Look at this venue! I think this is about a nice a setting that you could imagine and could definitely hit a top 5 list for best back yard weddings of all time. Perched on the shores of the beautiful Salt Spring Island Jennifer and Alex exchanged their vows in front of friends and family before dancing into the night backed by the amazing Side One band.
We were put in touch with Jennifer and Alex by Barb from French Kiss Events. She had seen a few of our Wedding Films and thought we would make a great match for this wedding. One of the best aspects of a back yard wedding is that everything happens in one place. We get to be around all the vendors as they set up whilst filming a bride and groom get ready at the same time. I can’t write this post without giving kudos to Barb and her team for pulling such an elaborate occasion together, especially since all the vendors came over from the mainland. Along with Verbena Floral Design and White Event Studio they were able to style and decorate the event with class and style. I would also be remiss of me to not mention Amy and Eric McVey who photographed the wedding. These guys were such a pleasure to work with and we can’t wait to see what magic they’ve created.
Of course, working with amazing vendors at a beautiful location is a real privilege but the reality is that a wedding always comes down to the couple. Luckily we were fortunate enough to film two very easy going individuals who together form a power couple of adventure and success. As mentioned early in the film, Jennifer and Alex are loved by so many people and that is why they flew from all over the world to attend their big day. We feel lucky to have had a glimpse into their lives to see why.
