Jessica & Anthony – Steamwhistle Brewery, Toronto, ON – Wedding Highlight Film

Jessica Nakamura, who is perhaps best known for her supporting role in the 1995 Adam Sandler classic: Billy Madison, emailed us in the fall of 2012 with one of the sweetest notes we will ever get. I’ll summarize by saying she wanted Honey & Dear to film her wedding and she even changed her date and location based on our availability and recommendation.  That really made us feel special, so thanks Jess;)

Jessica the bride smiles during her wedding day preparationsJessica and Anthony had been dating for some ten years by time they finally got to their wedding date. They had a beautiful candlelit ceremony in front of an intimate gathering of family and friends. The Steamwhistle Brewery, (which is our favourite event venue for so many reasons) was the site of the wedding. We just love filming there. So many great features. A great space for designing in. The guests get tours while they wait for the reception to begin. It’s pretty sweet. It was a snowy day in Toronto, but that didn’t stop Jessica and Anthony from having an amazing wedding!

Steph & Ryan – Same Day Edit Wedding Film – Ajax, ON

Stephanie Dimeski & Ryan Hairsine got married on Sunday, December 29, 2013. It was a mild day relatively speaking as most of Southern Ontario had just experienced an Ice Storm that made thousands of homes dark for Christmas. Needless to say, the wedding took place and it was amazing! Check out the Same Day Edit we showed later that night at Stephanie and Ryan’s Wedding.

This wedding will go down for us as a truly memorable one for a few reasons. The first would be how it all started. Emma Griffith, who is related to our dear friends and former H&D couple Alan & Kristine Wisniewski, contacted us back in June telling us that she wanted her best-friend Stephanie to have a film made by Honey & Dear but the key was it needed to be kept a secret! Emma would hire us privately to film Steph and Ryan’s upcoming winter wedding. Emma and Stephanie grew up together, but they hadn’t seen each other in person in over 3 years! Emma, who has been traveling in Europe for work, used Skype to keep in touch, but it wasn’t the same as being together in person. She wanted to do something special and something unique.

When we had our first Skype call with Emma, she was in Oslo, Norway (which on a side note is a place Andrew very much would like to visit). She told us all about their friendship and how much Steph meant to her. Emma arranged a secret meeting between Andrew and Steph at a Starbucks in Ajax. It was equal parts James Bond and Intruder for Andrew, who had his iPhone recording the whole thing (you can see in Steph’s eyes the “What on earth is this Creeper recording me for?!?”). Emma really wanted to see Steph’s reaction when she found out about the surprise! (Emma – we can all laugh about this now – but that’s the last time i’ll be playing the role of weirdo!)

Stephanie Dimeski gets a big surprise

Fast forward to December 29, 2013. With most of the GTA recovering from an ice storm that people will talk about for decades, Steph and Ryan tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the Ajax Convention Centre who we have to mention have an incredible staff from top to bottom and were incredibly helpful not only to the wedding guests but to our team. Thanks for that!

Some more cool things about this wedding. We got to work with Ash Nayler who is a really great photographer from Peterborough. Ash is good friends with close friends of ours and it was our first time working together. Hope we get the chance more often!

What a beautiful wedding. The start of your long journey together. Much love and happiness.

Sarah & Mike – Atlantis Resort Nassau Bahamas Wedding Film – Same Day Edit (sort of)

Sarah & Mike brought Honey & Dear to the Bahamas to film their ‘weddings’. We say ‘weddings’ because they got legally married at City Hall in Toronto a few months ago. Then got married in an Egyptian Coptic Ceremony in Mississauga in mid September. Then, they made sure everything was permanent with a Greek Orthodox Ceremony in Nassau, Bahamas. We put this half engagement story/half same day edit together for these guys and shared it at their Atlantis Resort Reception. We are excited to share our first Destination Wedding Video of 2013:

Did we mention how amazingly cool their reception venue was? It was underneath and beside a giant aquarium filled with Stingrays and Sharks and Big Tuna (we thought of Andy Bernard often).

Screen Shot 2013-09-27 at 8.39.37 PM

We had an incredible time spending five days with Sarah and Mike in the Bahamas. It was also great to be able to spend quality time with Michael and Marian who’s wedding we filmed in 2011. Marian, we’ll watch trashy TV with you anytime!

Huge shout out to Joee Wong and the talented Heidi Lau who did an incredible job on Photography. Thanks for keeping us company including fruit bowling in the Hotel and nearly getting arrested with us by the Bahamian Navy. We managed to spend a day together on the water and rode on jet-skis for a few minutes before getting shut down by the law (because the swells were getting too big!)

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 7.10.49 PMScreen Shot 2013-09-26 at 7.00.57 PM

We had some fun on the water, but when it came time to shoot the wedding, Joee brought the goods and I know for a fact Sarah & Mike will be happy with their wedding photos. We love working with Mr. Wong because he is a talented artist, but he is also equally passionate about supporting us as we make our films. It’s a team-effort that goes a lot farther than you might think.

Thank you Sarah and Mike for having us. We had an incredible time and If you have any more ceremonies you want filmed, we’ll be there:)

Adam & Ginny – Wedding Highlight Film – Graydon Hall Manor, Toronto, ON

We had the amazing opportunity to film Adam & Ginny Weitner’s Wedding on July 27, 2013. Our good friend Aron Goss from Calculated Style Photography recommended us to Adam and Ginny and the rest is history!

Ginny and Adam get married in Toronto

The girls started the day at Hotel Le. Germain in Toronto. They did their hair and makeup and had a relaxed morning.

After the First Look and some photos with Aron, we all headed up to Graydon Hall Manor for the Wedding Ceremony and Reception. There was rain in the forecast and we all waited as long as we could to have the ceremony outdoors, but time running out, the call was made to have the ceremony indoors. Check out the Highlight Film we made that gives you a little taste of the day.

It was a great day and we loved spending it with Adam and Ginny. It was a privilege to be able to film your wedding, guys! Thanks again for having us!

Jen & Corey – Wedding Highlight Film – Science North, Sudbury, ON

Jen & Corey Adams got married on Saturday, June 29th in Sudbury, ON. Wahooo!

Corey’s father, an ordained minister himself from Newfoundland, married the two of them in a touching ceremony.

We had an amazing time hanging out with them. Check out a bit of their story in this wedding highlight film.

Their reception at Science North was one-of-a-kind, filled with incredible decorations at set inside an actual cave! There’s only so much you can put into a 4 minute piece, but the entire day was just so fantastic and we loved getting to know Jen & Corey and their families. It was especially nice to see Jamie again who we met back at Ally & Suman’s Wedding last year!

We had an awesome time getting to know Jen and Corey over the past year through Skype chats and it was amazing to be part of their wedding day!

We were thrilled to get the chance to work with Bernie & Lisa Aho who did an amazing job on Photography! We loved working with them and their images are excellent!
