Earlier this summer I teamed up with the folks at Langdon Hall to create a video for their homepage (Note: it only appears in a desktop browser, not on mobile). The idea was to create a handful of shots to illustrate the experience of visiting Langdon, whether you’re staying overnight, getting a spa treatment, tasting wine with one of their sommeliers, or eating a gourmet meal prepared by chef Jason Bangerter. The images have very little, or at least very simple staging, with zero camera movement, meant to feel almost like still photos. The mildly OCD part of my brain that loves the art direction of Kubrick and Wes Anderson movies was very satisfied by all of the straight lines and symmetry to be found at Langdon.
It’s also one of the nicest wedding venues in the area. The one hit against it in the past, I think, was that you couldn’t have a large number of guests. They’re currently expanding, with the construction of a brand new reception hall. See a wedding video set at Langdon Hall in the above video!
Ella and James had a gorgeous winter wedding at Langdon. Check out those photos here.
Maja and Quinn are just cool. She’s a liver surgeon, he’s an artist, and they came together over a mutual love of surfing. They had first met on the beaches of Mexico and caught some waves, but their friendship didn’t blossom into anything more serious until Quinn moved to Vancouver a few years later; Maja’s home at the time. Their relationship was rekindled over a few messages on Facebook and—flash-forward another couple years—they’re about to be married, exchanging one last message to each other before walking down the aisle. A letter exchange is a great way to see into the minds of a couple. There’s this awesome, invisible connection that happens when you see Quinn composing his letter while Maja reads it aloud, later that day, across town. Together they’re both tender and sweet, but Maja and Quinn aren’t afraid to get a little silly, too!
Their ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Cambridge Mill, looking out over the Grand River.
