TBT: SWS on The Ellen DeGeneres Show



We’re celebrating Throw Back Thursdays at SWS!

Yes, no joke! We were on Ellen! This was a small video that became an overnight Internet sensation, and we would like to share it again with everyone. Here’s how it all happened:

In 2012, SWS was given the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding at Toronto’s Miller Lash House. Unfortunately, one of the bridal party pair – Lindsey and Woody – tumbled over as they entered the wedding reception. (FYI, accidents aren’t something that we wish for to happen and we really hope it never happens to anyone during weddings)

Although it was a painful and embarrassing situation for Lindsey, she wasn’t upset about what happened and was a good sport about it. She approached us afterwards and asked if we could post the video online. We did, she wrote about it on her blog (read about it here and here), and boom!! The video exploded and eventually got the attention of Ellen. Funny thing is Lindsey had dreamt of being on Ellen one day, and although she never got invited to the show in person, she got a little glimpse of stardom. Outside of making great videos, I guess we also make dreams come true.
