Tara and Wayne were married on a sunny summer day on the edge of the Pacific ocean. The backdrop of the beautiful ocean, dramatic cliffs and surrounding forest nestled them in the warm embrace of nature as they entered into their union together. The stunning drone footage and sweet, playful clips of the wedding couple and their guests bring a lively energy to this video, and the heartfelt words that they spoke to one another showed the true depth of their love and connection.

When I shared this video with the wedding couple, the bride responded: “WWEEEE LLLOOOOVVEEEE IIIITTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
It made me so happy to receive this message! 🙂

This was a last minute booking – I got the call just a day before the wedding. I put things into high gear, organizing my kit for the wedding, juggling around plans to make it work with my schedule, and getting myself to the Mendocino Coast for the wedding. I’m so glad I did, and that they chose me to be part of their beautiful wedding celebration.
