Leslie and Kevin’s Wedding – Hilton Suites Toronto, Markham Museum Gazebo, and Casa Victoria Chinese Cuisine

I love being a part of weddings where the groom gets visibly emotional. Here’s a secret: men are extremely emotional about things they care about. Does your man say that he’s not an emotional person? Simply watch him while he’s watching his favourite sports team is get pummelled or when they score that game-winning point — I guarantee you that some kind of emotion will be stirred up there! In other words, when a groom shows an emotional response to his bride on their wedding day, he is proving that he cares for her very much. In Deven’s (Kevin’s Best Man) speech, he talked about how Kevin automatically and selflessly puts others before himself, how that played out over time in their friendship together, and how that level of kindness works well in marriage: stories like that are so encouraging to hear.

Leslie and Kevin travelled all the way here to Toronto from Vancouver, and I’m so thankful that I got to know them, and their amazing friends who travelled from all over the world to join them here too! Because they needed to plan and organize their wedding long-distance, they leaned heavily on my personal recommendations for other wedding partners / vendors, so it was nice to be reunited again with so many great friendly faces that day: I’ve been a part of the wedding industry here in Toronto for 9 years now, so I’ve gotten to know a lot of amazing people over that time!

Congratulations, #LeslieAndKevin2017! Say “Hi” to Jetson for me :)

Agnes and Nathaniel’s Wedding – Markham Chinese Baptist Church (MCBC) and By Peter and Paul’s The Manor Event Space Venue

While it might seem strange to many (especially since you always hear a few people at the ceremony laugh at how ridiculous the concept is), I love it when couples do a foot washing ceremony for each other on their wedding day! It’s symbolic of how they will choose to lay down their pride, humble themselves, and put the other person first:

“We live in a very proud and egotistical generation. It is now considered acceptable and even normal for people to promote themselves, to praise themselves, and to put themselves first. Pride is considered a virtue by many. Humility, on the other hand, is considered a weakness. Everyone, it seems, is screaming for his or her own rights and seeking to be recognized as someone important …

When you are tempted to think of your dignity, your prestige, or your rights, open your Bible to John 13 and … Think about this: the majestic, glorious God of the universe comes to earth—that’s humility. Then He kneels on the ground to wash the feet of sinful men—that’s indescribable humility …

Love that is real is love expressed in activity, not just words … The result of that kind of humility is always loving service—doing the menial and humiliating tasks for the glory of Jesus Christ. That demolishes most of the popular ideas of what constitutes spirituality.”

—- John MacArthur, Grace to You: The Humility of Love (John 13)

There’s nothing magical in the ceremony itself, but it is a tangible reminder to actively love each other selflessly in a counter-cultural “you before me” kind of way every day (which definitely isn’t easy).

The weather this summer has been very strange: huge amounts of rain almost every single weekend! It was originally forecast to be a total downpour on Agnes and Nate’s wedding day, but it ended up being mostly cloudy and overcast instead: a huge sigh of relief from us all, especially during their creative portrait session! :)

Plus, I’m super thankful that they decided to set aside some time at the dinner reception for a quick private photo session during “Golden Hour”! Even on a cloudy overcast day, you can still get a glimpse of that characteristic warm glow. And Agnes, I have a confession to make … even though we joked about how tacky and overdone pictures at the gazebo are, they turned out to be some of my favourite photos from the day! :p

Congratulations ‪#‎yuenited2017‬ :)

Cindy and Matthew’s Wedding – Liberty Entertainment’s Toronto Casa Loma Conservatory and By Peter and Paul’s Paramount Event Space

That morning, I quickly learned that Cindy’s father is practically a comedian: he is filled with so much fun and is such a joker. Later, I discovered that Matthew’s father has quite the sense of humour too! Throughout the day, it was really refreshing to see and hear how affectionate both Cindy and Matthew’s parents are to their children. Loved that!

We needed some space to showcase Cindy’s gorgeous, flowing, white dress, so we started the morning off with moving around some furniture. That early morning sweaty workout totally paid off! Wedding dresses that feature sheer lace overlays and stunning details on the back are very popular this year. It’s elegant and timeless: a trend that I’m a huge fan of :)

We were able to access Casa Loma a few minutes before it opened to the public, so thankfully, we were able to enjoy utilizing some the castle and the gardens for photographs before it filled up with tourists! It’s too bad that we’re only allowed to utilize a few specific interior rooms as there are so many other photogenic spaces around such an expansive and historic estate. Regardless, the Conservatory was a beautiful sunlit venue for their ceremony. And I’m glad that “Bear” got to join in on the celebration too (since he’s been a part of their relationship from the beginning)!

As a fellow “foodie”, Cindy was super excited telling me about their amazing wedding cake! They had it custom made with an image from one of their favourite manga (Japanese comics) that takes place in a futuristic world and time modelled after Venice, Italy. Plus, the gold gilt detail on the cake was unbelievable!

Congratulations, Cindy and Matthew! Now, I MustEatMore! ;) #MCLovin_2017
