It’s always pretty cool when we get to do multiple weddings within the same family. There’s a few less nerves involved on our end, as we already know most of the people involved with the wedding. Kris-Ann and Tom connected with us through Kris-Ann’s sister whose wedding we shot back in 2015 – Stacey + Marc. So needless to say we were going into this wedding day with excitement, looking forward to seeing some familiar faces.
Because we enjoyed working with the Romeo family so much the first time around, we knew it was going to be a breeze dealing with Kris-Ann. We knew we would be in for that same warmth and friendliness! Tom wasn’t any different, he made us feel as if we had known him for years only after meeting him formally for our first consultation. These two just really knew how to make us and all of their guests feel welcome. Their wedding had the elegance, but also that backyard-homey vibe, where people could essentially feel comfortable enough to kick off their shoes and enjoy the party!
This wedding had so many unique things going on for the guest to enjoy. The couple wanted to put their own stamp on everything and do things their own way. Unlike a typical wedding, they had a BBQ spread, cute bibs for their guests, a bonfire pit, and an ice cream truck (what a way to cap off the night!)… the list goes on and on… and honestly, we wouldn’t expect any less from a bride that happens to be a wedding planner as well! Kris-Ann heads Romeo’s Daughter Events which specializes in day-of-coordination for weddings and we know based on what we saw, that she’s good at what she does! On another note about the ‘uniqueness’ of the day, we have to mention that the bride’s wedding dress was designed by a friend and made by her uncle! How awesome is that?!
The wedding ceremony was held at one of the cutest churches we have been to so far – St.Cornelius Church. After seeing it on the day we could tell the building and it’s surroundings were screaming out to have some drone shots taken, and so we got right on it! Besides the stunning location, the ceremony was performed brilliantly by another uncle of the bride’s who also performed Stacey and Marc’s wedding. You can’t get more personal than that!
As for the reception, it was held at the Alton Mill Arts Centre in Alton. It was our first time shooting a wedding here and we found it to be such a cool and unique spot, with lots of different areas to customize your wedding around. We especially loved the first dance location as it was held in the courtyard outside underneath the stars and strings of beautiful lights. You can even view the spot from up above, on a terrace. Perfect for us to get a unique perspective!
It was a such a great day filled with so much love and joy, and we wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much to the couple for letting us be a part of it all. Couldn’t have picked two better people to work with 🙂
Until the next post,
