Wedding Escape Star Wars Style

With the use and creativity of technology these days you can basically do anything. So when my sister’s photographer suggested they do this bridal party shot as one of their wedding photos, Leslie and Paul (the bride and groom) were all over it.

As avid Star Wars fans this picture was perfect for them. We literally ran down the street in front of the Eglinton Grand Theater in Toronto between light changes, feigning faces of fear, as the photographer, Tony and Danielle Lombardo of Little Blue Lemon Photography took shots.

It was a rush, so fun and now has literally gone viral on the net, with my sister and her new husband fielding many media requests and enjoying the spotlight. What a great addition to their big day!

Believe it or not I am in this picture too, as I was one of Leslie‘s 8 bridesmaids, but all you can see is the toe of my shoe and the bottom of my dress in about the middle of the photo. Regardless it was super fun and I am so happy for my sister and new brother in law.

The Unveiling

Last week I had the pleasure of participating in and attending my sister’s wedding. It is always a fabulous time when I go see my sister in Toronto. She and many of her friends are actors so it is never boring and continually entertaining. Also my sister in general just has this larger than life energy, she is one of those people that exudes joy, laughter and fun, someone everyone wants to be around.

So things like unveiling the wedding menu (in this picture) which can be a very mundane and ordinary event, are turned into fun, exciting and extraordinary events. Leslie feeling very proud of it pulled it out to show us and asked us all to give her a fantastic reaction, which of course we did!

I think we should all take a page out of Leslie’s book and make every moment we can memorable, exciting and fun. I know there are times when this may not be possible, but imagine the excitement and joy in each day when you live like this.
