Windsor Ontario Wedding Videography | Catherine and Jason

Catherine and Jason | A Wedding love story at Fogolar Furlan in Windsor, Ontario

Catherine and Jason – A Wedding Love Story in Windsor, Ontario

Catherine and Jason were married this summer on a hot and steamy August day. The wedding day festivities brought our video team to various locations across Windsor as we captured their special moments.

We began the day with Jason getting ready at home, with his groomsmen. It was a fun and relaxed atmosphere as the guys got dressed and shared some drinks. Jason opened up a personal message and gift from his bride-to-be, before heading off to the church.

We then made our way over to Catherine’s, where our bride was getting ready with her team of girls. With the help of her mother and bridesmaids, Catherine put on her beautiful white dress. She opened up her card and gift from Jason, and then we all went out to the front of the house for some photos and filming.

The ceremony was held at St Angela Merici church, on Erie Street. There, Catherine and Jason shared their vows and exchanged wedding rings before their friends and family. They sealed their promise with a kiss and became husband and wife!
For the creative session, we worked alongside their photographer Ahmad A. Taam of Signature Design & Photography. We began the shoot at Jackson Park, filming around the picturesque Queen Elizabeth Gardens.

Then, we made our way to the Hiram Walker Canadian Club Brand Centre. We did some shooting inside the historic building, and also ventured out into their well-manicured gardens.

The reception was held at the Fogular Furlan…. beautifully decorated in purple, white and crystals. Catherine and Jason shared their first dance to Christina Perri’s “1000 years”, while fog billowed around them (we love fog machines!). We enjoyed the speeches throughout dinner and captured the celebration that went into the night.

Congratulations Catherine and Jason! It was a pleasure being there to capture your special day. We hope you love your videos!

Anita & Roy – A Wedding Love Story in Windsor, Ontario

Anita and Roy were married this summer in a luxurious and elegantly styled wedding. This sweet and stylish couple planned a beautiful wedding that was nothing short of a fairytale!

We first joined Roy getting ready with his groomsmen and family. Our groom got dressed, putting on his tuxedo with a classic cummerbund. Roy then finished off the look with a new Rolex, courtesy of his bride-to-be. We then made our way over to Anita’s where she and the girls were getting ready. Anita slipped into her stunning wedding dress and topped it off with an incredible pair of Sergio Rossi shoes. After opening up a gift from Roy and reading an emotional note… Anita was ready to head to the church.

The ceremony was held at St Anne’s Parish in Tecumseh, Ontario. There, Anita and Roy said their “I Do’s” and became the new husband and wife!

We then joined with their photographer, Eryn Shea for the creative session. We did some shooting with the beautiful classic car they had reserved for transportation and toured around Willistead Park.

The reception was held at a beautifully decorated Ciociaro Club. Anita and Roy took centre stage with an amazing head table set-up. After dinner, the crowd was entertained by two belly dancers. Everyone then joined them on the dance floor and danced the night away.

Congratulations Roy and Anita! It was a pleasure being part of your big day. We hope you love your videos!

P.S. See their wedding photos by Eryn Shea.

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 | 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.

Sonia & Steven | A Leamington, Ontario wedding film at the Roma Club

August 21st, 2010

A little bit of rain couldn’t put a damper on the beautiful wedding day of Sonia and Steven. So, on August 21st, we packed up the filming gear and headed to the town of Leamington, Ontario about 45km south of Windsor, Ontario to capture their special day. I picked up our special-guest-shooter for the day, Jana Kendrick, and we were off to capture a love story.

Despite spending my whole life here in Windsor, I’ve never really ventured out into Essex County very much. With the GPS leading the way, we filmed the ladies preparing at home in Leamington, then met with the groom and the men at the Seacliffe Inn. The ceremony was held at St. John The Evangelist and the reception was at the Roma Club. It was my first time to either location. A new venue is always different and interesting to shoot!

The reception was a great time. A live band kept everyone busy on the dancefloor. There was so much happiness and laughter throughout the whole night, and I think the video is a good reflection of that.

Congratulations to Sonia and Steve! We thank you for choosing Perfect Shutter. Hope you love the 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.
