If you love to watch Dateline Mysteries, click play to watch Anden & Brandon’s Dateline Romance Mystery spoof. Yes, this is a fun spoof! Anden’s Mom told her daughter, the sweet Bride to be, they were just going to play a simple growing up video for their rehearsal dinner. Well it was a little more than just a few growing up photos. Guests loved it. So much so they also played it at the wedding reception too. Hat’s off to Anden’s parents for pulling off this great surprise for the Bride and Groom.

Click play and share a laugh or two.

I must say the Bride’s parents took this so called “Growning Up Presentation” to a new level. The day we filmed this Anden’s parents told us they had thought they might record this on their iPhone. Somehow wedding planner, Camden Chitwood of Emerson Events suggested they might want to contact us for a little assistance. To give credit where credit is due, Anden’s Mom, Carla wrote the entire script. I must say, she has a way with words. And Anden’s Dad, Calvin was recruited to be the “Dateline Investigator” of this romance mystery. He did a great job on his first acting debut. Now, I cannot vouch that all of the story is true or maybe embellished a bit, that too shall remain a bit of a mystery.

Anden, how could you be so lucky to have such fun parents? I think your parents enjoyed making this special surprise for you and Brandon as much if not more than you enjoyed watching it. May your families enjoy watching your “Dateline Romance Mystery” laughing and reminiscing all these wonderful memories for many years to come! ~Mark + Trisha

A Birth Story | Isabella Kate


Oh, how we love weddings, but lately several of our couples have come back asking for us to capture the birth of their new arrivals. Kati and Orie are one of those couples. Well, I, Trisha film the births, and I must say it is an awesome experience to share with a family.

Happy Birthday, Isabella Kate! A year ago today, I filmed your wonderful birth story. Your Mommy was a trooper delivering you with no epidural. Breathing through all those hard contractions, of which there were many, with your Daddy right their by her side encouraging her all the way. When you appeared, she and your Daddy were all smiles and your Gema was cheering too. They were so excited to see their little girl, their princess Bella. The room quickly filled with family to catch a glimpse of you. Your big Brother, Hudson was so excited to meet you, he quickly leaned over and gave you a kiss. I get a little teary eyed watching this video of all your family coming to meet you for the first time, thinking of what a treasure this will be to you over the course of your lifetime. Your Mommy so thoughtfully had the cutest girly gift bags to give all your visitors thanking them for coming to welcome your arrival.

Your birth was filled with wonder and lots of love for you little princess Bella! Click play to view Isabella Kate’s birth story…

Addison + Sarah = True Love

Addison and Sarah are so fun and share some great stories of how they first met, came to “like” one another and ultimately fell in love. Combine all of that with an armadillo, homemade pizza made on a camping stove and a diamond ring, well you have a really wild proposal. And you have to hear about their first kiss too! Someday their kids are going to love hearing these stories. Addison & Sarah make a great team. Click play to laugh a lot and maybe wipe a tear or two listening to Addison & Sarah’s story of true love.

Worth More Than Gold Music Video

Marianne’s Rentals for Special Events wanted to do a little something special to assist in raising awareness and funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation associated with The Children’s Hospital at the OU Medical Center, so they approached us about making a video to do so. We suggested the music video concept similar to the Dartmouth Children’s Hospital music video. Brent Patterson from Marianne’s came up with Britt Nicole’s Gold for the song. I must say, I watched her music video of the song once and thought how are we going to turn a song about bullying into something about a children’s hospital.


I listened and listened and a storyline began to evolve. I decided to take on the story of a child receiving a bad diagnosis, showing her and other kids in the hospital, she then gets a clean bill of health to leave the hospital, we throw a party celebrating her leaving the hospital. Event pros love to throw parties you know. Mark came up with the idea of her passing off her crown to another little girl just entering the hospital. That idea brought some tears to our eyes.


Oh, did I mention I had to use Miss Oklahoma local title holders in the video too. Luckily the lyrics helped me out on that one and the title holders were GREAT with the kids. The kids loved the pageant girls and the pageant girls added a lot to the video.

Mark and I love kids and this project was such a labor of love of us. Thank you goes out to the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Children’s Hospital and staff for allowing us the opportunity to create this video. A BIG THANK YOU to all the parents, Miracle Kids, patients, pageant girls and their parents for taking the day to film the video. And special thanks to Brent Patterson of Marianne’s Rentals for dreaming up this wonderful project and for all the organization of this huge project. Keep dreaming Brent!


When all is said and done, I think we accomplished what we set out to do. To bring an awareness to what a great job The Children’s Hospital does caring for children battling illness and celebrating kids getting to leave the hospital. And no matter what they are battling, kids are worth way more than GOLD! They are our future. Whether you can give financially or give of your time to volunteer at Children’s Hospital, make a difference in the life of a child. In doing so, I can assure you it will be a life changing experience. It was for us! Mark + Trisha

Wedding Video Invitation | Matt + Anna

Well, our son is tying the knot and we couldn’t be happier as we are gaining a wonderful daughter, Anna. We were excited when Anna said she was up for a wedding video invitation to invite guests to their wedding. Their guests have been a bit surprised receiving a DVD in their mailboxes rather than a traditional wedding invitation. We had a good time putting this one together as Matthew is quite the ham for the camera. We might be missing a few of his motor vehicles he regularly rides but not many. Click play to take a peek at their wedding “video” invitation.

We can now say, we have been the Bride, the Groom, Parents of the Bride and now Parents of the Groom! We can truly relate to our clients and all that goes into the wedding planning experience. It will be two married and one to go for our family! Mark jokingly told Megan we are on a three year plan and not to make any marriage plans until 2016. We will let you know how that goes.
