Dracula Inspired Wedding

Happy Halloween everyone! One of my favourite days of the year is finally here. Candy? Check. Chocolate? Check. Costumes? Check! Today's post is in honour of this spooky day, although "All Hallow's Eve" may be a more suitable inspiration as it's a little more romantic and moody than your typical Halloween wedding. Like talk about taking "Till Death Us Part" to the next level. Bride and groom Frank and Marie wanted an entertaining wedding that exuded drama and elegance. Inspired by Bram Stoker's Dracula, the wedding pulled on Victorian and Gothic romanticism the wedding was dripping in roses (over 6000 to be...

Wedding Wednesday – Michelle & Ross’ Engagement Video

We know it's Wedding Wednesday but we're going to change it up a bit. Instead of sharing one of our couples' wedding day videos, we are going to share one of their engagement videos. What is an engagement video you ask? It's a 3-5 minute video that highlights you as a couple, your quirks, your hopes and your personalities. It showcases your story, how you met, how you got engaged, what you love about eachother and what you hope for the future. Most couples get engagement photos done so we thought, why not an engagement video? What a great memento...

In Canada, May 2-4, aka the Victoria Day long weekend, is the start to the summer season.

Wedding Wednesday – Ashley & Matt

You guys. I am legitimately obsessed with this wedding. When your career is essentially attending a wedding (sometimes 2 or 3) a week, everything starts to blend into one. But Ashley and Matt did such an incredible job with the small details, this wedding stands out. Now for starters, I may be a little biased because there is a special place in my heart for a) confetti and b) balloons and Ashley and Matt's wedding was filled to the brim with both. Firstly, have you seen that chain-link balloon wedding arch?! Like come on. That might be the coolest, more creative...

Today we're going to do Wedding Wednesday a little bit different. Instead of sharing one of the beautiful weddings we shot, we will be sharing 52 weddings the Brightside Films team has shot!

Wedding Wednesday – Jenn & Adam

Have you ever noticed that Wednesday's are usually the gloomiest day of the week? Like, if we probably delved into some historical statistics I bet this would be a proven fact. Not to mention that Wednesdays happen to be Hump Day, also known as the worst day of the work week (well, maybe second to Monday). These two things combined mean Wednesdays generally suck. That's why Wedding Wednesdays are the best. A little sparkle to add to the grey skies and impending work load. And today's Wedding Wednesday featuring the wedding videography of Jenn and Adam will surely add that extra...

Wedding Wednesday – Anna & Ross

I'm over the snow. I feel ridiculous saying that because this Winter is nothing compared to the last two years, but when you spend your days editing summer wedding videos, you can't help miss the green grass, blue skies and 20+ temperatures. I'm sure you'll feel the same way after you watch today's Wedding Wednesday post from Ross and Anna's wedding, basically the epitome of a perfect summer day. Ross and Anna met as teenagers at rowing club in 2002, where Ross' mother was the coach. Anna developed a crush on Ross who she says made all those 5am early morning...

Trend Report – Dog Videographers

I couldn't resist the title. This video is so amazing. I mean, obviously the quality isn't the best but what a great way to gather an added perspective on your big day. A heartfelt addition to a stellar videography service! Josh and Addie Burnette strapped a GoPro camera to their pup Ryder for an extra personal video of their wedding day. On their 1 year anniversary, the newlyweds released the footage on Youtube, hilariously commenting "Our dog, Ryder, insisted on filming the wedding video, so we let her do her thing. She took awhile to edit the footage, but we think she did...

Fall Fruit Wedding Decor

One of the best things about Fall, is the food. I think we can all agree that Autumn has some of the best harvest seasons of the year. And it's not just good for eating! Fall brings out some of the Earth's richest colours that look great as table decor (and we're not talking on the plate). Not to mention fall fruit is a lot more affordable then the ample amounts of flowers most brides usually order. So let's take a look at some options to shake up your fall wedding decor. What are your favourites? We personally love the pomegranates....
