These two worked so hard for this day. They both graduated college the same say (2 weeks before the wedding) all while raising their 2 year old son. Preston now works as a police officer and Daniela as a nurse. They have so much love and gratefulness for everything beautiful in their lives.

These two have been in love for a lifetime and were married in the gorgeous light filled vineyards at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez. They were praised by family and friends for them always making time for the ones they love and it shows. Her dress is dripping with stunning beading work and I couldn't stop photographing it. (I could seriously make a 10min film just about the dress, lol)
Jessica and Adam are the most badass rock and roll bride and groom I have ever had the pleasure to work with. They were married on a summer day in 2017 at the Casino San Clemente in SoCal. Jessica is my favorite off beat bride, totally fun and completely unapologetic for the awesome woman she is.

These two people are so inspiring to me. They are both working so hard in medical school and the love that they have for each other and their families is incredible. They had a beautiful blend of American and Indian wedding traditions in their wedding at the Alexandra Ballroom in DTLA. Devan also showed off his awesome guitar skills and performed a sing along to Oasis's 'Wonderwall" that got everyone singing. I cried happy years every time I was working on this film.

Anna and Ted were married on a fall day in the grand space of Vibiana in DTLA. They each had so much love and support from so many friends and family, some of who traveled from half way around the world to be there. Anna incorporated her Persian roots into the ceremony as well, it was so much fun to witness her family tradition of Raghseh Chagoo, or the cake knife dance. Ted had to bring cash to the wedding party who "stole" the cake knife and try to appease them to give it back so he could cut the cake! His American friends got in on the cake knife dance too and took to it like pros. With a live band there was so much impressive dancing from family members young and old and women dressed in stunning gowns. Anna and Ted were so down to earth and I feel so lucky to have been there. I am so o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d with Anna's dress! The incredible thing is, it was the second dress she chose because the first one was not ready in time! Thank you again for letting me film your wedding and I'm sending so much love to you both.

I met Joyce while studying calligraphy (she did all the invites and place cards you'll see in the film) She is so poised, elegant and calm. Randal is the perfect silly companion for her. Their wedding was in the knock out location of Malibu Rocky Oaks (a location that you'll also see in the famous Hangover films!) The sunset was perfect, their cute dog "ring bearer" was perfect, their dancing was perfect! This was the first wedding that I got to use some drone photography in too and it was sooooooo worth it!
I would describe this wedding as the perfect example of California Classic. The sweetest couple, subtle classy details (with a hint of art deco) under the lush greens and bold colors that only the LA River Center and Gardens can provide. These two dated for years, moved all across the country, and now have found a true calling in each other.

I'm obsessed with boho style (we had our own wedding in Joshua Tree) So when I got to work with Sarah and Joey at their 1909 Topanga Canyon hideaway I was thrilled. Sarah dress from Grace Loves Lace was perfect for her. Her hubby Joey is a professional DJ and although he was pretty shy for us, I am super proud we snuck in a few smiles and candid moments from the groom. It was a stunning October wedding designed by Tasteful Tatters and one that I could shoot again and again.
Lisa and Rodrigo met in the same city in Spain that Lisa's parents met in years ago. Their wedding was a stunning event at the LA River Center where they really paid homage and love to their many friends and family who traveled from across seas to be there with them. I had so much fun filming these two because they were so laid back and really seemed to be in the moment and appreciate the best part of any wedding day, coming together with the people they love.

I had the honor and privilege of filming the wedding of Destinee and Brandon. These two are such poets with their vows and have the biggest hearts. Her family is Nigerian and their formal clothes were so beautiful. Everyone danced so much and it was at a new favorite venue of mine in Long Beach, CA called The Loft on Pine
Pop The Champagne was the wedding coordinator for the days events (who also happens to be some of my most favorite coordinators to work with!)

JD and Eric were married in Palm Springs, California. They are two incredible cinephiles with the biggest hearts (and most amazing sense of humor) The song that closed out their ceremony was the theme from Golden Girls, which of course is the last song of the film. They were sure to include their fur baby Bosley into the festivities too! I'm so grateful to be alive at a time where we can see Love conquer hate. #LoveisLove
They are also incredible writers. Here's a short excerpt from the wonderful review they left us...." When Aristotle wrote, “pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work,” there was no way for him to know the work of Candice, Rob, and Spin the Dial Productions, but the joy they have in their profession radiates from our perfect wedding video. In quantum physics, the Observer Effect describes how the act of even looking at something changes it and influences the outcome. If this theory is true, then somehow Robert existed in a parallel universe, inexplicably filming our event invisibly, even though the footage shows that he was front and center the entire time. I have no clue how he achieved this. Not once did we think about the logistics of the filming during our wedding, we were confident that it was being taken care of in the competent hands of Robert. We were not wrong.
After the dust settled, Robert and Candice met with us again, and checked in with us and asked us questions to ascertain what elements that they captured for us were the most important so they could prioritize and organize our project. Then, over the next few weeks they sent us rough cuts to get our feedback. My husband and I met at a film festival and both come from the entertainment industry, so we were probably more difficult and persnickety than their other clients. Candice and Robert treated us with continued kindness and professionalism. After our requests for edits, we received an amazing final product that reflected the tone and tenor of our wedding. It encapsulated the love and joy of our day. Our family and wedding party have fallen in love with Candice and Robert through this video as well. The praise we have received for it has really shown us that a wedding video can be more than just a simple document of an important day in a family’s life. " - Eric + JD
Sasha and Jason were among some of our first couples and their wedding day filled with epic dancing to Journey and Sasha's love for Keanu Reeves continues to inspire us all these years later. They are both professional actors and are professionally amazing people. So much love, big laughs and incredible talent in these two.
Its not everyday we get the high honor of being chosen by a fellow wedding professional to shoot their wedding! Thank you Nicci for giving us that opportunity! Nicci works at the always awesome Wedding Wire and had us on her mind for some time. Her hubby Jeff is such a great guy. Cool as a cucumber. They were married by the California waters in a elegant setting with lots of beautiful flowing fabric and Nicci's stunning beaded dress!
Nicole and David were married on a rainy day in Malibu, California. Nicole's dress was an amazing feat of seamstress craft! Her dress had been passed down over serval generations and at one point had puffy sleeves! It was perfectly crafted to their romantic ceremony by the fire on gorgeous hardwood floors. This wedding was a dream!
