your heart moves mountains: Leah + Arvin’s Downtown Los Angeles Wedding from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

What a beautiful day in downtown Los Angeles!  Leah and Arvin’s love shines through their every word.  I can’t get over how romantic their notes to each other are and how natural these two are together.  So many tears and so much joy all day with their closest family and friends.  We can only hope this Trailer evokes every one of those emotions!

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!

Alexis + Brandon Highlight Film from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

Alexis + Brandon are one amazingly dynamic duo. These two LOVE. They love hard. They love their friends and family. They love fun. They love each other to the core.  They love fun.  You read that right, fun deserved to be in their twice. With an eclectic wedding party and the most vibrant family and friends, these two completely shined at Pelican Hill.  Everyone could learn from the way these two love and it’s easy to see why everyone gravitates towards them.  If you’re reading this right now, guarantee they want you to raise a glass and celebrate with them.  Congratulations to a couple I adore, Mr. and Mrs. Antin!
