What a beautiful wedding story we had the honour of capturing yesterday. Karen and Lorne were married in an absolutely gorgeous ceremony in the Governor’s Room at the Ancaster Mill. The rains held off, family and friends gathered with full hearts for a celebration joining two families. I especially love ceremonies that unite different cultures and religions and knowing how important having a Jewish ceremony was to Karen it was all that more special seeing the two of them under the Chuppah surrounded by their parents, closest friends, candles and gorgeous florals. The room looked incredible. Speaking of incredible, Karen’s champagne coloured lace dress was breathtaking. My favourite part of their day was when they saw each other for the first time. I love the look on Lorne’s face as Karen looked over at him from the upstairs railing and I especially loved the few minutes they had alone together immediately after when Karen whispers “here we go … now that I’ve seen him I’m ready, now I’m okay”. Their Same Day Edit was a complete surprise. Karen’s mom and dad had requested this as a surprise gift to their daughter and new son-in-law. It was amazing to watch their faces as they watched their wedding story on the big screen surrounded by all of their wedding party, family and friends. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to keep this secret from them the past few months, but I’m so glad we did. What a truly beautiful and memorable gift! The SDE ended with a standing ovation and lots of hugs… we believe it truly captures the essence of their love story.
