The Wedding Day

This fabulous wedding at the Omni Montelucia is everything classic and romantic as can be.
Nicole’s gown is breathtaking. The dress is head to toe lace, with just the slightest hint of beading to make it sparkle and shine in the sun. We particularly love the deep back of the dress that really shows off her silhouette.

Nicole’s florals were the perfect touch for the day. They are a soft as are mix of all white roses, gardenias, baby’s breath and greenery. With the amazing gold glitter of the décor accents and bridesmaids dresses, everything was stunning.

The Vows:

These two have a special love, and it is really shown in their vows to each other. Grad the tissues…

Trevor:

“Nicole I vow, I’ll love you as you are. Loving who you are now and who you are yet to become. I promise to listen to you and learn from you, to support you and to accept your support. Celebrate your triumphs and mourn your losses as if they were my own. I will love you and have faith in your love for me though all of our years and all that life may bring us.”

Nicole:

“Trevor, you are my best friend, my companion, my lover and my better half. I promise you my internal love, faithfulness, support, encouragement and companionship through life. I promise to celebrate your triumphs and to love you even more deeply when the times get tough. I promise to take care of you for today, tomorrow and eternity. I promise to kiss you every morning when we wake up and every night before we go to bed. I promise to be patient, kind, honest and forgiving. I promise to always keep our lives full of many adventures You are my person and I couldn’t be any more blessed or grateful.”

How They Met

The love between Ashley and Sean is very real and you can feel it when you are with them. They first met while working together. You can ask each of them separately and they will both say that as soon as they met, they knew immediately there was something special about one another. They have dated for several years, and early on, Ashley knew Sean was the one she was going to marry, possibly even before Sean knew. They share a love and compassion for one another that is undeniable.

The Proposal

Family is very important to both Sean and Ashley, So important, that Ashley made it clear that she wanted to have her family involved in the proposal. Since her family lives far away and are not are not around on a daily basis, this was not an easy task. Sean knocked it out of the park however! When he finally did get down on one knee, it was Christmas morning and also happened to be in front of her parents, her brother and Sean’s son.

The Wedding Day

These two love birds were married at the gorgeous El Chorro venue in October. Ashley’s dress is so perfect and unique. We love that it looks like it was covered in white flowers from head to toe, not to mention she looks stunning in it and looks like it was made just for her.

Its well known how much we LOVE the color pink, but we are really getting into this white trend right now. Ashley and Sean had all white floral and décor and it gives such a chic, clean and classic vibe. The bridesmaids were in black, which just makes the white pop even more.

When you hear from the bridal party, its overwhelming clear that this beautiful couple is surrounded by a huge network of friends and family that are so excited that they have found each other.

Dusty Rose Wedding At Desert Mountain | Videographer Phoenix

Neutral weddings are very in right now, and we are LOVING IT. Sarah + Scott’s wedding was right on trend with their cream, dusty rose and of course stunning gold color pallet. This color scheme has such a warm, soft and natural feel to it, its perfect for intimate weddings.

We adore Sarah’s dress. Its totally unique and perfect in every way for their wedding. The sash around her waist pulls in the dusty rose color, and the deep V neckline of the front of the gown is to die for, and the gold shoes are just the cherry on top.

The view of their Desert Mountain ceremony site is breathtaking. It is paired perfectly with the cream and blush tons in the floral bouquets.  Sarah and Scott’s reception is one for the books. Located at the Desert Mountain Outlaw Clubhouse, it was set up beautifully outside under the stars and surrounded by the ever popular bistro lights.

The best part about this wedding film (besides the couple of course) is that Sarah’s parents totally surprised the bride and groom and they had no idea this was even happening. How awesome is that? This beautiful couple met though a mutual friend in 11th grade, and have been together ever since. We think its incredible when a couple can be together for over a decade and still be head over heels for each other.

You can not only hear the love they have for each other in their vows, but also from their family. Sarah’s parents, Scott’s parents and the wedding party all speak so highly of them. Not only do they agree they are perfect for each other, but they also really seem to look up to and admire the relationship that Sarah and Scott have.

Navy and Blush Wedding JW Marriott Camelback Inn | Videographer Phoenix

Navy and Blush Wedding JW Marriott Camelback Inn | Videographer Phoenix

Blair and Timothy first met when they both worked at J Crew together. It wasn’t until later on, when they both had new jobs that they started dating.

