A wedding at Waterloo Village? Yes! Possibly my favorite rustic location ever! From the moment we walked into that quaint little bridal suite and saw Kate's face beaming with joy, we new this was going to be a great day! We started with a 1st look and a few private moments before getting the bridal party together in the shade for some fun shots! Then it was off to the ceremony! Kate and Eric's Officiate was a long time friend of Kate's family and watched their relationship grow over the years. I spent most of my time behind the Officiate during the ceremony, which is a little different angle of what's going on, but it gave me the opportunity to capture a sweet shot of Kate's parents proudly looking at each other! Kate's niece was a little skeptical of us at first, but really warmed up to my assistant, Barb!
The cocktail hour was full of games for adults and fun beverages laid out on shelves and ready for taking! While Barb focused on the Cocktail hour festivities, I headed over to the reception, which was beautifully decorated by Rosehip Social Florist. AND, instead of a traditional cake, they had pies!
When it came time for the parent dances, Kate and her Dad gave everyone an awesome interactive performance to Neil Diamond's "America" as their Father/Daughter dance. The night cooled everyone off and the fire pits and lightning bugs inspired us for their end of the night shot! Thanks photographers: Barbara Wentzel and Kelly Joyce! Thanks, Kate and Eric for having us!
