Cari & Mark – A Wedding Love Story in Penetanguishene, Ontario

Mark and Cari’s wedding day was a beautiful experience and quite an adventure for our video team! The wedding was held in Penetanguishene, Ontario…. north of Toronto and just a short drive from Wasaga Beach. Neither myself nor Ahmad had been to this area of Ontario before, so the trip was definitely going to be a new experience.

The day before the wedding, Ahmad and I loaded up the car and began the six hour trek to Penetanguishene. The winding, tree-lined roads and hilly countryside aren’t something we’re used to seeing in Windsor! We settled down in our hotel for the night and got some rest before the big day.

In the morning, we split up the video team in order to film the preparations. I joined the girls getting ready, while Ahmad joined the guys at their hotel. The day’s events then moved to Discovery Harbour in Penetanguishene. The outdoor ceremony was held on the boardwalk overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay. Against this picturesque backdrop, Cari and Mark exchanged vows and became newlyweds!

For the creative photo/video session, we toured the Discovery Harbour area. We took a stroll on the boardwalk and went out onto the dock. The reception was held at Captain Robert’s Table. As the sun set over the Bay, Mark and Cari’s friends and family celebrated, dining and dancing the night away.

Thank you Cari and Mark for inviting us to Penetanguishene to celebrate with you. The wedding was beyond beautiful, and the trip was an experience we won’t forget. We hope that you love the videos we’ve put together for you!

December 18th, 2010

A stylish Italian wedding at the Art Gallery of Windsor

Just a week before Christmas, we closed out our 2010 wedding season in grand fashion, celebrating the marriage of Carla and Ignazio. It was a big, beautiful, fun wedding day and a perfect way to close out an amazing year.

We brought out a team of three to capture the day of Carla and Ignazio. Preparations took place at the bride and groom’s respective homes, where 13 bridesmaids and 13 groomsmen got ready for the day. Carla and Ignazio exchanged vows at St. Angela Merici Church, in Windsor’s Little Italy.

Once again, we filmed alongside their wedding photographer Brandon Scott Springer and his wife Jessica. For the creative photo session, everyone boarded the limo bus and headed to the Art Gallery of Windsor. The colours, the art and the huge glass walls make a beautiful backdrop for some stunning wedding photos and video.

Afterward, we made our way to the Ciociaro Club for the evening’s festivities. There, we joined the celebration with 400 of Carla and Ignazio’s family and friends… dining and dancing into the night.

Carla and Ignazio, thank you for choosing Perfect Shutter! We hope that you love your videos!

Stacey & Michael | A Vintage Windsor wedding cinematography film

October 9th, 2010

A stylish, vintage inspired wedding at Hellenic Hall in Windsor, Ontario

Stacey and Michael are a super-stylish couple from Windsor, Ontario. Their taste in music, fashion and their sense of style really shone through in the various details of their wedding day.

The weather was perfect, as we packed up and prepared to spend the day with Stacey and Michael. Brian spent the morning with the groom and the guys while I headed over to film Stacey and the bridesmaids. Stacey and the girls were getting ready at the couples’ newly purchased house. The purple living room wall and beautiful window light made for some terrific footage of the bride.

Their traditional Greek ceremony was held at the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Windsor, Ontario. Afterward, we followed along with wedding photographer Eryn Shea and the couple, to Willistead Manor for a creative photo shoot.

We then headed over to the Hellenic Banquet Hall to spend the evening celebrating with Stacey, Michael and all their friends and family. There, we enjoyed a terrific dinner and got a little nostalgic over some classic 80’s tunes!

Thanks for having us along on your wedding day, Stacey and Michael! We hope that you love your videos!

Colleen & Andrew | Fusion wedding video at Pillar and Post, Niagara-On-the-Lake

Colleen & Andrew | A Fusion Wedding Film at the Pillar and Post in Niagara-On-The-Lake

November 5th, 2010

Presenting the wedding of Colleen and Andrew, our second “Fusion” film featuring the photography of Jayme Morrison.

