In 2010 Daniel Gruen Weddings was born with a mission of preserving the most special and beautiful memories of life. Since then, the Daniel Gruen Weddings team has filmed hundreds of weddings throughout California and beyond.
Born and raised in Berkeley, Daniel Gruen learned the fundamentals of storytelling studying film at UC Santa Barbara. It was there Daniel met and was mentored by film director William Dear (Harry and the Hendersons, Angels in the Outfield). Never formally trained in cinematography or video editing, Daniel is completely self taught from a technical standpoint.
The award winning filmmaking of Daniel Gruen Weddings is about capturing every special moment and portraying them in the form of an endearing story. Sitting at home watching your film for the first time, you'll be brought back to the feelings and memories of your wedding. Exchanging vows, speeches by loved ones, your first dance, and all those little details you wish to always remember. Everything we do is about preserving beautiful memories and bringing you back into those moments.
Daniel lives in Dublin, CA with his beautiful wife Amanda, and rescued cats Meeko and Lacey. He hosts the popular "Wedding Experts Live" podcast which is just another extension of his passion for preserving stories and storytelling.
