I have known Dave and Mandy for years. Through the restaurant business at first then Dave through photography. You can check out Dave’s work here. They are an incredibly fun couple and when they approached me about photographing their wedding I think I may have shrieked my “YESSSSSSSSSS”!!! I knew their wedding day would be full of beautiful smiles and many moments I would feel honoured to witness and document. It was an amazing thing to see my friends through my camera and I found myself overwhelmed with emotion at times. Thank you Dave and Mandy for your faith in us. Hilary and I loved every minute with you.
Dave sent a gift for Mandy on the morning of their wedding. It was a gorgeous tiffany’s bracelet.
Mandy’s hair was so elegant and she crafted her own veil.
I have never seen a bouquet quite like Mandy’s! It was made of antique brooches. Amazing.
Dave had custom Chucks made for the entire wedding party. I personally own 4 pairs of them at any given time and am now working on my own custom pair. Dave also had the cuff links engraved with each of their initials.
I caught a glimpse of Mandy’s mom pinning her fathers boutonniere just before the ceremony. Sweet.
I LOVE this shot Hilary grabbed as Mandy saw Dave for the first time.
I love the way Mandy’s parents are looking at Dave as they give their daughter away. Trust.
This could arguably be my favourite photograph from the wedding ceremony. Mandy turned to Dave as she was signing the registry and they both could not contain their happiness.
A peaceful moment alone just after they were pronounced husband and wife. Insert tears here.

Dave and Mandy wanted to head off to Ethel’s Lounge for a beer and some time to hang out with the wedding party before heading out for photos.
Dave had a friend bring this amazing car to Ethel’s for a few photos out front. Fun.
Dave wanted to find a place that was a little “Gritty” to take some shots of the two of them so we headed downtown and found this little alley. I love the contrast between the location and the couple.
We headed back to the ceremony and receptoin site at Steckle Family Farms to finish up our photo shoot and get back to the guests and the beer! The details Dave and Mandy put together for their wedding were so simple and incredibly elegant. Love.
A fun little animation with Dave and Mandy :)
