There are few days in Newfoundland that can be called real scorchers, Kerilyn and Blaine happened to be married on one of those fiery days. In what may be the most vibrant and colorful wedding I’ve photographed, these two adorable lovebirds had a day full of laughter, adventure and love.
This was awesome.
The day after Laura & Jon’s beautiful St. John’s wedding, we did what every man wants to do the morning after his wedding – MORE PICTURES! Just kidding, Jon was a good sport while Laura and I had the morning of our lives getting a little more casual and a whole lot more wet.
They let their hair down, and enjoyed a morning in the sun.
Kevin put his suit on, fixed his tie and put in his cufflinks right beside Megan, who got into her dress, put on her shoes and earrings. Conventional was out the window. He makes her laugh, a real laugh, one right from the belly. She makes him smile the moment his eyes reach hers.
If you were wondering, yup – they are green Hydrangea! Kevin is wearing a small succulent too, love the different bouquet and Groom’s flower.
Their wedding dinner was held the following evening at the YellowBelly – however I was shooting another wedding here in St. John’s, so we popped downtown to get a few shots on the premises.
The Rooms is a BEAUTIFUL location for a small wedding like Kevin and Megan’s – especially on a bright day, the light is just dreamy.
I’ve missed blogging, there’s a few more weddings I have yet to blog before this one… but I decided to give in.
I’ll never forget the email from Renee that told me not only would I be meeting her to discuss shooting her wedding, but her best friend Barbara to shoot her’s too! From that moment Renee’s wedding has stood out in my head as one I was anticipating shooting with excitement. (Barbara’s too of course!!!) Most of my weddings I go in a hired photographer and leave feeling like family, and Brad and Renee’s wedding was no exception.
“The one thing I’m not worried about is my photography. I know you got this” Renee said as she slipped out my door a week before her wedding, and boy did we ever “get this”. I love weddings where we laugh, have adventures and fun. Weddings are supposed to be about your love and commitment to one and another – you’re supposed to have a fricken killer wedding day. Brad and Renee laughed, joked, smiled and climbed their way through their wedding day, leaving me to believe their marriage will be full of the same kind of love.
Weddings were never supposed to start on time anyway… 😉
Her proud papa.
What do you do while you wait for your dance floor to be cleared? Go to the fair of course. They wouldn’t let us in the bouncy castles, but a big thank you to Thomas Amusements for all the free hop on rides 😉
On a day in mid-December, we drove to Green’s Harbour (near my home town) and shot a beautiful wedding (and did I forget to mention it was 6 degrees?) Ian and Jenelle themselves, are incredible people – but what makes them a family is their energetic little boy Tyson. I wish all of my December weddings are as unique and fun (and warm) as this one was.
With everything perfect in place, a few quick shots with a nervous smirks, it’s her two men who really brings out the big smiles.
Tyson getting the finishing touches on his tie, he has a big role today.
He has to be there when his mom and dad tie the knot!
Obviously, in his wise age he had advice to give to mommy.
Ian, abided by the power of Wine, stepped up and sang to his new wife John Prine’s “In Spite of Ourselves” in one of the cutest romantic gesture I’ve ever seen.
I was told by Chris and Kim that Chris was not a picture guy, I was told he does the Chandler in every picture taken – so needless to say I thought I would have my hands full on their wedding day. However, their wedding day was filled with with great weather, so much laughter and love – and Chris being phenomenal in front of the camera (Kim too, but she’s stunning so what do you expect!?!)
Chris and Kim were married on the their 10 year anniversary of being together, which is an increasingly cute trend that I fully support. Throughout the day Chris would exclaim out loud to the world that he had the most beautiful bride in the world, which made me absolutely giddy to hear. Their wedding was insanely fun, and the bridal party were one of the best bunch of people I’ve spent the day with to date! Check out their beautiful wedding in Upper Island Cove.
The guys decided that Chris was to be carried to the church, in the event his legs stopped working.
Kim’s eyes blew me away! Such an incredible color!
It was a little too windy for Kim to jump out on the trampoline, but her girls had it covered for her.
I loveeeee my 70-200mm 2.8 lens for shots like this, I step back and let nature take its course.
This farm has quickly become one of my favorite places ‘around the bay’. Amazing rustic feel to it!
The reception hall was so incredible, the details, the damask table runners and the individual cupcakes that me and emily may have made off with a few extras of…
Remember when I shot that engagement session in Harbour Grace with fantastic light and two really good looking people that made you really jealous of how cute they were together? They decided to go ahead and get married and let me tell you – they sure do know how to throw one kick ass wedding. In short; a beautiful bride, a beautiful brunch, Swarovski bling, STUNNING dress, a handsome groom, lots of love and laughter, a Stanley cup champion, incredible bridal party, smokey the bear.. and oh hell, I’m gonna just show you the shots!
Lori’s smile killed me – she smiled from the moment I got there until the moment I left, absolutely stunning!
When we arrived at Lori’s parents house, a feast awaited us!
Don’t get me started on my absolute LOVE for these shoes, Lori definitely hit a soft spot in style with me and Emily.
Mark surprised Lori with a stunning Swarvoski bracelet – serious bling! (I’d be crying too if I opened up a box to see that!)
This adorable little guy kinda gave way and got a little bored half way through the ceremony.
So did these little guys.
Ladies and gentleman, I love bridesmaids. I love them even more when champagne is involved.
Mark apparently likes to burn down cabins?
Father and Daughter dances have a little place in my heart, and when I can capture shots like this I get a little emotional.
Thank you Mark & Lori for letting me and Emily become part of your family on your wedding day, and hopefully for years to come. xo.
