Abigail and Kyle’s Wedding

When Abigail contacted me about photographing her wedding, she told me she would be getting married on Halloween day, and that they would be having a Masquerade themed wedding, needless to say I was so excited! The weather that day wasn’t the best it was a cool, dark day compared to the few days prior, but it was Halloween day, and we are in Canada! It almost always rains or snows that day, and of course it did end up raining.

Everything took place at Hotel Metro. A newer, very modern looking hotel in the heart of downtown London, Ontario. The room had a beautiful brick wall, and a very big window with a nice open concept. The ladies had their hair and makeup done in the room, and I snagged a few shots. The Bride handmade her and the Bridesmaids bouquets, I loved the colours! They were a nice pop to the neutral coloured dresses.

It was a very quaint and intimate Wedding with close family and friends. The ceremony was held in the Atrium of the hotel, its a very large open room with big windows at the top that lets in lots of daylight. They had a violinist playing their music for them. It was very sweet. They walked down the isle to Marry You by Bruno Mars. The backdrop was a handmade scroll that the Bride had made.

I was able to get some family and group photos for them inside the room before the ceremony, and afterwards in the Atrium since it was raining outside.

They had a nice sit down diner at Blu Duby the restaurant within hotel, along with the with their friends and family and some cute decor they had incorporated at their tables. They even had their own cute homemade Wedding Cake. I had the Bride and Groom sneak outside and bare the cool rainy weather for a quick “Thank You” photo.

Thanks for allowing me to capture your big day guys! It was a beautiful event and you were all gorgeous!

Sara and Jason’s Wedding

Sara and Jason had a beautiful wedding at the Slit Barn in Cambridge. Its an old property with lots of greenery. The old restored barn was beautifully decorated with lots of flowers in mason jars, a teacup display for the evening coffee and tea, and they even had a live band!

We lucked out with the weather has it had been very hot the few days prior but thankfully we got a nice break from the heat and it was just a perfect sunny day!

The girls had to get ready for the big day! Hair and makeup can be time consuming, but It was an evening wedding, starting at 7:00 pm, so we had lots of time.

The ceremony was held outside, outback of the restored home that is also on the property. They had nice wood benches, and along the isle they had white lanterns, along with a row of hay bales at the front covered with white cloth. There were beautiful flower arrangements that were sitting on top of old barrels. It was very country chic.

Sara and Jason had a special log cutting during the ceremony. The log cutting is meant to symbolize the first obstacle they will over come together as a married couple. Its a tradition at German weddings, and while these two are not German, it was a very lovely idea, and something I had never seen before!

They then did the traditional kissing of the Bride, and they were officially married. Jason’s dad played live while they walked down the isle to celebrate their union.

We were able to get lots of family photos for them. They both have very welcoming families. Everyone was having fun, but eventually Kye; Sara’s boy, just wasn’t having it anymore. He wanted to run around and play, which I don’t blame him, I’d rather not have my photo taken a hundred times either!

The wedding party was looking great! The ladies had beautiful pastel coloured dresses, and the men had blue toned suites. These guys were not afraid to be silly, which was so fun!

The reception was held in the actual barn itself. They had nice chandeliers lit up, and other string lights hung around the place. They had lots of yummy treats! I felt like a kid in a candy store. Sour keys, Coke Bottles, Popeye Cigarettes, cupcakes and other baked goodies. You could get a sugar rush just looking at it all!

They had some lovely speeches, and then it was time to dance and party!

And last but not least the gorgeous couple!
