becoming Mrs. Toilolo: Stephanie + Levine’s Wedding Trailer from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

The epitome of beauty inside and out is right here with Stephanie and Levine!  These are two of the most beautiful and humble souls you will ever meet.  On the one hand, we have NFL Tight End, Levine Toilolo, who just competed in the Superbowl for the Falcons.  And on the other you have Stephanie, a former NBA Dancer, model, and recording actress.  Not once did these two mention any of this to us, they only mentioned how important it is to capture their families and their love for each other.  When you see these two together, you see a beautiful, passionate couple that is head over heels in love.  When you are with this couple, you realize that all the beauty is shining from within.  The way they love each lights up a room.  And in this case, a ballroom of people ready to dance and celebration the true meaning of coming together as one family.  And don’t miss the Taualuga!

Lexie + Robbie’s Magical Malibu Destination Wedding from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

It was a simply perfect day in Malibu, CA. for an absolutely incredible weekend for Lexie and Rob. Everyone flew in from the east coast for this California celebration and I don’t think anyone was quite ready for what they walked into. The weekend started with a welcome party at Sony Studios, followed by a beautiful beach day at Casa Del Mar. That night included the most dreamy twinkle light tent dinner on the ocean in Santa Monica. And next was the big day. From the gorgeous chuppah to the orchestra lined walk way to the ridiculously beautiful tent reception, and ending the night with a silent headphone rave, it was all equally amazing. We all loved being around these extraordinary families and most of all, we so enjoyed capturing Lexie and Rob’s romantic love story. You had us at “he rode up on a Vespa.”

the best is yet to come: Sue Jean + Kenny from the Langham Pasadena from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

Sue Jean + Kenny are the type of couple that just make you smile.  From the vows, to planting their apple tree, to piggyback rides at their paebeak ceremony, to their amazing first dance, these two never stopped smiling.  We loved being there to capture all the happiness that these two bring each other.  And Kenny’s excitement before the first look…our favorite!

it all started with a wink: Chelsea + Jason’s beautiful winter wedding at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

These two have a quiet presence, but you can feel the love when they look into each other’s eyes.  We had so much fun capturing their winter wedding in Santa Barbara.  And that sunset!!  One of the most beautiful sunsets on the beach and we were able to get out there to enjoy those vibrant colors just in time.  And perhaps Jason stole the show at the reception with his adorable poem that he wrote for Chelsea!

Alexis + Isaiah Trailer from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

These two.  When I think of a love that shines through actions, I think of Alexis and Isaiah.  From the semi-shy, but fun-loving sides, to the quiet humorous sides that the two of them share, these two are a perfect match for each other in so many ways.  The weekend began where the proposal happened (insert doggie bag story here) – a beloved place.  We had a blast at Toscana Country Club starting with fun facts on Friday night and through dancing underneath their beautifully decorated tent reception.  We enjoyed this fantastic weekend and hope you enjoy this film with equally great people!

Watching Blair and Murphy’s tall love story is a sure way to be inspired to survive a long distance relationship.  These two were kept apart for 7 years, living in places ranging all over the globe.  While Murphy followed his Olympic dreams (and getting that medal in Rio, I might add), Blair worked on her law degree.  Their best and worse days were spent at the airport, but somehow their connection prevailed over all challenges.  This story is an inspiration from two amazing, dedicated, motivated, kind-hearted people.  We so enjoyed seeing this fall-inspired destination wedding weekend unfold!
