Alyse and David // Omni Los Angeles and St. Anthony's Croation Church Wedding Film


Alyse and David // Omni Los Angeles and St. Anthony's Croation Church Wedding Film

A perfect Southern California summer day, with a side of rain! Alyse met with us over a year ago, she had seen a friend’s wedding film that we captured, and she knew she wanted the same thing for her wedding day. David wanted whatever made Alyse happy, hence they booked us. Ever since that day, the spunk and fun that this couple shares gives us goosebumps. They fit so well together and love so real, it’s epic! What none of us expected was a rainstorm in July, especially since California is in full scale drought mode. But we can only conclude that their match must have inspired some tears of joy from above and that the rain was a result of that! ;-) 

They began getting ready in downtown LA at the Omni Hotel, then headed to St. Anthony’s Croatian Catholic Church, were the reception would also be held. Talk about wow, their Priest was phenomenal, although a Croatian Church- he did some of the mass in Italian for Alyse’s side of the family- talk about talent! Then there was his singing- well let’s just say we might as well have been in Rome! But the fun didn’t stop there, the reception was a blast. As the rain poured down in buckets, we partied the night away with fun and love and some really good Croatian food, talk about yum! ;-)

Everything was amazing, check out the film we were inspired to make! Once again, congrats Alyse and David!!

Erin and Eric // Triunfo Creek Vineyards Wedding Movie // 6.14.14 (Official)

Erin and Eric are two amazing individuals full of passion and love. If you notice throughout the film, they are constantly smiling at and with each other- it’s so awesome!! Their family and friends are a big part of who they are and why they are where they are today. It took place at Triunfo Creek Vineyards, which is all outdoors, so we always love that! The kissing under the sycamores is especially our favorite part!!

We had a stellar team with us to pull it off, one of favorite planners Alex Rembac coordinated the event. Then, thanks to Erin’s Mom, the design style was pretty much all her- down to the hearts where each bridesmaid and groomsman stood- love the DIY additions to the wedding- so cool! Taking the awesome photos was none other than our favorite photo company Donald Norris! 

So we had a blast the entire time, everything turned out perfect in the end for Erin and Eric and of course it would. Anyone who watches The Amazing Race every weekend would have the perfect day and perfect wedding! So congrats, Erin and Eric, and we wish you love and happiness and fun- remember life is always about the Race and not the destination!

Jacqueline and Nicholas // Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, St. Brendan Catholic Church, California // 6.8.2013

  A few years ago a bride-to-be came to us named Adrienne...and at the time, who could have guessed that her story would lead to another wedding that we would be blessed to capture! We knew Jacqui just before she was off to Med school - before Nicholas was even a glisten in her eye. We hoped someday, as wedding professionals do, that we would get to tell her love story - but back then we wished her well on her new adventure in Chicago. Fast forward 5 years and we get a call from Jacqui that she has finished school and met the man of her dreams - and they want us to capture their day! Awesome, we love it when a plan comes together! ;-)

  This is their story, and we were happy to capture it, so it can be relived forever and ever. Now we just have to wait 20 or so more years for Adri and Jacqui's kids to have their wedding day and it will come full circle- but no pressure Jacqui and Nicholas! ;-)
