As you may know, we were at the National Bridal Show at the Direct Energy Centre this past weekend. Here’s a few people we liked and booths and details we loved. Special mention to our almost-neighbours Helen and Lloyd at Stylish Weddings (Paper Impressions), who do super fabulous work and turned out to be the nicest people ever (despite their kid keeping them awake at night). See you next year everyone!
As I was writing this post, I came across this quote on Pinterest: “The couples that are ‘meant to be’ are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before.” For Lindsey and Jorge, for a part of their relationship, that hurdle, that obstacle, was distance. They met at work, fell in love, and then things got tricky, with Jorge having to return for Mexico and Lindsey staying here. But their love was strong, and, with the support of their family, they eventually managed to get everything sorted out and tie the knot. And I was lucky enough to cover their beautiful and sunny wedding day with Bowen. Lindsey and Jorge are people you can’t not like: joyful and caring, they welcomed us as if we were family, right from the beginning. And so when I sent Lindsey the video and she admitted it made her tear up, we felt good, like we’d actually successfully captured, in some little, simple way, a bit of what their love is about. I really hope you guys have a beautiful life as husband and wife… and we look forward to sending you anniversary gifts now and then!
Been very excited about sharing these images from Winnie and Jason’s wedding for a while now. These two lovebirds both went to Queen’s University, and eventually met at Telus in Toronto (hence why we did their engagement session there). Now, four years and one Bermuda proposal later, they’ve finally tied the knot!
Full-of-life, fun-and-quirky, food-loving Winnie and Jason’s beautiful wedding day took place at the Old Mill in Ancaster, with a stint at Tiffany Falls for some couple photos. Together with Marek, I had a wonderful time photographing their special day, one that was filled with beautiful sunlight, candid moments, and a whole lot of yellow – seriously, check out those groomsmen socks and yellow ‘bridal’ boots!
Hope you enjoy the images as much as we enjoyed shooting them!
We featured Ewa and Alex’s engagement photos on the blog on June 5th, but as you can imagine, video sometimes takes a little bit more time, so it wasn’t quite ready right there and then. But a month after, it’s ready and approved by Ewa (and Alex, I imagine… hehe!) and I can share it with you! This is a no-dialogue/interview edit. To me, the neatest thing about it is Ewa’s slightly off-key choice of music (‘The Only One’ by The Black Keys)… at first I thought it may be too dramatic, but after cutting images to it, and giving the piece a slightly vintage-y look, I actually really like the effect!
Well, I won’t keep you any longer… just wanted to share. Maybe it’ll give some of you ideas (i.e. if you really like your dogs, why not bring them along?). If you like it, leave a comment or share it. Or ask questions if you want? In any case, that’s it for now. Take care! – Christian
We’re happy to share this with you today, as we’d had to keep it under wraps to maintain the surprise for the guests at Karen and Andrew’s wedding, that happened last week (video of that to come soon)!
Karen and Andre have known each other for a long time now, but as Karen describes, their love story didn’t begin with an Aha! moment, but rather grew from a friendship deeply-rooted in honesty and kindness. They’ve played softball together, Andrew ‘conveniently’ got transferred to work close to Karen, and throughout it all developed a unique relationship together.
But the last years have been harder: Andrew travels all over the place for work – “he’s like George Clooney in Up in the Air” – and Karen went back home to the East Coast to study to become a doctor! Nonetheless, despite the distance, they’ve remained strong and committed to each other, as is obvious from this video.
Now they’re married and we’re so happy for them two!
