I got to work with Vadim again a few weeks ago at this big wedding at the Basilique Notre-Dame in the Montreal Old Port. It felt like a celebrity wedding or something since you had random people in the streets lining up just to see the bride walk from the car to the church.
And it was even crazier after the ceremony, as I was taking pictures of the bride & groom walking out, I had hundreds of people around me trying REALLY HARD to photograph them. There were cameras all around my face fighting for position. It was kinda like the MSTRKRFT mosh pit at Osheaga. And keep in mind that these are random people in the street trying to photograph a bride they don’t even know.
So I’ve seen rice being thrown at newlywed couples before, like in Juliane & Ghyslain's wedding I photographed a few weeks ago. But this was the first time I saw PENNIES being thrown at them. A good luck thing maybe?
