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.

Andy and Betsy’s combined everything we love about a wedding: a beautiful setting (you can’t beat Monterey), fun vendors, a hilarious emcee, a crowded dance floor, and a couple that is madly in love with each other. Andy and Betsy were smiling from sunrise until sunset and they went out of their way to make us feel at home. The Nicklaus Club is among our favorite places to film and the A’Neals are easily among our favorite couples we have worked with. March 26 was the best.

It’s not often that we get to spend an entire 48 hours with a couple, but Corbin and Courtney’s wedding featured more love and fun than one could possibly pack into 24 hours. The weekend began with a cruise around the San Francisco Bay and ended in the heart of the city itself at the Fairmont Hotel. Corbin, a professional football player, and Courtney, a business owner and former professional soccer player, are some of the nicest people (let alone couples) we have ever met. From the Grace Cathedral to the Fairmont Hotel, the Louks’ wedding featured some of the most beautiful buildings (and people) the city has to offer. Honestly, we could have easily spent another 48 hours following Corbin and Courtney, but at a certain point I think it becomes stalking. And while there is a fine line between stalker and friend, we look forward to hanging out with Corbin and Courtney again soon. In the meantime, you’ll have to excuse us while we relive those incredible 48 hours through this video.

Valhalla Tahoe Wedding


I get to film a lot of weddings, but I think this one will continue to stick with me a for a while. Zack and Monica’s Lake Tahoe wedding was a giant party. Not only was the couple’s love evident, but there was an atmosphere of love and joy in the air among all of the family and guests. I actually went to high school with Monica so it was fun to reconnect with her and some old friends during the weekend’s festivities. Zack and Monica are hilarious, passionate people and I hope they get the chance to snowboard and wakeboard with their grandkids one day. They’re the best. We love them.

Eight years ago, this lovely couple got married and started their amazing family. Now a family of 6, the couple decided to renew their vows in an intimate ceremony among friends and family at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, CA. Most couples wait many years to renew their vows, but there was something special about the freshness of the couple’s ceremony and their love that was so evident. The ceremony The March vow renewal was followed by a beautiful dinner reception at Postino restaurant in Lafayette. Hopefully they do something like this every 8 years so we can be a part of it!

Thomas and Addie were married in beautiful Monterey, in late September. Thomas, a police officer, shared his handwritten vows with lovely Addie in a beautiful Monterey courtyard. The couple was treated to one of the funniest best man speeches we’ve heard in a long time and they were fortunate to spend the day getting ready and celebrating at the beautiful Pasadera Country Club. This wedding video is one of our favorites from this season. Thomas and Addie are the best!

If you were to Google Todd Hamilton, you would likely find his tech blog, info about the iWatch and various musings about world of technology and the internet. Having spent the day with Todd and his wife Rosie, we can attest that there is much more to him (and the couple) than a simple Google search can drum up. Rosie and Todd’s wedding featured one of the most beautiful wedding and reception site we filmed this season. Their family and friends enjoyed a beautiful day in the Napa Valley and danced the night away with the best wedding band we’ve ever seen/heard (no joke). From the lovely first look at a vintage Napa home to the ceremony, dinner, and evening party, the Hamilton’s wedding was among our favorites.

Ford Wedding Movie


It’s difficult to imagine a more beautiful setting than the one Eric and Meghan chose for their June wedding. Surrounded by close friends and family, the couple was married by their longtime youth pastor. Needless to say, the property was the perfect landscape for sweeping aerial shots and copious amounts of ice cream. It was pretty much the perfect day.

McNally Wedding Movie


This wedding was a dream to shoot, for a number of reasons. Not only did Aaron and Lynsie (who are fantastic people, by the way) get married in the beautiful Carmel Valley, I was finally able to incorporate the Oakland A’s (the couple’s, and my, favorite baseball team) into a wedding video. The McNallys were married at the Carmel Valley Ranch on June 21 in front of an intimate group of their family and friends. The couple met while working at Starbucks, which is fitting because their wedding was cozier than a vanilla latte and sweeter than a mocha frappuccino.
