Stephanie & William’s spring weddings was one of my favourites to date. The day was emotional, incredibly fun and amazingly romantic. Stephanie & William have an amazing connection and a beautiful relationship. So glad I got to be a part of this beautiful couple’s big day and to capture all the precious moments.

Stephanie & Willam didn’t want to see each other until Stephanie walked down the aisle however the wanted some time before the ceremony to be with each other. They shared this touching moment without seeing each but just talking and holding hands on either side of the wall. Such a great way to connect before the “I do’s” and the rest of the hectic day.

Stephanie dances with the Cheremosh Ukrainian dance group and she has an incredible talent. The group put on a performance at the wedding reception and it was incredible. Everyone was absolutely wowed including myself! This is one of the reasons why I always recommend that couples choose full day coverage for their wedding day: so we can stay long enough to capture these amazing events!Cheremosh Dance group performs at wedding reception
