Sophie & Tim got married this past weekend in her parent’s backyard. It was a really sweet ceremony and we love how much Sophie and Tim love each other. Watch their Same Day Edit.

Music in this Same Day Edit is by the band Augustana “Just Stay Here Tonight”.

Also – take a look at their Love Story which is one of my favourites to date.

We had a blast working with our friend Rebecca Wood who took some pretty awesome photos!

Thank you so much Sophie and Tim for having us – we’ll see you soon!

  • Sophie - No, thank YOU Andrew and Emily for making our day so so special:)

Erin & Hussein got married on Canada Day, July 1, 2011 in Toronto, Ontario holding their ceremony at the historic Hart House at University of Toronto and their cocktail reception at the top of the Manulife Building at Panorama.

This is just a teaser of their Main Feature wedding film.

We had such a fantastic time spending the day with Erin & Hussein. Thanks guys for having us!

Music – Go On – Jack Johnson – Buy the song here

Special thanks to our friend Lee Weston who did an amazing job photographing their wedding! You can see her photos from the wedding here

Erin gets ready to marry Hussein

  • Robyn Chew - Brilliant!! Awesome job guys:)

  • Erin & Hussein - Ahhhhh!!! We’re still on our honeymoon and just getting a chance to comment on this! We love it. Thank you so much. Your work speaks for itself. Incredible stuff. Hope San Fran was great! Much love, E & H

Valerie & David got married at On The Park, a hidden gem of a reception venue in the middle of Toronto. This is the Same Day Edit wedding film we made for them.

This was a big wedding for us – and there was a lot on the line because Valerie had told us numerous times that she had watched every single one of our videos to date and constantly refreshed her RSS to see when we would post new videos. We had to make sure when it was her turn that we didn’t disappoint!

We loved this wedding for so many reasons. The rich tradition in the Jewish wedding culture was fascinating and really inspiring. All of the men – including Drew & Andrew – had to wear Yamakas for the Bedecking and the Ceremony. That was a first and it was really cool to learn and be a part of it all.

The Hoorah was also a lot of fun – crazy energy – we had to kind of muscle our way into the crowd – but it was worth it!

Thank you so much to Sarah – the amazing wedding coordinator who kept the day moving ahead and really made our jobs easy!

We loved working with Marc from Crabtree Photography – crabtreephotography.com/​#

We hope you both enjoy this film as much as we enjoyed making it for you, Valerie & David. Thank you so much for having us – we loved every minute of it!

Whitney & James got married on a perfect afternoon in Alliston, Ontario. We made a Same Day Edit wedding film for them. Here it is!

Thanks so much for having us guys! It was great getting to know you and we look forward to more tasty pizza dates at our favourite wood fired pizza restaurant!

Tommy & Nichole got married this past weekend at the gorgeous Lora Bay Golf Club just west of Collingwood, Ontario. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony with not a cloud in the sky. Nichole started her day at the Mosaic Hotel in Blue Mountain. Tommy started his at Lora Bay. Tommy was very excited about his shoes. They were pretty stellar Louis Vuitton Shoes.

After a simple outdoor ceremony performed by a Justice of the Peace, they went for a photoshoot with our good friend Nat Caron. There was a fairly hilarious part that not enough people saw where Nat’s assistant Brent strapped me to the back of a Golf Cart (where the bags usually go) and I filmed Tommy & Nichole while Brent was driving. It was amazing and also terribly dangerous on several levels:)What we do for a good shot!

Well – enough rambling – here’s the Same Day Edit we created for Tommy & Nichole.

For those of you who don’t know what a Same Day Edit is – allow me to explain – we film and edit this 3-5 minute short film and have it ready to show at your reception around 10:00pm or so. We bring the projector and screen and everyone gathers around. It’s a lot of fun!

The music in this Same Day Edit is “Come Home” – Chappo – EP

  • Paulina - I cannot get over how amazing this piece is. Being the sister of the groom (who embarrassed herself by bawling in front of everyone), this almost had me in tears again. Thank you for doing a wonderful job!
    Is the beach piece available to us as well?

