Six years ago, Maria and Reinhard’s lives changed forever. It was Maria’s cousin’s birthday party, where Reinhard has also attended. As Maria walked into the room, he couldn’t take his eyes off her. She was the prettiest girl Reinhard had ever seen.
Reinhard later planned his proposal to Maria on a trip to Cuba. Maria recalls how bad of a liar Reinhard was and quickly found out his plan. Reinhard aborted his mission. One night on their bed laid flowers in an arrangement that spelled out “will you marry me?”. As Reinhard got up from his knee to hug her, she realized how hard his heart was beating. SWOON!
From Maria and Reinhard’s love story, I knew that their wedding day would be electric. Their love for each other is true and strong. Maria and Reinhard had their first look in the park of Fairy Lake. It was a chilly morning, but their warm love shone through. It was beautiful to witness and even better to capture. Their wedding ceremony that followed was just as beautiful. I look back at these images and I can’t help but think how amazing they are because these were real emotions and real moments.
Maria and Reinhard had both their wedding ceremony and reception at Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket. On Maria and Reinhard’s wedding day it was freezing cold and pouring with rain. The greenhouse made it the perfect venue for the garden look without worrying about the bad weather. The reception space was gorgeously decorated by Maria and her bridesmaid DIY Pinterest projects. It looked absolutely amazing! But we all couldn’t take our eyes off Maria and Reinhard who were absolutely glowing.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Maria and Reinhard for trusting me to capture your wedding day. You both have big hearts and are just perfect for each other. I wish you so many years of love and happiness together!
