I just knew Carolyn was going to be a gorgeous bride; look below and I think you’ll have to agree with me!
I’ve been looking forward to doing Carolyn and Preston’s wedding for a while. I’ve known Carolyn for several years and I’ve gotten to know Preston better since their engagement. They truly are a wonderful couple who are meant for each other! It was a pleasure to shoot their wedding.
After starting the day out at Sets on Fort and the Clarion Hotel, we headed to Bruce Park with the girls before the ceremony. This was my first time shooting there and I really enjoyed the peaceful location and the amount of shade it offered on a very bright and warm day. Carolyn chose to use pops of yellow against her bridesmaids’ classic black dresses and I think the colour combination stood out really well.
Their ceremony was short and sweet but offered many tearful moments. Luckily Carolyn doesn’t do the “ugly cry”… she looked great even when there were tears in her eyes! These two definitely wanted a more rural, classic feel to their images so we stayed around the Headingly area immediately after the wedding and then headed to the Legislative Building. Even though these are popular locations that my couples tend to choose there is always an opportunity to do something different and I enjoyed finding new angles and shots to include for Carolyn and Preston.
The reception was at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club. What a perfect location for a summer night reception! The formal part was full of fun moments and heart-felt speeches before the party got really started with the dance. All evening their guests were able to mingle both inside and out, enjoying the outdoor patio just off the banquet area. I love it when it works out to get some of those sunset shots after the hustle and bustle of the day is over and that’s how it ended up for Carolyn and Preston.
Thanks so much for choosing me to be a part of your special day! Meagan and I had a wonderful time spending the wedding day as well as the reception with you guys. I hope you love the images as much as I do. :)
