Jenn + Steve’s wedding day started off with clear weather, then moved into freezing rain/slush, and ended up having a mini-blizzard right in the middle of it! In fact, at one point in the day, the snowflakes were so dense and large that they looked completely fake (like they were made of foam and a wind machine)! Jenn wanted snow on her wedding day and boy-oh-boy did she get it! This wonderfully sweet couple definitely made the most of it during their portrait portion of the day! Getting completely drenched by the snow was definitely worth the shots we got out in that less than pleasant weather.⠀
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.
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.
So I am not entirely sure why but so far this year I have been getting so incredibly nervous before we head out to weddings (or sessions in general). Now, I am a kind of anxious person to begin with when it comes to plans and making sure I am on time, but when it came to Shannon + Kevin’s wedding day I was extra worked up all morning for what seemed like no reason at all.
There were so many amazingly touching moments during Karen + Jay’s wedding. So many in fact that as I was editing their photos, I would stumble across one that would remind me of a moment, and I would scribble a note about how I wanted to write about it for their blog post. So I now have a list as long as my arm full of just the sweetest little moments from their wedding day and I am completely filled with joy and warmth when I read through it.
