Sarah & Benjamin are married

When I first met Sarah and Benjamin, they told me they wanted a simple, small brunch wedding with 50 of their closest family and friends. My ears heard brunch and I immediately knew these two were amazing.

They were trying to figure out how they could have their wedding at Riverdale Farm as that is their favourite spot in the city. Since the Farm does not hold such events, they thought of the next best thing. They rented a house just walking distance from the Farm in the beautiful neighbourhood of Riverdale for their reception, and held the ceremony in Wellesley Park.

These two kept me smiling the entire day. When they asked if we could photograph them putting temporary tattoos on in the morning, I knew it was going to be a special day. Sarah and Benjamin sealed their love for vegetables with tattoos close to their hearts on their wedding day. A tomato for her, and broccoli for him.

Upon arriving at the ceremony at the park, we found out that they were to be officiated by the same person who married Jin and I four years ago! And instead of throwing flower petals at the end of the ceremony, they threw lavender (the sweetest!). Brunch was held at the house and spilled out onto the street with friendly neighbours congratulating the family and friends (and some tried to get invited to the affair as well!).

Thank you for inviting me to be part of your day Sarah and Benjamin! In my heart, it was the perfect wedding.
