1970s LOVE

1970s LOVE from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

Sometimes in our down time we like to collaborate with other wedding professionals who are friends of ours and make something totally different from what we normally do. This concept is a 1970s rock and roll inspired wedding shoot that we put together before wedding season began this past year. It was so much fun to work with all of the talented ladies who made this magical shoot happen.

Our inspiration for the cinematography and editing was music videos and we used a lot of jump cuts and quick editing – something we don’t normally do with our wedding film edits – but I think it would look great in a wedding film for any of you out there who want a more edgy take on your wedding day.

Thanks to everyone who worked on this shoot

YIYI + CHENXI

This was a winter wonderland wedding dream come true! When a bride plans a wedding in January she hopes for snow, and this lucky bride got lots of it. Yiyi and Chenxi tied the knot at the beautiful McClean House at The Estates of Sunnybrook with a backdrop of large snowflakes cascading from the window beside them. This wedding was breath taking, not only because of the setting but because of the unique and special moments we were able to capture for this bride and groom. Their first look was one of our favourites of all time- I just had to open their wedding film with it as the first scene!
Congratulations Yiyi + Chenxi!
Enjoy!

DHARSH + IAN May 10, 2014 SAME DAY EDIT!

What a pleasure it was to shoot this lovely couple’s wedding day! Both such vibrant people it’s easy to see how they found each other. This late-afternoon wedding held at 99 Sudbury in Toronto, Ontario was an intimate affair with close family and friends. Ian runs a successful videography company and so we are very honoured that he chose us to capture their big day. This is a sneak peek of Ian and Dharsh’s special wedding day.

Enjoy their Same Day Edit!

Lovestruck Expo Faux Wedding at The Berkeley Church

Living in a city with so many talented wedding professionals it’s sometimes fun to join forces and create something beautiful to promote each other’s work. Bright Sky Weddings had the pleasure of being the featured wedding videography company at this year’s Lovestruck Faux Wedding Expo.

The concept was designed by Darling and Daisy, a Toronto based styling team and is a new take on Wedding Shows. Brides from all over the city were invited to be guests at The Berkeley Church and watch our lovely bride and groom get hitched and to then take part in a fun reception. After that, all the brides were able to visit booths by vendors who took part in creating this special wedding. It was an interactive way for brides to get ideas for their weddings and talk to vendors about creating something special for their very own wedding days.

It was an interesting change of pace to shoot this event! Here is the “faux” wedding of our beautiful bride and groom.

Enjoy!

Lorraine + Dexter SAME DAY EDIT!!

Lorraine + Dexter // August 2, 2014 Same Day Edit! from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

We met these love birds only a week ago and it’s so hard to believe because I feel like I’ve known them for a while now after shooting their gorgeous wedding today in Toronto. Lorraine and Dexter have been together for over a decade and live out west in Vancouver. They decided they would come to where Lorraine is from in Ontario and get married! I’m so happy they chose us to film their wedding and also to create a same day edit for them which was screened at the reception at the magnificent Casa Loma – Toronto’s very own castle!

Enjoy this little sneak peak at their fairytale day.

Raffaella + Greg // May 24, 2014

Raffaella + Gregg // May 24, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

Raffaella is a New Yorker and Gregg is from Toronto. When these two met no distance could keep them apart and eventually Raffy made her home in Toronto to be with Gregg. Having family travel in from NY, there was no shortage of guests from her side of the family. This was a BIG party mixing Italian New Yorkers and Gregg’s Scottish side. Bag pipes, gorgeous city views, a swanky hotel roof top and true love are some must see moments from this wedding film.

Congratulations Raffy + Gregg!

BABITHA + ROSHAN // NEXT DAY EDIT!

Roshan + Babitha // Next Day Edit Sept 5, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

So much eye candy in this wedding film! We had the honour to shoot a two day wedding this past weekend and the Hindu Ceremony on the first day was screened at the reception the following day! The traditional rituals and ceremonies of this wedding are breath taking and a lovely change of pace for us. The bride is truly stunning and looks like a Bollywood star- loved every minute of shooting this wedding.

This is part one of Roshan and Babitha’s two day extravaganza- stay tuned for the trailer for day two!

Enjoy!

MELODY + JORDAN

Melody + Jordan // May 31, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

I absolutely love their love story! These two met while working at the zoo in Peterborough Ontario. Naturally this is where we went for the newlyweds’ photos and captured some amazing moments. This couple was great to work with and had some very cute hand crafted vows that made the whole crowd laugh and cry. Enjoy this sneak peak of Melody and Jordan’s wedding day!

