Alex and Adam were married at the Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina, directly across the water from the C&H factory, where Adam’s family had special ties and memories. Alex was the most organized bride! When we met her, we instantly clicked and couldn’t WAIT to capture their wedding day memories! Their day was filled with fun loving family and friends, a beautiful venue and so many gorgeous and thoughtful details.

Life’s greatest gifts come to us when we are ready to receive them. Often times, we don’t see them coming, but when they do, it’s instantly impossible to imagine life without them. When Steven and Julia found each other, they knew the gift that life had delivered, and it is easy to see… just in the way they look at each other.

Ian & Rebecca | Forest House Lodge ‹‹ Direct Light Studios ››

I felt like we had a secret, just the two of us. You know, like that thing where you just want to be with that one person the whole time and that the two of you understand something that nobody else gets. I could just tell you everything about myself and I never had anybody in my life like that before. It felt like finally I could truly be myself without being ashamed and without being embarrassed. ~American Hustle Ian & Rebecca | Forest House Lodge « Direct Light Studios » Forest Hill, CA, Wedding Highlight Film | 06 • 04 • 16 |

Marriage is a powerful shared commitment. Though marriage is the legal binding of two people, the truly important bond exists in your heart. As your relationship grows, you will find a love you never knew existed–a love where the other persons happiness is truly more important.

Geno & Stacey | Palm Events Center << Direct Light Studios>>

“Marriage must be created. In the art of marriage it’s the little things that are the big things. It is never too old to be holding hands, and it’s remembering to say “I love you” at least once each day. It is standing together facing the entire world. It is having a mutual sense of values, speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is having the capacity to forgive and to forget. It’s giving each other the atmosphere in which the other can grow. It is being each other’s best friend. It’s a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is not only marrying the right partner, but being the right partner.” These were our favorite words spoken by Geno and Stacey’s ceremony officiant because they describe qualities that the two of them already posses, and will get to cultivate more of as their relationship grows.

Marriage expands people as individuals, defines them as a couple, and deepens their love for one another. Love isn’t just a word…it is an action. Love isn’t just something you say, it is something you do. Casey & Haley | Chico, California « Direct Light Studios » Chico, CA, Wedding Highlight Film | 07 • 25 • 15 |
