They had already been a family of four. Through all the trips and the memories and the adventures they shared, the love they all had for one another had cemented that fact long before any ceremony could. But that day, in front of the people that meant the most to them, the two of them spoke the vows and exchanged the rings and shared a kiss that made it official. And as the two of them came back up the aisle that day, hand and hand and smiling, the rest of the world celebrated what had already been true in their hearts for all the years before . . . . .

Eric and Darlyn are married! The two of them were married in an outdoor ceremony before celebrating at a gorgeous reception, all of which took place at the T Pepin Hospitality Centre. Darlyn looked every bit the the classic bride, from her perfectly timeless dress to a stunning pair of Louboutins to aaaaaallll the diamond details, and watching Eric well up as he saw her at the end of the aisle gave us all the feels! The bridesmaids wore light blush gowns, which popped beautifully against the florals, and the groomsmen looked timeless in gray suits.
We loved so much about this day, from the gorgeous reception decor (which included legit TREES) to the stunning venue, but the thing we adored most was the amazing sense of family. Eric’s dad served as his best man, and the couple’s adorable kiddos were a part of the bridal party. And in a moment that pushed every full heart over the edge, Eric danced with their sweet son Preston to a song called “Being a Dad”. It was hands down one of the most heartfelt moments we’ve ever had the honor of documenting, and it didn’t leave a single dry eye in the room.
Eric + Darlyn, we have loved being a part of your wedding journey and were so happy to be the ones to spend the day with you guys!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
