One of the amazing things about our work is that we get to photograph all types of weddings, go to all kinds of locations, and experience all sorts of rituals first-hand. In this case, we had the opportunity to shoot Christine and Felix’s contemporary wedding, which happened at Columbus Event Centre in Toronto, with a stop at Downsview Park before going to the reception at La Primavera. These are straightforward facts, and they’re all true, but what’s more important is the things that are more difficult to accurately describe: the sense of anticipation as Christine sat on the bed looking at her dress before getting ready, the playfulness of Felix and his groomsmen, the emotion when they finally saw each other – the big reveal! – and then that moment when they both officially became husband and wife. How do you tell the story of why someone falls in love, of what compels them to tell the whole world about it? I’ve attempted to do it in images here, and hope that this selection of photographs can convey, in some tenuous way, the sheer beauty of this awesome couple’s big day.
Christine and Felix, many, many congrats, I hope you have as much fun for the rest of your marriage as you did on your wedding day!
