There’s something about a wedding at a winery that is so unique and wonderful to behold. As Toronto wedding videographers, we film all over the city at many urban venues, most of them quite breathtaking. However, on occasion we get the opportunity to drive beyond the city limits and film weddings in some of the sweet rural venues that lie near the edges of the GTA. Willow Springs Winery in the countryside near Stouffville is just such a rural venue, and the spot Joanne and Tim decided on as the place where they would be married. Their wedding day was a busy one with no shortage of activity to capture for their wedding video: bride and groom prep, door games, tea services in two different locations, their first look, and that’s just for starters! Their day was brilliant, sunny, and beautiful. The wedding couple were thrilled, oh so photogenic, and as they should be… very much in love. Our video cameras caught many special moments, which we’d like to share with you here. Enjoy Joanne and Tim’s wedding highlights film!

“Nicole & John at 99 Sudbury, Toronto” Produced by Summerfield Films | Directed by John Summerfield | Videography by John Summerfield & Sri Vemuri
As wedding videographers, our work usually begins the morning of the wedding. However, after our first meeting with Nicole & John, it was agreed that a wedding videography related trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia several months before their wedding was a must. You see, Nicole grew up in Nova Scotia and much of her family and many of her friends are there. So this past June, we arrived in Halifax and started filming a bit early for their wedding video. First was their engagement party at a rustic family cottage on a picturesque lake a half-hour from Halifax. Friends and family gathered to celebrate Nicole & John’s engagement and approaching wedding with music, food, and a very touching lakeside candlelight ceremony. The next evening, celebrations took place at an East Coast Party at a waterfront restaurant in nearby Dartmouth. Several months later, on a Saturday in September we captured Nicole & John’s wedding day. It was a magic day with many memorable moments. Their downtown Toronto wedding ceremony was held at a Catholic church followed by a their reception at the loft-like venue 99 Sudbury near Liberty Village. Their east coast celebrations AND their wedding day were a lot to fit into their 3-4 minute highlights wedding video but we think we did pretty well! Enjoy!
We were a bit concerned during the week leading up to Lauren & Jamie’s wedding, due to persistent unsettled rainy weather. Thankfully, Saturday finally arrived and along with it, perfect sunny skies. As Toronto wedding videographers, we’ve filmed weddings all over the GTA, but this was our first time filming at the world class Glen Abbey Golf Club. Lauren and Jamie’s Oakville wedding was beautiful and sweet. The couple met each other for the first time on their wedding day at the scenic Gairloch Gardens, followed by their wedding ceremony and reception at Glen Abbey. We enjoyed capturing many special moments during the day with our wedding videography. One question we are asked frequently is about the axe the couple used to cut their wedding cake. The answer – Jamie is a firefighter, so the miniature fire axe was a fitting choice! Enjoy Lauren and Jamie’s wedding highlights!
Planning an outdoor wedding can be a gamble at anytime of year but the end of October is definitely a risky proposition. In Maggie and Jimmy’s case, the weather came through and as you’ll see in this wedding video, their wedding ceremony went off without a hitch. The beautiful Eagle’s Nest Golf Club just a few minutes north of Toronto was the venue for their day. We wedding videographers love breathtaking wedding decor and we were amazed at the reception room wedding planner extraordinaire Wendy Lee of Asian Fusion Wedding and her team put together! Wedding videography is such a labour of love when a wonderful couple, great weather, majestic venue and stunning decor all come together as it did for this wedding! Enjoy Maggie and Jimmy’s lovely wedding film!

Nancy & Mina began their wedding day in Mississauga for their bridal and groom prep, and were married in an afternoon ceremony there at a Coptic Orthodox Church. Everyone then hopped into the limo and travelled to Cambridge (near Kitchener-Waterloo) for their reception at the Cambridge Mill. What a fabulous venue, rustic and historic, right on the sleepy Grand River… so picturesque! The guest and head tables featured centerpieces and other decorative elements that were equally as rustic as the Mill, incorporating materials like old barnboard, burlap and mason jars. A couple of high points for us on the wedding videography side were the cigars that came out during wedding photos by the river (enjoyed by girls and boys alike!), and the grand entrance by the wedding couple, which ignited a very intense Harlem Shake by the bridal party.
“Samara & Ami’s Wedding at BAYT, Toronto” Produced by Summerfield Films | Directed by John Summerfield | Videography by John Summerfield & Sri Vemuri
Samara and Ami were married and celebrated their reception at BAYT – Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto, an Orthodox Jewish Shul in the Greater Toronto Area. This was the first Orthodox Jewish wedding we’ve had the privilege of filming, and we were in awe of the beauty, joy, grace, and deep sense of family evident throughout the day. There were many highlights for us on this wedding day… the powerful dancing and singing of the men as they spirited Ami to Samara for the lowering of her wedding veil… the excitement in the couple’s eyes as they saw each other for the first time in a week… the processional to their ethereal chuppa … their deafening grand entrance into the reception… and the dancing!!! This reception was far and away the most energetic, joyous, intense and enthusiastic celebration we have ever witnessed!
