As you can probably tell, the season is slowing down for us these days as the weather gets cooler and cooler. But before we hide away for the winter but not fully since we have a few weddings to shoot in the snow, we have a very special wedding to share with you today.
In the summer we had the pleasure of taking Tara and Jon (or as they call each other Pot and lid, because Tara is the Lid to Jon’s Pot!!! Adorableness overload!), for a pre-wedding photo shoot out on a farm here in Montreal. It was a fabulous time for the four of us to get to know each other and take some casual photos for them. Essentially it was a teaser for us for what was to come, and we couldn’t wait to spend time with them on the big day! Every time we got together with them it’s hard not to notice how much Jon cares for Tara and vice versa. Tara and Jon are a one of a kind couple; extremely determined to make their wedding exactly as they imagined, not only for themselves but for all their family and guests. Seeing as this was our first Jewish wedding, we had our work cut out for us!
Magda and I were super excited to finally get to experience a full on Jewish wedding after hearing about how wonderful these ceremonies are. From the traditions to the customs and dances, we loved taking photos of every moment! The wedding took place at Montreal’s Jewish Synagogue Chevra Kadisha where we witnessed Tara and Jon become a couple under the Chuppah. It was very obvious that Tara and Jon’s families are incredibly close and caring. We routinely had tears in our eyes as we listened to all the beautiful wishes and stories everyone shared at the wedding, including the wonderful things the Rabbi had to say throughout the day.
On to the party.
Helmed by the amazing Showmen Band, the reception was a a collection of touching speeches, music, dancing and lots of people being raised into the air on chairs! We can safely say that Tara and Jon created an incredible experience for everyone on their wedding day…including us. So on that note, we would like to thank you for trusting us with our vision to capture every special moment on this once in a lifetime day. We had an absolute blast and if your parents are a testament to a lifetime of happiness…then you have nothing to worry about.
