Thi and Erich's big day was everything we love about wedding celebrations. It had it all, an amazing couple, a beautiful natural setting, a big group of fantastic people and a whole lot of love. If that wasn't enough, their vows were some of the best we have ever heard and Thi's Dad gave an unforgettably touching toast. This day was perfection!
We're Ric & Rose, of Grover Films. Based in the center of the San Francisco Bay Area & the Monterey Bay Area, in Santa Cruz, the two of us specialize in artistically filmed & edited cinematic wedding films. We do our best to do more than just document each wedding; for every couple we create a unique piece of art to tell their story. We LOVE destination weddings, and out door weddings in places like Napa California and Nestldown in the Los Gatos Mountains.

We had the pleasure of being a part of this wedding from its infancy. Laurel contacted us before choosing anything else for her wedding! When we asked what inspired her, she said "I wand everything vintage, rustic, old-world, with lace and elegant simple florals". We quickly put her in touch with Danielle from Danielle Gillett Photography and APIS Florals and suggested she check out Nestldown. Well it was love at first sight and our amazing little team was born.
Laurel and Matthew's wedding was truly gorgeous and it was such a pleasure to work along side such talented vendors to create something so unique and beautiful. If, like us, you just can't get enough of this darling couple then be sure to check out some of Danielle's stunning photographs below.
We are so honored to have been a part of this beautiful celebration of love and family. As Rabbi Jim Ponet so eloquently said, "Laura and Kyle created a new world on this day," a future together that will clearly be cherished. Their love for each other and all of the people in their lives was evident in every glance and each interaction. It was a day rich with tradition, full of laughter and brimming with joy.
Arista Winery was gorgeous with its old oak trees, rolling hills and picturesque views. It has all the elements that make me love filming weddings. The light sprinkle of raindrops that came through for a couple of minutes, cooling down the warm afternoon, brought with it a spectacular sunset.
The day was lovely in every way and we are so happy we could take part in capturing it. Working alongside Susannah and Greg from Susannah Gill Photographic Storytelling, Heather from Holiday Weddings and Alex from AMS Entertainment made this breathtaking wedding a joy to be a part of. Laura and Kyle could not have selected a better group to bring their wedding together. You can find the rest of this dream team below.

There are a few things that just make me giddy when it comes to filming weddings and vineyards at sunset are one of them. I adore Fogarty, especially its views and the light. I really love the light. And the color palette Lexie chose was just lovely in this sunny and bright setting. Lexie and Jose are such a sweet couple, and they really incorporated so much of themselves into their day. They also brought together a really fun team to create this lovely celebration. Ric and I had so much fun working along side Rachel form Rachel Blackwell photography and Patty from Thomas Fogarty Winery. We are so happy to see this lovely day published on the Knot Today!
You know that color palette and light I mentioned. Just for fun, here are a few screen shots from our film, so you can see at a glance what I'm talking about. Enjoy!

Details, details, details! I have never seen more lovely little details than I did at Shannon and Daniel's stunning Nestldown wedding. Around every corner, in every nook and cranny, I found something lovingly crafted, hand made and gorgeously arranged. Bloomster's Florals were out of this world gorgeous!! Nestldown is an absolutely stunning venue, it is one of our all-time-favorite places to shoot! On top of everything we love about this gorgeous venue's natural beauty, Shannon and Daniel's wedding had countless personal touches. It was just perfect: full of romance, tears of joy, and warm and loving people. Check out the images below to see a few of the day's details and precious moments captured on film.
