This post has been a long time in the making! In addition to sessions, just being busy with the kids who are home for the summer has most of my free time tied up. I’ve just had zero time to get things blogged! This was a post that I know many people were anxiously waiting to see though so I really couldn’t make them wait any longer! 😉
I’ve struggled with the wording for this post. Mostly because it’s not every day that one of your best friends gets married…and I had it in my head that I wanted to say something special. The truth is though, the longer I dwelled on it, the harder it seemed to really get out what I want to say. These photos already speak a thousand words. They capture all of the love, fun and beauty of that day. They capture Chrissy and Steve’s personalities and love for one another, seen through my eyes. For the rest of their lives Steve and Chrissy will be looking at these treasured memories and will see them exactly as I did. To me, that’s pretty special and unique. It’s a secret little gift from me, hidden amongst the obvious.
Steve and Chrissy, I’m so thrilled for you. For the lives you are building together, for the new home you’ve bought together, for the family that you will no doubt raise together – for everything that’s to come in your lives as husband and wife. After having been married for almost 9 years, let me tell you that it can be a wild ride. Some days will be wonderful, some days more challenging. Life will throw you all kinds of curve balls – most you’ll never see coming. But at the end of the day, you’ll be stronger for it. Your love will grow deeper, your bond will grow stronger and your trust will be unbreakable. Never forget that there’s a silver lining in all of those hard times. During the wonderful times, never forget to revel in how lucky you are to have each other. To have found each other. To admire what you’ve created together. To laugh with (and at) each other. 😉 Because those, my friends, are the secrets to marriage. Take it from a ol’ veteran 😉
Lots of love from your friend and official family photographer for life (whether you like it or not) ;),
Does this photo below look familiar? See a similar photo taken during their engagement photo session with me!
This beautiful wedding was photographed at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club in Cornwall, Ontario. Please note that as on Ottawa Photographer, I am taking only a very small number of wedding commissions at this time.
