Christa + Greg | Central Newfoundland {Wedding} Photography

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I've had many great adventures at weddings. This past Saturday was no exception.

When Christa contacted me last year, she sent pictures of this amazing location she had found for post-ceremony photos. I was literally in awe and in love with this location. I have been looking forward to the Snow/Simms wedding all summer. Unfortunately, the weather was putting a damper on our plans...or so we thought. To check the forecast leading up to the wedding and to hear the disappointment in Christa's voice that we may be rained out, was heartbreaking. I've always been pretty lucky {knock on wood} with the weather on wedding days. I think deep down, I knew it would hold off for at least a few shots outside. Plus, I had many people praying to the rain gods and crossing their fingers and toes. Thank you!

Christa and Greg were married at St. Andrews Anglican Church in Bishop's Falls. During the ceremony, I glanced out the windows, hoping the rain had stopped. It continued to come down. I was loosing faith. As Christa and Greg lined up after the ceremony to greet their guests, I glanced out one more time. No rain!

The newlyweds and I geared up and headed for our secret location. The drive to the secluded area was apparently rough and could only be accessed by truck. My Honda Accord wasn't going to cut it. We hopped in with Greg's brother and groomsmen, Chris and his fiance and maid of honor, Julie. I had no idea where we were headed. The usual "we're married" excitement was mixed with the overall excitement of the group {me included} for heading outdoors for photos. After a fairly long ride through the woods and down a {very} bumpy dirt road, we made it. I swear my jaw dropped when we arrived. I couldn't believe it. What a spot. We spent a full hour outdoors without a drop of rain.

I had such a great time with everyone. As usual, I was made to feel like part of the group. Thank you to Chris and Julie for chauffeuring me around and to Christa and Greg for the adventure. I hope you enjoy the sneak peak. These are my faves.
