I have known Kara for a while now, and from the time that I met her, she always told me that I would be her wedding photographer. In August, that happened!
I started out Kara and Richard’s wedding day at their home in St. John’s, where Richard had gathered with his favourite fellas. The guys looked amazing their custom made navy suits from Moores. Since most of them are pilots, they looked perfectly comfortable being sharply dressed! Richard popped the question at Disney – so their day had a Disney theme that was very well done. It was there in simple, elegant ways, but not over the top or in your face. It was beautiful!
With the boys ready at the house, Meghan and I headed down to the Monastery Spa where Kara and her girls were getting ready!
Sawyer from Color me Bronze and Allison from Mobile Hair by Allison did an amazing job get Kara and the bridesmaids all ready for us to head across the street to St. Patricks Church for the ceremony.
There was a lot of going on in the suite, as all of the bridesmaids got ready and Kara’s hair got it’s finishing touches, so Meghan and I took some of the beautiful details (including her stunning Maggie Sottero dress!) outside to play on the beautiful Monastery Spa grounds! All ready to get to the church on time!
I love the look of jubilation on Kara’s face as she made her way up the aisle toward Richard. Because her Dad passed away when she was sixteen and there is no one who could ever take his place, Kara made the decision to walk herself up aisle to meet Richard, who was ecstatic to see her! Classic Carriage from Clarke’s Beach provided all of of the transportation for the day. While Richard and Kara rode around in style in this gorgeous Rolls Royce, the bridal party were driven separately in their own set of much bigger wheels! It gave these two love birds some timel to be alone with each other on their big day! Well, as alone as you can been with a driver up front and your wedding photographer tailing you all day!
When we talked about what kind of wedding pictures Kara likes most, she said, “You know traditional? More traditional than that.”
Where in St. John’s is more traditional for wedding photos than Colonial Building!
Richard is from town, but Kara is originally from St. Anthony. So we hopped over to South Side Road to get some photos with a backdrop a little more like home for her! One of my favourite wedding photos from the day! The trip to the South Side was well worth it!
I mentioned Richard is a Pilot, so we spent some time paying homage to that too! As a wedding photographer, I love when we can incorporate parts of a couples real life into their big day! A few last quiet moments before we headed to the reception at Murray’s Pond. This Sweets Table was the nicest I have ever seen. With subtle hints of Disney, Petite Sweet really, really hit it out of the park! Their work is INCREDIBLE! (And their mini Creme Brulee cups are incredible!) In preparation for their wedding, Kara and Richard took dance lessons and worked on a choreographed number to show their family and friends! It came together beautifully!
Kara and Richard, thank you so much for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. Your wedding was so much fun, and you guys are an amazing couple. I hope you enjoy your images every bit as much as I enjoyed taking them!
