Mike & Vanessa’s Wedding // Newmarket Wedding Photographer
These people. This day. I don’t have the right words.
I met Vanessa back in 2015 when I was photographing her friend Janet’s wedding. Janet did some coordination for Vanessa’s day, and Sarah her maid of honor will be one of my brides next season. So as of 2020, I will have photographed all three of these amazing girls weddings (like how fun is that)?! Mike and Vanessa are completely smitten by one another, and their relationship is one that is just total goals in my eyes. They’re so supportive of one another, and are the kind of couple who can just glance over to one another across the room and know what the other is thinking.
They’re wedding was warm and welcoming, keeping some regular traditions but then playing it low key with a cocktail style reception. I was so excited when they told me that they had rented out The Hungry Brew Hops in Newmarket, as I always love having the opportunity to shoot within an urban location (& because the food is so delicious)! I started off my day photographing Vanessa’s morning briefly, before her and Sarah walked over to the location in which we had set up for their first look and reveal. It was so sweet to have all their close family watching their reveal in the distance, and to see the emotions on their faces as they came over to greet the couple before we did photos. They all headed back on a rented school bus to get ready for the ceremony while I kept Mike and Vanessa for their portraits at Fairy Lake.
