This day was sweet from the very beginning. As soon as we pulled up to Erica’s house the door swung open, and we were greeted with cute waves from Erica and her MOH Melanie. It continued to be an endearing day as we got to capture the bridesmaids practicing their walk down the aisle, Erica dressing her sweet newborn nephew, the rosary on the deck keeping away the rain, and the sweet pouts of the cutest little (under the weather) ring bearer. Joy filled the house, and I couldn’t believe this beautiful day that I had been looking forward to had finally arrived (I love Erica and her whole family, I have basically adopted them: )
The church was full of smiling people and despite the forecast of rain, sun spilled through the stained glass windows. Holding her father’s arm, she made her way to a beaming Mike as the harpist played their song; It all felt very ethereal. The ceremony was happy and heartfelt, and I melted when Mike would reach up and wipe Erica’s tears away.
Every aspect of the day – the getting ready, the promise, the picture time, the reception – everything was just lovely! Erica, you managed to make your elegant day look effortless, each detail coming together exactly how you described and dreamed it. You and Mike and are fun and so adorable together, thanks for letting us photograph your love and your beautiful wedding day!!

p.s. We were also super excited to collaborate with Design Studio and Company to create a stylized after shoot a few weeks after the wedding. They made a beautiful bouquet, and boutonniere, and a lovely table display inspired by Erica’s decor. I love that Tosha and her team were up for anything-even bringing beautiful chandeliers to hang from the trees. Erica had really wanted to get beautiful photos with some specially ordered large balloons on her wedding day and had a hard time finding a place that could fill them-so I called around after the wedding and found out that Lloyd’s of Moncton could do it! I asked Erica if she wanted to dress up again, and she was up for the fun and who am I kidding I wanted an extra chance to hang out with her and Mike before they made the big move to Edmonton (Mike plays for the Edmonton Eskimos and the season is starting up again). Erica, Mike, Tosha and team – thanks for being up for anything to make even more beautiful photos-it was so much fun!!
