Mac and I were blindly excited about this wedding. I say blindly because we had never officially met the couple, and it was all the way in Winnipeg so we were definitely unfamiliar with the area. We love travel weddings though, and were confident that we would love this couple, just because. We met Michelle and Jamie the night before their wedding (thanks again for making time for us on probably your busiest pre-wedding day!) and as we expected, loved them. It was almost too easy to talk to them and we were extra excited about the wedding afterwards.
Next morning, wedding day. Weather: heaviest rain I’ve ever seen in my life. Not exaggerating. Take the rainiest day in Vancouver and then turn every Vancouver raindrop into a shot glass full of water and that was this Winnipeg rain. Luckily, this rain did something Vancouver rain never does – it stopped! And it was nice a sunny just in time for the ceremony.
Backing up a bit, Michelle and Jamie wrote each other letters to be read at before the ceremony. I almost lost it when Michelle read hers from Jamie – it was so sweet and the way she read it… you’ll just have to watch it and see.
Beautiful couple, beautiful ceremony, be-a-u-tiful reception. Fairy tale wedding if ever I’ve seen one.
Thank you Michelle and Jamie for allowing us to capture your wedding day. You are such a lovely couple and your wedding was perfect. Congratulations!
We had the pleasure of getting to work with the fantastic team at Soirée Event Planning – You ladies are incredible! We hope to work with you again soon!

In the past when we’ve had to travel for weddings I’ve always been a little bummed out that I can’t fit our 4 ft glidetrack in our luggage. Sliders are such a great tool and when we found out we’d be going to Winnipeg a few times this season, I knew it was time to get a new slider. We ended up purchasing the Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly Traveler. This slider is incredible. The Glidetrack is definitely a good tool, but after using it for a couple years we’ve noticed it’s flaws and have been itching to upgrade. The Pocket Dolly is an absolute Joy to use. Incredibly smooth, durable, light, and only 26 inches long. Some may find the short track to be a down side but usually we only use about 2 feet for sliding shots. It’s definitely a worth while trade when you consider how much more portable the Pocket Dolly is. If you’re interested go check out kesslercrane.com – Loads of quality filmmaking tools.
