From the photographer, Brittany:
Ciera and Steven met while she was on vacation in the Dominican Republic and he was living there, running a restaurant with his dad. Mutual friends wanted to introduce Ciera to someone her own age so she could experience the beautiful country with a friend. They brought Ciera to a bar one night where Steven was on stage singing and playing the guitar – and it was love at first sight! They spent every day together after that and knew they wanted to spend their lives together. They travelled back and forth from Canada and the Dominican to be with each other. They decided that in order for this relationship to last, he would need to make a move to Canada.
They decided to get married shortly after he arrived. They picked the home of the same mutual friends that introduced them to be the site of their wedding. Since things moved very quickly, their wedding rings were purchased from a pawn shop in the Dominican Republic. The names engraved on the rings showed that they had previously belonged to “Edwin” and “Rafael”. Short, sweet, hilarious, and perfect. Two years later, they couldn’t be happier to have found each other. They decided to celebrate their love and relationship with a stylish in home session where they could enjoy each other’s company and cuddle all day long!
