First and foremost, Jacqueline & Shane were a very laid back couple and they were a pleasure to work with. They were both very easy going and were very comfortable in front of our cameras when we were videographing them throughout the day.
On Friday, October 11, we traveled to Hamilton for the third time this year to videograph Jacqueline & Shane’s wedding. We started at 10:30AM in the morning and our team arrived separately at Hamilton & Stoney Creek to film Jacqueline & Shane getting ready in the morning. The weather was perfect and the sunlight looked amazing reflecting on the country scenery. As per our suggestion, Jacqueline & Shane decided to exchange wedding gifts to each other in the morning. We made sure to capture all of the details of those emotional moments.
At around 2PM, we traveled to the Royal Botanical Gardens (680 Plains Rd West, Burlington) for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony started at 3:30PM and lasted only for 30 minutes. What really touched our heart was listening to Jacqueline & Shane exchanging their wedding vowels which they wrote for each other. It was also a very heart warming moment to see Shane cry as he first saw Jacqueline walking down the isle.
After the wedding ceremony ended, we did a bit of wedding photos & creative video session at the Royal Botanical Gardens of Ontario. At around 5PM, we traveled to the Waterfront Centre located in Hamilton (555 Bay St) for the wedding reception. Jacqueline & Shane and the rest of the wedding party made their entrance at 6PM in the evening. There were many memorable speeches in the evening, one of the bridesmaid even performed a rap song during her speech.
The night ended with the couple, the wedding party and guests dancing the night away.
One of the minor details of the day that caught our eyes was the wedding schedule created by the wedding co-coordinator Jenna Humphrey. We wrote an article about it on an earlier wedding videography blog post which you can read here.
Here is the wedding highlight video that we made for Jacqueline and Shane’s wedding that took place in Hamilton.
