Michelle & Mark - Carmen's Hotel Wedding, Hamilton, Ontario

September 12, 2015  •  1 Comment

After the fun family engagement shoot we did with Michelle, Mark and their adorable little ones, we knew that their wedding day was going to be just as fun, if not more so. We were right. Michelle & Mark planned their wedding at Carmen's Hotel perfectly, with an impressive mix of both classic elegance and fun, kid-friendly touches. The whole family is a major fan of Iron Man (as seen below!) and they incorporated their love of movies into their wedding in a subtle, light hearted way that really showed their personalities.

What I love the most is the attention and focus that was paid to the blending of their two families. The wedding was not just about the party or the gathering, it was about pledging their love and commitment together, as a big new beautiful family. I am used to seeing the beautiful unity candle ceremonies that are common, but I just adored the idea of how each of them put a little goldfish into one big family sized fish bowl. 

And at the end? Batman showed up. :D

Take a look at some of my favourite moments from the day!

Mark and Michelle's wedding was absolutely perfect. The attention to detail in every little element was so nice... Right down to the candy bar and the super hero socks. We were privileged to sit with Wonder Woman and Batman for dinner. Even though every detail was so well done and over the top, everyone still felt relaxed and appreciated by Mark and Michelle. It felt like they were celebrating all of us as family and friends as much as we were celebrating their union.

They also love their kids so much... If you didn't know them, you wouldn't know that 2 are his anger 2 are hers...they are truly a family. And it showed in the way the kids were just as much involved as their parents. The love this family has for one another shows so well in the photography. Great job at capturing those intimate moments.

Michelle was a stunning bride. Mark didn't look so bad himself, either.
