After having spent some time apart, high-school friends, Danika and Matt, were reunited and realized their future was with one another. On August 27, Danika, Matt and 5year-old Ryden united their little family in an early evening waterfront ceremony at Weddings on the Rideau. Danika was sweet and romantic in her custom-made Maureen Patricia gown by The Handmade Bride. Danika's 15 bridesmaids - each in a unique gown of their choice - spent the morning with her in the venue's bridal cabin, helping Danika get ready, all the while sharing memories and laughter of their years growing up. Matt shared as many laughs with his groomsmen in the Kemptville Suites, squashing any nerves that really didn't even seem to exist. There is no mistaking there is a loyal band of long-held, dear friends behind this couple. Danika and Matt chose to see each other for a private first look -- witness the emotion and happiness on both their faces and how it DIDN'T take away from Matt's reaction seeing his bride later walk down the aisle! They then spent some quality time together for their portraits before uniting with family and friends for their Weddings on the Rideau waterfront ceremony. An informal late-evening reception followed with drinks and appetizers where Danika and Matt could casually mingle with their guests and celebrants. It was a laid-back, calm day for all. Thank-you, Danika and Matt, for placing your trust in me to capture the beauty and intimacy of your day! xox
It's that time of year: the weather starts to get cooler, the kids - big and little - are going off to school or work and thoughts begin to turn inward to getting the family back together again. The Boivins said enough is enough and put time aside in their busy schedules to "get the kids together" for photos outside of weddings or special events. The "kids" showed up at the family homestead, shared a few laughs, humoured me with my antics and mom and dad - both senior and junior ;) - now have a few keepsakes of their growing family. Thank-you, Boivin Family, for allowing me to capture your family circa 2016. xox
