Dailey + Harry Trailer from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

The first thing Dailey’s dad asked her when she told him she met a man in London named Harry was “Prince Harry???”  Her response?  “No dad, even better.”  The beautiful words continued throughout the night with some heartfelt and comical speeches.  Another of my favorites from this film – “The greatest happiness of life is to love and be loved.  Standing here today, I can say that I understand what it’s like to enjoy that greatest happiness.”  – Words that make my heart melt from Harry to Dailey at their stunning outside reception at Hotel Bel Air.  These two have a quiet, yet loud love for each other which lit up the candlelit night.  People from all over, even a huge crowd from London came to celebrate Dailey and Harry on their big day.  Don’t miss all the beauty in the words spoken for Dailey + Harry!

Kate + Taylor Highlight Film from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

The minute we met Kate and Taylor, we fell in love.  These two are so magnetic and each one of them could not stop giggling before the day even started!  It was like seeing kids the day before Christmas… its like they know what Santa is bringing, they asked for it, but they are still highly anticipating the gift they are getting.  Captain Tracy, Pike brother, Mr. Social Chair – is vibrantly in love with his girl.  And Kathryn, Katie, Kat, Kitty – is so radiantly happy when she is in her man’s arms.  This 4th of July holiday wedding was a celebration of independence, but even more so, a celebration of love, laughter, and adventure!  We could not have asked for a better group of people to celebrate this day with or a better view from the beautiful vineyards at Vinehill House in Sebastapol, CA.  You don’t want to miss this film as its complete with the cutest USA details, tons of laughs, and amazing vows.  We enjoyed every minute and hope you all do too!  Is it too far after to say Happy 4th?!

let love fly: Michelle + Stephen’s Trailer from Lyons Air Museum from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

We had such a blast with Michelle + Stephen for their big day at the incredible Lyons Air Museum.  Their decor and setting was so rad and unique and we loved every little detail.  Sean loved all the details so much, he almost got a talking with the police when he chased a plan on the runway!  It was quite funny and that shot didn’t make the Trailer, but it was fun!:) These two are genuine and we’re so glad to have spent the day with you two and your friends and family!  #FollowTheLeader2015‬!

There’s nothing more nostalgic than the moment your childhood home becomes the perfect location for your dream wedding.  It’s easy to say this Ojai home was a dreamy setting for Lindsey + Kevin to celebrate with all of their family and friends after sharing their beautiful vows.  They dined under the trees while string lights lit up the night, with the most beautiful decor!  This truly had the feeling we were the only ones in the middle of these beautiful orange groves.  Check out Lindsey + Kevin and their romantic Ojai wedding!

Spend just a few minutes with Jen and Ilan (even through this Trailer!) and you’ll just how playful they are. These two really have the silly and sweet combo going for them, whether dancing around during photo sessions or taking a quick time out for an inside joke. We had a blast shooting Jen and Ilan’s love story concept film prior to the wedding, too. It was then that we learned they have an amazing sense of humor and well, share a love for 3D movies at home with their beloved Yogurtland — but not to be served without whip cream on  top. (Okay, now I know what I’m having for dinner!) Watch this film for a few giggles through some romantic vows, and a first dance  flip you don’t want to miss!
