"The Rock Of New York" - Inspiring New York Wedding @ Battery Gardens

New York City compels you to look skyward, and in this city of heroes, we definitely look up to the brave men and women in uniform who keep us safe and sound. When we got the call from one of New York's finest to create his dream wedding video, we jumped on the first plane (well not literally, this was still many months before the wedding, we wanted to though). NYC has the best people, and once we met Amy and Tony in person, we knew we were in good hands, and vice versa.

It was really cool to drive around New York with a bunch of police officers on wedding day. We could park anywhere, and there were body armors in the trunk, just in case duty called. It was rainy, windy, cloudy and sunny all on the same day, but through the winter chill we could always feel the love and tenderness between Amy and Tony. A few warming breaks allowed us to move between Conrad Hotel, Oculus, and Battery Gardens, where the reception was held within sight of the Statue of Liberty. It was an amazing day, so let's go for one more drive around the Big Apple!

"Memories of My First Love" - An Emotional Wedding Story Like No Other, Swan E Set Bay

You have never seen a wedding trailer like this, so get ready for some goosebumps, we did! 17 years as first loves (10 years in secret), overcoming a cultural divide that is almost as insurmountable as their determination, S&A might as well have been Romeo and Juliet, and you'll have to be made of steel to not be moved by their emotional and romantic story!

Having two complete ceremonies and receptions is unusual even for us, and this would have normally been a huge editing challenge, but S&A came to us with a vision as good as any movie script (inspired by "Arrival" no less), and lent their hidden voice over talent to create an unforgettable backdrop. Normally our highlight wedding videos are quite complete, but this one definitely resembles an actual movie trailer, where only snippets are seen from the full film. Maybe that's the best, because our memories are just moments that form an experience, and we hope these moments will stay with you and inspire you.

"Haute Couture Hycroft" - Haute Couture Luxury Vancouver Hycroft Manor Wedding

Yes, this is a real wedding! Although it could have easily been a fashion commercial for Galia Lahav, as nobody wears the Elizabeth gown like our bride! Gloria came to us with a clear vision, a French themed wedding that is, in her very first email, ethereal, elegant, classic, and flamboyant. Now we are talking!

The magnificent Hycroft Manor in Vancouver could have easily come straight from the middle of Paris (and is a film location for Deadpool 2, you might be interested to know.) Adorned with some of the best designed wedding decor and flowers we've seen, joined by the family brought to tears at the Chinese Tea Ceremony, and with a dash of Korean flair both in the traditional outfits, and in the awesome father daughter Gangnam Style dance, Gloria and Zee had a wedding of dreams. Looking back at her first email, we have to say, it was exactly how she envisioned it!

Vancouver wedding venues: Hycroft Manor (ceremony, reception)

"Hi Jen and Frank,

Thank you for your fabulous work to create an emotional and beautiful video and to deliver great quality video with lovely description. I am more than happy that you guys listened to my request and reflected it in the video. The video definitely looks like a beautiful dress commercial, which I like! My husband and family played our highlight a million times (especially my mom!) last night. It is so amazing to see our wedding in motion and feels very different from seeing the photos. Also, thank you for the elegant music choice. It goes well with the whole atmosphere."

Classy Persian Wedding Video Vancouver Hycroft Manor - Negin & Omid

What is a wedding? We are used to seeing fancy ceremonies, vows and rituals, and extravagant receptions, but do you really need any of them to get married? Negin and Omid came to us with a simple idea, a wedding shoot that is just about two people in love, not events, ceremonies, not even spoken words, because, well because love is independent of all those things. It can exist just because two people want it to, simple, and brilliant.

Together we went to Hycroft Manor, one of the classiest buildings in Vancouver, and ended the day at Stanley Park, an urban oasis with a thousand different looks. Lots of weddings have taken place at both locations, but this one looks just as good as any of them. When a wedding is filled with love, you don't really need anything else.

Beautiful Vancouver Afghan Kurdish Wedding Video - Lida & Mohammad

There are some people in the world that easily make friends with everyone, and there are some that you can trust your life to. Lida and Mohammad are both, and we could not have asked for a more easygoing and fun group than their wedding party. Hitting up downtown Vancouver spots with these guys is a breeze, even when a random passerby tried to steal everybody's sunglasses (no kidding)!

It wouldn't be an Afghan or Kurdish wedding without dancing, and this wedding is both! So get ready for some serious skills on the dance floor, from the bride and groom, to the talented groomsmen who are also in a band. We wish every wedding was as fun and relaxed as Lida and Mohammad's!

"This Side of the Pond" - Romantic Brock House Wedding Videography Vancouver

The value of a wedding video is only truly apparent after the wedding. When in doubt, we always ask, if you could have seen your grandma walk down the aisle one more time, would you rather have that in photos, or high quality film? The answer is universally film, and that is how we approach our work, we are creating lasting family heirlooms for the future.

