Sowmia & Matthew: You and I, in Joy and Happiness without End

Highlight film of Sowmia and Matt’s Hindu and Jewish wedding at the Austin Hindu Temple in Austin, TX on Friday November 29, 2013 and Memory Lane Event Center in Dripping Springs, TX on Saturday November 30, 2013.

2013 was a year of wonderful intercultural weddings. Sowmia and Matt’s special days were fantastically eventful and romantically unique. On Friday Nov. 29th, we had the great privilege of filming the Hindu wedding ceremony. This is one of the oldest and richest wedding traditions in the world. It’s a colorful event with meaningful rituals and beautiful symbolism. The groom and the bride went through all the steps…successfully! Congratulations Sowmia and Matt, you were so beautiful together (was incredibly fun & romantic to watch you play the rolling-the-coconut game).

The next day, we witnessed the Jewish wedding ceremony in Dripping Springs. The rabbi was so much fun, no doubt about that. The couple were so in love with one another that each of their eye contact seemed to freeze time. Magical moment! At the reception, guests didn’t want it to end. The DJ’s last song wasn’t the last. Guests shout-requested one more song…we all wanted to spend more time with the couple.

Sowmia and Matt, big congratulations on your amazing wedding days! Believe me, your union is a great example of what true love should be like. Your marriage is indeed making the world a better place. Thank you for the honor of being a part of your celebrations. Wish you many many many years of joy and happiness!

Shadiya & Steven: I am My Beloved’s and My Beloved is Mine

Highlight film of Shadiya and Steven’s wedding at the Antebellum Oaks Venue in Austin, Texas on Saturday November 23, 2013.

What a beautiful union! Shadiya and Steven’s union is more than the coming together of two families; it is the powerful connection of two cultures, two traditions, and two horizons. Only love can perform such a connection. The couple are two amazing people whose love majestically transcends human barriers. Shadiya and Steven, I literally fell in love with your love!!! Congratulations on your fantastic wedding! Despite the cold of the day, the event was super fun, enjoyable, and unforgettable. It was a great experience to witness both the American and Nigerian ceremony traditions on the same day.

By the way, Shadiya and Steven, you both looked incredibly great in your Nigerian outfits (at some point I had the impression that Steven was actually born Nigerian and simply kept it secret for all his life…LOL). I love you guys and wish you many centuries of love and happiness!

Comment by Shadiya (Posted at weddingwire on Frid. Dec. 20, 2014): “Where can I start? Working with Daniel was amazing. He literally slipped into the background during the ceremony, but he caught all the amazing key moment during the wedding. Every once in a while I would look his way and he would smile… That smile for me was priceless. Words cannot say how happy I am that I found him for my wedding. He did everything right and he went above and beyond to make this video for us. Out of all my vendors he delivered everything for me. I would highly recommend him for any of your event. His work demeanor and ethics are unbelievable amazing for someone that works in a wedding industry. If there was a 6 star I would give it to him!!!”

Joanna & Alex: I Love You For Being You

Highlight film of Joanna and Alex’s wedding at Saint William Catholic Church in Round Rock, Texas and Georgetown Community Center in Georgetown, Texas on Saturday November 16th, 2013.

Joanna and Alex’s love is like a burning fire. Look at this couple when they’re dancing together and you’ll see love particles in the air, right above their heads. The heat of the flame of their passion is so tangible and visible that you know for sure that this couple are in for many many decades of joy and happiness. Spending the day with them was such a blessing. Joanna and Alex are one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Their families and friends are so fun and loving. I didn’t feel like I was working…I just had fun from the first to the last minute of the wedding day.

Joanna and Alex, congratulations on your wonderful event. I enjoyed every second of it. I pray that the fire of your love may keep on burning higher and higher each day of your lives. Many blessings to you, your family, and friends!

Heather & Steven: You Are My Happily Ever After

Highlight film of Heather and Steven’s wedding at Jones Barn at Willow Creek Ranch in Cleburne, Texas on Friday November 15th, 2013.

