How in the world do a tackle a blog post about a wedding where the love and enthusiasm for life was as vibrant as I’d ever seen it?
Well I’m going to start by giving Shannon Grant Photography a ::blog hug:: She was the person that got this big love fest started. PLEASE read about Jenn & Erick here on her blog.
In short Jenn and Erick thought they’d have to give up their plans to get married to attend to Erick’s cancer diagnosis. Shannon, with the help of lots of friends put on a spectacular winter wedding at Willowdale Estate.
My blog is going to spotlight a few moments where this team, of +25 different wedding vendors came together to give a deserving couple a wedding.
Here’s Shannon rocking out with her Nikon and fancy camera strap on the dancefloor.
Above are Moira & Natalie of Whim Events that put this wedding on a fast track to AMAZING!
Jenn & Erick shared a First Look moment at Willowdale Estate.
We wore purple ribbons to support Erick!
Whim Events touched every corner of Willowdale with little bits of green and gorgeous florals.
Strawberry Small Works Studio added elegance to the guests experience
Invaluable to a wedding day are the closest friends and family around you. Looking phenomenal in dresses by David’s Bridal and Tuxedos by Sposabella Bridal
Frederick’s Pastries made a delicious cake…. it was later loving smeared across Erick’s face 🙂
Jeff & Amanda of Jeff Brouillet Films Inc. did a crazy amazing job. They edited a same day video we watched at the end of the night. WOW. I did my best to capture that through my own tears.
Each and every single person below contributed greatly in making this day more beautiful and more memorable. I’m happy to have played a small part of that.