When Christina and Jamie met us, they already knew this. Jamie is extremely close to his grandparents in the UK, and due to health reasons they wouldn't make it to the wedding in Vancouver. This is going to be their front row seat to their boy's special day. We also found out that Christina's mom had recently passed away, and made it our mission to include her presence in the video. It was an emotional but also fun and romantic day, from the epic cliffs of the Pacific Ocean (hello, drone) to the beautiful reception at picture-perfect Brock House Restaurant. We hope Jamie's grandparents will feel they are right there with us, every step of the way!

Vancouver wedding venues: Brock House Restaurant

Thank you guys so much for doing such a phenomenal job on our highlight video! The day was such a whirlwind and it's so nice to watch and remember it all and also to see shots that we didn't even know you captured. Although we both didn't expect to be climbing a giant rock that day, it was totally worth it as it all looks amazing! You made it come together so well, even keeping the part when Jamie slid down the rock and all of our hearts stopped - we didn't think we would see that in the final cut but the way you edited really made it work! You guys are truly exceptional in what you do and we love our video, thanks again!

"Like the Wings of a Dragonfly" - Vancouver Persian Turkish Wedding, Pan Pacific Hotel

Yeh another first for VanWeddings, our first Turkish wedding! And to make it extra special, Jila and Ali's wedding takes place at the always gorgeous Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel. How much do we like Pan Pacific? We spent the entire sunny day inside, no park shoot, nothing outside. When we see something amazing right there, we just do it!

We are pretty sure Jila and Ali are not professional dancers, but it was hard to believe. From the practice in the empty ballroom, to the real first dance in front of everybody, these two did not miss a beat, and a great first dance always makes for awesome footage. Combine it with the elaborate Azari dance performance, and voila, we have a stylish, classy, and beautiful Turkish wedding video!

"Santa Fe to Forever" - Chic American Afghan Fusion Wedding, New Mexico

After a few days in the blistering Albuquerque sun, it was a most pleasant surprise when we drove up to Santa Fe for Sadaf and Jason's wedding. Somehow the clouds had appeared in the most dramatic fashion to cool everyone down, and pick up Sadaf's incredible long wedding veil in ways we couldn't imagine. And best of all, the sun peeked through the sky and gave us the best light we'd ever seen for any photo video session. Seriously, go check out their photos on our website, Facebook, and Instagram @vanweddings. It was unreal!

It is so much more fun with the right couple, and we hit it off with S&J the minute we started. You can tell how much fun we had by the energy, the amount of smiles, or the impromptu mannequin challenge for the guys - we don't usually do campy things but we make exceptions! The ceremony was both unique and inclusive, with both a minister and the Koran, and mixing Christian and Muslim verses, truly reflecting the mixed Afghan and American heritage of Sadaf and Jason. Thank you for the amazing day S&J!

"Dearest Jen & Frank,

Wow, talk about work of perfection!!! Jason and I are speechless, and full with tears of joy. (We keep watching it over and over, can't get enough) This is just so amazing, AMAZING!

It was so wonderful to relive those moments. We are forever grateful Jen and Frank, for your efforts and for the creation of such a wonderful masterpiece! So happy to have had you join, as part of our wedding squad.

We felt so blessed that after many hours of playful photography Jason and I felt like you all were part of our little family but we would have it no other way. We are truly looking forward to the opportunity to be graced with your services in the near future so that you can create another one our your masterpieces."

"Three is Forever" - Happy Upbeat Vancouver Chinese Wedding Drone Video - Swan E Set

Fiona and Tim had a furry matchmaker, a loveable dog with the very appropriate name of Lucky. Lucky was the one who physically delivered the engagement ring for their proposal! What better way to start the Same Day Edit wedding video than to re-create that magical moment! They say in Hollywood it's hardest to work with children and pets, well let's just say we ended up with a wet dog and a wet ring box, but everyone had a ton of fun!

The wedding was at the always fairy tale venue of Swan E Set Bay, a place with so many beautiful angles for our camera, especially the flying one on the drone. We always try to do something different and creative each time, even at the same venue, so it felt great to pull off some never-before-seen shots. Oh and if you need inspiration for an awesome reception first dance, Fiona and Tim pulled out one of the best we've seen! Thank you F&T&L for the amazing experience, and showing us that everything is more fun with your pet!

"Supercharged in Indy" - Lamborghini Supercar Indian Wedding, Indianapolis, Indiana

The moment we landed in Indianapolis airport, Formula One race cars were literally everywhere, reminding us of the auto racing heritage of America's crossroads, and home of the Indy 500. Still, we were absolutely floored when the groom Navjot showed up in his own Lamborghini! We knew right there, right then, that we would not leave until we got a ride in it... oh yeah, we had a big Punjabi wedding to shoot too!