Here is a beautiful couple that celebrated their special day in a quite romantic place. I was glad I discovered the Jones Barn for the first time. This venue has an incredible atmosphere created by its impressive wooden structure. Whether your ceremony is indoor or outdoor, this place will undoubtedly give to your wedding a unique touch and feeling. Heather and Steven’s event was very beautiful, cutely decorated and romantically organized. I got captivated by the loving relationships the wedding couple had with both of their parents. The first look between Heather and her dad was so heartwarmingly touching. Unforgettable moment!

Heather and Steven, your love is great, so warm and tender. I’m sure the future holds a lot of happiness and so many blessings for you. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

Jocelynn & Michael: I’ll Always Kiss You Goodnight

Highlight film of Jocelynn and Michael’s wedding at the Foundry United Methodist Church in Houston, TX and Tin Hall in Cypress, TX on November 9th, 2013.

I’ll remember Jocelynn and Michael’s event as one of the most amazing weddings of 2013. It was pleasantly fun, enjoyably beautiful and unforgettably romantic and lively. The couple are simply two very nice people that anyone would love to spend time with. And they both come from two incredible families that I had the privilege of working with. Really great people on both sides. This was a unique family-centered wedding indeed. At the reception, babies and children jumped and cheerfully danced with their parents. Grandfathers and grandmothers spent the night singing and leap-dancing with their children and grandchildren. It just felt so great to be a part of such a special day!

Jocelynn and Michael, congratulations on your fantastic wedding. You’re so perfect together and I know you’ll live happily for years and years to come. Thank you Tammie for having given me the privilege of working for the wedding couple. Your love for them is just amazing!

Keri and Garett: Today When I Say Yes to You…

Highlight film of Keri and Garett’s wedding at Kindred Oaks in Georgetown, Texas on Sunday November 3rd, 2013.

Keri and Garett’s wedding was so fun and sweet. I loved the bride’s smile as she was walking down the aisle. I could read an abundance of joy and happiness in her magical smile. Beautiful moment. I loved the groom’s relaxed & laid-back attitude and presence. There was no sign of stress on his face. On the contrary, he glowingly radiated confidence and tenderness for his bride. What I loved the most was Keri and Garett’s hanging of their vow notes on a plant that stood right behind the officiant. This made their ceremony unique and profoundly romantic. The couple were preceded by their parents who, after reading love letters to their children, tied those letters to the plant. To me, this plant symbolized the union of two hearts and two families that decide to live together, grow together, flourish together, and bear fruits together.

Congratulations Keri and Garett on having such a unique wedding day. It was a great honor to be a part of your big day. May your home be always filled with happiness and may your love grow like a baobab, going higher and deeper every day.

Erin and Chris: Wedding Teaser/Trailer

Here is Erin and Chris’ wedding teaser (some people might call it a trailer). The couple had a beautiful and romantic wedding at the Stonehouse Villa in Driftwood, Texas on Saturday October 19th, 2013.

Erin & Chris: Because You’re Mine, I Walk the Line

Highlight film of Erin and Chris’ wedding at the Stonehouse Villa in Driftwood, Texas on Saturday October 19th, 2013.

Erin and Chris are a happy couple. And, as their Best Man said during the toast: “they are perfect for each other and they are going to make each other’s dreams come true”. Although happiness in love can’t be arithmetically measured or described, it still can be felt or seen. Erin and Chris’ happiness was so tangible that everybody spoke about it. It didn’t take me long to realize how much they are meant for each other. To me, they are like a camera and a lens, a keyboard and a mouse or a phone and its battery….just perfect for each other!

Erin and Chris, thank you so much for having given me the opportunity of filming your beautiful wedding. Was a great honor for me to know you. I don’t know who decorated your wedding venue but I wanted to tell you that they did such an amazing job. That was the best decorated wedding ever! Wish you both many many years of endless happiness in your marriage.

Comment from: Janet, mother of the bride

Awesome job! You did an amazing job and we enjoyed working with you!
