It’s one of those sayings you learned a long time ago – ‘you should never judge a book by its cover.’ But when a cover presents a couple like Kristy + Brian, one can’t help but envision smiling faces; hands held tightly as a gleaming sun sets in the distance; a warm breeze of dandelion seeds blowing against the changing colors of the sky.
Simple. Radiant. Love.
Kristy + Brian met in high-school, but from the many looks we witnessed between the two of them on their wedding day, it would appear as though they’d just met. That goofy grin of awe and wonder on Brian’s face and those puppy dog eyes of Kristy’s – each time the other came into sight. They were top to bottom, head-over-heels, pure and simple – in love.
They Were, and Are. Will always be.
Kristy + Brian.
And we were just the lucky ones who picked them up and couldn’t put them down.
They were married at the Westminster Presbyterian church in Smith Falls, with friends and family traveling from all over Ontario to witness the joining of this beautiful couple. Kristy wore a gorgeous diamond white Maggie Sottero gown of Bordeaux Taffeta with a beaded lace princess cut neckline, and paired it with an adorable pair of crisp white ballet slippers. Brian was strikingly handsome in his black and whites and it was very evident – they were the apple of each other’s eyes.
We had an absolute ball photographing these two in and around The Strathmere, which is a beautiful 200 acre country retreat located just south of Ottawa. Kristy + Brian chose The Lodge for their reception location which is just one of 3 venues on the estate. But before the party really got going – the couple let us get a little creative in the lush cornfields on the property which resulted in a ton of amazing images.
Kristy + Brian, Thank you.
Thank you for picking us off the shelf. For opening us up. And for seeing the beauty and the potential. Suffice it to say, we were not at all surprised with your fairy tale ending.
