Less than a year ago, we met up with Erica + Kyle in San Diego for their engagement shoot. The four of us could not stop talking, to the point where we almost missed sunset. The only thing we don’t like about these two is the fact that they live so far away, and we can’t just go down the street and grab a pint with them. Fast forward to this summer, for their Evermore wedding outside Carleton Place. As quickly as our time with them in California came and went, we suddenly woke up and realized the summer was almost over, and we were getting ready to photograph their vows.
Their wedding in Almonte at Evermore was incredible. It’s hard to put into words at times how grateful we are for these experiences without sounding disingenuous. Suffice it to say, their friends and family weren’t the only ones holding back tears during the ceremony, first dances, speeches and surprise serenades. (I could have used water housing for my cameras when Kyle sang this little song to Erica). They kept everything but their love simple. Erica’s mother has divine taste, and helped design a bulk of the beautiful items for their day, along with their florist neighbor. It’s hard to pinpoint a favourite moment – maybe it was Erica getting ready at the nearby Bed and Breakfast, and all emotional as she put on her gown – maybe it was watching Kyle practice his guitar song before the ceremony. There were too many beautiful moments to count! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having us there. We’ll never forget it.
