Meghan Markle, Eat Your Heart Out...

The words that Jo's dad said to her when he saw her in her gown for the first time...

How do I even begin to describe this wedding, these people, this trip?! It feels impossible to describe how wonderful and fun it all was - how kind and beautiful and good to the core these people are - how much we literally adore their entire groups of friends and family. It was like a surreal dream, and documenting this was our true pleasure. Gavin, I'm in love with your wife!!

Jo + Gavin are kinda the best. He is on the quieter side and totally chilled out - the nicest guy you could ever meet (and not to mention super handsome) and Jo, well, she is a firework (and a MAJOR babe!!)...full of life and fun and incredibly thoughtful of everyone. And together, they have made the cutest little mini sunshine called Jackson. They wanted to get everyone together to celebrate their love of music, fun and a good g&t on a warm Island in Spain, and the famous party spot (Ibiza, duh) didn't disappoint! We got to spend loads of time together with them and their squad - we even flew together, and by the time the wedding was upon us, we were all in it together, drinks, laughs, tears and all! I won't spoil it with more jabber - just watch. I promise it will melt your heart, and make you smile from ear to ear.

We love you guys!

Light Me Up...

Think back to when you were 10 - who was your crush - do you remember? I remember mine.. his name was Ryan Walters. I LOVED him since the 3rd grade - this would continue all through grade/middle school. He was even my first kiss in 8th grade. The story never really ended until we made out again when I was like 22, and that was the end of that. I thought that was kind of a cool, long-winded childhood love story, but I had nothing on Allie and Tom!!!

Allie and Tom met in 5th grade, at 10 years old. And that was kinda it - the Universe knew that these two were meant for each other, and continued to keep them together or near enough through their entire lives. There were times that they were together, and times they weren't, but they never stopped talking or thinking of each other. These two are what the term "there for you" means. By each other's sides in the best and worst of times. They are an extension of one another - they are best friends, truly.

Being with them and their families and friends - who by the way, are pretty much ALL from their childhood too, was incredible and fun, and insanely beautiful. You would think that a group as tightly knit as this would be weird about letting outsiders in to be a part of it, but they weren't - in fact, this group was the most inviting, generous, kind, cool group ever. We love them - we've been adopted.

As we spent a week together, documenting this destination journey, we realised how incredibly unique and special this scenario really was. How important celebrating roots and family is, and how valuable it is to have true friends who will carry 10 bottles of Tequila across the World in their suitcase for you, so you can have your favourite drink at your wedding!

With that said, this trailer is only the beginning - a tiny glimpse into the magical week we spent in many Portuguese cities with some of the best people we've ever met. We can't wait to share the rest. Get the tissues!
