Family, friends, and FUN were the words of the day for Ryann + Grady's wedding (check out this trailer and you're sure to see what we mean)! They were married at St. John Lutheran Church in Rochester and held their reception at the Royal Park Hotel. It was a beautiful day in oh, so many ways! We've already begun work on their wedding film and can't wait to share soon. Congrats, Ryann + Grady... we wish you a lifetime of love + happiness! Cheers! #infoleymatrimony

When asked what she loves most about Patrick, Kristina replied... "Patrick is the funniest person you will ever meet - he can make me laugh no matter what. He’s so caring, and he always puts others first. When he looks at me, he makes me feel like I’m the only person in the room".  Patrick, in turn, said this about Kristina... "What I love about Kristina the most is her dedication. She made me never doubt our relationship when I was overseas and she has always supported me with every decision I have made. To make things better I love her laugh, sense of humor and her eyes". The "overseas" Patrick is talking about was a work assignment that took him to Germany for a year. Right during their engagement of all times!! Obviously, it all worked out, and their wedding film is the proof ;)

"There are no words for how much we love the video!  I was in tears watching it on Saturday, and I'm so grateful you were the one there to capture it all.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!  We have been excitedly sharing it with our families all weekend!" - Kristina

Kristina + Patrick, thanks so much for having us a part of your day! We wish you all the best and many, many years of happiness - cheers!

Erin + Josh first met at a young adult Jewish event called Good Shabbos Detroit.  Josh noticed Erin across the room and decided to approach her.  After chatting for several minutes at her table, one of Erin's friends asked them if they were related.  They broke out in laughter when they looked at each other's name tag to find out they had the same last name.  What are the odds?  And, the rest, as they say, is history.  When asked what Erin likes most about Josh, she replied "I love his heart.  He is the most caring, loving, compassionate person I have ever met.  He is the piece of me I never knew was missing".  Josh, in turn, said "I love her smile and heart of gold.  She loves her friends and family and will do anything for them.  She cares about everyone and is perfect in every way".  They go on to say that they're both "goofballs and love chocolate. A lot".  Sounds like a great combination to us!  #friedsquared

"OMG!!!!!!!!!! It is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I’ve gone through 7 kleenex already lol. You did an absolutely phenomenal job. The music is perfect, the video is perfect, everything is perfect. We can’t thank you enough!  This is the best way to spend our weekend, being able to relive our wedding.  We have it on repeat and have already watched it 6 times. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts." - Erin
 
Congrats, Erin + Josh!  We wish you many years of happiness (and chocolate)!!!

When asked about Jeremy, Leslie said... "He's so smart, driven, caring, and can make me laugh SO easily.  Our relationship is so easy, and just seeing him puts a smile on my face".  In turn, Jeremy said this about Leslie... "I love her compassion for everyone around her and how easygoing she is.  She is always fun to be around, shares my competitive nature, and I knew from Day 1 that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her".  Sounds like a match made in heaven!  This truly was a beautiful wedding and we were so happy to be a part of it.  Leslie, Jeremy, and their families couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming.

Congrats, Leslie + Jeremy - here's to many, many years of happiness!  Cheers!

Michael's father started off his toast noting that Chrissy + Michael were both born on Christmas Day. "What are the odds of that?", he asked.  However, what he didn't realize was that one the filmmakers capturing their day was also born on Christmas Day (yes, me...).  Now, what are the odds of THAT...?!! LOL!!  Not only do Chrissy + Michael both have Christmas birthdays but they also met for the first time at a Christmas party (I'm sensing a recurring theme here...).  Chrissy + Michael were married at St. Florian Catholic Church on a beautiful, warm summer day.  After tying the knot, they headed to Belle Isle for a quick photo/video session before it was on to St. Mary's Cultural Center to celebrate the night away.

Cheers, Chrissy + Michael... here's to many, many happy years ahead!

We'd been looking forward to this wedding for almost a year.  From the first time we met Lindsay + Nathan (and, Lindsay's mom Jill), we knew it was going to be special.  All day long the weather teased us.  At times, it was cloudy.  At times, it was sunny and beautiful.  And, wouldn't you know it... right before they said their vows, the clouds let loose and it poured!  Luckily, we were all safely under the tent outside the Royal Park.  But, you can definitely hear the sound of the raining hitting the tent as they said their vows.  Did that stop anyone from having fun and celebrating the happy couple..?  No way!  Everyone moved inside to the ballroom where the party continued in grand style. 

Congrats, Lindsay + Nathan!  Here's to many years of happiness - cheers!

"WOW, it is absolutely wonderful.  Not a dry eye in our house. You and your wife did a phenomenal job.  Thank you again.  We loved it!" - Jill, Mother of the Bride

What a day for a wedding... beautiful bride... handsome groom... fantastic weather... Roary, the Detroit Lions mascot (Jenna is a Lions cheerleader, after all!)... and, the city of Detroit as a backdrop!!!  Jenna + Kristianth were married in front of their closest family and friends at the Colony Club (which was decorated with beautiful floral arrangements courtesy of Kristianth's mother - it looked amazing!).  They wrote their own vows which were the perfect combination of touching and humorous.  Then, it was time to celebrate as everyone danced the night away.  We particularly loved the 2 First Looks... Jenna + Kristianth's, AND, Jenna and her dad's.  Both were so touching and sweet.  You could just feel the emotion.

Congrats, Jenna + Kristianth - here's to many, many years of happiness... Cheers!
