As far as wedding venues go, it’s hard to beat The Holly Farm. It’s a little gem hidden in Carmel. However, the only prettier than the venue itself is the couple-Earl and Debby Mah. The Mah’s wedding will go down as definitely one of our favorite weddings of the year and perhaps among our favorites ever. We wish every wedding could be like this.

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.

Stacey and Kevan are pretty much the best. Their celebration combined so many things that we love about weddings: working with clients who work in the wedding industry (Stacey works with A Grande Affair), traveling for weddings (Paso Robles is beautiful), and there’s nothing better than capturing the story of two people who are genuinely in love. We would go back and relive their wedding day we would, but since we can’t we will just have to keep watching their film.

Lachlan and Lyndsey are the epitome of an international couple. Lyndsey (an American) and Lachlan (an Australian) met in Hong Kong, where they currently live and work. Their love story has all the makings of a movie. Their ceremony, held at Kunde Winery’s Boot Hill, is among the prettiest we have ever filmed. The picturesque panorama of the Sonoma valley provided the perfect backdrop for the couple’s elegant nuptials. The reception was gorgeous and we can’t get over the details of the day.

As far as wedding locations go, it’s hard to beat Napa’s Triple S Ranch. Ryan and Madeline’s September 17 wedding was about as pretty as it gets. From the wedding prep in the ranch’s elegantly rustic lodges to the intimate foresty first look, the Steel’s celebration was among our favorites from the summer.

If you are looking to add a little something extra to your wedding, you should probably have a bagpipe player escort you down the aisle during your recessional. That’s exactly what Kyle and Alyse did and it was amazing. The Patersons elegant ceremony, on September 10 at Diablo Country Club, was a beautiful mix late summer beauty and celebration among family and friends. Also, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention Diamond Dave. That DJ is a legend.

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.
