It’s not often that we are truly affected by weather on any given wedding day, and luckily we fared pretty well on the day of Joy and Aaron’s wedding considering the storm that came through. However, November 7th will be a day many wedding professionals will talk about for years to come. We heard all kinds of stories about the rain and the wind, and weddings that were moved indoors, second lines that happened in the rain, the list goes on. Joy and Aaron had originally considered having their entire wedding at Woldenberg Park by the river. They were extremely grateful that they didn’t go through with that plan! The only part of their day that was affected was the first look as we weren’t able to do any of the photos outdoors, and they had to cancel the pedi-cab ride that was going to take us around for a few photo ops. Thankfully though, everything else was planned for inside the Westin Hotel. This meant a dry bride and groom, wedding party and guests!
We didn’t get to meet Joy and Aaron in person before the wedding, but we had done a skype session with them when we first met. We felt like we pretty much knew them when we arrived to start the day though. Joy was a bundle of joy! 🙂 She was very happy, and very excited, and very mellow about the weather and any other last minute details. I love when a bride can keep things in perspective. It’s very refreshing. And Aaron was calm too, I think he just wanted Joy to be happy with everything. They were absolutely adorable together.
The traditional Jewish ceremony was lovely. I particularly loved their Ketubah – it was beautiful! After all of the formalities were complete, the rest of the evening was fantastic! The energy in the ballroom was great. And I had to keep my eyes peeled for Joy because she was bopping all around the ballroom. She was so practical with cute boots as her preferred wedding day shoe, so it was easy for her to dance and move around.
Thank you, thank you for allowing us to share in your day. Enjoy!
