Wow! We were so lucky to be part of Kelly and Daerick's special day! It was like a destination wedding - taking place at The Fire Garden in Bonsall. There were family and friends, amazing musicians, performances, fire on the dance floor, fire in the trees, an after party and an ice cream truck! When you watch the video you'll see even more! The party went so late that many of the guests just set up their tents and spent the night! It was a unique location for this kilt wearing clan!

We love Alyse and David. Their day was epic fun! Being Southern California cinematographers, we typically get sunny days year round, so when it started to rain out of the blue, it wasn't the something blue we were expecting! Thankfully, the rain was rather good luck, it made for an amazing father of the bride speech and everyone was excited to be in the midst of it all! The rain couldn't stop Alyse’s infectious laugh and David's wide grin, they were in one word, adorable! It was an amazing day!
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!!
“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!

Ashley and Kenton had an incredible wedding by the water in Marina del Rey, our home town! They got ready at the Ritz-Carlton and just hopped around the block to FantaSea Yachts. We loved working with Erin Adams from FantaSea Yachts, who was their coordinator. The ceremony had an added bonus, the music was sung by Reba Buhr.
Enjoy their full wedding film!
