We are pretty lucky in that we get to capture wedding days for couples who are madly in love with one another. Pretty much every wedding day includes me adoring how they smile when they catch each others eye or how they make each other laugh with the slightest of ease. But Lisa + Joe’s wedding day seemed extra special for some reason, and honestly I couldn’t quite put my finger on it until it came time for the ring exchange during their ceremony.
August 18, 2018 was definitely the date we had the absolute most inquiries for this year. Every year over the past little while has had a neat looking date and this year so many couples wanted 18/08/18 on their invites. Now, I know a lot of couples got married on this day, and I am sure they were some really good ones out there too, but I really do think Dave and I hit the jackpot as we got to work with Lindsay + Shawn and their absolutely wonderful group of family and friends. So yeah, I think we won!
“It is a love based of giving and receiving as well as having and sharing. And the love that they give and have is shared and received. And through this having and giving and sharing and receiving, we too can share and love and have…and receive.”
Dave and I have been waiting so long for someone to quote Joey Tribbiani as part of their wedding day speech and Maid of Honour Kaitlin finally made our day!! Not only did Christine + John’s wedding day have some classic speeches, but these wonderfully sweet people were an absolutely joy to work with again. And despite the heat and humidity, everyone had such a great time all day long!
Over the last couple years we have started capturing more and more weddings in the Ottawa Valley. Most of these are in Perth and the nearby area, and I honestly couldn’t be happier about this as the area is absolutely gorgeous!!
The nature in the area is stunning and the little town of Perth itself is so adorable! It also has one of my favourite parks of all time in it – Stewart Park. Which, as luck would have it, happens to be where Lindsay + Shawn wanted to do their engagement session.
The off-season in the wedding industry is a time to get caught up on all the behind the scenes tasks that are required to run a business like paperwork, taxes, website updates, etc. But it is also the time when vendors get to collaborate together and have a little fun!
