Capturing Katie & Dustin’s wedding story yesterday was a lot of fun, but did have it’s challenges.  Being that the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is in full swing the police and security guards were extremely strict around the rules of filming and photography.  On several occasions we were informed that this was completely forbidden, no footage inside of the hotel would be allowed AT ALL,  yet somehow we had to ensure we were able to capture their story with as much detail as possible. Katie was getting ready at the gorgeous Shangri La.  Imagine her surprise when the elevator doors opened and in walks the handsome and talented actor Hugh Jackman.  With a congratulatory kiss on the bride’s cheek he made the girls swoon.  Word of this excitement spread like wildfire as Instagram photos were uploaded and profile pictures on Facebook were quickly changed.  This was definitely the highlight of the morning.   Inspired by her father’s British heritage, Katie and her Dad rode in a London Taxi to the AGO. This upbeat couple who are most famous among their group of friends for holding over-the-top theme parties and being ridiculously funny and entertaining certainly pulled off the party of the year last night.  Shealyn from Bliss Events brought together some of the industry’s leading professionals to make their vision come to life perfectly in the modern spaces at the AGO. The elegant table lamps combined with hundreds of candles and gorgeous florals from Frank Rea of Forget Me Not Flowers really made the reception room look spectacular.   Their Same Day Edit Video really captures their day perfectly!  We wish Katie and Dustin a lifetime of love and happiness!

It’s been an amazing year-long journey getting to know and become friends with Sasha and Eric.  Yesterday, it was such an honour  for us to capture the wedding story of this fabulously warm, completely in-love-with-each-other couple.  From her couture Vera Wang gown and Louboutin Shoes to walking down the isle to the love of her life it was evident that Sasha’s biggest wedding day dreams came true.  Eric looked so handsome and was teary during his personal vows to his new bride.  The entire day was filled with love and laughter.  We saw many of their guests wiping away tears after their Same Day Edit showed last night… it truly encapsulates their love story and will always take them back to their magical day.   We had the pleasure of working alongside some very talented individuals who all had an important role in making their day as memorable as it was!
