Every time I get the opportunity to “pitch” for a wedding shoot, I tell all my prospective clients the same thing, “don’t worry about what you feed us”. The reality is that my team and I rarely ever have time to sit and eat at a wedding. Nonetheless, time and time again my clients are always super awesome, and treat us like their guests, giving us the full meal. I have 30 extra pounds that I gained since I started the business to prove it =). Linda and Chris’s wedding was no exception to this kind gesture and it was most enjoyable as their venue was at Canoe… Delicious.
Their wedding was unique in the sense that the day really represented who they are – classy, kind, fun and giving. I remembered when I first met with Chris and Linda, I asked about their wedding and one clear objective stood out. There was to be no formalities, just excellent food, wine, and ambiance to be shared with their closest friends and family. Well congratulations guys you successfully achieved your goal.
The morning started off with me hanging out with Linda and the girls while Eugene captured the guys at the Fairmont Royal York. It is always kind of cool when I get to see familiar faces that I have met at other weddings aka Linda’s sister =). Chris and Linda tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in the grand venue of the Royal York and spoiled their guests with food and wine at Canoe.
If you have been following my blog, you’ll notice that G’s been writing some of the entries and has begun taking over the blog steering wheel… cause she thinks I am a horrible writer (she edits everything I put on – apparently I am not always grammatically correct)… so fine... lets cut to the chase and I’ll tell you about their day by doing what I do best.. through images =)
Linda and Chris, congrats again and thank you so much for having me be a part of your big day and supporting me to do what I love =)
