With only a small handful of weddings left this year, Dave and I are officially heading towards the end of our 2017 season. And as always I am both looking forward to the break for a little while (and the chance to catch up on some admin tasks during the off-season), and sad that we won’t be capturing wedding days most weekends (at least not for a couple months). But all of that is for a later date, as we still have a few couples left this month and boy-oh-boy are they ever great couples with absolutely stunning wedding days planned!!
There are so many little things we get to witness throughout each wedding day we are a part of that really lets us know that our couple is such a great fit for one another. And that was the case with Angela + Paul too, like when I would catch one of them staring oh so lovingly at the other when someone mentioned them, the oh so sweet kisses they gave each other all through the day, and of course the immense joy and anticipation they both had before they walked down the aisle to say I do. But I think the very best example of how perfect these two are together was their vows – because when you write your vows individually and secretly, and they still come out so similar, that’s a perfect fit!
When I first meet with our couples it is normally pretty easy for me to get a feel for how their wedding day is going to go. And by that I mean, is it going to be a super relaxed and chill kind of day, a hilariously fun kind of day, a well-oiled machine kind of day, etc., etc., etc. (or some combination thereof). So when I sat down with Angela + Paul all those months ago, I knew right away what kind of day their wedding was going to be, and that was an absolutely incredible kind of day!!
Weddings with themes can sometimes be tricky to plan. How do you know where to draw the line so that your guests can see the theme and ideas you had without bashing them in the head with it all and becoming cheesy? Well just ask Ashley + Kurt, because these two put together a beautiful wedding with a classic vintage feel.
The start of a wedding day is one of my favourite times. When I show up to start bridal prep coverage I walk into a house full of excitement and anticipation. And then I get to play around with all the pretties! Bridesmaids dresses, rings, flowers, paper goods and of course, the bridal gown. Putting these things together is really fun for me, and Lisa definitely made it easy too.
