Before we knew pandemics were a thing, people were getting married outdoors and hosting intimate weddings. There are, of course, obvious differences between a small, pre-2020 celebration and the challenges couples are met with now, but some things—like joy, love, and family– haven’t changed at all.
Hosted at Madsen’s Greenhouse here in Toronto, Elle and Quade’s celebration was full of all the good things along with some of the things we miss (Packed dance floor! Hugging everywhere!). Theirs was a lovely, outdoor, deeply personal, uniquely them day. It began for Elle with a grounding meditation ceremony put together by her twin sister. Then, there was a moving first look in front of everyone (such a beautiful moment!) and the signing of the ketubah before their closest friends and family. Before they knew it, everyone was dancing and laughing in the hora!
