A & M’s Intimate Fall Wedding

A and M were radiating on their wedding day in October. I hadn’t seen A in years – not since we went to elementary school together.  A fond memory I have is walking home with her from school many times and getting an ice cream:)  A and M met online and knew they were meant to be! They bought a house before the wedding and decided on an intimate ceremony in their backyard. They planned everything in about 6 months, which is amazing – kudos to them! A planned and executed her DIY rustic wedding on her own. It was absolutely amazing – she did everything from décor, to her own hair and make up to her own ‘naked’ wedding cake. A got ready in the basement while M got ready upstairs. A’s dress was stunning and fit her gorgeous figure perfectly. M’s parents officiated the wedding – how sweet is that?! A chocked up during her vows but M was there to hold her hand and help her through. Then we headed to Elora Cataract Trail for some pictures – the leaves were a beautiful orange, yellow and red and the air was crisp, cool and refreshing. We made perfect timing and caught the beautiful sunset during our session. Their reception was at the local community center – which has an arena in it, you could see it through the window of the reception hall – and yes some people were skating, it was pretty neat.  A’s lavender homemade cake looked gorgeous along with her rustic decor and hanging lights. I wish these two so many years of bliss ahead! OX
