Deanne and Steve’s wedding was my last official wedding of the season in September and it was spectacular! I’ve always been a sucker for guys in kilts, and boy was I not disappointed! 😉 Deanne was also pretty darned amazing in a gorgeous Pronovias dress (and it had straps! I hope dresses with straps are the next big thing for wedding wear) and she was sporting half an ocean worth of pearls – so very glamourous! Went so very well with the gorgeous bouquet from Marlow & Richards.
We left the Hotel MacDonald to begin the processional, complete with a rockin’ bagpiper, to parade through downtown to the Citadel Theatre for the wedding ceremony. I was joined by the very awesome Ryan Kelly from Ryan + Beth Photographers to help me document this fabulous day (Thanks Ryan, you rule!!). After the ceremony, we shot photos with the family near the waterfall downstairs at the theatre before heading off to Churchill Square and to my favourite spot near 95 St to shoot photos with the wedding party before returning back to the hotel to just shoot Steve and Deanne together. After the photos were done, we wandered in to the gorgeously decorated reception at the Empire Ballroom (overseen by Juli of A Modern Proposal and linens from Special Event Rentals) and enjoyed a magnificent 5 course meal and an entertaining round of speeches before the party got started for the night. My favourite part of the night was Steve’s twist on the removal of the garter… he was wearing it while Deanne got to take it off him! I love a good twist on a tradition!
It was a rocking good time and I’m so happy we got to be there to capture it all! Congratulations Steve and Deanne!
