ROCHELLE & ANTON | McMaster University Wedding
Details, details, details! Rochelle and Anton’s wedding was full of details that we loved capturing! We started off the day by capturing some beautiful accessories, shoes, perfume, florals, wedding dress, bow tie, watch, sunglasses, etc. While the groom and his groomsmen enjoyed some KFC’s and vodka, the bride and her bridesmaids shared some giggles on the bed in their beautiful silk robes. After some morning fun, the bride and groom got changed and read the card that they had exchanged. As a bonus, Anton gifted Rochelle a pair of beautiful earrings along with her card. It was so sweet of him!
Just before Rochelle headed for the ceremony, she had a Father-Daughter-First Look session! As you may be able to tell from the photos, this was a super sentimental moment shared between a daughter and father! When Rochelle’s father turned around to see his little girl in a wedding dress, they exchanged words (in English or Tagalog - I don’t remember because what happened next was a universal language!) they stepped forward to give each other a hug. It was during the hug that’s when the surreal moment finally fell upon them and tears rolled down their cheeks! Moments like these caused tears rolled down my cheeks, as well, as I continue snapping away such heartfelt moments! Speaking of sentimental moments; Anton also had tears rolling down his cheeks as Rochelle walked down the aisle at the ceremony! We love documenting moments like these because they are a great keepsake in the album and can also be shown to their future generations. The organic moment between mommy and grandpa on her wedding day and daddy’s reaction at their wedding ceremony!
Anton and Rochelle chose to do their bridal portraits at the McMaster University where they first met and both graduated from. It was like walking down their memory lane on their wedding day! The architecture at McMaster University was so beautiful that we couldn’t resist but to have photographed at multiple spots! The steps at one of the doors created the perfect spot for us to display Rochelle’s beautiful cathedral veil (which was her something borrowed)!
At Carmen’s Banquet Hall, there were even more details and beautiful decorations displayed all around the hall and the lobby, even marquee letters of their last name! The guests definitely a lot of fun activities to keep them entertained throughout the night: Rochelle and Anton wow’ed everyone with their first dance that was choreographed and inspired by Dancing with the Stars, they had an EPIC Father-and-Daughter dance (where it started slow and went wayyy up beat), admiring Mother-and-Son dance, lively bouquet and garter toss, traditional money dance to bless the couple and just fun dancing for the rest of the night!
We enjoyed everything from the details to the decorations to the sentimental values to the fun aspect of this wedding! Thank you Rochelle and Anton for having us take part in capturing your beautiful day with such a lively crowd and congratulations again!
