This was our second time filming at one of our favourite venues – Le Belvedere in Wakefield Quebec. You can’t beat an all-in-one venue, especially not one with the view in Wakefield. They are constantly making upgrades and improvements, the staff is beyond friendly. I cannot say enough good things about this place and I couldn’t imagine planning a wedding in Ottawa without seeing what Le Belvedere has to offer.

We are very lucky that we often get to film weddings with a unique mix of cultures. Michelle and Alex brought flavours of Spanish, French, English and Italian backgrounds which made for an emotional day, with amazing food and a packed dance floor.

I first met with Michelle and her mother before the wedding and her mother looked at me closely and told me how important a wedding video is to her. I asked something about her own wedding video and she told me about many years ago she had hired a videographer for her wedding and months after the wedding she received the footage. The footage however was not a wedding video but instead mixed footage of the backside of women who had attended the wedding.
