Paul & Vanja

Nothing is better and more beautiful in my opinion than a wedding filled with laughter and this is exactly what Paul and Vanja’s day was made of.  I really didn’t expect any less because their engagement session was exactly this way too! From the moment I arrived to photograph the ladies as they were finishing up, to the time we left the exciting reception laughter filled each and every moment from their wedding day.

One of my favourite parts from Paul & Vanja’s wedding was their pretty outdoor ceremony held at the Waterfront Banquet & Conference Centre in Hamilton, Ontario.  They had planned a big surprise for everyone, which was that one of their very best friends would be marrying them, and no one had a clue that he would be doing this – not even his significant other.   So to everyone’s delight after the bridal party came down the aisle, the “legal officiant” stepped aside and their friend came up as everyone in the bridal party and all the guests laughed in disbelief and delight that they had been able to actually keep this between themselves until now.  This great surprise was just the start of a memorable and very personal ceremony as Paul and Vanja had truly made this celebration their own.  From the format, to the readings and especially their vows, which were the most personal and true to themselves vows I have ever heard to date; they celebrated their love with laughter.  

If you’re a couple who loves to laugh and who desires that their wedding photos to feel this way too I’d love to chat!  Please reach out through my Inquire Page.  I would absolutely love to work with you!
