"You make me want to be a better person every day. I love you more than you could possibly know. I vow to always stand by your side and support you, to cherish you and honor you, and to love you wholeheartedly for the rest of my life. I promise I will always communicate with you and put you first. I will spend the rest of my life trying to show you just how much I love you. I promise to stand by your side through all the ups and downs we'll face in life - even the day Tom Brady retires..."

"I would like to raise a glass... to a marriage that was born in Heaven. And may it continue to be so..."

I love filming rehearsal dinners and hearing the bride and groom's family and friends' versions of how the two met and what transpired from there. Watch Rob and Rebecca's wedding film to hear some of the awesome toasts that tell their story so well. This wedding was SO lovely and not a single detail went overlooked. There was a really wonderful team of vendors to ensure just that-

Baby Kate

Hey there!

I'm so glad you found your way here!  I wanted to share with you the latest on what is REALLY going on over at Sami Sue Studios ;).

We welcomed our daughter, Katherine Fay, to our family January 6th!  She has been such a sweet addition and we are all adjusting well.  Her big brother, Jay, loves her oh so much! :)  I am so blessed that this business allows me to be at home with them both.

This weekend I am jumping back into the swing of things and filming my first wedding of the year.  I know 2017 is going to be great!  I'm almost completely booked for the year, so please don't hesitate to inquire if you are interested in having me film your wedding.

xoxo,
Sami Sue

It's so nice to step away from reality every weekend to celebrate love. These two were a lot of fun. And how about Lance's accent? I feel like there needs to be a "So I can kiss you anytime I want" in those vows. ;)
