The summer of 2017 certainly brought a lot of well, uncertainty when weather was concerned and Matt and Michelle’s wedding was no exception.
Let me start off by saying their engagement session was by far one of my favorites, mixing my love for baseball and of course my favorite team The Blue Jays. Not to mention when I posted some photos on Instagram THE Roberto Alomar commented on my photo, a piece of me felt so accomplished and the other part jumped for joy like a little school girl when they won the 92’, 93’ World Series back to back.
I went to Matt’s house where he was getting ready with the boys to capture some details, of course NONE of them were ready and actually sitting around unclothed but they quickly went into high gear and got dressed. Once the guys were ready we took some super fun photos with Matt’s canoe outside and even the groom being held by the dudes- cheesy, but hilarious. It’s easy to tell these two are made for each other and very in love- they endured a long distance relationship for awhile, Michelle in the city and Matt very East of the city. I’m going to assume Matt did not mind it however, since it was closer to all the Jays games in the summer. In their house that they had recently moved into, they have pictures of them and even friends all around. This right here is love, proud, displayed love.
Off to the girls at the beautiful Anderson House B&B in Brooklin, Ont, the sky was starting to darken and no sooner did I get inside that the torrential rain started. As Michelle put on her dress and the finishing touches the rain let up, which allowed us to safely go into the main house for photos. The Anderson house offers, timeless furniture pieces that are perfect for unique photos- a must see. The ceremony and reception took place at The Rolling Acres in Clarington, a cozy little venue with vast property for guests to wander. The most amazing Michelle Scrimgeour- Brown from Transcendent Ceremonies officiated, if you haven’t witnessed a ceremony by her you have not seen the true meaning of hands on, heartfelt ceremonies in my opinion. She evokes so much emotion from the couple and guests alike. Right after Michelle and Matt said their I do’s, they wisked away to the bridal suite with the rain coming down mere minutes after! We waited the rain out for about 20 min and then in the clear for photos for the bridal party. The vibrant greens and sun poking out though the clouds made for some of the most beautiful photos this season. The reception was full of laughs, shared bottle of champagne during the Maid of honors speech, and a game of plinko to make the couple kiss or what ever you landed on, not to forget my favorite- a candy bar! It was a fantastic day, rain didn’t stop this wedding one bit and could not dampen this love. I wish Matt and Michelle a life time of happiness and a baseball team of children! Thank you for having me capture your amazing day.
