Simple, elegant, austere and perfect. These few words and their grander meanings sum up in entirety the wedding day of Janice and Owen, a young couple whose wedding we filmed this past month on May 10, 2014, with ceremony at St. Gabriel Catholic Parish and a Victorian reception at Casa Imperial. Janice, a native of Toronto, had met Owen, a student of Mathematics, whilst studying English Literature in the UK. The two, clearly drawn to each other through their intellectual pursuits, found themselves as complements of one another, and discovering together an unbounded emotion whose depth is greater than the uncountably infinite, and whose breadth is wider than any Shakespearean exposition could ever encapsulate. We here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography group, are ever enamoured by the profundity of how something as simple as the ‘union of two’ rooted in marriage can transcend the transcendental, rationalize the irrational, and fill in the disparate gaps of a continuum incomplete. Such was our sentiment of Janice and Owen’s minimalist approach to their wedding day itinerary, of which serves but one half of two ceremonies, the other being held in England wherein our work for them would be played back for Owen’s family and friends. In that sense, it’s no stretch of a metaphor to say that for the young couple and their wedding wishes, that ‘all the world’s a stage’ for the ceremony whose significance completes Janice and Owen’s lives as one.
