This beautiful beach themed wedding was a great season starter for us and we had a lot of fun capturing the day. The women of the bridal party began bright and early at To Dye For Hair Studio for the fun but arduous process of perfect bridal hair, which looked easy when done by the talented Michelle Locke and her apprentice Brittney. The men worked hard at the ceremony site making the final preparations before they retired to the house to prepare for the big day. Jamie and Ryan held their ceremony on their own acreage which was a perfect spot to gather the families and guests.
They had invited us to their house the night before the wedding, to go through the rehearsal of the ceremony so we knew exactly what was going to take place and where. We had also photographed their engagement session about 6 weeks before the wedding, and if you haven’t seen that blog post, click here.
Understanding their plans with a visual representation helped us take my favourite image of the wedding – the beach ball confetti! The entire wedding day (including the reception) had a fun tropical beach theme made possible by Final Touch Event Planning. It included bright colours, beach balls, leis, a sand aisle, and yes, tiki torches. The reception even included an adorable photo booth with a beach sunset poster as the background. Guests were encouraged to stick their polaroid onto a large board used as a photo guest book. An amazing buffet dinner was cooked by friends and family, and delicious cupcakes were given out for the wedding cake. We were even able to indulge my guilty pleasure at the candy bar at the back. Thanks for the memories, the beautiful pictures, and the belly ache that comes from too much delicious candy.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Williams!
