Anh & Russell – A Wedding Love Story in Windsor, Ontario
On a hot and steamy June day, we gathered up the team and set out to capture the wedding of Anh and Russell. I had met with Anh and Russell on a few occasions before the big day. With Windsor being the small city that it is, it turns out that Anh and I shared a number of common friends. And so… after getting to know them and being there on the wedding day … it felt like we were part of the family.
In the morning, Samson and I joined Russell and the guys as they got ready for the day. The boys got dressed and shared a champagne toast. Russell opened up a gift from Anh and then went outside for some photos with his motorcycle. We then ventured over and joined the girls. The house was busy with last minute tasks and preparations. With the help of her bridesmaids, Anh put on her dress and greeted her family who was waiting to see her.
The ceremony was held at the Parkwood Gospel Temple…. the largest and most epic church we’ve ever seen! Russell is a musician, and for the wedding procession he arranged a version of Train’s song, Marry Me for the string quartet and vocalist. Anh walked down the aisle and joined Russell at the altar, where they exchanged vows and rings. Friends and family then made their way to the church courtyard where they had a traditional Asian tea ceremony.
For the creative shoot, we followed along with their photographers Steve and Jennifer Pomerleau. We strolled along the river at Bert Weeks Park and wandered though the historic Walkerville area.
The reception was held at the St Clair Centre for the Arts. We’re there practically every week… yet our couples and their decorators never fail to wow us with something new. We enjoyed a terrific meal, listened to some heartwarming speeches and danced the night away.
Congratulations Anh and Russell! We wish you all the best and hope that you love what we’ve captured for you!
