Joanne & Cleveland got married on May 5, 2012 in a beautiful Christian ceremony held at Unionville Alliance Church in Markham, Ontario. I loved the beautiful and often hilarious words spoken by Bishop Canute Blake Sr. who married Joanne Samuels and Cleveland Lancelot Harris! This wedding was such a family event – our new friend Sheldon Isaac who is Joanne’s brother-in-law photographed the wedding. Check out a few photos here. Kenny Blake Jr. was the MC and also led the gospel trio ‘Echoes of Praise’ both at the ceremony and reception which was absolutely incredible to experience.
Cleveland and Joanne chose the first weekend in May to get married which coincidentally is also Cinco de Mayo, which notably has absolutely nothing to do with their wedding except for the fact that Mucho Burrito was having a special on burritos that day and ‘Mucho’ is Katie(our newest member to the Honey & Dear team)’s favourite restaurant. I say all this because the following film about Joanne & Cleveland’s wedding was edited entirely by Katie and it is her first highlight film and we think she knocked it out of the park! What do you think?
We had such an amazing time getting to know Joanne and Cleveland. A few weeks before their wedding, we got together and made an engagement film that is actually quite awesome. Joanne does a bit of personal training and she showed Cleveland a thing or two.
