“An entire party dedicated to how lucky I am? Isn’t she beautiful?” Words from the groom on this incredibly fun day at Montage Laguna Beach with Chelsea + James!  And words from the bride? “James, you’re a babe.” I mean, how can we not love these two.

Jessica + Duncan Trailer from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

When they are together, its just MAGIC.  That’s the word Jessica’s dad used to describe the way these two light up a room.  Its so eminent that Jessica + Duncan were meant to be together.  After meeting on a foggy day in London, they decided 5,000 miles distance couldn’t keep them apart.  Their connection is magnetic and we had so much fun capturing their special day at the Montage.  Watch this Trailer and try, just try not to smile.  (Its not possible!)  Enjoy these engaging families with this magical couple!

I am to be with you: Joanna + Andre’s Los Angeles Destination Wedding from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

What do you get when you put a young, bright-eyed Chinese girl with a handsome European man with a funny accent? Well, in Joanna and Andre’s case, you get the most playful couple, that even oceans couldn’t keep apart.  These two met, more than once, overseas during work events.  As Joanna Years went by until they finally crossed that line, and they have been inseparable ever since.  Being around these two will make you want to giggle, enjoy life, and even make you want to cheers with a shot of Jägermeister!  These two have an amazing story that will have you smiling with them every step of the way and then wanting to shout #biereme!  And on that note…

Jaynee + Karl Trailer from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

When it feels like something out of a fairytale, perhaps it’s because it is.   Jaynee + Karl’s gorgeous day at Pelican Hill was nothing less than a dream wedding.  While this stunning bride had the most beautiful flowers and beautiful reception, most importantly, she has love from the man of her dreams.  And that’s what real fairytales are all about.  Don’t miss this once upon a time film!
