I met Kim in college. Way back when (we’re old – well not that old). But it’s been a while since I’d heard from her or run into her. Imagine my surprise when I check my personal email and have a note from Kim that says after test driving mike for 15 years, they’ve finally decided to get married. While looking for a photographer in the Barrie area she recognized me. Funny how things work out! I was so excited and honoured to shoot their vintage southshore wedding!
And then Kim told me she had Vicki from Posh Beyond doing her décor and I was thrilled. YAY for fun vendors!!
Mike & Kim really wanted a relaxed affair with candlelit ceremony and cocktail reception. Not your traditional seating, not even a traditional ceremony (they gave kids candy!! BRILLIANT idea to keep them still). They kept their bridal party very small and personal. The maid-of-honour was her sister, and the best man? Well it’s Kim’s grandpa. And when they told me that, I fell in love with Mike.
And just when I thought these two can’t possibly get any cuter….MIKE SANG …..at the ceremony, like when people were walking down the aisle, even when Kim walked toward him, you know to become his wife. He sang to her. I cried my face off. And totally felt jealous and gave nick a look like ‘why the hell don’t you sing to me?!?” (And as a side note, Mike is a fab singer. Usually when I hear people tell me they sing in a band, I inwardly cringe, thinking sure you do. I’m picky about music, but I’d totally buy this guy’s CD. Seriously – sign him up for the voice or something.)
This is one of the most sweetest, intimate weddings I’ve ever been too, and so much fun. We had so much fun, thanks for having us there!
