Driving through the canola fields on a sunny Summer day. Red Ferrari. Top down. What could be better than that? It really was a perfect day for Jayelle and Benji's wedding. From the first look through to the bouquet toss it was just a fantastic experience. But don't take my word for it. Here's the proof:

cinematic wedding movie
It's no secret that East Indian weddings are my favourite. It's the colours, the different traditions and the scale of the receptions that provide so much opportunity for us to be creative film makers. It also helps when the couple is as wonderful as Manpreet and Komal were all week.
The NDE (Next day Edit) is just a little taste of all the events that take place during the week. For this edit, I found it really difficult to keep it short. At 9 minutes, it's still pretty long for this type of edit but I could have made it 15 minutes with all the fantastic footage that came in from all my different shooters. I only wish I could show you guys the footage we captured at the reception now too. (You're just going to have to wait for the the cinematic feature film!). Let me just say, Events by Emma knocked it out of the park. It was, in a word, breathtaking.
So, without further ado:
It's hard for me to talk about Jane and Isaac without gushing with clichés. Spend even 15 minutes with both of them together in a room and you will come out of there more in love with life, and more in love with your significant other than when you arrived. Both of them exude a quiet charm and an obvious and infectious lust for life.
Music is the language of emotion. Professional musicians, especially classical musicians (both Jane and Isaac play for the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra), are generally much more in tune with their emotional selves. You can see that when you watch this movie. They can just lay themselves wide open in a way that very few people can. It makes for deeper, more honest relationships and that in turn makes for an amazing cinematic story.
Thanks go to Debbie from Glamorous Occasions for coordinating the day and bringing us on board, The fort Garry for a great reception and Noella from This Sweet Love photography for being so much fun to work with all day!
I also grabbed a couple of my favourite frames from the video for you to check out and share...
There were no speeches at Belle and Ben's reception. Instead, Belle's sister took some home movies of all the important people answering a few key questions about the couple. We got hold of the home video and included it in this cinematic edit because... well, because it's just awesome!
There were so many great moments throughout the day ... here are a couple of stills taken form the video that were highlights for me!
I always have fun when I am on a shoot. It is one of the great things about doing a job that you love. This wedding was even more fun than usual.
It all happened on location at Camp Wanacumbac in Clear Lake, Manitoba. To call it "scenic" would be an injustice. It was spectacular. Jillian had everything planned down to the littlest detail to make this a perfect day. The outdoor ceremony, the lawn games, the huge tented reception... it was all just right.
Amber and Jordan from It's a Love Thing Photography were a treat to work with and got some stunning images. Dave Ternier from Special Request Weddings was, hands down, the best MC/DJ ever! (Side note: Dave's wife gave birth the morning after the wedding.... so congrats to the Ternier clan!)
Since the overall theme of the weekend seems to have been FUN, I injected this cinematic edit with a double dose! Enjoy the movie and scroll down for some still grabs of my favourite scenes!
