When these two amazing people approached me to shoot their country wedding, I was a little daunted at first…You see, Andrew is a photographer also (you can view his work HERE), and so of course it was a little intimidating! At the same time I was honoured to have been chosen, and that is always the case with any couple. As a wedding photographer I get to be a big part of a very special day for so many people. I’m there for so many amazing, emotional, & touching moments. I share in the laughter & the tears. There is no doubt, wedding photography really is a one-of-a-kind job.
Their big day was going to take place on the property where Andrew grew up, just outside of North Bay, Ontario. It was a beautiful place, rolling landscape, old barn buildings, and they really put some amazing work into the decor, which matched their style perfectly. Cowboy boots, vinyl albums, and beer bottlecaps all had their part as you will see in the photos. Cecil’s Brewhouse & Kitchen catered the event, and they always do an amazing job. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy many of their dinners! Rebecca looked just incredible. She had her hair done by JBL & Associates, and makeup was by Mani-Pedi Plus. Andrew is lucky to work with Jason, who runs Kaleidoscope DJ Service, and he naturally was the entertainment long into the night. Of course, an outdoor backyard wedding wouldn’t be complete without tents! For any North Bay area couples looking at doing the same, they rented theirs through the Bonfield Lions Club.
The day was spectacular, and I loved hanging out with this great group of people. You can really tell they are a very loving couple, with a fun group of close friends & family. Probably the highlight of shooting this wedding was when we went to a nearby farm for photos and an Alpaca photobombed us. And I won’t get into too much detail about how one of the horses bit the grooms finger!
Enjoy the photos!
Thanks again to Andrew & Rebecca for inviting me to be a part of their beautiful day. I had a hard time narrowing down the photos from the wedding, as there were so many that I really loved! I hope you enjoyed viewing them & please leave me a comment below if you did!