This beautiful autumn wedding took place in picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Once again, the videography team was excited for a little road trip. Neither myself nor Brian had been to Niagara-on-the-Lake before. So, on the night before the wedding, we packed up the filming gear, left Windsor and headed up north.

In the morning, we met with Colleen and the girls at the salon to capture some of the preparations. Brian and I then split up to film each side of the bridal party at two historic Georgian style rental homes. Driving through the Heritage District was like a step back in time. The beautifully restored boutique homes were a perfect backdrop for the morning’s preparations. As well, many of the day’s details reflected Andrew’s Scottish heritage. Everything came together for a beautifully unique wedding day.

Colleen and Andrew exchanged vows at the St. Vincent De Paul Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We then headed out to a local winery for a little taste testing and a creative photo-shoot led by Jayme. The bridal party braved the November cold for some outdoor photos on the winery grounds. We warmed up and then made our way to the reception venue. The evening’s events were held at the Pillar and Post, a beautiful vintage boutique hotel set in a 130 year old building.

Colleen and Andrew, thank you so much for having us along on your wedding day. Along with Jayme’s wedding photos, I hope we were able to vividly capture your wedding day, the way you’ll always want to remember it.

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…

Daniela & Joe | A Fusion Wedding Film at the Rockway Glen Golf Course and Estate Winery

October 10th, 2010

Introducing this special “Fusion” wedding film

…featuring Daniela and Joe. They’re a terrific couple originally from the Niagara region. We were introduced to Daniela and Joe by their photographer Jayme Morrison. Jayme’s a close friend of ours, and by incorporating her amazing imagery with our cinematography, we’ve put together this unique Fusion Wedding Film.

On the day of the wedding, we packed up our gear and hit the 401 on our way to Stoney Creek, Ontario. Brian and I split up to film the girls at Daniela’s home, and the guys at Joe’s place nearby.  We then took a beautiful, scenic drive out to Lincoln, Ontario for the ceremony and reception being held at held at Rockway Glen Golf Course and Estate Winery. Driving through the winding, tree-lined roads of the Niagara Region was simply beautiful. Daniela and Joe exchanged heartwarming vows in an intimate outdoor ceremony.

After the ceremony, we followed along with Jayme and the couple for a creative photo session. The sun was just setting on the winery, making for some perfect photos and video.  We then shared the evening with all their family and friends at the reception, where there was lots of dancing, food and even some singing guests!

Daniela and Joe… it was a pleasure meeting you two, and spending your big day with you.  We had a blast celebrating with you in beautiful Niagara.  We hope that you love how we’ve captured your day!

Maryanne & Nick | A Southwestern Ontario Wedding Video

Maryanne & Nick | Windsor wedding cinematography at Pelee Island Winery

September 25th, 2010

Maryanne and Nick are one of our wonderful couples from Toronto, Ontario and Amherstburg, Ontario, that tied the knot in Windsor.

I first met with Maryanne and Nick for a consultation in back in the winter of 2009. What stood out about them was their genuine joy and excitement about their upcoming wedding. You could tell how much these two cared for each other, which really makes it an honour to be chosen to capture their wedding. They shared with me many of the cool and stylish wedding details, so I knew we were in for a beautiful day.

We started the day filming Nick and the groomsmen at the Hampton Inn Suites, then headed to Maryanne’s home to capture the preparations there. The ceremony was at Cornerstone Community Church just on the outskirts of Windsor.

After a touching ceremony, we followed along with their wedding photographer Stacey Paquette for the creative photo session. A treat was in store for us —  we all headed out to Pelee Island Winery and got some awesome shots in the vineyard and in the winery itself. It was so tempting to try out the local flavours at the winery. Next, we headed off to a cool little alleyway, for some more creative clips.

