2010 is an exciting year for us, here, at Bryan Caporicci Photography. We have 25 absolutely amazing couples to hang out with, photograph, and watch the formation of their new family. We also get to experience this, first hand, ourselves.
As many of you may know, Al and I are getting married, ourselves, this July 10th. As we put together all of the final pieces to our wedding details and plans, it is so exciting to see the days count down. We can totally understand the excitement and emotions that our couples go through. I think that it has really given us a better appreciation and understanding for our couples.
This past weekend marked the kick-off to our 2010 season with Carla and Maurizio’s wedding. We spent the day in Halton Hills, and had a beautiful day for a winter wonderland wedding.
To Carla and Maurizio – enjoy your time in St. Lucia, and we’re looking forward to getting together with you to go over your album and images once you get back!
I hope that you all enjoy these images … I think that they really set the stage for an amazing 2010. ]]>
Here is Maurizio putting the boutonniere on his ring bearer, Paolo. Usually the guys have a difficult time putting on the flowers, but Maurizio passed this one with flying colours!
What a strapping lad!
Maurizio took a few minutes, in the rush of the preparations, to sit down and do what he enjoys most – play some classical guitar. Maurizio is a total guitar whiz, and he left all of us breathless with the beautiful tunes he was playing.
I just love the look of Maurizio’s Nonna as he was putting the flowers on her. The look of pride. The look of happiness. The look of adoration. Moments like these are often not appreciated in the heat of the moment on the wedding day, but when you look back at your photographs, you can really slow down and appreciate them.
Over at Carla’s parent’s house, they had decorated the entrance way and the stairs to the nines. It was a beautiful setting for a great bridal gown detail shot.
Can you tell that Carla is excited and looking forward to what is ahead of her?
This is one of Carla’s flower girls, enjoying a laugh with the rest of the girls. How adorable is this?
Carla was absolutely stunning in her dress. The ongoing theme throughout all of the decorations and floral arrangements was peacock feathers. When we were in her room creating some bridal portraits, I saw this masquerade mask with the peacock feathers on it and thought that it was so appropriate to create an image with it.
Carla was a total trooper and wanted to go outside for some winter-y portraits. It was cold, but it was definitel worth it!
What a beautiful family portrait – Mom and Dad, Carla, and her sister, Andrea. Lovely!
After the ceremony, Carla and Maurizio opted to have some quiet time, upstairs in the balcony, as opposed to having a receiving line right away. This gave them a few amazing moments to breath, enjoy each other’s company, and soak in the moment.
We always encourage our couples to plan in some private time on the wedding day. As busy as the day goes, you really have to remember that it is about the two of you, and your love for each other. Having this moment or two in the balcony really allowed them to enjoy each other’s company.
We went to the Rose Garden Theatre for the bridal party portraits, and we had a great time there. The lighting was just fantastic!
We went into the theatre itself for a few quick portraits. It was very dark in there, but, no fear, Bryan the flash-whisperer is here!
Love this one of the whole bridal party!
The reception was gorgeously decorated, and the theme of peacock feathers were carried out throughout all of the floral arrangements and favor boxes.
Here are a few of my favourite moments and images from the reception – some happy, some emotional, and some fun. They all make up what a wedding is all about, in my opinion.
