Anna & Spenser were childhood friends before ending up here today. It was fitting that both of them spent the morning getting ready at Anna’s childhood home on Lake Oswego outside of Portland. The ceremony was held at the Agnes Flanagan Chapel at Lewis and Clark college, followed by the reception at the Lake Oswego Country Club.

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.

This wedding has been in the works for a long time! We met Johnna about 2 years ago when she started the wedding planning process. On the East Coast typically people need to reserve more time for wedding planning because most of the time vendors book well in advance. And Keith is a police officer so his schedule isn’t the most flexible in the world. But often times when more time and preparation is put into an event, it’s just going to make that event that much more special. And what a better way to start out the day than opening two bottles of near 20 year old Don Perignon! Although the guys were drinking theirs out of red solo cups, but still, it’s the occasion that makes it special!
Johnna and Keith got married at the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark New Jersey. The reception was held at Seasons in Washington Township.

Moetic finally had the chance to capture a wedding in Hawaii. We feel very blessed to get to travel as much as we do. In fact, if it weren’t for the wonderful couples who love our films, we may not get the chance to visit some of the places we have. So we feel privileged to get to work with so many great people. Esther & Kenny are friends with a previous Moetic couple, Melissa & Eric , and when they watched their film they decided a wedding film was an important investment.
They contacted us back in October of 2012. Esther was living in Vancouver at the time while Kenny was living in Dallas, and their family and friends were all over the place. So Hawaii seemed like a fitting place to get married! If your guests are going to be traveling anyways, why not go somewhere worth traveling too? While getting to know them we found that much of their relationship was long distance, so we knew their wedding was going to be a special event. It was going to be a time where all the important people in their lives were going to be in the same place, and that doesn’t happen often.
They got married at the beautiful Four Season’s resort Hualalai, on the Kona side of Hawaii’s big island. The Kona side is interesting. When you leave the airport and drive up the main highway you see nothing but lava rock as far as the eye can see, not what one might expect from Hawaii. But Hualalai is tucked away in a nice lush area with beautiful beaches! We had the opportunity to work again with Junshien & Sarah, photographers with Junshien International Photography. They are great people and great photographers! You can check out Esther & Kenny’s photography blog post here.

Laura and Matt got married at the beautiful Langdon Farms in Aurora Oregon. While rain may be common during the month of August in Oregon, it didn’t phase the beautiful couple one bit; and when the sun finally burned through the clouds, it made for an amazing ceremony!

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!

We’ve known Melissa and Eric for a long time now. We booked their wedding a long time ago when we were still living in NYC. We’ve also filmed a couple of their friends weddings as well, one of whom may be in this film . So when we showed up on their day, it instantly felt like we were in the company of friends.
It’s not hard at all to see how much they love each other. While both of them were a bit nervous earlier in the day, it didn’t stop them from having a total blast. Not only are they super fun people, but their entire bridal party was so vibrant and joyful as well. The best way to describe their wedding is simple, IT WAS FUN!
We had the privilege of working with photographer Junshien Lau of Junshien International Photographers.

12-15 January, 2012 // The Viceroy Resort, Anguilla
It’s hard to describe how moving our trip was to Anguilla. We had the privilege to spend a bit of time with Angela and Mike in New York before their wedding. Mike shared about his love for Anguilla, and how special of a place it was to both he and Angela. It was the perfect place for them to celebrate their marriage. But being in a beautiful place was only a minor part of this amazing experience. It was spending the few days with their family and close friends that reminded us of how special love is, and how valuable our relationships are with those we love.
The Viceroy Anguilla is one of the most beautiful resorts in the world with one of the friendliest staffs we’ve ever witnessed.
We got to work along side photographer Kelly Guenther of Kelly Guenther Studio, she was a total blast to work with! | nycweddingphotographer.com/

Jamie and Matt got married on the most beautiful day in November in New York City. Nothing quite beats the rooftop view at the Cooper Square Hotel, and the beautiful Angel Orensanz Foundation was the perfect fit for their ceremony. Jamie and Matt were both so laid back and relaxed that at times we almost forgot we were in busy NYC!

Aletheia+Ken were married at Mt. Hood Bed and Breakfast just outside of Portland, Oregon. They enjoyed a morning bike ride and dealt with a bit of rain amid the beautiful fall Oregon sunshine. All that, mixed with their smiles, helped create an amazing story of their wedding day.

It was the day Hurricane Irene passed through New York and New Jersey, and that’s the day Laili and Paul celebrated their marriage.
Laili and Paul live in Switzerland, so we only had the chance to meet with Laili, along with Paul’s mother before their wedding. We could tell right away that they were amazing people and that their wedding would be so much fun. Little did we know that Hurricane Irene had plans on their wedding day, but NYC doesn’t slow down for anything, and neither did Laili and Paul.
We also had the privilege to shoot along side Jeff Tisman, which was a blast. He had them posing in the middle of the street in front of dozens of NYC taxi cabs.
