LE BELVEDERE OTTAWA CLIFFSIDE WEDDING FILM, CANADA

HOW DID YOU MEET?

Marco and I met through mutual friends.  He had known my best friend for many years but I had no idea she had this amazing, single guy in her circle!  We initially saw each other’s pictures on Instagram (over six years!  Was Instagram even a thing back then? 😉 ) and then met in person.  He asked me out on a date and the proceeded to sweep me off my feet in the coming weeks.

TELL ME ABOUT THE PROPOSAL?

It was Italy, October 2016 and unseasonably cold.  Marco took me up to the piazzale michelangelo in Florence at night time and proposed to me away from any other people.  It was magical and we cried and laughed and kissed and hugged.  Then he told me to turn my ring around so we wouldn’t get mugged on our way back down through the wooded walking path!

WHY DID YOU WANT A FILM OF YOUR BELVÉDÈRE OTTAWA, CANADA?

Filming our wedding was a no brainer and my number two must have (number one would have to be the dress 😉 ).  Marco took a little more convincing, however, everyone we spoke to that didn’t have their wedding filmed, said it was their number one regret.  I cannot tell you the outpour of pure happiness we felt (tears, smiles, laughter and more) when we got to watch our wedding video for the first time.  We had to stop it several times because Laurent just captured it so perfectly, we needed to pull ourselves together!  In the coming days we surprised our family with it when they were all over for a special brunch, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
I love that we can ALWAYS look back on our day this way.  Photos are one thing, and needed, but nothing captures the day like a video.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE US TO CREATE YOUR BELVÉDÈRE OTTAWA WEDDING VIDEO?

We chose Laurent because of the work he produces at first, but after meeting him (via Skype, since we live in different cities), I knew he was the perfect fit.  He’s calm and ‘behind-the-scenes’ demeanour are exactly what you want for your wedding day.  Never once did Laurent add stress to the day, he simply captured it as it unfolded and ensured he got all the shots he knew we would want because our communication was so open before the big day.

I’ll never forget when Laurent arrived at our house the morning of the wedding, and it was all us girls getting ready.  He came upstairs to see me, and I was getting my hair done, and he was so sweet and easy to connect with.  Our Photographer, who had never met him, said he was a dream to work with too.  He truly added so much to our day and just spending the day with him was enjoyable, on top of the amazing video he created for us!

WHAT EXPERIENCE DO YOU WANT TO GIVE YOUR GUESTS AT BELVÉDÈRE OTTAWA, CANADA?

A party!  In the months leading up to the wedding, we kept telling our friends and family that we just wanted a huge party.  We love to host in our home, and this would be our biggest hosted event yet and we just wanted everyone to have a really good time.  Seeing our guests laughing, dancing and enjoying themselves on our big day and then later in our wedding video, was the best thing we could have asked for!
