Amanda & Darren’s Pebble Beach Wedding Film

Richard GroverComment

Amanda and Darren's wedding was held at a beautiful private estate in Monterey, California, overlooking the bay. Their wedding had that perfect balance of fun and relaxation, while maintaining a seemingly effortless sense of elegance and beauty. Everyone got ready on the property. This made for a very relaxed and intimate morning full of laughter and touching moments. When the guests arrived at this stunning venue they were blown away by the view. After a very emotional ceremony, and touching speeches, they all danced into the night. 

 

"Wow!!! These are so beautiful! Totally beyond anything I could have imagined. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for being such a huge part of our day. 

Howwww am I supposed to get anything done? All I want to do is watch these videos. I want to hear my sister's voice and see myself dancing with my dad and listen to Lori pour blessings over us both. It is so amazing how moving this film is and how awesome to have the ceremony and speeches captured forever. Thank you so much for everything!"

Caitlin & Edwardo's Nestldown Wedding | Highlights FIlm

Richard GroverComment

Could these two be any more gorgeous together? Caitlin and Edwardo tied the knot at Nestldown in Los Gatos, one of our favorite venues to film. It was a stunning day with perfect weather.  These two found that perfect mix of enough time for photo and video to use the full grounds at Nestldown, while still having plenty of time with family and friends to party into the night. We just love how their genuine and heartfelt love comes through in this film. 

"We just watched our wedding video and we love it! We are so happy that you were able to capture the love we felt that day, transitions and the sensitive video work told the perfect story. We can't thank you enough, cheers!"

~ Caitlin and Eduardo

We had a wonderful time working alongside the photographers from Fist Full of Bolts. The partnership between photographers and videographers is a really important one.  Although we had never met these two, they were such a pleasure to film and collaborate with. It's this kind of teamwork that helps us all capture the authentic and real moments that make a wedding so meaningful. All of us had so much fun capturing the love between Caitlin and Edwardo, and all the special moments they shared with their family and friends.

Bridget and Brad's "Hurricane Bradget" Wedding at the Pelican Inn | Short FIlm

Richard GroverComment

As we head into a wet weekend, I thought I'd share Bridget and Brad's wedding film. A HUGE and unexpected storm blew in on their wedding day and changed all their plans, but that didn't stop these two from having an amazing wedding!  "Hurricane Bradget", as we all lovingly came to call it, was a torrential storm. It lightened up just enough (and these two were brave enough) to do their first sight outside! We even got to walk around the property a bit for some photo and video time in the rain! 


"WE LOVE It!!!!!!!! The ceremony is wonderful and the highlights film is just spectacular! Thank you for capturing our memories and making them beautiful!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!! "

~ Brad and Bridget



"Thank you guys so much! You were amazing, and I could go on about how impressed we were to see you at work."

~ Brad & Bridget


This wedding is a perfect example of the importance of creative teamwork and the ability to be flexible in a way that comes with years of experience.  We loved filming Bradley and Bridget's wedding, even in these unexpected and challenging conditions. They are an incredible couple, super fun and game for anything we came up with. Their photographers, Susanna and Greg,  were a dream to work with.  They understood that what we are providing is more than films and photos. It's both the experience for our couples, and the way we capture their memories that matters. 

All images above are screen captures from Brad and Bridget's film, you can find the photos on Susanna's website, Susannah Gill Photographic Storytelling. Susanna and Greg are truly talented photographers, be sure to check out their work. You can find the rest of the talented vendors who made this day possible below.

Just Won The BAPVA Film Competition | Caitlin & Matt's Wedding at The Hideout in Tahoe

Award winning wedding videographer

We are so excited to announce that Caitlin and Matt's film won the Bay Area Professional Videographers Association film competition!!!  It's such an honor to have this group of talented cinematographers choose our film for first place. 


The Hide Out is one of those hidden gems that you dream about. But this is no dream, it's a stunning spot tucked away in the Sierra Nevadas outside of South Lake Tahoe. The property spans 40 acres of pristine high mountain terrain. It is a truly lovely spot, and on this wedding day it was filled with the most gorgeous warm mountain light. Simply put, it was the perfect backdrop for Caitlin and Matt's wedding!

When Caitlin and Matt emailed us about being a part of their wedding, we were over the moon about it. We filmed Matt's sister's wedding years ago and could not wait to be a part of another milestone in their amazing family's journey.

Caitlin's impeccable design sense came shining  through, when she chose a dress that incorporated the work of two different designers, Berta with a Monique Lhuillier skirt. The outcome was one of the most beautiful dresses we have seen in years. The way it fit her was perfect, and the way the light played through it was to die for!

We had such a fantastic time working with everyone at this wedding.  Caitlin, Matt, and their families and friends were so much fun, and the group of vendors brought together for this day were outstanding.  Heather and her team from All Set events were really fun to work with, and they made sure every part of this day came together perfectly.  Josh, from Josh Elliot Photography, was such a pleasure to work alongside all day. It's teamwork, like this group had, that makes it possible for us to create the films we do! We can't thank these guys and gals enough, you were all the best! To see the full list of this talented team, check out the vendor list below!
