When Evelyn & Jonathan first contacted us about photographing their wedding in Canada, they were so sweet to make sure that we were okay with flying all the way there for their wedding since it took place the weekend before we got married. And, though many said we were crazy to be flying out of the country the week before our own wedding, how could we possibly pass up the opportunity?! This couple seriously could not be sweeter or more adorable, and we immediately fell in love with them. They met at university (both math majors), and soon they’ll both be pursuing graduate studies in Germany! Their wedding was held at Terra Cotta Conservation Area, which is just outside Toronto, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. And all the DIY elements they incorporated into their day had us seriously floored. To start with, Evelyn’s mom made (yes, made) the skirt of her dress and her veil. And several hands worked hard to put together every strand of the beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. And one of the bridesmaids did the calligraphy for all the signs. And I could seriously go on and on mentioning the incredible work that so many talented friends and family members of this couple put in to make this day exactly what Evelyn & Jonathan envisioned.
Evelyn & Jonathan, you two are pure gold. You both have such beautiful hearts, and your love for the Lord truly showed on your wedding day. Thank you so, so much for trusting us to document your wedding day (and to find our way there without a GPS haha). Being a part of your day was such an honor, and I wish we could re-live this day over and over again.
this traditional Chinese tea ceremony was one of my very favorite moments of the day! the ceremony involves the bride & groom serving tea to their families as a way of honoring them, and it was such a sweet time between Jonathan, Evelyn & their loved ones.
