i spent yesterday at golden gardens park, photographing robin and grant’s beautiful wedding with/for libbie mistretta. it was my first time meeting everyone, but they were all so kind and welcoming! i want to be friends with all of them! robin totally cracked me up, and i loved how laid-back her and grant were. i could really see that they are totally comfortable spending the rest of their lives together.
robin and grant decided to have a dramatic “reveal,” (which i always love), and i took a few shots to capture it…
doesn’t grant’s awesome top hat just make the shots?!
an example of robin’s awesome personality… her shoes! best bridal shoes *ever.*
i love this shot of robin’s misty-eyed maid of honour, glancing back at robin right before walking down the aisle.
ok, favourite moment of the whole wedding: the ceremony ended, and robin and grant walked into this back room. robin says (all choked up): “hi. i’m your wife.” so sweet, it killed me. i looked at libbie, and we were both crying!
i love the trees in this park!
i found this little girl hiding all over the place… the washroom, a back room, and under this table…
here are robin’s other (formal) shoes, which she wore for about 5 minutes in total. (i can’t blame her, i doubt i’d even be able to walk in those things!) when i saw the clouds going all crazy, i couldn’t resist stealing them for a few minutes…
the reception was catered by a grand affaire catering, and they are awesome! their food was so incredibly delicious, and all their staff was so friendly and attentive. i absolutely can not wait to eat at another wedding they cater! and the word on the street is that one of robin’s friends made the incredible (cup)cake(s)! there were three flavours, but i went straight for the red velvet… yum!
robin and grant, i wish you all the best in the future! thank you for letting me share in your day.
