Lithuania Wedding Photography // Zivile & Dalius

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. After capturing as many weddings as we have, you’d think they wouldn’t affect me much any more. I thought the same thing as I prepared for our trip. At first I thought we’d just fly in to Lithuania, shoot my little sister’s wedding like any other, do the best job we can, and that would wrap up our trip. It turned out to mean much more.
For my little sister Zivile’s big day, she decided to keep everything fairly small, pretty intimate, and mostly do-it-yourself. This was the first time we saw and realized how much work you have to put in in to wedding planning, especially if you take care of most of the organization and details yourself. Even though this was a small intimate wedding with only fifty people, there was plenty of work to be done in order to pull everything together. Every DIY detail takes time, thought and effort to make and at the end everything must be coordinated in one spot on one day at just the right time. If you are thinking about planning a DIY wedding, my advice would be start early and don’t procrastinate to the last minute—take any helping hand you can and hire good professionals as needed, since one mistake can ruin all your hard work and even your entire wedding day.
Leading up to the ceremony, our mom—who is the best seamstress I know—worked hard to make Zivile’s dress by hand, even altering it just slightly at the last minute to accommodate the few pounds my sister understandably lost because of wedding jitters. But now she will have something special to hand down to her daughter and her daughter’s daughter, and that makes all the hard work worth every stitch.
While it was part of my job that day to take the photographs and I had to worry about all the usual things like lighting, the weather (which turned out great), perfect angles and looking for great moments, an even bigger job fell to me. When I was walking my little sister down the aisle holding her little hand, I swallowed some tears. I don’t think anyone saw it—I tried to keep it together as I had a job to do. When we walked I realized how she had grown from just a little girl to a beautiful woman. Our father past away from cancer and my mom raised Zivile by herself from when my sister was eight years old. I bow to single parents. We just had our little Emma, and can’t imagine raising a kid by yourself. But that is story for other time perhaps.
It was an emotional, beautiful day. We had a chance to see a wedding from another point of view: from the perspective of family and friends. We don’t get to enjoy this side very often, and it gave us even more understanding how important weddings are.
While time can seem to both pass too quickly and also stand perfectly still, weddings give families a chance to look around and enjoy the past, present, and the future together. This trip had so many firsts and some lasts. The first time I walked my sister down the isle; the first time I shot a wedding barefoot and wearing shorts half of the day anyway; the first time my grandma saw her great granddaughter. Unfortunately life goes as it goes making lines and wrinkles on our faces and hands, and at some point, the time we do some thing will end up being the last time we do it. My beloved grandma passed away just a few weeks after the wedding.
So hold your hands together as those old and young celebrate birthdays and weddings. Take the time to celebrate family and life, because you newer know when you will see each other again even if you live under the same roof.

Family Farm Wedding Ontario // Annie & Trevor 683 1024 Gee & Ieva

Family Farm Wedding Ontario // Annie & Trevor

When you’ve seen as many weddings as we have–which is more than a few, believe us–you sometimes get to take a small step back and think about what all the best ones have in common. Cake? Oh, yes; who doesn’t love cake? Flowers? Of course. Happy people? It’s hard to not feel happy when people are swearing their love to each other for a lifetime. So what is it? What makes a wedding that much extra special?
For us, it’s all about the energy, the vibe, the undercurrent of the whole experience. We are lucky to have attracted many, many couples with the kind of sensibility that’s both down to earth and also rooted so deeply in rich, sentimental love. Oftentimes our wedding photography is put to use in intimate spaces that reflect warmth, coziness, and the closeness of all the people there celebrating. And we have to say maybe our favorite locations that include all of that (and more) are farm spaces. More and more couples seem to be looking for that old fashioned but very hip atmosphere they offer, and many farms will now rent their space for weddings and receptions. Even if the land hasn’t been in your family for generations, it will still feel like home.
Farms immediately conjure images and feelings of families, of roots, of traditions, of working together to build a life, of a place to feel safe–all the elements of a wonderful marriage. Plus, can you beat the amazing natural lightning and all the incredible ways to dress up a barn? You really can’t. You really, really can’t.
Annie and Trevor would wholeheartedly agree. Though they both now live and work in the fast pace of New York City, they slowed it down for their big day and chose the ancestral farm that belongs to Annie’s family. A good hour away from Toronto, this Grafton, Ontario farm had been started by the bride’s grandparents–who, even though they are both over 100 years old, were there to witness the ceremony and honor the couple’s love. Though old of body, they were so obviously young at heart that we left feeling inspired to stay in love as long as they have.
It must have made them feel so many memories flood back to them as they looked back on all the things that have happened on that land, and to look forward to the future of the couple and all the things waiting for them in their new life together. The ceremony was full of wildflowers that friends of the couple had picked from the neighboring fields, and as the sun set on the day the night came alive with fireworks.
Words can hardly to justice to this beautiful day. But luckily, we had out cameras ready.

One from Parry Sound wedding in Muskoka. It was a rainy one. Outdoor weddings are unpredictable and we love the couples who embrace the moment and seize the day.
