Couple: Daniel & Lina
Lina and Daniel met in their first year of their undergraduate degree. They now have been together for seven years and have a wonderful daughter together named Ariana. Lina and Daniel enjoy travelling, hiking and camping together. Daniel proposed in the most romantic (and brave!) of ways. Lina and Daniel were on one of their travel adventures in Cozumel, Mexico on Christmas Day. They both went snorkelling and Lina had to get the ring which was left in a box that was tied to string, which was also tied to a boat that they were on! That is so crazy-creative and courageous, and I’m sure it was a moment to remember. As Lina and Daniel both love the outdoors and the environment, it was only perfect to have their wedding at a conservation centre.
Kortright is environmentally friendly, being powered by renewable energy as well as it’s located in the centre of a beautiful forest of tall pine trees. We got some pretty amazing photos of the two of them as well as their wedding party in that stunning forest! There were so many adoring moments in this wedding and nearly of all them included their daughter Ariana. From the moment Lina and Daniel saw each other for the first time on their wedding day, to their first dance together; Ariana was right there along with them wanting to be a part of it all. It was so sweet to watch (and capture!). But my most favourite moment was when both Lina and Daniel not only gave rings to each other in their wedding ceremony, but said a beautiful vow to care for Ariana and presented her with a special ring as well — so sweet.
This was such a wedding to remember. It was everything they wanted it to be – intimate, laid back, fun and nature inspired… but also full of love! You can see that family is hugely important to them and this wedding confirmed what a beautiful family they already have together. – Samanthat Ong Photography
