Nina + Jerimiah – Pechanga Wedding

Happy New Year! We are excited to share Nina and Jerimiah’s Pechanga wedding today! They got married under a beautiful sacred oak tree and it was gorgeous. They got ready and had their reception at the casino. The getting ready was so fun, the girls were laughing the whole time and the little flower girls were the cutest things ever. The guys braided their hair and were having lots of fun themselves. These two were just full of giggles all day. Their first look was adorable and I think they just felt so much better once they had their first look and got to be together.

After some photos, we all went to the ceremony. The oak tree was gorgeous and it was such a sweet ceremony. The officiant did a traditional cleansing ceremony and Jerimiah’s vows were adorable. It’s always so neat to see different traditional ceremonies at weddings. They took more photos with the tree, with their friends and family and at some other fun areas around there.

The reception was back at the casino in one of the ballrooms. They had beautiful flowers, a delicious cake, and tons of fun things for the guests to do. The kids had a whole room dedicated to them with a huge jumpy house, bubbles, and coloring pages. The guests could enjoy a photobooth, cigar rolling and late night tacos and churros later in the evening. I loved the couples’ first dance, again the two of them just so giddy and happy together. The speeches were so sweet as well.

We hope you enjoy this Pechanga wedding!!

Erica + Ash – Lake Oak Meadows Wedding

Oh wow, what a romantic, sweet and hilarious wedding to be a part of. These two are so adorable and funny! And the addition of their baby throughout the day just made the day even sweeter. Lake Oak Meadows Wedding venue is really beautiful and such a great place to get married. They got ready with all their friends and family and it was so funny because Ash forgot his shirt but Erica called her neighbor and was able to get it in time for the ceremony. The guys all wore Marvel shirts under their wedding shirts, even their little boy! Erica and her sisters had some really sweet moments during that time as well.

The first look was cute. First Erica saw her dad, who was so adorable!!! Then the best man pretended to be Erica for the actual first look. It was pretty funny. Then the two finally got to see each other for an emotional first look and gift exchange. The ceremony was beautiful with great words from Ash’s brother and amazing vows to one another. The best thing was when the vows were interrupted by their son playing with tractors on the ground in front of them. Such a picture of parenthood!!

The reception was so beautiful with unique centerpieces on each table, cool flowers, an amazing dessert spread and a really neat gift from the father of the bride. He actually made the head table by hand and included in his speech great advice about making sure their family is around that table often. It was really cool. Erica and Ash are both into crossfit and their cake topper was so cute lifting weights! Their crossfit friends all did some pushups and everyone enjoyed cigar rolling, a photobooth, gelato, and tons of dancing!

We hope you enjoy!

Talin + John – Trump Golf Course Wedding

Wowza! This venue has the absolute best views! Talin and John had a Trump golf course wedding over the summer and once we saw the ceremony site we could tell why they liked it so much. First they got ready at a nearby hotel before they headed over to Trump golf course. The little girls were so cute getting ready and Talin and her mom had some sweet moments together as well. The bow on Talin’s dress was so pretty and John gave all his guys fun socks.

The guests took a nice walk down to the cliffs overlooking the ocean for the ceremony. The hexagonal archway was so pretty and the weather was just great. We loved the great things the officiant said and their personal vows were awesome as well. “As long as I’m with you, I’m home”, sooo sweet! It was also just really neat to see all their guests taking the long stroll to and from the ceremony, enjoying the weather.

After the ceremony, everyone took a second stroll back up to the main building. They enjoyed cocktail hour on the lawn out front and the beautiful couple got some really great photo time with the sun gong down. The reception hall was beautiful with the white flowers and gold and white cake. The reception was kicked off with the grand entrance and a choreographed dance. Then the band came out and it was super great. It was an 80’s cover band and they were just so much fun. I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty!

After all the events and dancing were over the couple had a grand exit through sparklers to cap off the night. It was such a beautiful day and such a fun night. I hope you enjoy!!

Chandra + Jack – Love Story

We had such a great time getting to know Chandra and Jack by filming their love story. It was debuted at their reception right before the grand entrance and it was so fun! I’ll be honest, I get a little nervous when a large group of people are about to watch our work, but there was so much cheering, it calmed my nerves. I am so glad everyone enjoyed it, but especially glad these two have something to enjoy for all time.

Congratulations you two!

Lauren + Barrett – Martin Johnson House

Lauren and Barrett started their day in the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado for their getting ready – and ended their day at the Martin Johnson House. There was a little excitement when we first arrived as the fire alarm went off several times! But once everyone realized it was a-ok, everyone got back to hanging out and getting ready. Lauren had such a unique and beautiful dress and we loved the head piece she wore! Barrett got ready with his guys and his son. It’s always pretty neat when we can include children in a couples’ wedding film. Once they were ready, we headed to the courtyard in the middle of the Hotel Del to do the first look. They were so cute, we absolutely loved their first look.

We all headed to the Martin Johnson house for their ceremony and reception. One of my favorite things about this venue is the beautiful cliff views and the hang gliders peacefully gliding through the air. The flowers and decor were gorgeous. I love the succulents and air plants interspersed with the fresh flowers and greenery. The ceremony was just lovely with some amazing words of advice from their officiant!

The two did some beautiful portraits on the edge of the cliff, a little too close for comfort for me, but I’m glad they did because the images are worth it! The guests enjoyed a beautiful spread for cocktail hour and the reception decor was just as beautiful as the ceremony! These two had just a beautiful wedding, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


We loved working with SidebySide Cinema. We are so glad that we chose them to capture all of the memories of our wedding. It was such a special moment to watch this back for the first time. Our wedding day went by so fast and it’s so wonderful to have this video to look back and remember the day. Danielle was extremely responsive and they were so easy to work with. It’s so important to hire a talented videographer for your wedding day and SidebySide Cinema will not disappoint you!

Noah Bar Mitzvah

We have worked with Noah’s family for years at their family and business events. We have enjoyed watching their family, especially their two youngest grow up! They are so sweet and their kids are so great as well. I even did a super fun video camp for the kids over the summer where they made a music video together!

Well Noah turned 13 as well this summer and had an amazing Bar Mitzvah celebration just like his brother did last year. Noah is in a band and so the theme was so fun. All the guests who arrived could notice the theme right away as they greeted bouncers at the door who grilled them before giving them their VIP pass, hand stamp, and “money” to spend at the merch table.

The decor was headphones and everything was red and blue. They had a wood fired pizza food truck and then a really fun food vendor that cooked food with blow torches! That was really clever and fun. PB&J and milk were tray passed too. When all the guests first arrived, they could get their hair spray painted or makeup done and they could play games with the DJ.

The most exciting part of the night was when Noah got up with his band and performed. The whole family even had a fun family performance, and then he also performed with the hired band as well. It was so fun and the crowd loved it! The rockstar theme was so on point throughout the whole night and all the kids and adults had so much fun.

We hope you enjoy!!
