I’ve been sitting here for a few minutes trying to figure out what to write.  It’s hard to express just how special this wedding was for us, and how wonderful Julia & Richard are. I first met Julia at a class for new wedding planners, and after going to a preview of ‘Bridesmaids’ together we became fast friends.  Julia is one of the most positive and compassionate people I’ve ever met. And she and Richard are such a warm and loving couple.  I was thrilled when Richard asked me to help him propose to Julia last year (he’s quiet, but incredibly romantic), and it’s been such a fun experience to help Julia plan her wedding (with the hashtag #juliasweddingfeaturingrichard) and finally to see them tie the knot at the end of October.  Big shout out to all the groomsmen who were SUPER fun to hang out with!

I could go on and on, but I’ll let the photos do the talking!  The girls all got ready at my house, and I’ll admit it was kind of strange after the wedding to cull through images from my own house (and my own face!).  Michael did a fantastic job on these photos, especially with the added pressure of Julia being a wedding planner (Once Upon Your Day), and his A-type wife being a bridesmaid.

Our second shooter Christina caught me…I was a little emotional during the ceremony!

Alex (on the left – one of Julia’s maids of honour) is next up to get married! We will be braving the cold on New Year’s Eve out on a farm for Alex & Devin’s wedding.

We can’t forget Charlie, who even got his own boutonniere! He was a big part of the proposal so he had to be there for some of the wedding photos.

WOW.  I got to watch Janine from faBLOOMosity create Julia’s bouquet and it was a fantastic experience. She is so creative, and there are so many unique and interesting flowers and plants in this bouquet. Stunning.

I had to get in on the action a little bit.  When I showed this photo to a friend, the response was “Haha you would”.  Of course I did. I couldn’t help myself. (iphone photo by Michael)
