Spectacular Fall Wedding Colours on Display at Stewart Park
“Everything was simply perfect” …Andrea
John and I met Andrea and Josh at my daughter’s wedding events, as Josh is a cherished friend of my new son-in law. I adored them from the minute I met them. I loved their spirit, warmth, compassion and laughter. Their joy of life is electric. Then they announced a beautiful fall wedding to be held in Perth Ontario.
Relaxing Time getting ready at the Mahogany Salon and Spa
Mahogany Salon and Spa was a stunning location for the Bride, Bridesmaids and Mom’s to start their day and the excitement and energy flowed from these awesome women. A beautiful luncheon was all ready for them once their hair and make-up was complete. Special thanks to the staff for the attentive attention to detail for the Wedding Party. It was a unique location for Andrea as she works at the Spa, and totally exciting for the staff to have a peek of “one of their own” on her Wedding Day.
John met Josh and the Groomsmen at the Nevis Estates in Perth ON. This beautiful B&B was a perfect backdrop for the guys. I had a giggle viewing the photos as I guess from a girls standpoint we always wash and dry our hair before getting dressed but not so with guys I guess..lol. There was a parade to the sink and shower 🙂 Incredibly not a drop on their tuxes…I am so impressed 🙂 What a fun bunch of guys and of course a ton of laughter between them.
Vintage 1964 Ford Falcon Wedding Car
The beautiful ceremony was held at St, James Anglican church in Perth and I was excited to see the 1964 Ford Falcon Ragtop was sitting out front. If Andrea and Josh were nervous it certainly didn’t show as both were all smiles and absorbed in the ceremony celebration of husband and wife. Andrea’s Grandmother looked wonderful and we took some very important photos of her, with them, after the registry signing.
The Wedding party rode to Stewart Park for photos in the Limo and Andrea and Josh drove the pristine 1964. Awesome wedding party and some fun times with them at the park. The 16C weather for Oct 29th was incredible and certainly assisted in keeping them warm for our location photos with Andrea and Josh. They are wonderful together!
Fun loving Couple!
Let the party begin and the night was filled with so much laughter. The Code’s Mill on the Park served a delicious meal and is such a perfect location for a Fall Wedding. Wonderful heartfelt speeches with hilarious moments brought to light 🙂 Alex from Dynamix Productions was incredible and kept the dance floor going all evening.
Thank you Andrea and Josh for your trust, friendship and asking us to capture your Wedding memories. We were so truly honoured to be a part of your fabulous day!
Our love to you both. Xxoo
