Lara and Eric!

What an absolutely perfect wedding Lara and Eric had this weekend. We knew they'd be great to work with as soon as we met them and it was no surprise that their families were lovely too.

The weather was all over the place on Saturday- from rain to freezing rain mixed with sudden bursts of sunshine. It didn't stop anyone from having a great time and Chris captured some amazing shots!! I don't think they stopped laughing and smiling all day. You can actually see the hail coming down in one of the shots below, as Eric lovingly covers Lara with an umbrella as they walked through the park. As they were having a quiet moment together the sun brilliantly appeared and it's one of my favourite shots of the day! Lara's sister Stephanie and Eric's brother Nevin (and his sweet girlfriend Pei) didn't complain once as they shivered in the park, right across the street from Niagara Falls!

As Chris was taking some cool shots of Lara and Eric overlooking the Niagara River I spotted a double decker bus in the parking lot. We couldn't resist the opportunity to have some fun and take over the bus! (a special thanks to the very sweet driver who said yes to my request) I loved this spontaneous moment and how enthusiastic they were to everything.

Chris and I share our wedding anniversary with Lara and Eric (Chris likes to tell everyone we got married in 2000 so he'll always remember how long he's been married...). I can't think of a better way to celebrate than by watching two people in love exchange their vows and begin a new life together. It reminded me why we're in this business and what a blessing it is to be a part of such special moments.

Thank you, Lara and Eric, for allowing us to be a part of it.
