Marilyn+Jean//married//

I would like to give you all a little glimpse into the life, love and family of Marilyn and Jean.  These two are gems; it was an utter joy to connect with them and share in their day.

After a month of not taking weddings, I got swept up in the excitement, nerves and bustle of the wedding day. We were let into a lovely house; greeted by all the family present (some in bath towels and bath robes).  We were let loose in the house to take detail shots and to await the first meeting of the bride.   When she walked in, I knew immediately that I liked her.  Marilyn made our first meeting seem like a long lost reunion, ditching a handshake for a hug.  We were entertained by the talented make up artist and son of the groom, Benjamin; who did an exquisit job and kept us in stitches the whole time.  The preparation time flew by and before I knew it, we were at the church.

The church was buzzing with excitement, Marilyn was met at the limo door by her dapper son telling her she looked pretty, the photogenic cute as a button flower girl was ready for her princess task, and her father stood proud and beaming looking as handsome as ever even with his chemo thinned hair cut (as his wife Dorthoty puts it).  This day was to be a celebration of family and of Marilyn and Jean’s love…and it was that and more.  The large windows at the front of the church let in  bright winter sun and provided a view of bare trees dusted with snow as a backdrop.  The ceremony was emotional and I simply loved when Marilyn teared up through her vows and hugged on to Jean for a moment in between words.  I could tell even before meeting Jean that he was a kind and good man.

The day just got better and better.  I thought Marilyn was a sweet heart, but Marilyn and Jean together were to good to be true.  We had a wonderful time capturing their romance in the elegant rooms and staircase of the Halifax Club.

The reception was decorated beautifully, the food was divine, the speeches brought laughter and tears and the company was wonderful.

Marilyn and Jean I don’t know if you could tell, but we thoroughly enjoyed your day and we can’t wait for you to see the rest of your pictures.  We wish you much  joy and happiness!

    My breath caught in my throat when I scrolled down these exquisite pictures. Chera and Matt, your attention to detail and incredible quality of work are exceptional. I soooooo wish we had invested in good photography for our own wedding twelve years ago! I would love to hire you in the future for family photos. Marilyn and Jean’s beautiful personalties and love for each other were perfectly captured in your shots. Bravo!
