Sonoma California Wedding Video - Bride and Groom in Field at Sunset
November 6, 2015

Wedding Video in Sonoma, California | Amy + Jeff

Where do I begin? This was by far the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to.  I have been to California multiple times, but never to wine country.  It is without a doubt some of the prettiest countryside I have ever laid eyes on.  Sonoma was just fantastic.  By the end of the first night, I was already picturing myself living there.  If given the opportunity, I could easily pick up and move my family there without hesitation.  It is that nice.  I would most likely only be able to afford a yurt though…

Amy and Jeff found me online and liked my work enough to fly me across the country to join them.  Every aspect of the day was perfectly planned and executed.  Major kudos to Jamie with A Savvy Event for keeping everything on track!  The wedding took place at an adorable little white church and the reception followed at the Sonoma Golf Club, just down the road.  Dinner was held outside, under a huge tree, and the rest of the night happened inside.  Unfortunately, you don’t get to see all the details from the inside reception in this video.  It was just too much to cram into 5 minutes!  I had the pleasure of working with Mike Larson and his wife, Rachel.  I saw Mike’s work years ago and was instantly attracted to it.  Getting to shoot side by side with him was an honor.  He is amazing at what he does. Book him. If he is booked already, book me! haha

To top it all off, we were given an amazing sunset, wherein the reds in the sky lasted for more than 10 minutes.  Their wedding day just so happened to be the last day of my 30th year.  The next day I would turn 31.  In my 30 years of life, this was the best sunset I have seen. What a way to end it!

I hope I was able to capture even just a glimpse of the beauty I experienced when I was out there.  Pictures and video still do not do the day justice!

Had so much fun with these two! As you will soon see... their whole group was an absolute blast to hang out with. After the ceremony we headed to 'The Shoe' for some shots and after that they took a little break at a long standing popular bar at OSU, the Varsity Club, to get a drink and have a few nice toasts. The reception at the Columbus Athenaeum was beautiful. The toasts were really moving on one hand, and hilarious on the other... thanks to Josh's brothers raking him over the coals. Looking forward to seeing what these two do in the future! Congratulations! Songs: The Album Leaf: 'The Light' itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-light/id18 ...

Country Music Hall of Fame Wedding Video | Nashville, TN | Katie + Kendall
This was my second time shooting a wedding in Nashville and it just so happened to be almost a carbon copy of the first time I filmed in the Music City.  The bride and groom got married in the same chapel and had their reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame, just like the first couple.   Let me talk a little bit about Katie and Kendall.  These two were amazing. I met them on Friday at the chapel for the rehearsal. I had yet to meet them in person and had only been in touch with them via email.  Katie was very sweet and made sure everything was okay with me getting in.  When I met Kendall, I knew within seconds that this guy was a good d ...

Kauai, Hawaii Wedding Video and Photography | Melissa + Sam
I was so excited when Melissa and Sam hired me to shoot their Hawaii Wedding.  For one, I had never been to Hawaii, it is the only state I had not been to. Yep, I have been to all the other states, including Alaska. Me and 5 other guys drove a Honda Odyssey from Ohio to Alaska and back in 5 days back in 2006, but that is another story.  Besides getting to finally go to Hawaii, I was getting to go to what I have heard to be the best of the islands, Kauai.  Besides going to Kauai and shooting the wedding, I was going to get to hang out with them for the whole week and join them on all sorts of fun activities. Our first day had us viewing the s ...
