Magen and Ben: morning elegance

Magen and Ben are real. They are who they are and it’s great. Their wedding day definitely reflected a lot of their personality, their artistic sides and most of all their love for each other. The couple decided on a morning wedding! Different but a format that I really like! (even though I’m not much of a morning person)

I started rather early in the AM with Magen and her girls at the Pillar and Post. I met with them at the Simcoe room with its open faced brick walls and classic shutters; an elegant room to be sure. There were a lot of smiles and chatter going on as Rachel and Alana were there already with hair and makeup underway!

The morning included some violin practicing, a few peeks up at the clouds (no rain for this wedding) and of course a lot of nervous excitement. We had a chance to take quite a few detail shots during the morning preparations. Magen’s flowers were beautiful and had many hints of other family members wedding dresses, most importantly Magen’s deceased mother. Definitely some special moments and memories and a very nice way to incorporate her into the wedding day.

The ceremony was held directly on the grounds at the Pillar and Post in the always beautiful rose garden. Magen and her girls walked down the grass aisle to meet Ben and his Groomsmen. Ben and his group of guys looked very sharp in their grey linen suits and vests.

The ceremony was perfectly fit to them. The traditional foot washing ceremony was a unique touch to such an elegant wedding. The two were then greeted directly after with a receiving line and immediately into a brunch reception! The Upper Canada Hall at the Pillar was perfectly decked out to fit a morning wedding.  It was elegant but warm and inviting.

One of my favorite parts of the day was their wedding “cake”. It wasn’t so much a cake as it was ice cream. Marble Slab Ice Cream set up a serving station for the couple and their guests! The two served each other ice cream and then mingled with their guests.

We waited until all of this was wrapped up to start family photos and then into their formal portrait session. For the group photos we headed to Queenston Heights. We managed to keep our cool and have a great time through the heat and humidity. Magen, Ben and company were a lot of fun to just spend time with let alone celebrate a wedding.

Our portrait session ended with a little bit of payback by the girls. The boys had pranked them earlier in the week and the girls came to the photo session packing heat. They let me in on the gag and I played a little part getting them set up in a pose and when the time was right they moved in for the silly string kill. Mayhem ensued. The boys cowered in fear :)

A fun way to end a great day! Congrats once again the Magen and Ben! I hope you enjoy these selections from their wedding day.
