It’s always so special to work with the same family. We filmed Alyssa’s Sister’s wedding a few years ago so we were so excited to be back for her & Nick’s! The decor on this one was pretty insane. Alyssa was inspired by a garden she saw in Italy so Jeannie from Details Details & Nisie’s Enchanted Florist made it happen on the beautiful Terranea lawn as well as the ballroom. Thank you Alyssa & Nick for allowing us to be a part of your amazing day! Check out their Same Day Edit!

Christine & Joe are simply the best.  LOVED working with this awesome couple!!  Enjoy their SDE!

From the Bride:

“Joe and I met at Pepperdine University during our freshman year. I always say it was fate that brought us together because our paths kept crossing in strange ways throughout our four years there. Our freshman dorms were right next to each other and we met during the first few days of school. We barely talked to one another but a few friendly “hellos” were exchanged. Sophomore year we both chose to study abroad in Lausanne, Switzerland together, but despite our daily French class and our weekends traveling we were just classmates, nothing more. It was not until senior year that I was heading to class in the business building where I saw Joe sitting alone. There were no open tables so I decided to ask if I could study with him. We hit it off and a first date turned into three, and the next thing I knew our senior policy professor was joking in class that we were going to be “Policy wedding number 31”. (Dr. Seshan is attending our wedding!) I knew he was the one when my dad met him at graduation and told me he just met the man I was going to marry. Shortly after graduation, Joe moved to New York City where I shortly followed and we fell in love in the Big Apple. A little over a year later, we decided to move back to Joe’s hometown in Orange County, California where we currently live. In February 2013, we went on a ski trip to Vail, Colorado where Joe had a surprise proposal planned. It was so romantic; he lined an empty ice rink with roses and candles, and it just started to snow as I was walking over. Joe was waiting in the middle of the rink where he asked me to marry him and when I said yes, the spectators watching from around the rink cheered! It was truly a magical moment.”

Kelly & Tan, together with their wedding planner Carolyn Chen, created a totally gorgeous wedding and celebration!  The best part?  They even had a full-on choir and orchestra (50 piece!) to make their ceremony that much more dramatic.  The groom actually wrote and arranged the pieces!  So cool!!  I will probably blog this later but for now, thought I’d share their Same Day Edit.  Enjoy!!!

Time for a much needed blog update!!  And this one definitely deserves to be blogged.  You see… it has everything we love about weddings:  An awesome couple totally in love, personal vows, dogs!, incredible decor, and an awesome team of professionals to work with.

Check out their Same Day Edit which debuted at the after party (which was awesome because we could include some footage of the reception other than just the 1st dance).  And yes… we filmed a bit with a drone.  Super geeky but it results in awesome footage :)

Congrats Brianna & Peter!!
