Stoneback Family Film @Stoneback Family Estate

We are so freaking excited!

Last Thursday we spent the most wonderful afternoon with the most beautiful family!

Funny backstory, actually: this film has been in the plans for about four YEARS! Bayle contacted us in 2014 after seeing a few of our wedding films, and, having fallen in love with our style, wanted to figure out how we could work together to create a family film.

A weird fall (where everything died too quickly), a new pregnancy, then baby duty, left us still in contact every year, but no definitive plans...

Until Valentine's Day of this year - this is the year we were going to make it happen.

And, boy, did we! Not only does Bayle have incredible style and is enchantingly beautiful, so does and is the rest of her family!

Here, after four years of teasing, we finally got together on her TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY last Thursday, and we began to create their gorgeous family film full of love, laughter, and happily ever after:

Here's to an eternity of love and joy with more to come! Happiest of Anniversaries, Bayle + Jason, and happy union to us for finally coming together to create something extra special. 

Here's to Bayle, Jason, Charlie, Parker, Reed, + Ford! Love you all so much ❤

Megan + Kevin @The Carriage House in the Sparkling Snow Storm

When we met Megan on a hot summer afternoon in front of the famous Twin Kiss in South Jersey... we had no idea that come January 7, 2017 we would be in the middle of one of the biggest Snow Storms of the year!

While we were all nervous as we watched the snow storm get heavier and the sparkling crystals of the white snow blanket everything, we couldn't deny the gorgeous magic the weather created for this stunning wedding.

Grab some hot chocolate, get cozy in front of your fireplace, and let this incredible Love Story transport you to a Winter Wonderland.

Erin + Kevin Sweeter Love Story @Flander's Hotel in Ocean City, New Jersey

October 18, 2014, literally the last most perfect day of the year. It was about 75° F and truly perfect in every way besides the weather!
Erin's contagious laughter and pure joy, made the moments she and Kevin shared truly magical
Erin + Kevin are clearly made for each other ❤
This day was never short on laughter, joy, and some seriously awesome dance moves from everyone involved!

Set in the most romantic backdrop of Ocean City, New Jersey, the ocean breeze, the playful waves, and the warm sunshine truly blessed this amazing day.
There is nothing more special than capturing the moments of two souls truly meant to be together for all of eternity.

To many beautiful years with True Love, Mr. + Mrs. Malinowski ❤

Stephanie + Sean's Wedding Films @Bear Creek Mountain Resort

SweetStart.us ❤ Weddings@SweetStart.us

October 5, 2014, a chilly, but magical day set in the picturesque Bear Creek Mountain Resort.

Beautiful wood details, epic cathedral ceilings... and, of course, cozy fireplaces perfect for a chilly day at the ski lodge with a mug of creamy hot chocolate!

Stephanie + Sean are clearly made for each other ❤ 

We knew that as soon as we met them and knew immediately that filming their wedding day would be an awesome honor... and it really, truly was 

Stephanie is the heart of their beautiful family, Chase (their beautiful son) is the sweetest bond, and Sean is the rock and strong arms that holds them all close together.

From the incredible golden sun filled ceremony, to the reception party of a lifetime, this wedding has it all! The fun and romantic blue and pink details, along with the soft romantic glow of the the twinkling lights that add a spark of magic to every moment of the sweet and fun reception.

End it with an amazing sparkler exit, and you have yourself a wedding that is not only special, but cozy, fun, and full of deep romantic love from all involved.

To many beautiful years with True Love, Mr. + Mrs. Tomlinson

Trending 2015 Save the Date is not what you would expect...

So most Save the Dates are sent through snail-mail + are made on your run-of-the-mill cardstock.

Sure, some have gold foil, + some have pictures of you during your engagement session, but the latest series of Save the Dates? They look NOTHING like you can imagine.


Save the Dates for 2015 have gone into the cinematic era of filmmaking. That's right: 2015 Save the Dates are films you can share through facebook + email, and what you save on postage, you gain in personalized story-telling of how you two are perfect for each other - even before the wedding!

Now this is definitely for a couple that is looking to do something different + totally unique.

Not only does this film act as your digital Love Story, it can be personalized in any and every way AND it really shows the personality you two share and helps anyone who has not yet met your spouse-to-be really get a sense of who he or she really is.

It's a fun way to express your love and an even better way to capture your love before you become Mr & Mrs.

The best part is no one will throw it away and it can be appreciated for years to come.

In a world where everything feels so temporary, isn't it nice to have a Save the Date that matches your eternal love...? A Save the Date that will last forever.

Check out the sweet feature New Jersey Bride did on the Save the Date we did for our gorgeous couple, Katie + Rich.
