When we first met with Kathy and George about their wedding videography and wedding video, we knew this was a wedding couple with spark! When we arrived at The Hair Studio at Ashgrove Spa to film bridal prep of Kathy & some of her bridesmaids’ having their hair done, we were greeted by a bride who was totally enthused and in a party mood! That set the tone for a joy filled and exciting wedding day. The couple’s wedding ceremony took place in Markham at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. When we walked inside for the first time, we were very impressed with the beautiful church murals and mosaics, the unique dome ceiling, rich colors, and dark, rich wood trim everywhere. It made for beautiful wedding cinematography! The ceremony was poignant and sweet, and immediately after, the happy couple were whisked away to downtown Toronto in a white vintage Rolls Royce. As wedding videographers, we love a jaw dropping location for the creative videography session and for interiors, it’s hard to beat the charming Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Front Street. The happy couple rented a gorgeous suite for their wedding photos and cinematography and we captured some stunning shots using steadicam and cinematic slider. An hour later we were shooting video of the elegantly decorated reception hall at the historic Eglinton Grand in midtown Toronto. The room was elegantly decorated with an art deco theme, most stunning were the lofty feather adorned centerpieces and the lavish head tables. The wedding reception was fantastic… one of the highlights of the evening was a surprise performance by an aerialist who provided a Cirque de Soliel type performance, performing breathtaking acrobatic maneuvers some 20 feet directly above the crowd. As you’ll see in this highlights wedding video, this was a wedding full of fun and joy… a wedding to remember! Enjoy!

We packed our cameras and wedding videography gear June 19th, leaving Toronto and the GTA bound for Amanda and Devon’s June 21st wedding in Kelowna, British Columbia. The Okanagan valley was stunning – fertile hills dressed in lush vineyards, wineries, fruit orchards – slender, winding Okanagan lake at it’s center – all embraced by tall, gentle, timber-covered mountains. Devon grew up in Kelowna and he and Amanda decided it would be a wonderful setting to be married in. For their wedding venue, they decided on Bottega – a beautiful boutique hotel set above the valley against the mountains. Their wedding day was amazing – a lovely bride, a dashing groom, the glorious weather and everything unfolded perfectly! Wedding videographers are drawn to the incredible beauty and special moments of a wedding… we were incredibly blessed with both at this destination wedding. Some favorite moments our wedding videography captured: the couple’s touching first look in the woods, their lovely outdoor ceremony with it’s poignant champagne toast, and their unique doughnut wedding cake. Special thanks to guest videographer Ryan Tebbutt of Kelowna’s Chelsea Ryan Wedding Cinema who teamed up with our lead wedding videographer John Summerfield to capture the day’s magic. Enjoy Amanda and Devon’s Wedding Highlights film!

Isabel and Michael’s wedding theme, basis for their Twitter hash tag, and recent mantra, is their invented phrase, “It’s kind of a big deal!”. We completely agree! It was definitely a big deal. A Toronto wedding videographers, we love the many stunning wedding venues that our wedding couples choose in the city and greater Toronto area. So many beautiful places, and one of our consistent top ten favorites is the stately Liberty Grand, where Isabel and Michael decided to have both their wedding ceremony and reception. After their bridal prep and groom prep, the couple had their touching first look in the courtyard. We then made our way to nearby Liberty Village with it’s restored 19th century architecture for their creative wedding video and wedding photos session. The wedding ceremony was lovely and included beautiful Filipino wedding traditions and customs such as the unity candle, coins, cord, and veil. Amazing couple, amazing venue, amazing wedding day. We hope you enjoy it through our wedding videography and the result, Isabel and Michael’s wedding highlights film. After all…. it’s kind of a big deal!

Mia and Mat’s wedding day was situated on the northern edge of the Greater Toronto Area in the Bradford and Newmarket area. As we approached Mia’s location where our wedding videography would begin with her bridal prep, we were struck by the understated beauty of this area. Adjacent to the Holland Marsh, the Oak Ridges Moraine and Lake Simcoe, it’s a rich agricultural area surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and southern Ontario woodlands. It really gives you a smalltown, rural area feeling. At the house where Mia was getting ready, we felt very welcome by her sweet, warm family. Mat, we heard, had been busy washing and babying his pickup truck for the big day and was surrounded by his groomsmen. The Roman Catholic church for Mia and Mat’s wedding ceremony in Bradford was huge and quite beautiful. Our wedding cinematography captured all of their touching ceremony. Mia is of Filipino descent and the lovely Filipino wedding traditions of the coins, cord, and veil were a very important part of their ceremony. When we finally saw the wedding reception venue, we were delighted. Madsen’s in Newmarket is very unique, a very spacious greenhouse setting with trees, and tropical plants of all description everywhere. There’s even a beautiful waterfall inside. Needless to say, it was a beautiful setting for their wedding reception and provided a perfect ending to their wedding day!

“Kanan & Arif at Palais Royale, Toronto” Produced by Summerfield Films | Directed by John Summerfield | Videography by John Summerfield & Sri Vemuri

Kanan & Arif held their beautiful summer wedding ceremony and reception at the glamorous Palais Royale, on the Toronto waterfront. Filming their wedding video at this venue was such a treat… their ceremony took place on the patio at the water’s edge and their reception was celebrated in the Palais Royale’s nostalgic ballroom just a few steps away. Some highlights for us were the touching ceremony, Kanan’s mehndi session, and the wedding couple’s first dance where it was plain to see that they completely adore each other.

Vivian & James’ wedding day came, accompanied by weather like a western Chinook; after weeks of unbearable arctic deep freeze, the Toronto winter warmed up to within a few degrees of 0C. it was like a sign to all attending their wedding, that Vivian & James day would truly be a special one. Indeed it was. It was our first time filming at the King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto and our wedding videography captured many amazing images of the grand venue. There we many amazing moments throughout the day, foremost of which were of course, Vivian & James’ touching wedding ceremony in the stunning Sovereign Ballroom and memorable reception in the opulent Vanity Fair Ballroom. The couple and bridal party’s photo and video session took place at palatial Union Station on Front Street. It was an amazing winter wedding and we invite you to watch their gorgeous highlights video!