We love international weddings for one main reason - the couples who take the time to find us and fly us all the way to their hometown are most appreciative of what we do. Jaspreet and Navjot were a pleasure to spend time with, and what an amazing time we had! Have you seen any wedding dancing harder? (DJ Twinbeatz from Chicago FTW!) In the end we did get a fast and furious ride in the Lambo, through the corn fields, with a drone chasing behind, the American Midwest way! Enjoy this fast-paced and epic edit!

"Forever the First Time" - Romantic Drone Wedding Video - Swaneset, Vancouver

It's usually a very good Same Day Edit (SDE) when you see the bride mouth to herself repeatedly, "oh my god". With a 4pm ceremony and 8pm showtime, plus drone footage shot on the same day, it wasn't exactly easy, but it felt really satisfying to pull it off for Jasmine and Riley.

The tricky part was that we had never met J&R in person, although we had been speaking to the lovely Mother of Bride Lise. Without knowing their personalities, we kept several music tracks in reserve, waiting to feel it out before deciding. As the day unfolded, we were absolutely charmed by Jasmine, who somehow holds two paradoxical jobs working with special needs children and at a gun range, and Riley, who could easily be a poet model, just listen to his vows.

So in the end we cut a couple of tracks together to fit our charismatic couple. It's actually easy to do a Same Day Edit, just difficult to do an awesome one, and for J&R, we felt only the best would do!

"The Okanagan Perspective" - Unique Indian Wedding From Cawston, Kelowna, Penticton

It's hard to believe, but we had yet to shoot a wedding in the Okanagan, the beautiful interior of British Columbia, wine country, open pasture, big mountains, the works. Then one day, Ruby and Jay called us. Not only are they having a big Indian wedding in the Okanagan, but it stretches from the beautiful city of Kelowna, to the lakeside town of Penticton, to the tiny farm community of Cawston, population 973. It's no surprise that we jumped in with both feet!

While Ruby is born and raised in Cawston, Jay is an American from New Jersey. With this big change in scenary, it was remarkable how easily and quickly the two families came together, even with a little election year chatter about Donald Trump! From the friendly family orchard, to the spectacular Laughing Stock Vineyards by Okanagan Lake, to the unbelievable reception view from Kelowna's Hillcrest Farm, you will definitely fall in love with Ruby and Jay's unique Okanagan perspective.

"One More Time With Me" - Grad Party + Re-Wedding at Woodmark Hotel Seattle

Nafiseh and Marcus actually had their wedding three years ago. A lot has happened since then, including tragedies that no one should have to bear, but the love between Nafi and Marcus has always been the constant. That is one of the reasons Nafi brought us to the Woodmark Hotel, to where she got married, to relive, to rejoice.

The other reason, of course, is that Nafi is now a doctor! This ain't your average high school grad party! A crowning achievement in anyone's life, and especially so for someone who has gone through so much, we are so happy to see the newest physician celebrate with all the people who have supported and loved her. Congrats Nafi and Marcus, you absolutely deserve it!

"A Date at the Mayflower" - Spectacular Luxury Korean & Persian Wedding at Mayflower Hotel, Washington DC

What if a wedding was so spectacular, we felt like editing the same wedding twice? The thought hadn't cross our mind, but something changed when we walked into the historic Grand Ballroom at the luxurious Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC with Jacqueline and Arash. A stunningly classy venue with a beautifully elegant couple, it was almost too perfect!

The wedding day started at the Presidential Suite, seriously one of the most photogenic places for any bride, especially the gorgeous Jackie. We just had to match the awesome bridesmaid sequence with a unique groomsmen sequence on the 1920 themed floor (each floor in the Mayflower represents a different decade, take your pick!) This is a Korean and Persian fusion wedding, and you'll see the Persian wedding ceremony in the jaw-dropping Palm Court Ballroom, while Jackie saved her Korean wedding outfit for the reception. We won't give too much away, but you will see the best ever grand entrance for a reception here.

So what do we do with a luxury wedding that is simultaneously classy and fun? We did two parallel edits, each with emphasis on different parts of the day, and joined them together with one nifty cinematic sequence. Yes, we edited this wedding twice, and now you'll never watch another wedding video the same way again!

Washington DC wedding venues: Mayflower Hotel (Persian ceremony, reception)

"Thank you so much for the AMAZING video!!!!! It was so wonderful to take a look back at our big day since it was all such a blur. We kept saying I don't remember that while watching the video hahaha.

