I have spent quite a bit of time with Liz and Neil over the past year as I photographed their engagement photos with their new puppy Lilly, Liz's bridal shower and finally their gorgeous wedding! They are an amazing couple and lots of fun to be around!
Once again, the weather cooperated and we were able to have a full wedding day without a single rain drop! There were also lots of personal touches to the wedding that really represented who Liz and Neil are. We took photos at Liz and Neil's new house and with their well loved dog, Lilly! The ceremony was held at UofT where Liz and Neil met. After the ceremony we even snuck into the student house where they both lived and took photos in a few special spots. The reception was at the Boulevard Club where Liz worked for years as a camp counsellor.
We really have the best job! I truly love hearing the stories that bring people together. Every week, we celebrate an amazing milestone with our clients and learn the little things that make their relationships what they are.
Congrats Liz and Neil!
Gotta love an organized bride!!
We paid a quick visit to the UofT student house where Liz and Neil met!
Lina and Blair's wedding day was quite possibly the rainiest wedding day ever!!! However, that did stop us from getting tonnes of great photos and having a fantastic day with them!! Lina and Blair had their "official" wedding ceremony the day before, so with most of the formalities already out of the way we started the day off at Lina's house where the groom was put through many torturous tasks before being allowed to see the bride. Then, special ceremonies were performed including a tea ceremony to honour Lina & Blair's family.
After that it was off to do photos - luckily I always have rain locations in the back of my mind and with a bit of coaxing the lovely receptionist at the Markham Civic Center let us in to do all the bridal party photos there. Right as we were finishing, the skies cleared for about 15 minutes allowing us to do some photos outside with great light! The rain started up again and we headed to their reception where they had a traditional 10 course meal and lots of fun & games... usually I love seafood, but I must say all the seafood courses were umm... interesting at 2 months pregnant - thank goodness for gingerale!! We left after shooting for 12 hours straight and the party was still going strong... I've never seen a conga line to "Hey Ya", talk about a wild party!! Congrats Lina & Blair - we had so much fun with you and your guests!!
At last allowed to see the bride!
