Sometimes when we meet with couples we have so much fun that we forget that this is actually a job. How lucky are we? Chatting with Blake and Emily was like chatting with old friends right from the beginning (as the wives keep saying, the bromance was brewing!). Blake and Emily placed their faith in us from day one and really let it show by how laid back they were about everything on the day. Do you know that these two met when they were kids? And Emily even asked Blake back then, if they were good enough friends to have him invite her to his future wedding? You seriously can’t write this stuff! We knew we had a special story and wedding on our hands and we felt honoured to be the videographers chosen to tell it.
The wedding Ceremony was held at Cranberry Creek Gardens in Delhi. This place seriously has character and old-world charm. The aisle was nothing short of spectacular and probably the longest outdoor one we’ve ever seen! It’s great when you have an aisle like this as it gives the groom and all the guests ample time to take in the beauty of what is happening before them. The emotions grew stronger with each step Emily took towards Blake, and there were a lot of steps 🙂 We don’t have a top 10 list for wedding ceremony locations, but if we did make one, this location would have to be in there. It is unlike any other ceremony space we have shot at! Another great ceremony spot that always comes to mind is the outdoor ceremony space (basically a solarium) found at Whistle Bear Golf club. Check out Danielle and Nate’s wedding video to see what we mean.
The wedding reception was held nearby at Woodside Greens Golf Club. The cocktail hour was held outside where there was plenty of space for the guests to roam around and mingle. We loved that the reception was held under a pavilion, maybe because we did the same thing at Black Creek Pioneer Village for our own wedding! Brought back feelings of a great day and being one with nature!
Before we end this post, we need to mention again how incredible these two individuals are. Emily is a naturopathic doctor who spreads love and joy everywhere she goes, and Blake is a motivational speaker who, not surprsingly too, spreads love and joy where HE goes! These two are made for each other, that’s for sure! Find out more about what each of them do here: Dr. Emily Elliot and Blake Fly
Thank you both again for letting us be a part of such a wonderful day! Hopefully we are invited to your vow renewal in, was it, 75 years?!
