Sarah & Ozan at Lorimar Winery

December 4th, 2017

It didn’t take long after Sarah joined Ozan’s kickball team in 2013 for him to make his move. A few drinks with the team at Sarah’s favorite watering hole lead to a first date a few days later. An effortless and fun beginning was full of adventures in San Diego ranging from jet skiing to hiking. After a few months, Ozan asked Sarah to join him on an annual summer lake house trip with some of his close friends. It was during this trip, on a quiet canoe ride, that they both realized they had something very special. …AND DECIDED ON FOREVER! Fast forward three years and many adventures later, including sailing around the Caribbean with Ozan as captain and Sarah as his first mate, Sarah once again joined Ozan on that annual lake house trip. Little did she know the big plan he had set in motion. Ozan’s friends distracted Sarah with her wake boarding theme song (Lady Gaga’s Applause) while positioning her at the end of the very same dock where they embarked on that fateful canoe ride long ago. Ozan joined Sarah on the dock, held her hand and said “It was here 3 years ago that we decided to start our adventure together. I think it is fitting that here is where I ask you if you want to continue it with me forever!”

David & Stephanie at The Woodshed

October 6th, 2017

Stephanie and David from Classic Filmworks on Vimeo.

David had tried for four months to take Stephanie out on a proper date since they had only hung out as “friends” watching movies, studying, chatting, and attending many school functions together (David even asked Stephanie if she would go “stag” to a dance with him). Then one day when David was walking Stephanie out to her car after a Greek event, he asked her again “When will you let me take you on a date?” and she said “I will, but it will have to be a group date”.
Their first official date was in October of 2011.They went to Elephant Bar (which they attended alone) and afterwards they went to a pumpkin patch with two of their close friends. It was not until December that year that they officially called themselves boyfriend and girlfriend.

The wedding was at the Woodshed, a fun rustic microbrew venue that reflected their love of beer. Stephanie’s bouquet and the florals even had hops included! Of course their bull dog ‘Boozer’ was part of the ceremony as well!

Rena the beautiful veterinarian and Eric tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony at The estancia in La Jolla. When Eric proposed he had a tag made for their dog’s collar that said “Rena will you marry me?” so Cooper(the dog) actually popped the question on a beach walk!
Kate Auda, their photographer was there to capture the proposal. Since Rena is a vet, it was perfect that their dog was part of the proposal.

Desiree and Abe were such a delightful couple! This is how Abe proposed to Desiree:
Abe proposed to Desiree on her birthday during a surprise trip to Catalina Island. He took her to dinner and asked her to go for a walk on the beach with him. He asked her if she was having a nice birthday? Desiree said yes, he then replied, it’s not over yet…I made you something. He pulled out his phone and told her to look at it. On the phone was an app-made montage of pictures of them throughout their relationship. The last picture was a picture of an engagement ring on his pinky finger. She then looked over and realized he was on his knee, and he looked up at her with the ring and said “Lovie, will you marry me?”

Doy and Flor were each other’s blind dates for prom! And so many years later they are still together. Doy proposed to Flor on the sky tram at the Zoo. We are lucky that her sister was able to capture that moment to add to their video! They had so many fun elements at their reception but one of our favorites was the flip book booth.
