#ForeverDuncan – Groom Surprises Bride with Wedding Six Hours After Proposing

Well, it's official. 2016 is far from over and we have our Groom of the Year award. Alfred Duncan, who is a Grammy nominated R&B singer, had the surprise of a lifetime planned for his beautiful bride to be Sherrel, a personal trainer. A mere six hours after sweeping her off her feet with a romantic proposal, Duncan took social media by storm with a surprise wedding. Yes, you read that right. Six hours later, as in the same day, as in yesterday. Lucky for us internet folk, the whole thing was captured on social media and was trending within hours....

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...

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...

Special Edition Wedding Wednesday – 52 Weddings in 3.5 Minutes

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! Yup, you read that right. 52 of our wedding videos compiled into a wonderful, love-filled 3.5 minute wedding highlight film. What started out as multiple small projects - creating Instagram preview and teaser videos for our numerous couples, turned into one of Brightside Films' greatest video accomplishments. This video not only showcases our talented videographers (both aerial and ground) and our dedicated editing team, but it is also...

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...

Wedding Wednesday – Amanda & Alex

Hooray, it’s Wednesday! And you know what that means? Wedding Wednesday time! It's been awhile since we've done a Wedding Wednesday post so we're making it up to you today with a beautiful, classic wedding. Today we are sharing with you the wedding of Amanda and Alex from The Rosehill Lounge , one of Toronto's hidden gem wedding venues. We love the character Rosehill has with the exposed beams and rich wood textures that are complimented by the brick features. It really plays well into Amanda and Alex's old Hollywood theme. We love how you get such a strong sense of family from these two. Throughout the...

Wedding Wednesday – Kimberly & Andre

For today's Wedding Wednesday we're going to bring a classic engagement video out of the archives. Remember Andre's amazing proposal to Kimberly? The engagement video we shot for them in 2013 went viral on Youtube amassing almost 275,000 views! Holy moly is right! Check out our blog post on it here. Well, this beautiful couple got married and we had the honour of capturing their wedding day. Now, I'm sure you can imagine that if Andre put that much thought and effort into his proposal, the wedding must be out of this world. And you would be correct. No detail left...

Wedding Wednesday – Casandra & Zach

Happy Wednesday lovelies! If you're hitting that wall mid afternoon, we have the perfect little distractor for you! A new Wedding Wednesday post. And it's a good one! Who can resist high school sweethearts? We sure can't! Cassandra and Zach met at 15 years old while working together at McDonalds. Over 10 years later, well 3878 days to be precise, they finally exchanged vows and got married. And lucky us, we captured it all on video! Cassandra and Zach got married at the lovely Hidden Valley Resort in Muskoka, one of our favourite wedding venues. We love all the little rustic touches...