"Welcome to Paradise" - Arab & Indian Luxury Destination Wedding Cancun Mexico

17 years is a loooong time! For Aliyah and Nav, after dating for all these years, their Arab & Indian fusion destination wedding is a celebration of love in Marathonian proportions. Merging two cultural and religious backgrounds, and taking place in two different countries, it was no easy task to edit together Muslim and Sikh traditions from events in Canada and Mexico, and present everything by the reception in a Same Day Edit, in VanWeddings style, of course!

As applause, laughter, and tears greeted the final seconds of the SDE, we realized that our journey to that moment was not as Herculean as the one Aliyah and Nav took, but we could at least understand the immense joy of seeing the finish line emerge at the end of a Marathon. Here's to A&N, and many more 17 years to come!

We could not have done this without an all-star lineup of the best wedding vendors anywhere. Shout outs to Harumi at Harumi Signature Weddings & Events, DJ Khanvict at Decibel Entertainment, Denise Dinh makeup, Elvia at Hard Rock Cancun, Hyatt Ziva Cancun for the special shoot permission, and the voice of this film, the amazing Dr. Freedom and Leela who presided over the Sikh ceremony!

"Celebrate the Temporary" - EPIC & Romantic Denver Colorado Rockies Wedding

When we got the email from Megan, telling us about her wedding just outside the Rocky Mountains National Park in Denver, Colorado, we knew it was going to be special. But how special? That we wouldn't fully realize until after the wedding, until we were sifting through the footage and literally getting goosebumps!

It's hard to choose the best part of this wedding. There was the outdoor ceremony with unexpected Mr. Elk, a super epic desert drone shoot with the dramatic Red Rocks, the rustic and luxurious boutique resort of Della Terra on the gates of Rocky Mountain National Park, an old service rifle with a history, a loving family and funny friends, an inspiring speech from the favorite teacher, and the most adventurous and fun couple who would hike half an hour in cactus country with us for that one grand shot.

Simultaneously epic, romantic, funny, and emotional, we feel truly special being part of Megan and Kalen's wedding. When everything comes together, this is what it looks like, this is quintessential VanWeddings, and we hope you'll enjoy the next few minutes!

Denver, Colorado wedding venues: Della Terra Mountain Chateau at Estes Park (ceremony, reception)

"Am amazed and happy and tearful, wow!! We absolutely love it. I knew from the moment I saw my first video of yours that you are beyond talented and beyond unique. You create so much more than videos. You capture the most beautiful of moments and ensure you bring to video what was felt in person. Truly a talent and gift. We both are amazed and so very, very grateful.

We love the video. You captured so many moments and scenes and fwelings. It was so much more than just a recap of the wedding. (I love that you got my grandma saying hello! I can hear her now, "I put lotion in my hair."!!)

We really, truly had so much fun with you both. It was OUR honor to work with you and we do hope you take us up on our offer to stay with us if the need ever arises.

Kalen said, "ok, i admit, totally worth it!" after watching it.

And we LOVEEEEEEEE the ending outtake.

And we loved the writeup about our video. We just loved it all!!!

With tears, hugs, smiles, and happiness....thank you."

"Just A Feeling In NYC" - Uplifting New York City Wedding Video

As many times as we've been to New York City, it is still awe-inspiring when we turn skyward. Meeting Sally and Ming for the first time, just two days before their wedding, we were surprised to learn they were already married! In fact, they were doing this for their families, who wanted a big festive Chinese wedding reception - and we said, "no problem!"

As the wedding night was winding down, and we wrapped up atop the Wyndham Garden Chinatown at the Rooftop93 Bar (epic view of New York at night), we asked Sally and Ming if it was worth it to do the big wedding in the end. "Definitely!" was their answer, and ours too.

New York City wedding venues: Joy Luck Palace (reception)

"Hello Jen and Frank,

Happy Chinese New Year! Sally and I just watched the video highlight in HD and we absolutely love it. It was a pleasure working with you guys and we love our video.

Amazingly stunning bride - check. One of Vancouver's most beautiful wedding venues - check. Mustache wax and skull caps - check??? Yep, Sarish and Franky's wedding was like that, filled with heartwarming emotion, laugh-out-loud moments (best dad's speech ever!), and frigid rain that only added to the atmosphere of an amazing photo and video shoot. Of course, we love Swan-e-Set Bay Resort - truly one of Vancouver's most romantic wedding venues. With all these ingredients, this is not just a fusion Indian wedding, it's a unique mix of everything that makes Sarish and Franky's love so special, mustache jokes included.

