Jess + Misha — You knocked my socks off hard.

As Jess and Misha’s offi­ciant, Tracey, so elo­quent­ly puts it near the open­ing of this wed­ding film: love can’t be defined by any sin­gle moment. It’s all the lit­tle moments. It’s every moment.

Love can’t be defined by any sin­gle moment. It’s all the lit­tle moments. It’s every moment.

This is a sen­ti­ment that not only rings true for Jess and Misha, but also for their multi-layered nar­ra­tive, which draws from their read­ings, cards and vows to cre­ate a piece that weaves togeth­er each moment from this incred­i­ble day. Whether it’s some­thing as mon­u­men­tal as the couple’s chore­o­graphed hip-hop dance rou­tine or some­thing as spon­ta­neous as Jess peak­ing out her hotel win­dow to catch Misha and the grooms­men walk­ing by, each moment — big or small — is a key com­po­nent of this beau­ti­ful­ly com­plex sto­ry. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Leah + Marco — Lee found her Fini.

There was an over­whelm­ing sense of excite­ment sur­round­ing Leah and Marco’s wed­ding day, not just to cel­e­brate a mar­riage 10 years in the mak­ing but, to every­one in the know, it was the last evo­lu­tion of a wed­ding that had changed, shift­ed, and trans­formed many times in the months lead­ing up to it. What was in its ear­ly stages a Cal­i­for­nia vine­yard wed­ding became an ele­gant and ethe­re­al affair at the King Edward Hotel’s recent­ly reopened Crys­tal Ball­room, brought to life by Blush and Bowties and White Oak, whose pop­py arrange­ments had us like whoa.

What was in its ear­ly stages a Cal­i­for­nia vine­yard wed­ding became an ele­gant and ethe­re­al affair at the King Edward Hotel’s recent­ly reopened Crys­tal Ballroom.

Leah and Mar­co first reached out to us when they stum­bled upon our work last Sep­tem­ber. They loved our cin­e­matog­ra­phy, our sto­ry­telling, and the way our wed­ding films framed a cou­ple and the emo­tion and inti­ma­cy of their rela­tion­ship and their day. They want­ed just that, but one thing that was clear from the begin­ning, is that they want­ed their film to explode with excite­ment. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Tanya + Michael — Me without you is like Mowgli without Balu.

Every once in a while, a set­ting or place becomes such a strong third char­ac­ter in the sto­ry that its pres­ence is felt through­out the entire piece. Such is the case for Tanya and Michael’s wed­ding film, where the breath­tak­ing land­scapes of Huntsville, Ontario helped estab­lish and con­nect the dif­fer­ent ele­ments in this beau­ti­ful narrative.

When we first start­ed tak­ing to T + M about wed­ding videog­ra­phy over a year and a half ago, they men­tioned Deer­hurst Resort was a place that was dear to their heart. So nat­u­ral­ly, Michael got ready at the resort, Tanya spent the morn­ing at their cot­tage on the Deer­hurst grounds, and the evening con­clud­ed at one of the resort’s ball­rooms, over­look­ing the scenic wilder­ness and glassy waters of Penin­su­la Lake. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Brittany + Mitch — You are the protein to my salad.

As lay­ered and intri­cate as this sto­ry is, Brit­tany and Mitch’s love lies at the heart of it, pro­vid­ing a con­stant to the nar­ra­tive that makes each ele­ment of their day flow organ­i­cal­ly into the next. Whether it’s the couple’s own per­son­al vows, a rabbi’s address, or a loved one’s speech, they all lend to the sto­ry of Brit­tany and Mitch and the love they share, which is infec­tious by the way it emi­nates from every sin­gle frame of their wed­ding film.

With tru­ly per­son­al vows exchanged moments before the cer­e­mo­ny under the pine trees that line Cam­bi­um Farms’ back field, a mag­i­cal Jewish/Macedonian cer­e­mo­ny accent­ed by the per­fect­ly dif­fused sun­light that made its way through the holes and gaps in between the wood­en pan­els of the barn, tra­di­tion­al dances, an inti­mate first look, and all the moment in between each of these mile­stones, Brit­tany and Mitch’s wed­ding film tugs at our heart strings and gives us all the feels.

Katrina + Brett — With you is exactly where I’m supposed to be.

From very ear­ly on, Kat­ri­na and Brett told us that wed­ding videog­ra­phy was one of the most impor­tant ele­ments of their day and the keep­sake they were look­ing for­ward to the most. That didn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly change our approach, but it did spark much excite­ment going into their cel­e­bra­tion at the scenic Kurtz Orchards in Nia­gara on the Lake. They were excit­ed for us to lend our style and approach to their wed­ding day and we were excit­ed to tell their sto­ry and wan­der through the vine­yards at sun­set with them.

As is the case with all our NHL cou­ples, the hard­est part was get­ting to a meet­ing where we can hash out all our ideas. Because Kat­ri­na and Brett live in Wash­ing­ton dur­ing the hock­ey sea­son, we weren’t able to sit down with them until a cou­ple of weeks before the wed­ding day, but once we did, we were com­plete­ly cap­ti­vat­ed by the warm and inti­mate cel­e­bra­tion they were plan­ning. con­tin­ue read­ing »
