What an amazing day. It just seems like yesterday when I first officially met Cola and Gary. One summer night at their condo’s lobby, we chatted for an hour or so, and apparently they first spotted me through a couple whom I’ve shot a few years back. To say the least, this past year was just full of fun and anxiety for everyone, our engagement shots were done, Avant Documentary Photography’s first ever love story was done. Long story short, Kevin and I first started off at Novotel documenting the guys and shortly moved into their condo where Cola was getting ready. Everyone was pumped and getting all ready for the big day. After the bride pickup and games were played, we headed to the Knox College at University of Toronto for the wedding ceremony and tea ceremony. Fittingly, this is where they first met and fell in love. It only makes sense that this is the place where they exchanged their vows to each other as they enter another journey together.
