When Maureen first approached us with the idea of surprising her fiance with our videography services, we were ALL IN before she even began explaining the reasons why! We’ve never done something like this before, and we were absolutely stoked to try something new! We had no idea what to expect or how it would all turn out, but that was part of all the fun…
So Maureen reached out to us prior to the email about the surprise and must’ve went over the packages with Andrew. They decided that video unfortunately wouldn’t be in the budget for their wedding. Maureen however, knew how incredibly important it was to Andrew to capture their big day and decided that this would be the perfect gift for him. So sneakily, she contacted us again and started the ball rolling from there! To give you a little insight into how important it was to Andrew to have footage of his wedding, we found out on the day that his plan was to use a bunch of GoPros (and apparently they weren’t working on the day, and Andrew was having a super stressful morning because of it! We felt like superheros coming in to save the day!).
We won’t go into more details about the surprise – you can watch the video for that! Let’s just say the reaction was priceless 🙂
Speaking of ‘firsts’ for us, this couple also brought us on our very first adventure to the LCBO on a wedding day! It was great as it made for a great impromptu videoshoot that showed off their fun personalities and gave us a preview of their party animal ways! Let’s just say they couldn’t wait for their open bar that night 🙂
Just like the couple, every one of their guests were having a blast all night and letting it all hang loose on the dance floor! It was so amazing to see everyone just having a good time, and that’s in huge part to their DJ, Sanga Genesis. He was the DJ at our wedding and we have since been recommending him to anyone in need of one, because he’s fantastic! He just has this major talent of keeping the party going on and on and on! He also spun for another lucky couple – Tom + Christine.
So if you’ve watched the video already, you can see that Maureen and Andrew are absolutely made for each other! The way they spoke about each other and their love, truly came from the most genuine of places – right from the heart! This love extends from both their families as well. We couldn’t help but get emotional when Andrew’s dad was talking about Maureen. Watching him get choked up just at the mention of what Maureen meant to his family, really touched our heartstrings. Watching two different cultures come together also had the same effect on us – maybe because we can relate! Another one of our couples comes to mind, Trevor + Richa – they also showed us the true meaning of celebrating each other’s cultures and traditions.
There is so much to say about the wedding and this couple, but we will let the video do the talking!
Thank you Maureen for trusting in us to capture this day for you and Andrew! You are the loveliest person and we are so grateful that you introduced us to Andrew and your amazing family and friends! We got to see firsthand what a room filled with love looks like – it was bursting!
Andrew, Maureen got you good – it’s your turn next to surprise the wife!
Until the next post,
