John and Mesalina are in love. Like really in love. Their love began long distance, but neither oceans nor thousands of air miles could keep them apart. On a lovely September day in Northern California, the Barbuto’s shared their vows. The festivities were a fun blend of Australian and American sensibilities against the beautiful backdrop the Blackhawk Auto Museum provided.

Livermore Valley’s wine country is really underrated, when it comes to wedding locales. Luckily the Wierdas know about the East Bay’s best kept secret and made Martinelli Event Center their location of choice for their September 19 nuptials. Andy and Stefanie enjoyed the beautiful scenery among family and friends on this warm later summer afternoon. From the lovely outdoor ceremony to dancing in the courtyard under the stars, their wedding was one to remember.

The only thing more unpredictable than the weather is love. Luckily for the Evans, their love was solid and apparent on an unseasonably stormy September day in Glen Allen. At one point during the ceremony, things got so windy that all the couple could do was take a moment and have a good laugh (along with their audience). Amidst the blowing leaves and occasional drizzle, Justin and Jessica had a lovely wedding in the beautiful Napa Valley. We have filmed at many wineries, but BR Cohn definitely stands out among the rest. The place is beautiful. We’re certain that the Evans’ love will remain consistent, despite life’s many unpredictable elements.

When we received an email about shooting a wedding we got pretty excited and let’s just say the Behne’s celebration did not disappoint. Eric’s dad was a collector of vintage planes and his family’s Brentwood property has a private runway and hangar that provided the setting for Eric and Janal’s late August wedding. There was something extra special about filming a wedding that had so many personal mementos and memories for the couple and their guests. Also, I’m pretty sure this is the only wedding we will ever shoot where the bride and groom enter their reception on an airplane. How can you beat that?
