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!

“Today I’m marrying my forever dream girl!”
Over the years we have had the honour of capturing some pretty amazing wedding stories and we’ve spoken openly about how truly lucky we are to be there on the the biggest, most important day of people’s lives. Weddings are about bringing together two families and uniting them as one, it’s the promise from one to another that you will love, honour, respect and protect each other and be there for each other through the good times and the bad. As I listened to the vows that Krista and Mike said to one another it resonated with me and each of their guests – on this, their wedding day – a day planned in just 3 short weeks by Krista herself, it truly was about lifting each other up and supporting each other during the toughest of times.
Krista learned just 40 minutes before the ceremony was to start that her dad wasn’t going to be able to attend the wedding as he had just been admitted to hospital. She was overcome with emotion. Her brothers and mom rallied around her to make sure that her dream wedding would still take place. I knew that for every bride, and every couple, their wedding day goes by so quickly and that they barely remember any of the significant moments because the emotions, anxiety, excitement of everything going on really limits the memory from retaining too many of the important details. I knew, looking at Krista in those moments before she slipped into her gorgeous gown that her mind was only on her dad and that we simply had to capture the audio from their marriage vows and as many moments from the day in photographs so that she could share their wedding story with her dad and relive the moments, show him all the beautiful details she had planned so that her efforts were so very worth it.
After the lunch reception at the beautiful Cambridge Mill we all headed to Mike’s sister’s farm. What a photography dreamworld it was! Krista climbed up on a gorgeous horse for some bridal portraits, together she and Mike lied in tall grasses, canoed around a quaint pond and climbed hills of wild flowers… their photographs are simply stunning!
Today Krista and Mike came over to watch their slideshow and were overwhelmed with emotion watching and listening … a day that unfolded just 48 hours earlier was re-lived and can now be shared with her dad and all of their family and friends… forever! I’m so glad they are allowing us to post their slideshow here… it’s definitely one of my favourite weddings of all time. xo
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.

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!

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!

Alana and Mark’s wedding was absolutely breathtaking. The impeccable details, design and decor were pure magic. We are not surprised at all that it’s featured today by Wedluxe as part of their True Love, True Luxury wedding series. I’m so happy to finally be able to share some of the images from their special day and that many will get to enjoy them on the Wedluxe blog and Facebook page as well. It was a pleaure working alongside some incredible vendors: Makeup Worx, Candice and Alison Luxury Event Planners, Cake Opera Co, Susan Murray International, Sweet Peony Press, Dance Floor Decor and Creations by Gitta. We wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness!
I will never forget the first time we met with Kira and Mike many months ago. Kira said she envisioned her wedding to take place in non-traditional venue where all their friends and family could gather and celebrate for an entire weekend, not just a single day! I love this idea as it gave many a mini vacation in Niagara on the Lake, such a picturesque and beautiful place to spend time, especially with loved ones. Yesterday, we spent the morning with Kira and her girls at the Regent House, a gorgeous home. Monika and her Makeup Worx team were there to beautify all the lovely ladies. The guys jumped onto the Limo bus and headed to Niagara Falls for some mini putt in the morning; I loved that they all got dressed up in mismatched golf attire for the occasion.
After their 1st look in NOTL we headed to the fabulous Honsberger Estate in Jordan for photos followed by their beautiful ceremony and reception. Liz and Danielle at Gush Events did an amazing job at coordinating and making everything run smoothly and were also a great support to us by making sure we had everything we needed. Breathtaking floral design was provided by Mimosa Flowers and Liquid Entertainment had everyone dancing late into the night. The evening ended with a fantastic fireworks display that had everyone ooohing and awwwwing… of course we also heard some of those sounds and lots of laughter during their Same Day Edit. It did our hearts good to receive a standing ovation from the entire room after it played. We have grown really close to Kira and Mike over the past year and felt an immediate bond with their family and friends as well. We want to thank everyone for being so incredibly warm and inviting to our entire team yesterday… this was a wedding story we won’t soon forget! Enjoy your honeymoon in Switzerland xo

Last night Ana and Josh came to watch the premiere of their feature film and see their wedding photos. Other than a few sneak peek photos on facebook I haven’t really shared many of their photos because I really love to watch their faces and hear their voices as they see images and re-live moments from their wedding day for the first time. When I see an image that I personally love and then hear them say “oh, that’s a good one” or “wow, I love that one” it makes me realize again and again how lucky we are to capture such an amazing and important day in people’s lives. There were tears and laughter several times as they watched their film and when they left they already had a whole line up of places to go and people to share their memories with who were eagerly waiting their own premiere. As I climbed into bed last night I got a text from Ana saying they had gone through all of their photos and absolutely loved them! We are so proud and honoured to give these memories back to our amazing couples and their families and friends! Here are just a few of the photos from their wedding story.
Yesterday was a bit of a reunion for us as we captured Reissa + Kevin’s wedding story. So many of their friends and family were with us a few years ago as we were in Mexico for another beautiful wedding story. The sun was shining and the day was simply perfect. Reissa and Kevin were so looking forward to their Same Day Edit, experiencing their wedding day all over again during the reception with all their guests was really special. Congratulations you two and all the best for a happy and joyous marriage!
