On Saturday, June 8th, 2013, we filmed Christina and Vova's wedding in Toronto. It was interesting to see two families with strong traditions come together on such a beautiful occasion and celebrating the love of these two awesome people. It was a non-stop hustle day, with twists and turns that really showed just how positive Christina and Vova are; from two urgent mishaps with the bride's dress in the morning, to the unfortunate case of the groom's grandmother being hospitalized two days before the wedding (not to mention the limousine almost not starting after the midday photo session), it was incredible to see both C and V remain so positive, happy, and full and optimism while already being under so much stress and excitement on their wedding day.
This film was shot with two Canon EOS 60D's looking through a Tokina 11-16mm F2.8, Sigma 35mm F1.4, a Canon 100mm Macro F2.8L, and a Canon 135mm F2.0L, supported on a Manfrotto BHDV561-1 Video Monopod, and a Glidecam HD2000. Sound was yanked in using a pair of Rode VideoMic Pros, and a Sony ECM wired lav plugged into a ZOOM H1 and anchored to Vova during the ceremony with a Rycote Undercover, and hacked to sit with the podium mic at the reception (since the venue accidentally used a different mixing board as the one we were told they'd be using). Post and grading were performed entirely on FCPx.
