Same Day Edits
A collection of SDE Films by Paperback Films
With All My Heart
Emma + Colin both light up when they are together. They’re a quiet, romantic couple that really take in and appreciate all the little moments that happen throughout a day and the day of their wedding was no different. Both enjoying a range of activities including travel, sports, watching movies, telling jokes and laughing. The ceremony was especially significant with Emma’s father leading the ceremony, bringing everyone together through well chosen, heartfelt words. It’s always a pleasure working with Joel Ross & Jennifer Webber.
Colin really gets Emma and is able to recognize, help and encourage her to follow those dreams as he manages to follow his own. Later at the reception, Colin had shared a quote from his mother about the important things on relationships which they both value and hold dear. “It isn’t so much how often you gaze into each-other’s eyes as long as you put in the effort to gaze in the same direction.” How true and what a beautiful quote to draw on together.
Behind The Scenes
A Wedding Planner’s Wedding
We’ve always find a couple scenarios that could potentially make us get really nervous when filming. Things like bad weather; it can really change the look and feel of the day. It was something else for this wedding. It was filming someone whom you deeply respect and know as a friend. You always want to make the story perfect. The butterfly’s where of plenty.
We have known Andrea for a long time, both personal and professionally. We usually have the great privilege of working with her event planning company, Soiree Event Planning. She has literately seen us in every scenario possible, especially during same day edit. So naturally, when she asked us to film her wedding, we were thrilled! We also had the privilege of working along side our friend Jeremy Hiebert.
What we love about this film is its such a simple, timeless story. Andrea could have done anything she wanted. She has seen it all. But she kept everything meaningful and elegant for herself and her husband Ryan. A simple expression of exactly who they are. It was a privilege to be apart of this day. We were able to once again, not only work along side Andrea, a friend, but were also a witness of their commitment and celebration.
Behind The Scenes
Pièce De Résistance
Our goal is always to capture people’s personalities and their characteristics in a film. It’s a challenge to fit everything into a same day edit (given the time constraint), but we’re always up for a good challenge. As colourful (planning by Soiree, flowers by Academy) and detailed (check out those cards by OnePlusOne and photography by Lani Elias) as everything was that day, for us – a story is everything.
Dena and Dustin are an amazing couple. What really stood out to us was their ceremony. It was so personal and sincere. They sealed a time capsule during their ceremony containing wine, glasses, the day’s newspaper, a dress Dena wore on their first date and their vows. Sealed for 10 years, being opened again 2023. Imagine when they both look through these things again? It’s a whole other way to experience the wedding day again.
Weddings are generally full of suprises. Dena and Dustin’s biggest suprise (next to the full custome chicken dance at the reception) was during their ceremony when they decided to take time after their vows to honour their close family sitting in the first two rows. They brought each of them roses and hugs and as they went down the isles, you could feel the warmth and awe everyone had for this newly married couple. It was a powerful moment and it spoke so well of their character.
