Hailey & Sam | Columbia Country Club Maryland | November 9, 2019

video

Columbia Country Club in Maryland was where we shot Hailey & Sam’s beautiful Fall wedding.

Stories like theirs never gets old as you see God work his magic between two people. They met on their first day of work in a new city in Colorado – one from DC, the other from Seattle and the rest is history!

It was a frigid day, but still bearable. After an emotional first look between Hailey and her father, Hailey walked up and pointed Sam on his shoulder. You couldn’t tell from the pictures (Lisa from Abby Jiu Photograph) and video that they braved the cold during their first look as well as portrait and bridal party shots on the golf course.

They performed a short Ketubah signing as most Jewish weddings do. However, a priest was brought in as well and was beautiful to see both Jewish and Catholic elements in the ceremony!

Ceremony & Reception

Anne from Anne Kelley Events designed such a gorgeous ceremony site as well as all the decor in the reception site.

Because Jewish weddings have ceremonies after sundown, we typically use our lights, but Frost Lighting I believe provided the lights which definitely helped the visuals immensely.

I tell people all the time I want a daughter simply because I want to know that feeling. I know it will be different than having a boy in many ways. Hailey’s father again teared up during his amazing toast to Hailey and it’s just so beautiful to witness. Definitely being a father is one of the best joys in life and I just.can’t.wait.for.our.children’s.weddings!!

Check out the rest of the fun evening such as their first dance, the Jewish Hora, and the awesome props utilized on the dancefloor!

Kino & Greg | 6.28.19 | Los Willows Estate Wedding San Diego, California

video

It was the first time for us to shoot in Fallbrook which is in San Diego County. Based upon our drone footage, Los Willows Estate looks like a hidden treasure and it truly was!

Beautiful scenery all around and we are happy that Kino & Greg trusted us to capture their beautiful day.

They were actually married one year before on the same day we captured them on June 28th, 2019. They each got ready in their respective suites on site at the venue. Shortly after the beautiful first look happened next to the ceremony site. The light peaking through the land all day was gorgeous!

Despite having been technically married for one year, this did not stop their loving affection for each other as Kino surprised Greg with her beautiful dress and veil.

Ceremony & Reception

Once the ceremony began, the groom entered with his groomsmen on a cool red motorized car. Looked like a children’s toy car but for adults. Grooms definitely need to also have special entrances along with the brides!

Kino crossed the little bridge and walked with her parents to Greg awaiting her and the ceremony officiated by their friend, commenced – a very hilarious ceremony. If I didn’t know any better, he could be a comedian which I complimented him on.

Soon after, they enjoyed a short boat ride along the man-made lake nearby and captured some of their adventure via drone. It’s not everyday your couple gets to enjoy a leisurely boat ride after their ceremony so you then take advantage and get some aerial shots!

Cocktail hour began and a fairly relaxed, yet fun reception commenced with some amazing choreography by Bella Ballroom Dance Studio for their first dance as well as the traditional toasts, cake cutting, bouquet toss, dancing, and further portrait sessions in and around the venue.

It was a beautiful sunny summer day for Kino & Greg and such a joyous time where they can have all members of their families and close friends witness and celebrate their union.

Thanks for allowing us to capture these precious moments on video and congrats again to you guys, all your animals, and future children!

Camille & Vince | 5.17.19 | Hangar 21 Fullerton California

video

Hangar 21 Fullerton California was the reception venue for Camille & Vince’s wedding day. It was such a special one, especially for my wife Susanna who grew up with Camille her whole life! Camille is in fashion and her artistic and creativity were on full display from her wedding dress to the decor.

We spent the morning reconnecting a little bit, recording their card readings to each other as well as them opening their gifts for each other. Lots of tears were shed in the morning from Camille as she opened her gift and read her card to Vince. Her walk down the aisle at St. Denis Parish in Diamond Bar, California was especially special and touching.

We then arrived at Hangar 21 and got so excited to shoot some of the establishing shots and area. There were small aircrafts taking off and landing regularly and wondered where the helicopter would be. The bridal party arrived with the bride and groom and they all started to relax and have some drinks and relax during the bridal party photos. These were particularly fun because of the mix of color and large party. Before the grand helicopter entrance occurred, we began our walk with one of the venue staff and they gave us some quick instructions on where to be during and before flight take-off. You can’t tell, but those helicopter blades swooshing around at fast speeds right over was pretty terrifying. Not going to lie. FREAKED out. But I knew we would get some cool shots, so definitely the fear didn’t stop me.

Camille & Vince definitely looked calm and collected and so cool as they walked out of the helicopter and straight into the reception patio, right before making their grand entrance as newlyweds. Their first dance and parents dances were too sweet and the rest of the evening went off without a hitch with toasts, cake, money dance, bouquet & garter, and more dancing!

We were honored to have captured our friends’ wedding and Susanna was in tears all day as well seeing one of her best friends get hitched to the love of her life, Vince! Blessings to you two!
