Tale of two cities

Lainey and Paul grew up down the street from each other in the city of Winnipeg, went to the same elementary school and attended the same summer camp only to meet and fall in love in the city of Toronto. Let’s add one more point, the connection took place on Facebook with the help of some friends and family hoping that this match was meant to be. With the past bringing them so close together you would think they would have many things in common, yet their differences make them the wonderful and engaging couple they are. We wish them the most joyous and adventurous marriage possible!

We had an incredible time filming their wedding which took place at the Fort Garry Hotel and worked along side Curtis Moore Photography, which is always a highlight for us.

The Pizza Party

Who knew that going to a pizza part just to help a friend would lead you to the love of your life. Cindy & Will know exactly how that story turns out. Right from the first meeting with these two, we could tell there something special between them. Cindy couldn’t take her eyes off of Will all day. She was with out a doubt getting married to her one true love. Will is someone who commands a room as we heard and experienced many times throughout the day (what a great guy). We are so happy to have been able to put this film together for them. They have a great story we have been able to tell. Something we hope they will remember for many many years to come.

It was great working with Kamp Photography – An absolute professional and great guy to hang out with all day. As we have become accustomed to, The Gates on Roblin is an amazing venue. We appreciate everything you do for us. Enjoy the Film!

Ashley + Ryan | Highlights

A Gift from Heaven

Like the title says, it was the way these two came together. It was really interesting to listen to the pastor go through the history of how Ashely and Ryan’s parents met as couples which lead to the story of how Ashley & Ryan finally met. Its not every day you hear the path that people take to eventually find each other. Ashley & Ryan are a very special couple who were destined to meet. It was a pleasure to spend the day with Ryan, the enthusiastic happy guy. Ashley was just the same, her sweet smile and positive demeanour created a perfect recipe for everyone around them. You could feel the connection they had with each other and their family and friends. It created an atmosphere of celebration and appreciation.

We were blessed to have been a part of this day. We don’t take it for granted one bit. Couple trust us to create a memory of the day that will live with them for a very long time. We wish them all the best in their lives together. They are truly each others soul mates. Thanks to Lucky Girl Photography, we love working with you, what else can we say :). Enjoy the film!

When You Smile, I Smile

From humble beginnings and a chance meeting, Brittany and Kyle have a passion filled story to share. Looking back at how they were instantly lost in each others present’s while meeting up at Earls with a group of friends, it is easy to see how their relationship was kickstarted into high gear. Kyle is a passionate individual. Brittany is an equally passionate individual. When these two are together their connection is palpable and it is clear from their Feature Film.

From a morning game of football to a hot delicious breakfast, the men made the most of their opportunity to have some fun together. The ladies had their morning PJ’s on and took advantage of the time to soak in all the excitement. The day was absolutely perfect for a roof top ceremony at the WAG and we had an incredibly fun day with the whole wedding party.

The day was also made extra special by all the vendors and we do want to point out the wonderful experience we had with DJ Brenton from Summer Bounce and Izabela Rachwal from Rachwal Photography.

 

Anna + Barak | Highlights

It’s Anna, Right?

Anna was described by her sister as being brilliant, kind hearted, athletic, driven, determined, well travelled and at times extremely excitable. A fitting description, we can assure you. Meeting Anna the first time over coffee and again the morning of her wedding, she was so excited about her wedding. And so were we. Her parents were so happy to see Anna and Barak come together as a couple; they both have a great appreciation for family which meant so much.

Barak is a practical & friendly person and it was said that he has a gift for friendship. He’s the one who would get things organized when they all went on camping trips. Barak has Hebrew significance meaning “lightning”, “to give light” and “to be visible”. At the reception, his father had established that the heroic side of that name’s meaning relates to his position as a teacher. He’d coached the students at his school into having a championship volleyball team.

Anna & Barak are both a joy to be around; they’re extremely fun. It was also great working with Moore Photography, Aspire Studios, & Soiree Event Planning.

Nada + John | Feature

The Döner

The first time we met with Nada & John they were set on hosting their wedding day in the Rocky Mountains. Their idea of a perfect wedding was being surrounded by the beauty and majestic landscape along with their closest family and friends.  The Paintbox Lodge is a cozy boutique hotel in the heart of Canmore, Alberta which the entire family could enjoy together.  Having the newly joined families relaxing and dinning together at the lodge was the perfect way to seal this bond.

Nada & John’s story is filled with adventure and includes a group of hilarious friends that set up their first meeting.  Jessie & Henry saw the potential the two had together and didn’t stop laying down hints that the two of them should meet.  With the Calgary Stampede coming up it was a perfect time to arrange a meet up.  And, as they say, the rest is history.  With their mutual love of the mountains and outdoor lifestyle they quickly became a couple that sent a lot of time in Canmore.  The ceremony was held at the Alpine Club of Canada over looking the treed valley and mountain tops.  The Tavern 1883‘s log cabin style restaurant was a great way to incorporate the love of the outdoors for the reception.

We had an incredible time working with Jenn from Open Images and her images of the wedding are gorgeous!

Cassandra + Nigel | Same Day Edit

Mementos and Sombreros

Nigel’s career brings him all over the world and so, naturally, Cassandra & Nigel’s lives go hand in hand with traveling, trying new restaurants, wine tastings and socializing. One of Nigel’s groomsmen’s favourite moments was when Nigel lead Team Canada and the tournament and scoring in Helsinki with a big 6 goals and 11 points in Hockey.

Over the years, they had collected small mementos to one day look back upon. As their wedding day approached – a day planned with a lot of care and thought, they both decided to look through their memory box. They also decided to each carefully choose one item to share with each other the morning of their wedding. Nigel thoughtfully picked out what he said was an easy choice. Because it was what he considered their start; a U2 ticket. It was a happy moment together, after first dating in Chicago they were finally able to go out as a couple in Winnipeg. Cassandra was hoping to find that ticket Nigel bought for Cassandra in 2010 to come visit him in Atlanta. It was what she considered the beginning of their relationship. While looking for it, she found an item he had left for her that same fall when he had come to visit her.  This made her realize just how long ago she had fallen in love and so, here they are three and a half years later.

We had the incredible privilege of weaving together their story into this Sam Day Edit to share with all their friends and family gathered that evening at The Gates on Roblin along with the very talented Simply Rosie Photography.
