Tina + Lucas ~ The Best Man

One of the many signs of a great relationship is change for the better. When a couple can support one another and help to shape each other into the people they long to be over the course of a lifetime, that is true love.

Lucas and Tina are clearly in a great relationship. Lucas' best man gave a toast that was short and simple, but we think it is the best toast we have heard in a long time. Filled with nothing but heart felt words of honesty and emotion, it was truly an honor to have the opportunity to share it through their trailer.

While clever phrases and well timed punch lines seem to dominate the reception mic, sometimes simplicity is best.

We posted Tina + Lucas' Same Day Edit, if you missed it, check it out here. So for their trailer, we didn't want to give away too much good stuff, so in the spirit of the post, we kept it simple :-)

A very special thank you and shout out to Joe Broccardo from Broccardo Photography. Not only can he create amazing imagery, he's handy with a needle. Thimble not included. See for yourself. . .

Brian + Kimberly // The North Chapel + A Navy Wedding

One of the most rewarding and challenging parts of our business is the ability to provide the ultimate keepsake of a day filled with so much emotion and tradition. This wedding was even more challenging in that Brian is in the Navy and was deployed off to Afghanistan shortly after the big day, so it goes without saying that a lot of trust was placed in us by Kimberly to document their wedding. . . . no pressure, right???

. . . . The two were married in the North Chapel at Liberty Station Marketplace. Built in 1942 by the United States Navy as a place of worship for thousands of recruits and serviceman, it was a beautiful site for a military wedding to take place.

So here it is, Brian + Kimberly!

Enjoy :-)

Nikki + Chris // Best Friends

What is it about Bagpipes? There is nothing better than watching a bride, or in this case, the groomsmen walk into the ceremony with nothing playing but a bagpipe. It simply resonates and gives me chills when I hear it. So it had to be included in Nikki + Chris' trailer.

Married at the beautiful Coto De Caza Gold and Racquet Club, Nikki + Chris celebrated in style all night long. It was only fitting that they should choose a classic Queen song, as it is clear they truly are best friends.
