I met C&J several years ago, and I immediately fell in LOVE with the two of them.
He is such a bold individual, he speaks his mind and lets you know exactly what he wants. She is a little more reserved, and perhaps might come across as even shy, But that only lasts a few minutes before you get to know her, then the personality comes out.
The two of them we absolutely, adorably in Love when I first got to know them.
I was so excited to receive the phone call inviting me to be their photographer. OF Course!
The morning started with the boys getting ready, stopping into a local Tim Horton's for a coffee and breakfast.
While the girls got ready at a family member's beautiful home.
When the men showed up, the bridesmaids ensured that the guys played the appropriate door games.
An obligatory part of a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony. The groomsmen all brought gifts for family members of the Bride.
C&J had decided to do a first look before the tea ceremony or the wedding ceremony.
His excitement as he waited for her to come down the stairs, was obvious.
She was just as delighted to see him!
The bride was so lucky to have an Uncle who had offered up his home for the tea ceremony. He has done most of the work in the home, himself. He finished off his yard specifically for her to be able to hold her wedding there.
The bride with her mother. So lovely, both of them
The ceremony site and the rings.
The friends and family who joined in on the wedding and tea ceremonies.
Time for some fun, creative, post-wedding shots.
Off to the reception site.
Sneaking in a few moments while getting ready for the evening's guests to arrive.
The Groom was absolutely dedicated to making sure the day went smoothly for both him and his bride.
A good deal of the planning, decorating and designing was overseen by him! She is one lucky lady to have man so devoted to her happiness!
This was also a wonderful opportunity for me to do some creative portraits with her.
And then it was time for the party.
The ladies snuck away for a dress change!
And a few shenanigans
