Chelsea + Jon – Mountain Wedding Video in Canmore

 

Mountain weddings are the best! I was thrilled to be asked to film Chelsea + Jon’s wedding in Canmore back in July of this year. Several years ago I filmed Jon’s brother’s wedding in Edmonton, and it was great to see Jessica and Justin at another wedding…this time with babies in tow.

The bridal party got ready at the beatiful Solara Resort & Spa in Canmore in the morning. At first I was worried when no-one was even in the room with less than two hours to go the ceremony, but somehow everyone was ready on time, no-one seemed rushed, Chelsea even did her own hair and make-up in that time, and one of the bridesmaids decorated the wedding cake! That was one great thing about the whole day was how relaxed, happy and chill everyone was the whole time. The way it should be on a wedding day.

The ceremony and reception were at the Silvertip Resort which can’t really be beaten for views and mountain atmosphere, perched up above the town of Canmore.
It was my first time working with photographer Corrina Walker and she was absolutely brilliant to work with. Can’t wait to head back to Canmore for my next wedding.

Marisa + Marcos – Same Day Edit (Fairmont Hotsprings, BC)

 

We had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Weekend, and one thing was that we got to spend it at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort in British Columbia filming Marisa and Marcos’ breathtaking autumn wedding in the mountains. We escaped the snow storm flying through Alberta and managed to get some beautiful outdoor footage before the rain started. We are also thankful that Marisa made the call to put tents up for the wedding ceremony because well, if rain on your wedding day means good luck, they are one lucky couple! The ceremony was still stunning and filled with so much love of all of the family and friends that made the trip for the weekend.

Kyla Brown Photography was an absolute breeze to work with and did such an incredible job scouting locations for the bride and groom’s forest photo shoot. We cannot wait to see how the photos turn out!

We are excited to get started on the final product and include some of those absolutely hilarious speeches done at the reception, but for now, here is the Same Day Edit! Congratulations!!!

Ruby and Fitz – Wedding Video Highlights

 

Ruby + Fitz had a beautiful wedding day at the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel. This is the full highlight video that I tried to tie together using lots of audio from the ceremony itself as that was an important part of the day for these two families. Ruby and Fitz are a really sweet couple and their love for each other and their family and friends clearly shows through.

Big thanks to photographer Sharon Litchfield for being great to work with (as usual) and helping us get some fabulous shots during the photoshoot with her posing and location choices.

Erin + Matt – Calgary Wedding Video

 

This highlight video was a fun one to work on. There were so many great speeches at the reception at Pinebrook Golf & Country Club that really helped to tell the story of this beautiful bride and groom. And the sunset cocktail hour and gourmet ice pops by Family Freezed just put smiles on everyone’s faces, including ours!
Christy D. Swanberg’s Photography gave the couple some great advice before their big day that they really took to heart! You will hear her advice at the beginning of this film and it is some that every couple should consider on their wedding day. She also took us to some great locations for the photo shoot, some via golf cart for the sunset, and was great to work with!

The stylings of the bridal party on the day were a huge thanks to Mira Pucci Maquillage and Tux N Tulle Beauty Bar. You’ll also see a lot of the had work that was put in by Enriched Events and Whippt Desserts & Catering.
So thank you Erin and Matt for letting us be a part of your special day. Congratulations!

Stephanie + Michael – Calgary Wedding Video Teaser

 

Hands down, this has got to be one of the most emotional days we’ve ever been a part of. Laughter. Tears. Puppies. More tears. Did I mention the puppies?

The DeWinton hall (just south of Calgary) provided a beautiful venue for both the couple’s ceremony and reception. We cannot wait to get started on their full highlight video. So many kind, heartfelt, and touching words were shared throughout the day that it will definitely be a video you will need that box of tissues for. Until then, enjoy this little teaser from September long weekend.

Congratulations Stephanie and Michael and thank you SO much for letting us be a part of this absolutely incredible day in your lives.

Peter + Anita – Same Day Edit

After a summer FILLED with Same Day Edits, this one wraps them up for awhile and we could not be happier to share it with you!

The day started off with some of the usual games before the tea ceremony. I don’t remember how many times the boys had to do the seaweed pass, but let’s just say that those boys got pretty close pretty fast and I think the wind might’ve played a role in that.

Peter and Anita held their ceremony in a theatre at the Art Gallery of Alberta and the stunning architecture of the building allowed us to capture one of the most beautiful first looks ever!! The anticipation that builds when both the bride and groom are in the frame but unable to see each other because of the grand staircase just gave the start of this wedding film such a cinematic feel. Peter and Anita also managed to get every person who attended the wedding into one group photo after the ceremony. This really goes to show how important it was to them to have their closest family and friends there to celebrate.

We cannot wait to see what Dianna Man Photography (http://www.diannaman.com/#!/HOME) managed to capture throughout the day and cannot wait to get working on this couple’s full wedding film.

Congratulations Peter and Anita!

