Meet Fu-Lin and Gary! The adorable and down-to-earth couple who tied the knot in an intimate setting full of personal style. The decor, centre pieces, and bouquet were all made with a touch of the couple's taste: simple, rustic, and unique. As wedding professionals, we've been very proud to cater to clients who seek different styles on their special day, and a rustic wedding is definitely one of our favourites.
The ceremony took place at a family residence, followed by a relaxed reception at Gleneagles Golf Course. We were so amazed by the amount of DIY materials that they put together for this event and we certainly enjoyed capturing them and sharing this with you. Needless to say, Fu-Lin and Gary are a very talented couple who stayed true to their vision and crafted their one-of-a-kind wedding from beginning to end.
For lovebirds who adore DIY and rustic style weddings, this blog is for sure the one you can't miss.
We had the pleasure of being part of Jessica and Howard's engagement and wedding. This young, easy-going couple loved being intimate outdoors and we get to really explore and use the temperate rainforest that is in the city as their backdrop. Jessica is a quiet individual, and Howard is a funny and energetic, and romantic. Howard surprised Jessica when he took her on a horse-drawn carriage ride date deep in the forest. In a clearing on the soft bed of the forest floor, he hired Jessie from We Do Weddings Etc to set up a table, flowers, champagne, a violinist, and asked for her hand in marriage.
We were so thrilled to be invited to capture their lovely wedding just a couple months later! The couple said their vows in an intimate outdoor wedding at the beautiful Cecil Green Park House and held their reception on a yacht. Their wedding theme colour was lavender purple which matched so beautifully with the summer flowers and the greenery.

We met Rebecca and Henry more than a year ago. They were one of the early bookings we had for 2014, and we felt very connected to them the first time we met. It was definitely one of the best consultation experiences we had, as they came in with trust and admiration for our work. Moments like these keep our passion for our work aflame. We love to do what we do, and we do it with pride =)
The wedding day kicked off with traditional Chinese door games and tea ceremonies, followed by a Christian ceremony at Tri-City Canaan Church. You can tell that Rebecca and Henry are an amazing couple when the church is full, attended by their loving throng of friends and family. The couple met many years ago in their third grade class at Clinton Elementary but the bride-to-be moved away before finishing the year. Fast forward 10 years later, Henry recognized his third-grade classmate when he accidentally blocked Rebecca's sprint up the stairs to an English class, and started making conversation to the startled, skeptical girl. They met up the next day to compare class photos - Rebecca was certain that she would've remembered him - and was amused to learn that they had indeed crossed paths long ago. The two instantly became close friends, and three years later Henry got down on his knee on the steps of their University - the place where they officially met - and asked for her eternal affection!
Their wedding was fun and filled with laughter, and we were extremely thrilled to have had the opportunity to shoot this special day with such a delightful couple. This was also one of the most rewarding wedding shoots. The team came back with plenty of praises and thanks from not only the couple and wedding party, but also many of the guests. This is one of the reasons why we love Same Day Edits. We are honored to be your video team for your special day and thank you for all the trust and support you have for us. =)

We met Jessica and Nathan for almost a decade ago, they are two genuine, kind-hearted friends that one is lucky to have. We knew that this couple will eventually tie the knot and start a new chapter in their life together one day, we just didn't know when it was going to happen. When Nathan approached us with the good news of they're finally getting married, it also came with a very heart-breaking news that Jessica's dad only has so many days left before he can't walk the aisle with his daughter. It was an emotional news for us.
Despite all the pressure on putting a wedding together within 4 weeks, working out of town, visiting hospital everyday, and all the other bits and pieces, Jessica and Nathan managed to be strong and their wedding was unique and beautiful. We are very honored to be their videographers to capture such significant day for them and the family. Every moment is important and needs to be well reserved. We were very glad to show Jessica's dad parts of the ceremony when we visited the hospital just right after the ceremony. It was a very emotional, tearful, but also joyful moment for everyone.
Nathan and Jessica managed to have their wedding celebrated at, for the very first time, Vancouver International Airport (YVR)/Fairmont Vancouver Airport! It was an unique experience for everyone including us. Can you imagine having a wedding at the airport, turning it into a ballroom, and also having a slow motion booth too? No need to imagine all that, you'll see it all in the video!
"Two are better than one!"
Love brought Willette and Dominic together by surprise. Willette never thought they would be together and here they are, at "this beautiful hotel", they sealed their promises with the kiss. Dominic and his groomsmen went through all the infamous Door Games, even with one that we've never seen, the "Break the Eggs Hump"! And man, that chocolate on the diaper looks too real! In the SDE, one of the groomsmen licked the "brown" part on the diaper and said with a relief "oh ok it's chocolate." That was hilarious!
We were so glad to see Christina from Red Carpet Ready by Christina at Willette's wedding. One of our recent additions to our Favourite Make-up Artists. Christina did an amazing job for Willette - different looks from white wedding gown to the traditional Chinese red gown with a touch of the big red rose in Willette's hair design. Near the end of the day, we overheard Dominic saying how Christina did an amazing job with all the beautiful make-up and hair styling; he even mentioned how Willette was once a tomboy so he's not used to the looks but she looked absolutely beautiful. Though we weren't the make-up artist but we were so proud hearing that!
It was a pleasure to work with Willette and Dominic and we are grateful that another bride Amy recommended us to them. We love our couples and grateful for the kind people that we get to work with. Willette and Dominic were definitely a great couple to have. Thanks for trusting us to capture your beautiful day.
