Terrace On The Green is a beautiful wedding venue in Mississauga. But what made this one of my favourite venues was this particular wedding. Stefanie and Victor were glowing all day and it was so amazing to see them smiling non stop. Weddings should be fun, the planning is done, all your friends are with you, and family is looking on in sheer happiness.
My old friend Mother Nature was with us the whole way. Grey skies (which I actually LOVE to shoot in) threatened rain but didn’t actually do anything about it. Wind came and went but only blew the gorgeous yellow leaves around enough to create the perfect fall day. Lastly the temperature was perfect. Warm enough for the bride to wear a stunning lace dress and cool enough for a groom to wear his suit and not melt.
With family, friends and about a dozen teachers looking on, these two made it official. Mr. and Mrs. Tam. Has a ring to it doesn’t it!
So many wonderful things about this day to name but one of my favourite was the cake topper. If you saw the engagement session we did earlier this year, you will see the same two characters but in everyday clothes vs the wedding dress and suit found on the cake toppers. They are cute little characters that strike a very similar resemblance to Stefanie and Victor. If you haven’t checked out the engagement session see it HERE. Now that I’m thinking about it the whole cupcake table might be my favourite. I have a weakness for cupcakes. Especially when they look that yummy! These ones in particular had two Chinese characters on them – red is the symbol for “Love” and the blue is the character for Victor’s last name “Tam”. Such a cute idea.
As I sit here choosing the images to share, I came across The Oathing Stone that was used in the ceremony. I love all the personal touches that each wedding includes. Each has a meaning to the couple and makes their wedding unique. The Oathing Stone is an old Scottish tradition where the Bride and Groom place their hands upon a stone while saying their wedding vows. It was thought to be the best way to express your solemn promise in physical form. Taken from the ancient Celtic custom of setting an oath in stone. Kind of romantic if you ask me!
I am truly honoured to have been a part of this day and look forward to many more life events with these two sweethearts.