Sheldon + Sukhi – Extended Highlight Video

Here at Ring Tail Films, we do a LOT of Indian Weddings! We love spending the week getting to know these families and are privileged enough to get to celebrate with them.

Sheldon and Sukhi’s wedding in May started our year off with a bang (possibly because it included confetti cannons and indoor fireworks at the reception)!

Jeff + Jessica – Wedding Video – Same Day Edit

 

This Same Day Edit is filled with the perfect mix of goofy and sentimental moments. We cannot wait to get started on the full highlight video with sound bites from the reception! We couldn’t help but laugh at some of the stories being told and we can’t wait to share that with all of you!

Both Jessica and Jeff’s vows were beautifully written and delivered in front of their closest family and friends at the Winspear Centre downtown Edmonton (those who made it, of course, despite the many road closures for the parade happening down the street at the exact same time — insert the behind the scenes video of two wedding videographers running 5 blocks carrying all of their gear through a parade to make it to the ceremony on time here).

Again we worked with a fabulous photographer, Barbara Rahal Photography, who captured this couple’s special day alongside us.

Keep an eye out for the full highlight video which will also feature decor by J’Adore Design and Events.

Congratulations Jessica and Jeff!

Tina + Satinder – Same Day Edit

 

It took us a while to get this video uploaded after our office was struck by lightning and we lost internet for a few days. But back up and running now! Take a look back at the Sikh wedding video of Tina and Satinder that we filmed over the long weekend in Edmonton.

I don’t think I’ve ever worked with such a laid back couple, especially at an Indian wedding. A month before the wedding we sat down to talk times and locations for video…and the events themselves were yet to be finalised! It all came together in time however, and you would never have known on the actual day…and the great thing about a relaxed attitude is they were really able to have fun and enjoy the whole wedding, which really shows in the video.

Thanks to Ferdinand from FM Photo Studios who was awesome to work with and was just as relaxed and non-stressed as Tina and Satinder!

Celia + Simon – Same Day Edit

 

Here comes another one! Edmonton. Beautiful summer day. Wedding. Same Day Edit. Enough said? No? Ok so here’s a few more details from the day.

Celia and Simon started off their days downtown hoping that the thunderstorms that have been constant in Alberta this summer wouldn’t dampen their outdoor wedding ceremony that afternoon and things couldn’t have worked out more perfectly. Blushed Beaute did the make-up and hair for the lovely ladies and the boys.. well.. they did it all by themselves. It always amazes me what the bridesmaids put the groomsmen through to get the bride in their tea ceremony games but these boys were such great sports and it made for some hilarious footage!

Celia and Simon wrote some heartfelt vows and picked a beautiful location at the Magrath Mansion for an outdoor ceremony. It was a day filled with fun, laughter, love and a pretty crazy reception party!  Big thanks to Corrina Walker Photography who was awesome to work with again (second time this year!). Some of the gorgeous posed shots in our video are all thanks to her.

This one is a good one, so make sure to check it out!

Ruby + Fitz – Same Day Edit

 

Yes that’s right folks, another Same Day Edit. Definitely seems to be a bit of a trend at this years weddings. Not that I’m complaining…I think it’s a fantastic idea and I love doing them. They always get such a great reception at the reception (yes, that sentence does make sense!) and it’s an awesome way for the couple to look back at what happened as their wedding day draws to a close because it all goes by pretty quickly. It’s also nice for them to see what went on in the morning at the other person’s house as they are getting ready. I particularly liked the rooms at the Rennaisance Hotel…a great place to get ready..so bright with funky furniture and huge windows.

Ruby and Fitz were such a cute couple together…even during the course of just one day you can see how right they are for each other.

Cocktails and Details (who also did Jamie + Harman’s wedding) provided ‘Day Of’ planning services, and Sharon Litchfield was the photographer. I generally have a couple of weddings a year with Sharon and it’s always interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes in her photo shoots to get the amazing shots that she gets.

Chelsea + Jon – Canmore Wedding Sneak Peek

 

We’ve done so many Same Day Edits lately it seemed weird to not do one…so here’s a very short ‘Sneak Peak’ teaser video instead for Chelsea + Jon Pollock and their beautiful Canmore wedding on Sunday. Very impressed with how well behaved the dogs were for the ceremony and photoshoot…wow! Silvertip Golf Course was the location for both the wedding ceremony and the reception, and the Rocky Mountains made for a stunning backdrop as usual. I did Jon’s brother’s wedding a few years ago and it’s always nice to see the same famliy members and see how things are progressing. Thanks for the referral Jessica and Justin!

Man I love mountain weddings…they feel like a destination wedding. If you’re getting married in Canmore, Banff or Lake Louise make sure you give us a shout.

It was nice to finally get to meet and work with Corinna Walker who was the photographer for the day.

We believe these beautiful wedding stories show that we’re the best producer of Calgary wedding videos and Edmonton wedding videos available.  We reflect your wedding day as the beautiful story that it is!
