As a Toronto wedding photographer, I get to see couples get married in all kinds of locations; restaurants, banquet halls, parks and even at their cottages.  Most of these couples share their day with their moms, dads and brothers and sisters.  Donna and Joe; however, had a few other special people to share their wedding day with… their 3 beautiful and amazing children.  This blog post isn’t just about Donna and Joe’s Black Creek Pioneer Village wedding but also about their three little ones and the role they played in such a special day.

The day began in Donna’s bridal room with all the ladies gathered, coffee in hand, getting beautified.  Donna’s little ones were being pampered, too!  Hair was getting curled and lipgloss was applied and the little ones were loving every minute of it.  Donna, meanwhile, was gluing on a few extra sequins onto her dress.  Now, there are crafty brides… and then there’s Donna.  She’s beyond crafty.  She’s just totally awesome and detail oriented with her work.  When she’s not crafting for her own business, she’s gluing thousands upon thousands of sequins onto her dress for a little added touch of bling.  Now that’s dedication!

The boys room was a tad more relaxed.  Perhaps it was the fact that they had a beautiful bottle of Glenlivet to help start their day out on the right foot.  A few cheers and a toast to the groom and then back down to business.  Joe had to get his son ready first – it’s important to be the ring bearer and you’ve got to look good while doing the job.  Once the little one was looking adorable it was Joe’s turn.

The first look was simple and sweet.  There are so many reasons to take your wedding pictures before your ceremony and to choose to do a first look.  When you have little ones, like Donna and Joe do, doing a first look is a spectacular way of having your children involved in the big reveal.  Tears all around on this one.  So sweet!

Wedding photos at Black Creek Pioneer Village were followed by a sweet and simple ceremony at the Avenue banquet hall.  The ring bearer was looking good as he walked down the aisle and Donna and Joe’s littles one made sure all the papers were signed correctly as she joined them for the signing of the register.  Dinner and dancing followed with the most special dance being between Joe and his mom.  Just because you’re in a wheelchair doesn’t mean you can’t get on the dancefloor and enjoy a special moment on a truly special day.  More tears for all; the emotion just flooded the room.

Why do I love being a Toronto wedding photographer?  Because it allows me the opportunity to meet people like Donna and Joe as well as their families and friends.  They have gone from clients to friends and I couldn’t be more grateful to have been given the opportunity to not only capture their super sweet wedding day moments but to also call them my friends.  I wish you all a lifetime of love and happiness! xoxo
