Mia Principessa

In this quaint town of Lorette, located just outside of Winnipeg is the Parish of Notre Dame where Christa and Jeffrey were married.  The bell tower stands tall above the fabric of the land and the architectural painting on the ceiling speaks of it’s grandness.  At the end of the ceremony they walked out to the sound of bagpipes bellowing out from the upper balcony; the church rumbled under it’s resounding power and the truth is it made us jump as we were not expecting it.  It was a nice surprise.

Christa and Jeffrey’s highlight film is a vibrant reflection of their relationship. Together they experienced a long distant relationship while Jeffrey was studying in Boston and they also had their engagement in Italy.  With adventures and travels like these it was also fitting that their priest, Alan Forgarty, their long time friend resides in Rome.  Christa and Jeffrey expressed powerful tokens of affection through their letters, gifts, and their vows, all of which we could use to carry their film along.  We encourage our couples to include the people that mean so much to them. Christa and Jeffrey chose their Grandmother to perform a special reading in the ceremony, adding a very personal touch to the film.

We hope you enjoy their film as much as we had crafting it together!

Thanks again to Joel Ross of Joel Ross Photography for making the day so enjoyable and to Emma Singn of Events by Emma for the incredible design and event planning.  We also love working with Dale and Melissa from The Gates because of their premium food and service.

Icelandic Scenics

Driving out to Gimli (Manitoba’s Icelandic community) early in morning had us excited for a water front cottage feel to Heather and Timothy’s same day edit.  There was one thing that we were nervous about and that was the dark clouds that threatened the outdoor picturesque filming we would be able to do.  And we are so thankful to say it couldn’t have turned out much better than it did for the entire day’s schedule.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Waterfront Center which had fabulous lighting and the atmosphere fit so well for their celebration.  We were so thankful that their first look on the pier turned out beautifully with the sun shining down.  They were both so ecstatic to see each other that Timothy bolted as soon as he could hear that Heather was close behind and they were so ready to get married.  This location is particularly meaningful for the family with its history of spending time together at the lake.  And now having been married here it will forever hold deep meaning with them.

Thanks to Photographer Rebecca Croft for a day of fun. Always good to work with you!

Dancing, rain or shine

Well, here we are on a brand new site for Paperback Films. 2011 has been a fantastic year for us, and to help break in this brand new blog, we wanted to share a new film. Late last summer, we met John and Rhosan. Our first impressions were “this is a couple chalf full of energy”. They both instantly knew what they were after and we were happy to have had the chance to work with them and be a part of their special day together. It was so fun going back and forth with different ideas for their films. Earlier in the spring, we had filmed a Portraiture of them as a couple (check that out here) which gave us a chance to dive further into who they were – outside of their actual wedding event. Rain or shine, these two make the best of any occasion and always have fun.

We didn’t present a Same Day Edit, but instead presented their Portraiture film to all of their guests; all watching together for the first time. It was a perfect introduction to the evening and we had a similar exciting experience as showing a Same Day Edit. Coralee of Red Photo Co was so great to work with (she always is) and it was a treat having Rebecca there as well. Funny story; these girls will do just about anything to get a good shot. There’s a little hint of what I’m referring to in the bts photos :) I look forward to many more adventures at more weddings with those ladies. Thanks to Cody who helped film their wedding with us. Hope you enjoy, and while you’re at it – take a look around, drop us a line and leave a comment or two. Music licensed through With Etiquette.

Prince Philip…

Incredible heartfelt couples that are truly head over heels for each other are only found in fairy tales, right?  Well we assure you they happen in real life and when we had our first meeting with these two it was so amazing to sit and laugh, chatting about all kinds of things and hearing about how they met.   Yes, a couple truly in love.   Just a self realization note to add in here; we have found that after our first meeting with our couples we generally have a good idea of what they are like and what they are into, and when the wedding day comes around a different part of them comes to life.  So, for Ayli and Phil we would say we were completely mesmerized by how close they are to their families and how head over heels they really are for each other.  The first look was the much anticipated moment of the day and watching Phil’s reaction to seeing Ayli for the first time could melt anyone’s heart.  Phil is a groom that we would describe as a noble, upstanding gentleman, who will stand firm through the test of time.  Our utmost respect and adoration for these two, you both are incredibly loving people!

The Beat…

Ayli and Phil like a wide variety of music and we were very inspired by Adele, as Ayli had her playing in the background while getting ready.  We like to be inspired by new music and artists that fit the Paperback Films feel and for this highlights we were drawn into the intensity of Arms by Christina Perri.  Being able to get in so close at the ceremony and being right part of the action helped to bring their story along and as the song builds you feel the breaking of the glass approaching, symbolizing the broken world we live in with the hope that new love and life can heal all those who suffer.  At the sound of the breaking glass, family and friends shout “Mazel Tov!” which means good luck and congratulations.  Then the happily ever after comes…
