and we're in a huge supporter of education for all so we're really excited to get married we don't want to wait until next year we figured that we could be part of a one of a kind experience because this has never happened for and that's what we're most eager to be a part of it is just be completely different because that's how we feel that our love is is completely different from anybody no yeah that's it wait you know you got something to tell squid are you already have something I'm going to use my name yeah I'd like tio welcome everybody here for this occasion to celebrate with us with lauren billy we're very thrilled to have many friends and family that air here and for those of you that air on the other side of the family were welcome to have everyone else here too way to go wish laura and billy for a long loving healthy relationship and maybe many many years to be together wait are thrilled that have billy was part of our family hey roger and we're the other part of the family which is now one day I just considered it an honor to be the father of these two special people that the thing that another thing and I really considered an honor it is to be the best man my son's way really really just me I have a couple of things that I I want to bring out about billy's growing up one of the first memories that I have we're talking families here on and all you know when we stood in a circle I thought that was amazing thing that the kids wanted us to do with him and and it brought that back memories of billy and I playing living in football I would uh I would be on my knees and he would be you know here for five years old and uh uh my knees became so wrong that I would I would tie socks around my knees because they'd be bleeding we'd be playing football all day long and then we'd have a bouts of basketball in the garage um and uh he broke the rim playing against and uh let's see what was the other one uh anyway uh and then laura the first time I met her officially at our house uh we have barbecued hamburgers and she took to catch a bottle and I poured the ketchup on top of the hamburger on the outside of it and then ate it tonight said that that's my girl that's my girl so the family values are the things that that uh I know that they're going to carry on and uh just so proud of them uh for the commitment that they've made to one another I know melody and I both are and uh we certainly uh love the march banks uh side of the family now to their amazing people and uh best to all of you uh billion laura and er have a wonderful life together okay the next is the maid of honor I can't do improv oh I'm bailey sister and now laura's sister very happy about that that's not my son eyes where go grandma anyway on behalf of laura billy and our families again I would like to thank everybody who made it today because I know it was probably an effort for some people to get here but it means a lot to all of us um and again I would not have told you this I would not have missed this for the world regardless and it's good thing writer was on time and not late but um I have been waiting for this moment myself for seven long years oh wetter feels like seven um to make official what I have felt in my heart since the moment I laid eyes on laura and that is that she is my sister and now it's legal or illegal um and I could not have hand selected a better more perfect mate for my brother ben this young lady standing here and that's saying a lot because my brother is an exceptional person so you did get um and he did he had to endure a lot living with two older exacting very exacting bossy sisters and rachel and I would like to think that we had something to do with his character now I don't know it's it's a good character we had something to do with that um and I have no doubt that one of the things that laura loves about you billy is that you just you just are who you are you know there's there's no guile with you you wear your heart on your sleeve and I think that's important to someone like laura she's very genuine person just like you are and you're unafraid to love and to show love and that's sometimes hard to find in men you know so um I know that beneath that laid back exterior beats the heart of a fiercely loyal and deeply faithful man and these are qualities that are going to make you a beautiful husband and father someday again not my son go can't stop but it just keeps getting better give candy mom that's awesome anyway back to good qualities huh that is something that both laura and billy share and it's a reverence for family and a real desire for authentic and meaningful relationships and on the other hand laura provides the perfect counterpart to my brothers relaxed approach to life I have never met a person more enterprising or focused than laura and well look around you she pulled this often for weeks you know she's the woman to get it done if it's going to get done and she does it with style and wit and grace um I really think that laura spirit has brought a liveliness into our family's lives in a sparkle and more importantly she has brought levin to my brother's life and she is his true companion and I love you both I am I'm blessed to know you and know you or two and I'm honored to be standing up here with you s so um may you laugh often and give freely may you love with full and trusting hearts and here's to a life filled with happiness and children I love you no way any other uh frank means e hello everybody my name's justin duncan for those of you who don't know me I'm a long time childhood friend of mr billy bo cock over here and very happy to be so uh known billy for quite some time uh some change from grade school uh you know through high school and uh into college and through our young adulthood and I like to think that we've got a really close bond in fact sometimes probably too close I think our wives are happy we're five hundred miles apart and we're not next door neighbors um when me and billy are together uh we take our time er and we make the most of it way have a great time together and we maximize the few times that we have you know each year now to really get to know each other and you know our families um but I really want to say thank you for that may be a part of your special day um wouldn't miss it for the world on uh certainly wish you guys the best just uh move forward with your life um the one thing that is constant life has changed you know it's always changing from from minute to minute day today your year and and I saw billy change you know from being a little kid in grade school teo successful high school athlete student you know he kind of fell back when he went to college he chose university of oregon but way all men make mistakes you know just ask jeremiah solely we all do it's all right but no you guys made a big change today in both of your lives you've been a change in your lives it's gonna last forever but it was for the better and uh I look forward to being a part of their part of that with you both uh melissa does too and I'd appreciate if everybody in this room would wish them the best raise a glass and toast this marriage to be the best thing that's gonna happen thank you okay thank you everybody how about that out takes riel you shoot you get shot trying to find my flash just really high so a really white aperture just with setting up the future light on the windows and strong life everywhere we take a break showing up and out and takes another um we met in college we were we were neighbors neighbors in college weird um that was really it way uh yes keep this pg so I knew billy was interested in me because one day I was out in the drive by washing my car and he lived across