Wedding Date on Oct 7, 2017

Mitch and I met during a documentary filmmaking course traveling through India. At the time, I had no video background and was getting frustrated working on projects with a learning curve. Mitch, on the other hand, was one of the few who actually had experience in the area, so I naturally gravitate towards him for help. Instantly, a spark of attraction grew when we realized how well we worked together, and we both agreed that we had never felt more on the same page as someone before. My frustration slowly diminished knowing that spending more time working on projects and learning editing programs, meant spending more time with Mitch. Every evening he would spend hours on the computer patiently teaching me all his editing tricks, and then we would sneak on the rooftop overlooking the city of New Delhi and talking about anything and everything the whole night through. We started dating shortly after that, and moved to California together 3 years later. My passion for video still remained strong, and I decided to start a wedding videography business upon moving. Watching real love captured on video, has always reminded me of us and of how big a role video played in our own love story. Because I’m around weddings for a living, I knew I wanted to have something more intimate that wasn't at your typical venue. I have an art and design background, so my dream was to find a well designed house with a stunning yard. My mom and I scanned home rental sites for months, praying that somehow the perfect home would pop up and they would allow a wedding to be held there. It seemed impossible, but one day we found the perfect place! Villa Montara, is an architectural dream nestled on a ocean cliffside in Montara, CA. The grounds are full of simplistic art, and the interior is a designers playground. I wanted the day to feel relaxed, and the focus to be on the stunning property and view. The few design elements I did bring in, were things I ended up making like the welcome sign, and our alter that was in the shape of a tripod. Mixing organic movement with simple modern-geometric shapes has always been my signature go-to, and I’m so happy that this design concept translated so strong on our wedding day!
