matt & rhoda | wedding trailer

every wedding is special and has their great moments. matt & rhoda's just happened to have many of them. working closely with their lovely photographers, anika london, we managed to capture the awesome ceremony, the special sax and guitar performances, the little italy backdrops and even a special toast from one of rhoda's maids of honor stationed in afghanistan.

one particular moment that really resonated with us was the welcoming by the father of the bride who suffered a stroke just a year ago. my (rob's) mom suffered a stroke and heart attack years before and passed away just months before our own wedding. to see the father of bride, standing there after only a year, having to re-learn to speak, being able to witness his daughter get married, give away his daughter, and deliver a speech quite well, almost had me bawling (ren too!) while filming. the emotion afterward summarized the genuine emotion of the entire day as you'll see in the trailer.

FEATURED WEDDING: sherwin & janissa | manhattan beach wedding

their format, their style, their wedding...all original.  one big party with everyone dressed to the t in a spectacular event for this manhattan beach wedding.  what made it even more special for us was getting the chance to really get to know sherwin & janissa by spending time with them prior in filming their grand entrance and entourage video.  it just made the day that much more special.  from the tears and laughs to dogs and rap, it was all a blast.