Last August, Tim and Blair took a trip to Phoenix to visit some of Tim’s family. Blair’s parents (Don and Jennifer) joined them on the trip. They wanted to meet Tim and they have always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon, so it was the perfect time.

The first day of their trip went well and they ended the night Being exhausted. Most of that can be attributed to Tim’s outgoing and talkative personality that especially comes out when he is nervous. Poor Tim was so nervous because he was going to ask permission to marry Blair.

The next day, Blair and her mom went to get their nails done and Tim and Blair’s dad went to play golf. Tim was going to ask Don if he could marry his daughter. Tim was so nervous, he played the worst game of his life. Unfortunately, they played with two other gentlemen and there was not really a chance for him to ask for Blair’s hand. They went back to the hotel and just as Tim was building up the courage to ask, Blair called to let him know she and Mom were ready to be picked up. She had ruined Tim’s moment.

That night they all had dinner at Tim’s grandparents’ house. Tim went to pick up Blair’s parents from the hotel and in the car finally got his chance to ask permission to propose to Blair. Thankfully they said yes!

Here comes the best part. The following morning, they all went to the Grand Canyon. Just as Tim got down on one knee and he opened the ring box, the ring came flying out of the box and bounced toward the edge of the Grand Canyon. Tim’s heart practically stopped. Luckily, Tim reached out and about 6 inches from the edge of the canyon, stopped the ring from falling. Tim quickly put the ring back in the box and tapped Blair on the shoulder. He very quickly asked “Will you marry me?” For a man known for talking, this was one time he was short on words. Blair immediately said yes.

That whole day, Tim ran around telling everyone he could that Blair had said yes to him. Most people at the Grand Canyon were tourists, many from abroad, and spoke little to no English, so merely smiled at him as if he was a crazy man. Finally, Tim found a family that spoke English and the woman brought her whole family over to meet the happy couple. There were champagne toasts at lunch, lots of phone calls and texts to tell family and friends, and a wonderful day that neither Tim nor Blair will forget.

While Eric and Megan lived only a few blocks from one another in San Francisco, it took joining a popular dating app to get the two of them together.
For their first date, Eric recommended an amazing wine bar in North Beach called Dell’Uva, not having the slightest idea that the location was about 50 feet from Megan’s front door. Of course, she appreciated the convenience of all of this, and was smitten with the adorable guy who was waiting there to meet her.

Once they were dating, luck would have it that they started bumping into one another all the time They still can’t believe that they hadn’t met before, especially since Megan walked past Eric’s apartment twice a day on her way to and from work!

Hiking in Sedona led to the very sweet proposal. Since Sedona is such a beautiful setting, and they the outdoors they knew it would be the perfect location to get married.

This wedding was one of a kind. Cocktail hour had a lounge area and a corn hole set, so that guests could truly enjoy themselves. We also loved the unique guest book they had! Its not too often you have your guests sign a snowboard! Meanwhile the reception looked straight out of a fairytale. With beautiful twinkle lights strung across the candlelight tables, and bonfires to keep you warm. You would never want the night to end.

The story of the proposal is different depending on who you ask from this beautiful couple.

According to Kim:
The couple went to New England in July for a friend’s wedding. They decided to make a big trip of it because Rob had never been (it’s where Kim is from).

On July 25th, they went to Seabrook, NH. It’s the beach town that Kim grew up going to every single summer. It’s also a private beach so Rob couldn’t find any parking. He was insisting that they illegally park and leave the car on the side of the road. Kim refused out of fear of getting a ticket, or even worse towed! Finally, Rob stopped in front of a house that looked empty and insisted on getting out. Kim was so mad. When they walked down to the beach there were people EVERYWHERE. Rob then fumbled around in the camera bag before pulling out the ring box. He got down on one knee and asked Kim to marry him! She was so shocked she said, “Are you serious?” several times before saying yes.

According to Rob:
Rob grew up always going to the beach with his grandparents during the summer, just as Kim did.  He knew that we would be driving by the beach town she remembers as a child, Seabrook, NH. So he told her he wanted to stop and see ‘her’ beach!

