Canada’s National Ballet School Wedding

January 23, 2017

Erica and Tim’s wedding at the Canada’s National Ballet School was a beautiful intimate affair filled with a lot of love and maybe a tear or two… or several.  Their wedding is the kind of wedding that was unique and beautiful not just because of the venue or the decor or the general aesthetic of it all but because of the amount of love and support that surrounded them and how involved their families were throughout the day.  Both Erica’s mother and mother-in-law helped Erica get ready in the morning, Tim’s father officiated the ceremony, Erica had a very sweet first look with her father, and their entire wedding party consisted of all their siblings.  When I asked them what their favourite part about their special day was, Erica had mentioned how touching it was to be saying her vows with all of their families right up there with them! Tim’s favourite moment is actually pretty adorable too but you’ll have to scroll down to find out what exactly that is 😉

There were also other aspects about their day that made it pretty special.  Tim had personally designed Erica’s engagement ring and made it all by himself. (Seriously??!?! How amazing is that?)  But that’s not all Tim did because apparently this guy can pretty much design anything!! He also designed and made all the party favours which were personalized with each guests’ name.  The story behind that is three years ago, Tim had made Erica a 3D printout of her name when she moved into a place with a roommate and all of their friends joked about wanting one too.  So then he made everyone a 3D printout of their names and now I want want too!!

E+T – From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. It was so wonderful to document these special moments for you two and I felt so loved and welcomed by everyone. Your wedding wins the award for most first looks ever captured in one day but it was so touching to see all the surprised faces and excitement! Congratulations  you two <3
