JENNIFER + ALASTAIR | {My First Kilt}

Wednesday, July 13, 2011



One of the things I love about weddings is that each one is different. Whether its the style of the Bride's dress or the color of her shoes, the antics of the groomsmen or the location of the wedding itself. I love photographing the details at weddings, so I'm always excited to see anything new and different.


Prior to our wedding consultation, I didn't know any of the details of Jennifer and Alastair's wedding. At our meeting, we talked about the usual: time of the ceremony, location of the ceremony, location of formal portraits, etc. Then, Jennifer announced . . . "and Alastair will be wearing a kilt." I was so excited. I had never photographed a Groom in a kilt before. Plus, we would be heading to the Grand Falls Golf Course for photos. The colors, the venue, the kilt . . . I knew it was going to be fantastic!


The kilt Alastair wore belong to his late Grandfather. I thought this was extra special. I love it when couples add special meaning to their wedding.


When I arrived on Friday and saw Jennifer's wedding gown, I was blown away. It was absolutely gorgeous. The silk fabric was covered in beautiful lace detail.


Jennifer and Alastair were married at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Grand Falls-Windsor on Friday, July 8th.




Its Scottish tradition for the Groom to pin a piece of his clan's tartan colors to the Bride's wedding dress to signify that she is now a member of his clan. I thought it was pretty neat myself!




I LOVE the Bridesmaids grey dresses and red shoes.





I know the girls are waiting to see this one! lol According to what I've been told, a "true Scotsman" doesn't wear anything under his kilt. You'll have to ask Alastair or Bridesmaid Susan ; )






Jennifer and Alastair's wedding cake was also unique. It featured four tiers of cupcakes (made by the couple) and the top layer was wedding cake. The cupcakes were served to guests after dinner.



Guests questioned why Jennifer had changed out of her wedding dress. It wasn't long before the music skipped and the couple mixed up the traditional first dance and entertained guests with a swing dance.