"The Beat My Heart Skips" - Gorgeous Vancouver Chinese Wedding at Vancouver Club

Lost for words? We were too, when Lenka opened those double doors, and the light was at the perfect angle. OK, maybe Long wasn't particularly concerned with the light at the moment, but with seeing his super gorgeous soon-to-be-wife for the first time. Still, in the concrete and glass jungle of downtown Vancouver, we found amazing light everywhere, and when the day was ending, the sparklers came out for an unforgettable grand exit.

Amid all the glamour and beauty, we were most moved by how far family and friends had traveled to be here. When your wedding is also a reunion of old friends, it's just that much more special. Here it is, a fabulous wedding from the classy Vancouver Club.

"25 Years, Right on Time" - Bollywood Style Wedding Anniversary Featuring Salim Sulaiman @ Pacific Rim Hotel

There was a big secret hiding behind the curtains, a very big secret, and she knew nothing about it. 25 years ago, Tony and Rita had a small but lovely wedding in a community centre. 25 years later, a huge anniversary party at the luxurious Pacific Rim brings back family and friends like never before, and when the curtains reveal Rita's favourite band, Bollywood legends Salim Sulaiman, she is beside herself.

It's the best wedding anniversary we've seen, and though we could write all about it, why not experience it all over again, right here, right now, because even though Tony and Rita will surely have many more anniversaries, this is once in a lifetime, and we are honoured to be part of it.

"How Vancouver Found Style" - Fun Stylish Persian Wedding Video - Vancouver Club

Before Arash arrived from Sweden, Vancouver was a dark, rainy place, where people had no fun and no sense of fashion. Best reception speech one liner of the year, and so so true! Ever since we met Dominique and Arash, they have been dazzling us with their impeccable personal style, from the fashion show worthy engagement shoot, to the most beautiful wedding dress ever seen (Arash's words, and ours). Seriously, Gucci should hire them as consultants.

What impressed us most though, is how warm and fun D&A are. Their wedding is not just for themselves, but a grand party thrown for the benefit of family and friends. While Vancouver appreciates its new found sense of style, we really need Dominique and Arash to stay and brighten our day. Hip, stylish, and amazingly fun, here's a Persian wedding video like you've never seen before!

Vancouver wedding venues: Vancouver Club (Iranian wedding ceremony, reception)

"Dear Jen and Frank,

I know we weren't the typical bride and groom that pose and stand somewhat still. We were jumping up and down non stop and laughed at all times. Over the past two months we kept saying "there is no way our video will be perfect since we acted so crazy." And then today you surprised us! How you made this incredible, beautiful, romantic, fun, funny, every good word there is, video of us is beyond us.

Can't thank you enough, and to your question whether we like it or not? We ABSOLUTELY adore and love it! You brought out tears, and you know we are not criers. We are at home, and watching it over and over and over again.

The details, song selection, the captions, everything is perfect. You are simply amazing! Thank you over and over again!"

"Destiny From Long Ago" - Ultra Glamorous Luxury Persian Wedding Video - Ritz Carlton, Washington DC

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This probably explains why we had such a hard time editing Shadi and Armin's luxury wedding from the Ritz-Carlton in Washington DC. Even though it was just a one day Persian American wedding, the photogenic couple looked so ridiculously good for literally every second of the day, that we seriously had enough stunning shots to create five highlights!

Being the perfectionists we are, we always go through every second of footage and make sure the best shots are not missed. So here we were, sitting in the editor's chair, pulling our hair out, comparing every frame and going back and forth on every second. It was a process of reduction, like creating a sculpture from a block of granite. We cut and re-cut every frame until there was nothing left to take away. But at the end, we had in our hands a masterpiece!

Super luxurious, super glamorous, ladies and gentlemen, we think Shadi and Armin's wedding is perfection itself, something we hope this film will reflect. Shout out to the lovely crew in DC that made the day infinitely more fun, you know who you are, let's do it again soon!

As I'm watching your video, I'm having those wow moments I was hoping to have... I feel the passion you put into your work, it really shows! Thank You!"

"My Superman" - Most Romantic Chinese Wedding, Hart House

If you don't speak Mandarin, here is what the best man says near the beginning, "you are not just marrying someone who makes you happy and smile every day, but you are also marrying a man who will treasure you, who will always be by your side. I believe Jason will be to your life, like Superman. Whenever you need him, it doesn't matter where he is, he will always be right there when you call his name". Anyone who knows Jason, will agree that this happy-go-lucky guy is willing to do anything for loved ones, and after some wild days in his youth, he's settled down with the one true love, Effie.

Shot at the always beautiful Hart House in Burnaby, a Tudor-style mansion that perfectly fits the romantic mood for this Chinese wedding. All our best, Effie and Jason!

