Steph and Rick were married on a gorgeous warm summer day back in early July. They had their first look on a boulevard in the middle of Wellington Cres, which literally stopped traffic. I would have to say that first looks are easily my favorite moments of the entire wedding day. Getting to see the pure happy emotion from both the bride and groom really makes our hearts swell, and reconfirms why we do what we do.
After their few moments alone together, we hopped on over the King's head for a few drinks, and some pics, eventually making our way around the exchange, and then out to Pine Ridge Hollow for the ceremony and reception.
The entire day was filled with laughs and good times, especially the speeches - I don't think there was a dry eye in the entire place, from both laughter and the sentimental stories shared.
Pine Ridge was decorated beautifully, as usual, and the day flowed on seamlessly.
Sneaking the bride and groom off for some final photos before we head out for the evening is one of our best suggestions for our couples. It gives us one last chance to capture a few photos in some different lighting, and it gives the new Mr and Mrs a moment or two out of the hustle and bustle of the wedding day.
Congrats to Steph and Rick, it was an honor to have spent the day with you guys, thanks for the laughs!
