Sara and Jason’s Poolside Wedding

Sara and Jason are such a special Couple. They joined together with their closest family and friends around a beautiful pool side in Eganville Ontario. The Pool and stunning Tiki Bar area was located in a friends yard (Otherwise known as “Punta Canada”).  It was a gorgeous sunny day with plenty of heat. The Bride walked down the aisle with both of her parents at her side. Sara’s daughters were part of the wedding party. After the couples vows were read Jason had a surprise for the girls. Not only did he have vows and a ring for Sara, but also for them.

His vows:

“I know I wasn’t there for the first steps that you took, but I promise that from this day forward I will love and support you…”

The details of this wedding were centered around this great couple’s Love. Sara and Jason, with the help of the girls, even made their wedding cake from scratch. Formal pictures were taken just down the road at a huntcamp location with fields, rustic buildings, and even an old bus stop! LUCKY US…. the photo ops were endless!

Thank you for letting us share your special day with you… We wish Sara, Jason, the girls, and the new little bundle (coming this year) the best future possible.

Pure Bliss… Dana and Tyler’s Big Day

Dana and Tyler’s beautiful Waba Garden wedding was like watching a fairytale unfold.  There were so many things to love about this wedding!  From the elegant hall decor (Even custom wall drapery sewn by groom) to the unique ceremony sitting plan, it was a wedding to remember.  Dana and Tyler are two very like souls whom, from the time that we meet them, were planning their stunning do-it-yourself masterpiece which happened on the couples 8th Anniversary!  Every piece of the wedding embodied their love and symbolized what brought them to this day.  Lisa had the luxury of shooting the ceremony from many, many, many  feet above the ground in a cherry picker.  While she seemed very calm and collected, I am sure I saw a little tinge of green in her cheeks…haha!  The formal pictures at the Garden were stunning.  Unfortunately the rain meet with us and for a brief moment Lisa and I were worried about being able to fully capture the day.  Luckily for us the sun was shinning in Renfrew.  With such a stunning couple it was not hard to create beautiful and dramatic images.  Therefore, we had just enough time to highlight all of the couples special day.

I had a minor set back during the early formal shots.  As a result of being so consumed by the moment, I was unaware of my surroundings and fell…..saving my camera but not my head.  I pressed on and didn’t let it stop me.  However we took a detour to the hospital that night before coming home.  A few stitches and a concussion taught me a very important lesson as a photographer.  BUT I GOT THE SHOT!!!!!

During the dinner the speeches told an important story about the couple.  It was clear they have been in love since very early on in their relationship and value loyalty, commitment, friendship and their love for one another.  There were so many nice things said about the couple and it was evident that they have both made a lasting impression on many people’s lives.  The first dance was a moment “Stopped” in time.  It is always an honor to capture such a loving first dance.  There were two highlights during the other first dances.  The first being the father daughter dance.  It started out as a slow dance to “My Girl” and then became a medley that Dana and her Dad could “Rock Out” to.  It was hilarious to watch and so fun to capture.  As the second highlight, Chris Kyte was featured singing a song for the groom and his mother.  It was a surprise for Tyler and there was a lot of emotion present in the room.  And can I just say we were excited to find out AMBUSH was the band for the evening.  It was a really fun experience!

We would like to wish this blissful couple much happiness. It was great to be a part of your special day.  Dana, You were breath-taking.  Your entire wedding party looked fabulous and I still can’t believe you did all their hair!
