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!
