27 Feb

Amanda & Anthony’s wedding is here! So many perfect details filled every moment of this wedding and the beauty started with the bridal preparations. We ended up shooting more rolls of films in the bridal suite alone than ever before!

Enjoy a glimpse into yet another stunning Marry Me Productions wedding…

A Luxurious Fairmont Wedding

11 Feb

A year before Amanda & Anthony celebrated their wedding at Fairmont Château Laurier, we met them at Engage Ottawa, a boutique bridal show. Little did we know that we would be filming their spectacular wedding at the very same venue less than one year later.

Kizil & Sean’s wedding: the most beautiful thing

26 Jan

Oh, these two! Kizil & Sean are an elegant, playful couple who remained light-hearted even though falling rain was threatening their outdoor ceremony. Guess what happened next? The clouds cleared just in time for the two to be married outside as planned!

Watch all the wedding day beauty amongst the vintage barns of Stonefields, and you’ll meet a sweet dachshund wearing a bow tie (who normally spends his days at Kizil & Sean’s popular pet boutique Cricket & Company) and witness a fun and touching mother/son dance.

Love as bright as ever

Kizil & Sean were married at Stonefields this past October. What a treat is was to finally create a wedding film at this venue and for such a loving and cool couple!

Knowing most newlyweds ideally want to share their wedding with family over the holidays I worked extra hard to have this film ready before Christmas. The day after Kixil & Sean received their film the bride sent me this lovely note – what a sweet gift it was to receive on Christmas Eve!



Sean and I have watched the video at least 10 times since yesterday. You made our wedding look so beautiful. We cannot express how much we love it. You are truly talented and we are so glad you captured our wedding on film.You were a treat to work with from start to finish. You were nothing but professional and easily reachable (especially through my innumerable and probably annoying questions). The day of the wedding, we were all so surprised how undetectable you were. I mean this in the best way possible. You were not intrusive at all, but you captured EVERYTHING! How did you do it?

Sean and I are so glad that we choose you as our filmmaker. Film as a medium has the capability to capture complete moments, sometimes, the moments need time to develop. You captured all those moments and combined them so beautifully into a complete summary of the day. Not only did you capture the excitement of our family and friends, but you were able to grab private genuine moments. Our film was exceptionally edited, there was not one bad frame. Start to finish it was flawless. Bridget, you are a very talented woman.

Finally, I want to thank you for finishing our video before Christmas. What a great gift it was to share our special day with family and friends. You went above and beyond to find a server to host it online for everyone to see. I’m pretty sure my mother has been playing it on loop since I sent her the link.

Again, Sean and I very grateful for your work. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends.

Happy New Year film lovers!

We’ve been wanting to share this film with you for quite a while but due to some technical issues have only been able to post it now. So finally, here it is! And really, we are thrilled to start 2015 with Jen & Jess’ lovely wedding day under a bright blue sky.

Here’s to a new year filled with love and beautiful first kisses.
