ROGER + SHANNON // NEW YORK ELOPEMENT
When you have a couple down to do anything, and all of New York as your playground- magic happens. We had an entire day from literally before sunrise to sunset to document this sweet couple's special day, and what we were able to capture only confirmed our belief that elopements can be just as romantic, beautiful, and sentimental as a wedding!
PARK HYATT AVIARA // CARLSBAD, CA WEDDING
You could almost say it was sweetly prophetic that Alonzo met Nicole. Alonzo's mother, thinking she was going to deliver a girl when pregnant with Alonzo, had the name "Nicole" picked out! Little did she know that after she decided to name her son after his father, she would still indeed gain a daughter named Nicole years down the road.
DARLINGTON HOUSE // LA JOLLA, CA WEDDING
Joe was one of Jason’s former roommates and a groomsman in our wedding! We feel like everyone needs a friend like Joe. He is the life of every party, has untouchable charisma, and charges the room with an uplifting and positive energy. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect counterpart for Joe than Michelle's gentle and sweet personality. Joe calls her "Belle," and it isn't hard to see why. She was one of the most naturally gorgeous brides we have ever seen! We were both touched to be so included on their big day.
FAIRMONT GRAND DEL MAR // SAN DIEGO, CA WEDDING
Walking into the Grand Del Mar ballroom reception adorned in blush, shimmering golds, and hanging crystals was like walking into another world. Such a lavish setting was only appropriate for a couple who fell in love the first day they met as teenagers.
ETHEREAL OPEN AIR RESORT // ESCONDIDO, CA WEDDING
Before the flowers, veil, lace, and stunning rustic beauty of Saturday's wedding, there were gym shorts, long practices, and weight rooms. Six years ago, these star-crossed lovers met while playing basketball in college. What started as a sporty college camaraderie, turned into a lasting relationship and professional partnership.
LOS ANGELES RIVER CENTER & GARDENS // CA WEDDING
Carlos and Christina consider themselves "lucky in love" and it's no wonder since the bride's favorite color is green, her engagement ring is green, and they tied the knot in an amazingly gorgeous garden setting!
AARON + ANNA // LEO CARRILLO RANCH // CARLSBAD, CA WEDDING
Filming their wedding day was like the funnest emotional roller coaster! They wrote easily some of the most touching vows we have ever heard, bringing us to tears in one moment, and making us crack up in the next with their ceaseless sense of humor.
ESTANCIA // LA JOLLA, CA WEDDING
The best tears are happy tears. That being said, the best of the best could quite possibly be the tears in the eyes of a groom when he sees his bride walking down the aisle, or the tears of a proud father as he recounts a lifetime of memories of his daughter.
THE MISSION INN HOTEL AND SPA // RIVERSIDE, CA WEDDING
Misha and Julian's wedding was truly a destination wedding in our backyard. The Mission Inn in Riverside provided a jaw dropping visual landscape for this beautiful couple's special day. Few wedding venues have inspired such epic elegance and romance. Did we just step into another world? Europe perhaps? Everywhere we turned, it was the perfect backdrop to capture their love story, especially the amazing spiral rotunda staircase! There were so many moments that took our breath away.

FAIRMONT GRAND DEL MAR // SAN DIEGO, CA WEDDING

MIKAEL + JASMINE // WAILUA RIVER // KAUAI WEDDING
It was such a blast to film Jasmine and Mikael's big day in beautiful Kauai! We just love that their niece and nephew are such a big part of their lives and their love story! Don't watch without tissues!
