Ava + Norris – {E-Session}

Karen + Scott

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Karen: It’s really hard to choose one, there were so many moments full of love and happiness and I was concentrating the whole time to remember it all! One of the most memorable moments might have been the first look. I had had the opportunity to “spy” on Scott from the bridal suite and he looked so handsome, but something about walking towards him, knowing he was so nervous and excited to see me, anticipating the look on his face when he saw me, I was completely overwhelmed with emotion. I almost think that because it was raining, there were fewer people around and it made the moment more special for me. Beyond that, I think first walking into the hall and seeing everyone I love and care about and particularly Scott, waiting at the end, was incredible. Makes my heart beat just thinking about it!
Scott: Definitely seeing karen at the first glance. I don’t think i’ve ever felt so full of nervous energy in my life! She looked gorgeous and i can remember thinking, how’d i pull this off!?

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Karen: I think everyone says this, but really trying to be present and mindful about everything and not sweating the small stuff. The day really does fly by but I tried my best to slow down every moment and commit it to memory. I think also, depending on what your schedule is, having all photos done before the ceremony (including a first look if that makes sense for you) is really important. After the ceremony, all I wanted to do was say hi to everyone, give hugs all around, so I’m glad we didn’t have to go do more “official” photos!
Scott: Just chill out and enjoy the day, it goes by extremely quickly, so don’t sweat the little details. Everything works out for the best and taking each moment in is what’s important.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Karen: I think there was just so much laughter throughout our wedding. I remember laughing a lot through the ceremony which was amazing (especially when I said, “so many tears” during the vows,…while crying). Similarly, our MC’s were absolutely amazing. When they came out in homemade Jedi outfits and lightsabres, I nearly died laughing. But secretly, I think the funnies moment was when we were cutting the cake. We did the whole, “cut the cake together, pose with it, feed each other” thing, but then people requested that we mock cut the cake again for more photos. So we did, and then the knife broke! I just made the most hilarious/terrible face and reached for Scott, as he said, “this is why we can’t have nice things” which just made me laugh so hard.
Scott: When the knife fell apart after the second pass at the cake cutting. There have been some photos of karen’s face when it fell apart in her hands and it was priceless.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Karen: I don’t think I would change much! We talked about how, oh it would have been nice if it wasn’t raining so we could have had the ceremony outside, but then we realized with all the events going on, there would have been SO many people around (I already got heckled a bunch of times in the rain, positive heckles, but still) and it would have taken away with how intimate and amazing the ceremony was indoors. It was pretty much a perfect night and we had an unbelievable amount of fun. The best!
Scott: Nope, there were a few hiccups, but they all came together to create an event we’ll be able to look back on happily for the rest of our lives.

Elaine + Peter – {Married}

May always has unpredictable weather, especially this year.  Who could have thought we still have a 4 degrees day in May?  Regardless, that didn’t stop us from having fun in capturing the story of Elaine and Peter on their big day!!  Let the story begins!!!ElainePeter_20140518081741-2 ElainePeter_20140518085814 ElainePeter_20140518101403-2 ElainePeter_20140518084126ElainePeter_20140518101930

Usually when the groom and his men are having their door games, the bride will be hidden away from the action.  But in this case, the bride was literally 3 feet away from the men, separated by a thin door.  And that’s the reaction I caught her peeking out from the room.  CUTE! =)

Elaine & Peter: Mistakes make memorable weddings, so don’t over-plan and just enjoy the process.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Elaine & Peter: Andy Bello’s legendary speech.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Elaine: We missed out on a lot of activities because we took a long time to change. 
Peter: We messed up our first dance. That was the only regret.

Meet my first couples of 2014, Victoria and Mihir!  Gosh, they’re one BEAUTIFUL couples!  And when I say this, I’m not only referring to their appearance, but also their character.  I still remember the fun of learning so much about them even in my first meeting with them.  It is their sweetness and their love to God that draw me close to them.

Cecilia + Charlton:

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Cecilia: At the Banquet when Charlton all of sudden went missing and surprised me with a video that he made.. More to that, he showed up again in a SUPERMAN suit, being my real superman!
Charlton: When I passed all the challenges and finally get to see Cecilia in the Chinese gown… knowing that starting at that moment and for the rest of the day and our lives, we will always be together.

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Cecilia: Discover Pinterest! It is an amazing source for inspiration for your wedding! but once you have decided on the colour/ dress/ theme/ décor/ cake etc.. move on and DO NOT go on pinterest again!  You will end up thinking way too much and wanting to do more than you can manage….
Charlton: Go crazy!  Do something that you will never ever do again. (warning, it may be embarrassing in hindsight, but it will definitely be memorable and worthwhile!)

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Cecilia: Having a huge fight with my mom in the morning while Charlton was about to come into the room and “pick me up”… It was hurtful because oh man!  It’s the worst time to fight.. but it was really funny because during that time, Charlton was yelling out his crazily funny “love vows”..  he literally made me LOL and brighten up everything. I will forever remember what he “promised”..
Charlton: At the end of the night when Cecilia sat on the ground next to the bar… she was talking non-stop but I couldn’t understand a word she was saying.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Cecilia: Everything was special and perfectly fine the way they were because our Heavenly father was in charge. I wouldn’t want to change a thing.
Charlton: The day was too perfect to be real, not because of our planning, but because God had poured out His blessings to us.
