I had a lot of fun at Erin and Samir’s beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding. Getting ready in their rooms at White Oaks Resort, my first stop was to say hi to Erin. Here you could feel the excitement, as Erin, surrounded by her family and friends all ready to lend a helping hand, got ready for her big day.
Next we made a short trip down the hall to Samir’s room, where the atmosphere was calm and mellow. Here the groom, with his father and best man, was quietly contemplating the day ahead. After getting on their suits and making sure everything was in place it was back to Erin’s where her bridesmaids were helping her into her gorgeous purple sari.
The ceremony was outside in the beautiful courtyard. Erin and Samir sealed a box, a sort of time capsule with a bottle of their favourite wine and a letter to each other to be opened as an anniversary celebration. The bride and groom exchanged vows, a couple of tears of joy, and finally a kiss and they were officially married.
After family photos and a quick stroll around the gardens it was party time.
After being announced into the reception, Samir and Erin had their first dance and you could see how happy they were and they smiled and laughed through the whole song.
The night finished off outside, roasting marshmallows and sipping drinks.
