Natasha + Jon’s wedding day was the perfect way to wrap up the triple header weekend we had back in September. Not only was it a beautiful day in terms of the weather, but these two are just about the sweetest people ever! And to make things even better, they surrounded themselves with even more awesome people!
The wonderful Master of Ceremonies for Jessica + Steve’s wedding reception kicked off the festivities by letting everyone know that the Captain had put on the fasten seat belt sign and then proceeded to outline where everyone could find the emergency exits. In fact, there were more than a few flight jokes throughout their entire wedding day, but really that should have been expected considering that both the bride and groom (and several other guests) work for (and met at) Porter Airlines. And luckily, despite the shenanigans and general fun-nature of the entire wedding party, Steve only used his pilot voice for fun and didn’t have to whip it out to get anyone back in line throughout the day.
I mentioned in their sneak peek just how fantastic Krysten + Jon are and how much they had us laughing during their wedding day. I actually brought up the fact that as I was putting together said sneak peek, I scrolled through a few photos in particular that made me laugh, and that happened so many times again as I was editing their session and putting the final touches on everything. I love it when I stumble across a hilarious image, or one that reminds me of such a great day, so thanks guys!
I love when couples decided to infuse elements from their lives together into their wedding day. Whether it be favours that include some of their favourite things, or personalized vows that include inside jokes and stories, making your wedding day your own really sets it apart from any other wedding out there. And I absolutely adore the ways Shannon + Kevin decided to make their wedding day their own by infusing parts of their proposal story and even how they met into the main events.
The weather on the day of Krysten + Jon’s engagement session wasn’t looking the best as I headed out of the house, but in the end it worked out quite nicely. And it was the same leading up to their wedding day. The forecast was calling for not only rain, but thunderstorms on Saturday, and I am so glad it changed (I am thanking the anti-rain dancing that we [and I am sure all the other Ottawa photographers] were doing leading up to the weekend) – although to be honest, I could have done with a little less humidity, but beggars can’t be choosers.
