Beneath the brilliance of a hundred twinkling lights, draped by the woods that shelter Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California, Julie and Brandon declared I do on July 9th, 2016. This official seal of love and commitment was a long time coming—five years, two months & eight days—to be exact. And, although their longtime dream became reality at last, it was hard not to believe we weren’t dreaming anyway with all of the magic in the air that day. It began, as expected, in the most incredible location: a Woodland Hills mansion, formerly owned by none other than Frank Sinatra. The Prince Weddings team caught up with Julie and Brandon here, and were thrilled to capture the preparations of the day in such an impeccable home. Following the final spritz of perfume, the last laces to be fastened, and the wonderful gifts exchanged, it was time to make it over to Calamigos Ranch. We find ourselves inspired every time we come to this stunning estate, as it is rich with adornments and so welcoming in their hospitality. Julie and Brandon secured The Pavilion At North Point within the Ranch, which comes equipped with a beautiful reception and ceremony site, a vast field, and a stunning ferris wheel—iconic to the grandeur of the Ranch. Our Photography and Cinematography teams were eager to capture all the special moments of the day, with Alex and Thamer leading the Photography side, Nathan and Edwin the Cinematography side, Sharelle at the helm for the SDE (Same Day Edit), and Elizabeth assisting them all. And through everyone’s determination and preparedness – between us, the coordinators, vendors, venue, and of course the newlyweds themselves – the day was a magical success. The first kiss as husband and wife was given, the dances were had, and the SDE was presented as the cherry on top of a brilliant day. Julie and Brandon even went as far as acquiring the rights to have their favorite song in the film, “Our Song” by the very talented Ron Pope. Wedding days like Julie and Brandon’s remind us why we love to do what we do at Prince Weddings—there’s simply nothing like the magic we help create with the many wonderful couples we have the pleasure of working with. Congratulations Julie and Brandon!

Coronado Community Center Wedding | Tony + Tara

Capturing some of life’s most tender moments is a reward that keeps on giving for us at Prince Weddings, but it’s the warm welcoming of various cultures and traditions —the insight we collect from them— that is truly a priceless honor. On December 5th, 2015, Elizabeth was welcomed into Tara’s San Diego home to capture their Baci, or Lao Ceremony: a traditional Southeast Asian practice celebrating such things as birth, monkhood, or weddings, or in this case, the beautiful marriage between Tony and Tara. Too rarely are we able to connect with a couple as deeply as we did Tony & Tara, and it was our absolute pleasure to have Prince Wedding videographers Nathan & Jamie come out again the following day to cover their full wedding ceremony. The day began at Glorietta Bay Hotel in Coronado, a brilliant venue overlooking the San Diego coastline, where we met up with the two making their final preparations for the day. Before we knew it we were at the pristine Coronado Community Center, grounds we would surely love to photo or videography more often! With the vows read, and the drop-kiss exchanged, it was time for the reception—and what a party that was! A highlight of which were two lion dancers that undoubtedly stole the show. Tony & Tara’s celebration over the two days amounted to one of our most cherished Wedding experiences, a true festivity of Life, Love, Tradition, and Happiness.

In love, there are moments you feel so lucky to be with your partner, that it can only be credited to God’s doing—that He created that person simply for you. We at Prince Weddings felt that way about Wael and Nardine. Their marriage was the tying of a knot etched into stone, waiting to be made official, and we were honored to be a part of it. The day began at the Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach, where our wedding videography team consisting of Nathan, Evan, Zach, and Frank met up with the couple for the finishing preparations. The gifts were exchanged, makeup applied and ties fastened, as it was time at last for Wael and Nardine to head to their ceremony. We ventured to the extravagant St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church for what would be a grand ceremony. Endearing ‘til the very end, the ceremony had us anxious for the real celebration, as it was back to the Hyatt Regency for the best party in town. Dancers galore, everybody singing, eating, and drinking—the most ideal way to celebrate Love in all its glory and passion. Congratulations to Wael and Nardine, may they have many happy anniversaries to come.

A Prince Weddings Special Engagement session! Not only is this Diana & Jeff’s second session with Prince Weddings, it was hosted in Seattle, Washington. Diana and Jeff flew our photographers Thamer & Nathan to capture all of the Seattle Love!  We believe there’s always more within a wedding photograph or video than meets the eye, and that’s precisely the case here—as Seattle harbors a deep, intimate significance for the couple. Thamer & Nathan joined Diana & Jeff at their favorite Seattle spots.   The Engagement Photo Session included the Seattle Great Wheel, the Experience Music Project Museum, and of course the Space Needle. Destination Weddings and Engagements don’t come often enough, so you can believe our photographers soaked in every minute. It was our pleasure to capture not one, but both telling locales for Diana & Jeff, before their gorgeous wedding comes around this fall.

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. Enter McKenzie & Evan. Their charm is bright enough to warm any room, and we were honored to have our Wedding Videographer Brian capture that very charm at its best for their Camarillo wedding. The celebrations began at the elegant Camarillo Residence Inn, where the couple applied the finishing touches for the day. After the ties were fastened and the foundation set, it was time at last to meet McKenzie and Evan, and all their family and friends at the idyllic McCormick Home Ranch in Camarillo. Their gorgeous grounds set a perfect backdrop for the couple’s big day, and we wouldn’t be upset if we shot a wedding there every weekend. After all the tears, laughter, drinking and dancing, it was time unfortunately to say goodbye to the beautiful newlyweds McKenzie and Evan. Thank you to them on behalf of everyone here at Prince Weddings, and congratulations again!
