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!

Debbie & Zack | Castle Green Wedding Video | 5/4/18

Debbie & Zack’s Castle Green wedding video was off the chain! I don’t typically say things like that, but it was!

It was truly a unique and one of a kind wedding from Debbie & Zack. Being a themed-wedding planner herself, Debbie intricately and beautifully planned her own sci-fi/Dr. Who-themed wedding!  From the Avengers, Harry Potter, X-men, Star Wars, magic, and more, this wedding was such a delight and right in the heart of Pasadena at the perfect, historic setting of Castle Green!

Alan Katz from Great Officiants perfectly setup the ceremony with his wild antics and performance with some awesome yet personal vows in the ceremony. It all tied up perfectly.

The cocktail hour had some cool potions as cocktails and Tam Vo performing some magic tricks to the guests and the couple. Best use of cocktail hour time I’ve experienced yet!

The reception’s theme was full of stars which reflects the sci-fi theme and being in space.

I can imagine how much of a dream this wedding must have been for them. Balloon artists, photobooth, sunset photos on the rooftop, and a sendoff all in a magic castle was the perfect way to end this dream wedding.

You just gotta see the whole Highlights to see what I’m talking about!

Watch below for all the goodies!
