Deer Lake Park wedding: Gladys and Danny

At the end of August, we celebrated Gladys and Danny‘s wedding at Hart House in Deer Lake Park. Their wedding day was filled with personal touches, such as their amazing wedding arch! Can you believe they built it themselves?!

But before the ceremony, they chose for a first look and photos with their wedding party. For the first look, the bamboo garden at Queen Elizabeth Park was their preferred spot! I love that this has a special meaning for them, as they often enjoy walks in the park. So next time they walk by, they can remember the feeling of seeing each other for the first time in wedding attire. Afterwards we photographed their wedding party in the park too.

Next up was Deer Lake Park with the two of them, before it was time to hide from the wedding guests. I loved the moment of Gladys’ touchups and when she had her veil put in her hair. The light was so gorgeous in that room!

At some point during the wedding ceremony, they created a time capsule out of a wooden box. They put letters to themselves, as well as a bottle of wine inside, and sealed the lid with hammer and nails! This unique event certainly surprised their guests, hehe. 😉 And us too! (I’ve never seen this before!) They’re going to open it up on their 10th wedding anniversary, I love this idea!

During the rest of the party, what stood out most to me was that during their speeches (they had 15! speeches) EVERY SINGLE PERSON expressed so much admiration for the two of them. It’s clear that these two do so much for their family and friends and are a true inspiration.

Thank you so much for having us Gladys and Danny! We hope you had an amazing honeymoon!
