Keli and Michael’s summer wedding (you can see their beautiful elopement here) took place at the stunning Richiboucto River Resort, and as we drove down the tree-lined driveway, we were amazed at the beauty and perfection of this wedding venue.  Under the boughs of a beautiful tree, Keli and Michael shared the vows they had written and listened to the poems and quotes they had specially picked and made their promise that for them, love would be forever.  Almost as soon as the ceremony was over, a quick thunderstorm moved up the river and rained down in thunderous applause, then as quickly as it came, it moved on, leaving behind the most beautiful golden sunset.

Keli and Michael, your wedding was beautiful, poignant, and your love and happiness were so evidently displayed that perfect August day.  Thank you for being you; you chose perfect details and designed an incredible day while also being amazingly laid back with such a “come what may” attitude it was an honour to be a part of your beautiful wedding!

We waited on the stairs of the historic and picturesque courthouse in Fredericton with Michael; he was smiling and waiting for his beautiful bride to meet him so they could walk hand in hand to their ceremony. This was such a wonderful wedding to be a part of; it was a sweet, secret (at the time) elopement.    I couldn’t help but swoon over her perfect stylish details, how they incorporated close family in the special event and the fact that it was an Elopement…..I mean, come on how thrilling and romantic is that!!!

Keli and Michael thank you so much for including us in your beautiful spring wedding day it was one of our very favourite weddings!!!! Also, we may just have to blog your August wedding/ceremony tomorrow because that wedding was another of our favourite days…..an in love couple, a stunning venue, close family and friends, a personalized ceremony, beautiful details, and an incredible sky….all of our favourite things!!!

The sun shone with Spring’s maternal warmth coaxing out new leaves, new life and the sweet smell of apple blossoms; this wedding day promised to be just perfect.   Beautiful peony bouquets, peals of laughter coming from the room where the girls prepped, and the most divine details and dresses.

We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter and more fun couple that May morning. Vanessa and Shawn were full of fun and happiness, and they were up for anything!! We couldn’t have been happier with how their day went, their photos are some of our very favourites and after a day of capturing beautiful candids and gorgeous portraits, we were even blessed with the perfect sunset on the deck of the Cocoa Room to create just a few more dramatic and romantic images.

Vanessa and Shawn, thanks for trusting us with your day it was beyond lovely!!

Last night we spent the night walking the hall, the light from the bathroom pouring over the hardwood, illuminating the spill of books and toys littered over our path. We switched to rocking for a while, and he calmed as I rubbed his back and drank in the smell of him. I watched numbers on the clock change 8:30, 9:30, 10:00, 1:30, 4:30, 6:30, 8:00 his little sniffle kept waking him; despite the tiredness seeping into my bones, there is nothing I would trade for the honour of knowing and holding sweet Winston.  This morning the light peeked through the window and brushed over his downey hair, his long lashes rested on his chubby cheeks as he nursed, and I held his dimpled little hand and with a sigh he drifted back to dreamland, a little smile on his lips.

I marvel that he is here, after all of the waiting and dreaming and hoping for him, he is now in my arms and has been for 8 whole weeks.  I can’t believe that it has been two months of him being home, and that I am now facing packing up his newborn clothes and putting them away.  Here I am again heart filled but realizing that I am on the fast track again watching another one of my sweet babes grow and change; I try to hold on to his  “little-hood” for as long as I can, basking in the cuddles, his little coos,  the crooked grin he practices on his sisters, all while I also excitedly await getting to know his little personality, idiosyncrasies, and all of his ways as he awakes to the great big world.

I am pleased to introduce to you my sweet Winston.  When he was 8 days old, we went to the studio to get these photos of him at his littlest, sleeping soundly and still curled up and cuddly.

I don’t even have the words to describe how amazing it was to board a plane with Milene and Randy and their amazing group of family and friends all heading to Punta Cana to celebrate one incredible couple and their dream wedding!

We knew Milene and Randy’s wedding was going to be unreal after this awesome couple braved crazy winds and weather to have beautiful images on their engagement shoot.  So we absolutely couldn’t wait for their big day to arrive, and we were not disappointed in the least; the weather, the location and the love this couple share made for an epic wedding shoot and after shoot!!

Milene and Randy thank you for being simply amazing and being up for anything; and just so you know we have basically adopted you two and your family and friends-so you are stuck with us: )
