I am so excited to share this wedding with you today. This is the very first wedding of my 2017 season and the first time I was a second shooter!
This wedding was with Danielle from Danielle Mahoney Photography for the celebration of Jenny + Kyle. I started my day with the eight gentlemen, you heard me, eight groomsmen that were there to support Kyle on his big day! I met Kyle at his parents home. Everyone started with a delicious home cooked meal, some photos, trying to get the family bird from the cage and a pre-wedding toast to the groom. Every single on of them were so kind and funny, and an overall pleasure to be around. Before I knew it, it was time to head to the ceremony venue to meet Danielle and the beautiful bride Jenny.
I met Danielle at Jenny's family's property where she grew up, located just outside of London. As farmers, Jenny grew up climbing trees, swimming and learning there; it was the perfect spot for their beautiful and intimate outdoor wedding. After some bridal party pictures, it was time for the ceremony. Earlier in the day, London received a Severe Thunder Storm Warning and my radio was interrupted by an emergency weather alert calling for a tornado. Thankfully, the rain held off and the weather was perfect for Jenny + Kyle's day.
Then we were off to the reception at the Ukrainian Hall in London, ON to celebrate. After a delicious dinner, beautiful words spoken (and sung!) by the bridal party, and a flash mob, the energetic crowd spent the rest of the night on their feet dancing. It was a beautiful wedding, bursting with love and I feel so honoured to have been in attendance. I also learnt so much from Danielle throughout the day like how to utilize my memory cards best, tips for using my new flash and new posing techniques. I am so excited to work with her again in August!
Here are my favourites from this incredible day. I love them and I know you will too.
Until next time,
