Armenian Toronto Wedding
Rita and Aris’s wedding was wonderful! I know, you read that on other blogs and every wedding is wonderful, but truly this wedding was so wonderful! Full of love and happiness!!!
Their turn came to have the wedding of their dreams…they met at a wedding as groomsmen and bridesmaid of the wedding party!
These two are so in love….their perfect Saturday night is doing anything together.
Their wedding moments and the love between the two of them is out of this world. Truly two individuals that are very strong apart and even more so together. The type that I can’t get enough of. Happiness and love!!!
As well, I also had the joy and excitement of photographing an Armenian wedding. I adore them!!! Full of traditions that are by no means same old traditional. I will explain….
I hope no one gets offended when I write, Armenians are crazy, because even though Rita herself said it, they are crazy in a way that I can say no other wedding is like this. Here are my reasons:
- It was a very hot and humid summer day, but that didn’t matter all. In Rita’s parents home before the ceremony, she probably had 70 people inside the townhouse, along with the musicians and their instruments. As well as me, second photographer and a videographer with a large camera! But they didn’t just sit, stand or watch, everyone was singing and dancing and doing something. I felt like an octopus moving around up and down and around trying to get photos. Then I realized a hand, arm and people in the photos were real, it was all a part of the story.
- Rita did not complain once, about being too hot, tired, too much commotion…she loved every second of it!
- Dancing, dancing, and more dancing….from the moment they entered their Parkview Manor ballroom, they danced…Armenian weddings they dance the entire time! The music was the loudest of any wedding! Everyone was up dancing before dinner and the whole night (and it was a Sunday).
- They are full of life and nothing is missed! Rita and Aris had every detailed planned to perfection. Come wedding day, they were there to enjoy every little bit of it….that is what counts!
Lots of laughter, dancing, beauty, details, love and family all around. The culture of Armenian’s is full of excitement! I love the dancing…they dance forever!!!
The photos taken at York Universities Glendon College were so perfect for them…it is gorgeous there and all to ourselves!
The Parkview Manor was stunning with all the decor and filled to the brim with guests and a party!
Everyone did such a stunning job to make Rita and Aris’s wedding a dream come true for them. I am so honored to have been a part of their beautiful Armenian wedding celebrations! Will truly miss all the talks with Rita about her plans for her wedding and getting to know them. Such a delight to be with these two love birds and document their glorious happy wedding day!
Much love, Heather xo
