This is the stuff fairytail's are made of! Could you imagine, 40 years after first dating, 35 years after loosing touch, and 47 months after reconnecting you say I do to your highschool sweetheart.
We first met Susan and Tom when we photographed Susan's daughter's wedding a few years ago. Even the first time we met them we knew they had something special together.
They were highschool sweethearts who's lives both took them in different directions after school. But a few years ago Tom, who had never stopped loving Susan, managed to track her down. He spent weeks composing a beautiful letter to reconnect with her. All he ever wanted was to see Susan one more time before he died. So 35 years after they last saw each other they met for lunch, and they have been together ever since. Everytime we hear Susan tell this story she lights up with such an incredible love for Tom, it is absolutely beautiful.
They chose to have their ceremony at Parkdale United Church where they went to youth group together as young teen.
Their wedding was very intimate, surrounded by their closest family and friends. After the church everyone was welcomed into their home for a beautiful decorated and catered reception. During the reception Tom surprised Susan with a song that he played on the guitar and sang with a friend.
Their day was perfect in every way and we wish them a life time of happiness together!
