Lauren and Chris’ Pillar and Post wedding day could not have been any better. Despite it being rainy all week prior to their wedding, spring came early and it was warm enough for their wedding ceremony to be outdoors in the rose garden. Bright pink magnolias bloomed from above and provided such a magical fairytale feel to their wedding.
I knew Lauren and Chris’ wedding day would be so much fun, having photographed their engagement session at McMaster University the same time last year. We were even lucky to have blossoms then on that cold April day! McMaster University in Hamilton was actually where they met ten years ago and they have been together ever since! We were so lucky to come across some more blossoms for their wedding day in a beautiful orchard. It was such an intimate and romantic setting. I was so happy that Lauren and Chris agreed to come out to this spot at the last minute as these blossoms give such a whimsical touch!
Their wedding reception was filled with speeches for their loved ones. Lauren and Chris are actually huge basketball fanatics and are season ticket holders to the Raptors. In Chris’ best man speech, he related how they can incorporate the rules of basketball in their marriage in that they win as a team and lose as a team. So true! At the end of the night, the wedding party came out for some fun sparkler photos in the rose garden. It was the perfect ending to this perfect day!
