Wedding at the Mission Inn-Riverside | Melissa + Clarence

Happy mother's day to all the amazing mothers, including ours. You are the reason why the world is a better place.

We love to tell stories, so whenever we get the chance, we go for it. Melissa and Clarence's feature film finished right around this week and so we thought to post just in time for Mother's day!

Meet Melissa and Clarence, who were brought up by their mothers; their heroes. We all know Kevin Durant delivered an amazing speech last week mentioning his mom as the MVP, but Melissa and Clarence did theirs as good as his in September. It is very rare that you get the chance to give tribute to your parents. Melissa and Clarence have taken the chance to deliver it during the toasts. Their speeches were as equally moving and inspirational; a great example of the power of gratitude!

We came all the way from San Francisco to film their wedding as their wedding videographers at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, a national historic landmark. This place is just amazing that we woke up in the morning to go back and tour the area. This is definitely the best place to celebrate your wedding.

To Melissa and Clarence's mom, you guys are MVPs!!! We hope you enjoy their Feature Film. Happy Mother's Day!

OMG!!! As soon as you left that comment on my IG, I had to check my email!
THE VIDEO IS BEYOND BEAUTIFUL!!! I couldn't wait to get home so I watched it in the car while Clarence was driving. I was balling my eyes out! Clarence was just listening in but the audio alone made him cry.  We had to turn around and go back to my sister's to share it and watch it again. OH MY GOSH! We just can't believe how beautiful it is. IT IS PERFECT! It brought us back to the wedding day and all the emotions that came with it.
We LOVE that you guys focused on our Moms for the first few minutes of the video. What a beautiful way to honor them!
Sigmund, Marian and EJ, we can't thank you guys enough for this beautiful gift. We are so BLESSED to have had you guys as our videographers. We all just met the day of the wedding but everything went so smoothly. We barely remember seeing you guys around but the video proves that all of you were behind the scenes capturing the most perfect moments. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
That's it for now. Excuse me while I watch our feature film over and over again.
