Jenn & Ryan’s Wedding

Niagara Falls…The once “Honeymoon Capital of the World” is quickly becoming the Wedding Capital as well. With thunderstorms in the forecast Dave and I met the wedding party outside of the cutest little church and chatted about the big day ahead. Ryan and his Groomsmen waited patiently for the guests to arrive and joked around with Dave and I during our pre-ceremony shoot. We could tell the guys had a fine-tuned sense of humour that only develops with years of practicing…on each other ๐Ÿ™‚

After the guests were seated, Dave made his way into the church. He waited for the church doors to open to capture the first moments when Ryan would see his bride. On the other side of the door I was waiting with Jen and her Father. Jen was definitely one of the most beautiful brides I had ever seen. She looked so breathtaking in her gown. I took a few shots of the two of them before the doors opened and you could feel the emotion as they walked down the aisle.

After a beautiful ceremony, we headed outside. Surprisingly enough everyone was enjoying the warm sunshine opposed to the forecasted torrential downpour. Bubbles floated by in the breeze blessing Jen and Ryan’s new marriage. While Dave was arranging the group photos outside, I caught this sweet little church mouse playing inside. Katie was so cute, I loved the way the sun spilled through the stained glass, it made her look like a little angel.

We made our way to the Niagara Parks Greenhouse , a great location to shoot in Niagara Falls. Dave set up the formals and I held the reflector to add some needed bounce to the shots. Just that little bit of soft light really helps to make the photos pop. The Greenhouse has such a variety of colours from all of the exotic flowers and hanging baskets, it really makes for a gorgeous backdrop.

Surrounded by breathtaking gardens, overlooking Niagara Falls Ryan, Jen, Dave and I pulled in to The Crowne Plaza Hotel. I have to tell you the views were absolutely spectacular! The food was fab, the details were gorgeous, but the speeches were side-splitting!!! I looked across the room at Dave and he was giggling as much as the guests. I guess that’s because Jen and Ryan’s Engagement Session made it into the mix ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t think you could have hired a professional comedian to do a better job. Good work guys!!

After a lovely Tea Ceremony and traditional Toasting of the Bride and Groom, we wrapped up the day with a quick shoot in the lobby of hotel, these are some of our faves from the day… Congratulations Jen and Ryan we truly had a blast shooting your wedding!
