Brian and Sharon. A wedding film at The Union Club in Cleveland, Ohio.

Weddings, I’ve been to a ton of them! Each one has their own unique setting, characters and style. When Sharon contacted cuff and veil about wanting to have us create their wedding film, I was humbled. We had a few email exchanges and we decided to meet for coffee. If I remember correctly, Brian, Sharon and I ended up talking for over an hour and a half, sharing stories while laughing and getting to know each other. In the back of my mind I was already assembling how to piece their wedding film together. Their day had many different dynamics stemming from people coming from all over the globe. Sharon grew up in Indonesia and came to the states in eighth grade to continue her education. Sharon speaks softly, yet her words are very concise. Brian spent many days water skiing in Canada. Who knew that a search for a painter would bring these two together. Brian answered Sharon’s inquiry and the rest is history!

We truly enjoyed getting to know Brian and Sharon and wish them all the best!

We hope you enjoy their wedding film.

Alex and Allison. A Portage Country Club Wedding Highlight

Alex and Allison are truly childhood sweethearts. From meeting in the 4th grade to ending up in the same city after they graduated college, you can say they have been through a lot. Fate, and  some divine intervention brought these two amazing people together, so if you think a little rain on their wedding day was a big deal, think again!  These two have such a sweet and genuine story.

We hope you enjoy their wedding highlight!

Steve and Elizabeth. A wedding at Key Center

Steve & Elizabeth had a beautiful wedding day. The pieces of their big day fit so perfectly together. From a heartfelt first look with her father, to an emotional love note from Steve before Elizabeth walked down the aisle. These two truly define what love is all about.

We enjoyed every minute of their wedding day and loved putting this film together for them. We hope you enjoy their story!

Michael & Rebecca. Same Day Edit at Gervasi Vineyard

Michael & Rebecca were married on August 24, 2014. It was 86 degrees out, beautiful and sunny! Those two last words, perfectly describe the bride & groom. The first time I met Michael was at our last planning meeting. He walked into Panera Bread holding & swinging a golf club. I thought they got his order wrong.. Nope, he was just happy to be! Rebecca, on the other hand, had every detailed paper and form nicely prepared into one convenient folder, smiling as she effortlessly went over the final plans of her Big Day. That’s how she rolls, being an Event Planner! It all took place at Gervasi Vineyard, an absolutely stunning venue and one of my favorite places to shoot.

Here is their Same Day Edit. Even “Google”, their dog was a special part of their big day!!

Cheers!!

James and Cristina. Highlight Film. The Union Club

It was late Spring, I was sitting on my deck sipping a cold one when I got the call. James & Cristina were seeking a cinematographer for their June 7th wedding. I was up for the task, and the party that ensued later that evening. All kidding aside, these two are so in love, you can see it in their eyes. Truly meant to be! So many emotions filled their magical day. This one really “got me”. I am so happy that that this night was finally about YOU, James & Cristina! Here is the highlight film.

Josh and Lindsey. Club at Hillbrook Highlight Film

Our last wedding of 2013 was definitely one to talk about!  Josh & Lindsey are an amazingly sweet couple.  So many details went into their big day, all led by superstar wedding planner Jennifer Hartman of Heart 2 Heart Occasions.  We delivered their Feature Film to them and then reworked the edit a bit to create this wonderful highlight film for them.   I could talk forever about the details of their wedding day, but it’s just easier to show you their highlight film.  We hope you enjoy!

Off the cuff – ‘Tis the season to be the Reason

Every year around this time, I reflect back on what means the most in life.  It is not planned,  it just happens.  While it may be cold out, with dirty snow on the ground, and gray muck on the cars, it’s also the time to take in how grateful we are to have the time to spend with our loved ones!  This year, on a personal level, my wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in Punta Cana.  I trained and ran my first 5K.  My son started Second grade and my daughter, Kindergarten!  We traveled to the mountains of Tennessee and also to the beach.  We had teeth lost and enjoyed dance recitals, soccer, Tae Kwon Do, baseball, swimming lessons and gymnastics and sushi, yes lots of sushi.  We honored my dad on the 1-year anniversary of his passing by spreading his ashes on his favorite lake where he loved to fish.  Lastly, my brother and his wife finally moved back home from Las Vegas, after being there 17 years.  We are still looking for the teeth!  Needless to say, we created a lot of memories from this year.

On a professional level, we said goodbye to our company Attention to Detail Wedding Films, and gave life to Cuff & Veil Wedding Films

My couples that were married this year were all super cool to work with!  I have been inspired by their love for each other and that really helps us put together an inspiring film.  We worked with many new vendors this year and it was a joy to work alongside so many professionals.  We had  some Friday weddings, and even a few Sunday weddings, which was a welcomed change.  My team & I pulled off an amazing feat (not really, but I think so!)! We shot three weddings in two consecutive days.  It was a bit crazy, and trust me, I had a hard time getting out of bed Monday morning, but I enjoyed every minute of it!  Would I do it again..?  Of course, but I would make sure I have some extra Ibuprofen with me and next time I’ll be wearing ice packs!

My last wedding of 2013 was at the beautiful Hillbrook Country Club, we had a great time celebrating with Josh & Lindsey! Plus they had an AMAZING S’mores Bar!  We hope to have their film ready to view soon so stayed tuned!

A few weeks ago, I took my wife and kids to see Christmas lights.  Now these aren’t just ordinary Christmas lights, these lights were magical!  They synchronized to the music and changed colors.  It was almost like being at a Trans-Siberian Orchestra show on a much smaller budget minus the pyro!  As my children sang along to Frosty the Snowman, with smiles on their faces, I quietly observed the lights twinkle in my childrens’ eyes.  While holding my wife’s hand, it was that moment that I relived all of these memories of this year.  I remained silent and took it in, with a smile on my face and tear in my eye.

That moment froze in time as I reflected for those few seconds, but I also took a moment to look forward at the many more memories being created with family & friends.  I cherish these times.  I hope you all do the same.  Whether it’s Christmas, or any special holiday that you celebrate, may you create awesome memories with the ones you love.

Make it Magical & Be Merry!
