches and tie a note to them saying- "We're the perfect Match!" and you've got a winner! At least in my book! Now all we need is some rain! ;-)
It's almost here! Yes, we are 23 days out until Valentine's Day!!! So, from now until Valentine's Day we will be offering some tips and fun to make the most of Valentine's Day 2015! No matter if you're off to the Empire State Building to meet Tom Hanks, or sitting down to watch Gable and Colbert fall in love, or even heading off to the carnival with Ryan Gosling- we are here for 23 days of love.
So here's our 1st tip! Take this link: http://days.to/valentines-day/2015 and make it your homepage for the next 23 days! Nothing will get you in the mood more and perhaps give a hint to that special someone that Valentine's Day is almost here! Once you do this you are ready for Tip 2!
Since that was relatively easy, we will give away Tip 2, just to get the ball rolling. Nothing says it better than a love note! I was recently reading the February issue of Country Living , yes I am a country girl at heart! In the section of "What Is It Worth?" I found a delightful idea. I had originally thought of this idea as well, due to a Hallmark Card- but that's beside the point! What's important is this reader from Georgia says, "My Boyfriend gave me this working typewriter- complete with a carrying case, manual and love note- on our first Valentine's Day." This is a fabulous idea boys, especially if your girl likes to write! Also, in the CL magazine there is a picture of one and it's pink!
It is to say the least very adorable! So if you are looking for something a little less rosy and better for the figure, why not a typewriter with a love note?! Or maybe you can do all three, after all, it is Valentine's Day! Oh btw, where can you get a pink typewriter? As always, Etsy my favorite online shopping spot- here's a link to help you find the write (get it?) one! Enjoy!
And if you want to see a typewriter in action at a wedding, check out the beginning of Xiaomi and Andrew's video:
When we were in Venice for a wedding, we had a great time walking around the streets of that amazing city! We finally processed a few of the photos and wanted to share them with you! If you are having a wedding in Venice and need a videographer, just contact us. The flight is pretty quick, and the water taxi from the airport to Venice is so easy :-)