"No One On Earth" - Most Romantic Persian Wedding Ever, Shaughnessy Golf

We are fortunate to be based in the multi-cultural melting pot of Vancouver, and even more fortunate to have shot many different types of weddings. This has given us a sixth sense when shooting, so even though we don't speak Farsi, in the middle of Bahar and Shaya's Persian ceremony, we knew something special was being said. A follow-up email to the groom has given us the insight into perhaps the most romantic and poetic vows we've heard:

Commissioner's Poem: "See how in the middle of the drunken warm Summer, with flowers in hand, Spring is coming. With her hands in her partner's hands, the deservedly joyful and smiling bride is coming." *The commissioner's poem plays on the words Bahar and Shaya, which mean "Spring" and "Deserving/Worthy" respectively.

Bahar's Poem: "In addition, our bride enjoys putting her words to pen and paper. Bahar says 'you are the one who brings peace to my life. In my moments of weakness, you are my strength. In my moments of loneliness, you are my warmth and safety. Come with me and stay with me. I will be your Spring and garden. With each step and breath, I will be your partner."

Shaya's Words: "My dear Bahar, from the day when I asked for your hand under that tree, I have been counting the moments until this one when I can finally call you my wife. Like the season of Spring, you have brought love, beauty, and kindness into my life. I promise to take care of you until my last day. I love you sweetheart."

It's helpful to speak the language of the wedding couple, but it's just as important to understand the language of love, of human emotions, and to put in the effort to tell each wedding story to the fullest. We hope you will enjoy hearing the poetry as much as we did.

Living in Vancouver, we are used to rain, but on Emily and Eduardo's wedding day, it REALLY rained! Even under the covered patio of Hycroft Manor, the rain was coming in sideways, and everybody got wet. Thankfully, E&E are two super chilled people, and nothing could dampen their spirit. We also had the luxury of working in two of the most opulent interior spaces in Vancouver, the heritage Hycroft Manor for the ceremony, and the upscale and vintage Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

Through the magic of cinema, we even managed to summon some golden hour sunshine for our incredible couple (thanks Tom!) So don't miss the epic aerial drone shots later in the film, probably the best view of Hycroft Manor you'll see.

It was the perfect metaphor for Emily and Eduardo's marriage, because they will always see the rainbow after the rain, and here in Vancouver, that's a lot of rainbows!

"First Light" - Elegant & Modern Persian Indian Fusion Wedding, Swaneset

Naturally charismatic, unrelenting perfectionists, Sepy and Mony have taken a few days out of their busy lives to plan a first-rate wedding. Two weddings, actually. Sepy is Iranian and Mony is Indian, so here to tell a flawless story of their unique fusion wedding, is us.

The Sikh ceremony day at Akali Temple was showered by cleansing rain, and the Persian ceremony and reception day at Swan E Set was graced by some amazing light out of the clouds. Even though the two days and two traditions were different, it was in fact quite natural to tie them together in editing. It's like seeing the first light of the day, even the perfectionists in us would be pleased.

Vancouver wedding venues: Swaneset Bay Resort & Country Club (Persian wedding ceremony, reception) Akali Singh Sikh Temple (Indian wedding ceremony)

"Hello Jen and Frank,

Wow, this is literally why I picked you guys to begin with!!!! You guys do magic!! We love the short highlights it's absolutely a form of art what you guys do!!

"Parmneet" - Fun, Cinematic Indian Wedding Next Day Edit

*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*

"We all had so much fun at the shoot yesterday. Everyone was saying nobody ever goes into the water like that!" the excited bride told me at the reception, and I almost told her that nobody was ever crazy enough to agree to it.

Anyone who knows Rumneet and Parm would not be surprised, because these are two of the most easy-going, up-for-anything go getters, and their wedding party was just as adventurous. The result? One of the most memorable sequences we've shot, and just one of many in this fun and cinematic Next Day Edit wedding film. We are looking forward to the next Parmneet!

Vancouver wedding venues: Gurdwara Sahib Brookside (Sikh wedding ceremony), Aria Banquet Hall (reception), Crown Palace Banquet Hall (ladies night), Crystal At York (groom mayian)

"Second Best Day" - Luxury Destination Wedding - St Lucia

*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*

When two lawyers in Atlanta decided to create the ultimate luxury destination wedding, they chose the world-renowned Viceroy Sugar Beach Resort in stunning St Lucia, a filming location for "The Bachelor", and where Matt Damon renewed his marriage vows.

What impressed us the most though, wasn't the giant pitons flanking the beach, or Jenny and Ethan's even bigger trust in us to fly our cinematographers to almost the tip of South America for this occasion, but how incredible genuine and hospitable they were. From the long emails where they explained all the amenities available to us, to the never ending smiles even when rain threatened to take over the skies (it eventually did, as cinematic backdrops during the dance), we felt like their family by the end of the week, and nothing feels better than sending our friends from Atlanta a little memento from paradise. Cheers guys. Hope Bora Bora was just as epic!

