Snow Day

Eleven.

The in-between age.  The oh so short period of time between the imagination of childhood and the adventures of what is known as “teenagers”.

Your room is still full of dolls and toys but I’ve been noticing you don’t play with them as much you used to.  I had to look for a picture book last month for a little visitor we had at our house; there weren’t any in your  room, chapter books now fill your shelves.

Yesterday you sang to with the radio as we drove home from school.  It was a new song that I had never heard before but you knew all the words. Your math homework this week was full of algebra and you have to write a thesis for your upcoming project.

You are growing up.

I didn’t have time to take photos of you on your birthday and the months have flown since then.

Today we had yet another snow day and I have a new light in my studio that was begging for me to try it out.

And with only a bribe (and a 15 minute time limit during which you would humour me) to make some popsicles- you agreed.

Samantha & Bryan’s Magical New Year’s Eve Wedding

Sam and Bryan were married in a beautiful ceremony on New Year’s Eve in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Surrounded by adoring family and friends this beautiful couple celebrated their love for each other in a glittery evening that sparkled the whole night through.

To take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of Halifax’s Historic Properties, this fearless wedding party braved the elements and stood outdoors in freezing temperatures for photographs in one of the most magical settings I’ve ever seen.

This gorgeous couple is one of the nicest that I’ve ever met and their kindness and love shone through the entire day.

This is the story of Sam & Bryan’s magical wedding day.

Kortney & Blair – The Story of their Wedding Day

Kortney and Blair were married on the last weekend of summer.  The sun shone brightly and the air, although warm, carried with it the slightest hint of the changing season.

From morning to evening this day was filled.  Filled to the brim with ever so much beauty, fun, love and laughter; but it was so much more than that.  I am at a loss for words (which seldom happens) to describe this day.  Everything I write seems to fall flat and does not give this day the justice it deserves.

Beauty was all around…  The lodge at Upper Oxbow Outdoor Adventures, where Kortney got ready is set on the bank of the beautiful Little Southwest Miramichi River and is one the prettiest places I have ever seen (I may be a bit biased – I grew up there.).  From the lovely ladies (This bride was stunning!) to the pretty dresses and stunning flowers,, everything was gorgeous.  But it was more than that.

Love was everywhere.  This couple is in love.  There was no hiding it; they are incredibly and deliriously happy-in-love.  They each have wonderful sense of humour and were one of the most easy going couples I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.  Their friends are families adore them.  From the smiles, laughter and tears and hours and hours of work that was put into this day come about, (by family and friends); love was evident and over flowing.  (Fun Fact – Kortney’s dad (and his helpers) spent countless hours transforming the local rink into a venue for not just the wedding ceremony, but for the reception and dance as well.)

Laughter.  It was contagious.  When a bride and groom were having as much fun as these two were, it was impossible not follow suite.  Laughter greeted me when I arrived that morning and laughter followed me as I packed my bag at the end of the day.

From morning to night, this day was filled; and this is the story of their wedding day.
