Tanya and Adam were wed at Tanya’s Father’s home in Killaloe. The couple shared their vows and a sand ceremony with their family and friends. The waterfront property is GORGEOUS! The ceremony finished with a BANG as the couple set off a cannon that is on display at the home. Most of the formal pictures were done on this property and a few followed at the reception venue. We were happy to share in their day and Wish this couple a great future!
Katrinna and Ian are a perfect match! From their love of the outdoors, hunting, and fishing, to their absolute LOVE for one another, it is just so clear they are meant to be! They light up when they look at eachother and share the same sense of humor. Their Wedding took place along the Indian river and was breathtakingly serene. The ceremony was such a celebration of who they are as a couple.
The formal portraits were done at the Wedding venue (owned by Valley Tent and Party Rentals) and at a few other locations surrounding the area. Katrinna had found a perfect spot down some old train tracks that had a rustic old bridge . We were lucky enough to knock on the door of a resident in the area that hosted a waterfront property with a dock and a bridge near by. There was also a beautiful trail used for hiking and four-wheeling. All of the locations suited this couple and their super fun wedding party perfectly. We even got the couple in a passerby’s quad! How fun is that!
We wish Katrinna and Ian much Joy together in the future. Congrats Again Guys!
Genevieve and Mark were Wed at the Oaks of Cobden Golf Course. It was a stunning location for the wedding to take place. In the hours leading up to the union the sky looked very dark. The chance of rain looked ever so likely. However, about 30 minutes before the ceremony, the sun came out! The outdoor ceremony took place in front of a beautifully staged arch that the Groom made himself. There was a sand ceremony to symbolize the union of this couple.
The formal pictures were taken on the golf course and at two farm locations near by. It was humid, but the couple and their wedding party carried on with smiles and laughter! The Wedding Party incorporated the couple’s best friends and family. We had so much fun with this Group! We were honored to be part of this special day. We know Gen and Mark’s future in love will be bright.
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!
When we first met with this couple, there were a few things that stood out. Number one, we knew that Nicole would not be a typical “Bride” by the many DIY ideas that she had in mind and her ‘at ease’ personality. Number two, We knew that everything involved in the decor of this wedding was an adaptation of their love, a symbol of who they really were; their roots!!! When we heard her say ” think wild flowers and mason jars” in response to us asking about her theme, we both grew immediately excited for the big day. The couple was to be married on their property that was flourishing with apple trees. We did their engagement session there during peak apple blossom season. SIGH!!!!! Beautiful setting!!!!!
The big day finally arrived and it was a scorcher! The couple exchanged vows in between two apple trees with a very intimate setting for their guests to gather. The heat and sun did not affect the vows or the romance one bit. I had a tear in my eye as the bride got a little choked up saying her vows. My favorite part of the ceremony was that the couple’s dog was present for it all…. and even posed for a few formal pictures afterwards. The essence of this couple’s love was so real and their ” down to earth” qualities just made everyone feel at home. It was an honor to capture the ceremony!
The majority of the formal pictures were done in a wildflower garden: a hidden gem that the couple had found. It was just so true to this couple’s union! We had a lot of fun in ” the very hot sun”. After the formals we headed to the reception that was actually a DIY project all on its own. A “garage” was completely revamped into a rustic and elegant themed banquet hall. It took my breath away when I walked in the room. The property was of the Bride’s family and it was stunning as well. You could tell that it had been used for many family functions. It was equipped with all of the necessities needed to have a great family party! Again so true to the values of this couple. I must mention that the wedding favors were mason jars filled with homemade jam!!!!!
Congrats Nicole and Mike…. It was so nice to witness your day unfold…and capture the moments as they passed… simply perfect for the two of you!
