Cultures and traditions are such an important and beautiful part of every wedding day. And throughout the weddings we have been lucky enough to be a part of we have seen a lot of different approaches and takes on North American traditions. But what I really love is seeing different traditions and cultures mixed into one truly memorable day, and that is exactly what Juliet + Blake had planned for their wedding. From Juliet’s accessories right up to their traditional dances during the reception it was so great to see the mix from both Canada and the Philippines.
Colour can have a pretty big impact on your wedding day. Your chosen colour is typically part of your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, stationary, and general decor. But picking a colour (or a couple colours) to match your personalities and represent your day can be difficult, especially if you are one of those people who doesn’t have one specific colour as your favourite. But picking one colour, or even two, was not what Juliet + Blake had in mind for their day, and I am oh so glad they went in such a vibrant direction!
Their sneak peek was all about their four legged guest, Archer. And, in my opinion, he deserved the attention as he was just so awesome Jenna + Tim’s day. So cuddly, fluffy and soft and sweet as can be – and quite photogenic to boot! He wasn’t named Best Dog for nothing after all.
But the highlight of this wedding day really was the lovely couple themselves. Jenna + Tim are so wonderful and sweet.
The most important factor on any wedding day is the people. The lovely couple of course, but also the friends and family that help them celebrate their love. And when you are planning your day, you need to remember that some of the most important ‘people’ in your life have fur and four legs.
There was no amount of heat and humidity that could dampen Kristyn + Alistair’s wedding day. For every unpleasant second brought on by the weather, their day presented ten times more in beauty and of course, love. I said it in their sneak peek, and it really is true, every moment of their wedding day left me in photographer heaven.
