Highlight film of Stella and Paul’s wedding in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday May 11, 2013.
Stella and Paul’s wedding has been fantastically unique. The event was full of shining colors, spiritual songs and joyful dances. I have been particularly amazed by the Bride’s expression of her faith, excitement and love. As time was flying and the bridal party was being rushed to get ready for the church, Stella would still use her few seconds to lift her hands and burst into praises. Quite amazing! She danced, sang praises to her God, sang love songs to her groom, knelt down to worship, screamed her vow…Stella will remain in my memory as one of the most enthusiastic and happiest brides of all times. As the minister said at the ceremony, Paul is a “blessed man because he picked a wonderful, wonderful wife, mate and love of his life”. Stella and Paul will beautifully complement each other as they walk together in life. I pray that their union may overcome all types of challenges and last forever.
Thank you Stella and Paul for your kind heart and allowing my partner and I to spend such a great and special day with you.
Highlight film of Emaly and Jeremy’s wedding in Baytown, Texas on Friday April 26, 2013.
I always consider myself highly privileged to have the opportunity of filming the wedding of a member of the armed forces. The wedding ceremony is probably my favorite moment since there are usually some elements that you won’t find in civilian weddings. For example, the attire of the serviceman or woman is often different and the ceremony itself has an incredible level of formality (I’d even say ‘patriotism’).
Emaly and Jeremy had a cute ceremony in the presence of their parents and friends. Everybody couldn’t help praising them as a beautiful couple. Their union is so beautiful that I felt like spending my time taking videos of them only. I didn’t want their first dance to come to an end. I found it to be a magical moment when the couple’s dance saturated the room with an atmosphere of love and tenderness. I’m so glad that Emaly and Jeremy, as soul mates, have found each other. I pray that their love will grow stronger, deeper and sweeter each day of their lives.
Thank you again Emaly and Jeremy for giving me the precious privilege of capturing the memories of your special day. Wish you all the best!
Highlight film of Kanika and James’ wedding day at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel in The Woodlands, Texas on Saturday April 20th, 2013.
Kanika and James’ wedding was very beautiful. Filming their big day gave me the opportunity of visiting The Woodlands, TX for the very first time. This little town is amazingly clean, classy and cute. I loved the place! But, what I loved even more was the ceremony and the reception that Kanika and James had for their wedding. They both made their wedding day incredibly special and meaningful. Everything looked perfect: from the rooms and corridors of The Waterway Marriott Hotel to the deco, to the dress of the flower girl…everything was Sooooooooo gorgeous!
And what a fun day! The couple and their guests literally let their hair down so as to enjoy each moment of the day. It felt so great to videotape such an event that is filled with laughing and joy. Congratulations Kanika and James on putting together such a superb celebration! I wish you nothing but a lot blessings and success!
Highlight film of Amanda and Jean’s wedding at Vintage Villas in Austin, Texas on Saturday April 13, 2013.
Vintage villas is certainly one of the most beautiful places where I like to shoot weddings. On sunny days, both the place and Lake Travis behind it look gorgeous. However, as I always said, it is actually wedding people who make a venue look beautiful. And Amanda and Jean did just that! The bride’s sublime smile and the couple’s passion for each other turned Vintage Villas into a fabulous wedding venue. The ceremony was fun (with a cute dog carrying the rings) and super romantic (with the couple reading love letters to each other). The reception was one of the most lively events I’ve EVER videotaped. The guests were just amazing in showing their love for Amanda and Jean!
What a wonderful couple Amanda and Jean are! They have the kind of love that never dies. It is full of tenderness, grace and respect. By the moment the ceremony ended, I already knew that these two people were meant to be with each other!
Thank you Amanda and Jean for giving me the privilege of spending such a splendid day with you. Your passion for each other will never die. I simply do wish you great success in all your future endeavors.
Highlight film of Claire and Olisa’s wedding in San Antonio, Texas on Sunday April 7, 2013.
Claire and Olisa’s big day was saturated with all the emotions that characterize great wedding celebrations: joy, laughing, tears, happiness, and excitement. They chose to make their special day a family event, a memory-creating moment and a celebration of everlasting love and friendship. The most striking thing to me was the amount of love that each member of their families expressed to them. What a blessing to be surrounded by loved ones on your wedding day!
It is always said that a marriage brings two families together. Claire and Olisa’s wedding day proved this saying to be true. Their marriage has literally united two families with two different stories. It’s always amazing to me how Heavens manage to beautifully bring two hearts (and their past) together! I really enjoyed spending the day with Claire, Olisa and their families. I was lucky to have my eyes buried behind my camera and no one was able to see the tears of joy I also shed!!!
Thank you to you, Claire and Olisa, for giving me the opportunity of filming such a memorable event. I was deeply moved by your generosity. You even offered gifts to your vendors! I’ve never seen that before! May the Lord who has brought you together strengthen your relationship each passing day and bless you more abundantly!
Highlight film of Jennifer and Kurtis’ wedding in DeSoto, Texas on Saturday April 6, 2013.
Jennifer and Kurtis’ wedding has been so unique in many ways that I might need 30 pages to list all the beautiful details and moments of their celebration. Let me simply comment on one thing that deeply amazed me: the couple’s incredible excitement about their big day! Everything about Jennifer and Kurtis showed that they were super excited about getting married and proclaiming their love to the whole world. They were so proud and happy to stand in front of the people they love and take each other as husband and wife. That was one of the most magical moments of their wedding day: when the couple looked at each other in the eyes and said their vows with a voice full of indescribable emotions. Jennifer and Kurtis have truly enjoyed every moment of their Big day and they successfully made it a landmark, a day they will look back on for a lifetime, the beginning of their lives together…
Congratulations Jennifer and Kurtis and thank you for granting me the honor of filming your special day!!! May your life be filled with nothing but joyful and happy days!
Highlight film of Wajma and Eddie’s Henna ceremony at the Lake Travis Event Center in Lakeway, Texas on Friday March 29, 2013.
Wajma and Eddie’s party (the day before their wedding) gave me the opportunity of filming for the first time the Henna ceremony, a colorful and spiritual tradition that brings good luck to the new couple. The ceremony is usually performed about within a week before the wedding and symbolizes the bittersweet separation of the young bride from her family.
This cultural celebration surprisingly dates back to at least 2000 B.C.E., and its use in ceremonies can be found from South Asia to North Africa. The ceremony itself takes place toward the end of the party, after the bride enters in her last set of clothes. The oldest member of the family, usually the grandmother, spreads henna on the palms of the bride and groom. The henna is then wrapped against the skin to lock in body heat, creating a more intense color. Guests are sometimes encouraged to spread henna on their palms afterward as a symbol of good luck.
Wajma and Eddie are such a beautiful couple. Their union is unique. It wonderfully brings two different families and cultures together.
Thank you Wajma and Eddie for introducing me to a culture I wasn’t familiar with. Knowing you both was indeed a great blessing I’ll always cherish in my life.
