Again, one of those times where words don’t do justice. Cloee C.Baulne and Wassim celebrate 10 years of friendships, 5 and half years of love, and it is the honour for me to capture their love story exactly for what it is, and my oh my, the look, the smile, and the love they have for each other are so beautiful and contagious. The joy these two shares is absolutely incredible! If you have a few minutes and want to have your heart filled with happiness, let’s watch their wedding film below.

Jesse + Todd // Sweet & Intimate Backyard Wedding
Over a month before the wedding day, Jesse reached out to me to express that the wedding of her and her soulmate will be in their childhood backyard. I knew right then that it will be one of the sweetest and most memorable weddings ever. Due to the pandemic, many of their beloved family and friends could not join them to celebrate their special day, but they planned a very unique way to make it even more special – a drive-by parade with lots of cheering and honking (my ears still hurt from all the honking j/k). It was spectacular. Intimate, loving, and warm are what I can remember about the day. I am honoured to have the pleasure to share those special moments with Jesse, Todd, their parents, grandparents and siblings. Thank you so much for letting me capture your beautiful day. L’amour conquiert tout. Love is not cancelled.

Savannah + Benjamin // Love is not Cancelled
Who would have thought 2020 could be so wild. The novel Coronavirus is affecting all of us in so many aspects of our lives… physically, emotionally, financially and especially love birds ready to tie the knot… along with many other couples who had to cancel or put their celebration plans on hold. Although the Covid-19 might have cancelled almost everything, one thing it cannot cancel is LOVE Savannah and Benjamin chose a more conventional, unique way to celebrate the love they have for each other with a small, intimate ceremony.
Today, I am so happy to share with you the love story of Savannah and Ben. I am still on cloud 9 how beautiful the wedding film turns out. It was a very special moment capturing Savannah and her Dad entered the ceremony with her childhood friend of 22 years – Warrior, the beautiful white horse with blue eyes that have been together with Savannah since she was eight. Not forget to mention, besides being a teacher, Savannah is also a great wedding photographer, which her business was named after Warrior Warrior Prints Photography.
I can’t wait to capture their celebrations with many of their families and friends in the coming year.

When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt through a handheld, a voice heard, or a smile seen. The love, the intimation, the obsession for each other exist in every single frame of Grace Thai and David Thai’s wedding film. We had such an unforgettable time in capturing their wedding and we are excited to share their beautiful and emotional wedding film.

“Love is not about how much you say ‘I love you’, it is about what you do to prove it. May you continue to show your love to each other, each and every day” – Brian Trager, farther of the bride.
Two ordinary people and one true high school sweethearts love story. @melliottjess and Wyatt have been knowing each other since grade 9. They fell in love when they were 16 and have been nearly inseparable ever since. They went through a lot together and understand each other in ways that no one else can. It was so touching being a part of their special day and we are so thankful you two chose us to capture it!

Vi lives in Dallas, Texas, and Hung lives in Ottawa, Canada. On Jul 4th, Victoria Vie and Hung Tran tied the knot at such a gorgeous venue Le Belvedere, on the edge of the charming Wakefield village, surrounding among beloved families and friends from all over the places.
Their wedding is amazing. Their happiness is contagious and it came through in so many ways. Indeed, the tear says it all. Vi and Hung’s emotional letter reading is one of the most beautiful moments that I’ve ever witnessed.
May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy.

“I wish I could stand up here and promise you the world, but the world is not mine to give. What I do promise you is my world and all that it entails. I wish I could promise you smooth sailing but we are certainly going to have ups and downs. But I do promise you I will be by your side, every day.” – by Mat-the Groom.
The love that Cat and Matt have for each other is so contagious that no other word can describe. Cheers to the newlyweds and I am so excited to share this magical experience that an amazing team of vendors created for Cat and Mat at Le Belvedere!
So much love for these two for trusting us with these precious moments!

A “first look” is a lovely newer wedding day tradition when the couple sees each other for the first time before the actual ceremony, and that moment is just as powerful as when they see each other in the aisle. Plus, the couple has more time to together to emote, to cry, to share their thought. Indeed, “first look” is always one of my favourite moments to capture on the wedding day, and I have been asking myself “How do I convince my couple to do the first look?”. Perhaps, the first look moment of Kathryn and Brandon proves it all and that pure beautiful moment is convincing enough.
