WedLuxe Magazine Spring Winter 2017 Issue

Snowy days are for perus­ing the lat­est issue of Wed­Luxe Mag­a­zine and check­ing out Rouzhin and Naram’s wed­ding at the AGO Art Gallery of Ontar­io. We’re so hap­py to be fea­tured in the mag­a­zine and blog as the wed­ding video­g­ra­phers for this jaw-dropping cel­e­bra­tion and all of its Marie-Antoinette-inspired details.

Why do we love this wed­ding so much? Aside from com­plete­ly trans­form­ing each room at the AGO into enchant­ed gar­dens (bal­leri­nas et all), Rouzhin and Naram kept their love and their guests at the heart of their day. Their touch­ing vows provide an inti­mate nar­ra­tive that grounds their sto­ry amongst all the­se grandiose ele­ments. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Ethereal Styled Shoot at District 28

Back in ear­ly May, Alexan­dra from Blush & Bowties approached us to do a wed­ding styled shoot at Dis­trict 28. She had gath­ered an amaz­ing team of Toron­to wed­ding ven­dors and want­ed us on board to shoot some cre­ative ele­ments while doc­u­ment­ing how it all came togeth­er. There were so many things we loved about the project from that first talk — the blend­ing of indus­tri­al and ethe­re­al ele­ments, the incred­i­ble “white dome” room, and the sim­plic­i­ty of the con­cept, which would real­ly let the spaces speak for them­selves — so we set out to cre­ate a short piece that high­light­ed the­se ele­ments while telling the sto­ry of the shoot itself.

WedLuxe Magazine Winter Spring Issue 2015

It’s been a big mon­th for us here at Out­side In, hav­ing a hand­ful of our films fea­tured in some pret­ty awe­some blogs and pub­li­ca­tions. Blak­eny and Corey’s wed­ding film was just fea­tured on Style Me Pret­ty in Decem­ber and we’re so hap­py and incred­i­bly hum­bled to have two projects that we worked on last year fea­tured in WedLuxe’s Winter/Spring 2016 issue. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Iva + Chris — The things you want the most, you have to work the hardest to get.

It feels sur­re­al to only be shar­ing this film now in mid-december, when Iva and Chris’ wed­ding was actu­al­ly our first of the sea­son back in April. Every­one who was a part of this wed­ding knew in the ear­ly stages that it was des­tined to grace the pages of Wed­luxe, and so we’ve held off on post­ing their film (as hard as it’s been) until today when it pre­miered on the Wed­luxe blog!

As Chris men­tions in the video, he met Iva while wait­ing in line out­side of the Rehab pool par­ty in Las Veg­as. It was a ran­dom occur­rence but com­plete­ly ‘Iva and Chris’. They love Veg­as. In fact our talks over cof­fee always veered off into Chris con­vinc­ing us on vis­it­ing and how to prop­er­ly make the most of it once we were there. We knew the sto­ry of how they met would come up at some point dur­ing the day, but as we heard more about the elab­o­rate plan­ning and design that was going into the cer­e­mony and recep­tion spaces, we real­ized that this would be an impor­tant ele­ment of Iva and Chris’ cel­e­bra­tions. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Melissa + Steve — You are totally my favourite.

We’d like to think that if you met Melis­sa and Steve on any oth­er day in which they weren’t get­ting mar­ried, you would see exact­ly what you see in this film. That’s because their day was sim­ply ooz­ing with per­son­al­i­ty and every­thing just came togeth­er in a way that  allowed us to cre­ate a per­fect por­trait of who the­se two real­ly are.

We’ll start from the top. We first met Melis­sa and Steve this past win­ter. They’re wed­ding cin­e­matog­ra­phers them­selves (see Maple Tree Films) and so we imme­di­ate­ly hit it off over cof­fee; talk­ing about our jobs, our indus­try, and our favourite films of the past year. We dis­cussed their day, and with every detail, we became more and more excit­ed about every­thing they had planned.

Now over the next few months, we couldn’t stop run­ning into them every time we were in Toron­to. We’d see them at Tiff Bell Light­box on our way to catch a movie, we’d see Steve on Queen St. West, then Melis­sa in Zara a cou­ple of hours lat­er. See­ing them walk about the city, we real­ized what an inte­gral part of them Toron­to has become, and all the walk­ing around and quick loca­tion changes on the wed­ding day took on a much deep­er mean­ing with­in their film. Alongside the cou­ple, Toron­to is a huge char­ac­ter in this sto­ry and one that is loom­ing over every mile­stone of their day.

One evening, a few weeks before the wed­ding, we met for drinks at the Thomp­son Hotel just before head­ing up to see the rooftop in which they were plan­ning to share their first look, and we heard for the first time about their love for cof­fee. Now we love our cof­fee, and we have friends who are cof­fee fanat­ics, but no one real­ly loves cof­fee as much as Melis­sa and Steve. They went on and on about the dif­fer­ent types of cof­fee they reg­u­lar­ly drink and the dif­fer­ent ways they make it. Steve men­tioned that him and his grooms­men would be head­ing to Ear­ly Bird in the morn­ing to have siphon cof­fee and explained what exact­ly that was. We were so hap­py that their love for cof­fee was nat­u­ral­ly worked into their day and decid­ed we’d def­i­nite­ly have to tag along for that adven­ture. con­tin­ue read­ing »
