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.

“Isn’t love grand?” A lovingly fitting tagline for Michael & Linda, a young Vietnamese couple, whose wedding day we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, helped commemorate just last August 3rd, 2014 at among Toronto’s most beautiful and historic event venue “The Eglinton Grand”, our first time working at this lovely location in fact. The tagline was what featured Michael & Linda at their very own exclusive event provided for them by the once-previous historic Toronto theatre. Such a line would truly exemplify how ‘grand’ an event this was for Michael & Linda, and what a grand opportunity it was for us, our wedding videographers and cinematographers, to truly be a part of and help create.

For Mylai and Si, a young Vietnamese couple hailing from Toronto, having their wedding at this crossroad of life was a simple step forwards for the two of them. With the both having burgeoning careers in healthcare, alongside Si pursuing his masters degree, there was no better time than now to consolidate their relationship and prepare for the future together. That’s why for us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and cinematography company, believe that both love and passion can manifest itself fully in both career and craft, a view that’s in no small part echoed by Mylai and Si in their own lives as young professionals. The beloved couples’ special day took place on May 18th, 2014 at the stunningly gallant Sheraton Hotel Hamilton, just a stone’s throw away from Toronto, and as for the reception, featured the Victorian Room at Chateau Le Jardin Event Venue in Woodbridge. Scroll further to read more about Mylai and Si’s elegant wedding and our own experience in helping the couple film every special moment of their day.
Our videographers’ work with the couple begins with the ever essential makeup and prep process for Mylai and her bridesmaids, all taking place in Sheraton Hotel Hamilton at the literal crack of dawn. Mylai’s choice of wardrobe for the day would fluctuate between a slimming and stately one-piece wedding gown and a crimson red Ao Dai, a traditional Vietnamese silk tunic. Likewise for Si, a very formal suit would stand in contrast to the traditional garb of the Ao Gam brocade tunic. In many ways, this choice is reflective of Mylai and Si, both cognizant of their heritage, yet well adapted to their lives in a vibrant and multicultural Canada.To accent further the traditional theme pervasive during the morning’s preparations, Mylai and Si would have a tea ceremony with friends and family at Si’s house, as an interlude between the morning and the rest of the day’s events.
Summer, the perennial season of love and youthfulness, makes a strikingly perfect setting for a wonderful wedding celebration. Such were our sentiments here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, just this past July 26th, 2014 while filming for the long-awaited wedding day of Tina & David, a young couple from Brampton who held their menagerie of marital memories at the esteemed Riviera Parque Convention Centre in Vaughan. Tina & David’s story recanted through second-hand whispers shows a particularly saccharine tale; of school-girl crushes and classroom curiosity. Beginning in the packed lecture halls of Tina & David’s shared classes yet finding its fateful way to a tender scene in front of a full crowd of family and friends, and the professing of a shared love that’s brought the two together ever since. For our videographers and cinematographers, such a storybook tale fits together perfectly with the scenes we had captured during Tina & David’s wedding day. To top it all off, a specially-made photobooth care of yours truly was provided for the couple and their many varied guests, to, of course, predictably playful results.

A wedding is a celebration to cement the love of two in an union fit for a lifetime, and we at SDE Weddings know how unbelievably special such a day is for everyone involved. This sentiment rang especially true for the wedding of Thuy and Long Nguyen, a Vietnamese wedding couple who’ve been together and known each other for an especially long time. A sentimental and rather ordinary meeting was the start of the story for the two, when they simply met through mutual acquaintances at a trip to Canada’s Wonderland, just north of Toronto, the premier amusement park of Canada. The two hit it off immediately, and in retrospect, it was no ‘wonder’ at all how these two made it together this far.
The wedding proper was held in Hamilton on September 28, 2013, and the wedding reception afterwards in Brampton, just southwest of Toronto. A particularly long trek for those familiar with Southern Ontario’s geography, but such trivialities as travel were not in the minds of our Toronto wedding cinematographers and videographers when they accompanied the couple and their families all throughout the day. Such a special touch is a testament to our dedication to make the wedding day indeed the most memorable day in one’s life, and we hope that Thuy and Long share the same feeling.
