Allison &Brian | A Windsor, Ontario wedding film

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

This particular wedding holds a great deal of special personal meaning to me

I’ve known Brian and Allison for many years. We’re all originally from Windsor, Ontario and we went to the same high school together. During our days attending Vincent Massey Secondary School, I saw these two meet and witnessed their relationship grow. So when they contacted me about filming their wedding, I knew it’d be a special experience.

Allison and Brian now live out of town, so preparations were done at their respective parents’ homes. Brian Hansen filmed Allison and the girls, and I headed out to spend the morning with Brian and the guys. After getting ready, the guys went out for a little road hockey and a game of pool.

The beautiful ceremony took place at the historic Mackenzie Hall in Sandwich town. There, Brian and Allison exchanged some very sweet, personal vows and officially began a new chapter of their lives.

After the ceremony, we followed along with their photographer Tracie, from Focal Point Photography for a creative photo session. We toured around the grounds of Mackenzie Hall and took a trip down to the parks along the Detroit River. (On a side note… if you’re from the Detroit area or southeastern Michigan, you must come over to Windsor to take in the beautiful skyline of Detroit from Windsor’s perspective!) The girls braved the November cold, and we caught some beautiful footage!

The reception was held at a beautifully decorated Ciociaro Club. Guests dined, danced and enjoyed the Perfect Shutter Photo Booth. For me, it was a great time seeing some familiar faces from high school, too. It was really a special, personal experience being a part of the wedding day of a couple of old friends.

Allison and Brian, thanks so much for having us along on the most important day of your lives. It really was an honour and a pleasure being part of it all. Wishing you all the love and happiness in life…
