Last Saturday the temperatures plummeted and the snow fell with a vengeance.
But while it may have been negative ridiculous outside, these two beautiful brides didn’t mind. Their hearts were full and there was nothing that was going to keep them from enjoying their wedding day.
I got to spend a little time with both the brides, one on one, before they said their heart warming “I do’s”.
I just love getting things in the mail.
Every time I see that little red flag flying beside my mailbox, I run out expectantly. What will I find today?
Letters from family and friends?
Postcards from around the world?
Wedding Season, I’m ready for you.
Wedding Registries – Give the gift of Magic; the gift of lasting Memories.
Gone are the days where couples, just starting out, were getting married and needed bed sheets and blenders to stock their houses with. More and more couples are already established by the time they hit the aisle and say their “I do’s”. So what is Grandma to do if she wants to give a meaningful present? Money? Gift Cards?
Now at 2Bride Photography we offer a Wedding Photography Registry for your friends and family to contribute toward. Instead of traditional registries, they can contribute toward your Wedding Photography package or toward those extras you had your eye on…
Take a look through our product offerings and add them to your Registry the same way you would at one of the big super stores. Wall canvas? Yes please! Custom photo album of your favourite poses and photos? Definitely! You friends and family will receive a “We’re Registered at” card with a link to your personal Registry. There they can go online and view your ‘Must Have’ list and either pitch in toward an item or buy the item outright for you.
They’ll give the gift of meaning; of lasting memories from your Wedding Day.
Financing – An Alternate way to pay for your Wedding Package.
Weddings can be a real pain in the pocket book.
Lump sum payments seem to be required by every vendor… half of them all on the exact same day!
What’s a couple to do but turn their pockets inside out?
We definitely understand the strain all these payments can make on your normal day to day finances. Which is why 2Bride Photography now offers an easier way to pay for your Wedding Photography. Financing.
Split the cost of your Wedding Package into equal monthly payments. Choose the day you want your payment to come out each month. Choose the payment method (Credit Card or through your bank account) and we will withdraw the amount directly from your credit card or account each month until the package is paid in full. You no longer have to worry about large payments to be made. It’s just one easy form and you’re done. No more stress.
I am definitely someone who endorses Getting Ready Photos.
I know, I know… that sounds like something that I have to say. You are a photographer, Heather… would you ever tell us there are photo shoots you wouldn’t endorse???
I hear your skepticism from a mile away.
But think about the benefit like this… An Engagement shoot is a great time for you and your partner to sit down together, take a breather from all of that wedding planning, to laugh, have a good time and to walk away with a momento of the two of you right now before you slip the rings on your fingers.
Getting ready photos can be exactly like that. They don’t have to be the all too familiar Pinterest shot of you and a room full of bridesmaid’s helping you into your wedding dress or of your soon to be Father-in-law straightening your tie. They can be that moment before the wedding where you take a deep breath, let all of the anxiety go and just enjoy these last few moments (looking AMAZING might I add) before you tie the knot.
Some couples choose to do them separately. Some choose to do them together as a first look. It all depends on you and your personality. But I definitely recommend that moment before you giddily walk down the aisle, starring into the eyes of the one you love, tearing up, to take a moment… a breath… to capture you on your wedding day in that moment of peace.
I first met Mel & Beth over Skype, their lives a blur of thesis statements and wedding plans, left no time for consultations.
So we met for the first time in the comfort of our own homes, face to face by iPad video cameras.
Even though there was distance, I didn’t feel any of the distance.
I grabbed a cup of coffee and curled up on my coach and we shared stories about each other like we were old friends sitting in eachother’s home.
Mel & Beth weren’t really fancy people. They didn’t like a lot of attention (even though that was kinda inevitable on their wedding day!). They’re laid back. They’re friendly. They’re relaxed. And that was what they wanted their wedding to be like; a giant party. No big to-do. Just friends and family getting together.
They decorated with family photos, fun sayings, oragami storks, and jenga blocks as their guest book so in the future they could play a game that would remind them of the support of their friends and family.
It was a chilly, snowy November day when we met at the George Brown House in Toronto Ontario.
There was a little bit of snow on the ground and a little in the air, but that didn’t stop these two from playing inside and outside the beautiful grounds.
