Arif and Sukayna – CocoFilms – Montreal Wedding Video

The images were so beautiful, the warmth of the couple made editing a pleasure, and the lighting and colour were inspiring. In fact, everything seemed almost too perfect.

Sue and Arif’s wedding unfolded in parts. The first two ceremonies were held on a Friday evening in Brossard, and they were definitely entertaining. Henna, gifts, old rituals, eggs crash over Arif, tiny feet run across the hall, stick dance. The whole evening was a rhythmic beat, as everything seemed to happen at the same time.

The amazing outfits, traditional dances and beautiful smiles continued on Saturday. As Arif and Sukayna walked across the cobble-stoned streets of Old Montreal, their whole morning kept flashing back in my mind. I really love the silhouette images of Sukayna’s friends and family circling coins over her head. The house was crowded and the mood was rich. Arif’s morning preparations were also great to film. Water runs into the sink and Arif washes up. How can we not add that (in the edit) after a syrup and egg drenched sequence? It worked out a little too well.

There really was so much going on between the two days that putting everything together in an aesthetically rich fun-to-watch five minute video required quite a bit of thought. But we think finally got it and would love to hear your thoughts.

Back To You – CocoFilms – Montreal Wedding Video

One of the first things we noticed when we walked into Ilona and Felice’s Laval condo, to film the casual session, was a warm glow radiating through eight-or-so large windows in the living room. It hugged their silhouettes as they strutted across the floor and it was enriching, inspiring and natural. Hands clutched, bodies pressed close together…Now, I know finally, I’ve never been alone. We immediately knew that we would  incorporate that scene into the Theatrical Short Movie. It had certain symbolic depth, a beautiful hidden a layer we were immediately drawn to. We loved the idea that this whole day was an emotional melody, a dance.

There were a lot of  amazing elements to Ilona and Felice’s wedding. As you watch the clip, I think you can get a sense of how much work and love was put into this wedding. And, I hope you can also see how much work and love was put into this video. Please feel free to comment, we’d love to hear from you.

Horses, cattle, open sky, a newly constructed chalet hidden behind ancient trees, lost in a modern tale of love, light and likely paths. I know that sounds a little abstract, but that is something like the way I felt as we made our way up the unpaved road to begin filming Séverine’s morning preparations. As a city guy, I can’t help but be inspired by remote country hideouts, and as a creative old soul, I can’t escape the abstract beauty in personal stories. Severine and Jean-Nicolas’ story was oozing with beauty.  We did our best to capturing some of that in this short clip and I think we were fairly successful .

Cynthia and Dominic’s wedding day was an intimate, classy, and rich experience. One thing that really stuck out with me was that the bride actually walked to the chapel. I haven’t seen that before and it was really beautiful. The church was at the corner of Graham Blvd., in the Town of Mount Royal. As we were all following the bride to the alter, I could hear certain family members signing, “Going To The Chapel Of Love By: The Dixie Cups.” Really set the mood. Another thing that got imprinted in my memory, forever, and I’m really glad I caught it on camera, was the bond between these two adorable kids in the image on the right. We focused on them quite a bit on the Short Theatrical Movie, but we also included clips of them here in this trailer. Watch and please feel free to leave a comment.

Jessica and Jackson – Montreal Wedding Videography – Cocofilms.ca

From really early in the morning we all knew how this video would turn out. It’s not everyday that we see a groom with his groomsmen march out of their hotel room to woof down a few hot dogs at the Orange Julep. It really was beautiful. And I’m not just saying this because the crew also got to chow down. ; )  We fundamentally believe that anything out of the ordinary helps personalize events and makes them more memorable.

After about an hour with Jackson and the crew, we set of to meet Jessica at her parents’ place. The house was packed with friends and relatives, overflowing with great energy and full of interesting details. What else can a wedding videographer ask for? Well, there might be one more thing. As wedding filmmakers, we are always looking for the beauty and uniqueness in every couple’s connection, their story. It’s always there and often revealed in interesting ways. In a smile, a caress, a look. Jessica and Jackson made that really easy to spot. If you watch the video, I think you will see how much we enjoyed filming and editing this one.  Thanks guys!

Guljan and Alexandre – Montreal Wedding Video

Armed with our DSLRs and curious eyes, we arrived at Guljan and Alex’s pad early Saturday morning to find gorgeous henna, an adorable cat and an amazing view. Great way to start a session, for sure. We had already met with Guljan and Alex and we knew quite a bit about what we could expect and we were excited to be filming their wedding, but when the wedding day comes, we are almost always taken by the unexpected. We’ve been filming weddings in Montreal for about 5 years, but this was the first time we have been lucky enough to film a Pakistani wedding. As you can expect, there were a few pleasant surprises. Filming a Pakistani wedding we thought was inspiring enough, but then Guljan started to put together her wedding dress and Alex pulled out his guitar. Amazing!

So what makes your wedding day? Is it the dress? The flowers? The ceremony? How about all of the above. Throw in a beautiful sky, sprinkling water and an ecstatic little kid wetting herself and you have the makings of beautiful wedding video. Details, details, and more details. That’s what life is about and that is what we try to capture when filming one of the most transformational day’s in your life.
