Amanda, a Bay Area resident, grew up going to McCall with her family. Naturally, the lake is close to her heart and was a fitting location to marry the love of her life, Anish. Anish and Amanda’s destination wedding was about as pretty and elegant as it gets. If you are looking for a place to get married, your search should begin and end at the Shore Lodge in McCall. We had some fun with smoke grenades, stars, Indian dancing, and of course, the lake. The Bhasin’s are pretty much the best and their wedding is among our favorites we’ve filmed.

Wedding Movie // The Murphys


There’s something pretty special about weddings in San Francisco. The city has a certain romance to it that makes it the perfect setting for a love story. Colleen and Keith tied the knot at the amazing Fairmont Hotel and the event was about as elegant and beautiful as you could imagine. Everything, from the Murphy’s first look overlooking the city skyline to the reception with a panoramic view of the bay, was about as perfect and fairytale-esque as a couple could hope for.

Wedding Movie // Dress Whites

In the midst of Gordie and Rachel’s wedding, I overheard someone say that it felt like we were all witnessing some sort of Nicholas Sparks love story: the solider in his military whites marries a beautiful princess with sweeping vineyards and a pond as a backdrop. It truly was the stuff that Sparks dreams about. The was a sincerity and authenticity in the Nash’s love story that will stick with us for a long time. After watching their film, it may stick with you too.

Wedding Movie // All Smiles


You know those people who seem like they’re always happy? The types who seem to smile all the time and appreciates life moments (the little moments and the big ones). Jake and Alicia are those types of people. They were meant to be together. On a warm July day at Callippee Golf Course, the couple were married among some of their closest friends and family. Aside from the heartfelt ceremony, the beautiful golden hour, and the funny toasts, the dance party is probably what stood out the most. Let’s just say these people knew how to party. We couldn’t be happier for Jake and Alicia and look forward to the many smiles that are yet to come.

“A new day will come, and when the sun shines it’ll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why.” – Samwise Gamgee, “Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers”

Ok, we didn’t go to the shire to film the Catbagan’s wedding and Frodo Baggins wasn’t technically at the wedding, but JRR Tolkien would have been proud nevertheless. Samwise’s words (which were read by one of the groomsmen during the ceremony) held true throughout the day: “There is some good in the world…and it’s worth fighting for.” Chad and Priscilla’s Half Moon Bay wedding was a pretty special day and served as an important reminder that there is much good (and love) in this world.

July 16 was a pretty special day. David and Pojai tied the knot at Picchetti Winery among an intimate gathering of family and friends. The day was filled with romance, happy tears, kettle corn and sparklers. If you ask us, those are 4 ingredients for the perfect day.

There are many essential elements to a wedding: a couple in love, guests, flowers, rings, etc. We realized that having a mariachi band at your wedding ceremony and reception should also be on everyone’s “wedding essentials” list. Ed and Felisa’s elegant July wedding featured a little bit of everything. From having the most lavish flower arrangements we have ever seen, to providing froyo as guests left the ceremony and mariachi music at every turn (did we mention how much we loved the mariachi?), the Garcia’s sure knew how to throw a party. Wine and Roses provided the setting and the Garcia’s brought the party. We are just glad we were invited!

No, this isn’t an episode of Friday night lights. It’s the real life love story of Danny and Lanni Jones. Danny, a varsity football coach and teacher at a local high school married the love of his life, Lanni, who also happens to be a teacher, at Clos La Chance Winery in San Martin. We’re pretty sure the two of them had smiles on their faces from the beginning of the day until their bubble exit. Danny said the wedding was the best football play he had ever drawn up, and we can’t help but agree.

Devin and Nicole were meant for each other and it was one of those things we picked up on right away. On June 25, 2016 the couple tied the night at Round Hill Country Club in Alamo. From the pre-wedding antics with the guys, to the laid back atmosphere with the girls, this ended up being one of those weddings we’d like to live over and over again. Luckily, with this wedding film, we can go back in time whenever we would like!

11 and 13. That’s how old Stephen and Megan were when they started “going out.” Fast forward 15 years and the couple tied the night at Ruby Hill among a lively gathering of family and friends. Many aspects of the day stood out, but the surprise dance Stephen and his roughly 100 groomsmen performed at the reception may have been the highlight. As Megan said in her vows, love is a struggle and it’s a matter of choosing who you are going to struggle with. I think the two of them chose wisely. We had a lot of fun with the Eguilos family.
