“This Ritz-Carlton Toronto wedding was a true white wonderland fantasy brought to life! From the moment Marisa and Robert’s guests approached the 12-ft tall floral tunnel of white cherry blossom branches, white wisteria stems, and over 500 fresh roses that led them to the couple’s reception, they knew they were in for a spectacular evening they wouldn’t soon forget.” Wedluxe Magazine

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 had the best time capturing the wedding story of Kayla & Andrew. These two had a beautiful wedding day despite the overcast clouds and scattered showers… the sun did shine for us and we loved all the backdrops that Credit Valley Golf and Country Club had to offer. Their bridal party was fantastic and their images and film turned out beautifully. Here are just a few of our favourites. We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!
Last weekend we had the honour of capturing the beautiful wedding story of Lolo and Avo. Their day was filled with elements of their Armenian heritage and lots of food, fun and dancing! It’s always about the STORY for us, capturing and re-telling the story of each unique couple, ensuring that all of the key elements are there, so that years from now when they look back they will remember the details and people that made their wedding day so special. The reception room was truly a work of art from Susan Murray who always creates such elegance. We wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness and hope they completely love this highlight from their big day!

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!
