From the first time we met Erica & Owen, we knew that this film was always going to be something spectacular. Everything about the two of them and the wedding day itself was so organic, so purely genuine and we think it really comes through in this short film. We are honored to have had the opportunity to document and participate in this event. We spent three days on the island, living in the couples home with their dog Piper. This gave us the time to really get to know how close this group of people is and how it really is a collective family coming together as one. It is a true testament to the people that Owen and Erica are, and the love surrounding them, their family and friends.
