Kylene + Michael _ Soul Mates

The best thing about creating wedding films is I get the privilege to capture unique love. I’ve been capturing weddings since I was 16 and I can honestly tell you no two are the same. They’re unique in every way. How can I best describe it? It’s kind of like, each couples love has it’s own color. When two people who are true soul mates come together they’re colors splash together and this new fresh never before seen color that explodes in sheer radiance. They’re colors were meant to be. Meant to exist.

Julie + Jason _ Love Me Crazy

The one feeling I kept getting over and over again with these two was…crazy! Not nutzo crazy but crazy in love. All they wanted to do was see each other. You saw it in their faces as they read little notes from each other. Then in the writing of their vows. Yes, crazy in love!

Chelsea + Eric _ Epic Happiness

Happy Happy Day! When Chelsea and Eric made it all the way. It was such a happy sight, it made all their friends and family grin with delight. When in fact the day was through, they have a sneak peek trailer to view! A little cheesy, but hey it made me happy ;)

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
Call me or Text me @ 419.346.7979

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.
