Rimrock Resort Winter Wedding

February 02, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

With Winter in full swing in the mountains a great weekend wedding was about to happen. Greg & Stephanie decided to make Banff the destination of choice. The location they selected to have the wedding was the Rimrock Resort Hotel right next to the world famous upper Hot Springs in Banff. I have a special fondness of the hotel because I was right there on opening day back in August of 1993. I feel a sense of ownership that well lets say makes me proud I was part of an opening team. I left the Rimrock in 2002 after being the Chef Concierge and managing the guest services Bellman, Doorman , Valet and Concierge. It was a tough decision but this thing called Digital video was calling my name. And thats how it all started. Sometimes people don't know my background and thats ok, but I always tell people listen to others as their experience and knowledge may be more than your own. 

Any how back to my great Saturday with Greg and Stephanie. This couple without going into too much detail were totally relaxed and ready to have a great day. They had all the people that they loved around them. One of the special things they did was get photographs at the Banff Firehall. Greg is a firefighter up in the Edmonton area and Stephanie a nurse ( hence how they met was on the job ). A couple of other venues such as Vermillion lakes , Fenland trail and a stop at the St. James Gate Irish pub for a quick cheers and break before the reception back at the hotel. The evening went great with MC couple that were fun and kept the speeches moving right through dinner.

later the next day I got a text from Greg   " we wanted to thank you immensely for everything on Saturday. We couldn't have asked for a more dedicated and phenomenal videographer. You helped make the day run smooth and helped find us the best locations"

Well now I was floored with that response and they hadn't even seen their highlight yet!

I edited the footage that same Sunday and Monday ( the job is not done at the event, the work begins in the edit) I finally at 12:45am Tuesday morning I had the Highlight complete and sent Greg a note to watch the Highlight together with Stephanie.

Today I got another message from Greg " We got it! Steph has been watching it non stop since I told her. She absolutely floored by it ( in a great way) Neither of us could have hoped for anything better. you were awesome to work with and have a killer product. Thank you soo much! Greg & Steph "

Well that made my day and I don't think twice of why I do what I do.

Here is the highlight from Greg & Stephanie's day.
