bright and beautiful ukrainian wedding

St. John Syriac Orthodox church, saint volodymyr cultural centre

How do I even begin to describe the love these two share? I don't think words can do it justice. I have never heard so many speeches include the word "soulmates" in my entire life. Natalia and Patrick have been together for the better half of a decade. Surrounded by their friends and family, these two love birds said their "I do's" in St. John Syriac Orthodox Church in downtown Burlington, Ontario. The light blue walls of the church made for the most stunning ceremony, and I know I wasn't the only one whose heart melted as these promised to love one another forever. After the ceremony, we headed down Lakeshore Road to a house on the lake (shoutout to one of Patrick's groomsmen for letting us shoot there on such short notice!) for bridal party pictures and some celebratory champagne. Natalia and Patrick held their reception in Oakville at Saint Volodymyr Cultural Centre. There was food, there were drinks, and there were happy and sad tears as Natalia honoured her late father. Patrick's hand scarcely left hers. Capturing the love these two share was nothing short of an honour.
