Sometimes, he helps her into the dress.
Sometimes, it’s balmy and breezeless during the month of February in Newfoundland.
Sometimes, instead of an officiant – you can have a song.
But you should always, be true to yourselves.
Sometimes I can convince people to get all dressed up and go on a day after adventure. No stress. No timelines. Pure freedom.
When the guests all leave, the anniversary cake has been ate, when the years pass down the road; will you look back on your wedding and remember it as carefree and fun? Will you remember fondly the memories you made with your very best friends and family?
Hayley and Kai will.
They’ll look back and smile at the tiny cabin by the sea, breakfast cooked by Dad, the legion of dogs, a tiny ceremony near the beach, the Jigg’s Dinner at the Twillingate Masonic Temple and the drunken laughter of their nearest and dearest while they slow danced by a fire.
We were made to feel like family, these were our people.
Be true to yourself, especially on your wedding day.
While Reese’s dad was working (mainly so he wouldn’t stop the mess we were going to make) her Mom Lori and I decided to let her eat a cake or two, and take a few photos to celebrate her first year on this earth! What better way to end of an afternoon of cake eating than a bath with your puppy.
I don’t know if I’ve ever laughed this hard at a kid during a shoot, Reese is a never ending bundle of fun.
LOVE the second frame, so much personality shining through. “This girl!!!”
And the sugar kicks in…
Straight to the bath we go!
Not a dry soul in the room at this point..
Michael and Danielle knew how to do it; how to relax, have fun and enjoy their beautiful wedding day to the fullest. Their love is joyous, wonderful and supported by incredible friends and family.
Love Mick’s face in this photo as he sees his bride for the first time.
So, when you get married in the Dominican and all your pictures are of the Dominican… you might want a few somewhere that reminds you of where you come from. Land, sea, beach… fog. Jenna and Tyler brought along their two Chow’s Bella and Bruin for a quick shoot on Norman’s Cove Beach, the week after we returned from down south.
The boys prepped by washing Darryl’s truck. The girls prepped by shooting Sour Puss and Golden Wedding. If there was any nervousness between these two, it was hard to tell. The air hung with excitement and anticipation. We all loaded into speed boats and were brought just off the coast of Newtown to Pinchard’s Island. While this name may not be familiar to you, it’s a name that holds over a hundred years of history for Deanne’s family and she was about to have the first wedding on the island since the the island was resettled in the early 1950’s.
The chariot awaited us.
Have you ever seen a more joyous bride?
The day was a bright one, the sun did it’s best to stay hidden but the sky was just hurtin’.
They were married on the very spot the old Methodist Church stood, which is where the last wedding on the island was held.
But wait, not only is Darryl a dashingly handsome man – he’s a man of service too.
