After 12 years and having photographed over 400 weddings, what in the world would I want to do on my day ?? Nick proposed on New Years eve, with a bottle of champagne, under moonlight on a frozen hill, at the tree that he'd planted years ago to honour his mom.
This was where we had to get married! The summer solstice, we decided, was the perfect day.
Our incredible and talented friends came together to help and make this day so special, so unique and memorable!
We were lucky to have these people be a part of creating our day! Hannah Sung was our dj. Sara at www.leslouises.com created our delicious picnic in the park, Megan at Aster Design did our elegant invites, the talented Catherine at www.documentographer.com captured the day beautifully, filmmaker Anita Doron shot a film for us, www.stemz.ca did the most vibrant and sensual florals I've seen (I think I'm being a little biased here) & my dear friend Christina Gapic www.christinagapic.com also shot some amazing images of the day. Carla Naylor at www.facesbycarla.com made us pretty and Gord Light and Meher Steinberg of the famous Gospel Sundays were our fabulous minstrels!
We know we are very lucky and have amazing friends around us!
Just like people had said to me, it was all a blur.
At the end of the day the beautiful food is devoured, the wine is drunk, the flowers have wilted and the dress is torn and dirty from the dance floor.
I now know even more than before, the importance and value in preserving and archiving the day !
Now I can soak in the details, the flowers, the picnic, and the most important people in our lives sharing it all with us !
I will look at these photos over and over and they only get better as the day itself gets further away.
