When we last left Michelle and Sonia`s gorgeous Toronto Ontario wedding, they had just had their very first look at each other! Now it was time to relax and have some fun with their wedding party, treasured friends and relatives that were there to share in their day with them…

The nerves were starting to mount as the brides got ready to make their way down the aisle.

But they were nothing but smiling faces when that moment came.

“I love you every step of the way…”

It’s such a beautiful promise to make to the one that you love; a promise that no matter what happens, we’ll take it together, one step at a time.

I met an elderly married couple in a book store a little while ago. They laughed together at little inside jokes, they held the doors open for each other and reached for each others’ hands like they were newly weds. They glowed when they were together.

When my curiosity finally got the better of me I walked over and introduced myself to them. It turns out that these two, so happily in love, were not in fact newly weds but had been married for 45 years. It made me smile that they were that in love even after all this time.

My wish for every couple that I meet is that they too will experience that new love energy every day of their lives. That they will be like newly weds, seeking each other out, wanting each others touch and embrace even on their 75th wedding anniversary.

I have had the pleasure of attending a lot of Weddings over the years. There are a few that stand out in my memory: Masquerade wedding? Super cool. Backyard weddings. So fun.

Friends and family were told that they were showing up for a Surprise Birthday Party for Mandy, but when Mandy showed up to the hall, it was the friends and family that got the shock of their life… There was Shannon and Mandy dressed in full wedding attire with a sign that read… “Surprise, we’re getting married.”

No Birthday party.

They laughed along with these two amazing brides and then they had an amazing party to celebrate two women who just pledged to love each other for the rest of their lives in front of them. And it was absolutely perfect.

I stood in front of Natalie’s hotel room door and paused before knocking. One year ago to the day I met these two energetic, fun-loving girls on their engagement shoot.

It was a snowy winter day here in St Jacobs.

And today on their wedding day, one year later, Jessica got her wish: It was once again a snowy November morning.

I knocked on the door and was greeted by immediate warm smiles. Natalie introduced me to her best friend and together they began preparing for Jess and Nat’s wedding day.

One floor up Jessica and her friends were busy getting ready as well. Hair appointments, make up appointments; it was the typical wedding day chaos.

But all too soon we were rushing toward the hall and you could feel a bit of nervous, anxious, excitement in the air.

They each took turns walking down the aisle, hand made signs proceeded each bride’s entrance into the hall.

They stood together and tearfully read their vows in front of friends and family.

Lesbian Wedding at the London Civic Gardens People come in and out of your life. They walk in when you need them, than fade away. But there are a select few that you count yourself lucky to have known.

Jenn and Sarah are the latter.

People are what matters to them. People. The lives; the ups and downs, the support of their loved ones around them. So it should be no surprise when so many people had a hand in creating their wedding day. Their celebration wasn’t about them. It was a celebration of their lives together, yes, but also of the people who lovingly held their hands, who witnessed the giddy reports from their first dates, who loved them apart and as a couple.
