The First Kiss
September 5, 2010’s long weekend is one to be remembered by a lot of people. It was definitely one of the most beautiful weekends to get married, the grass lush green, birds chirping, and golfers golfing. Energy, character, and youthful passion were in the air and it was celebrated with an outdoor wedding at the Niakwa Country club.
With this backdrop in place and everything planned just right, Jillian and David made a memorable day. We love to cover the entire day as it really allows us to explore the dynamics of the family, the dynamics among the wedding party, and constructs a story from the whole day. The ladies were chatting away early in the morning at the salon “Hair Obsession” on Henderson Hwy, as many of the wedding party and guests were in from all over North America. The gentlemen were eagerly waiting for me to arrive so they could complete their ensembles and continue on with the day.
This particular highlights was strongly influenced by what unfolded before us as the day went on and what was revealed to us at the end of the day that made everything come together. There was special meaning to the first kiss at the ceremony and Jillian and David held true to themselves by waiting till this time as it really did signify their first kiss as a couple. And that brings to light why the gentlemen were hasty to get to the ceremony. Their friends and their family united in the fact that these two had character that was encouraging and uplifting to the point of it being a thread in their highlights. Hope you all enjoy Jillian and Davids highlights as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Special thanks to Photographer | Curtis Moore and Niakwa Golf Country Club.
Weddings In Winnipeg put on a fantastic 4 day wedding showcase spanning 4 venues and many talented and professional vendors. It was a pleasure talking with so many wonderful couples who where interested in having a wedding video. Things have changed in the world of wedding video’s and many of the couples had not seen this type of video produced for a wedding.
The first question I always asked was if they were thinking of getting a wedding video? Most of the couples would say, “kind of but not really sure”, then they would proceed with…. “however we have never seen this style of wedding video before”. My favourite questions from the couples were: Q: Do you pose people and make them do it again cause your video looks so perfect it must have been staged? A: Not at all, we want to only capture what really happened so there is no posing or set up on our part. Q: If you don’t stage things how did you get those beautiful shots? A: We really get to know each couple as much as possible and plan as much as possible before the wedding day so we can portray your character… and we have shot a lot of weddings so we anticipate as much as possible.
So, the people were amazing, the show was amazing, and the wedding planners were amazing with their fantastic displays and decor that were over the top! If you are thinking of a wedding video for next year definitely shoot us an email right away, dates are filling up! Here are the sample video’s we put together to show what each event was like. Looking forward to next years show!
October 16th, 2010. It was our final outdoor wedding of the season at The Gates in the middle of October, fantastic day! We were so pleased that the weather held out and Patti got her dream wedding outside. Patti is a sweetheart and her face had a constant smile on it. She was truly a happy bride. It was so awesome to see the joy and celebration that Ray and Patti were experiencing throughout the day. This is why we love weddings!
The trailer is a real tease, so enjoy! Chris and I had such a great day filming and absolutely enjoyed working with Jeremy Hiebert. Enjoy.

October 2, 2010 – Here is the trailer of Lauren and Adam’s wedding! What a beautiful fall weekend it was. We were so lucky to have a warm and sunny special day with no wind. Lauren and Adam are one of the nicest people we have ever met. It was a pleasure watching them enjoy the day they had work so hard to plan. We were honoured to be there to capture this fantastic day! Thank you so much!
Mark and Cody and I, as always, had way to much fun working together!
A very warm shout out to Jeremy Hiebert (jeremyhiebert.ca). It was a pleasure to work with you. Our stomachs hurt from all the laughing and good times we had!
Thanks to Lindsay who stepped in for Andrea Mancini of Soiree Event Planning (soireeplanning.ca/).
Here is a sneak peak of Scott & Stacy’s wedding!
The amazing part is you cannot tell how chilly the temperature was outside, being that it was around 10 degree’s. Scott, Stacy and the whole wedding party were willing and stoked to do just about anything with Bond from BLF Studios (blfstudios.com). Bond’s sneak peak of the photographs were unreal, can’t wait to see more! And Esther, Bond’s second shooter was a blast to work with as well. We loved the variety of locations and it was so awesome to be apart of documenting this day
Hands down, Scott & Stacy along with the whole party delivered the most memorable wedding to date. Chris Radtke and myself were pumped with the shots we got and are excited to put it all together.
August 15, 2010 – Creating a lasting memory for Dan & Baillie through their highlights video has been a rewarding process. Their journey through life to this point is what movies are made of, and the celebration was grand. These two have such a unique and interesting backstory which lead them to this day. They are a true living and breathing definition of the term soul mates. The family connections right down to the Rabbi’s exuberant energy made this day burst with excitement. To see how everyone gets into the festivities and celebrated Dan & Baillie’s marriage was amazing; Not to mention that the dance floor was rock’n all through dinner and into the night.
We were privileged to work beside Andrea Mancini from Soiree Event Planning , truly a pleasure. She took care of every detail for us. We can’t say how much we appreciated that! The Photographer was Ricardo Chvaicer. What a fun guy to work with. We truely enjoyed the laughs and colaboration all through out the day.
