last weekend was Easter weekend, which is a time for hope, love and faith ,as well as a time for new beginnings.
it was also the weekend that Darlene & Adam got married and began their life together as a family.
the wedding was a cross-border event, with the ceremony being held in Plymouth Michigan and the reception here in Windsor. let’s just say that i am sincerely thankful that the bridal party even made it back across to Windsor!! if the grumpy border guard had had his way, the limo would have been confiscated and the bridal party stranded at customs. there were a few minutes when i was having a nervous breakdown as i waited for the group to show up at our Pinky’s for some ice cream.
i want to give credit to Adam & Darlene for never getting stressed at any moment throughout the day!! it was inspirational actually.
a veil was forgotten, the limo got lost, border guard issues and a rush to have enough time for photos would have sent most couples into a tailspin, but these two just kept on smiling and the bridal party just enjoyed the ride. i really don’t know how you can have ice cream AND be grumpy at the same time anyways.
i love my job.
a special thanks goes out to a couple of people.
thank you Canada Customs for taking pity on an adorable bridal party and allowing them to cross the border.
thank you Mr.Golden Sun for finally making an appearance in Windsor. it was nice to see you again.
thank you to the Pinky’s owner for being awesome and coming to unlock the ice cream parlour for us, even when we were an hour late arriving (it was Canada Customs fault. blame them)
thank you Lion Dance people for being fabulous and furry.
thank you Darlene & Adam for choosing me to document your very special day. it was an honour and a pleasure.
