When something great happens, and I mean something really great, it's hard to believe sometimes that it ever happened. As though we only know life to be ordinary, or something. Or that fantastic things couldn't possibly really happen! Not to us!
Well, they do. And I am realizing more and more that my role in many peoples' lives is to be able to show people, to prove to them, that this fabulous fabulous experience really happened. To them!
Indeed, it's hard to believe that a week ago we were in Israel. David & Gabriela were celebrating the wedding of their dreams on a mountain top.
The reality is starting to trickle in now through photos, just as the belief wains.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love my clients? Maybe not directly, but I think you can tell by my blog, how wonderful and special I think they are. That's what I think you can tell, anyway. Well, here I'll come straight out and say it: I have the coolest clients EVER!
And it is because of such people, that I am happy to say I will be away for the next two weeks. How far, you ask? How far will I go for a wedding?
As far as you'll send me! And in this case, it's Israel, baby.
So I'm off, faster than you can say Shalom.
I will be checking e-mail, and even possibly sharing an entry or two on here.
I knew from our engagement session, that Heather & Nick's wedding would be wonderful and intimate, and stylish and beautiful at the same time. That is exactly what it was. I promised last post that I would show more photos from their amazing beachside wedding last weekend, and I hold true to my promises.
But I have quickly realized that there is so much goodness in the details of their wedding day, that I think you just have to see the whole thing for yourself. If I post the pictures to illustrate my point, I fear I might bring down the blog with so much content.
Before you do, grab a cup of Joe, because it is not the shortest slideshow. Then, sit back, watch, and marvel in how every single thing was thought of, cared for and attended to. As a result, everyone was feeling the love that day. It was infectious and incredibly fun!
To answer the first question that I think will come up for you, the mind-blowing decorative vision was created by Cathy Lane and her team at Panache Design Works in Collingwood. They brought the outdoors to the indoors with such style.
Congratulations Heather & Nick!! Thank you for sharing the details, and the love, with me.
Stunning blue skies we had yesterday. Nary a cloud to be seen.
A perfect day. For a perfect wedding.
It was so beautiful in fact, it requires a much larger post on here. Everything from the decorations, to the beachfront ceremony in Kincardine, to the couple themselves. There was so much love in the air, and that love was reflected through every detail.
Here are a few pictures. A taste. A taste for what's to come.
ps -- If you are looking at your calendar and thinking, "but it RAINED yesterday!" Think again.
The Chinese Olympians were saying that last Friday was the luckiest day of the year. Indeed it was. Miracles happened. Even here in Canada.
Originally, Nadya and Mick were supposed to have their wedding on Aug 9. About a month ago, their venue in Muskoka went belly-up. Not a good thing for any couple planning a wedding, and certainly not for a couple like this one, where the entire groom's family were coming in from Ireland.
So, they kept the weekend date, but moved the wedding to Friday.
Friday morning, we were devastated to hear that the forecast called for thunder storms. Not a good thing for an outdoor ceremony.
Hadn't this couple had enough bad luck?
Then, an hour before the ceremony, the clouds parted. No, not parted. They dispersed. Just tickled the sky. Low and behold, a stunning evening presented itself. And with it, we had an amazing sunset photo-shoot.
When it poured rain the next day on the 9th, I couldn't help but feel even more grateful.
Congratulations you two, you made it!! And what a success it was, too!!
I have been looking forward to Bart & Emily's wedding since we had such a great time at theirengagement shoot on Centre Island in May. Actually, longer. Since I first met them. On the Subway, no less! We clicked immediately, and have commented repeatedly to each other ever since, "I"m so glad we started talking that day..."
On July 12, Emily and Bart had a wonderful wedding at the house Bart grew up in. It was incredibly intimate, and very special to be in their home. A perfect beginning to a rocking celebration at the Steamwhistle Brewery.
Here are some (ok a lot) of selected pictures from the day...
Emily makes her own jewelry. Isn't her necklace stunning?
