Here are a few tips to make your formal dances — the first dance, mother-son dance, and father-daughter dance— memorable, entertaining, and most importantly, fun!Read More
We've known Laura for a few years because she was the roommate of a mutual friend, and each time we spent time with her we left feeling seen, appreciated, and achy all over from laughing so much. Laura's the best type of spunk, and her infectious joy can’t be escaped. We love her!
So you can imagine we had high expectation for whoever got to marry this girl. Well, Dan did not disappoint! The first time we met him, we agreed we didn’t want him to leave. He matched Laura’s energy in the best way, and they felt so in sync. Just like Laura, he made us feel seen, appreciated, and achy all over from laughing so much. Obviously, they’re perfect together!
So if their wedding was going to reflect them, it would need to be a mixture of sweet and spicy—and boy was it!
First, the sweet: 1) they got married at the gorgeous Green Gates at Flowing Lake, and they made good use of the ceremony view overlooking the water 2) Laura and Dan wrote personalized notes for every single guest (including us!), and it awaited each person at their place setting 3) They handmade ice cream sandwiches for everyone’s dessert. They LOVE the people in their lives, and they made sure to make that known. So, so sweet.
As for the spicy: 1) They didn’t take themselves too seriously throughout the day. They were thrilled to be together and ready to enjoy every moment! 2) They laughed just as hard as everyone else when one of their ring bearers angrily chucked his shoe down the aisle when it accidentally came off 3) Laura was SO ready when Dan jumped on her back mid-first dance and spun him around 4) Their signature laughs weren't contained throughout the day, and we couldn’t help but make them known in their film. We laughed, they laughed, everyone laughed. It was SUCH a fun day!
Laura and Dan, we feel honored you let us spend the day with you. We loved laughing with you, making you kiss sooooo much, and stuffing our faces with the best ice cream sandwiches we’ve ever had. Enjoy reliving your day!

When a Koussa sister emails and asks you to film her wedding, you drop everything to make sure it happens. We’re speaking from experience when we say there’s no way we’d miss out on any celebration with this family!
We first met Tayte at her sister Korryn’s wedding a few years ago, and we knew after spending time with the Koussa clan that we’d be nothing but honored to be a part of another wedding with this sweet family.
We knew from Tayte’s magical and hysterical Disney-inspired speech at her sister’s wedding that she was full of spunk and heart, which made packing up and hopping on a plane to Maui for her wedding even more exciting.
As we hoped and knew would happen, Tayte and her oh-so-sweet fiancé Justin welcomed us with open arms after we arrived on the island. In the days leading up to he wedding, we sailed with them and their friends and family on a catamaran during sunset, and everyone on that boat immediately made us feel like family. Fast forward to their wedding day at the stunning Olowalu Plantation House, and we knew from the moment we walked on the grounds that we were in for a day filled with beauty, laughter, and so much dancing!
The details were perfect, and with all the guests dressed in white, Tayte and Justin created an atmosphere that brought the perfect elegant beach vibe to their ideal Pacific backdrop.
Tayte and Justin, you’ll see the laughter, happy tears, and island beauty on full display in your wedding film. We hope you laugh, cry, and feel like you’re right back there on your wedding day— aloha spirit and all.

We’re anxious to share this film with Emily and Alex, so we’re going to keep this blog post short and sweet. Before diving into the film, we just want to share one small thing Emily’s maid of honor said during her speech that has stuck with us since their wedding day.
With striking honesty and sincerity, Emily’s maid of honor talked about the whole, fulfilled, and brilliant people Emily and Alex are individually. She talked about having never met two people who—completely apart from each other—are perfectly content, perfectly successful, perfectly kind, and perfectly whole all on their own. The beauty of Emily and Alex, she said, is that they don’t need each other. Instead, in their wholeness, they choose to be together and move through the world as a unit Two whole people, bringing their wholes selves into a marriage with no need to complete the other, but to simply enjoy each other, encourage each other, and bring a real love and respect to the beauty of marriage.
We can tell you this: the words of Emily’s maid of honor will always stay with us for a long time, painting a hopeful and gorgeous picture of marriage <3
Now with that, enjoy Emily and Alex’s romantic, fun (and perfectly moody) wedding film.
