We initially met Rachel and Clive over Skype for the very first time to discuss their wedding day and even without meeting them both in person we could really feel their great energy and love for each other.
Finally, their big day had approached and the mood that day was just magical as the snow gently blanketed Toronto in the crisp November air.
Stepping into the Atlantis, we absolutely knew that Rachel and Clive had the perfect backdrop of the Toronto skyline and waterfront for their wedding ceremony and reception!
With anticipation in the air, they waited for that special moment to see each other for the first time as Bride and Groom with their family as witness. It’s always special capturing a first look, two people in an honest moment, on the verge of becoming something greater together…
Jim Emerson from Enduring Promises presided over the ceremony and we felt compelled to use his powerful words to start this highlight reel. He said “Marriage is one of the most courageous human acts…the promise of two people sharing life together, on all levels…”. We couldn’t agree more, as it was clear to see the courage Rachel & Clive had reading their heartfelt written vows to each other. They both did a wonderful job!
Relationships often start with a ‘spark’ so it was quite fitting to cap the first day of the rest of their lives together with a firework waterfall cascading outside the glass wall of the Atlantis’ Grand Metropolitan ballroom during their first dance as Husband and Wife! It was left as a surprise for those in attendance and it was truly an epic way to open the dance floor for their family and friends.
Rachel and Clive wanted their guests to have an awesome time, so they went for one of our additional services, which was the Video/Testimonial booth. Easily one of our most popular extra services, the guests took full advantage to leave their warmest wishes to both the bride and groom while everyone danced the night away to DJ/Host Ben from Feedback Promotions while the lights of the city twinkled in the background.
What an EPIC night to end an amazing wedding season this year, the perfect setting for the perfect day!
We wish Rachel and Clive all the happiness, joy and love in their future together =)

Meeting Jessica and Domenic was such a delight at their initial consultation!
With everyone in high spirits that morning (even Doug the dog!), the stage was set for a beautiful autumn day to be married!
Their wedding ceremony took place at St. Paul the Apostle Church in front of family and friends sharing all their love and support for the couple. As always, we believe that capturing the groom’s first reaction to the bride is one of the best moments of the day! Domenic was very emotional as Jessica walked down the aisle with her mother…she looked absolutely gorgeous from head to toe!
After the vows were exchanged, we headed off to High Park for photos with family and friends along with a quick stop in the fashion district of downtown Toronto. Jessica and Domenic really wanted some vibrant colours and creative imagery as a backdrop to their photos + video, so dropping by Graffiti Alley would be the best place to be (located just south of Queen Street West near Bathurst Street)!
As the sun was slowly setting, we made our way to the beautifully staged reception at the Red Rose Convention Centre in Mississauga. With the ambience set for the first dance, it looked like Jessica and Domenic were dancing on a cloud (literally!). As the fog machine filled the floor, all you could focus on was the happy couple and all they could focus on was each other!
We wish Jessica and Domenic all the best in a happy and loving marriage together =)
One of the most interesting moments for us on a wedding shoot is when the bride and groom see each other for the very first time on their big day. It was truly evident that Alisa & Tyler’s nerves were washed away, once they locked eyes as Alisa walked down the aisle and Tyler standing at the altar, eagerly wanting to hold onto Alisa’s hands.
After the happy couple said “I DO!” in front of the congregation at Westdale United Church, they were off to their reception at the stunning Liuna Station, which was a 1930’s train station located in the heart of downtown Hamilton, Ontario.
As Alisa and Tyler said in the video, “when children find true love, parents find true joy”, and by the happiness, joy and love radiating from both sets of parents, we couldn’t agree more =)
We wish Alisa & Tyler all the very best!
One of the most interesting moments during the bride and groom prep is when the couple exchange some last words before walking down the aisle.
It was touching to see Antoniette become emotional while reading her card from Daniel, especially when he mentioned how she made him laugh…and how it reminded him of their first date at the movies. It’s such an amazing thing to capture the bride and groom’s reaction on video, truly priceless!
With emotions running high, they expressed their commitment and exchanged their vows. You really can’t help but see that they meant every word of them and feel the genuine love they have for each other.
After their wedding ceremony, we captured the newlyweds throughout the beautiful Kleinburg area, with lots of quaint stores, classic cars, beautiful weather and a couple smiling from ear-to-ear you couldn’t ask for better conditions to shoot in! It also just happened to be the same day as the Bindertwine Festival, so there was quite an audience for Daniel and Antoniette…but who can blame people for stopping, they looked fantastic!
The reception was staged beautifully at the Royalton in Woodbridge, Ontario, the perfect background to see friends and family witness the happy couple dance together as husband and wife for the very first time.
We wish Antoniette & Daniel all the best on their adventures in life, it was a pleasure to document their day!
Happiness, Joy & Love,
B & L
Sunita moved to Toronto from the mid-west and found her one and only, Amit! You could really see and feel their connection for each other…a match made in heaven =)
Their wedding reception was held at the Palais Royale in Toronto. Their guests had an awesome time in our video / photo booth! We had fun props for all ages to wear and some had such a good time that they have forgotten to take them off on their way back to the dance floor! Their loved ones had a lot to say about the bride and groom…the testimonials were very funny, quirky and loving…everything from great words of advice to singing songs dedicated to the happy couple!
We wish Sunita & Amit happiness, joy & love in their marriage together!
