Perhaps you experienced the incredible weather we had up here over the Thanksgiving weekend. Perhaps you didn’t? The skies over Lake Bernard in Sundridge were so dramatic. The most interesting I’ve ever seen. Alexa and Adrian still decided to wed on the pier at The Northridge Inn and Resort. As their photographer I could not have been happier about this decision. The winds blew through Alexa’s veil, the sun shone through perfectly on Adrian as he watched his bride walk down the aisle. It was awesome. What wasn’t so awesome…the hail, the snow, and the rain which began almost immediately following their ceremony. It was frigid! We barely made it through their family portraits, never mind a beautiful bridal session. Alas, as you may have seen, we were able to capture some pretty spectacular images (thanks to adventurous clients, beautiful skies, and willing family). And after all of that-we still wanted more. Monday of the long weekend we got all dressed up and did it again. This time the sun was hot (ish), the skies were blue, and the forest was vibrant. This is what we came up with! Enjoy.
Working on a Monday night doesn’t get much sweeter than this. Alexa and Adrian came into my life quickly and it was a delightful surprise. I’ll be shooting their Muskoka Destination Wedding Thanksgiving weekend at the Northridge Inn (here in my sunny little town of Sundridge). I learned so much about Alexa, Adrian and their families in the short time we spent together last week. Turns out we have just a few things in common…made me giggle. As Alexa and I chatted about wedding details, contracts, and an engagement session I asked her “so, what do you guys do in the evenings at the cottage?”…after she listed a few lovely family activities she mentioned she’d be going for a swim later that night. I knew right away what I wanted to do with her and Adrian! As you’ll can see they were willing participants and totally embraced the experience. Thanks for finding me, you two! And double thanks for indulging in a little after dinner swimming! See you next at your romantic Northridge Inn wedding…in just a couple of months!!! I’m excited!
