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.”

Liz + Jeff: until the end of time from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

What better setting than under the string lights for Liz + Jeff’s love to shine so bright. When true love is in the air, you can feel it. The smiles, the intricate looks, the energy between the two of them made this day complete! We enjoyed this beautiful outdoor reception where their love lit up like the desert stars!

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!

what begins in Croatia ends in love: Ashley + Taylor from Terranea Resort from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

We have a bit of overseas love advice for you today: What happens in Croatia does not stay in Croatia! ¬†This is where Ashley + Taylor’s modern love story began. ¬†Their chemistry is evident (note that first look – one of the most candid moments). ¬†A first look is one of our favorite moments of the day as its one of the only moments where the couple really gets to be alone and just enjoy each other and express their excitement for the day they are about to endure. ¬†We loved every minute of their day and the beautiful vows they shared with each other at Terranea Resort!

a love that’s undeniably true: Brittany + Mike from the Montage Laguna from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.

“There’s a power…¬†It’s silent. You can’t see it. You can’t hear it. You can’t smell it. ¬†You can’t even touch it. But you can feel it. And its the most powerful thing on earth. Its emotion. ¬†Have as much good time as you can have because you’ve only got so much.” ¬†What a telling line from the Father of the Bride. ¬†This description fits Brittany + Mike perfectly. ¬†They have one of those quiet connections that you can just feel when you’re around the two of them. ¬†Cheers to a beautiful couple and their¬†gorgeous day¬†in Laguna Beach!