    Thanks a lot,
    Paulina

  • Paulina - I cannot get over how amazing this piece is. Being the sister of the groom (who embarrassed herself by bawling in front of everyone), this almost had me in tears again. Thank you for doing a wonderful job!

    Thanks a lot,

  • Paulina - Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I’m gonna start crying again (yes, this is the sister of the groom, the one that cried in front of everyone during the speech). You guys did an amazing job. So impressed!!

    Is the beach piece (the engagement type shoot) available to us as well?

    Anyways, thanks again for this artwork,
    Paulina

  • Nichole - This is the bride! I have a few minutes of internet at my disposal and wanted to write a quick note to say: Andrew and Emily are wonderful, normal, easy-going people who YOU WANT TO FILM YOUR WEDDING. I am very critical and choosy and I only had to see their work ONCE and I was 100% sure that these people were the ones for me :)

Alli & Roman had a stunning Gibson Centre Wedding in Alliston, Ontario. Here’s the Same Day Edit wedding film we created for them.

When we first met Alli & Roman, we instantly knew these two were perfect for each other. They are amazingly comfortable with each other. We love how much they love each other. Alli is the most down-to-earth bride we’ve ever met. We really loved getting to know them and their adorable pets!

It seems to be a bit of a pattern this wedding season that rain has been a part of the story. It absolutely poured from about 8:00am through until at least noon. Roman had plans to go fishing in the morning but that got shelved. Alli was quite safe and warm having her hair done – the rain didn’t bother her at all.

The rain finally stopped and the day went ahead as planned. A really cool part of the ceremony was a Russian tradition of bread and salt being presented from Roman’s mom where the one who took the biggest bite of the bread was officially in charge of the house-hold. Roman won by a healthy margin!

Thanks so much Alli and Roman for having us – we loved being there for you guys and we hope you’ll enjoy this film for years to come. P.s. – how were the midnight cheeseburgers?

We always love the treat of working with our pal Nat Caron who photographed the wedding and her amazing assistant Brent who provided the muscle! This was our first wedding with our brand new 10′ x 6′ portable screen for showing the Same Day Edits. I have to admit – I was pretty impressed with how it looked!

The music in this Same Day Edit is Weighty Ghost – Wintersleep

  • Roman - Absolutely amazing how in three minutes you have managed to capture a poetic “coles notes” take on the day that brings tears of emotion to my eyes with every viewing. I know many people in many different occupations, but you Andrew and Emily, top a short list of those who have truly found their calling. You are instinctually always at the right place at the right time

Actually getting together in person with Zoe and Tim proved to be a bit of a comedy of errors. They were planning a wedding in Barrie remotely from Montreal and whether it was a snowstorm or conflicting schedules – we ended up having to reschedule more than once!

We finally met Zoe and Tim for Thai food followed by some of the best stand up comedy we’ve ever experienced a few months ago! Our friend Nat Caron who photographed their wedding joined us for the comedy night. Tim, a touring comedian was the host for a Yuk Yuks comedy tour which as he explained is a job reserved for the truly experienced comedians because they have to warm up the crowd and keep the night going. Zoe is in the background of the comedy world – producing and scouting new comedians for the Just For Laughs festival among other things.

Zoe & Tim got married exactly the way they wanted to. It happened to be perfectly planned down to the breadstick but at the same time nothing about this wedding was about being on schedule. Zoe didn’t walk down an aisle. Tim didn’t wait to see his bride. The both woke up together and spent their wedding day side by side.

In the company of friends and family, Zoe and Tim gathered everyone together at the foot of the pond and said ‘let’s get married’. We had an amazing time with them and here’s a little teaser of the day.

Thank you guys for having us – we had such an amazing time spending your wedding day with you!

Music – Guster – ‘This Could All Be Yours’ – Buy their music here

Also – one last thing – this wedding wouldn’t have been the same without the fine melodies from Josh Cockerill and his band. They were incredible and their CD is amazing. Check them out here

  • Zoe Rabnett - YAY! Thanks so much you guys – we LOVE this! We have no idea how you did it – we have no memory of you guys being in some of the places that you obviously must have been. You´re stealthy and awesome – we can´t wait to see the rest!! Big hugs and many thanks! xo Zoe & Tim

  • Cameron Fraser - That is a terrific little film. Looking forward to the big film.

