Wedding day photo bride groom

Hi Friends!

I know it’s been almost 2 months since we said “I do” and I still haven’t shared a single blog post on our wedding day with you. My apologies, but we wanted to take a looong break from anything wedding related after we got married. The months leading up to the big day were some of the busiest and craziest of my entire life; and needless to say, we were suffering from (over-)exhaustion afterwards. I was also trying to think of the best way to share our wedding story and moments with you, and have been going back and forth in my head with regards to approach. But, I realize the best way is to just dive right in and show you!

Over the weekend, our wedding photographer, Shlomi Amiga, shared our full wedding gallery with us. We had been waiting with bated breath to see the photos, and it was perfect timing on Shlomi’s part because this is the exact spark I needed to sit down and put a post together for you! Shlomi is one of the best photojournalists and we are so pleased with his work! He has a clear style that is not your typical ‘ethereal’ wedding photo. We specifically sought after and chose him for this style. We wanted something different and to see the story of our wedding day unfold through our wedding photos, rather than look back on a series of staged moments. Glancing through our wedding gallery immediately brought back all the memories and emotions from our special day – the nerves, the laughing, the crying, and the joy. It was all perfectly documented through his lens.

I can’t tell you how difficult it was to narrow down to our favourite moments for this blog post. I’ll be sharing our wedding day in a series of 3 blog posts, so I’ll be able to show you more in the next two posts and will include all of the details. You can also check out Shlomi’s blog for more, but for now I’ll just let the pictures do the talking!

Enjoy!
