Shannon and Ryan met in an interesting way. The parents of the two actually introduced them as they worked at Carleton University and asked for there children’s assistance. It was from there the two began talking and went on there first date to Victoria Trattoria (Rip). When Ryan proposed he did it on a hike where Shannon apparently knew what was up.
A fall Aquatopia wedding film is perfect because you get the green house look but without the scorching heat of the summer mixed with just the natural problems of being in a green house with no AC. Shannon and Ryan met in an interesting way. The parents of the two actually introduced them as they worked at Carleton University and asked for there children’s assistance. It was from there the two began talking and went on there first date to Victoria Trattoria (Rip). When Ryan proposed he did it on a hike where Shannon apparently knew what was up.
After 6 years Shannon said yes and the rest is history. Shannon mentioned that Ryan is a big hugger and plays big guy at first. Its funny that she said that because the first half of the day I kept getting mean mugs on camera. Shannon and Ryan are a fun couple and you could really feel the love between the two famalies. Although this wedding was 2hrs behind at one point you would never be able to tell because the vibe was super relaxed the whole day.
My favorite part of this wedding video was the speeches. The best man in particular delivered a very touching speech that stuck with me. He said something about Ryan being that friend who says he’s going to be there and is. You could feel the genuine love between all of the friends and parents. Esthetically my favorite part about this wedding was the vibe of the venue, especially the reception area where all the dancing occurred. Being my second time here I have got know the audio guys at this venue and I can honestly say they are great at not just getting the party started but also keeping it going. I’ve been to a lot of weddings where the DJ’s never seem to read the crowd well. It’s usually a situation where you can tell that they are going off a playlist but these DJ’s seem to actually be into the music that they were playing. Aside from the music the lights are also amazing, most DJ’s have decent lights but this venue had a dedicated light guy that works right next to the DJ. With that said the two of them work in synch and it shows. The experience they give you is unmatched compared to any other wedding video I’ve been to. If you’re looking for a good party setting for your guest this is the spot to do it.
Thank you Shannon and Ryan for giving me the opportunity to be apart of your day. The friendship between you guys felt special and genuine and I felt privileged to share this special day with you. The last time I was at Aquatopia there were record heat waves outside and being in a greenhouse it was tough. If you have the option I would recommend having a Aquatopia wedding film and booking the venue in the fall as its nice and cool and the inside still looks beautiful.
