Kara and Kevin: a mid-winter’s dream
Kara had a vision of a beautiful winter wedding. A nice dusting of snow, a beautiful venue, and a great party. She got everything she dreamed of and maybe a litttttttllleeee bit more than a dusting of snow.
It’s rare that I get to shoot in my hometown of Ridgeway, so I was relieved to know that my first location was literally right around the corner from my house. I was relieved because there happened to be a good 6 inches of freshly fallen snow from the night before and more coming down!
My second shooter for the day was none other than the very talented Jesse (from Jesse James photography) . He met up with Kevin and the boys and followed them during the morning.
Kara and Kevin’s mornings culminated in the exchange of vows at St. George’s Catholic Church before we whisked away to take a few photos at Mather’s Arch in Fort Erie. We may have underestimated the wind and the cold but we did get a few photos there before heading up the highway to the Old Stone Mill to finish up the rest of the photos and the reception.
Having known Kevin and Kara for quite a while, the evening was especially sentimental. I even had the chance to have Kate (my girlfriend) by my side at dinner!
Hilarious speeches, a great job singing a “Piano Man” paraody by the best man and the groomsmen and some awesome dance moves made for a fantastic night!
I’m so happy for this couple. I can’t wait to see where life takes them! Cheers to Kara and Kevin!
