This elegant, classic wedding took place in Aspen, Colorado in front of a stunning mountain backdrop a place very special to the couple. I send my couples a Mindful Wedding Magazine that I created to help them not only savor their day through video but also to savor these moments in their minds and bodies through various mindfulness tools. I’m never entirely sure if couples read it or if it resonates with them. But during Michael and Raini’s ceremony it started raining right before their vows and poured through the rest of the ceremony. I was worried it might take them away from the moment or leave them disappointed. But right after the ceremony Raini told me that she read the guide and one part really resonated in these moments… that truly nothing could ruin this day. When you release expectations for how the day must unfold and set intentions to be present with all that arises, you’re able to truly savor and enjoy your day. I learned by getting to know the couple throughout the day that Raini and Michael share a love of personal growth and development and I don’t think it was by accident that the stars aligned for me to film their day. This little moment just reminds me of how grateful I am not only to do this work, but to truly be working with couples that I connect with on a soul level. Here is their full film and a glimpse into their beautiful love.
“One thing people don’t talk about when you’re planning your wedding is how much time you spend with your photographer and videographer on your wedding day, and how it’s so important to not only pick someone whose work you resonate with, but also you get along with and feel comfortable around. Tia was exactly that. Tia is extraordinary. She went the extra mile to make sure she really got to know her couples, understand what is important to them, and make sure they stay present in the midst of chaos to help capture the most authentic love you and your partner have for one another. She created a mindfulness magazine that she sends to her couples to help them drop expectations and enjoy the day you spent so long planning and waiting for. This magazine and her overall approach helped keep me grounded and allowed me to soak in every second of a day that goes by way too fast. Our video exceeded expectations. She has an incredible creative vision. As I watch this video (over and over and over) I am reminded of how happy we were and we couldn’t be happier we hired Tia to capture the most important day of our lives. I can’t recommend her enough.”
