We finally got our pro pics back, and I’d love to share some highlights with the hive from our big day!
I took a poll before creating this post since I wasn’t sure how many photos is too many for a recap (it’s difficult to narrow them down!)- everyone said there’s no such thing as too many so here goes…!
(I also posted a link to our short Wedding Video here , in case you’re interested- our friend made it as her gift to us!)
ETA: Some of the pictures are loading with weird washed-out colours – apologies, I’m not sure how to fix that.
Such a sweet reaction of one of my bridesmaids seeing me as a bride:
Some pictures of me before the ceremony:
Our ring bearer and rings:
My bouquet – my aunt gave me a locket with my brother’s picture in it. He recently passed away and her gift meant so much to me:
I absolutely love his expression here (seeing me walk down the aisle):
He sang me his vows – I loved it.
So did my parents:
Signing the marriage license – The lantern on the table was for my brother, and the boutonniere in front of it would have been his:
My other brother and I shared an emotional moment looking at it
Group photo with everyone in attendance – I wanted to do this as part of our thank-yous:
My dad and I
Some silly shots!
Our photographer joked about how the ‘best gal’ kept trying to get out of the photos, so he told us to point at her to make her the centre of attention (all fun, of course):
We then went to the subway station before taking a train to our reception – such fun!
My dad blowing bubbles from the ‘kids’ table outside. Bubbles were also a part of our engagement shoot.
We had people sing love songs to us if they wanted us to kiss – it was a big hit! These are 2 of my aunts – I hope I have similar “good looks” genes as I get older!
Our parents’ speeches:
Fantastic photo of my mom and my aunt (her sister) having fun:
Dancing with my dad – some footage is in our wedding video (link at the start of this post):
Our wedding desserts, baked by my friend and bridesmaid – lime cheesecake, lavendar chocolate ganache macarons & pistachio macarons:
Fun dancing shot – notice my 81 year-old grandmother in the middle!
Most of the photos above were taken by Toronto-based Jeff Turner of Straylight Photography. (But he does travel.)
My uncle (also a pro photographer) took some shots that I can’t wait to see. Maybe I’ll post some of them later, too!
Apologies again for the faded, weird colour many of these photos uploaded with. I hoped you enjoyed them, nonetheless!
