Achievement Unlocked: Wedding ~ Maddy and Rob’s Wedding Sneak Peek

Yesterday was an amazing day. Not only was the weather absolutely perfect, but spending the day photographing Maddy and Rob’s wedding was exactly where I wanted to be. These two are so amazing, as are their family and friends and everyone had a blast celebrating with them on their big day.

Maddy and Rob share a love of many things, one being video games. Maddy’s grandfather made wine for their wedding and her Dad took inspiration from their Save the Date and Wedding Invitations that we did and created the amazing labels on the bottles. The right photo shows their wedding favours which were hand made by the bride and groom and contained gold chocolate coins as favours. So sweet!

One of my favourite times during a wedding day is right after the couple signs the register and realizes that they are actually married – it is such a sweet moment and Maddy and Rob definitely had one. Here is one I shot right as their maid of honour and best man were signing.

While setting up for the shot on the right, a spider crawled onto Maddy’s dress – this is really exciting and such a happy event because in Portuguese tradition, a spider on your wedding dress signifies good luck in the marriage. Everyone had a little cheer when Rob found it. Maddy is part Portuguese so we made sure to share the news with her family when we got to the reception.

Maddy and Rob were superstars and traipsed into some pretty high forest vegetation for the shot above – Rob was a true gentleman and helped Maddy make sure her dress didn’t pick up any dirt.

Man this crew new how to dance! The dance floor was hopping all night and I just had to post this one of the little flower girl almost asleep on her Dad while one of her brothers had a blast with the glow necklaces!
