Now that Christmas is gone, but the snow is still here to say for another couple of months - most Canadians are now back to thinking about the glory days of summer. And boy was this late-summer shoot the ultimate Canadian experience. Rebecca & Emil took us took a cottage in Quebec where basked in the beautiful forests, fields and the water, had a bonfire, and finished the night off with a sunset swim in the lake. Definitely an evening well spent.
If you have the opportunity to get married on a family orchard, you should definitely not pass that up. Rosalind & Jeff's beautiful day is a perfect example of how wonderful it is. They got a tiny bit of rain (just enough to make it lucky, but without dampening any spirits or chairs) and the rest of the evening was spent sipping cocktails beside a peach grove and enjoying the company of family and friends. Also, we highly recommend confetti (and confetti guns), and non-Christmas crackers to be a part of your wedding. Make it a whole confetti party, if you will.
One of our favourite things about being involved in weddings is that you get to really see into people's lives. Every decision in putting the wedding together and interactions between the couple and their friends & family play a role. Kari & Taylor's wedding certainly showcased their love for each other while keeping everything so authentic. Their "big" day started off with a tearful first look, a ceremony by the water that the wind just could not hinder and ended in an intimate backyard gathering. Any casual, outdoorsy people can agree - the best way to spend an evening is with BBQ, a bonfire and dancing the night away under the stars.
