I think that the Mayflower Curling Club looked a little different last Saturday than it did back on that day in 2002 when Meghan and Kory first met. Filled with family and friends and dressed up to the nines it was the perfect venue for Meghan and Kory’s wedding ceremony. A wedding ceremony is always special, when the place the ceremony held holds this many memories for the couple? Amazing!
I wonder if I’m getting sentimental since being married last year, but I have to say I was glad to have a camera to my face when Meghan’s dad gave her away (the better to hide the tears on my face!!). A lovely, sincere, ceremony- followed by portraits at the club. When Meghan and I talked about portraits for her wedding day and she asked if we could do them at the Curling Club to say I was excited was an understatement! Tell your photographer you want photographs at a place that holds that much meaning for you and is that unique a background?! Yeah, I was pumped.
Meghan and Kory’s bridal party were great fun and game for whatever we asked them to do! And Meghan and Kory- well lets just say it was easy to tell how in love those two are. Not just from the beautiful ceremony – or the look I saw on Kory’s face when Meghan walked down the aisle, but the secret looks I saw them steal and the awareness they always seem to have of each other.
Photographing weddings is a pretty good gig, everyone is happy and the atmosphere of joy surrounding the day is palpable! As a photographer I’m always excited to be a part of it and capture memories for the couple to look back on. I don’t wear rose-coloured glasses though, so I know wedding days aren’t without stress and unexpected complications. There is insight to be had from how people respond to that stress on a wedding day, whether there are problems with a vendor, or you know, the bride gets stung by a hornet during the family photos………… from where I was standing Meghan and Kory are in it for the long run! They were perfectly matched all day, and had family and friends with them at every turn. And really, with family and friends who can put on a show like that on the dance floor you know you’ve got a good bunch 😉
Thank you Meghan and Kory – you were both fantastic! Please enjoy a few of my favourite photos from your day:
