“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.
We at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography and video cinematography group, were ecstatic to be a part of Matt and Joanne’s special day together, and were drawn especially to the couples’ exceedingly sincere devotion to one another, both as self-declared ‘best friends’ and star-crossed lovers. “You make me dream while my eyes are open”, were words that stand out to us from Matt’s speech to the crowd of jubilant faces which gathered on the auspicious evening of his wedding day. Sentimental sentences which speak of a lifetime’s love were ever present during the wedding celebration of Matt and Joanna, which took place earlier this month on April 5th, 2014 in the 1871 Berkeley Church on Queen St., an aptly historic scene for an unforgettable union of two souls bound as one. Matt and Joanne met serendipitously in a setting fit for romantic cinema on the dancing floor. Little did he know that this very same stranger would glance at him again many years later, on centre stage in front of friends and family, to declare an undying love and a life made anew. Very seldom does one come across a couple whose vibrant energy and chemistry together is enough to fill a room with smiles from ear to ear, and for our videographers, Matt and Joanne’s wedding day would be be one filled with bountiful smiles, laughter and happiness throughout the evening.
