I’m all for big weddings--they create a contagious joy and energy that somehow enlivens and uplifts everyone. But there’s a lot to be said for small weddings, too--the intimacy of your closest friends and family, the relaxed atmosphere that allows the couple to reflect on this next chapter in their lives. Fortunately, provincial restrictions were lifted the week of Talitha and Luke’s wedding, which allowed Luke’s family to travel from BC to be there for their marriage at Glenhyrst Gardens, a stunning hidden gem in the city of Brantford. It was a quieter day than they originally planned for, but no less meaningful. I was so excited for them, and it was a truly beautiful day that everyone will remember for years to come.
