Eriks was the sweet sensitive boy who lived across the street from my elementary school,
where we spent 10 of our childhood years together.
He would often refer to his friends and adventures at ‘Latvian Camp’
where he would pass the summers with his family.
I’m sure I didn’t pay enough attention back then, but it was always clear that this place
and his cultural roots meant a lot to him.
Fast forward to this past spring when I received the most wonderful news that
the guy I still endearingly call ‘short stuff’ was getting married.
And to a lovely Latvian girl, no less.
Fittingly, Eriks and Zinta decided to celebrate their union at camp
where they first met growing up.
But Tervete is so much more than ‘Latvian Camp’…and this wedding was
a day I will always treasure.
Here is a look at some of my favourite memories…
Zinta wore here mother’s vintage wedding dress and it fit like a glove!
The first time I met the bride was on her wedding day…
she is such a beautiful soul and was a delight to work with.
The floral bouquets were hand-tied by the bride and her bridesmaids.
The colour palette of these dresses…dreamy.
The wedding reception was catered by a Food Truck from Montreal’s Grumman ’78.
Shooting this special day was pure joy for me and an absolute honour.
Thank you to my assistant Jade for being there as always and for getting groovy on the
Eriks and Zinta…I am so happy for you both and wish you a lifetime
of happiness and blessings together.
