We love the feeling of capturing a wedding and then being super excited to edit and tell a couple’s story. This is exactly how we felt working with the Brady’s. We actually beat our editing record, as the couple got married one week ago and we already wrapped up their wedding film! They got ready at their families homes, were married at a traditional Catholic ceremony at a beautiful Livermore church, and then hosted an amazing, flower-filled party at Casa Real. We can’t say enough about Jessica and Travis’ day so you should probably just go watch their wedding film now.

There’s nothing we love more than wine country in the Fall. The Danovich’s beautiful Casa Real wedding was fun for humans and dogs alike. Sam and Kasie are the sweetest and we couldn’t have been happier to help capture their beautiful wedding.

Katie knew what she wanted her wedding dress to look like, from as far back as she can remember. The dress, and everything else about her may wedding to Scott, was pulled straight from her childhood storybook. She played the role of princess and Scott, her prince. The Garvey wedding was filled with joy, from the first look to the couple’s sparkler exit. We couldn’t have asked for a better story to help tell.

When Kaiwan and Reena described their wedding to us, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. The blending of Persian and Indian customs and traditions provided the backdrop for a beautiful ceremony and an amazing overall day. The Chears are a fun loving couple and we really could have spent multiple days with them. They are the best.

They say you should always save the best for last and, considering the Herron’s celebration was our final wedding of the year, we definitely finished 2016 on a high note. Chris and Clarissa’s beautiful fall Casa Real wedding was the perfect way to complete our wedding season. We had an amazing time with the Herron’s and we couldn’t have picked a better couple for our 30th, and final, wedding of 2016.

We’ve been to a lot of weddings and we can honestly say that Billy and Laura’s dance party was among the best we have seen. Our first wedding of 2016 (1.22.16) set the bar pretty high. Laura, an event florist, and Billy, a debonaire gentlemen, threw a party that would make Gatsby proud. Here’s to hoping that the rest of 2016 is as beautiful and joyous as it began.

2015 was our busiest year as a company. We shot 25 weddings all over California, worked with a few bands we love, and created content for local companies that we dig. In short, we had a lot of fun. Thank you to all of the couples we got to know, vendors we got to work with, and people we met.

We have 21 weddings on the books for 2016 and we are anicipating our best year yet. Hope you all have a lovely new year.

There’s something special about filming the final wedding of a given season. Areta and Joe’s Casa Real wedding was the 25th wedding of our season and we went out on a high note. I love fall weddings and the Flores nuptials were no exception. The shot of the couple standing among the red, orange, and green vineyards is probably one of my favorite’s from the season. It has been a great year of weddings and the Flores’ beautiful November ceremony is near the top of the list.
