I met Peter and Jennifer two years ago when I photographed their friends Maggie & Jack’s wedding. So when they contacted me last year about photographing their wedding, I was absolutely up for it! You might also remember their beautiful sunrise Document Love session at Trinity Bellwoods park and Queen west that I blogged about in the summer.
What can I say about their wedding day? There were definitely many moments that left a deep impression with me. The day started with the usual getting ready, and then Peter and Jenn each read a letter from the other. At which point, I was already tearing up! Then they played door games and the boys were treated to all kinds of crazy tasks which made everyone (myself included) crack up. I laughed so much I was in tears again. Their vow exchange was so touching and heartfelt too, definitely some tears going around then. And then during dinner when the speeches were spoken, Jennifer’s dad’s speech had everyone in stitches again!
It was definitely a day filled with happy tears, laughter and lots of love. I’m an emotional person who tends to wear her heart on her sleeve. This characteristic hasn’t always served me well in real life, but I’m glad that my sensitivity to emotions serves a purpose in my work as a wedding photographer.
Thank you Peter and Jennifer for inviting me to share in one of the most special days of your lives, and for trusting me to document your story! xo
