As part of our documentary-style storytelling, we ask couples to share how they’re feeling on the day. Ashley explained that James is her best friend, and while doing so, the tears flowed. The ceremony was emotional too. These are the kinds of priceless moments and memories that only cinematic film can capture; moments that can be treasured and relived forever.

Renee and Shawn knew each other in high school over thirty years ago. They were friends and often locked eyes even back then, but alas it was not the right moment. Each went on with their lives, married, had children of their own and created stellar military careers for themselves. Sadly, both their marriages ended several years ago and with their children grown they started new lives independently…never knowing what would happen next.
