Colleen & Caleb - Summer Wedding in Downtown Altoona

Colleen, Caleb and their little girl Emma are a beautiful little family. And celebrating their wedding day with them was a joy for us here at Altoona Video Production. The treat for us was that just two weeks prior to this wedding, we experienced another wedding of a Drenning family member. And this family sure knows how to have a good time!

We started the day at Caleb's house in downtown Altoona. The guys were drinking a few cold ones as we filmed them getting ready for the big day. Once we finished up there, we headed to The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament to capture Colleen and the girls. Colleen's dress was gorgeous and she was equally as stunning when she put it on.

After the ceremony, we worked alongside Jen from Blink of an Eye Photography. Jen and I have worked together a few times before and it is always a great time working with her. She has an awesome personality and is so easy to get along with. The photo session finished up on the steps just outside the Cathedral.

The reception was held just a few blocks down the street at the UVA. This place is always so beautifully decorated inside and the staff does an excellent job of tending to the guests as well as the vendors. Chad Bender's DJ service put on a great party and threw in a few surprises with throughout the night. We'd like to thank Colleen, Caleb, Emma and the rest of their amazing families for letting us capture their special day. We hope you had as much fun as we did! Enjoy your wedding film!

Divya's 1st Birthday | A Fairy Tale Kind of Day

I was absolutely thrilled when I received the call to film Divya's 1st Birthday. She is an adorable little girl with so much personality and I couldn't wait to capture some of that on video. Not to mention she has two of the best parents and most wonderful families I have ever met.

Now this story goes back to last summer when Laura & Narinder were tying the knot here in Altoona, PA. Even as I first met them, I could tell that they were two of the friendliest people on Earth. I think we talked for almost 2 hours at that first meeting. Needless to say, we had an amazing time at their wedding and have kept in touch since then. So when Laura reached out about filming Divya's birthday, there was no doubt that I'd be there.

Divya's birthday celebration began with a meal at the Twisted Thistle in Leechburg, PA. Facepainting, balloon animals and games were set up in the back room where the kids were having an absolute blast. After lunch, it was time for Divya to go at it with the cake. She loved it! As we finished up at the restaurant, we headed back to the house to open some presents. I have never seen so many presents in my entire life!

Thanks to Laura & Narinder and both of their families for welcoming me into their lives. I have had such a great time over the past year or so since I met you. Happy Birthday to Divya and enjoy your video!
