Sherene and Tony have been friends for many years having met at church. They always hung out in groups but never thought about dating each other. It was only when Tony was on a trip to China that he realised how much he missed Sherene when he didn’t have a way to communicate with her! It was then when he decided to pursue her – so much that he chased her all the way to Japan while she was on a trip with a girlfriend to declare his feelings for her. So sweet!
Even though Tony knew that Sherene was the one fairly early on in the relationship and prepared a ring, a trip to San Francisco they took a 3-hour hike up a mountain in Yosemite National Park. It was there where Tony popped the question. Little did Tony know that there was a rattlesnake by his feet and luckily, Sherene saved his life! That’s when Tony absolutely knew for certain she was a keeper!
Their Liberty Grand wedding could be described as pink perfection! Although it was late May, we were able to score some pretty blooms for their wedding photos in downtown Toronto that perfectly matched their fuschia and light pink wedding theme! They incorporated both contemporary and traditional elements into their wedding decor. Before their wedding ceremony, they had a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony at the venue. During their wedding ceremony, they included a small worship (singing) session which was really special. The Liberty Grand was the absolutely perfect venue to hold their wedding. It was a very classic venue their romantic wedding vision which was decorated with beautiful cherry blossom and roses.
Although it poured with rain for most of the day – through these photos you’ll never know. Sherene and Tony only focused on one thing and that was – to be married to each other. They didn’t let the weather get to them at all, in fact, they saw all the positive in it. Sherene told me that when one door closed, another one opened for the better. Everything worked out for them and I think that their attitude is right on. They had the best day together and that’s all that mattered!
Thank you so much Sherene and Tony for having us capture this magical day of yours!
