Alexandra + Lazaro // Top of the Rock Wedding Film

If I told you that Alexandra and Lazaro’s Top of the Rock wedding day ended with the wildest, craziest reception of 2018, well, that would also be the biggest understatement of 2018.

But let’s jump back to the beginning of the day, where these two Miami, Florida natives stood across from one another — in an empty chapel soon to be packed to the brim with family and friends — and exchanged personal vows. Based on hanging out with these two as they got ready, I could already tell that the rest of the day would be lively to say the least; but this quiet moment proved to be the most poignant.

And that’s what made the reception so infectiously enjoyable. These families were full of so much passion, that Sheri Holloway and I couldn’t help but join in on the dance floor and bust out some moves as Elevate Entertainment rocked the house. We ended up parting ways around midnight, but legend has it that Alexandra, Lazaro and their loved ones are still partying to this day . . .

Max + Rebecca // Big Cedar Wedding Film

As soon as Max let out a nervous exhale before opening his gift from Rebecca, I knew I was about to witness a sincere, heartfelt moment. Sure enough, he could barely hold it together while reading the handwritten words and promises from his bride-to-be. When I got back to the girls' room, letter from Max in hand, Rebecca exhibited the same nervous excitement and teary-eyed reaction. Finally, when the Integrity Hills chapel doors swung open, I believe that Rebecca, quite literally, took Max's breath away.

Although this wedding was equipped with gorgeous floral arrangements, a stunning venue, perfect weather, a live band and even an accordion/sparkler send-off, it was the little moments between Max and Rebecca that I remember the most. Their interactions with one another, with barely any direction from me or the photographer, were truly a dream to capture.

That kind of love, dear reader(s), is what this whole marriage thing is all about.

Chad + Candice // Big Cedar Branson Wedding Film

Cue the waterworks.

The love that Chad and Candice share is not only unquestionable, it's downright radiant. Seriously, the moment these two met under the warm, glistening trees of Big Cedar Lodge for their first look, their smiles never wavered. And when Candice busted out her heartfelt vows to Chad? Pshhh. I might have teared up a bit. (Viewers, insert "ugly cry" here.)

Despite some threatening clouds early on -- which actually helped cool things off a bit -- the whole day was magical from beginning to end. During the ceremony, the chapel at Integrity Hills was drenched in the setting-sun's glowing departure, enhancing the already-beautiful interior. Top that off with a reception featuring a stunning view of the lake, amazing food and lovely weather, and you could claim that this wedding was just about perfect.

Thank you so much for having me, Chad and Candice, and for filling my heart with purpose.
