Here is the third blog post from my year in review. I finally feel like I’m getting into the groove of things, but it still takes me hours to go through the photos in order to narrow them down. I would put them all up if I could.
Clodagh and Nicholas celebrated their wedding in Stratford, Ontario, where Nicholas grew up. I stayed in his childhood home, and got to meet his incredibly artistic family. I was inspired from the first moment I walked into their historic home. Nicholas is a car designer with a talent only a few people in this world possess. A gift that was passed down from his parents who are extraordinary artists themselves. Their eclectic home is adorned with sketches and artwork with colours and textures that helped spark my creativity for the weekend. Clodagh is an opera singer whose voice is out of this world. Her personality is out of this universe. She must get it from her parents. Her father can make anybody in a room smile. While I did not have the chance to meet Clodagh’s mother in person, I felt her essence through every one of her children, and through every one of her friends and family who spoke of her. I imagine she was a kind, outgoing person who could light up a room. Beautiful inside and out. Just like Clodagh.
