Scarlet and Stennette met while he was working at a barber shop. Scarlet had just moved to Toronto, wanting a fresh new do. Despite the rules about dating a client, Scarlet and Stennette started dating. Their love for each other is radiant. They are always full of laughter and adoration when around each other and it is such a pleasure to witness. Scarlet and Stennette chose to get married at Columbus United Church, a cute church with beautiful old architecture and stained glass. One of my favourite photos out of the whole wedding was the moment Scarlet and her father embraced right after the ceremony. What an incredibly beautiful moment.
We went to Deer Creek Golf Course for their family, bridal party and bride and groom portraits. I was pretty amazed when Stennette offered to fluff Scarlet’s dress during our portrait session, a task I normally ask my assistant to help me out with. But Stennette insisted, saying he knew how important the dress was having grown up around them all the time as his mother made them! Amazing! I am so in love with the fact that family members have put hundreds of hours into adding the beading onto Scarlet’s Vera Wang bridal dress. She complemented it with a long cathedral veil made of shimmer tulle.
Their wedding reception at Deer Creek was decorated with their colour scheme of shades of blue and grey. Scarlet wasn’t the kind of girl who daydreamed about her wedding, so when they decided to throw a wedding it was on the condition that it would be unique. Because Scarlet has always loved the Moroccan/Arabic style, they chose blue lanterns and drapery. I love their head table backdrop which made the perfect setting for their kisses whenever guests called for one!
Scarlet and Stennette, you two have an incredible love and I am in awe! I wish you both nothing but the best together!
