McKenzie + Tim | Bell Tower Vineyard Wedding

Share this :   | | | |

McKenzie and Tim had a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Calistoga, CA.  Although, it didn’t start out that way. All morning it was pouring rain, with no sign of it letting up before the ceremony. The the coordinator setup the outside location along with a backup inside location to be safe. Thirty minutes before the ceremony started, the rain stopped, the clouds cleared, and the sun shined bright for this beautiful Napa Ceremony. What really surprised me, was that  McKenzie didn’t fret once about the rain or let it  ruin her morning with her girls. It was almost as if she knew it would stop just in time. We loved working with McKenzie and Tim, we couldn’t have asked for a more picture perfect couple.

We had a blast shooting this wedding along side Michelle Kim Photography. Check out her gorgeous images here. We also enjoyed working with the coordinator Mary Ellen with Off the Beaten Path Weddings. She ran the day without a hitch. I hope that you enjoy their lovely film.

Hello! First of all I'd like to congrats you for the great work you guys are doing in each event covering; the photography, narrative, everything is excellent. I'm from Mexico, I live in Paraguay, my wife is paraguayan, recently came to live in Paraguay in Asuncion, the capital, and I started my business of film maker, and also the videos for weddings.

I love what you do, you guys are all my style, but i'm in the process of learning, so I figured I'd humbly ask for some advice if this is possible ... i would like to know what do you use for filming, to stabilize the image etc. .. .. something that you can share and teach me. Thank you, thank you very much. God Bless You.

I always enjoy watching our movies. I call it movies because it really makes me feel that I am watching a hollywood production when I'm seeing your work. Great wedding movie!
