Your creativity is immeasurable and your excitement about working with us makes posing for photos fun and enjoyable. You are so genuine!!” – Stephanie & Frank
Stephanie & Frank’s summer wedding was the most perfect day you could ask for. The sun was out and there was a breeze that made being in a suit much more bearable than had it been a scorcher of a day!
It was our first time shooting at the Peel Art Gallery Museum & Archives (PAMA), so we went to scope out the location a few weeks prior. What an amazing space they have there! Not only are there many beautiful nooks to shoot outdoors with the stone buildings, but the inside is like stepping back in time to when Peel’s residents called the building their courthouse and jail! The archways, huge windows and overall vibe of the space was so much fun to work with. It’s such an incredible location for wedding photos if you’re looking to secure a spot in case of rain or just escape the elements of a hot summer day or a cold winter snap. One of the best parts? The photography permit is reasonably priced AND they only have one wedding taking photos in the building at any time.
We had so much fun with Stephanie & Frank and their crew!! They were pros at forgetting about the camera and just spending an incredible day with two people they care so much for.
A huge thank you to Stephanie & Frank for having us be a part of your wedding day. We know you’ve been counting down the days and hours until you could see your photos, so we weren’t going to make you wait the full 4-6 weeks to see them!!
First though, let’s have a look at what our newlyweds had to say about their dream wedding…
My favourite part of the day… was being able to celebrate our special occasion with friends and family. The ability to have all that love and support in one room, the fact that people travelled so far to be there just for us. That is something I will truly cherish forever.
I will never forget…the moment that the priest told me to turn around to see my wife. She was stunning and radiant and I knew i was the luckiest guy in the world.
I least expected… the outpouring of thanks and gratitude and congratulations after the wedding was completed. The days and weeks following the wedding numerous people were calling and thanking us for inviting them, others called to share their favourite moments. That was something I did not expect at all and it was a wonderful surprise.
My favourite part of the day was…. The entire day was perfect, so it’s hard to pick just one. But, if I had to choose I would say our first dance was my favourite part of the day. Frank and I had no trouble agreeing on a song (Tangled Up In You by Stained), and I love sharing that special moment with my husband, surrounded by our closest family and friends.
I’ll never forget…. seeing Frank standing at the altar. I was so nervous that the priest was going to forget to tell him to turn around and that he wouldn’t get to see me walk down the aisle. But, when he finally turned around and looked at me, it was a perfect moment. I was so relieved and calmed by his smile. He looked so handsome standing there waiting for me and this made me even more excited to say our I do’s that morning!
I least expected…. to feel so calm getting ready for the day. I thought I would be nervous the morning of but I felt great! All of our planning and hard work had come together perfectly and it was almost a relief that our big day was finally here. Everything we had dreamed for the day was falling into place and it was such a good feeling.
