Shelly & Paul celebrated their wedding at Whitewater Golf Course in Thunder Bay. This was my first time photographing at this venue, so as always, I was very excited for the wedding date to arrive. The day was bright, sunny and hot. Luckily there was some shade on the outside deck where the ceremony took place. As all the guests slowly arrived there was a cellist playing music in the background.
A waited patiently along with Paul and the rest of the guests for Shelly to make her way down the aisle. Once she was ready the music started and the guest stood up. The ceremony was short and beautiful. The view of the entire golf course background only added to the overall atmosphere. It was then time for the receiving line which all the guests took part in. There were many hugs and even some tears as guest congratulated Paul on Shelly.
The wedding party then made their way to the golf carts and we were off for a ride through the golf course. We ended up at a hole that overlooked the river. After some group shots it was time to head back to the reception. One of the highlights of the reception included guests having to hool-a-hoop in order for the bride and groom to kiss. Quite a few got up and took part which made for some great moments. Once dinner was done, there were a few speeches and then it was time for the first dance. Dancing for the rest of guest followed along with a cake cutting later in the evening.
Whitewater golf course was a great location for a wedding and the whole day was a joy to photograph. Good luck to both Paul and Shelly, and thanks again for sharing your day with me!
