Norm, Diane and I connected immediately when Norm told me that he was very involved in the Toronto Blues community, because I also love that type of music.  We also connected upon realizing that we live just one kilometre from each other!

I love how Diane and her son are grinning at each other before they head out for some photos.

Rolls Royce cars always look great in photos!

We took these photos at James Gardens, in Etobicoke and we lucked out because we had perfect weather.  Even though our photo session was at midday it was not too bright because the sun kept hiding behind clouds.

Everyone in the bridal party was also family.

Their ceremony took place at the always stunning Islington United Church.

The architecture was so beautiful we went back inside the church after the ceremony to sneak in some formal portraits.

This cake was ready to be eaten at the reception, even though it looks too beautiful to eat!

First dance!  Norm loves to play music and Diane loves to listen and dance to it.


This band was the big surprise of the evening. Norm did not tell Diane they were going to have a live band. She was thrilled when she found out!

Surprise band!

Congrats on a perfect wedding day, Norm and Diane! Thanks so much for having me there to document it.  I loved the big surprise too!
