For us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photo-booth rental group, we know that the old idiom holds true; that “absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Whether its separation through distance in both space and time, a truly exceptional relationship between two people can overcome any such challenge – to go the extra mile, bridge every gap and find unity in a common unshakable and unbreakable bond born from love. Such was the story of Joanne & Edward, for which our videographers and cinematographers had the utmost pleasure in working with for their wedding just this past October 10th, 2015 held at the ever-beautiful Paradise Banquet Hall & Convention Centre in Vaughan, just a stone’s throw away from Toronto. Joanne & Edward, meeting in person all the way on the other side of the continent in Vancouver, had held together a long distance relationship for the longest time, so it’s no surprise that the ever-eager pair were understandably ecstatic that they would finally consummate the bond that’s been building up between the two of them, tying the knot in the most splendid of fashions in a favored venue of our videographers and cinematographers and featuring a same-day-edit made by yours truly for the special occasion which you can preview below. So join us as we recall our time with Joanne & Edward on their auspicious autumn wedding celebration, and learn just how the power of love can overcome all odds, all distances and all obstacles to create something truly beautiful and magical.
“Remember to reinvent yourself, rediscover each other, and fall in love over and over again.” This precise piece of advice is one that we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, would share all throughout the world, to every single bride and groom to be. And we couldn’t be happier that such a perfect message was said so succinctly during our work with such a perfect pair, Marco & Carolina, on their very special wedding day just this past spring on a bright and beautiful Saturday, May 9th 2015 with a ceremony and reception held at quite familiar locations for us, St. Paschal Baylon Catholic Church and the ever luxurious Grand Luxe Event Boutique. Marco & Carolina, a young couple who share professions as chartered accountants, had prepared the perfect set-up for their perfect day, and with our videography, cinematography and photobooth services here at SDE Weddings, the dearly beloved duo certainly ‘accounted’ on us to catch every ideal scene, every sentimental moment, and all that could ever be memorable from their stunningly beautiful wedding day through our videographers’ and cinematographers’ lenses. And even more enterprising than it seemed, Marco & Carolina had also requested for both our premier photobooth for their after-ceremony celebration and our special name-sake service of a same-day-edit to be played as a parting gift to close such a magical day. So join us in recalling the wonderful time our videographers and cinematographers had with Marco & Carolina on their doubly-wonderful wedding day.

A childhood dream coming to fruition is one of the most amazing things to have happen to anyone in their lives. Waiting throughout your life for your dream to come true, only for the moment to finally come, is an unbelievable feeling. That’s why for us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, not only are we aware of how unbelievable such a sentiment could be, but how significant it is to make such precious memories unforgettable. Thus we recall our work with Sara & Mark, on their – as stated – truly unforgettable wedding day, set in the summer season on a sun-soaked July 18th, 2015 with a solemn ceremony held at St. Stainslaus Kostka Polish Catholic Parish in Hamilton, and a stellar celebration afterwards at the gorgeous Winona Vine Estates. A first time venue for our videographers and cinematographers, with the wedding festivities taking place in a gorgeous getaway setting situated at the heart of the countryside, just southeast of Stony Creek.

“I have waited for this day my entire life, the moment I woke up and I knew today was the day I get to marry my best friend” spoken by the bride to be as she read her fiancé’s letter out loud in her hotel room. These are common phrases we hear regularly at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography, and photobooth company and still find ourselves deeply touched every time. This memorable day took place on April 26th, 2015 where Ashraf, a full-time police officer who helps keep our streets safe was marrying the women of his dreams, Sandrine an aspiring wedding planner. We could tell by working with the couple that something magical was in the air.

The ‘gift of giving’, as some would say, is the greatest gift of all. The act of love, of being in love, of loving one another, for one, fits this paradigm perfectly. And to have such a treasured gift be given to you in return is one of the most fulfilling experiences one can have. Such is exactly how we felt here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, about our work with Jonathan & Katrina, who held their wedding earlier this year on March 14th 2015 in a beautiful ceremony at Mississauga’s Merciful Redeemer Parish and an unforgettable reception at Toronto’s ever gorgeous Claireport Place Banquet & Convention Centre. Indeed, with a gift to the couple of our tried-and-true ‘Same-Day-Edit‘ and highlight reel specially prepared by our videographers and cinematographers for their special day, the elated newlyweds Jonathan & Katrina couldn’t help but share several kind words about our namesake service below! Scroll further to learn more about Jonathan & Katrina, their wonderful once-in-a-lifetime wedding day, and a sneak-peek at what such a red-letter day entailed in our videographers and cinematographers’ acclaimed ‘Same-Day-Edit’ highlight reel below.
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.

Ah, Valentine’s day. What more can be said about this quintessential day of romance and love that hasn’t been etched onto millions of Hallmark love letters and ubiquitous boxed chocolates? Well, one thing however – and that’s our very first Valentine’s Day wedding! A truly humbling experience for us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group. The daringly amorous couple who chose the day devoted to all things to do with love and romance for their wedding was Rob & Holly, an Italian couple of six-years from Hamilton who held this feast of St. Valentines appropriately enough at Christ’s Church Cathedral, with a resplendent reception at the lovely Sheraton Hamilton Hotel. Suffice to say, with a wedding film, our namesake same-day-edit highlight reel made for their reception, and our renowned photobooth service being a guaranteed hit with the guests, our wedding videographers and cinematographers had more than a handful for themselves this Valentine’s Day in working with Rob & Holly. Scroll further to learn more about this wonderful couple and their wedding day which doubled-down in Valentine’s Day-inspired romance.
We here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography group, believe in the old proverb of ‘beauty in simplicity’. Sometimes, simply cutting through the ornate and ostentatious reveals an austere beauty that is often overlooked, whether through a videographer’s lenses or in the memory of a mind’s eye. A couples’ first smile shared after the sharing of vows, the telling gestures of a nervous groom as he fixes on his wedding day wardrobe, the slow procession down the aisle and the obstinate anticipation for what awaits ahead. All these simple yet profound scenes were part and parcel during our work with Maria & Alessandro on the auspicious occasion of their wedding day just this past October 18th, 2014 at Mississauga’s St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, with a ‘grand’ reception aptly set in the Embassy Grand Convention Centre in Brampton. Needless to say, Maria & Alessandro’s wedding day ceremony and celebration stood out for our videographers and cinematographers as an opportune event in showcasing their ability to create and capture the lasting beauty of a wedding day, in all of its perfect details, through full-day footage filming and in our signature Same-Day-Edit service for screening at the couples’ reception. Have a glance at the highlight reel our videographers and cinematographers prepared for Maria & Alessandro, which you can find below, and read more about our crew’s wonderful experience in filming Maria & Alessandro’s unforgettable wedding day.
