Jenn & Kevin’s wedding was a beautiful late summer day, with an intimate ceremony down by the lake, a lot of time dedicated to photos (yeah!) and an informal reception, al fresco style at a nearby camp.
A beautiful hand-fasting ceremony, also “to tie the knot.”
I asked them to channel their inner Mary Poppins and not-so-secretly this photo turned out to be one of my favourites.
We got this shot in one go (after making sure everyone had a clear space to throw their umbrella without any maiming). Let me tell you, working with this couple was a dream. Jenn is a theatre director and she brought a brilliant vision and a brilliant plan (and all the umbrellas).
Here’s where I tell you about this amazing wedding party. Unbelievable. These friends not only stood up for this couple, they helped and hosted this wedding. Lists being made, lists being crossed off, cars being packed, people being driven, chairs being set up or taken down, gourmet picnics (havarti! smoked turkey! raspberries!) for the midday lunch in the field, decorations created, hung and re-strung… this wedding party did it all, and all with a sincere love for the couple.
Kevin & Jenn have such genuine hearts. There is a comfort with who they are, where they’ve come from, what they’ve come through, and what they want from life. From parasols, to kilts, to picnics, to rock-paper-scissors contests, to duelling matches in canola fields, to twirling skirts in the meadow – I love that they are unabashedly who they are.
