Another beautiful, sunny and oh so warm summer’s day it was for Lindsay & Shawn’s wedding. I met Lindsay at her parent’s home in Waterford early in the day. The house was full of energy and Lindsay was just getting those finishing touched of make-up taken care of. She already looked absolutely stunning and I couldn’t wait to see her in her dress!
Only an hour later, Lindsay would be seeing Shawn for the first time on their wedding day. Having the chase to spend a few minutes with each of them individually before they had seen each other was so awesome. I loved grabbing some individual shots of each of them and then just witnessing how they both demonstrated so much calm. I’m always impressed with how some couples are so in control and don’t let the nerves take over. Shawn and Lindsay were the perfect example of this.
Lindsay and Shawn chose to do have their “First Look” before the ceremony which is always a great option in my eyes. They have the opportunity to see each other early in the day in more of an intimate setting where it is just the two of them, rather than having those first few moments of seeing each other take place in front of a huge crowd of people. Everyone had fresh hair and make-up for photos and their is less waiting for the guests between the ceremony and the reception.
The day consisted of a beautiful, outdoor, lakeside ceremony at Maple Court Cottages in Port Dover. The view of the lake was breathtaking and the blue skies went on and on without a cloud in sight. After the ceremony was completed we made our way out to the Greens at Renton just outside of Simcoe for a few more quick photos of the lovely couple and the reception that started off with a little boxing match! These guys definitely were up for having some fun and I’m sure the night did not disappoint.
Congratulations Lindsay & Shawn! I feel so very blessed to have shared int his beautiful day and to have met your families and friends. The two of you are definitely surrounded by much love and no doubt have a beautiful and bright future ahead.
