"Bees are essential to life, just as she is essential to mine." Can we just cue the tears here?! These are some of Dan's words about Katie, and they could not be more lovely. He calls her his bumblebee, and when you watch their film you can all see why <3
Dan and Katie love each other -- and we mean loooove! There is such a tenderness between them that we had the honor of seeing on their wedding day, a tenderness that seemed to say, "My heart is safe with you." You can see it in the way they dance together, the way the steal glances, and in their heartfelt vows. These two weren't just ready to marry each other, it was like they were ready to melt right into one another and happily live as one.
In honor of their sweet love, we talked about some of our favorite tidbits we learned about them and highlights from their wedding day (which you can see for yourself above!):
- Dan secretly learned to dance so he could woo Katie on the dance floor at Seattle country bar The Little Red Hen.
- Katie's grandma loved Dan so much (from the moment she met him!) that she wished he could be her boyfriend!
- Katie has an incredible smile and eyes to die for -- just watch their film and tell us we're wrong! (Hint: We're not!)
There's a lot of emotions running through Katie and Dan's wedding film, just like there was on their wedding day. We're grateful we got to be a part of such a special day. Thank you for having us, Katie + Dan! Enjoy your film!

Two days. Two cultures. One incredible love. Here's a sneak peek into the magical world of Simi + Lance. <3
We feel so lucky that Hannah + Mike chose us to be a part of their wedding day! There was so much love, laughter and amazing dancing (that father/daughter dance!) that we left there with huge smiles on our faces and our hearts bigger than before we arrived!
There is such a sweetness to the love Hannah + Mike share, and we were beyond touched by the way they so obviously adore one another. Each and every speech their friends and family gave could attest to this, and it's one of our favorite things to be able to highlight the kind and loving words of speeches in their film. It's our greatest hope that they'll watch this today and more times than they can count throughout the years and remember the joy, celebration and love that surrounded them on their wedding day.
Enjoy every moment, Hannah + Mike! It was a gift to create this for you!
