Ann-Marie + Ryan ~ The Knot Is Tied!
In the days leading up to the wedding, I joked with Ann-Marie, “So what time do you want me to start? Six in the morning? … haha!
Ann-Marie: “Umm, yeah! Is that okay?”
And when I realized that she wasn’t joking, I took a deep breath and told myself: “I got this!” I was still certainly up for the challenge. To be honest, with my full-day wedding packages, I’m at the couple’s expense and ready-and-willing to document the biggest day of their lives no matter the start time. Yet the real reason I had to start that early was because the Hindu ceremony that Ann-Marie and Ryan were going to partake in, was scheduled to start mid-morning. Hence, the earlier prep time.
This day was tremendously fun because it was so-well organized. The ceremony took place at The Vue and for February, it was a sunny-winter perfect day. The pundit ran a meaningful and blessed union for them, explaining to everyone the significance for each ritual. Finally bonded in marriage, the celebration began with some dancing to infectious bhangra drumming and a great lunch spread to re-energize the guests for what was to come later on that evening. Ann-Marie and Ryan both looked stunning in their ceremonial wedding attire that they tantalized the camera with the rich colours.
After the formal shots had been taken, there was time to chill back at the hotel as they got ready one more time. Now, in Westernized garb, they both took on high-fashion and style to continue enjoy the rest of the day. Starting with a “first-look” in their new clothes, energies were refreshed and ready to take on the reception.
It was hard for me to narrow down the pics for what would normally be “highlights”. So, with just shy of 200 images below, I will let you relive their wedding day.
Thank you, Ann-Marie & Ryan for your friendship, having faith in me and entrusting this humble and significant role to capture one of the biggest days of your lives! Blessings!