The beautiful grounds of The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg Ontario provided a lovely and romantic setting for Tina and John to say their vows. It was the perfect intimate garden style wedding! What a cute pair they are and what an amazing day filled with family and friends.

Enjoy this sneak peek.

SYDNEY + RYAN


Sydney + Ryan June 21, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

First of all I have to say that this wedding was GORGEOUS in every way. I can’t imagine a more serene and romantic destination to get married than Muskoka. The day starts off at Sydney’s water-side cottage while the boys get ready at Cleavland’s House a few minutes away. Both groups are relaxed and happy. Then Ryan came to Sydney’s for the “first look” with his bride-to-be and it was one of the cutest things I have ever seen. A little boat came to pick up Sydney and her bridesmaids to take them to the church but not before some great photo ops. The ceremony was short and sweet and just perfect. Guests then board a boat and that takes them to Muskoka Lakes Country Club to enjoy the night celebrating Sydney and Ryan’s marriage.

This sneak peek is full of so much eye candy. Enjoy!

MIKE + BIANCA


Bianca + Mike June 7, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

We are so thrilled with how this wedding film turned out – I mean it’s pretty hard for Mike and Bianca to look anything but cute and in love and so they pretty much had it in the bag from the start. We just came and captured all the precious moments and silly moments too. This wedding party was a lot of fun and we definitely put in put in some hilarious moments caught on camera in this highlight film. It was an absolute pleasure being able to spend your wedding day with you Bianca and Mike, so thank you for choosing us!

Also special shout out goes to Afterglow Images for being our favourite photographers to work with and thanks for the image we used in the poster!

Enjoy this sneak peek!

ANDREA + SHANE


Andrea and Shane were married on a beautiful August day at Belcroft Estates in Gilford Ontario. All of us at Bright Sky absolutely love shooting at this venue – it never disappoints us with its dreamy setting! To start the day off the girls had their own cottage and the guys got ready in the man cave filled with vintage signs, pin ball machines and a classic red car! Their ceremony was under a sweet little gazebo where family and friends gathered to see them exchange their vows and the reception was in a beautiful rustic barn. It was such a great day and we are so happy you picked us to film it!

Congrats Andrea and Shane!
Enjoy the sneak peek.

Jayme+Justin


Jayme +Justin June 20, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

Creating Jayme and Justin’s wedding film was very special to me because Justin is my mom and dad’s best friends’ son. All the films I shoot and edit are each their own work of art but with this one I did not want to disappoint!

The day was absolutely perfect and gorgeous in Niagara on the Lake where Justin and Jayme tied the knot. Jayme and the ladies had stayed the previous night at a lovely bed and breakfast in town, while the guys got ready at The Queen’s Landing. Jayme’s dad came to pick her up to take her to the church in my dad’s Rolls Royce (my Dad played chauffeur of course- something he was really excited about) and they took a cute scenic drive through the town to make sure all the guests were seated before Jayme arrived.

The ceremony was beautiful and you could tell how excited they were to finally be husband and wife! There was a get away car parked out front waiting for them and once they tied the knot and sealed the deal they drove off in a vintage Mercedes that had been decorated – complete with a statue of an old man in the back seat lol.

The reception was a blast and it was very nice to hear all the kind words everyone had to say about the happy couple. I have incorporated a few of these words into this highlight video.

Enjoy a peek into Justin and Jayme’s wedding day in Niagara on the Lake!

JEN+MIKE

Jen+Mike October 4, 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

Now this is romance! Jen and Mike are the epitome of cuteness and one of the most fun couples of the season. I met Jen and Mike only a short time before their wedding but I’m so glad I did and that they had me along to capture all the special moments. Mike wasn’t so sure about being on camera and the whole videography thing but I think he did just fine! Jen looked stunning and had THREE hair style changes! She looked amazing with each style of course! Thanks goes out to Lisa From Bliss Events for being the awesome planner for Jen and Mike’s day and to Reid from When He Found Her Photography for being great to work with!

Enjoy this little peek into Jen and Mike’s romance filled day!

Brittany + Paul

BRITTANY + PAUL // September 20 2014 from Bright Sky Wedding Designs on Vimeo.

Brittany and Paul were an absolute joy to work with on their wedding day, the months and days leading up to it and afterwards. Brittany was all smiles and her laugh was definitely infectious! What a beautiful bride she was! Their wedding ceremony was in St. Catharines and their beautiful photo session was in Niagara on the Lake where Paul proposed to Brittany! All their family and friends came to celebrate at Club Roma that evening to toast to the marriage of Brittany and Paul. We wish you all the best in your marriage and thank you so much for choosing us to be with you on your special day!

Congratulations you two!

Bright Sky xoxo
