Camille & Jordan's Carmel Wedding

Richard Grover


Our first wedding of 2019!

Camille and Jordan celebrated this new chapter of their lives on the seven year anniversary of the day they first met. They flew all the way from Texas, with family and friends, to get married in Carmel at the Church of the Wayfarer & Mission Ranch. It really was a perfect day for the two of them. Every location they choose as a part of this day was amazing. We had so much fun capturing the intimate moments they got caught up in, the beautiful chaos of family and friends coming together, and the love they shared for each other.

Kathryn & Henry’s Nestldown Wedding

Richard Grover


We just love Nestldown in the fall! On this day the persimmon orchard was stunning with its fall glow. Something that could only be matched by the love shared by these two.

Kathryn and Henry are as sweet as they come. It was such a pleasure creating this film for them. We love the way the speech Kathryn's mom gave and their vows helped weave together the story of their love. 

I absolutely love them!!! The highlight video is perfect! Thank you both so much for being a part of our magical day. This is such a perfect momento of that day and we’ll cherish it forever.

Chris & Sarah's Tehama Golf Club Wedding

Rose Sniatowski

With rain comes rainbows and Chris and Sarah got two! We just loved the dynamic look that the crazy and unexpected weather brought to this beautiful day. Chris and Sarah were up for anything, even a first sight in the rain! We enjoyed every minute:  the rain, the rainbows and the sherbet sunset that followed. 

Working in collaboration with Danielle, from Danielle Gillett Photography, is always so much fun! And with Sarah and Chris's thoughtful schedule we had plenty of time to capture artistic shots, intimate moments and some fantastic fun on the dance floor. 

That was the best video!!!!!!!! Chris and I are so happy! You caught everything and everyone and I just love it!

Award Winning Film Featured on Green Wedding Shoes ~ Betty & Jonathan's Sequoia Retreat Center Wedding

Richard Grover

Betty and Jonathan's film won first place at the 2017 BAPVA film competition! And was featured on Green Wedding Shoes today! 

Betty and Jonathan planned a wedding in the woods surrounded with their closest family and friends from across the country. They fell in love with the Sequoia Retreat Center's stunning redwood amphitheater, where they held their ceremony. And as we got to know them, we fell in love with the sweet romance between them and the relaxed way they embraced their wedding day. It was picture perfect in every way. 

For their film they wanted the forest setting and the beauty of the nature all around them to shine through. With the focus on the two of them, and their love, they were looking for a film that would flow in a way that would incorporate bits of their vows and loved ones' speeches. When it came to music, they gave us free rein, and we are so glad they did. What we found for them turned out to be a bit different, as you may have noticed. We listened to countless songs in choosing the perfect one for them. We wanted the song to fit them and their special day. We were over-the-moon when they loved the music we chose as much as we did! You can hear from them, in their own words, how they felt about us, and their film, below. 

Thank you both so much for capturing our special day. We couldn’t be more excited to see what you produce for us and we have no doubt that it will be amazing.

We both also appreciate how nice and personable you both are, which made us feel very comfortable around you. You both always had a big smile on and were in good spirits about being there, even when it got cold outside. We feel that you both went above and beyond our expectations, and we’re so grateful that we found you.

I have to give a special thanks to Rose for the pep talk she gave me before the first look, which definitely made me feel less nervous, and I know Betty was very appreciative of Rose’s help every time she needed to grab her dress on our field trip through the woods.
— Jonathan
Amazing! You captured the beauty and essence of our wedding perfectly. From the cinematography, to the creative editing and music choice. Just perfect. We are beyond happy.

This will be playing on loop on every device we own for a long, long time. Thank you so much. You are true artists with a wonderful gift.
— Jonathan
Hope you’re both doing so well! I know Jonathan already emailed you to say how much we love the highlights film... But I wanted to get in touch as well, to express my gratitude for your beautiful work!! The film seriously BLEW us away!!! It’s perfect … and btw, you also nailed it with the choice of music… it’s exactly our style :) Thank you SO much for all your hard work. It was such a pleasure to have you there on our big day, and you’ve provided us with a gem that will always remind us of those wonderful memories. THANK YOU!! You guys are the best!! <3
— Betty

We also have to mention the incredible team of vendors these two brought together to create and capture their wedding. Everyone was a dream to work with. Jakob from Nordica Photography has an impeccable eye for light and was a fantastic collaborator. He was up for anything, and shared our vision for capturing these two in the stunning setting they picked for their big day. Jessica from Art & Soul Events did a fantastic job coordinating this day! She is based in LA, but you would never know it, she seamlessly brought this outdoor forest wedding to life, like she had worked in the woods a million times. To check out the rest of their outstanding vendors, see the full list below.

Tierney & Mike’s Nestldown Wedding | Highlights Film

Richard Grover

Living in New York, Tierney and Mike wanted a destination wedding surrounded in all the natural beauty California has to offer. With all of their most beloved family and friends coming out from NJ they couldn't wait to spend the day and night with everyone. 

Nestldown is tucked in the mountains just outside of Silicon Valley, close to San Francisco, and it was perfect for their intimate fairy tale wedding. The outdoor ceremony space encircled by towering redwoods created an incredible spot to tie the knot. They held cocktail hour and dinner outside on the lawns bordered by one of the orchards and the lovely koi pond. Guests then gathered in the cozy barn to toast and dance into the night.
