Tim Alan featured in latest issues of The Bridal Guide & Knot magazines.

I was interviewed in the fall by Elena from the Bridal Guide for an article on wedding videography.

The March/April issue hit the newsstands recently with a detailed article on page 224.

Elena did an excellent job taking the information we discussed and using it in the article. Some of the high points include how to pick a videographer that fits your style, the emergence of less obtrusive equipment, and why audio makes having video at your wedding a necessity.

In the latest issue of the Knot's magazine, Tim Alan is mentioned as one of the five companies that sponsored the Knot's NYC vendor party at Slate in November. We filmed the event which can be seen in this blog as well as on both Tim Alan and the Knot's websites.

The Bridal Guide and the Knot are national magazines available at newsstands and most major bookstores.

Lisa & Mark; Feb 2: Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Lisa and Mark had their closest family and friends gather in Puerto Morelos, Mexico last weekend for a destination wedding event at the Ceiba Del Mar Spa Resort.

Tim Alan videographer, Brian, flew to Mexico last Friday and spent Saturday capturing the important events of the day, which started with the ceremony on the beach. Lisa looked stunning as she came out of the resort and walked towards her groom-to-be and the rest of the wedding party.

After the wind-whipped ceremony, the couple and their wedding party and family took photos on the beach before heading to an outdoor cocktail hour at the resort. Some of the kids played with shells on the beach while the adults enjoyed the sounds of the ocean and cocktails before heading in for the reception.

The reception highlights included the first dance, toasts by the best man and father of the bride, spirited dancing, cutting the cake (that was actually made during the reception!), and finally the couple being showered with flower petals as they escaped to their waiting chariot- a John Deere golf cart!

Tim Alan will once again be one of the primary sponsors at the NYC Junior League's 'A Wedding Affair' on March 15, 2008.

A Wedding Affair is more than just a show with some of NYC's top wedding vendors, but includes a silent auction, multiple industry speakers as well as food and drink throughout the day.

Some of the participants in last year's event included Kleinfeld Bridal, Ceci New York, April Reed Cakes, The Mandarin Oriental, Florisan Florists, Spencer Gordon Photography, Fete, Alpine Creative Group, Great Performances, Williams-Sonoma and many more....

Last year Tim Alan donated a full wedding package to the Junior League's silent auction, which was won by Lisa and Mark, whose February 2 wedding in Mexico will appear as a recap in tomorrow's blog.

Additionally, Tim Alan filmed the event and created a highlight which you can view below.

Steve & Jenny; February 2: The Manhattan Penthouse & The Church of the Ascension

When Steve and Jenny told me last fall that their wedding would have a 1930s theme, I was intrigued by the possibilities.

So when I arrived at the Gramercy Park Hotel on Saturday to watch Jenny change into her gown and accessories I felt like I had slipped back into time when viewing this vintage 1930s look she had successfully achieved. Everyone in the room was awe struck by the beauty and originality of the gown and bride. The theme continued with highlights including the car, bridesmaid dresses and all the details intricately set up throughout the day.

The ceremony at The Church of the Ascension on Fifth Avenue and 10th street was a mix of both religions- Jewish and Catholic. There was a Cantor and Priest who alternated throughout and unity candle lightings were mixed with Ketubah signings and glass breaking. As an alternative to rice and rose petals, the couple had custom-made flags for all their guests to wave as they exited the church. This made for a unique and fun recessional.

The Manhattan Penthouse
, only 4 blocks away, held breathtaking views inside and out, thanks in part to planner and decorator, Celebrate Flowers, for the interiors and the Manhattan Penthouse for it's location and windowed views.

Highlights of the night included a first dance that took months of practice, a festive Horah, the Mezinka, the Cuban theme that was everywhere, a mix of DJ and live music by Body Rock and the empanadas and coffee bar that came out for the guests at the end of the night....
