If you have been fortunate enough to attend a wedding at Strathmere then you probably already know that it actually houses 3 separate venues: The Inn, The Garden House and the Lodge. They all have their own unique features and each tend to attract its own type of couple, but for the longest time we had only ever shot weddings at The Inn and the Lodge and that middle site was rather elusive to us as we just didn’t get any inquiries for it (let alone bookings). And as much as I like the Inn and Lodge, I was eager to have the full set, so to speak.
But of course, as the blog title would suggest, thanks to Courteney + Steve’s fantastic wedding day we now have the full set of Strathmere sites. But so much better than that, is the fact that we got to be part of a truly special wedding day, one that we will remember for years to come!
As Courteney + Steve were planning their wedding day, she kept a list of various photos she saw online that she really loved and when it was time for us to chat timelines and details about their coverage, she sent them over to me. Most of them fit right in with our regular shot-list and weren’t a problem whatsoever, but there was one that stood out as extra special. An image of Courteney in her dress with a photo of her dad who passed away. This obviously wasn’t a problem by any means, it was clearly a very important shot and one that I was honoured to be able to capture (in our own way of course) for this incredibly sweet bride.
Courteney + Steve had planned so many wonderful details and moments throughout their wedding day and definitely filled it with some incredibly fun people who really knew how to party (and how to have a great time in our photobooth). As I mentioned in their sneak peek, I had been looking forward to this wedding day since I captured their engagement session as Courteney + Steve did such a wonderful job then, and they did an even more amazing job on their wedding day!!
