Shaina & Michael

, ,

We loved the vibe of this wedding! Shaina & Michael were super fun to work with and put on a great event. Filming a wedding video at the San Diego Botanic Gardens is always a treat. We love all the bamboo, succulents and botanical delights. To top it off, a burger serving gastro food truck from Miho Catering really can’t be beat. Yum! If that weren’t enough… we got to work with a vendor dream team. She Wanders Photography are amazing and always overflowing with refreshing and surprising creative ideas. And Julia Bagunu, Event Coordinator with Creative Affairs is the best… always on top of everything and keeps the day moving along smoothly. Such a great day!

Sara & Hooman at The Rancho Bernardo Inn


Sara and Hooman’s wedding at The Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego brought all the beauty of their two vibrant Persian and Indian cultures together for one event. From the Indian Mehandi party the night before to the Persian wedding ceremony the next day and on into the lavish reception, we were never wanting for exciting and colorful events to film. Sara and Hooman were such a fun couple with so much history that it was very beautiful to see their genuine emotion and love during the gift exchange, vows and first look. We wish them all the best!

Roman & Irina’s Love Story


Roman & Irina’s heavy-weight domestic rivalry video was a knock out for the wedding guests when it was played before their grand entrance. Filming it was a welcome diversion from the usual love story fare and allowed for a lot of creativity with the boxing theme. Their wedding at the Manchester Grand Hyatt was as beautiful as it was fun. Russian – Ukrainian weddings are always a blast for us to shoot being grand events of infectious energy and enthusiasm, with an old-world charm and modern zest for life. Personally, I think we should stop tapping our glasses to get the couple to kiss, and instead adopt the Russian custom of everyone chanting “Gor’ko! Gor’ko! Gor’ko!” Anyway, we will post the hightights as soon as we can, and you can judge for yourself. Congratulations Roman & Irina! (see their wedding video highlights too!)

Highlights Video (26min.)

Lani & Paul’s wedding was pure joy to film. Between the wedding parties’ enthusiasm, the families’ tight connection and Lani and Paul’s great relationship there was never a dull moment in the video. I had the opportunity to film Lani’s sister Abby’s wedding two years before which made it fun to see a lot of the same people again. Abby did a fabulous job as wedding planner and kept everything running smoothly. Her Dr. Seuss toast is now my official all time favorite. Who knew? Paul and Lani had their ceremony at the Pacific Beach United Methodist Church and the reception at the Admiral Baker Clubhouse. David Champagne Photography did an awesome job and kept finding great light in unexpected places, which is always the challenge. You can view some of the photos from the wedding on David’s blog. Great wedding!
