Jovana & Rade's Wedding
After anxiously awaiting Jovana and Rade’s gorgeous wedding day for what felt like an eternity, it was finally here!
I was SO excited to photograph this wedding, because Jovana is one of those people that I immediately connected with. When she first emailed me, I could not have guessed that we would become instant friends, long before their engagement session with me! We had a many things in common, including our birth place and some of the things we experienced growing up in Canada. Jovana has made a name for herself as a body-positive influencer on Instagram (check out Jovanafit on Instagram!) and public speaker. She is truly an inspiration and I am honoured to call her a friend.
For their wedding day, Jovana and Rade got ready at separate locations, and then as per Serbian wedding tradition, Rade and his family came to Jovana’s family home prior to their ceremony at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Mississauga. Their bridal party photography took place at beautiful Puddicombe Farms in Stoney Creek, and their reception at Carmen’s Banquet Hall in Hamilton.
It was a gorgeous (windy!) day and I love the photos that we captured!
