The last wedding of the summer was my second one in a row at Crystal Beach, a small waterfront cottage community just outside of Thunder Bay. Friends of the family let Erica and Stephen use their house and and enormous backyard for the ceremony. After a short but sweet ceremony guests and family mingled and enjoyed the great weather and appetizers.
Once Erica and Stephen visited with everyone for a bit we started taking some group and family photos in the backyard. We then made our way down to the park for some wedding party portraits. After that it was off to the beach for some amazing photos against the backdrop of the lake. On the way we back we quickly stopped at the bridge from some creative and fun portraits.
The ceremony itself was at the Italian Hall. As always there were a lot of great speeches and the food was amazing. The cake was one of my favourite decorations, as it was custom created by a local woman. Erica, Stephen and both of their families were extremely friendly and I was so happy I was able to photography their special day.
