Kevin and Rebekah's Big Day
This day - August 17 - was sunny and gorgeously warm after a stretch of unseasonably cool weather for August. I started off my day at a cottage near Rosseau where Rebekah and her bridesmaids were getting ready. Hair and make-up and breakfast were all in full swing. Texts were being sent and received as flowers and family members fluttered around. The place was buzzing with the drone of hair dryers as I got going.
Rebekah's dress and jewellery, plus a few quick photos outside the cottage. The last shot is with Rebekah's niece, the flower girl.
Kevin and Rebekah decided to meet up at Rosseau Lake College, a private school in the area that Rebekah's grandpa taught at a number of years ago. The property had endless opportunities for photo spots. Here are my favourites, including R&K's first look on the dock.
We stopped in downtown Rosseau, which is comprised of the General Store plus a few others. There was a barn just down the street that made for another unique set of photos.
The ceremony took place in an old church in small town a few minutes outside Rosseau proper.
Afterwards, everyone headed back to Rosseau to a classy old hall that has stood for nearly 100 years in the town. The basement doubles as the town library. The food was excellent (compliments to the chef on the gravy and roast beef in particular) and the evening was full of laughs and tears, with the odd jab thrown in good fun.
I feel pretty great on days like this one. Being there to see a groom face his bride for the first time is an experience that sticks with you. The same goes for seeing 'the kiss' or even something less obviously like noticing newlyweds play with their ring finger, checking the feel of the band unconsciously. I did my best to bring the vibe of the day to the photos. I hope that in looking at them you can feel the story of the day.
Thanks for having me out Kev n' Bek. All the best.
