Wedding in DC

Lucy + Cyril wedding at the Oatlands Historic House and Gardens

As fall finally graced us with its presence, I travelled to Virginia to film a timeless and elegant wedding of Lucy and Cyril! Lucy and Cyril originally met at work - as consultants in DC. Both had strong opinions about not wanting to date someone they worked with, but obviously made an exception and took a risk to get to know each other, and it paid off. There isn't one thing that makes them perfect for each other - it's that they are very different, but have unique commonalities. Lucy and Cyril trusted me with their most special day cinematography and I am so excited to share their wedding highlight video! I think it portrays the newlyweds just as I got to know and respect them. I was honored to film this romantic and mixed tradition wedding. Lucy and Cyril, I would like to congratulate You again and wish the best of luck!

Monique + Kanten Wedding at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner

Amazing how love sometimes is just around the corner. Well Monique and Kanten were neighbours! During September of 2012 in Arlington, VA, Monique Young walked into a job interview, there sat two men; one was Kanten Wooten, the HR Manager. The interview went well and Monique was hired for the position. During employment orientation Kanten and Monique discussed future ambitions such as purchasing a home. Minutes into the conversation while reflecting on the past they both realized they attended the same elementary school, Oakcrest Elementary. A month later, Kanten informed Monique about a new home buying program which would assist her just as it assisted him with purchasing a home. As a result, Kanten found a great opportunity to purchase new construction property and shared this information with Monique. Monique toured the model home in the neighborhood and instantly fell in love! Monique was so excited and appreciative for all the information shared by Kanten that she called and left him a voicemail stating "guess what, we gonna be neighbors!!" Little did they know, this would be the start of a wonderful and dynamic friendship. On Thursday December 25th 2014, while being sick with a stomach virus, Kanten surprised Monique during family dinner by asking her to be his wife. She, of course, said YES and thus begins their journey of two becoming one.
Monique and Kanten got married at the most wonderful Hilton McLean Tysons Corner! Reception area was filled with outstanding decorations and flowers by Design by Oochay and Elle Nicole Events. GlambyDeya helped Monique to look flawless for her special day! And Claudia Oliver Photography froze the most special moments in the happy couple's lives.

Victoria + Ben Wedding at the Ft Myer Officers Club

Ben and Ana Victoria met at the the grad student bible study at the George Washington University Newman Center fall semester of 2013. Ben says it was love at first sight. They quickly found out that they were both law students at the same law school (GW). So, they started to hang out as friends. By spring semester, they were dating. Within a year, they were engaged. Ben and Ana Victoria have a passion for God, family, and friends. They truly believe God brought them together. They complement the other so well. Ben is the most kindest, generous, talented person Ana Victoria knows. Meanwhile, Ana Victoria is the brightest, funniest, and most beautiful person Ben knows. They both have a passion for languages and music. Ana Victoria grew up speaking Spanish and English and Ben has been eagerly learning Spanish. He even spoke in Spanish when he proposed to Ana Victoria at her graduation ceremony dinner! 

Ana Victoria grew up dancing ballet, tap, jazz, and salsa and Ben grew up playing multiple instruments. He is a wiz at guitar! They are looking forward to a lifetime of traveling, dancing and spending time with their families and friends.
