Oceano Hotel Wedding Video

“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.

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.


You know those weddings that you see in the movies? The ones where the bride dresses like a princess, wears glass slippers, and arrives at her ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage? You know those fairytale movies where the couple gets married on the cliffs overlooking the ocean? Turns out, this happens in real life as well. On October 4, David and Sandy made their love official in front of friends and family at the beautiful Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay. It was a day steeped in tradition and rich in love. It was also pretty dang pretty.
