The Resort at Pelican Hill
Just a gorgeous location for a wedding, and our aerial footage really shows it off!! These two were up for anything as we got some amazing shots throughout the venue. Reverend Clift Hufft officiated their ceremony with his usual magic, and the 100 dove release at the end surprised all the guests. Just WOW to Danni's wedding dress...and then the three more changes throughout the night! Danni and Mark treated everyone to a choreographed first dance that was super fun, and The Rembrandt Band played all night, even getting down on the dance floor to sing with the guests. Congratulations to such a sweet couple, and thank you for having us be a part of this wonderful day! xoxo
Private Residence in Corona, CA
What could be more special than having your wedding at your families home! After getting ready at a local hotel, we were off for some fun shots at a park nearby, before the ceremony and reception at Sahar's family home. These two wrote super sweet vows to each other that had everyone tearing up. Dawn wrote and sang a special song for Sahar before their first dance. As the 103 degree day turned to night and cooled off, the party really began with dancing, fireworks, and more dancing! "The sun and the moon". Congratulations Dawn and Sahar, we had a blast filming your day! xoxo.
The Resort at Pelican Hill
"Family become your friends, friends become your family". This was exactly what Allyson and Chris's night was about. We couldn't have had more fun filming all the day's events for these to very special people. Loved their first look, and then having time to get our romantic shots at all the beautiful locations at this venue. Having a chamber ensemble play for the ceremony, cocktails, and the reception dinner made for a romantic evening...orchids hanging from everywhere didn't hurt! Congratulations Allyson and Chris. xoxo.
Loews Hollywood Hotel
Wow, wow, WOW! We love Armenian weddings and all the traditions, not to mention that everyone loves to dance!! It couldn't have beeen a more perfect day. From the musicians and dancing at each families house before the ceremony, to the dressing of the groom and the bride's shoe tradition (where she writes the name of single friends on the bottom of her shoe), capturing these memories was pure FUN! After a traditional Armenian ceremony at the Rose and Alex Pilibos Church, the elegant reception began at Lowes Hollywood. The "Let's Dance" painted on their dance floor prettty much says it all about the night! Laura's dress was stunning, the flowers and decor were magical, and I really loved John's toast to his parents, and to Laura's mother. We filmed John's brother's wedding a few years ago, and it was great to see eveeryone, and their babies!!
Villa Del Sol, Fullerton
Another unique venue for weddings! Neda and Christopher are such a sweet couple, when Christopher saw Neda for the first time he burst into tears. I love "First Looks" and the opportunity it gives us to film truly candid moments with our couples. Their ceremony included a traditional Sofre, and a classical guitarist played while guests were seated. After the ceremony site was turned over for the evening's reception, the party got under way! Really loved both of the toasts, a bit emotional and a lot funny!! Congratulations Neda and Christopher. xoxo
Trump National, Palos Verdes Estates
Who doesn't love having the ocean as the backdrop for your wedding! We had so much fun filming these two, their bridal party, family and friends. A friend of the family officiated their ceremony, and Jennifer and Matt took the time to write out their vows which they then shared with everyone during the ceremony. I LOVE when couples do this. Tears and laughter from everyone as they shared their love story. Great toasts, Matt's father and his band played during the reception, including a special rendition of "Smoke on the Water" (I love that song). A DJ ended the night with a hip hop vibe, what a great party! XOXO Jenn and Matt!!
Rancho Las Lomas, Silverado CA
Rancho Las Lomas is one of our favorite venues. There are so many different locations to have your ceremony and reception in a completely private setting. Amanda and Pat's ceremony took place under huge ancient oak and sycamore trees, totally suiting their rustic themed wedding…loved the pergula the bridal party entered through! These two are such a spiritual couple, and their ceremony perfectly captured their love and commitment to each other, and to God. The following outdoor reception decor and set-up was one of my all-time favorites! A beautiful couple inside and out. All the best Amanda and Pat! xoxo
Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows
The Fairmont Miramar is a really unique venue for weddings, and it totally suited the vibe of Dassi and Devin...fun, laid-back, and super cool! They choose to do a first look, which gave us time to get great shots of the two of them around the venue, and near the beach by the Santa Monica Pier. A beautiful ceremony, tons of great toasts, and a bridal party who knew how to PARTY! Love, love, love this couple!! Thank you Dassi and Devin for having us be a part of your most wonderful day!
Rancho Las Lomas, Silverado CA
Another amazing wedding at Rancho! The ceremony took place at the Teatro with it's hand painted tiles and murals from Portugal. Guests then moved upstairs for cocktails around the fountain while the ceremony site was transformed into their open air reception. Kimberly and Alan were such a FUN couple! We had hours after their first look to take them around the property and get our romantic shots. Loved Alan's story of how he proposed, and Krista's toast to her sister and Alan was one of the best I've ever heard…the best man's toast was just as good!! The rest of the night…can you say DANCE PARTY!!! Congratulations to such a sweet couple and both their families. XOXO