the street from me and I look over at his apartment building and his bedroom window faced the street face our driveway and his blinds were pulled down and they flipped back up assumes I looked that's when I was like I got that guy on my site why was she looking over my window huh she was looking she would yeah see that's that's what I have that she was looking my way that's reason she should how would she haven't even known the blinds or even closing I was walking around the car you're scoping out my bedroom how scandalous is that I think you were scoping out my assets laura made the first move allegedly allegedly she want parents to know that she had a couple drinks ever made is kind of like getty skipping around the apartment and I was like what did you do last night and um she said what did she say she said nothing and I said you kissed a boy didn't you and she said no and I said you did to you kissed a boy was it and she was like really I was like okay whatever I kind of liked him and I told her that I said well whatever I kind of liked him but that's fine you can have him and then two weeks later we ran into each other at another party and our chemistry was just inevitable we were really magnetic so that was the end of them in the beginning was done laura transferred schools she went it's a photography school in california and um I was really into her so I followed her there professed his love I falter I loved quote movies to appoint its almost to a fault so one of my favorite movies to quote is anchorman because I really think that I would be a fantastic here man and wait e I think uh stinky on that's what we're most eager to be a part of is to just be completely different because that's how we feel that our love is is completely different from anybody else's that money or what yeah and I had feared you know anyplace anyplace that will help us save some money but then still prepare for our future together say my senses uh I lost my train of thought you need your I can play jazz flute e I love lamp I love lamp brick do you really little lamp or are you just looking at things around the room and say that you love him theo the arsonist has oddly shaped feet ah wait we're gonna have to a little like cake no no no we're good yeah fifty wait right here I'm just gonna test the light because I don't know what we're going to be right now just with immediately because I don't want the last true way wait a little bit of dancing and then got a perfect okay what's gonna happen now is that instead of doing all the formal events for the night laura actually wants to go into dancing which is actually good for me I want to get dancing pictures of her ability and their guests to a cliff sue we'll probably do I'm guessing between twenty and thirty minutes of dancing on then we'll get the cocaine carter at that point in time depending on how many photos we have laura and billy I think we'll make it we'll make a decision to call it a night because we have a third shooter third stay on an extra thirty minutes to get lingering from shots and it'll be complete coverage from start to finish and I'm so glad we made it there so hang on to the next little bit I'm guessing a few minutes you guys are just we got a lot of around here would love a seat join like a bride and they're also announcement there's a photo back by far way way wonderful with you growing partaking get pictures taking me a lot of time and our cameras you're on your music good that you're yes okay thank you back there they're here um I switched to the twenty four millimeter this is usually what I'll shoot I know that people going to come into the frame so I want to get the story goes back to what we talked about couple days ago this is the story tell england's I don't want to get something too tight I want to actually see who's in the background with them as they dance
Jasmine Star helps entrepreneurs build a brand and market it on social media. After quitting law school, she picked up a camera, built an internationally recognized business, and teaches others how to do the same. In addition to chasing wild dreams, Jasmine works with her husband and grumpy dog, and you'll likely find her walking her hometown streets of Newport Beach, California with a box of
This is an amazing event to be involved in - and I feel as if I was involved all the way in Switzerland! Jasmine Star is so natural and genuine in front of the camera that she makes you feel as if you are her best friend. Seeing her shoot, watching the way that she uses the natural light and being walked through the problems you might encounter is invaluable. Even if you are not interested in photography or weddings, her business advice is spot on. Creative Live and Jasmine did an amazing job and I am so glad I bought the course. To be able to go back to a video and see how something was done, again and again is well worth the price. I'm also exciting to be contributing to new workshops for 2011 - can't wait to see what you guys come up with! It's true that some of the footage has yet to come through (would love to see the bridal prep stuff!) but it was so exciting to see the new footage of Laura and Billy outside, I think it will be worth the wait. Buy this course and be truly inspired! Emma Godfrey

I watched this live back in August 2010 and since the first day it was on my list to buy. Finally bought it as part of the end of year pack in December 2010 and only just got around to watching the full five days.
I'm not a wedding photographer, nor do I have plans to become one any time soon. I was interested in this course because of the business sessions on marketing, branding and so on. If you're interested in becoming a wedding photographer this is a must buy no question.
If, like me, you're only interested in the business sections this is a valuable course, but there is a better option available from CreativeLIVE. The new 'Building your Wedding Photography Business' course by Jasmine consolidates all this business information from this course into a two day course. Another good addition to your to buy list should be Children's Portrait Photography with Tamara Lackey. This has by far the best business section of any of the CreativeLIVE courses. Combined these two courses and you will be set up and profitable in no time.
Back to this wedding course. As others have said there are audio issues here and there but they are at worst annoying and don't really effect the overall experience. I think you can see from the course content if you are an aspiring wedding photographer this is the course for you. Five days of content from an award winning wedding photographer. As I'm not a wedding photographer I can't really add much more.
I just wanted to say it's a great course. Fun to watch. Invaluable information. I really appreciate CreativeLIVE being here to offer these courses. Thanks guys!

Jasmine is an amazing educator, who really gave it her all in this stellar course! Love how detailed her instructions were - down to such nuances as the bride's shoulder position! Big thanks to Jasmine and creativeLIVE for bringing this wealth of information to the community. Totally worth the buy!
I can appreciate how grassroots and "live taping" the filming approach is, but I think I wouldn't mind giving most of that flavor up in favor of a more edited version :) You know - cut out the bits where the camera is just recording black and the pieces missing audio. And where is this missing footage promised from the guy you can see taping Jasmine from across the street?? Anyway, amazing course, and hopefully you guys can figure out the video/audio/mic stuff so that it doesn't get in the way of absorbing all this amazing content.