Well, Rob didn’t know that this town did not have any public parking for beach access. So he lets just park for a minute and run down to the sand just to see it. Kim was not having it. She was worried the rental car with all of their stuff would get towed.

While Rob tried to get Kim down to the beach, the entire time he was thinking “Are you kidding me?! Just do what I ask for one second! If I have to, I will ask you to marry me from the beach on my cell phone! This was going to happen here!!!!”

Finally, Rob just pulled over in front of a seemingly empty house and said they were getting out of the car. Kim was not happy, but did agree, just for a minute

Rob fumbled with the camera bag, and got the ring out. Meanwhile Kim is looking confused Rob drops to one knee, in front of a city of people enjoying the ocean.

Cynthia + Nick Garden Wedding The Venue at the Grove - Videographer Phoenix

Garden Wedding The Venue at the Grove | Videographer Phoenix

 

This adorable couple Nick and Cynthia, met about 10 years ago in the High school marching band! Nick played snare on the drum-line and Cynthia was in color guard. They dated briefly back then but it just wasn’t the right timing. In February of 2013 they reconnected and have been inseparable ever since!

Cynthia had booked a trip to Northern California to visit Nick’s older brother and the vacation was actually a birthday surprise for Nick! She had bought the plane tickets and arranged the visit months before, and then surprised Nick at work a couple days before his birthday and took him straight to the airport!

On the day of the proposal, they planned on going to San Francisco to sight-see. The happy couple walked along the beach and wanted to get close to the Golden Gate Bridge for a photo. In typical San Fran like fashion, it was cold, windy and foggy. They walked as much as possible, so they could try and get a good view.  They got about as close as they could, and just as they were about to take a photo Nick got down on one knee!
We love the details that went into this wedding, from the gorgeous flower head wreath that Cynthia wore, to the perfect signs that led you down the aisle.

The Omni Montelucia Resort is one of the most beautiful properties to get married at in town. So many options for your Ceremony with all of them having a back drop of Camelback Mountain. Videographer Phoenix.

Montelucia Wedding

Montelucia Valencia Lawn

The Wedding 

Alex and Ryan chose the Valencia Lawn as their Ceremony site.The Valencia Lawn offers a beautiful wooden arbor that has become overgrown with greenery and its so natural and pretty. Behind that arbor is a picturesque view of Camelback Mountain. The arbor was the perfect match for her neutral color palette. Her bridesmaids wore neutral floor length gowns that complemented the gentleman’s grey suits. Ryan wore suspenders and a bow tie making him look so dapper and formal. At the beginning of the aisle she had giant wine barrels with floral on top of them. Her bridesmaids carried baby’s breath bouquets that added to the whole vintage chic feel to the wedding. Alex was in a lace halter bridal gown and as she made her way to Ryan she walked towards him down an hombre petal carpet of pink petals. Super gorgeous!! They chose to do a wine box instead of a unity candle during their Ceremony and I love that idea. It gives them something to cherish and look forward to opening as they celebrate their years of marriage. They also opted to have each of their guests sign a puzzle piece instead of a guest book. The sign read “Without you our puzzle isn’t complete. Please sign a piece.” I love this unique and personal touch that replaced the guest book.

Royal Palms wedding in the Alegria garden is absolutely dreamy. The rain kept this couple out of the Alegria Garden for their nuptials but they didn’t let that ruin their wedding day.

The Wedding

It was time for Plan B. Plan B was so gorgeous though that you never would have known that it wasn’t Plan A!! They wed under a covered patio overlooking a reflection pond. The Ceremony had candelabras and a wooden cross adorned in greenery and ivory floral. Their reception was draped with deep, rich, shades of merlot and more candles that created a romantic ambience for an incredible celebration of their commitment to one another. From the gold Chavari chairs to what looked like hand drawn floral escort cards to a gorgeous 3 tiered cake decorated with the same merlot floral motif that carried throughout the event there was no detail that wasn’t carefully planned or designed by this discerning bride and it was all perfection.

Royal Palms Wedding

The Bride and Groom

The bride to be wore a lace gown that had intricate beading and sleeves. While conservative in nature it was eye catching and stunned. Her accessories and floral hair piece along with her veil was the perfect complement to this stunning gown. The groom wore a classic black tux and bow tie. As she made her way down the aisle to her groom he wiped a tear from his eye. So moved my his gorgeous bride to be.
