Intimate Fall Wedding by the Lake in Westport Ontario | Crystal + Brad

Fall Wedding Celebration is Fresh and Fun for all

Blessed with Perfect Weather and Beautiful Scenery

We have known Brad for years ….and years actually 🙂 John and I were thrilled to hear that after 8.5 years together Crystal and Brad were finally taking the leap, but even more touching was to be asked to capture their Fall Wedding Day. They are down to earth, totally family oriented and love to chat which works great for me as you know 🙂 This Wedding Day is also very special to their children Kori, Trai and Will who were an integral part in the Wedding Party and their life together.

It poured rain all morning but since I watch the weather hour by hour, I was sure that their outdoor Wedding at the Lion’s Club Beach was a go. I arrived at their home and Crystal asked if it had stopped raining. Yes I replied and she remarked she had not even looked at the forecast what so ever. Crystal is a go with the flow personality so she was calm, cool and totally collected for the day. Casi was there doing the girl’s hair (looked amazing) and also applied Crystal’s makeup for her. Fall Wedding Days are full of emotion and Mom had a moment while she adjusted Crystal’s necklace but she would not be the only one that day. Weddings have a flood of memories and energy attached to certain moments and usually at every Wedding these happy moments come to the forefront.

Touching Wedding Moments

As I arrived at the Ceremony site Will and Trai were busy escorting the guests to their seats…so adorable! Brad was beaming as Crystal descended the aisle with her Mom. Robin Jones our Westport Mayor performed a beautiful ceremony for them. Crystal and Brad both had some touching moments as they read their vows to each other. An emotional moment as they commit to each other their love, and devotion for the adventure and journey they were about to embark on as husband and wife. Julia Friesen played the violin for the ceremony beautifully!

The location session was at a well-known hunting camp near Westport. Marty and Janet created a delicious Turkey dinner for this Thanksgiving weekend dinner and totally enjoyed by all.

Dancing Under the Stars

Dancing on the deck under the stars and lights and a quick trip to the lake for some night shots. Crystal you were beautiful and I caught Brad many times quietly looking at you with a gentle smile.

John and I wish you a lifetime of love and laughter with your family.

Our love to you both and thank you for asking as to capture a special moment in time for all of you.xxoo
