We pride ourselves in getting to know our couples. Just like every couple is different so are our wedding films; some are upbeat and energetic, some are romantic comedies, some are full in glitz and sparkle, and then there are ones that are so beautifully moving. It’s no secret that we LOVE Muskoka weddings because the scenery, no matter what time of year, is incredibly beautiful and lends itself to gorgeous, cinematic shots which match the romantic love story unfolding. Enjoy this snippet from the opening of our latest feature film. Lindsey and Bill came all the way from Humble, Texas to be married at the JW Marriot The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & SPA and we know they are going to love their film and photo collection. Let us know if you agree.

Tracy and Nick were married on the beautifully modern rooftop of Malaparte in downtown Toronto. Their day was full of sunshine and laughter as their friends gathered from around the world to share in their special day. We loved the morning door games that were hilarious as Nick and his guys had to dress in onesies and play silly games to win Tracy’s hand in marriage. Their same day edit slide show was also enjoyed by their guests during the cocktail hour. We just know these two will live happily ever after!

Meaghan and Brad were married yesterday at Hernder Estates, a lovely winery in Niagara. The day was everything a bride dreams of. We were there to capture not only the magical moments and all the special details of their wedding story, but also their true personalities and the unique connection they share. We love how their Same Day Edit all came together, it’s truly a reflection of them and their love story. Wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness!

Lindsay and Jonathan were married in Muskoka just a few short weeks ago. Their wedding day was truly unbelievably special. The morning fog lifting off Lake Rosseau and the rains that fell immediately after their ceremony at Bracebridge United church only added to the feeling of warmth, romance and love that surrounded them both. The JW Marriott was the perfect venue for their guests to enjoy the beautiful northern surroundings. The serenity and amazing lake views make it one of our favourite wedding venues. Judy, Jonathan’s mom, worked so hard to plan and execute this incredible day for her son and new daughter in law… her efforts were completely worth it as everything was simply stunning! This highlight film brings us right back to their day and we hope it reminds them of all that was magical as they celebrated the biggest day of their lives (so far). We wish you both love and a lifetime of happiness as you grow old together.

Just a few short weeks before their intimate Muskoka wedding we received an email from Nicole and Duane to ask if by chance we were still available on July 2, 2015 to film and photograph their wedding story. I don’t think we’ve ever captured a Thursday wedding before, but being that the July 1st holiday (Canada Day) fell on a Wednesday this year, this was in fact the perfect day for their wedding celebration. What makes this so unique is that Nik and Duane live in Sydney, Australia which meant that planning out the details of their wedding would have to happen online and via skype. I must admit I was smitten from our very first skype call… who doesn’t love an Aussie accent, right? And they were both, so visibly, head over heels for one another and so excited for their wedding, that we knew this was going to be something very special. Indeed, it was an exceptionally beautiful day at Windermere House on July 2nd and although Nik’s family and many of their closest friends from Australia were not able to attend in person they did have a small group of Duane’s family and a few mutual friends who were able to join them. Nicole’s dearest friend Margie flew all the way from Australia and Duane’s youngest daughter India stood by Nik’s side and gave the most amazing toast at the luncheon reception. The combined simplicity and elegance of their wedding details as well as having Duane’s long-time friend Cary marry them, and Tobin Spring play beautiful acoustic music all afternoon, truly made this a memorable day for all. We are elated to share this highlight of their wedding story so that all of their friends and family can share in this celebration with Nik & Duane and experience the beauty of Muskoka (one of our very favourite places). Much love to this very special couple… thank you for choosing us to capture all of your precious wedding memories!

We are proud to share our ONLY Same Day Edit of 2015 … it’s one that we have been excitedly anticipating for the past 18 months. Cristina and Benny’s love story started more than 7 years ago and as their wedding day approached their family and friends simply couldn’t wait to watch their wedding story unfold, to share in their special day and surround these beautiful people with much, much love. We want to say a huge thank you to our good friend and colleague Ollie Denny from the U.K. who is an truly talented cinematographer. He single-handedly shot the entire ceremony with one camera, as the cathedral rules around photo and cinema are very strict, this was a true testament to his amazing abilities as a filmmaker and allowed Brian to focus on editing. We are honoured to have been chosen to document their day and share this highlight with more than 400 guests at Liuna Station during their reception. The feeling of watching over 400 guests take this all in, many of them through tears, gave us goosebumps. We truly are so very lucky to capture these moments and precious memories for our amazing couples and their families! Congratulations and lots of love Cristina & Benny!

We are so excited to FINALLY be able to share Jessica and Daniel’s fairytale wedding! Their wedding photos are beautifully showcased in the current issue of Dauphine Magazine so we are now able to post their wedding film.
Their wedding day was truly an over-the-top affair filled with elegance and romantic details at every turn. Frank Rea and his team at Forget Me Not flowers outdid themselves as the floral design, including an archway filled with thousands of fresh blooms, truly transformed the stunning spaces at the Ritz Carlton. Anne Anderson of Anne Anderson events was at the helm and ensured that every detail, every wish that Jessica and Daniel had for their special day was fulfilled. It truly was an incredible day and we just love the way their wedding highlight film turned out. It was such a pleasure to work with an incredibly talented team. Please see below for contact links. Enjoy!

Claudia & Michael contacted us just a few short weeks before their wedding day. We were so happy to be there to capture the details of their intimate ceremony at Casa Loma in Toronto and all the reception festivities at The Venetian. Their romantic wedding film is simply stunning.

We premiered Holly & Jordan’s Wedding film and watched it not once but twice along with the newlyweds and Holly’s parents. There were tears and laughter… lots of emotion as they re-lived the greatest day of their lives so far. When Jordan leaned over and said “this was the best investment we made … our wedding video” I knew we’d done a great job at re-telling their wedding story. Enjoy their highlight film (a re-cap of their longer film).
We were so excited when Liz and Danielle from Gush Weddings & Events asked us to be involved in their latest Style Shoot.
