For us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photo-booth rental group, it’s always a pleasure to see a truly shining couple brought together by a shared tradition, shared culture, shared interests and – most importantly – a shared smile. That’s why for our videographers and cinematographers, the ecstatic moments of joy reflected in a brilliant smile on the faces of both bride and groom are some of the most special scenes we at SDE Weddings are most proud of capturing. So it’s no surprise that in our work with Cynthia & Mike on their wonderful wedding day just this past August 8th, 2015 at Toronto’s luxurious Shangri-La hotel, our videographers and cinematographers couldn’t help but be drawn in to every special moment of such a splendid day, and the sequence of smiles that led us through the magical day from start to finish. Cynthia & Mike, a perfect match sharing photogenic smiles, were an absolute pleasure for our videographers and cinematographers to work with. And it was quite lucky for us that we would double the laughter and the smiles for Cynthia & Mike’s wedding day as our videographers and cinematographers also had the pleasure and utmost privilege of hosting our very own photo-booth service for the bride and groom and their wedding guests. With a grin from ear to ear, and all the happiness reflected through every frame, Cynthia & Mike’s special day was undoubtedly one of our most favored weddings of the past year alone. So join us as we look back on Cynthia & Mike’s wonderful wedding day, and maybe you’ll see why a sincere smile is truly contagious!
The ‘best day of my life’, for many to categorize, would fall on their wedding day. The moment of consummation between two people is, understandably enough, a paramount memory that often defines an entire lifetime. We here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography company, know the paramount nature of a wedding day all too well, and the equally tumultuous task of capturing every unforgettable moment which a wedding day entails. That’s why we were more than pleased in working with Amy & Ned, a Cantonese couple who were referred to us by their friends William & May, whose wedding we had filmed just this summer. Amy & Ned’s fateful wedding was set on a bright autumn day on November 15th, 2014, with a ceremony at the St. Agnes Kouying Tsao Catholic Church, a visit to Toronto’s famous Steam Whistle Brewery, and a long night of celebration and excitement at Toronto’s Liberty Grand Wedding Entertainment Complex. With a preview of Amy & Ned’s wonderful wedding in the highlight reel below, it can be no surprise if this day would rank among the best of Amy & Ned’s lives together.

“Happy first day of the rest of our lives”, a line that is both lovely and curiously profound, shared by Sam to his beloved Jennifer in a letter addressed on the morning of their wedding day, runs deep into what makes and motivates our work here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s top wedding videography and cinematography company. There’s something deeply endearing in sharing in a couples’ “first day” of their lives, a day that ushers in an entire timeline of future memories that they’ll face and experience hand-in-hand together. Simply being there and witnessing the formation and foundation of a life shared as one is something that is immensely humbling for us as videographers and cinematographers; and for anyone who experiences it, it is truly a moment that’s impossible to take for granted. For Sam and Jennifer, the day on which the first page of their storybook lives sprung serendipitously to life was on a bright and blossoming spring saturday on May 24, 2014. Amidst a bustling crowd of family, friends and well-wishers in attent to witness the flower of Jennifer and Sam’s love to finally unfurl and blossom anew. The couples’ holy vows and priestly blessings took place in Scarborough’s Chinese Baptist Church, with a lovely evening reception in The Venetian Banquet Centre in Vaughan to wrap up the first gripping paragraph of Jennifer and Sam’s story.
The colour red means a lot of things in Chinese culture. Symbolic of the intrinsic energy of fire, the energy which drives our solar system and life itself, the colour red in Chinese culture represents good luck, fortune, general happiness and future prosperity. In a way, this interpretation of the colour red parallels the western idea of red as the colour of love, of romance and passion. That’s why we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography company, were rather red in delight while working with William and May during their wedding day celebration on May 18, 2014. Of which its many facets were lovingly adorned with plentiful shades of our favourite colour, and served as both a ceremony deeply embedded in Chinese tradition and an event emblematic of the youthful vigilance and romanticism behind the emotive power of love itself. The event was held at the ever ritzy Ritz Carlton Hotel on Wellington street in the heart of Downtown Toronto, with a special photo-shoot session nearby at Toronto’s landmark Distillery District.
