From the all the miniscule details in the décor, all of seventeen custom-made chandeliers resembling an homage to the Babylonian hanging gardens , and an entire team of thirty wedding décor specialists taking about twenty whole hours to set up, it’s no surprise that Michelle and Paul’s fantastically gallant wedding celebration was famously featured on Wedluxe, a high-end wedding planner’s magazine. For us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography group, stepping into Michelle and Paul’s wedding reception on October 5th, 2013 at the luxurious Deercreek Golf & Banquet in Ajax was enough to make us stand still in awe, and true to our name, fashion a same-day-edit for the couple from among the most beautiful wedding day shots we’ve ever taken. Nonetheless, behind the whole pageantry of it all was the unyielding motivation of the love of a couple who met as high-school crushes ten years ago, and whose time, hard work and dedication to each other brought them to such magnificent of heights.
A resounding cheer of ‘Mazel Tov!’ was heard from the crowd of congratulating onlookers as Alex, the groom, crushed a glass on his heel, a traditional Jewish wedding custom to close a wedding ceremony. Michelle and Alex, a young couple from Toronto, held their wedding day on October 13, 2013 in a specially reserved reception at Toronto’s famous Park Hyatt Hotel in the luxurious downtown district of Yorkville. We at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography group, were honored to be chosen by Michelle and Alex to handle all the media matters for their wedding day. In particular, a same-day edit played during the wedding reception to the applause of the crowd left us very pleased in helping to capture the joyful and festive atmosphere of the entire wedding day celebration.
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.
Here is the wedding highlight video that we made for Jacqueline and Shane’s wedding that took place in Hamilton.
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.
“They are not said to be husband and wife who merely sit together. Rather they alone are called husband and wife who have one soul in two bodies.” An ancient Sikh proverb resonating through the ages, is befitting enough for the wedding of Jagdeep and Amrit, a Sikh couple whose single soul-searching journeys found themselves with each a soulmate, a wonderful wedding ceremony and a life made complete, in full Sikh tradition. Ancient wisdom and modern technology working in twain would be the catalysts to Jagdeep and Amrit’s fateful first meet, from an online message to a lifetime marriage. The couple had first met through a popular Indian website, and instantly hit it off, proving that any avenue, whether new or old, will lead to true love, even where you least expect it. A shared tradition, though, would be the main vehicle to bring the two down the long path of life together. The Sikh wedding ceremony was held at Ontario Khalsa Darbar, Mississauga’s most notable Sikh Gurdwara (temple) and one of the largest in Canada, and a lively reception in the spacious Woodbine Banquet & Convention Hall afterward, all on October 12, 2013. We at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography group, are ever and always proud to fulfill a part in capturing these once in a lifetime memories in our media, and are glad to partake in many wedding customs from around the world.
Sometimes life is simply better when you’re well connected, and with a wedding of over thirteen hundred celebrants, Vipushitha and Anchyan certainly know the benefits of a bit of fame. With a two-day wedding event, a ceremony set in the luxurious Le Parc banquet hall and the day-after reception in the massive Toscana banquet hall set in Thornhill, just outside of Toronto, the beloved couple surely knew how to set themselves apart with their celebration. Vipushitha and Anchyan, a Sri Lankan couple from Toronto who’ve only known each other for two years, did not let such a short period of time hinder them from finding the best out of one another, learning the ins and outs of their partner and discovering a true love that would lead to a lifelong commitment. We at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography group, are ever receptive to the cornucopia of cultural traditions that Toronto’s diversity brings us, and are no doubt especially receptive to the plenty colorful and extravagant ceremonies of South Asian weddings. Vipushitha and Anchyan’s wedding was indeed a sight to behold, and from our diligent work in both capturing and editing the plentiful wedding video footage of the two-day long festivities, we are quite delighted in bringing such sights, sounds and storytelling to fruition.
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.
Last Saturday, October 19, 2013, we took a break from filming weddings in Toronto and attended Evyana’s baby shower in the heart of downtown Toronto. The event took place at 2nd Floor Events located on 461 King Street West. It was a very family oriented event and our client has even invited a magician for all of the kids at the party. With over 60 guests for this special celebration, we were very honored to provide our photobooth service to all the guests who attended the event. As requested by our client, we made two prints of each photo, one for the guest and one for the client’s guest signing book. Here are some photos that our photo booth took from the event.