The reception was full of dancing and LOTS of amazing food, at the Ciociaro Club of Windsor. (We’ve filmed a lot of wedding videography at the Ciociaro Club, and they always do a great job with the catering!) Meeting and getting to know Maryanne and Nick was an absolute pleasure, and we had a blast capturing their special day.

Nick and Maryanne, thanks so much for choosing Perfect Shutter to be part of your wedding day. We hope you love your wedding videos!

Denise & Jeremy | Windsor Wedding Videography | Inspired by Ann Arbor wedding

Denise & Jeremy | A Windsor Wedding Film | Inspired by Ann Arbor and University of Michigan

September 11th, 2010

Our latest Wedding Highlight Reel features Denise and Jeremy, who exchanged vows in the town of Amherstburg, Ontario.

You may actually recognize Jeremy from one of our previous videos; the Windsor wedding of Jen and Adam. Jeremy was one of Adam’s groomsmen, back in July. Now, the roles are switched and it’s Jeremy’s turn to wed the love of his life, Denise.

In the morning, we captured the bridal party preparations and the couple’s gift exchange. We then boarded the limo bus to attend the ceremony at St. John the Baptist Church in Amherstburg, ON. Afterward, we followed along with photographer Julie Welch-Rhodes , to a number of locations across town. Their creative photo-session involved trips to their old high-school, Navy Yard Park and even a couple plays on the football gridiron. Everybody then headed to the Fogular Furlan Club in Windsor to celebrate with Denise and Jeremy, and dance the night away.

Being big Michigan Wolverines fans, unfortunately we couldn’t make it out to Ann Arbor for the wedding. Instead, hints of their Michigan football passion were sprinkled throughout the day — Go Blue! –, Denise and Jeremy’s wedding was a light-hearted, fun and loving occasion. Thanks so much for choosing Perfect Shutter! We wish you all the best, and hope that you love your videos.

Jen & Adam | Windsor Ontario Wedding Film | Teutonia Club Wedding

Jen & Adam | An Amherstburg, Ontario wedding film

Presenting, a beautiful wedding film for Jen and Adam in a town just outside of Windsor, Ontario in Amherstburg. I hadn’t visited Amherstburg in quite some time, so it was a treat to see the town and all its charm all over again.

A bustling downtown area along the shores of the Detroit River just before it emptied into Lake Erie, had so many quaint shops, I wish I had time to walk and stop in each of them! From old fashioned ice cream shops to even a quick sushi restaurant… it had so much charm.

Jen and Adam’s photographer, Stacey Paquette, had some surprises for them for their photo shoot. After the ceremony we were led to the grounds of an old mansion built in the early 1800’s that has since been abandoned. It stood there calm and overlooking the water, once the home of a famous landscape painter and equally as beautiful as the entire day had been for Jen and Adam.

Recently, our bride and groom had yet another occasion to celebrate: after four years of long distance while Adam attended medical school in Missouri, he graduated, and just in time to finally start a wonderful life together with his wife Jen! Congratulations to you two, we are so happy for you.

Lina & Lambros | Detroit Wedding Videography at the Detroit River

‘Like reliving the best dream I ever had! ♥’ – Lina

Lina & Lambros | A Greek wedding film in Windsor, Ontario.

July 3rd, 2010

On a hot and steamy long weekend, our Detroit wedding videography team was invited to capture the wedding of Lina and Lambros. We crossed the border and traveled to Windsor, ON for this gorgeous wedding day, that incorporated both beautiful tradition and some very stylish detail.

We were awed by the traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony. The artwork and church itself was simply stunning. Next, we followed the wedding party down to Windsor’s Summerfest at the river front facing the Detroit River and Detroit skyline for a creative shoot at the carnival. Everyone was having tons of fun and we even attempted some rather daring shots from atop the ferris wheel. The reception was a big, beautiful affair at the Caboto Club full of touching speeches and plenty of dancing.

Congratulations Lina and Lambros! Thanks so much, from the Perfect Shutter wedding cinematography team.
