On May 16, 2015, I officially started my 2015 wedding photography season! It has been a very warm start and I am so incredibly thankful to my amazing couple, Ria & Brian, for allowing me to document their life event. Ria & Brian is every photographer's dream couple. They balance each other perfectly and I do not mean to sound cheesy, but yes, they have one very important thing in common - tremendous love for each other, their family and friends. Ria & Brian actually got married last year in Jamaica but it did not stop them from putting together a beautiful local celebration for the loved ones a year later. The coverage began with the bridal and groom preparation at Ria's sister's cozy house. The bride wore an absolutely stunning off-white gown from David's Bridal and the groom rocked a Calvin Klein attire. Every wedding detail incorporated two main colours of the wedding reception: Tiffany blue and white. The bridal bouquet consisted of white with a little bit of creamy tones classic roses and light blue hydrangeas with a touch of bling. Ria took care of all the floral and decor arrangements at the Princess Lounge of a spacious Maple Banquet Hall in Mississauga, Ontario. A marine-themed three tier fondant wedding cake was such a cute reference to the couple's destination wedding ceremony. Wedding favours also had a nautical touch - engraved wine glasses with a navy blue nautical cross kept catching my photographic eye and I probably took 20 photos of them from every angle possible.
Despite my overwhelming love for wedding details and their undeniable ability to set the tone of a couple's important day, that is not what makes a life & love celebration special. Precious moments that make your heart sing - They make the day unforgettable: it's the smile that brightens up the bride's beautiful face as she gets her hair adjusted by the mother's caring hands; it's those extra big and tight hugs the bride gives to her awesome wedding guest who flew from the other side of the world to congratulate newlyweds in person; it's crazy dances that make everyone feel alive; it's the time that the bride and groom spend with the people who matter...
Let's live, let's love, let's celebrate life!
