Michelle & Brett
I started my day with a Starbucks coffee while driving to the girls location. They were getting ready at Michelles childhood home. The fall colours were stunning, so of course we took advantage of them! As usual, I always start with details and incorporated the leafs I found on the outside deck!
Michelle had a first look not once, but 3 times and it was AWESOME! First she had one with her father, then her bridesmaids & then her honey down at St.Patricks Island park. They popped champagne to celebrate and afterwards headed to The Rouge Restaurant for their wedding ceremony. Brett has know their officiant Karen since he was a young boy. The ceremony was beautiful. They each wrote personal vows to each other & they were so heartfelt, full of love & memories - I LOVED that aspect of the ceremony - BE LIKE THESE TWO AND DON'T RUSH IT! Take the time to express your love for the person you have chosen to spend your life with!
After the ceremony before dinner, it was time for cocktail hour! The Rouge really knows how to provide excellent service so if you are considering having your wedding their, DO IT!
Dinner was being served and speeches were sprinkled throughout this time (WEDDING HACK: THIS IS THE BEST FOR SAVING TIME!) One of the punny highlights of the evening was when guests had to write puns using the couple! After puns were submitted, Michelle & Brett read through them & chose a winner!
The couple shared their first dance to kick off the party! What a blast!
Now it's time to see this wedding with your own eyes!!!
Michelle & Brett - THANK YOU for inviting me to share in this celebration with you!! It's been a wonderful 2.5 years working with you both - YOU GUYS ARE SUCH AN AWESOME COUPLE!
