I’ve just started this blog post and I’m already out of words. Ugh. I don’t even know how to start this because… well… it’s them… and they’re incredible people who had an epicly awesome day. Okay. Heeeeere weeee goooo!
Tsone (pronounced Shō-nāy) couldn’t tie his tie because he was so nervous. Luckily Abe came in for the win.
Christy (pronounced Kris-tē ;)) with her mom while reading Tsone’s letter before the wedding.
The men were all asked to buy royal blue suits. Abe and Timi laid their suits on the bed and then noticed how well they matched. Ani heard this and proudly walked in with his own suit proclaiming, “I’m about to nail this!”
“Watch it be black…” Timi jokingly said under his breath.
Ani then throw it down on top of the others and and shouted, “BAM!”
“NOOOO, ANI, NOOOO!!!!” -Timi and Abe
“Wha?! I could have swore it was blue.” -Ani
Oh my goodness Christy, you were such a beautiful bride!
These two had the sweetest ceremony.
Tsone is a photographer himself (I met him at one of my workshops yeeeears ago) and at one point he was looking over at me during the ceremony when the officiant had asked him a yes or no question. Tsone was too distracted. I looked at him and mouthed, “say yes!” Tsone realized he was supposed to be looking at Christy and said, “Yes!” followed by, “Sorry! I’m just so distracted by her beauty!” Good save Tsone.*
*I mean, it waaaaaas a good save until I just told this story! 😉
This is often my favorite part of a wedding: WEEEE’RE MARRRRIED!!!!
The ceremony started pretty late so by the time it was photo time, the sun was setting. D’oh! So…. Meg$$$ and I did what we doooo! We quiiiiickly powered through family photos (I just looked at the time stamps: 11 minutes. WHOA!) and the wedding party (8 minutes) so that we had enough light for the bride & groom.
….and I have absolutely ZERO regrets about that! My favorite below.
Have I mentioned I love this duo!?
Because we were on such a tight timeline, pretty much all of the bride & groom photos that we took… they never left that rock. I would re-adjust their pose periodically. Megan and I moved around them and switched lenses to diversify the images as much as possible.
THAT OTTAWA SUNSET THO?!
Christy’s sister Alexandra incorporated the shoe game into her toast. If you’ve never heard of the shoe game before, click here. I’ve only seen it a few times and every time I laugh.
The parent dances.
The dance floor was full allllll night!
That’s Christy’s momma Rose dancing with her favorite of the Boyo brothers. Tsone is having none of it!
From left to right: Christy (duh), Christy’s cousin Tamara (who flew in from Haiti!), Tsone’s dad Paul (told you he looked like his dad!), and Tsone’s sister Toju (who looks just like her brother Abe).
Behind the scenes
Don’t mind me… I’m blennnnndinnnnng!
