Kim and Jim’s Wedding at Three Village Club

Kim and Jim’s Wedding at Three Village Club

  Finding someone who will always celebrate who you are is a rare gift, one that we don’t often discover. Learning the ins and outs of each others personalities means that we accept every aspect of them, and come together to share this incredible journey we call life. Knowing that the person by your side is someone who will always support you, always cheer for you, and always be there to make your life richer and more full is something that each and every one of us will aways treasure. Kim + Jim were tailor made for each other, and their Three Village Inn affair was a direct reflection of the sweet love they share. Their sweet cards and the way they absolutely melted into each other every time they embraced was enough to assure us that Kim + Jim were nothing short of soulmates. Every sweet moment they spent together, and every word of their incredibly adorable vows, was a genuine testament to the history that they share, and the futures they have together. Congratulations, Kim + Jim (we still love saying that!). We wish you both many World Series, many nights together, and a lifetime of incredible memories. You’re married!

Kristen and Robert’s Wedding at Sand Castle

Kristen and Robert’s Wedding at Sand Castle

    Over the past several years as wedding cinematographers, we’ve been gifted the honor of seeing so many shades of love: the vibrant, explosive tones that knock you off your feet, and the warm, almost soothing ones that bring a sense of peace. We’ve learned that the rainbow every love comes in different shapes, different colors, different spectrums, but the one thing they all have in common is their tendency to shimmer in the most glorious ways – kind of like the gemstones of a kaleidoscope. For Kristen + Robert, their incredible love was like the sweetest beams of light after the heaviest rain, with every color matching perfectly to the place they were in their lives, or the way they grew together, or the mountains they climbed to get there. No matter what challenges either of them faced, they found that they could always tackle them together. The bouquet of rainbow roses that Robert gave to Kristen during the first few months of their time together set the precedent for what their future held: a promise of forever hidden in the symphony of color they had composed for themselves. Congratulations, Kristen + Robert! Being able to see the way you two love and support each other was something we are still so honored to have been a part of. We wish you fields of rainbow roses, unending pots of gold, and the future you always knew you’d share together. Photography | Lighthouse Photography Dream Weddings DJ | Turn It Up...
Ashley and Michael’s Wedding at Chateau La Mer

Ashley and Michael’s Wedding at Chateau La Mer

    When we think about our perfect forever, we often visualize an incredible someone to share our lives with. That one, special person we can share all of our fears and accomplishments with; the person who will always stand by us, through storms and sunny days. Without love, life feels empty – lifeless. The vibrancy that your soulmate brings is unmatchable, and once you find them, your world instantly fills with color. For Ashley + Michael, that shimmering color came in the form of cotton candy ice cream from Coldstone, and all at once, without pause, Ashley + Michael found their forever in the pink and blue swirls of their sweet confection. Ashley + Michael’s gorgeous Chateau La Mer affair was overflowing with the kind of magic that fills the pages of our favorite fairytales. Ashley’s sister said it best – Ashley has always been a princess, and in Michael, she found the Prince Charming tailor made for her. The way Ashley + Michael looked at each other with stars in their eyes and love in their heart was so incredible, and every time they laughed, or kissed, or smiled, the entire room was captivated by their presence. For these two, love comes easy, and we were so honored to be part of their beautiful celebration. Cheers to the happy couple! DJ | Barattini...
Theresa and Kyle’s Wedding at Giorgio’s

Theresa and Kyle’s Wedding at Giorgio’s

    When we put down roots with someone special, the strong and intricate pieces keep us grounded. We invest our love and life into someone who, whether we’ve known it forever or not, has always been the perfect person for us. We spend our lives watering those roots and taking great care of them to ensure that our love remains unbreakable, and we revel in the fact that life is so much better with our lives intertwined. Although it takes work, and time, and lots of energy, we do it because we know that our days would never be the same without them; because through everything, we could never imagine a world without them in it. For Theresa and Kyle, their unbreakable kind of love began years ago as high school sweethearts, and through all of their incredible moments together, the roots of their tree have formed a metropolis, extending far into their future together. It was only natural that they would say I Do in front of their closest friends and family, because when you find your soulmate, something clicks. Their love knows no boundaries, no distance, and no time; it simply is, in all its beautiful glory. Theresa and Kyle, your love was beyond inspiring to experience, and are so honored you asked us to be there to document such a gorgeous day. We wish you nothing but happiness as you embark on your newest journey as Mr. & Mrs., and we can’t wait to see where life takes you next. Congratulations!

How to Budget Like a Pro

How to Budget Like a Pro

If you asked us what our wedding dreams looked like, it would probably go something like this: a fantastic cinematographer + photographer + DJ, a four-flavor naked wedding cake, a ceremony arch covered in hundreds of fresh blooms, a hand-beaded Swarovski crystal gown (or two!), a sweet suit, and a jaw-dropping venue on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the ocean. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? Unfortunately for most of us, our dream details have major price tags, which is why we’re here to help you figure out the best way to include all the things you love about those Pinterest weddings without cutting things out completely – and making sure to include the things you can’t live without, too! The Big Three: Video, Photo, and DJ After choosing your venue (because what’s a wedding without a place to get married!?), you have some difficult decisions to make. Do you hire any old video, photo, and DJ company you find? Or do you reserve a good chunk of your budget for those top-tier companies that are guaranteed to capture your the memories that will last a lifetime? Those top-tier companies (us included!) really care about your day, and we will never miss a moment. We’ll be the team running from place to place to make sure we’re always there, camera in hand! We may be biased, but we’ll ALWAYS go for the latter! Hiring quality professionals who are well reviewed and come highly recommended is always the best idea. Choosing people based on their track record can make all the difference, because each cinematography company is different! Not knowing how the company you’ve chosen is different from the next is an...
