On your wedding day, you’re incredibly busy thinking about the here and now. The fact that you’re about to walk down the aisle with the man of your dreams and profess your love to one another in front of all your family and friends. How nervous you are; with huge bursts of excitement that send shivers down your spine. Sure you say words like “forever” and “future” and “someday,” but you’re really focused on the day at hand. What the train of your dress will look like as you walk down the aisle. What your guests will think of the food you serve and the favors you gift them with. And who you’ll be greeting, thanking, and hugging during the ceremony and reception. It’s your wedding day and that’s exactly how it should be.
But it’s our job, as photographers, to think about the future. It’s our job to picture you 15 years from now as you show your wedding photos to your children for the very first time. And it’s our job to make sure the moments from your wedding day are preserved in a way that will still hold great meaning to you when you’re old and gray and your wedding is just a brief memory in a life filled with special moments. Preserving Anna and Petar’s wedding was easy. They had a simple, classic grace that will easily be translated throughout the years. Their love for each other is obvious, whether they’re gazing into each other’s eyes or Anna, in a picturesque San Patrick gown, is sitting on Petar’s lap and we’re spying on them from the back.
We loved the special touches throughout the wedding that mixed classic and modern. The attire and flowers were beautifully timeless and the surroundings at the Credit Valley Golf and Country Club were stunning. But the groomsmens’ striped socks and eclectic table settings allowed Anna and Petar’s personality to come through in a way that will forever show the photos’ viewers who they are. Instead of a limo, Anna and Petar opted for a vehicle with a bit more character. They pulled up in an electric VW bus from The Electric Bus Company, allowing us to shoot some absolutely charming photos.
Anna and Petar got married because they saw a great future with one another. But on their wedding day, they’re stuck incredibly happy being stuck in the present with each other. And when it comes to love, the present is the most wonderful place to be.
