It really was the perfect day. The sun was shining, blossoms were in full bloom, and their family and friends surrounded them with so much love that the warmth of May felt even warmer. Emily got ready in the home she grew up in and during the chaos that is the getting ready process, she took some time to really live in the moment. She's the kind of person who would let everyone else get ready before even considering herself. She held her sisters baby as he cried, offered that her mother-in-law have her makeup done first, and made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. That's just the type of person Emily is. In her mind nothing could go wrong because all she really cared about was marrying the man she loves. Shawn is someone who can make her laugh in an instant. Someone who she looks forward to curling up on the couch with - whether it be to watch their favourite movies together or to just enjoying one another's company. To see that boy at the end of the aisle waiting for her kept her calm and excited.
During the ceremony, we saw Shawn and Emily stealing quick peaks at one another, squeezing each other's hands with excitement, and laughing. Lots of laughter. One thing I really loved about their wedding was that they wanted to find a way to include both sides of the family evenly. They had the ceremony in Simcoe close to Emily's home and the reception in Hamilton, where Shawn lives. They made their day unique and special to them and in turn created such a memorable day for not only them, but for everyone else as well. The evening was spent dancing to a live band and Shawn and Emily making the rounds, ensuring that everyone was having a great time. That was always their priority. They are such special people.
Shawn and Emily, I wish you an amazing marriage together. I am not only honoured to call you guys friends but want to thank you for having me document this huge and beautiful milestone in your life. And thank goodness you're married now.... wouldn't want those tattoos to go to waste ;) Love you guys!
Emily's ring is gorgeoussss.
Ty snapped this shot of Shawn looking quite dapper (and grown up) in his suit.
One of my favourite photos! She is stunning!This intense kiss lead to Emily losing a button on her dress. All in the name of love ;)How is someone allowed to look this good?
We took a few shots in front of their lovely venue, Liuna Station, located in downtown Hamilton.
