Jennifer And Sean’s Shangri-La Hotel Wedding
Love always shines through and Jennifer and Sean are living and loving proof. Nothing was going to stop these two from getting married, not even Covid. They had waited so long to get married and planned their big day far in advance but sadly had to reduce the guest list drastically.
Still, the wedding at the Shangri- La Hotel in downtown Toronto was one of the most beautiful, meaningful celebrations covered by our Toronto wedding videographer team this year. With Zoom set up for the ceremony, everyone could still attend part of the day, even if it was virtually. Guests attending were given custom-made face masks to wear when needed and social distancing was practiced.
Sean’s gray suit was custom with the couple’s initials on the inside. He wore a rose buttonhole and looked smart in his wedding day attire.
The bridal party wore classic navy blue.
The lovely bride wore a stunning beaded dress with a long train and veil. Her hair and makeup were modern and elegant. She looked gorgeous standing at the alter as Sean repeated his hand-written vows. The ceremony was decorated with a full floral archway with soft pink and white flowers. Set against the backdrop of the cityscape, it was a pretty sight.
Sean thanked his bride for her unconditional love and said he was right where he wanted to be. Jennifer said she couldn’t wait to find out what adventures lay ahead for their life together. Their personal vows were very touching and heartfelt. After the ring exchange, the officiant announced them man and wife and they kissed.
Since the downtown shangrila hotel wedding was a micro wedding, the reception was in the same room as the ceremony. The room was chosen for its beauty, including the intricate Asian floral design on the flooring and huge glass windows overlooking the city. A long table with a backdrop of fairy lights created an intimate mood for the dinner and celebrations. The archway remained in place and the dance floor was now where the guests were seated for the ceremony. Everyone danced together after the couple had their romantic first dance as newlyweds.
The couple knew each other since grade 12 and met up again at university and started dating.
Jennifer says the proposal was romantic and exciting.
“He asked for my parent’s blessing, then placed the ring in an oyster and glued the shells back together. During dinner, he wanted to be filmed to show off his shucking skills. It was a sweet surprise.”
We hope you loved watching the highlights video from this micro wedding in Toronto as much as we loved creating it. The drone footage we captured for this wedding included urban shots of downtown Toronto. Our clients are always big fans of the drone because of the inspiring high-end effect it gives the video.
