It was a beautiful, sunny August morning when Mike arrived at the Sheraton Hotel in Hamilton. Rose was busy having her makeup done, and slipping into her beautiful lace wedding dress. The dress fit her perfectly, with delicate details and lace overlay, its femininity was a fitting extension of Rose's gentle and sweet personality.
The women in the room helped Rose slip into her dress, and put the finishing touches on. Her hair looked glorious, thick and dark and shining down her back in perfect loose curls.
The men were busy following an Armenian tradition where Rose's brother slips some money into her shoes as a sign of good luck and happy start to her new life as a wife.
Next we were off to the church, St. Patricks Cathedral, one of the oldest churches in Hamilton. Built in 1877, the stunning architecture seems to embrace Rose as she walks down the aisle to her handsome husband-to-be, Tom, as he waits for her with smiling eyes and a happily nervous smile.
Finally, Rose & Tom are married, smiling and relaxed and really excited. Having gotten the most nerve wracking part over, its time to head over to the reception at Geraldo's at LaSalle Park in Burlington.
Rose and Tom are truly a sweet couple. Both of them are a little shy and reserved, but when together they bring out the best in each other and truly only have eyes for the other. I just love the way that Rose gazes up at her handsome husband, as he looks adoringly down at her. So much is said between these two in the subtleties of love and life.
The only downside to having shoes full of good luck money :)
I just love this idea, a great way to celebrate a couples first midnight together, with sparklers and revelry!
A lot of our couples are doing their first dance as part of their entrance celebration. This is a beautiful way to kick of the feast! :)
Rose and Tom met and fell in love while they were both planting flower beds, while working for the city. I can't resist making a reference to flowers, as Mike & I both wish this lovely couple a beautiful life as their love blossoms and their future unfolds!
