Meagan and I were so excited for Rachel and Andy’s wedding since they are friends AND family. We are so happy for them! Their wedding was definitely reflective of their personalities and had some wonderfully unique touches. Top of the list: it was my first Monday wedding. :)
We had such a great time out at Rachel’s family farm with the girls getting ready and all the busyness of the day. Andrew and the guys met up with us around lunch time and it was special to both of them to be able to do the “first look” at a place they both love. While Andy waited in the clearing of trees, Rach made her way over with her parents and “entourage” in tow. What a great moment – Andy was blown away!
Since these guys are all about enjoying the beauty of the outdoors, we did many of their photos out at the family farm. Rachel knew she wanted the white couch in the middle of the field and it suited her look perfectly. I also love the images in the oat field. Before we headed into the city we stopped at the little country church next door to the farm and some of my favourite images came from this location. We completed the afternoon of shooting at the Concert Hall and the Exchange District.
Rach and Andy decided to hold their ceremony and reception at Niverville Heritage Centre since it reflected the personal style so well. We managed to take a few quick shots by the train tracks before we headed in to get ready for the big moment. What a beautiful location to hold a wedding! We were thrilled to see these two tie the knot and to celebrate with them. I have to say that one little ring-bearer may have stolen the show for a moment for me…but I am a bit biased. ;) The ceremony moved right into the reception and we really enjoyed a fun night with the special couple, as well as all their friends and family.
Rachel and Andy, we are so happy for you as you start your new life together! Thank-you so much for involving us (and Aaron) in your wonderful day. It truly was a privilege. We love you guys!
