Bacara Wedding // Angela & Henry

How darling is this couple and this wedding?  The Santa Barbara coastline is one of our most favorite places to film.  And on a gorgeous day like this??  Pure heaven!

Angela & Kevin actually met 10 years prior to their wedding in high school.  In July in fact… which is why the decided on a July wedding.  How cute is that??

I personally loved the cute pink backdrop behind their head table and being able to work with Stephanie Williams (love her) – especially when she snuck them out for some amazing beach shots at sunset.  Enjoy their highlights!

One & Only Palmilla Wedding // Jessica & Howard

In January, we were off to Cabo to film Jessica & Howard’s wedding at the beautiful One & Only Palmilla.  If you know us well, you know we LOVE this property – the service and staff there is BEYOND. And so is the ambience!

Jessica & Howard’s wedding was incredible.  From the fireworks at the beach-side welcome party to the cigar bar during the reception, it was INCREDIBLE.  We really enjoyed working with them and their family.  The cherry on top??  Being able to work with an amazing team of vendors who are also great friends!  I can’t wait to share their highlights with you.  Enjoy!

Wine Country Wedding // Kate & Matt

We had such a blast filming this wedding!  The day was full of laughs… these two are simply hilarious and so much fun.  I love couples that don’t take themselves too seriously.  Here are just a few things that made this wedding unique:  Their “cheese” cake, their personalized sunglasses, & the awesome 80′s band they had perform at their reception.

Kate & Matt live in NYC but they decided to hold the wedding near where the bride grew up in beautiful Sonoma, California.  The event was centered around their guests having a good time… which they certainly did as you’ll see in their highlights below.  Luckily Leila Brewster was there to photograph all of the moments, one of our good friends and super talented photographer.  Enjoy!!

New York Plaza Wedding // Lindsay & Mike

I’m back from an adventurous vacation in Patagonia and ready to blog!  I can’t wait to share some awesome couples and their weddings from late last year.  I have a queue of films to blog so I thought I’d start our annual “march madness” a bit early!!

First up…  Lindsay & Mike’s gorgeous wedding at The Plaza in New York City.  The wedding was super romantic with elegant ballrooms and beautiful design/production by Tracy Taylor Ward.  I loved the plethora of candles (especially the tapered ones at the reception).  It was fun working with Samuel Lippke on the east coast.  We had a blast taking the couple around Central Park for their portrait session!  And how cool was the champagne pour?  I’m glad those are coming back!  Enjoy their highlights!

Florence Italy Wedding // Denise & Tommy

WARNING:  have a box of tissues handy for this highlights!  I couldn’t be more excited to share this one.  Florence, Italy is already dripping with romance, but when you add this couple – well you’ll see.

A couple things to note:  Denise & Tommy decided at the last moment not to share their personal vows during the ceremony because they weren’t sure they could get through it.  This ended up being a blessing because after the ceremony, we brought them up to the top of the castle (yes… their venue was a castle) where they said them to each other in private.  This was so touching and I think is actually a GREAT way to exchange personal vows!!  Second, how amazing were the fireworks?? This was the groom’s surprise to the bride.  It was totally cool.  The three day event which included a wine tasting at a Tuscan vineyard was amazing.  We had a great time with the couple and their friends and family.  This is what I love about destination weddings… they bring so many people together and it creates new life-long friendships and a true experience versus just one day.  It also helped that Ben Singleton of Italy Weddings did a fabulous job planning out all the details for the couple.  They didn’t have to worry about a thing!  Congrats Denise & Tommy!
