Golden Dinosaurs | The Simpsons


Emily & Bill

“Dinosaurs are the best, so just calm down.”

Emily and Bill’s Georgina ROC Chalet wedding had very elegant decor with a “light sprinkling” of golden dinosaurs (yes, golden dinosaurs), and was accented with elements from The Simpsons. Most of the guests were wondering “What’s up with the golden dinosaurs?” and they all had to wait for the bride and groom’s speech to find out the answer – the answer was the quote above 😉

How They Met

Originally, Emily and Bill met on the internet. When they met in-person, they actually met outside a subway station in Toronto (because Emily was running late. ha). On their first date, they went to a pub, and they talked for hours. Bill got tipsy and was a super gentleman and insisted on escorting Emily home on the subway, bus, then subway, then to her car. Then, Emily drove him home because she was sober. They dated for 18 months before getting engaged!

The Proposal

Bill woke Emily up before my night-shift with coffee and a ring, and asked “So… you wanna get hitched?” Apparently this was a great way to wake up, because Emily said yes!

The Wedding


As I mentioned earlier, there were elements of The Simpsons TV show here and there. (The golden dinosaurs I’ll get into more when I get to the Reception part of the blog.) One of those was Bill’s cufflinks – which are replicas of the cufflinks from the Simpsons episode of Lisa’s wedding!

The Newlyweds!


Emily and Bill did a First Look (most people will tap the groom on the shoulder or poke them or something, Emily went with the always popular, ass-grab.), and all their bride & groom photos before the ceremony, so they could mingle with guests right after the ceremony.

The Ceremony


The ceremony was held indoors, because despite it being September, it was crazy hot outside! (It was something like 32*C)

Someone (not Emily), added to the golden dinosaur cake toppers, by dressing them with a tiny bouquet, and floral bow-tie!

The first dance was done in the same area as the ceremony, but the arch was moved away.

Congrats Emily & Bill!! I never thought about it until afterwards, but I left before you guys brought out the pinatas! D’oh!

Emily & Bill’s Sneak Peeks

Emily and Bill held their ROC wedding on an unusually blazing hot day at the end of September. It was somewhere around 35*C! Besides the unusual heat, everything went absolutely perfectly!

Emily and Bill had very elegant decor with a “light sprinkling” of golden dinosaurs – yes, golden dinosaurs. A lot of people were asking “What’s up with the golden dinosaurs?” and they all had to wait for the bride and groom’s speech to find out the answer. I believe Emily’s exact words were “Dinosaurs are the best, so just calm down.” hahaha!

Tiffani and Jonathan’s Backyard Wedding in Mount Albert

Tiffani and Jonathan got married in Mount Albert (well, technically Zephyr) on the HOTTEST day of the year – it was 38*C – and it was an outdoor wedding! Oddly enough, you would never know how hot it was just by looking at the photos. Despite the heat, it was a fantastic wedding, with fantastic people, and everyone had lots of fun – especially the kids, since Tiffani made sure their wedding was super child-friendly by having a bouncy castle! (If it wasn’t so crazy hot, I bet I could have gotten Tiffani and Jonathan in the bouncy castle too 😉 )

The day started in Mount Albert, with Jonathan’s “getting ready” photos, and a few quick portraits.

Then we all headed out to the same spot where we did Tiffani and Jonathan’s engagement photos, to do some family photos and photos of the groomsmen. While we were there, Jonathan’s friend Alex found not one, but TWO four leaf clovers! Double luck! Unlike Alex, who told me that he finds four leaf clovers all the time, I have never found a four leaf clover in my entire life, so I was very excited. As was Jonathan’s sister, Vivien (who is awesome, by the way.)

After that, I thoroughly enjoyed the air conditioned drive over to Tiffani’s parents’ house, where the backyard wedding was taking place. Tiffani’s father built this big structure, almost like the skeleton of a barn, in the backyard. It was covered with a big white tarp, which would have covered the guests if it rained, but it also provided shade on the hot day that it was! It was awesome and very impressive! After the wedding, they planned on dismantling it, and using the wood for other projects. The “barn tent” (I’m not really sure what to call it!) was a multi-purpose area which served as the ceremony area as well as the reception area! A really smart set-up, if I do say so myself! At the end of the “barn tent”, was a small stage, which was not only the “altar” during the ceremony, but also where the head table was setup for the reception, and then after dinner would turn into a dance floor. Brilliant!

The gorgeous (and delicious!) wedding cake and cupcakes!

Tiffani’s wedding gown was custom made by her friend’s mother – and it was stunning! The beading, the fabric, everything!

Tiffani walked down the aisle to a piano instrumental version of Christina Perri’s song “A Thousand Years”. (Side note: I LOVE this song!!! I know it was probably written for spouses/lovers, but it makes me think of my kids, especially my daughter.)

The awesome wedding party! They were all so much fun! And as it turns out, Marisa has a hidden talent for making little kids smile in photos, so she was super helpful 😉 And the guys had me laughing all day! What a great group!

Of course we had to do the ever popular “running from a dinosaur” photo, because Jonathan is a HUGE Jurassic Park fan. If Tiffani had let him, he would have had a Jurassic Park themed wedding.

I took it one step further though, and put some dinosaurs in a few photos – just for you Jonathan!

The whole family got in on the action too! (I thought it was hilarious how a few of them were shoving each other out of the way.)

Tiffani and Jonathan have a very regal look. Very “William and Kate”, I think.

One of Tiffani’s friends lives in London, England, and she couldn’t make it to the wedding. Luckily, the technology available these days makes it possible to see your friends on your wedding day, even if they are halfway across the world.

Dinosaurs Crash Tiffani & Jonathan’s Wedding!

Tiffani and Jonathan are pretty popular these days. Their engagement session was on my blog, then more recently (yesterday!), I posted about how they were featured in Hitched magazine.

Well this past Saturday, Tiffani and Jonathan were married in an intimate backyard ceremony in Mt. Albert. I guess a few dinosaurs got wind of it, because they decided to crash the wedding!

At first, everyone was pretty terrified (Marisa’s blood-curdling screams were heard from miles away), but then we realized that the dinosaurs just wanted to celebrate and party with everyone, which made Jonathan incredibly happy because he’s big into dinosaurs (and as you’d imagine, the Jurassic Park movies as well). Jonathan’s friends even wanted him to have a Jurassic Park themed wedding. The wedding may not have been Jurassic Park themed, but we did get some photos with dinosaurs. Turns out dinosaurs love to photobomb!
