Brandon & Breanna

The Ranch Golf Club

I love Christian heartfelt weddings.

Breanna & Brandon were one of the sweetest couples this year.
I love my Drone footage of the venue.

The amazing decor and design was by Asiel Design made my movie look even better.
The Cake was gorgeous!

The Golden sunset was amazing out in the field which made the romantic shots

warm and charming.

Sergio & Ashley

Holman Ranch Carmel Valley

Blessed by another beautiful couple and their wedding at Holman Ranch Winery!

Patty Speirs of Every Last Detail Weddings executed this beautiful wedding perfectly.

She specializes in Weddings in Carmel and Carmel Valley, Monterey, Santa Cruz and just about anywhere.

I have filmed many a weddings at the Ranch including Wish Upon a Wedding which was for our very special Cancer Bride.

What was so cool was the sweetness and gentleness of this couple who fell in love.

She a nurse and Sergio a medical executive.

Orbie Pullen and I were blessed with an amazing sunset at the hill top vineyards that to me are the most

picturesque with Oak Trees for my drone sunsets over the winery.

They have rooms where the bride and groom gets ready.

Here is another special couple I was honored to hang out with and hope you enjoy the wedding.

Jason & Krista.

Eric & Rebekah

Roaring Camp Wedding video

Video is not only a passion for me at AVR Films but,

also a fulfilling time of witnessing the greatest moments in life.

The joining of two people and two families.

This wedding was more than that too.

Jim & Kim were close high school friends that got married,

had children and called on me to film their daughter’s wedding.

Truly blessed to be a wedding videographer and composer of great moments.

Truly blessed and honored to be part of the Perteet family day.

I get to be an author for composing each bride’s wedding day story.

Ron & Susan

Clos LaChance Winery

I love making new friends for life at each of my weddings that I personally film.

From the moment I met them Ron & Susan I knew I would enjoy an on going friendship with this wonderful couple!

Their story is beautiful, as well as the children they share in their lives, including their new precious baby girl.

I was so honored to be invited to film the beautiful celebration that was Susan and Ron’s wedding at

Clos LaChance Winery.

You could not have asked for a more beautiful summer day!

We also had a chance to work with some of our favorite vendors including

Brian MacStay Photography, and the magnificent, and always entertaining, DJ Ron Grandia!

Here is a small peek at the beautiful day Susan and Ron’s had on their wedding day!

I hope you enjoy my hand crafted movie!

Jordan & Lexi

Roles Ranch

I had the distinct pleasure of filming the 1st wedding at Roles Ranch in Gilroy.

Jordan & Lexi both shared how much they loved each other on their wedding day

and it was so evident from their vows to each other, romantic filming together and

also from the guest and family who shared their thoughts about each of them.

There is some amazing filming of this venue that is ready and waiting for the next

couple to drop in.






Ashlee & Tucker

Ashlee and Tucker are two of the most nicest people you will ever meet.
Their love for each other is deep rooted in faith and friendship, and love, so much so, just watch my movie.

I had the privilege to film Ashlee’s sister’s wedding 15 years ago!

She called me as soon as she was engaged 1st before any other vendor and I had the fun of actually setting up
her A-Team including

Brian MacStay Photography

Sarah of La Bella Events,

Jason Mitchell of Gatsby Entertainment

Erin of Archival Photo booths.

This is the A-Team if you ever want one for your wedding Brides!

The couple’s stunning union was at a private residence with a stunning view right over Pebble Beach.
Here is the hand crafted movie below.
God bless you two and wonderful new memories together!

Jeff & Katelyn

Clos LaChance Winery

The Winery sunsets are amazing for wedding cinematography.
Besides the fact it’s right around the corner from the Studio is a huge benefit too.
The Staff, the Wine, the ceremony area and view of the valley is spectacular.

Thanks to my incredible team of Wedding Vendors who created a gorgeous

wedding for Katelyn & Jeff … you are all stellar at what you do!
