RIKKI + BERN | {forever thine. forever mine. forever ours}

Thursday, August 18, 2011

For Rikki and Bern's wedding on August 5th, I travelled to New Wes Valley. With Rikki's directions in hand, I found my way to Valleyfield to meet up with the girls and photograph them getting ready for the ceremony. I love the excitement and anticipation buzzing around the Bride as she prepares to meet her husband-to-be at the church. When I'm sure their were a few butterflies, Rikki showed no signs of being nervous. She was calm and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the company of her family and friends.

I left Valleyfield and drove the short distance to Brookfield to meet the boys at the church. I was a little surprised to find a nervous groom! I think a couple of the groomsmen were anxious to get the ceremony over too. Their witty jokes and nervous laughter gave it away :)

After the ceremony, we headed off to our first location for photos. We started in Brookfield at Rikki's parents house and then made a pit-stop along the coastline before heading to Hotel Gander for the reception. I love the drive along the Road to the Shore (Gander Loop). Driving along the coast, watching the waves crash, makes a nice change from a scenic drive of nothing but trees.

Rikki and Bern are a wonderful couple. They made me feel so welcome. From the moment I arrived in Valleyfield, to the moment I checked out of the hotel Saturday morning, they greeted me with a smile. Congratulations to you both! It was an honoured to photograph your special day.

You can tell, by the way Bern looks at Ricki, how deeply he cares for her.

Hmmm...I've thinking about hiring an assistant :-)
