Alicia and Morgan’s wedding this September was one for the books.
It started with a beautiful, sunny, September day. Both brides were getting ready at the Walper Hotel, Kitchener, ON, a beautiful place I’d wanted to stay at before. The first thing I see when I enter the room: Morgan, happily grinning, and her three bridespeople dressed in CHEETAH robes. Yes, cheetah. It was fantastic.
They pulled it off effortlessly, but it must be said that it looked particularly striking on Morgan’s brother, what with his blond curls and green eyes.
The makeup & hair artists were already at work, prepping everyone. This is cool, because one of my favorite things to do is to get closeup shots of people being made over.
There are SO MANY GOOD MOMENTS when brides and grooms are getting ready for their weddings…
Anyway, soon it was time to go visit Alicia on the next floor, where her own group of helpful folks was helping her with her cufflinks, hair, suit, and she was similarly helping her brother with his gear.
So now, everyone’s ready, but they haven’t seen each other yet. They wanted to wait until the ceremony, which I think is super sweet.
I walked with Alicia to the venue as the jitters came over their party. Alicia looked boss. Check out that crosswalk photo – she looks like a model for something very cool.
Once at the Tannery, it was nearly time!!
The ceremony room was PACKED!
Alicia and Morgan had this kind of gaze for each other that made the room vibrate. The ceremony went quickly and before long, they were walking out, hand-in-hand, high-fiving excited guests.
Next: Cocktail hour. One of my favorite hours… food, happy guests… some people getting progressively happier with the aid of alcoholic beverages. A generally GOOD TIME.
Then dinner was served and during the speeches there were lots of happy tears. I have become a sap in my older age, and can be found quietly emoting over in my corner of the room while snapping away during this portion of the evening. The dessert was also enough to make you cry it was so good.
