Kimberly + Leo | Traditional Inspired Petty Harbour Newfoundland Wedding

They talked about the wedding, six months in advance.
Some said it was foolishness, others said romance.
They bought a little boat and named it Maggie for her Mom.
They shed a tear when they christened her, for Maggie had passed on.
The boat would be a symbol of something old and something new.
It would join them both together, when Kimberly said “I do”.

Every wedding I shoot is unique, stunning and memorable in it’s own way but Kim and Leo’s wedding was something straight out of a story book. A fairytale in it’s own right, a Newfoundland fairytale… involving two people’s love for each other, the cold north atlantic and our beautiful province.

She sailed up to the stage in the make and break
His heart, no longer would have to ache
The band played jigs and reels, by the sea
no one sang “Oh Promise Me”
Kimberly made a lovely bride
She smiled with Leo by her side
The bridesmaids all wore rubber boots
The men wore straps instead of suits
Some folks snickered, others shed a tear or two
But everyone remembers when Kimberly & Leo said “I do”

She is the symbol of another Day
The Island Rooms is where they wed
Two hearts became one on the stage head.

During the ceremony, Kimberly’s mothers very best friends (and extremely eccentric women) came to have a shot of Lambs to christen their little boat named Maggie.

The Navigators were the tunes, and really set the mood for the party. This beautiful spot, Island Rooms of Petty Harbour will eventually become a place to teach our future about the past. From cod fishing, filleting and cooking – and all the household chores in between, Kim and Leo hope to set up a educational, fun and entertaining location to help keep the past in our future!Kimberly & Leo

The beer was wheeled in barrows, the dinner fish and chips
People watched from everywhere, from stage and wharf and cliff
The Lambs was poured and by half past eight
Not even the band could navigate.
There are some that can’t remember the rest of the night, it’s true
But everyone remembers when Kimberly & Leo said “I do”

Victoria + Darryl | Strawberry Hill Rustic Newfoundland Wedding

We’re waiting out a giant storm here in Newfoundland at the moment, so I’m going back to a super bright, warm and romantic day in July, starring Victoria and Darryl. I would love to clone Victoria, because that girl just GOT me. It wasn’t because she shared the same wedding venue, or that her style was so similar to mine but because she understood that to get those “pinterest worthy” shots; sometimes you need to make tiny sacrifices… like darting out in the middle of supper for a few sun drenched shots.

Daryl and Victoria were both so carefree, relaxed and fun to be around that we ended up shooting way into the night. I know it’s not possible for every bride to think about photos in every aspect of planning, but it seems some how Victoria did. From the table decor, to the willingness to go anywhere for the right shot or light, to giving me the free will to capture the wedding day as it was.

I always joke I’m an extended part of the bridal party, because I’m usually with you even more than your maids; and sometimes the Groom on your wedding day! It’s important to feel comfortable and relaxed, just like I’m one of the crowd; so that the shots can be as natural and candid as possible.

Of course I’ll give direction where direction is needed, but I really want you to be yourself! Your wacky, silly, offbeat, fun, ridiculous own self!

I ran up, between courses and whispered into Victoria’s ear: “the sun is setting” her and Darryl pushed back their chairs and dashed out of the tent with me. Sometimes, you gotta let your guests drink that extra glass of wine, between courses so you can get just another minute alone together. Much sun. Very pretty.

Sarah + Shawn | Downtown St. John’s Wedding

I’ve been busy.

I know everyone says that, but I seriously have been flat out. I also kinda got married to the most wicked man alive. More on that later.

Back in June, Sarah & Shawn decided that they liked each other a whole bunch and should celebrate that fact by getting married and doing an awesome job at it.

They invited me along for the ride, it was DEADLY! (For those non-newfs Deadly = Awesome, amazing, wicked, A+)

Holly + Jen | Vintage Lester’s Farm Wedding | Newfoundland

I’m so happy that Holly and Jen’s wedding was one of the first of the seasons, because I was absolutely too excited to wait any longer to shoot this wedding; and these girls have STYLE! What’s better than one bride? Two! What’s better than a first look before a ceremony? This entire day was perfection, straight from a book on beautiful love!

The Leadise Manor was such a beautiful location for the girls to get ready in, and were so gracious in letting us take a few shots around the property.

It was a drizzly day, so just like the proper Newfoundlanders – they had their rubber boots handy!

Piatto was so wonderful for letting us book the enoceta as a get away from the rain.

This ladder was made by Jen’s father with love!

Needing a snack, and loving the vibe – we stopped into Relish Gourmet Burger here in St. John’s for a few fries!

A DIY wedding true to the heart!

More of the girls handy work below!

All baked with love 🙂

I love love Lester’s farm as a location for your wedding ceremony and reception, outdoors or indoors – they aim to please!

I’m really this behind, please don’t judge me. I just can’t go on blogging and not share how beautiful my winter couples were!!!

Melissa and Matt were married two days before Christmas Eve, on a perfect crisp winter day. They were stylish, fun and had a old hollywood style throughout the wedding. All of which was complemented by the fact they’re both lovely people, inside and out!
