Real Wedding: Rachael and Jeremy's Wedding by Gayle Driver Photography (12)

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Gayle Driver Photography is full of beautiful, natural elements and thoughtful details. We hope you love it as much as we do! Here’s what Gayle has to say about this wedding:

Rachael & Jeremy are married! Their lovely outdoor wedding took place in the shade under the majestic oak trees on the lawn at Weaver’s Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The weather was just perfect for an outdoor wedding. Well, OK, it might have been just a bit humid, but I would take a little humidity over rain any day for an outdoor wedding. Rachael and Jeremy decided on a rustic theme for their wedding since the bride and groom both love the out-of-doors.

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Josh's Hawaiian Wedding by Karma Hill Photography (12)

Aloha! This gorgeous island wedding comes to us from Karma of Karma Hill Photography, based in Maui. Here’s what she has to say about this wedding and the happy couple:

Jen and Josh are the sweetest, most laid back people and they deserved getting the most amazing Maui sunset we have seen in a long time for their wedding. They didn’t stress one bit when an accident on the only road into Lahaina slowed down all the vendors from getting to their ceremony. Jen and Josh knew it would all work out, and it did! Although their ceremony got a little bit of a late start, there was plenty of time to capture their beautiful ceremony on the shores of Lahaina, Maui and the stunning sunset.

While I’ve quickly learned no two couples are alike, over time I’ve gained enough experience to know the best way to help narrow down the vast array of wedding bands choices out there to help find The One. And it really boils down to three simple questions: color, budget and lifestyle.

Today’s videographer interview is with Anthony of ARAND Video Services based in Pittsburg, CA! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company,  how did you get started?

The vision of ARAND Video Services started when Anthony made a family video for a family reunion in 1996.  The family loved the video so much they then asked him to create a video for all future projects such as Wedding Anniversaries, Birthdays and retirement celebrations.

Anthony met his wife Olivia in 1999 and an instant romance turned into a blissful marriage in 2002.  Once they combined their talents, Anthony soon discovered his wife, Olivia, was also very talented in creativity with her own style and talents using mutli software products to  further enhance photos, that added a unique custom design to fit the client’s needs. Anthony and his wife created classic heirlooms, and as a result, family members shared this couple’s talents with their friends and family members who started soliciting the couple to produce their family video projects.

As the couple embarked on a major career change in 2008, through prayer and direction they  officially founded ARAND Video Services. They are Christians and discovered they were both blessed with a vision, so their mission focus was to help customers create a professional video without having the concern of being charged for every added expense or any hidden cost. They then create a logo “It’s not totally about us — It’s about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as He is in control of our walk in how we treat our customers.  They then discovered their  company’s name was given to them to help remind others that the Lord will return to rebuild His new Temple. “After Resurrection A New Destiny” will be in place!  ~ Revelations 21:1-8 ~  They stand by their strong beliefs to treat their customers the way the Lord expects fairness in every business deal, and they work hard to bless their clients with fond memories of how they can help them accomplish their vision.
