Abby and David met while attending Houghton College, and grew closer while on a missions trip to China. Although Abby comes from an Italian-American background and David was an international student from Korea, their love for Christ and sense of humor bonded them together. After receiving the blessing of Abby’s father, Rev. Joe Talone of Fardale Trinity Church, David proposed to Abby on Thanksgiving dinner with all of Abby’s family present.

When I met the couple for the first time, Abby and David expressed to me that their wedding video was very important to them because they wanted their love for Christ to be shared with the world. That through their video, they wanted to exemplify the Gospel. I prayerfully took on the wedding, and I’m so very glad that I did.

Abby and David tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, NJ. The weather was perfect with the right amount of cloud for soft lighting and the right amount of sun and blue skies for smiling subjects. The couple held a foot-washing ceremony to be reminded of how Christ expressed his unconditional love and forgiveness for his disciples before they sinned against him – therefore reminding themselves to always love and forgive one another. Overall I was blessed to be a part of Abby and David’s wedding and was reminded of my own vows I made to my wife. Oh, how I love what I do!

It was a pleasure working with Mads Kobold of Madly Photography, who helped me open the door during the recessional, and Nissa and Matt of 3 West for the reception entertainment. We had a great team for this wedding: best friend and fellow filmmaker Daniel Dai, and the talented Victor Lee for another wedding. I’m looking forward to piecing the final wedding feature film together. Until then, I hope enjoy this trailer!
