Set at the most beautiful and luxurious hotel in Santa Barbara, Ninve and Tim opted to have a destination beach wedding for their shared nuptials at the oceanfront Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel. Every guest except her sister flew or drove in from out of town.

No detail was left untouched and Ninve’s Assyrian culture was especially important and can be seen during their high energy Grand Entrance Assyrian dancing with handkerchiefs held high in the air by their guests. Tim was especially dance happy and it was cute to see him assimilate so well into the tradition that Ninve grew up with.

Ninve and Tim decided to go the traditional route and did not see each other until the garden beachfront ceremony. And what a priceless wait! The smile on both of their faces after seeing each other just said it all! From then on and throughout the evening, it was their sweet gazing smiles that were completely infectious and a delight to film!

Now here’s a couple truly in love and surrounded by special loving family and friends who gave touching and funny toasts. Just look at this happy bride adoring her groom. Ninve and Tim reside in New York together and I wish them the very best of married life! Congratulations to you both!

Sarah and Daniel’s Short Form Wedding Film – Skirball Cultural Center

Sarah is from California and Daniel is from Europe. They have truly proven how to overcome the “obstacles of long distance, time zones and language” says their Maid of Honor in her poignant toast to the couple. “Sarah and Daniel have made every decision together and they are truly an us”

It’s all about timing and planning to them. They both met in Israel while volunteering on ambulances for the Israeli Red Cross and it there that their love started to blossom and grow for several years. Finally, Daniel moved to the states to start their lives together.

Set in the midst of the beautiful modern architecture of the Skirball Cultural Center, this intelligent classy couple tied the knot under the huppah during their traditional Jewish ceremony. Later at the reception, the dancing was blended with traditional and contemporary songs, the toasts from family and friends were exceptionally moving and telling of how much they all love each other as two families were blended into “us,” and then the father-of-the-bride gave a special surprise performance on his saxophone for his daughter and new son-in-law!

I wish them all the best as they continue their lives together in New York and succeed in their pursuits of the medical field.

Preeti and Rakesh’s Wedding Film

Yes, that’s right… our bride’s name is Preeti – pronounced “pretty” (or Preetee for the more traditional pronunciation that I’d hear her family call her) and for all practical purposes throughout her life – what a “beautiful” name! Preeti, Bella, Pretty, Beautiful – she’s our kind of bride!

Preeti and Rakesh wanted a Wedding Feature Film ONLY – specifically blended of their traditional Indian wedding day with a progressive perspective through the spoken word of their family’s and friends’ toasts. Even with over 16 toasts throughout their wedding reception, they did not want the longer Documentary version that we usually offer with our packages. However, Preeti knew exactly which toasts she wanted used for the narration of their film (without taking any notes on the day of) and it was so easy and creative to work with! The speeches were amazingly touching… from the story about Preeti being a miracle child to the loving honor of her father’s memory and to Rakesh’s sweet personality and disposition – this was indeed a very special day that we were proudly able to reflect in a wedding film that is uniquely their own!

Sarah and Glenn’s Wedding Film – “Good things certainly do come to those that wait”

Sarah and Glenn are a soft-spoken and distinctly classy couple that met in the most unique way ever with the help of their families. We edited their Wedding Film with a special touch that reflects the pace and tenderness of how they met and so assuredly fell in love. So sweetly, so patiently they waited for one another, so gentle their hearts (yet like an “earthquake”)…  we knew their personal speeches to one another along with their family’s and friend’s toasts would truly carry their hearts’ intentions in this warmhearted film.

Dani and  Nick’s Coming Soon Trailer

I am pleased to showcase our first “Coming Soon” wedding trailer!

Dani and Nick experienced an amazing wedding day that combined both Greek and Jewish traditions. Wait until you see all of the dancing at their reception! Their love and devotion to each other was so easily evident throughout the entire day. Nick was so fun and especially attentive to Dani’s every need, he was such a gentleman. And Dani was so playful and funny all day long, I knew she was ultra-cool when I saw her giving her bridesmaids high fives and slapping their behinds. I just loved their energy and fun-spirits!

Can’t wait to showcase their Wedding Film… stay tuned!
