Strap in for this beautiful, bright and colorful spring wedding! We actually met Kara a few years ago when we did a few head shots for her. When you look through this blog, you will see how energetic and magnetic she is. The camera just loves her. Anyway, a few years later we worked with her sister Kristen doing a few shoots for commercial work with the Plaid Penguin. Then, we were shooting an event where we bumped back into Kara, and learned who her sister was- and basically everything came full circle and we got reminded how “small-world” everything can be. 🙂 Kara met Derek when she was moving out of her condo in southend, and he was moving in next door. They only actually lived next to each other less than a month, but it was just enough for them to meet. She saw him again when she was hanging out with one of the former neighbors at their barbeque, and basically the rest is history. We are so happy for them because not only are they freakin’ adorable, they’re sweet and they just love one another.
Now- you know we’re story tellers, and we don’t shy away from posting as many pictures as it takes for us to tell the whole story. We want you to basically feel like you were there at their wedding- and if you actually WERE there at the wedding, we want you to remember all of it. That being said, Kara and Derek have a special blog post. They knew they wanted to have a small, personal religious ceremony, but also a large, “invite all our friends”, pretty garden ceremony too. So you know what they did? BOTH. Yup. They had their small private religious ceremony earlier in the day for family and close friends. Then in the afternoon, they went to Rosedale to have their outdoor garden ceremony for everyone! This goes to show you really can have your cake and eat it too! Enjoy this beautiful wedding, full of love, color and spring!!!