Special thanks to Viceroy Sugar Beach for graciously giving our drone the exception for a quick flyby on the day. Drones are not allowed on the resort, so this may be the very last time you'll be able to see aerial video from here. Enjoy!

St Lucia wedding venues: Viceroy Sugar Beach Resort (ceremony, reception)

"Excellent choice of music! Amazing video edit! You have exceeded my expectations...that is a huge compliment coming from an extremely picky person! :)

Just like how I knew Ethan was the one when we first met, I knew that you were the cinematographer I was searching for the instant I watched one of your videos on YouTube. Ethan gave me the wedding of my gave me the wedding video of my dreams...I cannot be happier.

Thank you for the creative & amazing video."


"Hello Frank and Jen,

You guys did an amazing job on our video. Jenny and I and our family cannot stop watching it. I cannot get any work done because of it. This is dangerous because I'm going to be sitting there in court before the judge daydreaming about the video.

Jenny looks even more beautiful in the video. If Hollywood or a Hong Kong movie studio comes and asks her to be a star and she accepts and leaves me, then I will blame it on you Frank :)

Please come to Atlanta and hang out with us...would love to hang out with you again."

"Dear Shereen" - A Wedding Video to Make You Laugh & Cry

It's not just a letter exchange, or a loving sibling's speech, or childhood friends on a long distance relationship from Hong Kong to New Zealand to Canada. It's not just the traditions and cultures of a Chinese wedding, or the splendors of a waterfront reception in Vancouver, or even a tearful vow in front of the altar. It's all the love, the people, and everything else coming together on a singular day. These five minutes will make you smile, laugh, and cry. It's all the emotions of the wedding, the journey that takes us here, the relationships that make us human, and it all starts with two words.

Dear Shereen.

Vancouver wedding venues: Sutton Place Hotel (prep), Canadian Memorial United Church (ceremony), Brockhouse Restaurant (reception)

"Hey Jen and Frank!

We absolutely love the highlight video! We have watched it a few times on different days and have shared it with our family and friends. They love it too! You guys did an amazing job! Thank you!!"

Super Elegant Persian Wedding in San Francisco - Maryam & Naeim

We are super lucky that couples like Maryam and Naeim exist. Lucky that they have a super awesome wedding with loving family and friends, lucky that they love our style so much to rescue us from the rainy Vancouver winter, and fly us down to San Francisco's amazing Palm Event Center, where it was... only slightly rainy on the day! Not really a problem, because the Palm had a ton of ideal spots for filming, and when the clouds blinked we even got a rainbow! Most important of all, we are thankful that Maryam and Naeim have a deep appreciation for wedding cinematography, and are willing to give us the time and freedom to pull off the shots. Our best work comes from combined efforts of our couple and us, and here's a super elegant Persian wedding video for everyone to experience one splendid day in California.

San Francisco wedding venues: Palm Event Center in the Vineyard (Persian ceremony, reception)

"Dear Jen and Frank,

I wanted to write again and tell you just how much we are enjoying watching the highlight video. We have probably played it over and over more than a hundred times and we keep wanting to eat it all up and save every frame in our brains. We are overwhelmed with all the emotions from that day coming back to us, and new emotions forming because of your artistry and vision in picking the shots, the sounds, and the music.

You did an excellent job capturing all the important events, and featuring all the important people in this highlight. We loved seeing so many shots of my grandmother, and that all parents got a fair amount of video love.

Also, thank you so much for capturing and featuring the decorations. The sofreh, the cake, the flowers, the table decorations, all the beauty of Palm inside and outside... We spent so much time and energy designing the look of our wedding, and you showcased it so well in the highlight video.

I could go on and on but I will stop now. Again, thank you so much. We are very lucky and happy that you were part of our day."

"Eternal Oasis of Happiness" - Epic California Indian Wedding of Neesha & Kulvir

*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*

Once a year the sky opens up over the California desert, and this time it happened just minutes before our aerial drone was taking off. So with a smile on their faces, Neesha and Kulvir instead told our camera their story, while the thunder and lightning raged outside. After 10 years, the wedding was an inevitability, and no amount of meteorological phenomena was going to stop it, not even the grand storm that flooded the highway between Los Angeles and Bakersfield, and forced us to use the drone in the dark (the footage is ok after careful treatment in 4k).

With that out of the way, the rest of this epic wedding was simply, phenomenal. Neesha and Kulvir were super down-to-earth and always smiling even when things were running late - it's a big fat Indian wedding with a destroyed highway after all. The guests, some of which came from as far as India, were thrilled to see it all come together. DJ Hans blasted it. Cassandra from Fairy Godmother Events was the best wedding planner we had ever worked with on a destination wedding. And we were so happy to shoot at Hathaway Ranch, the biggest private estate we've seen with endless vineyard, and oil pumps right on the property! We'll stop gushing now - go and watch the best California wedding video you'll see!

