Lindsay & Karthik's romance started way back in 2009 when they were both working at Boston Pizza. I'm imagining their eyes locking over a heart shaped pizza and the moon hitting their eyes like a big pizza-pie...but it was more like they'd been working there together for a long time and just struck up an amazing friendship ;) Except the thing about this amazing friendship, is when one of the friends moves far away for work as Karthik did, it became a little more amazing every time they talked to each other. And suddenly, the friendship was a long distance relationship, and the relationship was also really amazing and fast forward to 2017 and these two are meeting each other at the altar. I just love it when two souls are separated and can't live without each other and then a romance starts - it's like the formula for every romantic movie, except these two lucky lovebirds get to live it real life!
The wedding took place this past September, with Lindsay getting ready at the beautiful Osler House B & B in Dundas, Ontario. For all of you brides who are getting married in Dundas or the surrounding area, this is one gorgeous little gem to check out. Close to everything and makes an incredible backdrop for getting ready photos too - I mean, look at that grammaphone! Hair and Makeup was done by the talented ladies at Honor Beauty. And Lindsay's Maggie Sottero dress just fit her like a glove, talk about gorgeous! Lindsay's flowers were done by the talented Petal 2 The Metal Mobile Flower Shop. I adore the use of all the different textures in these bouquets, its so fresh and interesting and perfect for an early September wedding.
The ceremony was held at one of our favourite farm venue's in the area, Dyment's Farm. If you're looking for a fun, laid back wedding where you have the whole place to yourself, Dyment's is definitely worth checking out. I love the fact that Lindsay & Karthik said their vows while overlooking the gorgeous views of the Dundas escarpment. The whole month of their wedding was expertly coordinated by the lovely Jennifer at The Wedding Pixie - a sweeter and more friendly coordinator would be hard to find!
The most interesting aspect of Lindsay & Karthik's wedding, was the infusion of each of their family cultures. Lindsay's dad is Scottish, so of course there were kilts and a bagpiper (Doug Wickham) and then Karthik's family hails from South India. So we've got a beautiful Scottish bride with the gorgeous Mehndi designs on her hands from the celebration night before. I just love it!
Before we continue, I have to give a shout out to the hilarious officiant, Reverend Michael Bittle - you guys, this guy is such a character! He added so much fun to an often nerve-wracking part of the wedding day, I just love it.
Ugh. THESE TWO! So beautiful :)
After the bridal portraits - which miraculously did not get rained on - it was time for the reception party. These two have so much love surrounding them, that's for sure. You can see it in the happy tears and joyful smiles and applause as these two are toasted and celebrated and adored.
It doesn't matter that we've been doing weddings for over 7 years now - I still choke up at Daddy daughter dances. Maybe it's because I'm already crying at the thought of Mike dancing with our daughters on their wedding days (and they are both under the age of 4, so I have lots of time to get myself together!) but I just love them. It's so special. And Lindsay's emotion here, is just beautiful!
One of the best parts about getting married at Dyment's Farm - the campfire!
Was that a gorgeous wedding or what? I hope you guys loved it as much as I do :) If you are interested in having us come out to capture your special day, give me a shout! You can also follow me on Instagram @zekar_photography_studio to see what we've been up to lately.
