Kaitlyn & James - DTLA Wedding

Millwick DTLA Wedding - Los Angeles, CA 

Gosh - excuse us while we just bawl our eyes out over Kaitlyn and James. Talk about an emotional first look... anytime we show new clients this video it always gets a huge reaction and for good reason. It’s so clear these two just adore each other!

Kaitlyn has this modern Grace Kelly/Audrey Hepburn vibe and we just LOVE IT. Not to mention the Millwick is the perfect mixture of modern and industrial. Did we mention it's a green venue???? What's not to love! 

Our favorite part of this video, though? The song!! Compelling wedding videos are a combination of a lot of factors but most important (besides just being yourselves and enjoying your big day!) is your song choice. We license our songs (because we support artists getting paid for their craft!) so while we don’t have access to every song on the radio, we have compiled a list of popular and compelling music that will really take your video to the next level. Kaitlyn and James chose one of our favorites: Chariot! You can listen to the whole song and see the rest of their video on our Vimeo page.

We’re not kidding when we say that song choice is SO important to your video. We find that so many couples wait until the last minute and end up rushing to choose a song that they’re going to listen to 10, 20, 30 years from now! We send all our couples their music options as soon as they book and remind them again closer to the wedding so they have time to browse the thousands of songs we offer!

Miki & Thomas - Chino Hills Country Club Wedding

*Sigh* We are such pushovers for a great Los Angeles aerial shot. There are a lot of gorgeous venues in Los Angeles but Vellano Country Club is one of the special ones. Press play and you'll see what we mean!

Miki and Thomas' video also helped our team discover that we're similarly weak for red lace dresses... check out 00:13! And how great are those cake toppers at 01:31?? But we decided our favorite part was 00:00-03:18...aka, the whole video! You can view this video and TONS more on our Vimeo page here. :)
 

Thanks Miki and Teng!

Audrey & Marco Terranea Wedding

Can you BELIEVE Wayfarer's Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes is even real? We're absolutely in love with this incredible venue. This wedding is just dripping with elegance and romance.

Check out 00:31 for an epic ceremony shot! And 02:01 for an unforgettable (and highly enviable) necklace... talk about BLING. It's gotta be one of the best wedding accessories we've ever seen (and we've seen a whole lot of weddings). 02:13 for a processional reaction that'll make you #melt... 03:31 for Audrey's dramatic bouquet of floral gorgeousness... and 03:44 for those of you who need reminding that true love IS out there!!

....basically, watch the whole video for epic everything ;)

Thanks Audrey and Marco!

Miladi & Alvin's Pedaler's Fork Wedding

"Love is patient, love it kind, it does not envy" ...well, we're envious of this wedding. There's no avoiding that - it has so many wonderful details! Miladi's sparkly arm cuff, Alvin's awesome grape-colored suit, his black-striped white shirt, their "hubby" and "wifey" mugs... ugh, total swoon! <3 Check out 04:15 for maybe the best lighting everrrr.

Thanks Miladi and Alvin!

Lauren & William Vibiana Wedding

The Vibiana Wedding Video - Los Angeles, CA

"Don't be afraid to continue to learn about each other and hold each other's secrets. This knowledge is weightless and a treasure, and can always be carried easily," says one family member during the ceremony. Well, we want to know what Lauren and William's secret is to planning an intricate event that flowed perfectly! Is it the planner, the venue, the couple's innate sense of style?? And how do you get two adorable dogs to walk down an aisle so flawlessly?? These are secrets we definitely hope they don't hold ;)

Thanks Lauren and William!

Brooke & Brett Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara Wedding

Jimmy Choo shoes, 2 dress changes, a dance floor dip and kiss, and a mid-song confetti burst under glowing reception lights... that's our new OkCupid.cm profile tagline. Men/Women, re-creating these 4 things is our end goal of any DM. Plan your pick-up line according. 

Thanks Brooke and Brett!

Mia & Chandler Calamigos Ranch Wedding

This venue is straight out of a magazine <3 We've worked at Calamigos Ranch several times and must say that every single wedding there has been stunning. The video's opening coverage of the reception tables placed beneath the trees with the sun spilling over them? Mia's perfectly framed procession at 0:51? ...Sign us up for that magazine subscription ;)


Thanks Mia and Chandler!

Lesly & Sam Brand Library Wedding

This video thumbnail is one of our favorites because it's so telling of their relationship. Their first dance at 3:13 is similarly as reflective and touching... Sam is clearly in awe of the moment and so so HAPPY! (...and real quick, Lesly's jeweled hairpiece!!! :))) *furiously googles hair berets*)

Thanks Lesly and Sam!

S & K

Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock Wedding Video - Los Angeles, CA

S & K could have have chosen a better song for their soundtrack. A near-perfect choice! This video is so tender and laid-back that you can't help but relax into their story and feel like you've seen them before :) Their daughter steals the show just as much, and is represented on their wedding cake as the smallest of the three cats... too cute!! 

Thanks S & K!

Jessica & Anthony Grace Simmons Lodge Wedding

This wedding had so many sweet moments, especially those that honored the recent and unexpected passing of Jessica's father. She and Anthony used the day to celebrate their family as well as their love, and we left that day with an appreciation for the joy and tenderness that these two families radiated. This highlight video's final frame is a great exclamation mark for Jessica and Anthony's beautiful story :)

Thanks Jessica and Anthony!

Andrea & Nathan Calamigos Ranch Wedding

"California Bride" reads Andrea's bridal party shirt, and she absolutely is! Her whole party had such a relaxed, cozy, and warm atmosphere with the most glowing guests!! We loved the reception coverage and all the laughs and bright smiles it captures. See 2:46 for an extremely dedicated bouquet catch! :))

Daisy & Peter Loft on Pine Wedding

Peter and Daisy were such a pleasure to work with, and their traditional Chinese tea ceremony was just as great! A truly beautiful way to start off such a special day; we loved her vibrant red dress! And then her wedding dress...like glittering stars! :))

Thanks Peter and Daisy!
