We first met Carmela and Andrey at a Starbucks one rainy day in Mississauga. After an hour together, two things were clear… they are a sweet couple very much in love, and we wanted to film their special day! Carmela is a make-up artist whose work includes doing bridal party make-up for weddings and we were flattered that with her experience and connections, she and Andrey chose us for their wedding videography. The couple was married in a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony in the garden at Ascott Parc, in one of the prettiest gazebos we’ve encountered. The reception that followed nearby was a spirited and enthusiastic celebration! Enjoy their wedding highlights film!

We loved learning that Sandra & Anthony first met at a wedding several years ago! How fitting that one day they should marry each other! They were married in a church in Richmond Hill, and our creative wedding videography session with them was at the beautiful Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens near Toronto’s Yonge & Lawrence. Their wedding reception followed at LeParc in Markham. It was an amazing day, we were so happy they chose us as their wedding videographers!
“Thank you SO much! We love it!!!! You are so talented. Thank you again for everything you have done for us on our special day. It was fun having you be a part of it 🙂 can’t wait to see the rest!”
-Sandra & Anthony
Cailey and Nigel have a wonderfully romantic story about how they met for the first time on a photography tour in Europe. It’s so amazing when love reaches down and scoops people up in such amazing ways… and we get to film their wedding day!! We loved working with them and are so happy they chose us as their wedding videographers! This clearly lovestruck couple chose the regal Hart House at University of Toronto as the venue for their wedding day. Their ceremony was held outside in the courtyard, followed by cocktails and their wedding reception in the great hall.
“Thank you so much for the video! We love it! We’ve watched it a million times already 🙂 Thank you for capturing the beauty of the day so well, and for getting a great shot of me opening Nigel’s gift! And the first look!We’re really excited to see the full-length video… Thank you again for doing a great job on the day.”

Sarah & Ivan’s big day started out with Ivan and his groomsmen on the golf course for a wedding morning round while Sarah and her bridesmaids were getting ready a short distance away. On both their minds was the weather. the plan was for an outdoor ceremony but rain was a very real possibility. Once everyone was ready in gowns and tuxedos, Sarah and her father met for their touching first look. A short time after, Sarah and Ivan saw each other for the first time on their wedding day during their emotional reveal. Their ceremony was amazing – one of the most beautiful and heartfelt of our wedding season, with vows that touched everyone in attendance deeply. And we’re happy to report that the rain… well it decided to go somewhere else!
“Thanks John. We love it!!!! You did an amazing job. It’s absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to see the full feature film 🙂 Thanks again!!”
-Sarah & Joey
Sheena and George are a very sweet couple and we were so excited to be part of their July wedding day. The bride was breathtaking and the groom was pure class. They were married at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on McCaul Street, a stone’s throw from the AGO. Outside, the church’s stone exterior is massive and imposing, but inside is a very different matter. As you’ll see in their wedding highlights, the interior is heavenly, spacious and airy. It was an amazing setting for a beautiful ceremony. Sheena & George chose stately Osgoode Hall in downtown Toronto for their photo and video shoot, which we think was a perfect choice. Their reception was celebrated at Liberty Grand and was an elegant, memorable event. It really was very sweet wedding day!
“Hi John, I am in tears! You completely melted my heart and my family too is just filled with good emotions and have only the best things to say about you. What you have captured for us is bigger than any gift we received for our wedding.”
For this Toronto area wedding, we happily logged quite a few miles for Vanessa and Michael’s special day. It all began with video coverage of Vanessa and her bridesmaids getting ready at the regal One King West Hotel at King & Yonge in downtown Toronto. Meanwhile, our second videographer was filming with Michael, who was getting ready with his groomsmen near Bloor Village. Once the bride and groom and their wedding party were ready and dressed in their respective locations, everyone headed for Mississauga. Michael and Vanessa’s wedding ceremony at Cristo Rei Church was simply beautiful! Then we packed our video gear and headed back into the city to the University of Toronto. Shortly after, the bride and groom arrived and we did a creative video session with them at Knox College, a stunning venue for both wedding videography and photography. Last stop, The Grand Luxe in North York for the wedding reception. When we walked in and saw the hall, our jaws dropped! The decor was amazing, dark purple and unique centerpieces as you’ll see in their Highlights video. The evening was amazing, even including the very cool artistry of an aerialist and a first for us, a performance by the talented and gutsy Grand Luxe bartenders who set their 30-foot long bar and a pyramid of glasses on fire! Congratulations Vanessa & Michael on your marriage and an incredibly memorable wedding day!
As Toronto wedding videographers, we’ve been very fortunate when it comes to weather at the weddings we film. Our video cameras and audio equipment don’t love rain and neither of course do our wedding couples. Inevitably however, rain clouds do eventually catch up with us as they did this past September during Kaylee and Jamie’s wedding day. It was a beautiful setting at Eagles Nest Golf Club, a venue we love with it’s grand stone and timber lodge. Just minutes before their ceremony started, the rain arrived. We have huge admiration for the bride and groom at what happened next. The umbrellas came out, Kaylee and Jamie pressed forward, and they got married! When all was said and done, the rain didn’t define their wedding day. It was a beautiful celebration as you will see in their wedding highlights video.
