Mike + Christine at the Mission Inn

Every year, it seems like more and more old friends are getting married and there is nothing more enjoyable than to have the opportunity to film those weddings. My friendship with Mike dates back to the fraternity days where it began as simply a Warden/AM experience (Sorry, Pi Kappa Phi Reference). For the rest reading this, let's just say that I was a "Pledge" and he was in charge of the "Pledges". Enough said.

Of all the people I met along my path through fraternity, I do have to say that Mike is without a doubt one guy that I have always had the utmost respect for. Truly a stand-up individual with all the qualities of a great man, and I was humbled that he would ask us to film his wedding.

As several years have passed since the good ol' days, Mike is still the same great guy and thus it is clear why he ended up with Christine. They are truly deserving of one another and it is clear they "dig" each other. I found this song by Incubus to be perfect for their trailer, as it is not only a song they chose, but one that is very reflective of relationships in general. . . . and to be honest, it's just fun to edit to. :-)

Randy + Michelle // Finding Forever

This summer was the wedding season with a little flavor. . . . as we had so much fun experiencing new venues and hidden gems. The Kyoto Grand is no exception.

Located in Downtown LA, perhaps it simply gets lost among the skyscrapers, but make no mistake, this is a beautiful and unique venue for a wedding, and it was perfect for Randy + Michelle.

Nestled into the rooftop garden, the two were married in the most intimate of ceremonies, and we must say that Michelle was simply stunning in her dress. There was so much great footage to choose from for this trailer, but we didn't want to spoil the final film for the newlyweds, so we had to keep it short, sweet, and simple.

Here it is, Randy + Michelle.
