Combining Jewish traditions and romantic elements for a fun and memorable wedding at The Estates of Sunnybrook in Toronto. Written by Samantha Ong Photography
Susan and Edgar met three years ago and just clicked. They just so happened to be at the same place in their lives and had similar values. They love to run together and then spend the night at home gazing up at the stars. They were both ready to make a long life commitment and share a life with someone. Just last year, they purchased and renovated a house together.
Susan and Edgar had a beautiful lunch wedding at the with a traditional ceremony. Although Edgar is from Colombia, it was very important to Susan to carry out the traditions of her Jewish culture. Edgar is proud to be part of her heritage and take on the customs that go back thousands of years.
“Totally worth it! Samantha is so professional. She made us feel very comfortable. We hardly noticed them at our wedding snapping away. The pictures turned out amazing. It was hard to choose the ones for our album.”Susan & Edgar
Susan and Edgar had a beautiful and elegant lunch reception that was elegant, light and pretty. The ballroom at the main ballroom of the Vaughan Estate was decorated in shades of blush, dusty blue and white and it felt so romantic. Although it was supposed to rain for most of the day, Samantha and her team made the most the weather and were still able to capture lots of portraits outdoors in the beautiful gardens.
I love photographing weddings because of the special traditions and how these celebrations involves many of their family and friends to take part in supporting such a happy occassion!
