Kitchener Filipino Wedding Photography | Melissa & Adam Wedding

Woohooooo, you’re married!!! Finally 🙂

I remember when these two contacted and met with me over two years ago.  I didn’t realize that by the time they’d get married we would have many different Filipino connections.  I felt right at home with all these people.  For two years in a row I photographed Catherine’s (Melissa’s MOH) family at Christmas.  Then last November I shot Jo & Carmelita’s wedding.  When I put them up on the blog, Melissa messaged me saying that her mom was in a few of the photos!! I had no idea!

Anyway, it was a wedding I’ve been looking forward to for so long. The day came and went… and it was beautiful. They were both so calm, relaxed, and totally enjoyed their day! The rain even went away by the time we were ready to leave the church! Parfait!

Thanks again for letting us be part of your day… it’ll be hard to forget all the lovely words from the speeches, and your crazy wedding party! It was special and fun 🙂

Check out this short film of their special day!

Check out Melissa’s shoes!!  She was an “all comfort” bride… she didn’t wear the runners all day, but I love how confident enough she was to wear them!!

I love the idea of donating to a foundation or organization on behalf of each guest… especially when there’s a special connection to the organization.


Congrats to both of you!! ENJOY YOUR JAMAICAN honeymoon and don’t forget your water shoes 😉


A big THANKS to the people who helped make this day happen:

Hall Decorations – Decorating Dreams

Cake – Norris Bakery (beautiful cake!)

Flowers and bridesmaids dresses – Simply Elegant Events (essentially Catherine the MOH and her mom!)

DJ – Sound Samsation Entertainment (great job guys!!)

Kitchener’s Brides Ball 2009

The 2nd annual bride’s ball was a success.  Many attended, won prizes, danced the night away, donated lots of money, ate great food provided by great vendors… SUCCESS!  All involved (and I know I will forgot to mention everyone) donated a lot of their time, money, effort for a great cause – The Grand River Hospital, breast cancer screening.  For some of us, we know all too well what cancer (breast cancer) can do to a person and so on Friday we were encouraged once again to get ourselves checked.

Here are a few of my favourites from the night!

For those of you who are wondering who puts this great event on???  It’s Anne Warren and her amazing team from The Wedding Ring.  Anne’s the one who interviewed me for MY REVIEW on theweddingring!  She’s fab and so is her daughter (you know I’ll never forget her Anne!! She was too cute!) 🙂 ha!

Because of the dark nightclub lighting… I was in search for any kind of dramatic light.
