He was 14, she was 12. In this day in age, the world would laugh and mock the idea that one would be able to find true love, your better half, your best friend, when you are still growing out of polka dot tops. Or smiling with your braces on. But in that awkward tween stage, when we are neither children or adults, sometimes cupid can surprise us. Josh saw Loren from across the room at the dance studio they took their ballroom classes at, and he instantly knew she was the one for him.
"He had competition though!" remarked one of the speakers at the reception. But in typical competitive Josh style, he competed, he proved, he danced, and he showed Loren that he was the better man. That he was worth her heart.
More than a decade later, they stood in front of their family and friends, and made a promise to love each other til the end of their days. And like Loren and Josh, it was a day filled with laughter, much classiness, a touch of looking back, and a whole lot of looking forward. Congratulations Loren and Josh! Thank you so much for entrusting me to capture your big day! I hope you are loving newly married life, with your lovely dogs. Don't forget to pull out those dancing shoes once in awhile - you both worked those feet incredibly that night :)
Here are my favourites from their wedding day:
Loren looked so stunning on the day, and we all joked that no one would be looking at Josh. He understands, but you can see why we made that statement!
I love this snap taken by Linda!
Here comes the bride!
I thought it was cute how Loren looked back at her guests, before she said her vows at St Marks, Darling Point.
This was a sweet moment. Loren was teary after the ceremony so here's one of her bridesmaids helping her dry up.
Lots of hugs and laughs :)
Then it was off to get some portraits taken.
Some yummy details, at Doltone House in the City, which is where Loren and Josh had their reception.
I took TONNES of frames of Loren and Josh's awesome choreographed dance. Here are just a few that showed how lively and talented these two are on the dance floor!
Some fun on the dance floor by the guests:
And of course, some fun with the rings! Take a guess where I put the rings for this shot :)
So sorry there isn't a slideshow with this post. My FTP server is down and misbehaving in a serious way, so I hope the above photos will do for now :)
Huge thanks to Linda and Vincy for assisting at this wedding. You both were awesome additions to the day :)
