The summer season has always had love in the air. With the passing of spring and the symbolic beginning of new life comes the blossoming of many beautiful scenes under the sun. And through many spotless summer skies, our wedding videographers and cinematographers here at SDE Weddings®, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography, and photobooth group, have spent years documenting many couples choosing a perfect summer day to be their wedding day. One such special couple was Peter & Paula, a young couple of Korean and Filipino backgrounds respectively, finding themselves and each other amidst the multicultural mosaic of Canada. The truly special couple held their summer season wedding day on June 8th, 2018 in a brilliant ceremony and celebration held at the Oakview Terrace Reception Centre, a breathtaking countryside wedding venue in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto, and a first foray for our videographers and cinematographers to this rather impressive event space. Having filmed many multicultural weddings over the years, our videographers and cinematographers have always held the belief that true love can bloom regardless of who you are or where you’re from. Indeed, there’s always a beautiful love story to be found, and our videographers and cinematographers would love nothing more than to share such touchingly beautiful love stories with the world. So join us as we recall some of our most treasured memories from our work with Peter & Paula on their summer season multicultural wedding day.
From inter-faith to inter-cultural, life and love intertwined together has the power to transcend all barriers and boundaries. We here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photo booth group, know this message all too well. So in working with Kristin & Tommy in filming their wondrous wedding day set on the bright summer day of July 5th, 2014, we are reminded of love’s lasting power to unite people, and just how paramount our passions can be in bringing people together. In an inter-faith ceremony of both Buddhist and Christian tradition, Kristin & Tommy, a Filipino and Vietnamese couple, were wed in a sentimental setting between their most precious loved ones, and held a lovely gathering at Markham’s Casa Victoria restaurant to celebrate and enjoy one of the most beautiful moments of their lives. We were privileged to spend their wonderful wedding day with them, and more so honoured to provide the full footage of their unforgettable day.

Faranak and Ayaaz, two prospective doctors and avid movie goers, were an absolute delight to work with for us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s top wedding videography and cinematography company. Not only from the way the two were always brimming with positivity and shared an ever abundant love for one another, but through their openness, humour and above all a love of life that we knew that these two were among the brightest couples that we’ve ever set our sights on. Unique in our work with weddings, Faranak and Ayaaz had requested a special engagement video, where the couples’ love of film and interest in videography bonded with our very own. In midst of our studio’s green screen, the couple, along with their closest friends and loved ones, recreated a few of Hollywood’s most iconic scenes in a rather haphazardly humorous way, all with the running gag of Faranak and Ayaaz’s upcoming wedding celebration. Our work with the two would further culminate in a festive wedding weekend on May 30th and June 1st, 2014, at the familiar steps of Toronto’s ever luxurious Liberty Grand.

For Tanya and Nick, two best friends at the prime of their lives, the consummation and culmination of their years of friendship in a perfect wedding day was a journey far from simple status quo. Something we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography company, can well enough relate to. Tanya, a spirited Portuguese brunette; and Nick, whose namesake is short form for the Greek ‘Nikolaos’ meaning ‘victory’ reflects his heritage succinctly, met just short of eight years ago as young university students at a pivotal crossroad in both their lives. The two served as a source of support for one another, through thick and thin, and would soon develop an insurmountable bond that stood steadily through many of life’s tests. Such a bond would endure another hurdle on May 24, 2014, in the form of their final moments as mere friends and their first as husband and wife. In a dual ceremony alternately held at St. John Bosco Church and All Saints Church celebrating both Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox religious tradition respectively, Tanya and Nick faithfully accepted each other’s call to be one another’s soul-mates and partners in the path of life. Tanya and Nick’s fateful first evening as newlyweds would finalize in an all-inclusive luxury reception at Bayview’s aptly named Grand Luxe Event Boutique, and all the many timeless memories of the evening were captured by our videography and cinematography crew in among the most elegant and simply stated weddings we’ve filmed thus far.
