A simple story of two high-school sweethearts in love is one that’s guaranteed to pull the heartstrings. That’s why for us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, were all too ecstatic when we met with Daniel & Iulia, a pair of high-school love-birds and best friends that have kept their love for each other alive and strong throughout the years, culminating in an unforgettable wedding day just last August 23rd, 2014 with a ceremony at Annunciation Catholic Church and a lovely outdoor reception in perfect summer weather at the Kortright Centre for Conservation. We met the couple through our friend, wedding photographer Jason Shum, who had known the two since their formative years in high-school. And although we can’t drill Jason much on just how close the two were over the years, we think the featured photos and videos from our toronto weddings videographers and cinematographers, along with photobooth snapshots and a specially-made same-day-edit highlight reel speak plenty for themselves on just how perfect Daniel & Iulia are as a couple, and just how perfect their wedding day had been.
In and amongst a figurative oasis far removed from the desert of the city, us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography company, were proud to play a part and be witness to the wedding of Ellie and Justin, whose special day drew plentiful edifying parallels to the history and continuity of the Jewish people. In a modern Jewish Wedding renewal ceremony set in the urban oasis of Fantasy Farm Banquet Hall & Event Centre alongside Toronto’s landmark Don River and Don Valley, Ellie and Justin were wed on April 13th 2014, only a day before Passover, the Hebrew ‘Pesach’, a day which remembers the fight and flight of Moses and the Israelites from the hands of the Pharaoh well over three thousand years ago. It is hence a testament to the power and aura of the Jewish peoples’ spirit, burning ever brightly like a solemn candle in torrential winds, that Ellie and Justin’s story is but a kindling fire born from that same spirit which has persisted for these many a millennia. Akin to Judaism in midst of modernity, Ellie and Justin’s ceremony is both a celebration of life and faith for the Jewish people, but also an acknowledgement of the power of life and faith to overcome adversity in the world. A touching message which our videographers and cinematographers had hoped to fully capture in our work throughout the day.
Some would consider a longstanding friendship a requisite for successful married life, and for the case of Lester and Monica, a Filipino couple from Toronto, a friendship lasting ten years is well enough foundation to form a bedrock for two lives united in marriage. The two met in indeed less-amicable terms than now, as mere acquaintances in high school, yet ten years of what starts off as a simple amorphous figment of a friendship would nevertheless evolve through the currents of time to form what would become a shimmering stone in wedding-ring form. The day with which such a long friendship has built itself towards took place on October 12, 2013 in Mississauga’s St. Catherine of Siena Church, amidst the backdrop earth-toned autumn leaves, traditional Catholic regalia and a lively atmosphere that was enough to warm the many hearts despite the season. Much to our delight here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography group, the couple were overjoyed with our namesake service, the “same day edit”, which was played upon request during the evening’s festivities. Fun, friendship and fulfillment were the central themes of this wedding, and what began in the hearts of Lester and Monica ten years ago would indeed fulfill itself on such a day, and us at SDE Weddings were glad to take part in creating and capturing memories that would hence last ten-fold that time.
