This 3-day wedding event was all kinds of EPIC-ness – I don’t think I could describe it any better really! This was our first time filming a wedding of this size (1100 guests to be exact!), and boy was it an incredible sight to see. You could literally feel the energy, the electricity, and all the love in the room! The couple certainly put on a show for all of their family and friends that reception night and ended it all off with one of the best dance parties we’ve ever seen! They basically capped off an amazing 3 days filled with love, laughter, tradition and celebration.
VENUE: There aren’t many venues that hold over one thousand guests, but Paramount Conference and Event Venue in Vaughan is one of them! The venue was large but surprisingly intimate at the same time! Elegant, modern, and a perfect backdrop for most decor designs. They also did an amazing job of managing and serving a delicious buffet to a lot of hungry guests. The venue is part of byPeterandPauls hospitality and event group, which have an amazing reputation in the industry! They certainly know how to handle large numbers, so if you’re looking for a a venue with experience, this is the place for you!
PHOTOGRAPHER: Zaheer Molu from Z Molu Photography is a brilliant photographer! Love every picture I see him post on Facebook – he just has an eye for those details that people just miss! It’s difficult sometimes to produce something completely different in wedding photography, and I really think he does that. He’s able to step outside the box and see something unique. Not only is he a great photographer, he was a lovely person to work with. He is cool and calm while doing his job, but also likes to have fun with his couples and the guests! We’re looking forward to seeing what photos he comes up with next!
WEDDING COORDINATOR: We had the pleasure of working with the team at Demaska Events. They were super organized and communicated with us before, during, and after the event! They were always making sure that we had everything we needed, and made sure we were aware of the schedule. I’m sure managing a large event is super stressful, but everyone on the team looked calm and cool, and based on what we saw, the event went on without a hitch! Or as great wedding coordinators do, the ‘hitches’ are smoothed over without anyone noticing!
MUSIC: We have been waiting for the right event to come along to use this incredible song, Surrender to Hope by Immediate Music. Initially we were saving the song for our next big holiday montage, but couldn’t resist using it when we went through the footage for this wedding. This song calls for grand and epic events, and that is certainly what unfolded over the 3 days at Taran and Preet’s wedding. This song will go down in my history anyways, as one of the best instrumentals ever – gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it!
A NOTE FROM HENRY: I normally don’t write in the blog, but I wanted to share a short story that I feel sums up the groom pretty well. On the first day of shooting, I was due to finish at 10pm, however the food wasn’t being served until 10:30. Taran insisted that I have some food even after I said there was no need. He took it upon himself to leave the party and his guests to take me into the kitchen and ask the boss if it was possible to hook me up with some food before I left. With the snap of the boss man’s fingers, my Indian food craving was fulfilled. This is just one anecdote of how the couple went above and beyond to make us feel as comfortable as possible at all times.
Thank you both again for being such a great couple to work with! We want to wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
Until the next post,
