The day had finally come and we woke up bright and early and headed over to Burlington to shoot this much anticipated wedding. We were a bit worried about the weather… but as the day went on…the clouds parted and it was nothing but pure sunshine for these two.
A few months back we had shot Monique and Rob’s cherry blossom engagement shoot. Right off the bat, we knew that these two would be tremendous fun and that the photos would come out remarkable. Remarkable does not do this wedding justice. Monique’s gorgeous lace vintage-inspired gown was breath-taking…. our jaws litterally dropped when we saw her. Her beautiful hair was mastered into a beautiful loose braid that resembled a very natural and eve in the garden look. The wedding had one re-occurring theme for us…. unity. The outdoor tented ceremony took place in the Royal Botanical Gardens. It was a full house. People stood in the back. All of them, very close friends and family came to see the union of these two loving people. At one point during the ceremony, the officiant asked everyone in the tent to stand and asked if they were in favor of the marriage of Monique of Rob. Everyone chimed cheerfully, “We do.” It was beautiful and one of our favorite memories from any wedding we have shot to date.
Enough jabbering on… we will let the pictures do the talking. Here are some of our favorites.
we love this photo above. A brief quiet moment of pause before the dress goes on…
Proud and very dapper father of the bride.
This one shot gives us butterflies. We raced down to catch the bride before she departed the hotel for the ceremony. Solitude and deep in thought. Absolutely stunning bride…
The Groom and his entourage were as happy as clams waiting for the arrival of monique.
See Monique… no need to worry about being late. All is good.
Take a look at those awesome heels!!

Absolutely adored that the ring pouch had Monique’s initial on it.
And the first kiss as husband and wife….
Photo break time! Pizza snacks makes monique happy 😛
And of coarse…

“Hampster hands” run in the family
Okay… and we saved the tear jerker for last…
The tear in the brides eye during the first dance is epic.
We wish these two the most happiness in the entire world. And we are very certain that everyone who was there on their special day wishes them the same. The pictures prove it.
