This past October saw another fun filled wedding with Lacey and Andy. They were such a fun, happy couple to photograph. Every time I turned around to take a photo of them or even someone else, they were always laughing and smiling. You could just feel the joy the whole day. It really came through in almost every photo I took that day.
I met up with both of them in the early afternoon at the Victoria Inn. We weren’t there long but I did manage to get some photos of them getting ready and before we all headed off to Vickers Park. Once we got to Vickers Park, Lacey and Any did a bit of housekeeping, to make sure everything was in order and then we spent some time getting the wedding party portraits done. Vickers is such a beautiful location and the weather was so nice for an October afternoon.
After Vickers, Lacey and Andy wanted to get a few quick portraits at Kam Park, which is always a great location that I don’t think a lot of people, especially weddings, even consider. By that point I already had a ton of photos and we hadn’t even gotten to the ceremony portion of the day yet. By the time we got back to Vickers Park, guests were beginning to arrive so I went into full candid mode, just capturing moments between guests and the wedding party itself.
Shortly after, the ceremony began and of course there were tears but also a lot of laughter, because that’s what Andy and Lacey are all about. It was a very intimate ceremony with all the guests gathered around the happy couple in the middle of the park. It was a photographers dream, because I could just roam around wherever I liked not having to worry about really getting the way.
Once the ceremony was done Lacey and Andy were congratulated and we got a few more important family member photos. The Columbus Centre was the next stop and where the reception took place. This was the first time I had photographed here and it was really a nice venue. Plus, the food was amazing! Lacey and Andy had a neat little photo printing station set up for guests and a few other details spread out that really made the ceremony unique. Instead of a receiving line, they just decided to mingle around the room with guests which was perfect, because it allowed me to get some great photos of everyone before the dinner and everything else actually started.
The speeches were done while dinner was served which really kept everything moving. Honestly, every speech was quite entertaining too. Once of the funniest things I saw that night was everyone gathered around the TV in the lobby watching the Blue Jays game. They did end up wining too, so what more could you ask for. My night ended after the garter toss, which, by looking at the very last photo I posted on here, got quite the reaction.
I couldn’t have asked for a more easy going and fun wedding couple to photograph. They made my day so easy and I had such a great time following Lacey and Andy around for the day.
