Becca + Will _ Toledo Loves Love

Toledo Ohio, to me, is one of the most beautiful places to have a wedding. Awesome city skyline, original graffitied allies to shoot breath taking film and photos. Toledo truly loves love. It just worked for Becca and Will, because Becca truly loves loving Will, and Will Loves loving Becca and they both love the fact that they love loving love with loads of love. Love loves lovers who are head over heal in love with love. You get the point ;) haha..I love it. sorry had to that just one more time.

Joy + Chris _ and She said…YES!

When a marriage proposal starts with, Will You and ends with, YES, in an instant a new family is born. The wheels of legacy begin to take shape and generation follows soon after. For Joy and Chris, they saw that in an instant. How? They seen it in each others eyes, felt it in their hugs and tasted it in their first kiss. There is power in the simple word of…YES!

I made it on TV!

Checkout this interview I did on a syndicated talk show called Full Plate! The show broadcasts in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and yes…in the Caribbean! Maybe I could talk about wedding filmmaking at the Atlantis Resort!

Stephanie + David _ A Time for Super Hero’s

Now when you read any comic or see a movie about super hero’s the hero is usually quite, dark, mysterious. Not the case for these two. They didn’t need masks. They were genuine, they were all smiles. No darkness, no mystery. They were super heroes to their loved ones around them. Most importantly, these were heroes to each other, for one rescued the other. You have to watch this epic super hero trailer!

Top 5 Amazing Moments in Wedding Filmmmaking

I just had to share with you 5 amazing moments I get the privilege to capture at just about every wedding. Either one or all of these moments will happen on your day. Then in a blink that moment is gone. You can’t watch it or hear it again. That is unless I’m there. I’ve been making wedding films since I was 16 and I’m now 33. So I’ve been doing this for sometime now and I love every minute of it!

In that time, I’ve learned how to capture a wedding day without directing you or getting in the way. You both literally write the screenplay of your wedding day. I would love to capture your amazing moments too.

There are still a few dates left in 2014 and 2015 is filling up fast. I only book one wedding a day so my focus is you and your story.

Email me at Doug@CrossingRiverWeddings.com

I hope your date is still available!

Leah + Daniel _ Jump’in for Joy!

One word that kept coming to my mind as I captured this couples beautiful day was Joyful! You could just feel their joy. It clung thick in the air & everyone around them just took it all in & they became intoxicated by it. Joyful bliss! The kind of joy that makes you jump on the bed, yeah, that kind of joy.

Kasey + Adam _ Nothing Like Vanilla

Ok, I’ve seen a ton of really cool gifts couples give each other and favors they give to their guest. Kasey and Adam gave each other the coolest gifts (you’ll have to watch the video to see) Then they gave their guest real vanilla extract! Like got real vanilla beans and added unflavored vodka and boom amazing vanilla extract! (My chocolate chip cookies never tasted so good :) nothing about the two of them was run of the mill usual. Not even close to vanilla. More like super man flavored!

Heather + Kaleb _ Pink Guns n Red Hoodies

What can I say about these two. They’re made for each other that’s for sure. They’re good fiends of mine. I knew Kaleb always wore his traditional red hoodie to work. It’s his uniform, he loves his hoodie! I didn’t know that Heather had a “red rider bee-bee gun” except in pink. This day had been a long time coming and seeing the marriage of these two was perfect like peanut butter and jelly. Or Pink Guns and Red Hoodies :) Enjoy their Sneak Peek!

Kelly + Jason _ Salon Approved Love

Had an absolute blast with this couple. Started the day out at the salon with Kelly and her girls.
Then it was off to an awesome little church, like something out of TV show Little House on the Prairie.
The air was crisp, but not cold. Just enough to cold to have a little hold on you.
Reception had just the right amount of bounce and the band had the volume and style down pat.
Needless to say it was….well, you’ve all seen the commercials for the hair product that’s “salon approved” right?
