So much amazingness happened on Cindy and Walter’s wedding day! This is one of those times when there is simply too much great stuff to show and not enough space to share it all! Anyways, let’s get started :)
I love First Look’s (aka. Reveal’s)! We found a quiet nook for Cindy and Walter to see each other for the first time. Walter was so excited, especially since he could hear Cindy getting closer and closer to him with each and every step!
Cindy and Walter both have a huge love and appreciation for music. They incorporated some of their favourite song lyrics into the design of their stationary as well as into their vows during the ceremony. Among them, the choruses from “Times Like These” by the Foo Fighters, “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, and “I Will Be Here” by Steven Curtis Chapman (a song that personally means a lot to my wife and I)!
Plus, they invited a live band, The Doubts, to get the party started with their well-loved high-energy, high-intensity style. As the night continued, Walter and his best man, Joe, who have played together in a band gigging around the city for a number of years, took to the stage and rocked out a few songs as well!
Their flair bartender, Julie, kept the drinks flowing and kept guests entertained with juggling, flipping, and other tricks! As she was performing, in a tongue-in-cheek way I said, “that would be wicked if those bottles were on fire!” She calmly responded with, “I can do that!” Suffice to say, I was super impressed when she quickly lit them on fire and just continued on without skipping a beat!
What a party! It was really great to see such a wide range of ages having fun and participating on the dance floor, from little babies all the way to grandparents! Grandpa had some serious skills :)
Congratulations, Cindy and Walter! May you both continue to love each other more and more “Today, Tomorrow, Forever”!
