Love is the Music

We are excited to present to you another video masterpiece by the talented Loyd Callomay of Red 5 Studios.

Inspired by the words, “life is a song, love is the music,” this simple and elegant wedding truly reflected Tina & Jon’s love for music, and for each other, in every detail. Music stands held photos of the couple as well as classic works from Bach and Mozart. A vintage piano was the centerpiece of their elaborate dessert display, and each and every votive was wrapped in sheet music, casting a warm glow over the formal dinner reception.
