Well… I can hardly believe it, but this was my last wedding of 2013!! Crazy eh? I can’t believe 2013 is coming to a close, but there is so much more goodness to come in 2014!
The moment I met Katie and Chris, I knew that we were going to be good friends. We had a ridiculous amount of fun at their engagement session, and that made me eagerly anticipate their wedding for the whole year. Katie and Chris are both paramedics, and SO incredibly passionate about their work. It is so inspiring and exciting to hear them speak about their careers in such a positive light! It is so awesome to be able to share your work and passion with your life partner.
The day started bright and early with bridal yoga. How awesome is this idea? I thought it was fantastic, and such a great way to start the day. The guys went golfing, which you often hear of, but the ladies usually just wake up and start hair and make-up! I lovved this private class just for them. Wedding days fly by so quickly, it was nice to be able to really live in the moment, and start the day off nice and slow before all the fun chaos starts. After we went back to Katie’s house, and hair and make up began, my favourite moment happened. Katie was talking about how she didn’t sleep very well because Chris wasn’t there. Then, she started talking about Chris. She wasn’t talking to one person in particular. “He is my comfort. He is my person. He is my best friend,” all said with her hand on her heart. I was like okay Tamara, hold the tears, we aren’t even at the ceremony yet. But after getting to know them as a couple, and hearing her say these words, it just made me realize how strong their bond was and how true their love is. It was such a sweet, special moment, that even Chris’s mum talked about it in her touching speech later that evening.
This little guy was like my sidekick for the entire morning. I wish ALL cats were like this one.
Katie and Chris’s wedding was at the wonderful Hamilton Art Gallery, which was so beautiful and unique! And their decor was so fun, and reflected Katie and Chris so well.
All happy tears 🙂
I will be honest. The day was far from dry…it actually poured rain almost the whole day! BUT, we were still able to get outside and get some beautiful photos.
I loved this moment!
So these two have a very serious love of Diet Coke. I was pretty excited to see the oldschool bottles!
THE RAIN FINALLY STOPPED!!! We took that opportunity to go back outside and capture these romantic images.
Katie and Chris, I have a deep love for the two of you. As I write this post, I realize that I miss you both already, and I really hope that we can get together soon!! I had SO much fun getting to know you both, and becoming friends. Thank you for inviting me into your world to capture some of the most special moments of your life. I have nothing but love and gratitude to give!! Wishing you endless love, giggles, and bear hugs.
PS. I would love to know what you think of this shoot! Comments are welcomed! 🙂
