Patricia and Anthony are a gorgeous couple, with an impeccable sense of style. We did their engagement shoot in October, and we knew after meeting them then that their wedding was going to be stunning, and were really excited about photographing the two of them again. I am not exaggerating when I say that Patricia has the bluest eyes I have ever seen, and a face that could act as the template for porcelain dolls. And Anthony – I knew he looked like somebody famous, but couldn’t think of who – until I looked up while shooting his preparation in his room, and there it was: a poster of a young Al Pacino.
These two aren’t just a couple of pretty faces, they are gorgeous inside and out, and it is apparent that their families had much to do with that. I love the closeness of European families. I loved watching the noise, the exuberance, and most of all the emotion that exuded from the families as they celebrated the union of Patricia and Anthony. Nobody was beyond tears, and their love and joy was written all over their faces. When I arrived to photograph Anthony the morning of the wedding, he admitted that he had a hard time sleeping the night before. It wasn’t because he was nervous to get married, he was ready for that – but because he was leaving the home he grew up with and the room he shared with his brother for 27 years. I was amazed by their bond, and the bond of both families.
We spent a very hot day photographing Patricia and Anthony. It was literally the hottest weekend in the summer, and we baked in the heat as we did the photo session in downtown Toronto, but there were no complaints from the wedding party. They were all champs in my books, especially the ladies, who were braving insanely high heels, as well as the heat. Patricia and Anthony, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day. There is a lot of your day I will remember, the least of which is being chased around the dance floor by a fog-horn-wielding father of the groom!
