Our wedding season looked a little different in 2020 with Covid changing a lot of our couples’ plans. For the weddings that we did get to film, they were beautifully intimate and extremely personal. So far, the whole micro-wedding/low guest count thing may have worked out to be a blessing in disguise for many saying their ‘I Do’s’ . Every wedding we’ve filmed this past year has been a major success in terms of how happy everyone ended up being upon reflection of their big day. We wonder how this will change wedding planning in the future!
This was our first time filming a wedding at Two Sisters Winery and it was absolutely stunning! The long road leading up to the venue flanked with greenery on either side is the first thing that caught our eye while arriving at the venue. We knew we had to incorporate it into the photoshoot session somehow and also get the drone involved. Just like most of our vineyard weddings (for example, Melissa and John), we were spoiled with choice when it came to the beauty surrounding the venue. We certainly love a good Niagara wedding!
So, amazing wedding venue – check, but what about the couple? Well these two lovebirds were a joy to film and pretty easy on the eyes too 🙂 That outer beauty however, was certainly matched by their inner beauty! Isabelle + Thomas were so genuine from the first moment I met them. It was just very easy to be real around them. On the day of their wedding, both of their families were so welcoming too. It was a really wonderful day and the thought of Covid just seemed to disappear. Another example of a small wedding we filmed during Covid, was Nicole and Chris’ backyard nuptials. We could really get used to these small intimate weddings.
I know we say this a lot when we talk about the weddings we film, but the speeches were honestly just amazing on Isabelle and Thomas’ big day! It was so hard to choose what to use as it was inevitable that bits of gold would be left on the cutting room floor. You could just tell that both of their families were so incredibly close and connected, which meant it was important for us to highlight every relationship. We had an, ‘I’m not crying, you’re crying’ moment in particular, when Isabelle’s 8 year old brother stood up and did his speech. So many sweet memories captured!
Thanks again guys for choosing us to tell your story during this crazy time! You could literally turn all the twists and turns of the wedding planning process into a musical (we are sure you will try lol!). May the joy of music continue to fill your household in this next chapter of yours together!
Until the next post,
