Grant and Iris Sneak Peak
As it turns out April 27th 2019 wasn't as warm as a lot of people expected, but that didn't stop the incredible amount of warmth and love that was involved in the union of these two families.
These moments are sometimes quiet and reflective, but mostly filled with laughter and tears of joy.
The First Look
I LOVE setting up first looks! Its so fun to see the joy and happiness on the couples faces, but more so the silent moments as the two enjoy each other with no other distraction.
We chose the first look to be at the venue.
Legends on the Niagara had so many great spots but we chose the stairs in front of the pond
The Tea Ceremony
The tea ceremony is the introduction of the bride and groom to each other's families, its is a significant part of Chinese weddings as the act of serving tea is a sign of respect and appreciation. Its also a chance for parents and relatives to share well wishes and words of wisdom.
After a few touch ups to makeup, Iris was back in her dress and ready to walk down the aisle. With a final huddle from the wedding party with words of encouragement from everyone involved it was game time!
Words could not explain the smile on the two of there faces.
So that's why I'm here.....
que more photo's!
After the ceremony was finished we had a quick couples session. Followed by dinner and dancing.
I'm so happy for Grant and Iris and feel so lucky to spend the day documenting their memories.
