September 27, 2011 Josh & Trish’s Wedding

I met Josh and Trish about a year ago when they booked me to document their day – they shared their vision of a big wedding and lots of guests… a couple months later I got a call and they wanted to chat about changes. The planning was becoming stressful and not fun… they just wanted to be married! So they changed to a simple wedding – just 25 people present – and they just wanted to be married outside by a tree. It was beautiful. I loved that they followed their hearts – not only to each other, but also to their perfect day! All week it called for rain on Saturday – even when I went to bed on Friday it was calling for rain. Woke up to a perfect day – what a gift!

Josh and Trish have been good friends since grade 4 (my daughter’s age – hmmm….) and so they are completely comfortable around each other and have a great relaxed chemistry. They are so fun to be with – Trish’s crazy, quirky, laughing personality and Josh’s calm and serene presence.

You may remember from Josh and Trish’s engagement session – their love for books! So I tried to incorporate books throughout the day’s images.

You can’t really tell – but I know – I put the rings on the page in Pride & Prejudice where Darcy proposes to Elizabeth (the first time). This quote is there “…allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

Trish and her girls went to the Farmer’s Market the day of the wedding, bought flowers and then arranged them by themselves – they did an amazing job!

Trish had her good friends come from Georgia – and they gave them this great wedding gift! A wreath made of pages from one of Trish’s favourite books (The Historian). What a beautiful gift!

The beautiful dress. Loved the simplicity of it and how you could change the look with it so easily!

Trish had not planned to wear a veil – but her mom repeatedly asked her to. Whenever she would go for a dress fitting her mom would sneak one on her. Trish knew it was important to her mom, and so she surprised her by wearing a small one she ordered from etsy. Her mom was thrilled!

We got to the part in the ceremony when they were having a “hand fasting” ceremony… and Trish realized she forgot the rope she had made! In the relaxed feel of the day she yelled out – “I need a tie! Someone give me their tie!” Ricardo was quick to offer his tie and it made for a laugh during the ceremony!

Trish had asked for some photos of her and Papa as he is very special to her and his memory is starting to go. It was a good day for him on the wedding and he knew exactly who the beautiful bride was. This is the traditional portrait of him and her….

But to me – this moment where he is congratulating his granddaughter, is much more special (and what I would have loved with my own Grandpa).

The grounds were beautiful at Osler House, and we had lots of fun with the wedding party taking photos.
