Elisabeth & Kirk ~ September 7th, 2013

Congratulations Elisabeth & Kirk!  Wow, where to begin… Elisabeth and Kirk’s wedding was simply amazing.  From color and details, choreographed dances, unique vows in both english and french right down to the first look picnic, this was a very beautiful and unique wedding that I am so thrilled to have been able to be a part of.  It took a little convincing to get Kirk to agree to a first look, but I bet if you asked him now he’ll tell you it was not only a great idea, it’s something that the two of them will treasure as a memory for a lifetime.  What a sweet way to start their wedding day together over wine and treats and of course most importantly, an intimate few moments alone where Kirk and Elisabeth were able to share the excitement over what the day would bring.  Elisabeth and Kirk had so many fun aspects included in their day, the emotional and beautiful wine ceremony, the naked cake from Happy Belly Bakery, the Photo Booth they set up themselves, the paint by number canvas of one of their engagement photos that guests were able to take part in painting, the cookbooks with recipes from family and friends, a visit to Yellowbelly’s with their bridal party after the ceremony to relax and a cocktail reception that was intimate and sweet and allowed everyone to mingle and meet each other.  This truly was a different, relaxed, beautiful and unique wedding for two people who are beautiful and unique themselves.  It was such a pleasure to get to know you both and Francis and I both are very grateful to have the opportunity to share in your special day.  We wish you, your family and friends all the love, joy and laughter that life has to offer.

Jia & Yinnan ~ August 18th, 2013

Congratulations Jia & Yinnan!  What an amazing day from start to finish.  Jia & Yinnan were married here in St. John’s and then travelled home to China to celebrate their wedding with family and friends who couldn’t attend the ceremony here in Newfoundland.  I want to point out that although their family couldn’t attend because of the great distance they still had family to share their day with them as Jia and Yinnan have a wonderful group of Newfoundlanders who have taken them in as family and I can’t imagine that their wedding day could have been more perfect then what it was.  The two of you are such an amazing couple together and I feel incredibly privileged to have been a part of your day and even more blessed to be able to call the two of you friends.  I wish you much joy and happiness in the years to come and look forward to seeing you again soon!
