I am going to do you all a favor this Monday morning by allowing you to get sucked into this wedding.
There was no way I could leave this one unshared.
I gotta say, this day has undoubtedly left a lasting impression on me as a testament to the ways humans can love one another from near and far. The smiles and affection is literally infectious in these photos.
Keith and Sanne had so many friends and family flying in from across the globe to descend on the small town of Gowanstown, Ontario. In fact, because there was such an international presence at this wedding, they included this aspect in some of the decor of their wedding – their seating plan was inspired by the places across the globe that their loved ones are from – and using a map of the world to for guests to sign as a guest book. And to make the couple kiss throughout the evening, guests were required to yell out a hearty “I CAN’T BELIEVE WE ARE ALL HERE!”. So of course, there was lots of yelling and screaming and kissing going on.
Since Keith has a gift for building things, when you look at all the decor and setup for this wedding – keep in mind that Keith and Sanne + Co. spent a lot of time building this wedding from scratch. The AWESOME backdrop for the head table was designed and created by the couple, as well as the chandeliers. They built the bar. They built their ceremony arbor. All of it. They are pros.
Keith and Sanne – I wish you two the richest, grandest adventure going forward!
