I know it’s Tuesday, which means we’ve gotten over the Monday blues, but just in case they’re sticking around a little longer this week, I’ve absolutely got the remedy in this beautiful film from Paperback Films. It’s a total dream and the smile that will appear on your face in the first three seconds of this film will stick around for the rest of the day.
From the cinematographer… Kate was well in-tune with what we were creating for people and what it meant. Jeff and Kate both live out in Vancouver. The story of how they got there is fascinating. When we see these two holding hands, crossing over a divide in the garden and walking in parallel to meet again at the end – it is really a strong metaphor to how they ended up together. After a few disappointing years, Kate gave up on relationships. She decided to move out west to begin a new life, where she found herself working at a bank. There, she interacted with customers as they came and went until Jeff came through those doors. Jeff made an effort to keep coming back to her and before they knew it, they were together at last.
If you’ve ever met a guy who is passionate about life, Jeff is that person. The morning of his wedding, though he was a bit shy at first, he quickly forgot about cameras following him around. He’s the type of person who isn’t often caught off guard. His passion lies in fitness and training which goes so well with his character – strong, witty and sharp. When he turned around and gazed into Kate’s eyes for the first time, his heart started pounding and for the first time that day he was at a loss for words. From there on, he forgot everything else in the world and focused on her. They shared this important day with friends and family gathered for a rooftop ceremony, followed by a wonderfully warm reception downstairs at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. It’s always fun working with friends and we had the pleasure of working with Luckygirl Photography that day as well. We hope you enjoy.

Many a pretty wedding has marched through our pages over the years, but when we’re talking a wedding planner’s wedding? Well, those are always a little extra special. *Cue*Soiree Event Planning’s “I do” beautifully captured by Paperback Films. It’s trend meets tradition with no design stone unturned, and it’s all waiting for you to press “play.”
From Paperback Films… We’ve always find a couple scenarios that could potentially make us get really nervous when filming. Things like bad weather; it can really change the look and feel of the day. It was something else for this wedding. It was filming someone whom you deeply respect and know as a friend. You always want to make the story perfect. The butterfly’s where of plenty.
We have known Andrea for a long time, both personal and professionally. We usually have the great privilege of working with her event planning company, Soiree Event Planning. She has literately seen us in every scenario possible, especially during same day edit. So naturally, when she asked us to film her wedding, we were thrilled!
What we love about this film is its such a simple, timeless story. Andrea could have done anything she wanted. She has seen it all. But she kept everything meaningful and elegant for herself and her husband Ryan. A simple expression of exactly who they are. It was a privilege to be apart of this day. We were able to once again, not only work along side Andrea, a friend, but were also a witness of their commitment and celebration.

If there is one thing this gorgeous day has taught me, it’s that lavender and navy blue make one seriously stunning combination. Well, that, and these two high school sweethearts are the cutest duo ever. Together with the help of some amazing vendors (think Jillian Tree Photography and The Little Flower Shop ), they threw a wedding that is as heartwarming as it is pretty. See it all right here.
From Jillian Tree Photography… Taralee & Nathan got married in October in Rosenort, a tiny town near Winnipeg, Canada. Taralee got ready at her parents’ home…and what a lovely location for putting on her wedding dress! They got married at their church, Rosenort EMC Church, with the reception (with customized cream soda bottles!) also held there. The ring bearer & flower girl were absolutely adorable, and the bridesmaid dresses were the most brilliant, beautiful navy blue. And such gorgeous bouquets by The Little Flower Shop!
After the reception, we went right outside for the bridal party photos, where we found this perfect little abandoned building with colorful chairs! Sunset time was perfect for the couple pictures. We also headed to this famous little white Church between the highways, the sunset on the flat prairie land in the background was beyond stunning!