"Tranquility" - Ultra Grand Pakistani Wedding Video, Mariam & Ahmed

*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*

At VanWeddings we shoot lots of grand and epic weddings, but it's extra special when there's a personal connection. We know Mariam's brother, who runs Decibel Entertainment, the best wedding DJ company in town. So when he asked us to shoot his only sister's wedding, we knew it was going to be a big production!

From the best wedding dance performances we've ever seen, to the blinding lights and confetti sprays on the dance floor, everything about Mariam and Ahmed's wedding was larger than life. But we also had quiet moments with just the two of them at their aerial drone shoot, a place of amazing beauty and tranquility, and the perfect reflection of the verse from the Quran about finding tranquility in your mate. Enjoy the best Pakistani wedding video we've done!

Vancouver wedding venues: Royal King Palace (Mehndi), UBC Botanical Garden (ceremony), Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (prep), Aria Banquet Hall (reception)

"Hi Jen and Frank!!!

When Ahmed and I first met you, we definitely knew that we wanted you two to be our videographers for the wedding and after looking at the highlight video we are so glad that we made that decision. Everything about the highlight video is beautiful and using Quran verse as the background sound was so refreshing and absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much for all the work you put in!! We'll recommend you to everyone in a heartbeat, you guys have to be my favorite wedding vendor I have worked with!

Thanks once again!! You guys are amazing!"

"Dreamscape in Vancouver" - Glamorous Afghan Wedding - Farnoosh & Ali

*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*

Sometimes, a wedding film doesn't have to look like a wedding film. This may surprise you, but Farnoosh and Ali are not professional actors or models, and this beautiful period drama is a real wedding video. Although the usual wedding video attempts storytelling through speech, the couple wanted to express themselves without ever talking, so we conveyed their emotions through careful direction, lighting, camera movement, and VanWeddings-grade editing.

Most importantly, we were given a generous amount of time to accomplish all the shots, which in itself is a luxury on wedding day. So thank you F&A for an unforgettable insight into the beautiful and luxurious world of a modern Afghan wedding!

Vancouver wedding venues: Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Wedgewood Hotel, La Perla Ballroom

Call it chemistry, call it magic, there is something between Bhavisha and Michael, and it just feels right. Now it's our duty to present this amazing connection between two exceptional souls. It will be easy to show what happened, the beautiful Hindu wedding and Chinese lion dance at Aria Banquet Hall speak for themselves. But it will not be easy to give this wedding just the right amount of story, style, and that VanWeddings magic. Judging by the amount of gasps and dropped jaws from the guests, this Next Day Edit highlight video has something special in it. Go ahead, have your breath taken away too!

Vancouver wedding venues: Aria Banquet Hall (Hindu wedding ceremony, reception)

"Hi Jen and Frank,

From New Zealand to Canada, the last time they almost met, this time they shall never part. Rupinder and Carter came to us with a love story made for a Hollywood film, and rare is a wedding with so many cinematic moments for us to indulge. So here is the beautiful tale of how a New Zealand boy came to meet an Indian Canadian girl at the unlikeliest of places, how Maori and Sikh traditions fused perfectly into an unforgettable week of celebrations, and how the world is both vast and small when fate decides to intervene. Be amazed.

Listen closely, and you can hear Chris' heart beats when he hugs Kimia at the first look. It's the most emotional meeting of two lovers we've ever seen, and it happened in the middle of the most beautiful Nitobe Japanese Garden. Kimia and Chris held both their civil and Persian wedding ceremonies outside at the picturesque Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver West, as the sun bathed family and friends in its warm glow. Romantic, intimate, heartwarming, words don't do this wedding justice, we hope the film will.

Love Beats Cancer - The Inspiring Wedding Story of Van & James

*This wedding video is the winner for Best Wedding Cinematographer / Videographer at the 2014 Professional BC Wedding Awards*

*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*

Eight months ago, James was attacked by a shark while at a local beach, which left a scar on his head. That was James' story. In reality, he underwent surgery for a brain tumor, and was looking at six months of chemotherapy. It was at that time that he planned to marry his girlfriend Van, just two weeks after his treatment, and they came to VanWeddings to tell their unique wedding story.

Needless to say, we went all out for this most inspiring couple, and they chose the most lovely Gulf Islands between Vancouver and Victoria to tie the knot, the superb Bodega Ridge Resort on Galiano Island to be exact. The wedding was more than just a ceremony, it was a celebration of life, and the triumph of love over cancer, and sharks.
