“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 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!

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.

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 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!
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.

Each year I have the pleasure of designing gorgeous wedding albums for our couples and it’s a process I really do love. Selecting approximately 65 of the very best and most favourite images is probably the biggest challenge, but once those images are picked it’s truly magical to watch the album all come together. We love when couples come into the studio and get a chance to flip through these hand crafted albums in person. They feel beautiful in your hands and you can feel the workmanship and quality that has gone into each one. These are not flimsy books that are slapped together. Our albums are individually made by the album masters at Vision Art. We love the look and feel of these albums and they really do last forever! The thick pages are protected from finger prints and dust, the lay flat flushmount design means you don’t lose any of your photographs in the seam and they open nicely allowing you to see the entire image or images. We can’t imagine not having a wedding album… it truly is the storybook of of your wedding day and is a keepsake to cherish for a lifetime. Our couples are still telling us many years later how much they love their album and how they love looking through it with their children and their grandparents… over and over again. You chose us to capture your wedding story, why not let us design an album for you to truly showcase those moments and memories! Sure you can do it yourself and upload your images into an online template if you wish, but hands down I have never seen an album with the same quality, durability and breathtaking beauty as our Vision Art wedding albums.
Here is a sneak peek of Joanna and Dennis’ wedding album – we just had to make a studio sample for ourselves to share with all our 2015/16 couples that are coming in… we are in love with it’s elegance and beauty!
This gorgeous canvas carry pouch comes in several colours and patterns and protects your album when taking it around it to show friends and family or work colleagues; it also looks stylish on display in your own home.
the inside of the pouch is velvety smooth and soft so it won’t scratch your album cover
you can either choose a beautiful photo wrap cover like this one or we have a variety of genuine soft leather choices in several popular colours
you can see how thick the album is in this image – it’s sturdy and so well made – it also feels nice in your hands with it’s silky smooth matte or gloss finish
designing the full 24″ wide spreads is so fun for me – I love using a variety of page layouts to really showcase each gorgeous wedding image – this bouquet definitely needed to be shown as it’s own large single image; it was one of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen
I love including a couple of pages of black & white images in each album… of course it’s a personal preference, but some images really do look better and more dramatic in b/w (in my opinion)
this macro photo really shows an upclose look at the page thickness…. similar to a small child’s board book… these durable pages are built to last and can be turned many hundreds and thousands of times over generations and still look amazing – the clear coating protects your images from finger prints and dust as well
choosing the day’s most romantic or memorable moments is sometimes tough… but there are always a few that just stand out from the rest to me, like this moment when Dennis leaned in and whispered in Jo’s ear… that smile on her face… THAT moment needs to be remembered for always
the details are always an essential element of the day and need to be showcased on their own page… you have spent so much time (and money) choosing each and every one… when they all come together at the reception it’s simply gorgeous and you’ll want to remember them. Jo and Dennis chose a couture cake from The Luvvly Cake Co and their design details and inspiration in whites and creams with lots of sparkle were the work of Jackie Penner Events – stunningly beautiful for sure
Here you can see again how thick and durable the album is by the spine
and finally the back cover… just as beautiful as the front
Just like no two weddings are the same, nor are two albums. Each one is individually designed and then hand crafted. This album was designed in the 9×12 style but square options as large as 12×12 are also available.
