This past saturday I turned 23 years old. On Sunday I celebrated with my family by going to Five Guys Burgers and Fries (incredible), and also going to see Rango (awesome) at the Cineplex. The reason we celebrated on sunday is because on saturday, my fiancee and I had the honour of filming the wedding of Tanja and Tony. I can't say enough good things about this couple. One minute they can have you laughing and gasping for air and the next minute they can have you in tears. These two have such a remarkable story and it shows in their film.I first met Tanja a few months ago. We met over coffee and just chatted about life for a while. It was so cool to find out she works in the film and television industry and has for quire some time. She worked on the long running series Stargate among other projects. I was flattered to hear the reasons why she loved our work as she has a very critical eye. A few weeks later I met with Tony. I don't remember everything we talked about but I remember we laughed a lot. I love it when I meet with couples and we laugh, it's always a good sign. He then shared with me briefly a little bit of their story and I knew that this wedding was going to be emotional.
The wedding day couldn't have been more beautiful. The sun was out and everyone was excited. The ceremony was held at the incredible Holy Rosary Cathedral in Vancouver. The perfect setting for these two to share their vows. The reception was held at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The breathtaking view of the north shore was the perfect backdrop for dinner. The speeches began and as you'll see in the film, their wasn't a dry eye in the house. Erin and I were so honoured to be apart of their wedding day. Congrats Tanja and Tony!
