Andrea and Andrew – Omni Rancho Las Palmas

These THREE had a wonderful wedding celebration in Palm Springs! Andrea and Andrew got married but postponed their wedding celebration a few times and in the meantime had a beautiful squishy baby boy. I love when people get to include their children into wedding ceremonies but it’s especially cute when it’s a baby! They also included their dog in the ceremony as well, so adorable!

The ceremony was beautiful with a gorgeous Palm Springs backdrop. I loved all the photo time they got with the mountains and just the beauty around. The reception was on a rooftop and it was so incredibly beautiful! The dog was with them for the grand entrance which was fun and then their baby joined in the first dance.

Everything was so beautiful and I loved all the candle light beauty. We hope you enjoy!!

Jessica + Casey – Loews Coronado Wedding

Jess and Casey started out their beautiful sunny southern CA wedding with some fun getting ready time with their wedding party and a super cute first look with the bridesmaids. Jess did a first look with her dad too and they did a celebratory shot. What a fun idea! I also love the detail of the wedding date inside the suit, such a nice touch! Jess and Casey did a first look as well in the beautiful hallway at Loews.

The ceremony was officiated by the groom’s sister in law and she did an awesome job. After the bayside ceremony, they took beautiful photos and enjoyed an awesome reception. The band did an incredible job and the dancing and photobooth were off the hook!

Hope you enjoy this awesome wedding day!

Bar Mitzvah – Viejas Arena

We had so much fun at this Bar Mitzvah! They hosted the event at the SDSU Viejas Arena. It was basketball themed. They started with cocktail hours (one for the kids and one for the adults), then headed right into events, grand entrance into the Hora and a ton of dancing. Later three of the Harlem Globetrotters showed up and did an awesome performance for everyone! It was soooo great! We’ve never gotten to see them so this was so exciting to film them. They pulled the birthday boy up to do some stunts as well, so so fun! The dancing at this party was off the hook! We hope you enjoy.

Lindsay + Taka – Japanese Friendship Gardens

We loved working with these two at the beautiful Japanese Friendship Gardens in San Diego, CA. There were some really fun things at this wedding that were definitely unique. They had a funny groom entrance with fun music that then cut right back to the soft sweet music for the rest of the processional. We put it on Instagram and it took off! You can see just that short video there, but you can also watch the full highlight here!

We also loved the 10,000 cranes speech during the ceremony and they gave everyone a chance to make their own at the reception. The couple had choreographed their first dance and they had tons of awesome dancing through the night! They also had cookie ice cream sandwiches for dessert, so awesome.

We hope you enjoy!

Arianna + Adam – Ethereal Wedding Venue

Arianna and Adam had the most beautiful wedding/vow renewal. They had planned to get married in 2020 and still did have a small ceremony with their closest friends and family. The big party was something that was still on their hearts to have so they postponed and then enjoyed this beautiful day! I love all the personal little details they chose like the door at the end of the ceremony, that was such a beautiful symbol of entering their new life together. At the reception, the groom’s best man wasn’t able to be there but the bride surprised him with getting an audio recording of his speech to play, so special! Everyone had an amazing time on the dance floor and it was just a fun celebration of love.

Megan and Aaron – Flower Fields wedding

Megan and Aaron had a beautiful wedding at St. Therese of Carmel followed by a super fun reception at the Carlsbad Flower Fields. It was a beautifully warm southern California day. I loved seeing Aaron’s face watching his bride come down the aisle and the little flower girls were adorable! The Flower Field venue is really fun, there’s a patio area for the cocktail hour with drinks and yummy snacks, and then the party and dancing was inside the barn. The band was so fun and kept the party going along with a delicious churro late night snack.

Hope you enjoy!

Merry Christmas 2022!!

We hope you all had a wonderful year! Enjoy our annual Christmas video 🙂

Read below for backstory if you’re new here.

We don’t share many personal videos, but once a year we do! Enjoy our FIFTEENTH annual Christmas card video! And if you’re new here, check out our old ones too! (p.s. we are aware we’re super dorks ok)

Check out our previous years!! 2021, 202020192018201720162015, 2014201320122012 bloopers, 20112011 bloopers201020092008 & 2007

And if you’re still reading, a little backstory: We got married November 2007 so by the time we got back from our honeymoon and moving and all the wedding/marriage things, we just didn’t even think about Christmas cards that first year. So in the 11th hour, literally on Christmas Eve, we thought of making that very first video. It took no time at all and it was just silly. Then we said to ourselves, “we should do this every year!” And then we did! They have clearly gotten more involved over the years but they are no more well planned. We always have a whole year to figure out an idea and every single time we wait until the last minute…So enjoy our silly little tradition!
