that love will follow forever: Emma + Ben’s wedding day at Ojai Valley Inn from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

Today, I am going to give you a forewarning – Get out your tissues!  This story, this family, and this couple, is why we feel films are so important in capturing real emotion.   It is quite the journey Emma and Ben have been on together.  In that, includes losing Emma’s mom and more recently, losing Emma’s dad.  At the reception, Emma’s brother reads a letter that their dad wrote, while spending his last week with them.  A year ago, they had a private ceremony, just them, so that Emma’s dad could walk her down the aisle before he passed.  (Hand me that tissue box.)  The choices Emma and Ben made to honor their families and loved ones was full of grace.  I cannot even imagine the true emotion that each and everyone involved in this wedding felt on this day.  I can only hope that we have captured the love, the grace, and the memories with from the inside out.  Emma and Ben, you two are a class act and we are so full of joy watching the two of you together, celebrating such a deep love and friendship.  Grab your loved one, hold them tight, and enjoy an a film full of love that is sure to ignite that sappy side in the best way possible.

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!
