From The Bride…The day started with traditional Chinese door games and tea ceremony. The groom and groomsmen needed to pass challenges designed by the bridesmaids in order to see the bride; one of the challenges was to serenade the bride with a Disney song. This was followed by a fairy tale like ceremony at Casa Loma and finally an intimate reception with our closest family and friends at Auberge du Pommier. We wanted our guests to have fun and share in the day so we had them toss flower petals at the end of our ceremony and post online to our hashtag throughout the day. DIY projects also made a our wedding unique and special. From small touches, such as glamouring up our centerpiece vases with glitter, to making succulent bombonieres for our guests, to our largest project of crafting an entire flower wall backdrop for our photo booth, we really enjoyed these projects and the personality they brought to our wedding.

This light, airy engagement session is just my cup of of tea because as Cari Zhu Photography said, “When they look back on their photographs years from now, their at-home session will mean so much more to them than anywhere else.” But the most special part isn’t the fact that it’s at-home, it’s the love letters the Bride- and Groom-to-be exchanged and read to one another. Sip on all the sweet moments in The Vault!

From Cari Zhu Photography
…I can’t even tell you how much I loved shooting this session. This was the first engagement session I’ve shot at my couple’s home and I’m absolutely in love!!! I’m always thinking of new things to try with my couples. My goal for an e-session is not only to achieve authentic and beautiful imagery, but also to create a memorable experience for my couples. I honestly feel like we really nailed it this time!
As much as I love a beautiful outdoor location with water, trees, wind, and that beautiful sunset glow…it’s still hard to beat capturing a couple in their natural state, simply enjoy living and being together. I know when they look back on their photographs years from now, their “at home” session will mean so much more to them than anywhere else.
To make things even more personal, I asked them to write each other a short love letter before their shoot and had them read it to each other…hence the teary eyed bride-to-be! At first they were skeptical – they claim to be non-sentimental people, but I think I’m slowly converting them. Sean even admitted in his letter that it was a great reminder for why they were having the shoot in the first place.
From The Bride…I met Sean in first year university when I went to visit my best friend (and now maid of honour) at her residence. Right after she introduced me and throughout their friendship during university I would keep telling her “you should date him – he’s cute!” but good thing she never took me seriously or followed through on my advice…
Over the years I would see Sean here and there when I was in Toronto visiting my best friend. The thought of dating would never have crossed my mind in a million years as we were both in relationships and living in different cities (me in Waterloo and him in Toronto). But five years later we saw each other again at a friend’s bbq when we were both single and everything just took off from there.
There’s so much that I love about Sean beyond the physical attraction. I love his intelligence and intellectual curiosity, his ambition and goals of self improvement. I love that despite all of his talents and achievements, he’s one of the most humble and modest people I know. He approaches life with a laid back, calm and logical attitude and always manages to make me feel better in a difficult or stressful situation. We share similar life goals and interests like being active outdoors, playing sports or being accountants! But most importantly everything is better when we’re together – I laugh more, have more fun and am a better person because of him. He’s the yin to my yang.
