Ashley + Kevin
Intimate Urban Wedding at The Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar
Where do I even begin to explain Ashley + Kevin’s beautiful intimate urban wedding. To say it was a day filled with so much love is an understatement, it was more than just a wedding it truly was the joining of two families, united and bonded together with big love.
Every little detail of this day was so thought out, from the little gifts that were exchanged, to having their parents stand up next to them as their wedding party. It was so romantic and beautiful.
In the morning, Kevin surprised Ashley with a video that was full of her family and friends wishing her a wonderful day and welcoming her into their family, to end it he appeared on the screen to tell her how much he loved her and how he couldn’t wait to see her walk down the aisle with her dad (yup, I was bawling) he then surprised her with a stunning Dallas Larose custom painting. Ashley had gifted Kevin with a handwritten diary that she had kept since the first day they met. Journaling their journey together up till that very day.
Before the ceremony begun, Ashley asked me to capture a first look between her and her father which was to sweet to even put into words. The two of them cried and embraced each other. It was a tender and raw moment, a dad seeing his little girl all grown up and ready to be married.
To end the night, the bride and groom invited their parents and siblings to the dance floor having their first dance song playing from their wedding as they joined them on the dance floor.
I truly enjoyed witnessing this type of love, the day felt so relaxed and genuine. There was no hustle to the day. Ashley told me she wanted to make sure her wedding day was spent with family and friends, celebrating together, to soak in every moment and truly be present to take it all in.
A wedding is truly about family and friends, it’s not about the decor or how much money you spend, it’s who you have with you. About who is standing next to you, as husband and as wife.
Thank you for choosing me to capture your beautiful intimate wedding. It was an honour to be there to watch to soul mates celebrate their love!
