Some of you may remember this couples amazing E session I blogged a few weeks back. Nestled in the beautiful grounds at the Paletta House in Burlington, ON this couple couldn’t have asked for a better evening.
Well the same can be said for their wedding day. I was so excited to see Shu Shu all dolled up and in her dress. They decided to keep things very down to earth and simple, getting married in the early afternoon at the Ancaster Mill in Ancaster, ON. Surrounded by only very close friends and family, as most of their families were back home in their countries of birth (China and Sri Lanka) Shu Shu and Chin decided to walk each other down the aisle. To say that I love this idea is an understatement. I loved the feeling of the two of them taking the walk down the aisle hand in hand. They took an almost scary moment for most brides, having everyone staring at you, and chose to do it together, enjoying every second they could while being in the moment of now.
Thats what I learned by getting to know Shu Shu and Chin. Live in the now. Take each breath with feeling and purpose. I guess thats what happens when you live away from the love of your life for over a year and having to rely on modern technology like Skype and FaceTime to connect with them. They taught me not to take moments with your family for granted as it could be a very long time before you see them again and wanting them to be present at a special moment in your life is not always a possibility.
Noe speaking of Skype and Face Time its a good thing we do live in a time where this is something to enjoy. Shu Shu and Chin took a little moment out of their lunch time reception to step outside and Skype with Chinthaka’s father who was back home in Sri Lanka. Talk about amazing.
I would like to now share with all of you some of my favourite moments from their very special day.
Yours in blog & photog,
