Wesley & Melissa’s Wedding // Hockley Valley Resort.
A long distance kinda love. Her in Ontario, him in Vegas. And they made it work, because their kind of love can withstand anything – and I mean anything. Theses guys bring the “power” to “power couples”.
I was so happy to close my 2017 wedding season with these two who hosted their wedding at Hockley Valley Resort. I’m always happy to be back at Hockley, but for this wedding we switched things up a little. I suggested to them that we take their portraits off site – as it was mid November and the grounds were pretty damp. To our surprise, when we pulled into Orangville’s downtown district; the roads were closed. About one second of panic turned into a freaking celebration as they had closed off the road’s early to prepare for a Tractor Parade (it doesn’t get more Orangeville then that folks, haha). The streets were nearly completely clear and ready for us to shoot (we all did a happy dance).
Melissa wanted lush greens, and pops of color – Wesley wanted Star Wars. They incorporated it in the most tasteful way I’ve ever seen and it put such a personal stamp on their wedding day (Karen from Cedar & Stone seriously knocked Wesley’s boutonniere out of the park)!
