My cousin Elise has always been one of my muses, and I've been photographing her since we were little kids. Besides her big day, there was her engagement session last spring, the time she modelled for my Feeling of Fragrance project, and even five years ago when we did this nighttime holiday shoot together, to name just a few.

When I heard she was getting married to her love, Ryan, I was so very happy to be able to photograph the day. They make each other so happy and I know they'll have plenty of adventures together throughout their lives. They travelled to Hong Kong, Thailand and Bali for their honeymoon, which I am sure was an unforgettable experience, and just the first of many exciting journeys they will share.

They were married in Oakville, Ontario in October, and I was excited to make the trip to join our family in the fabulous celebration, and also document all the fun that unfolded. Elise and Ryan, I wish you so much happiness! Thank you so much for giving me the honour of photographing your special day. You planned a perfect wedding from beginning to end and I was so happy to be there. Sending you both lots of love!
