The roar of the falls, the stunning location, the stunning bride, the handsome groom, the written vows, the heartfelt speeches, the support of an incredible community, etc... I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding. It's breathtaking the amount of people you can touch in your lifetime. Joakim and Jackie have traveled far and wide, entering into the lives of so many individuals, leaving traces of love on their hearts. Now, they get to impact the world together as husband and wife. Congratulations, you two! I couldn't have been more honored to have been a part of this incredible day!
Our first international wedding was the incredible union of two dear friends, David & Trilby. It has been a long time coming for these two, who have been together for over ten years! Their unique relationship has influenced many hearts all across the globe, including me and my wife. When I spent time with them in New Zealand nearly six years ago, I knew that their relationship was different. They share a love that gives and gives not only to each other, but to all their friends, family, acquaintances, fellow employees, strangers, etc. They never cease to shed joy, smiles, wisdom, & inspiration on a daily basis. Everyone considers them to be their best friend. These two combined are unstoppable. Their wedding day reflected exactly the way they intend to spend their lives: in the presence of friends and family, loving, laughing, giving, and soaking up each other with intentionality. My wife and I were honored to witness these two share vows, letters, and promises. I couldn't be more thankful for these two. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Benge! We love you guys and see a life full of nothing but radical love for you two in the many, many years to come.
In the heart of winter lies warmth in our hearts. When it was cold outside, all we had to do is look at these two and we felt the warm love that Matt and Stephanie shared. Once we began filming for their day, I could tell that this wedding was going to be something else. I couldn't help but smile every time I pulled my camera up for a shot. These have been through a great deal to find each other, but once they did, they haven't turned back for a second. They have been starstruck in the brightest way possible. We were unbelievable honored to have been a part of such a wonderful gathering of family and friends. Thank you, Matt and Stephanie! You two have such a rich relationship and story worth sharing.
Poise, elegance, grace, warmth: What more can be said about two people who carry so much heart and poetry in their lives towards each other and those that surround them. July 27th, 2015 marked a beautiful union between Liam and Janna. Their vows and commitments to each other echoed love and truth. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. O'Brien!
An epic love, one that can cut you clean to the heart, through the center of the earth, and back again. Mike and Bri have such a radical love for each other that they can get overwhelmed just thinking of each other. It's one of the most beautiful things that I've seen. When these two get together, sparks ignite and you can see a new sense of life burst from their chests. I was so honored to film their wedding day and see this rare love on screen and in person. Being a part of days like this one is why I love filming weddings. Congratulations, Bri and Mike! I look forward to life and love unfolding daily.
A perfect match can be heard in this couple. When you hear the music they create, you can't help but be drawn to this incredible duo. We couldn't have asked for a better story to tell. Jesus and music is their lifeblood and that was evident in their actions. All throughout the day, we were blessed with these wonderful sentimental moments that made their relationship so special and emotional. Not to mention they definitely knew how to throw a great party/concert! We loved being a part of such a wonderful day with these two and their incredible family. Telling a story full of music, radical love, and a godly unity was more than I could have asked for. They are really each other's sunshine;)
There's a glow that occurs when a groom sees his bride before the wedding. It's a sweet moment where nothing else in the world matters but those two. Witnessing the overwhelming passion and love that Brady and Kate have for each other was nothing short of magic. I could feel myself smiling from ear to ear each time I saw these two look at each other. Their story stretches across the globe and it just proves that love knows no boundaries, no borders, no restrictions. It's just love. Nothing else matters. You'll be able to feel it the minute you start watching their epic day take place;) Thank you, Brady & Kate, for letting us be a part of this incredible day! You two are a blessing to know and have a story worth sharing.
Explosive love, a vibrant day that stands tall. Now Blake and Bekah have two reasons to celebrate the 4th of July. Our team was so honored to share in this energetic and patriotic event! Hearing the stories of these two that have dated back six years is so beautiful.. Their personalities are polar opposite, but they couldn't be more perfect for each other. Congratulations you guys!! Thank you for including us in your day!
I can't say enough about Travis and Ashleigh's love for one another. All I can do is show it to you. Their wedding was the makings of a fairytale, including oddly sunny warm weather in the middle of winter, morning makeovers for the ladies, fresh shaves for the gentlemen, stunning locations to promise themselves to one another, choreographed dances, need I say more? My team was blessed to witness a rich love not only between the couple, but for their son, Brycen. They are such a beautiful family that desires nothing but God's path for them both. Thank you for having us as a part of your amazing day, my traveling friends! You are inspiring and wonderful. May your family be blessed eternally!
Now here is a love story that grips your soul and welcomes you into the ultimate fairytale ending. It was fate that Ethan and Lorena were destined to journey through life together. They are two lively and passionate people with hearts for healing others and helping those in need around the world. Lorena knew from an early age that she would marry a tall, blonde hair and blue eyed man, and now here they are as husband and wife. We admire these two and wish them all the best as they continue their happily ever after. Congratulations, Ethan and Lorena Stuart!
Gary and Lindsey have such a unique love that it is near impossible to describe. They had two ceremonies and one reception. Their character and love was shown throughout the entire day, throwing caution and traditions to the wind and getting married the way they wanted to. They make my work feel like I'm not working. Their love is the type of love people all around the world strive for.
