My passion in recording began around the time when the movie "Home Alone" introduced a device called the "Talkboy". In the movie, the main character, who was an 8 year old boy, used the device to record sounds and played them back at slower speeds. This sparked my interest in recording sound bytes at every one of my family dinners. To this day, I still have numerous audio tapes of all my cousins conversations. I love reliving memories because it brings me back to the past and makes me feel like I'm traveling back in time. Of course, audio alone doesn't suffice in bringing the full impact of a memory so I decided to get my first video camera at Best Buy. From then on, I filmed everything that I wanted to remember. People started to notice this and began asking me if I would be interested in filming their weddings. That became the catalyst to what I like to do now and hope to continue doing for many weddings to come in hopes that I can help couples relive their special day!

Bently Reserve Wedding, San Francisco, CA // Teresa + Jing

With a little help from a friend named Match, Teresa and Jing got the opportunity to meet each other and fall in love. They both couldn’t believe that with so many people in the world, they ended up being the perfect match at the perfect time. We know that they couldn’t have waited for this day to come any sooner. Every detail was perfect from their colors to their custom made glow sticks! We listened in on their heartfelt vows and their commitment to each other with promises of giving to one another their best. We were overwhelmed with emotions as we saw an abundance of love coming from both families as well as from each other. We are glad that through one opportunity came the greatest change of their lifetime. Congratulations on your new life together!

Thank you Teresa and Jing for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

Clos LaChance Winery Wedding Highlight, San Martin CA // Brittney + Doron

When Brittney and Doron crossed paths ten years ago, neither one knew that the course of their lives would change forever. As Brittney shared during her vows, the chance encounter at that college party was the start of a memorable journey…and what a journey it was!

Being a professional athlete, Doron traveled a lot and is often away months at a time. They endured a long distance relationship, but each passing day away from each other only made them long for one another even more. So when they finally tied the knot, the joy and excitement was evident throughout the day.

Their ceremony took place at their alma mater, Santa Clara University. The reception followed soon after at the beautiful Clos LaChance Winery. The elegant decorations complemented the beautiful mountainous backdrop of the winery. The guest enjoyed dinner courtesy of Le Pappillon and were treated to a chocolate fountain and a photobooth. The guests had blast! We did too!

Thank you Brittney and Doron for giving us the honor of filming your wedding! Best wishes to the both of you!

Hakone Gardens, San Mateo Wedding // Stephanie + Daniel

Stephanie and Daniel met at UC Davis and from there, their adventure began. Daniel proposed to Stephanie in Davis and for seven years they were engaged. Seven years of building milestones together. In those seven years, they each earned their PhDs and found jobs as professors. Their relationship has also spanned three different states!

We had the honor of being in one of their most important milestones, their wedding (of course). Unique to its core, their wedding consisted of many personal DIY touches. From the save the dates, to the invites, cake pops (their wedding cake), wedding favors, centerpieces, ribbon wands and their choreographed dance at the end. One huge theme throughout their wedding was family. Even the speeches given by the siblings and parents made us teary because of how personal and heartfelt each word was. We definitely sensed the closeness.

A warm day with warm smiles, we had such a blast getting to know these two. We’re incredibly happy for them that after 7 years, they finally tied the knot. To many more new adventures together! Congrats!
