Canadian-Styled Wedding Shoot Celebrates 150 Years of Canada, eh!

It's travel Tuesday! This month, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday! In the world of wedding planning, what better way to celebrate than with a Canadian-style shoot. Thanks to all of the planning from Asian Fusion Weddings and the amazing photography skills of Rhythm Photography in Toronto, every element in this shoot was either Canadian-designed and/or Canadian-made; even the flowers were locally grown in the Ontario area. The food was from the various regions of Canada the British Columbia salmon was glazed with maple syrup made in Ontario. The mussels were from Prince Edward Island.  The array of cheeses, and specialty foods were from Ontario, Alberta and Quebec, to name a few. We hope you enjoy this unique shoot as much as we did! And tonight Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, the SCTV stars who brought the Canadian brothers into millions of homes during the 1980s, are reuniting for a special benefit concert in Toronto so what better way to celebrate Canada, eh?
