Carolyne and I go back to when she was a bridesmaid and I was the wedding photographer. Shortly thereafter she contacted me to see if I was available for her wedding on Labour Day weekend 2017. It was to be at her parent’s expansive property and the ceremony outdoors with a tent reception. All I heard was “space and natural light!” So of course I said YES!
The property was A-MAZING! As I drove down the long driveway I couldn’t believe my luck…I was getting to spend the day shooting in this beautiful location and with a great group of ladies. It’s always fun to work with people you’ve photographed in the past…there is an ease and comfort level amongst everyone, which leads to great images.
The ceremony was lovely and once it was done we hopped in our vehicles and headed to a private property for wedding party photos and then some solo images of the Bride and Groom. The weather was perfect – warm and sunny – and we were able to capture some gorgeous images before heading back to the reception.
Now the reception…the tent was set-up so beautifully that I could have photographed it forever! Swaths of cream, peach and gold fabric were everywhere and coordinated so perfectly with the table settings and Carolyne’s massive bouquet (www.kellysfloraldesign.com). It really was a sight to behold! There was also an outdoor area with tables, casual seating and warm blankets for those guests who wanted to sneak away for a conversation or quiet time.
Just before the sun began to set, Carolyne, Dave and I snuck away for a few minutes. The images of them, her parent’s property and the sunset as a backdrop, are some of my favourites ever taken. They turned out perfectly…just like the entire day. Thanks again Carolyne and Dave for choosing me to capture your wedding xo
