Hamilton Waterfront Wedding: Blake & Lyndsey
I am so grateful to have been able to assist Melissa Miller at Blake and Lyndsey’s wedding this past Spring. It is always such an honour to witness and capture such a sincere couple as Blake and Lyndsey. All day long we were inspired by the couple’s personal touches in every aspect of their day and their clear love for each other as well as for their family and friends. We were also endlessly giggling at Lyndsey’s dances of excitement and the couple’s silly faces whenever they were together. It was infectious.
It was an unforgettable day and I’m so excited to share these photos with you!
The couple had a First Look before their ceremony. A First Look is when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony in a private moment, usually with the photographer present to capture the emotions. It’s a great way to free up some time in a wedding schedule and take family and wedding party photos early in the day, leaving the rest of the day for celebrating.
The wedding party and family sessions took place at the Steam and Technology Museum. Its 19th century buildings were truly gorgeous backdrops for the photos.
Lyndsey was just bursting with energy throughout the day and there was never a moment when she wasn’t smiling.
I love this image. It captured Lyndsey’s grace perfectly.
The ceremony and reception took place at Hamilton’s BEAUTIFUL Waterfront Centre – an elegant venue overlooking the boat docks and the water. We were also treated to the most perfect sunset imaginable, with rays of orange and pink streaming in through the hall’s big windows. It’s a seriously gorgeous location.
Blake and Lyndsey’s whole wedding was bursting with personal touches. For example, the cupcakes were made by the groom’s sister and consisted of two flavours: the bride’s favorite and the groom’s favorite. So sweet!
The cake toppers were made by the groom and reflected the couple’s favorite board game: Cranium.
The sun started to set right as the reception began and the most beautiful rays of light were came in through the room’s big windows.
