For us, the day we chose to get married was actually based on availability of a few of our preferred vendors and not for the date itself. And even though I joke that it was chosen because it is 6-months from my birthday (and I therefore get a present every 6-months), it truly was just a day in September that fit our criteria. That being said, it is now a very special date for us and the fact that we now share it with two people as truly wonderful as Leandra + Lucas is pretty darn awesome!
Getting to capture Leandra + Lucas’ wedding day on our anniversary at one of our absolute favourite venues was pretty amazing if I do say so myself (proof of how awesome this venue is can be shown through the gift-wrapped basket of biscuits they gave us with our dinner — they know how much I love those biscuits, omnomnom). But this day would have been amazing no matter what date it was on as Leandra + Luke had not only planned a great day, but they filled it with some truly hilarious people!!
From the shenanigans during the photos to the wedding speeches (and dancing all night long), this was such a fun and memorable day. But seriously guys, I think the speeches deserve a second mention because they were on point – the Groom had just about the funniest thank-you speech I have ever heard (toiast <- pronounced like noice, also sorry for the inside joke)! But I suppose the memorable speeches make sense since Leandra loves wedding speeches (she actually listed speeches as one of the things she was most looking forward to in our questionnaire).
And just in case things weren’t already freaking amazing on their wedding day, the Nature Gods decided to gift us not only with lovely weather all day long, but also with an absolutely gorgeous sky come dusk! I really was in photographer’s heaven all day long.
It was an honour to be a part of Leandra + Lucas’ wedding day and it is definitely one I will remember for sooo long to come!!
Thanks to all of these amazing vendors who helped make this wedding possible!
