Sarah and Anthony –  Puppy Love Wedding In Sudbury, Northern Ontario

Sarah and Anthony met when they were both in their late teens at a Bootlegger clothing store in the New Sudbury Centre. Anthony got lost in Sarah’s big beautiful doe eyes and knew he had to see her again. As it was done back then, Anthony got her email address from a mutual friend who confirmed Sarah was single and Anthony contacted her that night, asking for a date. After a few dates, Sarah started to fall in love with the small things Anthony did- the simple but special gestures.
From the bride: “For me, one of my favourite things about Anthony is the simple and understated ways he makes me happy. He does not need to resort to grand gestures to let me know how much he loves me. Soon after Anthony and I met it was my 18th birthday. He picked me up at my house and said that he wanted to bring me somewhere — a surprise. We drove up to a “No Trespassing” gate and got out. It was dark outside and I had no idea where the service road past the gate led to, but I excitedly followed him down the road and eventually up a steep grassy hill. On the top of the hill was some sort of radio tower and a beautiful view of Sudbury and her amazing night sky — it was such a simple but special gesture.

Sarah and Anthony’s wedding day had the theme of “puppy love”. This adorable couple have rescued multiple dogs and in addition to their dog bone shaped cookies (handmade by the brides sister), a donation was made to SAINTS Dog Rescue in Sudbury. Sarah didn’t get to enjoy the beautiful reception she spent over a year planning. Due to an untimely flu bug, Sarah was sick after the speeches and wasn’t able to attend the dance. As a photographer, I didn’t feel like the wedding was complete, and was really excited when the bride’s sister contact me about a reception ‘Take Two’, a private party at a local nightclub, SRO. DJ by Andre was there as well and Sarah was able to have an intimate evening, dancing with her new husband, father and friends. It was the perfect ending to a fabulous wedding!
