Well now that life as settled back down, it is time to play catch-up on all the wonderful weddings and sessions I have done and not had time to post!!
Jacquie and Cooper’s big day followed the same weather pattern as the majority of the weddings I have had the privilege to shoot this year…freaking gorgeous!! The sun was shining. It was hot, but not offensively so. When I arrived at Jacquie’s parents’ house, I was met by the most relaxed bride I have ever met. Hair was done, make up was done and they were laughing and eating and if it weren’t for the bouquets in the living room and the bridesmaid dresses hung everywhere, you wouldn’t even have known it was a wedding day. To someone now accustomed to walking in to wedding mayhem, it was a breath of fresh air!
When the girls were dressed, we had some photo fun…including Jacquie’s dad’s vintage red convertible (hello awesomeness!!) before I headed off to meet the guys at the Brantford Golf & Country Club.
If you have never been to the BGCC, it has quite possibly the nicest view in all of Brant County (with the exception of the hillbilly trailer park at the bottom of the hill). It sits up on the ridge overlooking the Grand River and you can see for miles. Even better? It faces west, so the sunset is spectacular!
The ceremony was held in the beautiful foyer of the club and we toured around the grounds for some wedding photo fun afterwards and even met up with the bride and groom’s fur babies for some official family photos! Props to the groomsman who broke his ankle the night before and still toughed it out for the day without complaining…he did a great job of hiding how sore he was in the photos! That’s dedication!
I also need to give a quick shout out to Jacquie’s family that traveled all the way from Scotland to celebrate with Jacquie and Cooper! Aunt Jean killed it on the dance floor and it’s not everyday you see dudes rocking the kilts.This Scottish-Canadian was loving it!
Did I mention that the lovebirds had the BEST head table backdrop EVER? They must have been channeling their inner Will Ferrell when they came up with the Old School inspired masterpiece! Loved it!
I had a lot of fun with Jacquie and Cooper and all of their family and friends. If I gave out awards for things, they would definitely be in the running for best MC, best head table backdrop, best wedding signage, best wedding feast and best dance party! It was a fantastic day and I was very happy to have had the opportunity to capture it for them!
Congratulations Jacquie and Cooper! Enjoy your sneak peek….FINALLY!!
