We realize that words will not do Natasha & Dan’s dreamy wedding justice…so thank goodness we have the entire day on vintage film to share with you! But for those of you who like to read some behind-the-scenes notes before watching a film, this is for you…
There were so many moments that touched us as we watched Natasha & Dan say “I do” and celebrate with their friends and family. From the groom’s emotional reaction to his gift from his bride-to-be (not to mention his jump for joy as he walked down the aisle!), to the bridesmaids excitement…even the sunshine cinematically punctuated the emotions of the day. Just like in a big-screen movie, the morning weather did not look promising for an outdoor ceremony. But moments before Natasha began dressing in her stunning wedding gown the sun poured in through the windows and the skies remained clear for the rest of the day. Amazing!
While Natasha was not responsible for the sunshine, she did bring together so many other details that warmed our hearts. We loved the glittering gold, pink and light turquoise colour scheme, the unique handmade ceremony backdrop set against a stunning outdoor vista, how the bridesmaids carried white, heart-shaped helium balloons instead of bouquets, their reception dripping with handcrafted details, and the cozy, romantic bonfire at the end the evening. Ready to see it all on 16mm and super 8mm film?
One more thing: Natasha & Dan’s vineyard celebration of love was just so spectacular that it will soon be featured on Four Weddings Canada – we just can’t wait to see it! Congratulations and lots of love to the sweet couple!
