Kelly & Josh

21 Aug

When I first met with Kelly and Josh they told me of their secret plans to elope which would then be followed up with a reception later in the summer at the Chanterelle. The elopement was photographed and displayed as a slideshow in the lounge, and was described during speeches – it sounded like the most special, fun, and adventurous time.

Speeches also highlighted the love and respect the family has for these two. They are beyond proud of and so happy for the new couple.

I loved this after-elopement party at the Chanterelle – and there could be no better space for it as Kelly is the amazing and talented manager of this coveted venue!

Congrats ❤

What a unique venue for a ceremony! Sarah and Jeff chose to exchange vows in PACI (now the law building for Lakehead) because of past school memories in the old and gorgeous building. It was such a fun day.

There was a beautiful wedding at the Chanterelle this past Saturday.  The groom couldn’t keep his eyes off his beautiful bride.

Aundrea & Andrew – Red Lake Wedding

27 Jul

So this wedding was an adventure! It involved travel to a new place and a weekend away from Thunder Bay.

It was an epic day, starting first thing in the morning and going late into the night.  Hottest day ever (even though Thunder Bay has been having a hot summer I wasn’t prepared for 34 degrees in the shade all day), but a relieving thunderstorm rolled in late evening bringing some rain and an impressive lightning show over the lake.

Noteworthy moments: opening matching robes at the salon, little flower girls getting make up, father-son interactions, dad’s first look at Aundrea (who didn’t cry??), beautiful vows, Aundrea’s vows to her step-son (yes I cried!), fantastic speeches (someone tell Pat that was the best best-mans’ speech I have ever heard), thunder and lightning, great dance party, and Brodie’s dance moves.

Last wedding of the year for me and it was a cute one! Their family and friends were pretty happy to see these two get hitched.  I was over the moon with the opportunity to bring them to Prime for photos! #midweddinggelatodate

Curniss and Chris

27 Oct

It can be common to see a couple tie their interests and tastes into their weddings.  It might be part of their theme – country, modern, classy, or in wedding favours, chosen flowers, etc.

Being a very outdoorsy couple, (you can read about their adventures over at Curniss and Chris originally did their ceremony on the Giant, doing a hike in with a couple close friends and someone to record it all.  We got to watch that film at the “official” friends and family ceremony at the Finlandia Hall.

It was a very northwestern Ontario party.  Pinetree Catering’s food truck for dinner, all their flowers were GROWN LOCALLY by a family friend (so beautiful and smelled amazing), the festivities took place downtown Port Arthur, close to our beautiful lake.

So thankful I got to be your photographer, guys!  Congratulations!
