Ashley and Joey’s wedding story unfolded in the most beautiful location, their very own farm, on what was probably the nicest Saturday of summer – 25 degrees with lots of sunshine and the perfect amount of cloud cover. Mother Nature was so kind to all of us as we celebrated this beautiful love story. There were many beautiful details to capture. Robb Williams outdid himself as he and his talented team transformed empty barns into gorgeous, rustic and romantic pieces of art. Guests were greeted by a traditional bluegrass band and there was a pig roasting on a spit that would be carved and served for dinner. Anne Dickson and her team from Pig Out Catering served an amazing dinner and the DJ team from Spirit of Sound kept everyone entertained with great music. From the Muskoka chairs and fire pits to the huge hay ride wagon that the bridal party rode on after the ceremony, this day was full of special moments that were truly a reflection of this couple. We are so honoured that we were there to capture all the details and preserve these beautiful memories. Their Same Day Edit was shown on the outside wall of the barn as their guests enjoyed home made desserts from the pie bar and bakery stations. It simply couldn’t have been better. Congratulations Ashley and Joey, all your hard work was so worth it. What a wedding to remember!

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!

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!

Claire + Luca were married at the beautiful St. Basil’s church at the University of Toronto. These two are the perfect match! Claire has been following our work over the past 5 years and when Luca proposed we were one of the first vendors she contacted. We were thrilled to hear that they were planning a June wedding and looked so forward to capturing all of their wedding day memories. We know they are anxiously waiting to watch this again from some romantic spot on their travels as they spend their honeymoon in Europe, so here it is… their beautiful Same Day Edit.

Amy and Phil planned a perfect wedding day to kick off Summer! The weather was beautiful and we really did have the most relaxing and fun day with them, their family and friends. Amy and her girls looked spectacular thanks to the talented team at Makeup Worx. They chose picturesque Glen Abbey Golf & Country Club for their reception venue. Even in full sun we were able to capture some incredible images of them out on the green and in and around the incredible grounds. A special thanks to Leigh Raynor, catering sales manager, who went above and beyond to personally escort us around the course and ensured that everything was picture perfect. We loved the elegant décor created by Melissa at One Fine Day Event Planning & Design. Their gorgeous wedding cupcakes and cake were designed by Patricia’s Cake Creations. We also want to thank our friends Brian and Kelly Mercer from Blue Canister Studios for helping us capture Amy & Phil’s wedding story and create their heart-warming Same Day Edit that showed during their reception. We were surprised to hear that this was the inaugural Same Day Edit at Glen Abbey – what an honour! We wish a lifetime of love and happiness to Amy & Phil… thank you for choosing us to capture your memories! *a full post of photos coming soon, for now please enjoy their SDE.

We first met Pam and Stephen last year when Pam’s sister Sabrina and her hubby Franco were married. The one thing I remembered so vividly from that day was just how amazingly kind and warm their family was to us. Joe, Pam and Sabrina’s father, was constantly asking us if we needed anything or if he could do something for us. He is always smiling… and last Saturday morning it was exactly the same. It was pouring rain when we started our morning coverage at 8 am. Pam arrived home from the salon with a huge smile and an attitude of “I don’t care if it’s raining this is going to be the most amazing day”. I love that both her and Stephen are so easy going and were completely trusted us with the photo location when their plan to visit Pioneer Village fell through because of the heavy rain and winds. Everything fell into place and we had an amazing day. The rain stopped briefly in the mid afternoon and we went outside to capture some photos with the vintage car they rented. The reception at Paramount was gorgeous – I loved the decor and little hints of Autumn and lots of sparkle. Their Same Day Edit matched their personalities perfectly – it was both fun and upbeat! We know that just as they’ve spent many years together planning for their big day they’ll now have many, many more years ahead of great adventures… cheers to love and laughter!

What a beautiful wedding story we had the honour of capturing yesterday. Karen and Lorne were married in an absolutely gorgeous ceremony in the Governor’s Room at the Ancaster Mill. The rains held off, family and friends gathered with full hearts for a celebration joining two families. I especially love ceremonies that unite different cultures and religions and knowing how important having a Jewish ceremony was to Karen it was all that more special seeing the two of them under the Chuppah surrounded by their parents, closest friends, candles and gorgeous florals. The room looked incredible. Speaking of incredible, Karen’s champagne coloured lace dress was breathtaking. My favourite part of their day was when they saw each other for the first time. I love the look on Lorne’s face as Karen looked over at him from the upstairs railing and I especially loved the few minutes they had alone together immediately after when Karen whispers “here we go … now that I’ve seen him I’m ready, now I’m okay”. Their Same Day Edit was a complete surprise. Karen’s mom and dad had requested this as a surprise gift to their daughter and new son-in-law. It was amazing to watch their faces as they watched their wedding story on the big screen surrounded by all of their wedding party, family and friends. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to keep this secret from them the past few months, but I’m so glad we did. What a truly beautiful and memorable gift! The SDE ended with a standing ovation and lots of hugs… we believe it truly captures the essence of their love story.

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!

Yesterday was the most amazingly beautiful day! With an outdoor ceremony planned at Hart House, inside a gorgeous courtyard at the University of Toronto, we had all prayed for a perfect weather day! I joked with Jo yesterday that her bridesmaids all looked as though they had gone through a rigorous screening process similar to the Bachelorette … how else could one find 9 bridesmaids and 2 maids of honour that are ALL stunning ? The entire wedding party was awesome and we had a really great time! Monika and her entire dream team from MakeUp Worx were there bright and early, we absolutely loved both of Jo’s bridal looks – one for daytime and another for evening. Jackie from Jackie Penner Events was such a pleasure to work with. She kept everyone on schedule and truly created a dream wedding day for Jo and Dennis. I have only quickly gone through the images from yesterday and found my jaw drop a couple of times at the special moments we captured. A full post of photos will come later but for now we wanted to share their Same Day Edit from last night.
