This is what happens when you mix yummy cupcakes, gorgeous dresses, the most fabulous vintage details, and incredible incredible light :)Meet Eva and Kah Wui, in a session where the light was so amazingly delicious that I had to pull my chin off the ground and pinch myself to check that it was real!
Enjoy my favourites from the day! :D
The most beautiful details and decor was brought to the shoot! I love my brides who have the most impeccably exquisite taste for their shoot and the things they bring to it! :D
Gorgeous colour-matching fans! So so pwweeetttty! :D
I LOVE it when my brides do NOT bring roses to the shoot! hehehe :D
Then a change of attire, and the sun really came out to play for a rare date with the camera!
Seriously, the light got so amazing at this point, I nearly didn't know what to do with myself! :P
Happy thursday everyone! And have a lovely weekend ahead after that!
Til the next post! :D

Dear hubby...I know we have seen the turn of a decade and then some together, and been through 11 new years, christmases, birthdays, and valentines hand in hand, but today celebrates our 3rd as husband and wife.
Happy anniversary :) I am so thankful we are still here, and that I can still call myself yours after all these years. Really. Here's to many more runs of How I Met Your Mother together in our jammies, and laughing ourselves silly over those Barney Stinson jokes :)
Thank you to our beautiful and talented friend, trish for this picture of us :)

He was incredibly nervous, as he slowly stepped up, and walked towards the microphone to give his wedding speech. He had been thumb-twiddling about it most of the day because public speaking was something he dreaded with a fire, but he got up that day, because she meant everything to him, and he knew this was something important to her.
"I. Love. You" he mouthed silently to her..."I. Love. You. Too" she quietly whispered back in a hushed tone, while her eyes spoke of depths of love and confidence for her man. And so he continued with his prepared words, recounting words of thanks, holding back tears of gratitude for his parents who had given him so very much, and reminiscing with shy embarrassment their love story to every eye and ear in that crowd.
They had come a long way. For two people that began their history together by hating each other and then parting ways for many years, they had come a very long way. However a little spoonful of chance, and technology in the form of the internet brought these two lovers back together. You see, one fine day, for no apparent reason at all, Jenni decided to search for Gun on google, and had just so happened to find his details in the returned results. We all laughed a little at the fact that Gun had even let his details appear on the internet in the age we live in, but that is the magic of fate and serendipity. It sometimes works in your favour. And in Jenni and Gun's case - it allowed for the seeds of their love story to plant, then grow, and then blossom.
While it rained almost the entire day on their wedding, it didn't dampen what was being truly celebrated that afternoon - how much they loved one another, and how incredibly overjoyed they were to be able to look forward to the rest of their lives together.
Enjoy my faves from the day! It really was an amazingly sweet, emotion-filled wedding that really left some footprints on my heart. Adding to the fabulousness that day, was the pleasure of working alongside the uber-talented Papercranes Production team who did the video on the day :)
I love brides with fabulous taste! Truly adored the Amsale designer gown that Jenni chose for her big day! :D
And how cute is this?! The perfume "Daisy" from Marc Jabobs matches the band around Jenni's dress! :)
Classically pretty Salvatore Ferragamo shoes :) So happy they weren't white! :D
David was with the boys as they got ready :-)
Then it was off to the beautiful Gunners Barracks grounds for the ceremony. We were so lucky! It was raining all morning, but it cleared up just in time and just long enough for the vows to go ahead outside :)
This moment really got so many of us choked up. It really was beautiful.
Now THAT, is a real kiss!! :D
Pretty pretty details everywhere! :D Including a lovely cake by Faye Cahill - her designs are always so beautifully and tastefully detailed! :D
Then to end the day, just some pictures of the lovers themselves. It rained like cats and dogs, so we were left to hide under shelter.
Thank you so much to Santo, from Papercranes for letting us use your deliciously awesome rainbow umbrella! And being crazy enough to run in the rain to shoot these shots!! heehee!! Neither Santo nor I had an umbrella over us while doing these pics - Santo was crazy enough to go first, and I was like - hey, if you're going, then I'm coming too!! haha :P
And, ring shots to end. I can't pick which one I like better, so why don't you choose and tell me :)

Happy thursday everyone! I know I have been very quiet and absent of late... maybe tomorrow's blog post I'll share a little more about what has been on my heart and mind :)
For now, I wanted to share this session with all of you. It made me happy while looking at all the smiles dotted throughout all these images. This is what happens when you combine giggles and laughter, sweet love, peonies, pink, and the most gorgeous light :)
