Bringing their 60 guests with them from Florida to celebrate their wedding, Jasmine and Mike wanted to make sure they took in the entire Niagara/winery experience. They asked me to document their fun day playing tourist as they took all their guests on a ride on the Hornblower before checking out the other fun places along Clifton Hill, including the new Niagara Speedway. It was perfect weather for the fun day and a great way for all the guests to get to know one another prior to the wedding.
The next morning, my lovely assistant Jessica tagged along with Mike and his friends as they played a round of golf at Eagle Valley before heading back to their rental to get ready for the day. I spent the morning with Jasmine and her family and friends at their own rental before we head to Chateau Des Charmes to put on her dress and final details.
Mike waited out front for his beautiful bride for their First Look – a sweet moment that included some laughs with this easy going couple. We met up with their wedding party for their portraits and then the family before heading to the ceremony. The beautiful spot overlooked the vineyards that Jasmine and Mike fell in love with during one of their trips north. With some funny moments, happy tears, and a live feed for their friends and family back home, they were finally married!
The reception included so many beautiful moments and details (they had personalized temporary tattoos!!) – Mike kicked off the party with a surprise fireworks show for his bride. And they couldn’t bring all their guests to Canada without serving them poutine! The band The Jones was truly amazing
And the party didn’t stop there – after the official wedding ended, Jasmine, Mike and some friends (and I!) head to Doc MacGilligan’s for some after party fun :)
It was such an incredible day that I am so blessed to have been a part of!
