Spring has sprung anew, and with the turning season comes a time of growth and renewal, and turning a new leaf. So amidst the spring season’s renewing sunshine and gorgeous greenery, we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, were particularly excited to play a part in a budding moment in the lives of Annemarie & Andrey, who held their wonderful wedding just this April 25th, 2015 with a solemn ceremony at Etobicoke’s Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Slovenian Catholic Church and a beautiful reception at the Oakville Conference and Banquet Centre. Indeed, a steadfast dedication to one another is a quality that typified Annemarie & Andrey, who – at the time of their wedding – had been together for all of eight years, eight months and two days; a stunningly accurate figure communicated through the couples’ wedding letters. And as so the saying goes, ‘time flies when you’re having fun’. Such a sentiment truly exemplified by Annemarie & Andrey; to quote Andrey’s beautiful words to his bride-to-be, “it feels like yesterday when we met, now we’re getting married.” Truly, it’s no small task to not be moved by such a touching memory caught on film, and for such a unique couple, our videographers and cinematographers had nothing but the utmost pleasure in working with such a dynamic duo. From our specially made ‘Same-Day-Edit’ to an entire day’s worth of special shots and scenes cut and captured by our videographers and cinematographers from sunrise to the very last dance at midnight, every matrimonial memory a complete delight to capture.

Andrey + Annemaire Same Day Edit

“My heart did not know how to sing until I met you”, wrote Andrey in a beautiful love letter for his beloved bride Annemarie, whose tearful reading of such wonderful words begins our story with the couple on the morning of their highly-anticipated wedding day; a bright and spotless day in April which likewise made for perfectly spotless shots from our videographers and cinematographers. An enterprising couple to say the least, Annemarie & Andrey made it known to our videographers and cinematographers how significant some shots were to their wedding day, and had personally outlined and emphasized several scenes for our videographers to focus on. Many of these special scenes are featured in the same-day-edit highlight reel below; from the playfulness between bridesmaids and groomsmen, to the penultimate moment of their wedding vows, all through the lenses of our videographers and cinematographers, turning out perfectly in film through the same-day-edit, we couldn’t be happier!

Update: Below is the wedding highlight video we made for Andrey + Annemaire

One more particular that our videographers and cinematographers had taken from Annemarie & Andrey’s wedding day was just how much ideal weather helped in turning a great shot into a perfect shot. In our highlight video, our editors had made a note in putting an emphasis on the bright sunlight, spotless blue sky and the overall theme of ‘spring in the air’ in both beginning and end as a visual metaphor for new beginnings, of creation and of a new life between Annemarie & Andrey. The bridal party’s wardrobes were fitting as well, with bridesmaids dressed in deep green and groomsmen in green neckties, and an overall motif of green sprinkled throughout the ceremony were all perfect visual cues that our videographers and cinematographers clued into in emphasizing the theme of spring, all on a perfect spring day.

From the earliest morning shots of Annemarie & Andrey’s wedding day preparations, to an unforgettable scene of their exchange of vows, to a plethora of sentimental scenes featured in our highlight reel, we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, could not be prouder of our work with Annemarie & Andrey on their truly wonderful wedding day. One can’t help but feel like the newlyweds were truly blessed, both in their longevity together and in such a perfect spring day for their wedding. All in all, we wish them the very best in their lives together, and hope that their love continues to blossom for many years to come.
