They met at Queen's University and have been together ever since... for over ten years. You can imagine their family doing the happy dance when they announced their engagement and when I met with Simon's mom about photographing their wedding it was evident that they were planning the most perfect day for their kids. And it was perfect... clears skies and all! Top 5 favourite things about this wedding... 1) the sunshine-the last few weddings I have photographed at the Inn on the Twenty had been rainy ones...so I was thrilled to see an outdoor ceremony in the vineyard once again. 2) Kristin's dress was perfectly beautiful... wish i could descrbe it more creatively but the dress was soooo her! 3) the florals created by fleurish were rustic and gorgeous and a lot of them grown here in Niagara... brilliant. 4) being hard core hockey fans... they drank niagara wine from a stanley cup and made their ceremony uniquely their own 5) Simon's mom and Kristin danced to 'here's to you Mrs. Robinson'
All in all a fabulous celebration and we're grateful to have been invited to document the wedding story! Enjoy a few of our favourites from the day...
'We met in Toronto while Erns was on a 3 month work secondment from South Africa. We met, fell in love, and he left 3 months later.
After Erns went back to South Africa, we kept in touch constantly, even though we didn't think anything would come from it. About 6 months later, we decided enough was enough, and met half way in London. We think of this as our first date. We met in the hotel lobby, and it was like we had never been apart. We went for lunch right away at a cute Italian bistro. We talked like old friends.'
These 'old friends got married on a warm and beautiful summer day last season. Marija and Erns celebrated at Chateau Des Charmes but before their reception they had a 'first look at Centennial Park in Stoney Creek and were then married at their local Serbian Church.
There's too much pretty to squeeze into one blog post so you'll have to visit next week to see their gorgeous ceremony and reception!
One last look at winter before the spring weather rolls in! In February we celebrated with Naya and Matt at the Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Is there a more romantic setting for a winter celebration?
Sweetest flower crowns made by Fleurish for these ladies! It was a balmy -4 degrees so we had the chnace to do photos outside in the fresh snow.
Congratulations again Matt and Naya!
