All You Need is Love! Leora & Cliff are Married!!

I said it before about Leora and Cliff and I’ll say it again — these two are so in love and their love just radiates! This wedding was so full of love, and not just between the bride and groom, but everyone around them. They took the time to make everyone feel special, and the love came back at them 150 times over.

I was so honoured that these two wonderful friends asked me to capture the memories of their wedding day and I think you’ll agree that the love just shines through in these photos –  between friends, parents, siblings and of course between the bride and groom.

Here are a few of my favourites from the day! Enjoy!!

These two decided to do a “first look” so that they could see eachother before the ceremony, get some pictures taken ahead of time, and then have time to enjoy with their guests during the reception and cocktail hour. They took a quiet moment down by the water to see eacother for the first time. Can’t you just feel the love?

The sign in the photo below was hand-made by one of the bridesmaids! Totally awesome!

Cliff and Leora are from two different religious and cultural backgrounds and did a beautiful job of incorporating some of their unique traditions into their wedding. Cliff’s family sent these traditional Dutch clogs from Holland.

…. and in Leora’s Jewish tradition, the bride and groom begin the reception with the “Hora” — basically all of the guests lift them up on chairs and celebrate their marriage with a loud and rowdy dance. It was so much fun!


Congratulations Leora & Cliff – Wishing you all the love you felt on your wedding day to last a lifetime!
