Couple Celebrate their Happily Ever After in Style
Fall Wedding in the park – true to Bride & Groom’s Vision
Meghan and Eric are both Engineers and live in a small mining town in Northern Ontario and when I say North, that would be North of Kenora, although home base for them is Kingston and Ottawa. They met 10 years ago at Queen’s University in Kingston so a fall wedding in Perth Stewart Park seemed like a perfect halfway point. Guests arrived from all over North America, from coast to coast and everywhere in between for their Wedding Day. The quaint town of Perth, Ontario and the historic Code’s Mill on the Park was the destination venue for their special celebration as it offered a relaxed, unique experience for their guests and their love for a small town atmosphere.
Memorable Wedding Gifts for the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen
Meghan’s Mom handmade beautiful shawls for the Bridesmaids as Fall weather can be unpredictable. The personalized men’s wedding ties for the Wedding Party were custom created and sewn by Meghan with their unique personalities in mind. A very creative family!
The air was calm and serene as Meghan walked along the path toward the ceremony site in Stewart Park and Eric stood calm and collected. As she made her way down the aisle she glanced at Eric to see his reaction. Their eyes met, Meghan’s smile made his heart melt and Eric managed to fight back his tears but I must say just barely 🙂 Love, commitment and friendship had brought them to this point in time and an array of emotions, brought to life, in a mere moment.

The rain predicted held off so we trooped to every corner of the park for photos and the soft cloud cover of the day awarded us with beautiful soft light and vibrant colour, as the wedding party and couple took in the colourful Tay River and the new arrival of the Perth Ontario Bicentennial Dry Stone Legacy Project Bridge – absolutely stunning!
The guests received maple sugar candy as the Perth area is world renowned for Maple syrup, taffy and candy. A divine and thoughtful token of thanks from Meghan and Eric to their many guests sharing in their day.
Our thanks to the Wedding Party for braving the Tay River, warm personalities and thoughtful assistance all day. And especially to Meghan and Eric, we loved your down to earth hearts and our thanks for your trust in our captures. We adore you both and welcome you to your new life adventure as husband and wife.
