When I am excited about something, it’s hard for me to contain that energy. I just want to scream it from the rooftops – and really, there is no better rooftop in Toronto than at the Thompson Hotel where Cherise and Ed’s wedding recently took place. You may recognise this crew because last summer I photographed her brother Rachid & Christie’s wedding and a few years before that, it was Faisal & Laurie’s big day. At this point, I feel that these people are an extra family of mine and it’s pretty awesome. Cherise and Ed make my heart melt. These two have that love that you often only see in the movies. They are in it together, holding hands and laughing the entire way and it is such a beautiful thing to witness (and photograph!).
The one thing that you cannot control on your wedding day is the weather and I always tell that to my brides and grooms. It will work out, I promise them, and it really usually always does. On Cherise & Ed’s wedding day, we were set to have an outdoor ceremony with that beautiful Toronto skyline as the backdrop. As the bridal party walked down the aisle, the raindrops began. No problem – it just gave us all an excuse to get closer together and have a truly intimate wedding ceremony which made the day all that more awesome. Cherise & Ed, you two are incredible people and I am so excited for you and this next adventure that you are on! x
