a wedding here in Windsor Ontario~
it’s that time again…..
yes, it’s a couple of days later than i hoped it would be, but i’m in the midst of wedding insanity around here, and i’m pretty much editing around the clock, so i’m hoping that no one will mind a blog post on Friday instead of Wednesday.
thanks a bunch.
last year, i got a phone call from a bride, we’ll call her Stephanie, and we just hit it off immediately! i got a sense from this lovely bride, that she had some SERIOUS plans for her big day, and i couldn’t get enough of her excitement!! you see, not only did Stephanie have some BLING BLING ideas for her wedding, but she was totally and madly in love with her fiance, and you could hear that in her voice.
when she asked me to be a part of her day, i knew that i was in for a treat!
i wasn’t disappointed.
Stephanie & Kevin’s wedding was last Saturday here in Windsor, and i think that the day lived up to Steph’s expectations, in more ways than one. family & friends came from all around, to surround this couple with love and attention (and marshmallows), and i don’t think i’ve ever seen so many tears of joy at any wedding thus far.
one thing that stood out to me, was the fact that Steph’s grandmother flew in from Florida to not only be at the gown shop when Stephanie picked out her dress, but again when she had her dress fittings! that’s the kind of love that encircled this couple last weekend, and didn’t disappoint.
it was a HOT day yet again (imagine that…. a hot day in July) , but we tried to keep out of the blazing sun and spent some time finding a couple of shady locations for photos! let me just say, that an air conditioned limo-bus filled with cold champagne and beer always helps to keep people cool. just sayin’.
The ceremony was held at Assumption Church at the University of Windsor, and even though it was NOT air-conditioned, it was a beautiful service with lots of tears of joy.
Stephanie & Kevin picked the St.Clair Centre of the Arts for their reception , and i don’t think they could have picked a nicer place. decked out in some BLING decor, with a cake that kept on going, the dinner and party was fantastic! i’m sure the party continued into the night, with dancing, hugging, and pelting with marshmallows (don’t ask).
i want to take a moment to thank Stephanie & Kevin for letting me be a part of their wedding day. You guys obviously adore each other to pieces, and the commitment that you have for each other is wonderful to observe. you have had some crazy ups and downs with jobs and moving around lately, but all those things have made you guys come together and really commit to each other in such a great way. with the help if your ‘lucky penny’ , i’m sure that you will not only have the most awesome life together, but a life filled with adventure and love, boating adventures and the most wonderful family around.
big hugs to you both!!
