“You know why I love Marsha?” Steve said to me, as we were walking towards the spot where he would see his bride for the first time. “Because she is…” he paused, emotions welling up in his eyes. “The light in every room we go in. She is everything. She is so beautiful, and bright and she just loves her friends so deeply.” He shook his head in amazement and love for his soon-to-be-wife and took his place to wait for her, as she was about to come around the corner and meet him in the middle of a bridge at Paletta Mansion, in Burlington.
Rewind a little bit. It was a hot, lovely day in August and Marsha and Steve were getting married after being together for 10 years. Steve was downstairs at Paletta, doing what groomsmen do best – grooming.
Marsha arrived, beautiful, glowing and surrounded by her amazing (pumpin’) bridesmaids and friends – and a couple of really beautiful little flower girls.
One of my favourite moments of the day:
Next, it was time for the ‘reveal’. I don't really need to explain these next few pictures, it was just such a beautiful moment...
This is one of my favourites, because Steves hand is practically vibrating with excitement :)
After they (and all of us lucky enough to be there) dried their tears, we did a few formals.But for this fun loving couple, formals weren’t super formal, which we totally love.
Their ceremony was held outside, with beautiful Lake Ontario in the background. As Jake Dudas strummed his guitar, everything fell into place and before we knew it, Marsha and Steve were officially mister and mrs. Check this out - I posted this on our Facebook fan page, but thought I'd pop it on here too - makes me laugh every time!
As you can see, the groomsmen were still doing what they do best – being ridiculous.
And I have to give a shout out to The Original Posie for making such a pretty and dramatic bouquet!
At the end of the night, it was time for the first dance, Marsha and Steve are a couple who will definitely love eachother till the end…and then everyone busted a move in true, sophisticated, Nova Scotian style!
We had the best time with these guys, their friends and family were hilarious and we truly enjoyed ourselves!
