Giovanna & Joe // Highlights Film // Hart House, Burnaby BC

We were so spoilt by the first weekend of October here in Vancouver. Not only did we have the most beautiful weekend but we were also very fortunate to film two of our favourite weddings of the year. Gi and Joe chose to get married at Hart House (if you’ve read our previous blog posts you’ll know its a top-5-for-sure location for us), they picked Whitney Lane and her husband Kal to photograph (absolutely one of our first choice photography teams to work with), had Wedding Design Studio provide decor (you’ll see plenty of them in our films, and for good reason) and the lovely Paige Petriw took care of the co-ordination. In short, it was one of those everything-coming-together type of weddings. The best thing was that we got to do a Same Day Edit! I don’t know why but I love the pressure of Same Day Edits (SDE’s), maybe it comes from my days editing sports highlights in Sydney or the crazy tight deadlines of my BBC News days, but having the team on site, throwing (not literally) footage at me throughout the day, frantically editing, gulping away at what ever caffein is within arms reach and finally hitting the “export” button just in time really gives me a buzz. Of course the best part was seeing the faces of Gi,  Joe and their guests as they were able to re-live so many moments of the day, especially one filled with so much colour, beauty and wonderful moments.
