Shaughnessy and Eugeni
The first sign of rain made me scared – I thought the photo session had been sabotaged even before I got started. But the interiors of the Canadian Forces College are so beautiful and amazingly decorated that it more than made up for the rain.
I love it when the bride makes unusual choices when it comes to accessories, just like Shaughnessy, who opted for a contrast with her gown by choosing blue shoes instead of white or silver. Her jewelry comprised danglers and sleek bangles in gold with a glitzy tone. The gown was a remarkable lacy number with floral embellishments throughout the dress. A gold belt clinched the waist – it was a great finishing touch. Her wonderful skin tone was enhanced with light makeup – she looked amazing! Eugene wore a suave grey suit, white shirt, and a gold tie – he looked smart and stylish. His tall frame was perfectly accentuated by his attire. He was overjoyed with the gift from his bride – a “Good Morning Handsome” coffee cup – his smile is just infectious!
The interiors are marvelous, which gave me excellent opportunities during the photo session – I experimented with a number of poses, and thankfully the couple indulged me as well. Although we couldn’t step outdoors, I clicked some pictures just outside the hall – I wanted to take advantage of the daylight as much as possible.
The couple wanted a small and intimate gathering consisting of family and close friends – all of whom are eagerly waiting for them to walk down the aisle. They wanted a simple, no-frills affair, so I have tried to capture every gaze, embrace, kiss, and glance exchanged by the couple – it is a beautiful testament to their love. The couple wrote their own vows, which was followed by the ring exchange and paperwork. Within no time Shaughnessy and Eugene officially became man and wife!
The photo shoot after the ceremony was extremely fun and enjoyable – as you can see the couple isn’t shy to try out quirky poses with friends and show off crazy dance moves. They are real sports as they participated in the popular “shoe game” as well. Instead of a typical cake, they arranged for pies in different flavors – a brilliant and remarkable idea. Guests were very enthusiastic when the time came for the bouquet and garter toss, although it seems the groom’s side was a tad more excited to grab the garter!
