The Movie: The Notebook Theme Wedding

It’s really neat to work with a venue wedding manager and watching all the weddings

Lindsey had done for many brides to give them their wedding day.

Today is Lindseys wedding day, her day to be a bride at The Palmdale Estates in Fremont.

And I was her choice to film the greatest day in her life.

So honored Lindsey

Mitchell Ethridge & Carlee Weston went to their special park in Los Gatos 
where Mitchell, my son, wanted to propose there for all its dating memories.
I love to film wedding proposals because they are so special.
 To witness one is just one of the biggest days in my life.

I love it when she says: "Is something happening?" as Mitchell reaches into 
his pocket and he has a smooth recover "No, do you want any gum" ha ha.

Especially when its my own son's proposal to Carlee who we so love so much
and her entire family we got to know at our families lake house last year.
2015 will be a very special year for the Ethridge's and Weston's.
Cheers Mitch and Carlee!

I  love filming weddings all over the states and Nebraska was awesome.
Green corn fields as far as you could see with old vintage barns and York Town full of history.
The bride had her aunt's empty victorian house with either the girls getting
hair and makeup on or just a cool room for hanging a couple dresses for the shoot.
We loved filming this charming event with BRIAN MACSTAY PHOTOGRAPHY and both of our crews
for what turned out to be one of my favorite wedding maid of honor toasts here:

We met our Bride Susan at Clos LaChance Winery where Ron and Susan will be tying the knot

for their big wedding day.

Then we headed off for our evening at CordeValle Golf Club in search of the perfect spots for the sunset.

Brian MacStay and I love working together and we create a super fun experience for

our clients as well as double the creativity for each of our shots.

Once we were with Cameras in hand we soon drove off towards the sunset which turned out to

be pretty epic as far as sun rays and great temperature.

A few of Brian’s images are below.

I really like this couple and they are so perfect for each other as we found out in my movie.

Can’t Wait to create your hand crafted Wedding Video at our favorite South Bay Wedding Winery!

Cheers Ron & Susan!