  • Cameron Fraser - This is a great little film. It, very much, captures the day. I’m looking forward to the director’s cut and, perhaps, some commentary from Zoe and Tim.

  • Marissa - Beautiful film, can I ask where in Barrie it was shot? Private or Public space?

  • Andrew Sorlie - Hey Marissa! Thanks! This Wedding was at a private family property in midhurst. I’m quite certain it’s not available as a venue… :( too bad because it’s stunning!

    We do know of a similar place- email us at hello@honeyanddear.com

Laura & Cris are really awesome people. We first met them in October and we fell in love with them when Cris told us he’d rather just have a great wedding film than traditional wedding photography if he had to choose. Don’t get me wrong – we love wedding photography when it’s done well – but it was nice to know how much Cris valued the quality of our work and honestly just made us feel nice! We were able to connect Laura and Cris with our friend Michael Steingard for photography who did an amazing job photographing their wedding.

It was clear to us how much family meant to Laura and Cris. There was a lot of family in town for the wedding including some from Italy. Their Catholic Mass wedding ceremony took place St. Lawrence the Martyr Church in Scarborough with a beautiful traditional Italian reception following at The Venetian Banquet Hall. The rain made things interesting with an un-planned trip to Wal-Mart to buy some matching umbrellas.

Take a look at this Same Day Edit highlight film that we shot, edited and presented at their reception on 4 giant screens!

Thank you Laura & Cris for having us at your wedding. We loved spending the day with you and your family and we hope you guys enjoy your honeymoon in St. Lucia!

You can purchase the music featured in this Same Day Edit – My Darling – Life In Letters (Bonus Track Version) by Lucy Schwartz.

It has been a great month for your friends at Honey & Dear.

We recently announced that we are now fully booked for 2011 with 25 amazing couples – three of who’s weddings we’ve already had the pleasure of filming.  Our next wedding is just days away and we’re so excited for that!

Another very exciting piece of news is that we have a new team member – Amanda Zummach!  She will be joining us at weddings as a Junior Cinematographer.  She’s pretty awesome. We love her and I’m sure you will too!

We had the pleasure of exhibiting at the Wedding Co. Spring Wedding Show at the Drake Hotel in Downtown Toronto.  The show was a great success and we met some really great people including some amazing jewelry designers who will definitely be telling you more about down the road.  Take a look at this video we created for a taste of the event!


 

And to close this little update, I wanted to share a note we just got from our friends AJ & Greg who were married last October: “Emily and Andrew, We  are forever grateful for all of your hard work and dedication towards  the two of us and our special day. Your film and beautiful presentation  will forever be a keepsake in our home and a sentiment of the love we  have for each other. A million thanks you’s. Your friends, Greg and AJ”.

We say it to everyone we meet. We started this business with by filming friends’ weddings and it’s our goal to continue to do that as many times as possible.  We aren’t satisfied with the traditional ‘vendor/client’ roles that are somewhat typical in the wedding world. We’ve always been about skipping past that and developing friendships and that for me anyways is my favourite part about Honey & Dear.

Thanks for reading.

We filmed this Same Day Edit (technically a same-two-day-edit) in Singapore on February 26 & 27th.  Jocelyn & Michel are two very sweet people who are truly in love.

Jocelyn is very laid back – kind of like Andrew that way! She has a gorgeous smile and is simply beautiful.  Michel is more reserved and when you see him crack a smile – you know he’s got to be happy about something!

Jocelyn & Michel got married at their church in Singapore and had their reception the following day at the Four Seasons in Singapore.  The room was so meticulously designed and the food was out of this world.  Andrew (not a seafood eater) even tried Scallops using Chopsticks!  I’m very proud of him!

We hope you enjoyed having us you guys – we loved traveling to Singapore to spend your wedding with you. I think we can both agree that Singapore is our new favourite city.
