For those of you who have never been to the Oregon coast, you’re missing out. It’s truly an amazing part of the pacific northwest. Rebecca & Brad got married in Cannon Beach, just west of Portland a little ways. They actually live in Las Vegas, so it’s apparent how special the Oregon coast is to them that they’d choose to have their wedding there.
Their day was simple and laid back. Wedding prep, ceremony and reception was held had the Sea Sprite Retreat. Brad and his groomsmen drove down to the beach in the morning to hit wooden golf balls in to the ocean. Rebecca relaxed with her girls and exchanged clever gifts with Brad.
We had the privilege to work with photographer Kirk Mastin, as well as some awesome vendors like Koi Fusion (thanks for the incredible fooood!) and the best photobooth in the biz… Happymatic Awesome time.
We hope you enjoy their film!

Crystal & Edison decided to elope rather than having a wedding. They were so excited and felt so strongly for each other they realized they just cared more about being married than planning a large wedding. And planning a large wedding would prove to be difficult because most of their family, and their parents live in China. Eventually their parents heard about this idea but insisted on being their for the marriage ceremony. So both sets of parents made a visit from China to the Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast, and what once was set to be an elopement became a small wedding.

A short drive outside of Springfield Oregon, settled in the wilderness is a beautiful little place called Tipi Village Retreat. It was a place Tabitha and Eric new they could escape to, in order to connect with family, friends, each other , and themselves. Immersing themselves in nature was the perfect way for them to prepare for their wedding.
The ceremony was just as beautiful as the scenery and it was a joy to see so many children running and playing. It’s a wedding we’ll never forget!

Sweet! We were excited to see that one of our films from last summer with Ryan and Molly got picked up by The Knot. The wedding took place at Zenith Vineyard, an amazing wedding location just outside of Salem, Oregon. Check it out here.
Here is Megan and Derek’s wedding film trailer. They were married Sunday evening at Sweet Cheeks Winery, just outside of Eugene.
It was a beautiful wedding and tons of fun to film. We had a 3-person crew from Vivid Wedding Films, capturing both still and motion pictures (photos to come soon to the blog). Derek and I go way back (middle school, I believe) and Megan and I actually worked a few days together at the ol’ Baskin & Robbins (Coburg Road, no longer there) when I was in college. Anyways, it made it fun to have so many friends at the wedding – and even seeing other couples there whose weddings we’ve filmed in the past (Jared & Amy, Sef & Cassidy + new baby!, Joe & Megan).
What made filming Jessica and Kenny’s wedding day so fun was the fact that they themselves had an absolute blast! They seemed to ‘skip’ just about every location we took them to and the smiles on their faces never ceased. Here’s their wedding film.
We just hope we were able to capture the joy these two expressed on their special day.
Lots of wedding films happening these days, here is a short trailer for Anne and Eric, we shot Eric’s sister’s wedding last year July on the McKenzie River in Springfield, Oregon. Thanks for the fun guys.
