Hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Ours was tons of fun and well spent with our kids but now we’re back to work and ready to share another beautiful love story we documented not too long ago.

Jeneva and Charles traveled all the way from Calgary, Alberta to tie the knot at the Royal Laurentien in Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré. The fall colors of the Laurentians provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding ceremony. Here’s a short excerpt of their day.

From the moment we met Amrit and Paul we knew we would have a blast documenting their wedding. These two have a fantastic story, and it was an absolute joy to be part of their two-day celebration. We’re also big fans of Indian cuisine, but this is completely irrelevant. Here’s an express edit we put together to give you a little insight into the love story and journey of Amrit and Hanspaul.

This past weekend we had the great pleasure to travel to BC to document our very 1st Vancouver wedding. Surrounded by their family and close friends Michelle and Joseph tied the knot at Joseph’s parents’ residence. About 1200 guests from all 4 corners of the world attended their formal reception, which culminated with a spectacular fireworks show that lit up Vancouver’s city harbor for more than 8 minutes. Mad props go to David Schuurman for for tagging along and shooting with us for the day. A complete writeup of the event including a longer feature film should follow soon. Until then, here is the Same Day Edit Film we premiered during Michelle and Joseph’s reception.

We had backpacked to Costa Rica on our first trip together and it was one of our favourite and most memorable trips, said Sabrina when asked how Barry proposed to her. We truly fell in love with this small town called Montezuma and couldn’t stop talking about it. It was a place we always said we’d go back to and joked that we wanted to retire there. So during last winter break Barry and his family convinced me to go back on a family trip to Costa Rica. As you already know (me that is), Barry and I have a long love for traveling and also always talked about going on the Amazing Race. So once we arrived at the village in the middle of the jungle, the owners of the village came to greet us with an Amazing Race theme greeting. Barry then immediately dropped to one knee and proposed. It was magical! And so it was their wedding day.

Sabrina and Barry met 1st day of Law school. We became very good friends and I helped Barry a lot out with school, says Sabrina. After the first semester he kept on saying how he owed me for helping him so much and wanted to take me out for drinks as a thank you. After turning Barry down a couple of times, Sabrina finally accepted and the rest is history!

I love how selfless and caring Sabrina is, she is the most genuine, warm-hearted, and thoughtful person I have ever met. I also love how much she appreciates every experience in her life and she soaks up every moment as if it were her last, says Barry. I honestly think exactly the same about Barry. What’s so amazing about him is that he cares so deeply for everyone around him. He goes above and beyond for people and really cares. And I honestly am so lucky because I know that he loves me so deeply, adds Sabrina. And here’s their wedding film.

Estelle is a fantastic dancer! Chris has an incredible memory.. he is able to carry on an in-depth discussion about any topic you can think of. They are both physicians – Estelle is an ENT surgeon while Chris is Neurosurgeon. They first met at work.

Meeting Estelle was one of the greatest blessings of my life and our love continues to grow each and every day, says Chris. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to get to know him and have him as my lifetime partner and companion. I sincerely look forward to our future together filled with joy, trust and most importantly love, says Estelle.

Things that Chris has learned about Estelle:

1. She can communicate in multiple languages but I still can’t quite understand her directions on how to find something around the house 2. Estelle is a great caregiver and always goes out of her way to make sure that everyone else is happy and having a good time. She has a great maternal instinct and will make an excellent mother. 3. She is always willing to learn and improve herself and that inspires me to be a better and more open-minded person. She has helped me to experience new ideas, food, activities that I have greatly enjoyed. 4. She is the kindest person I have ever met and even goes out of her way to help out the homeless; once she brought a homeless man into 7-11 and bought him food since he was begging outside. 5. Estelle has a great sense of humor and gets many of my jokes, we’re still working on recognition of the deadpan sarcastic joke delivery. 6. She has impeccable fashion sense. From her daily outfits to the fancy clothes she wears when we go out to dinner, nothing ever looks out of place and I always feel underdressed beside her. 7. Estelle is a hard-worker and is always busy trying to convince me to read more, study, get off the couch. I appreciate the motivation and her attempts to find ‘peer reviewed’ articles to convince me to eat this or that healthy food and to try this or that new activity.

Things that Estelle has learnt about Chris over the past 3 years:

1. The very first thing you may notice about him is his piercing blue eyes exuding self-confidence that is stemming from his remarkable intelligence and talent. He can be at times overly confident, and it is challenging (and frustrating) to prove him otherwise as he has an in-depth knowledge of ‘evidence-based’ studies to support his claims. Although I have never admitted to him, I do enjoy that challenge that showcases his resourcefulness and debate skills that put me in awe. 2. He is a truly loyal and trusworthy friend. He is always there to encourage me when in need and never ceases to believe in me even when I fail to do so. He is my biggest cheerleader (after my dad). He always sees the very best in me which inspires me to become a better person each and every day. 3. He is a protector. He instinctively tries to protect me at all times. I feel very much safe and secure knowing that he is always there for me. 4. He is a leader. He has an ability to create and build an effective team. He recognizes the need and talent of each team member. At home, he is undoubtedly our pack leader. 5. He is kindhearted (although he does not like to openly show it). He never hesitates to do the good and right thing no matter the circumstances. 6. He is a firm believer of self-improvement. He is always open to constructive criticism and never gets upset or angry when approached. 7. He has a great sense of humor. He always manages to make me laugh even after a bad day.

Estelle & Chris travelled from Vancouver to Montréal to get married. Their ceremony was held at l’Église St-Viateur-d’Outremont and their reception followed at Sofitel. They are both awesome people and it was an absolute pleasure to be part of their wedding day! Here is their wedding film.
