ABIGAIL + JURIS

From the moment I met these two and we gushed over the light and scenery in their beautiful engagement photos shot in Hawaii while there on vacation - I knew that we would get along just fine! Abi and Juris have been together for a long time and the length of their love shows in the way they share conversation, look at each other and seem to understand one another on a very deep level. It was a chilly April day, but these two threw an amazing party for all of their loving family and friends! I may have shook my booty just a bit! In the midst of it all, I found myself a new top 10 wedding venue in Arlington Estate. Potential brides, check it out! It's absolutely stunning and their standard decor is amazing. See below - yup, those chairs are in house!! While you are in Hawaii  on your honeymoon A+J, I hope you smile reliving your day one more time this week!

BRETT + REBECCA

They have a quiet love and respect for one another. It's so evident that they adore each other just by seeing the way they look at one another and the way that he cares for her in the most nurturing and honest way. Their union was one I won't forget - and it was a blast on top of it all!  A huge thank you to Laura of Laura and Co Events for introducing me to these two and to Rebecca and Brett for introducing me to the Henna ceremony!

ALBINA + MARK - PART ONE

We have been just itching to share this wedding! We are finally able and I don't even know where to start. Mark and Albina (as well as their love) have captured me by the heart for sure! They both have creative souls and so much respect for the arts and for each other. I always felt like we could create something beautiful together with so much ease. They are kind, open, willing and excited about everything. The world is their oyster and I have really enjoyed being in their presence and learning from the way they live life. My heart is so full and thankful for having been a part of their lives and of their day.

We are excited to have had Mark and Albina's Graydon Hall Manor wedding featured in the 10th issue of Lavish Dulhan magazine! There are so many images and so much to share that we have broken this up into 2 posts. Today we'll share their ceremony and later on we will share their reception. As always it was an absolute pleasure working with Malvina of Fabulous Occasions - she is just incredible!
