It was about 6 years ago that Sali & Remo met while working at Sobey’s. Remo often admired Sali from across the store and after some encouragement from a close friend, he worked up the nerve to go and speak to Sali while she was working in the Sobey’s deli. One short conversation led to another and before they knew it they began dating. It seems that the meeting of these two was inevitable really. To their surprise, shortly after they met they found out that they literally lived around the corner from each other, but had never actually met!
I met Sali several years ago now when I photographed one of her older brother, Karlous’ wedding, and then the following year I was blessed by getting a call from Sali’s older sister, Klaudine for yet another family wedding! So you can imagine how thrilled and blessed I felt when I received the email from Sali to ask me to be a part of her big day with Remo. There is nothing better than getting to share in such beautiful family weddings, and to do this again for the same lovely group of people on 3 occasions…. well, let’s just say I was really feeling the love from the Ravo family
Although the weather wasn’t as cooperative as we had hoped it would be, we managed to fight through the winds and the rain to find some somewhat sheltered areas for photos at out original chosen photo location, The Hamilton Steam & Technology Museum. I have to hand it to the wedding party as they were incredible with putting up with the cold temperatures and pushing through to get the best photos we could for Sali & Remo’s wedding day even though they shivered and sported a lovely covering of goosebumps. You guys were so awesome… especially those girls in their dresses!
After we wrapped up photos, we headed out to the reception at the Oakville Convention Centre for a beautiful reception. The moments through the evening were filled with emotion, high energy, and lots of laughter. Sali & Remo were dancing the night away when we left and we loved seeing the pure joy on their faces in those moments.
Sali & Remo, I am so grateful for sharing in your life moments over the past few years. As a couple you have been through some very tough times in your lives and they strength in your relationship shines through. You are a kind, warm and loving couple and I am blessed in knowing you both as well as your families. I send you so much love and all the very best wishes in the years ahead. Much love!
