I’ve loved getting to know the Lebanese community in Halifax … even discovering that I’m related to a few people who I’ve met along the way (my grandmother was Lebanese). The weddings are always an incredibly fun time and I’m always excited to shoot them, especially since it’s a chance to catch up with many friends (family) who I’ve gotten to know over the years. Laura and Tony are some of those friends, only this time it was their wedding.
I knew it would be incredible, especially since they’re such a warm, caring couple that just want the best for the people they love. But when combined with the hard work from some of the most talented professionals in Halifax, it was just perfection.
Their festivities started with an epic dance party a few nights before their wedding … a traditional “Layliye” that’s always a blast and is something that I love shooting almost as much as the wedding! And with only a couple of days for everyone to recover, their wedding was once again a day full of love, great food and again, so much dancing and drumming that my feet were sore for days!
Thank you Laura and Tony for an amazing weekend! We’re looking forward to dancing with you both again soon!
