What’s better than capturing the wedding day of an absolutely wonderful couple at a beautiful venue? Capturing the wedding day of a wonderful couple at a beautiful venue AND including their dog in the first look, ceremony and portraits!!
When Niki first mentioned that she and Steve would be including their pup Oscar in their wedding day I was completely on board. And then when I got to meet this happy puppers I was completely smitten with him and instantly understood why he HAD to be a part of the big day!
I mean, if you follow along with us even a little bit, you have probably noticed how much we love our own dog Kaylee. Both Dave and I will take any chance we get to chat about our furry little baby (or to show off photos from her many shoots), so of course I understood the need to include their four-legged family member in their wedding. It just wouldn’t have been complete without Oscar who was such a good boy all day long too!
I would also like to thank Mother Nature for allowing a handful of trees on the Strathmere property to be in their full Fall glory. I had to have the entire wedding party trek out to the road because as I drove into the parking lot I found the perfect fall-colour-filled trees along the laneway. We shouted out for incoming cars as we shot making sure not only that we were safe, but also that we weren’t holding up the traffic for very long (thankful that this is a very quiet road and that everyone was my age so we all understood the ‘car‘ reference from Wayne’s World).
If you ignore the weather, it really was the perfect day. I am so incredibly happy that I wasn’t already booked for this date when Niki reached out to me because I would have been oh so very sad to have missed being able to capture it all for them, including Niki’s sister (and past SBP Bride) who joined remotely and got to be a part of the ceremony!
Thanks to all of these amazing vendors who helped make this wedding possible!
