What an incredible wedding for two incredible people. Michael & Marian got married in one of the coolest all-around weddings I think we’ll ever be a part of. We actually couldn’t manage to fit in a quarter of the amazing things Michael and Marian had planned for their wedding – other wise their Same Day Edit would have been oh about 20 minutes!
Michael Daoud, owner of Pink Elephant Marketing invited us to his office about a year ago to meet along with his new fiancee Marian. When Marian started to talk about her family and how important they were to her and all of the planning that had already taken place for her wedding – we knew we were in for a treat. We spent 4 or 5 days with Michael and Marian over the past year getting to know them and being with them for some pretty special moments including her final dress fitting at Pearl Bridal House as well as Michael’s final Tuxedo fitting at John Ferrigamo in Yorkville. We loved spending time with their family interviewing them and gathering stories for a special engagement film we put together which will be online shortly.
We loved how Michael and Marian both grew up in the same Coptic Church and had their traditional orthodox ceremony in the same church. After the ceremony (where no kissing is allowed) – we went to the Thompson Hotel (which is quickly becoming one of our favourite places for some more shots. I would like to personally say that the very last shot in this edit from the rooftop of the Thompson may in fact be my favourite ever Honey & Dear shot. I’ll let you be the judge of that! There was a lot more to this wedding – but why don’t you just watch the Same Day Edit.
This wedding had so many awesome people involved who helped bring it all together. We loved spending the day with Sarah Cherry who helped keep the elaborate party on schedule! We also had a great time hanging out with Matt from Xero Digital. The live band they had blew our socks off – Tyler Yarema & His Rhythm.
Thank you so much Michael & Marian for having us – we can’t wait to see all of your photos from Thailand!
