The Untied States of Wedding Music 2009

We just saw this great video from DJ Earworm - using pretty much every dance song that we have heard at receptions all year long! Keeping everyone happy and dancing while economic challenges hung in the misty background of everything that happened this year - it was a perfect place for these kinds of songs.


Lynelle and Christopher // 11.21.2009

A Wedding in Newport, Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley from Charles + Lauren Films on Vimeo.

I had a wonderful time following Lynelle and Christopher all over Orange County, from the beach to the country club, what a time! The ceremony took place at St. Joachim Catholic Church, in Costa Mesa. Amazingly, St. Joachim is actually the father of Mary, and this day of the wedding was an important feast day! Good timing!


New Year's Thank You!


Lindsey + Justin // Las Posas Country Club Holiday Highlight

Justin time for Christmas, Lindsey's favorite holiday, here is their highlight reel! I had such a good time going out to Camarillo to the Las Posas Country Club. It might have rained - but it didn't - I think it could have snowed though, and everyone would have felt right at home. Speaking of snow, the confetti that was thrown at them (watch for it) as they recessed down the aisle was shocking to them - with its shimmery brilliance and pesky ability to stick to their clothes, they were sparkling the rest of the night!

Chris Schmitt Photography ran the photo end of things, wrapping up a great end to November!

Merry Christmas!

Kristen + Arvin // A 2 Day Indian + Vietnamese Celebration

Two days, two cultures, parties and family celebrations from morning to night - sounds like another Charles Lauren Films weekend! This highlight shows the great time we had with Kristen and Arvin - and we were very amazed to learn that their family owns Shershah's Indian Restaurant in Marina del Rey, which we go to all the time! What a coincidence!

For Those Newly Engaged - Have a joyful Christmas!!


Amanda + Rudy's Wedding // The Luxe // Bel-Air

Rudy and Amanda at The Luxe in Bel-Air. What can we say? They met on a private yacht going to Catalina, they fell in love, snuck away into the bathroom and have been on fire ever since! Rudy wrote her a very good song - which we used as the backdrop for their highlights - check this out! The photographer was the brilliant Chris Schmitt who was able to channel some of Rudy's boundless energy and planning was done by Maryam of Delicate Details.

Abigail + Raul // Wedding Highlights

Abigail and Raul had a very special wedding at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys and the Glendale Hilton. We loved the idea to take pictures on top of the roof by Chris Schmitt Photography. The reception room was huge and amazing and the mariahis kept playing great music.
